 How easy is it to sell your Durham house without the need of a real estate agent?

 

Glymph Properties could buy your Durham property without charging real estate broker commissions.

 

Although we do cooperate with real estate agents, most times it’s best to refrain from paying another person to be in the midst.

 

After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a house in a commission is a ton of money. In certain situations, brokers and real estate agents can be very useful and earn their commission. Not always.

There are several ways to avoid paying high commissions on a sale.

First, there is a tricky custom that you’ve gotta know about.

 

In most cases in North Carolina 1/2 of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to the buyer’s real estate broker.

 

Doesn’t make much sense, right?Let it sink in, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. Basically, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lose cash.

 

Why in the world would you pay for your “opponent” ?

 

In truth, it defies reason – it’s just what is commonly done in most cases.

You can use that to your advantage in several ways.

First, factor in the commissions paid when you happen to be looking at the comparable sales. If the properties similar to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.

 

Please don’t under price your house – be aware that an intelligent buyer might possibly expect to receive a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one realtor, you could expect to save that money.

 

Many times in Durham , buyers who are not represented by a buyers agent won’t remember to negotiate the buyer’s side commission out of the price for themselves, so do not remind them if you don’t want to pay them. Just don’t be surprised if it comes up during the negotiation.

You may consider offering 2.5% to buyer’s agents who will bring their clients to show your house. Sure, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your house including that commission, you can always give a more beneficial deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

 

Having said that, if you don’t leave room for the buyer’s agent’s commission, will be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Durham .

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Durham use to gain access to information for their clients on the houses, condos, land and investment properties for sale, along with data on the sold prices.

 

In the past, you had to pay a full commission to get your property or home on the MLS. Now in Durham , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay commission if you sale your property.

 

Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your home to the largest audience.

Many of the important real estate websites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. receive data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your property in Durham to the MLS, information on your house will end up on most of the major internet sites within two or three days.

 

Each of those sites sells ads. They’ve got packages that let you pay to enrich your listing, feature it at the top of the search, and a lot of other bells and whistles that might or might not get an interested buyer to buy your house.

Marketing is really a gamble. At times open houses in Durham can be a wonderful way to sell a property, and many times they are a waste of time. It’s the same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

 

To successfully sell your house all by yourself, you have to market it well.

Taping fliers and signs around your local community can generate a handful of calls, and there’s a lot of free websites where you can post information. But typically just putting up ads and hosting an open house is not enough if your property doesn’t appeal to the standard home purchaser.

 

In theory, real estate brokers charge sizeable commissions because they have to spend a good deal of money up front to publicize your property. By marketing lots of properties at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

Certain properties might require thousands of dollars in marketing expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
