 How manageable is it to sell my Granbury home without having a broker?

 

If you’re trying to get rid of your home or investment property in Granbury without using an agent, we can help.

 

In order to help you realize your objective of selling your property, Glymph Properties will work with anybody to get the job done for you.

 

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

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

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

In most sales in Granbury, roughly half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to pay for the buyer’s broker.

Think about it…. how does that make sense?Mull it over, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. In essence, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lose cash.

 

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

In all honesty, it goes against logic – it is just what’s normally done in most cases.

Here are a few ways you can use that to your advantage.

 

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

Never under price your property or home – be aware that an informed buyer could possibly expect to have a discount too. If you are doing the work of one agent, you should expect to save that money.

 

In many instances in Granbury, buyers who are not represented by an 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 choose to consider offering 2.5% to have brokers bring their clients to check out your property or home. Of course, it is a lot of money. If you’re pricing your house including that commission, you can always hammer out a far better deal for a purchaser who comes without a realtor.

Having said that, if you do not leave room for the buyer’s realtor’s commission, will be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Granbury.

90 % of transactions happen through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the real estate agents in Granbury use to obtain information for their clients on the houses, condos, land and investment properties for sale, along with data on the sold prices.

At one time, you had to pay a full commission to get your property or home on the MLS. Now in Granbury, there are a few real estate agents who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Usually, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay a commission if you sale your home.

 

Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is one of the cheapest ways to market your property or home to a very wide audience.

Each of the key real estate web sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. acquire data from the MLS. Chances are really good that when you submit your house in Granbury to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major web sites within several days.

Each of those sites sells ads. They have packages that let you pay to boost 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.

Advertising and marketing could be a gamble. At times open houses in Granbury can be a excellent way to sell a property, and from time to time they’re a waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and many times they don’t.

To efficiently sell your home all on your own, you have to advertise it well.

Positioning fliers and signs around your area can generate a number of calls, and there’s a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But generally just posting advertisements and hosting an open house is not enough if your property doesn’t appeal to the ordinary home shopper.

In theory, real estate professionals charge significant commissions because they have to spend a whole lot of money up front to market your home. By promoting lots of properties at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

Some properties would possibly require thousands of dollars in marketing expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
