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

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

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

There are a few tricks to avoid paying high commissions in your sale.

First, there is a tricky custom that you have to hear about.

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

Did you get that… you are paying for your buyer’s realtor .Give it a second- let it really sink in, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. Simply, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lose cash.

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

 

Seriously, it goes against logic – it is just what is traditionally done.

 

Here are a few ways you can benefit from that.

 

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

 

Be careful, don’t under price your property or home – be aware that an experienced buyer will probably expect to receive a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one agent, you should expect to keep that money.

 

Most of the time in Long Beach , 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 see your property. Sure, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your property including that commission, you can always hammer out a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a realtor.

On the flip side, if you do not leave room for the buyer’s agent’s commission, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Long Beach .

 

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Long Beach use to find 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 Long Beach , there are a few real estate agents who will charge you a service charge just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay a commission if the sale closes.

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

 

Most of the big real estate websites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. use data from the MLS. Chances are really good that when you submit your property in Long Beach to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major online websites within days.

 

Each of those sites sells ads. They’ve got packages that let you pay to greatly enhance 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 property.

Advertising can be a gamble. Occasionally open houses in Long Beach can be a good way to sell a house, and at times they’re a complete waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – from time to time they work, and quite often they don’t.

To successfully sell your house without any help, you have to advertise it well.

Placing fliers and signs around your community can generate a number of calls, and there’s a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But usually just posting flyers and having an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property does not appeal to the everyday home purchaser.

 

In theory, real estate agents charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to market your property. By promoting lots of houses at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

 

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