 How possible is it to sell a San Bernardino house without having a broker?

Needing to avoid real estate agent commissions and still sell that San Bernardino house…. Glymph Properties can help!

 

Though we do cooperate with agents, in many instances we highly recommend that you stay clear of paying anyone to be in the middle.

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 a number of ways to avoid paying high commissions on your sale.

First, there’s an irritating custom that you’ve gotta know about.

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

 

Doesn’t make much sense, right?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 lower the sales price of your house.

Why should you pay for the agent on the other side of the table?

 

Seriously, it contradicts logic – it is just what is traditionally done.

You can use that to your advantage in several ways.

First, remember to consider the commissions paid when you’re looking at the comparable sales. If the properties similar to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.

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

Most of the time in San Bernardino , buyers who aren’t represented by an agent won’t remember to negotiate the buyer’s side commission out of the price for themselves, so don’t remind them if you don’t want to pay them. Just don’t be surprised if it comes up during the negotiation.

You might want to consider offering 2.5% to realtors who will bring their clients to show your property. Sure, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your house including that commission, you can always work out a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a real estate agent.

Now, if you really don’t like the idea of paying for a buyer’s agent and decide not to offer to pay it, you will cut your pool of prospective buyers to almost nothing.

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the agents in San Bernardino 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 on the MLS. Now in San Bernardino , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a fee just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay commission if you sale your home.

Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your house 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 good that when you submit your house in San Bernardino to the MLS, information on your property will end up on most of the major online websites within days.

Each of those sites sells ads. They have 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.

 

Marketing can be a gamble. Sometimes open houses in San Bernardino can be a good way to sell a property, and many times they’re a complete waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and quite often they don’t.

To efficiently sell your house without any help, you have to market it well.

Placing fliers and signs around your local community can generate a handful of calls, and there are a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But usually just posting flyers and hosting an open house is not enough if your property doesn’t 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 promote your home. By marketing lots of properties at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

 

Selling houses is a numbers game. You have to go through a certain number of no’s before the right buyer comes by and you get a yes. Think Goldilocks… Your buyer is Goldilocks and your property has to be just right.
