Glymph Properties will be able to help if you really need to sell your home or investment property in Lubbock without a broker.

 

We aim to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with agents, but we will if it’s required.

After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a house 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.

 

The art to avoiding those bothersome realtor commissions.

Before we get going, there’s one basic real estate custom you have to know about.

In most cases in Texas half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to the buyer’s agent.

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 lower the sales price of your property.

 

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

In truth, it goes against logic – it is just what is commonly done.

You can use that to your benefit in a number of ways.

 

First, take into account the commissions paid when you happen to be looking at local 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 should expect to keep that money.

 

Many times in Lubbock , buyers who aren’t 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 do not want to pay them. Just don’t be surprised if it comes up during the negotiation.

You may consider offering 2.5% to real estate professionals who will bring their clients to see your house. Sure, it is a lot of money. If you’re pricing your property including that commission, you can always give a more beneficial deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

 

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 are going to 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 real estate brokers in Lubbock 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 house on the MLS. Now in Lubbock , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a fee just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay a commission if the sale closes.

 

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 Lubbock to the MLS, information on your property will end up on most of the major internet sites within two or three days.

Each of those sites sells ads. They have 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.

 

Advertising and marketing is really a gamble. Occasionally open houses in Lubbock can be a wonderful way to sell property, and many times they are a waste of time. It’s the exact same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, FSBO (For Sale By Owner) signs – from time to time they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

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

Taping 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 typically just putting up advertisements and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house does not appeal to the standard home shopper.

 

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 promoting lots of houses at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

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 house has to be just right.
