 How simple is it to sell my own Baton Rouge property without having a realtor?

 

Looking to avoid real estate broker commissions and still sell a Baton Rouge property…. we can help!

Even though we do cooperate with agents, typically we propose that you stay away from paying real estate agents to be in the midst.

I mean really…. who wants to give away 5-6%. That’s 5-6% of the sales price as well, not 5-6% of any money you make. So… if you succeed in selling the house for your balance, then you will need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of people are not able to afford the costs of getting rid of a property. That’s a lot of money… especially if you are in an unusual financial situation like “hey I just don’t want to pay to sell my house” or divorce, or bankruptcy, or foreclosure, or just money being tight because of taxes, tenant, or property expenses.

 

The art to avoiding those bothersome realtor commissions.

First, there is an irritating custom that you’ve gotta hear about.

 

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

 

Did that little tid-bit register… 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 lower the sales price of your property.

 

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

 

Seriously, it contradicts reason – it is just what is traditionally done in most cases.

 

Here are a few ways you can benefit from that.

 

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

 

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

Most of the time in Baton Rouge , 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 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 choose to consider offering 2.5% to have agents bring their clients to check out your property or home. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you’re pricing your house including that commission, you can always hammer out a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without an agent.

On the flip side, if you don’t leave room for the buyer’s realtor’s commission, will be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Baton Rouge .

 

90 % of transactions occur through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the brokers in Baton Rouge use to find information for their clients on the houses, condos, land and investment properties for sale, along with data on the sold prices.

Once upon a time, you had to pay a full commission to get your property or home on the MLS. Now in Baton Rouge , there are a few agents who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay commission if you sale your property.

 

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

 

Most of the big real estate web sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. use data from the MLS. Chances are good that when you submit your house in Baton Rouge 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 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 house.

Marketing can be a gamble. At times open houses in Baton Rouge can be a good way to sell a property, and many times they’re a waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – from time to time they work, and quite often they don’t.

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

Putting fliers and signs around your community can generate a handful of calls, and there’s a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But usually just putting up advertisements and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house doesn’t appeal to the everyday home buyer.

 

In theory, real estate professionals charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to advertise your house. 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.

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.
