Needing to avoid real estate agent commissions and still sell a Cleveland house…. Glymph Properties can help!

 

We aim to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with realtors, but we will if need be.

 

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 accomplish your goal of selling a house for what you owe, then you need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of folks , and in our opinion rightfully so, don’t think they should have to pay anything to sell a property or home. That’s a ton 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 annoying realtor commissions.

First, there is an irritating custom that you have to hear about.

 

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

 

Doesn’t make much sense, right?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 reason – it’s just what’s normally done in most cases.

 

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

 

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

Never under value 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 keep that money.

 

In many instances in Cleveland , 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 real estate agents bring their clients to check out your property or home. Sure, it is a lot of money. If you are 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 don’t leave room for the buyer’s agent’s commission, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Cleveland .

 

90 % of transactions take place through the MLS – that’s the Multiple Listing Service. It is the main database that all the real estate agents in Cleveland 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 Cleveland , 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 dollars and you only pay commission if you sale your house.

Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way 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 Cleveland to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major web sites within several days.

Each of these 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 property.

 

Advertising and marketing could be a gamble. At times open houses in Cleveland can be a excellent way to sell a property, and from time to time they’re a waste of time. 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 market 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 having an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property does not 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 calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

 

Selling properties 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.
