Glymph Properties will help if you really have to get rid of a home or investment property in El Paso without a realtor.

In order to help you accomplish your mission of getting rid of your house, Glymph Properties will work with anyone to get the job done for you.

 

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 a house for your balance, then you need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. Some people cannot afford the costs of getting rid of a property. That is definitely a lot of money… especially if you are in an irregular 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’ve gotta hear about.

In most house sales in El Paso , roughly half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to pay for the buyer’s broker.

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 house.

 

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

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

 

You can use that to your benefit in a few ways.

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

Please don’t under price your property or home – be aware that an intelligent buyer might possibly expect to receive a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one agent, you could expect to keep that money.

 

Many times in El Paso , 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 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 may consider offering 2.5% to have agents bring their clients to see your house. Of course, 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 the buyer’s agent fee and decide not to offer to include it, you may cut your pool of prospective buyers to just about nothing.

, of transactions occur through the MLS – that is the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in El Paso 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 property on the MLS. Now in El Paso , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a service charge just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, 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 home to a very wide 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 El Paso to the MLS, information on your house will end up on most of the major internet sites within two or three days.

Each of those sites sells ads. They’ve got 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.

Marketing is really a gamble. Sometimes open houses in El Paso can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they’re a waste of time. It is the same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, fancy signs – sometimes they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

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

Taping fliers and signs around your local community can generate a handful of calls, and there’s a lot of free web sites where you can post information. But typically just putting up advertisements and hosting an open house is not enough if your house does not appeal to the standard home purchaser.

In theory, real estate brokers charge sizeable commissions because they have to spend a good deal of money up front to publicize your home. By advertising lots of houses 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.
