I really, really don't want to hire a realtor... Can I still get rid of my Irvine property?-sell your house fast

 

Glymph Properties will buy your Irvine property without charging real estate agent commissions.

Eventhough we do cooperate with agents, typically it’s best to stay away from paying another person to be in the middle.

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 what you owe, then you need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of people , and in our opinion rightfully so, don’t think they should have to pay anything to sell their property or home. That is definitely a lot of money… especially if you are in an abnormal 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.

There are a few ways to avoid paying high commissions on a sale.

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

 

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

 

Think about it…. how does that make sense?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 lose cash.

 

How in the world does it make sense for you to do that?

In truth, it goes against reason – it’s just what’s commonly done in most cases.

You can use that to your advantage in several ways.

 

First, remember to include 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.

Please don’t under price your house – be aware that an intelligent buyer might possibly expect to receive a discount too. If you are doing the work of one realtor, you should expect to save that money.

Many times in Irvine , 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 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 realtors bring their clients to see your house. Of course, it is a lot of money. If you are pricing your house including that commission, you can always give a more beneficial deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

On the other hand, if you don’t leave room for the buyer’s realtor’s commission, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Irvine .

– that is of transactions happen through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Irvine 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 Irvine , 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 you sale your house.

 

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 web sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. receive data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your house in Irvine to the MLS, information on your property or home 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 property.

Advertising and marketing is really a gamble. Sometimes open houses in Irvine can be a wonderful way to sell property, and many times they’re a complete waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – from time to time they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

 

To successfully sell your home 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 are a lot of free websites where you can post information. But typically just posting ads and having an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property doesn’t 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 home. By advertising lots of houses 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.
