 Is it feasible to get rid of your Winston home without a real estate broker?

 

If you’re looking to get rid of your property or investment property in Winston without using a broker, Glymph Properties can help.

 

In order to help you achieve your end goal of selling your property or home, we will work with anybody 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 the house for your balance, then you need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. Some people simply cannot afford to pay to sell a house. That’s definitely a ton 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 number of tricks to avoid paying high commissions in a sale.

First, there is a tricky custom that you have to know about.

 

In most real estate transactions in Winston, generally 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 .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.

 

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 in most cases.

Here are a few ways you can benefit from that.

First, take into account 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.

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

 

Many times in Winston, 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 agents bring their clients to walk your property or home. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you’re pricing your house 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 commission and decide not to offer to include it, you are likely to cut your pool of prospective buyers to next to 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 Winston 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 Winston, there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay a commission if you sale your home.

 

Compared with 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 listing in Winston 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’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. Occasionally open houses in Winston can be a wonderful way to sell property, and many times they are a waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, fancy signs – from time to time they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

To effectively sell your home 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 websites where you can post information. But typically just posting ads and having an open house is not enough if your property 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 property. By marketing lots of houses at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of properties.

 

Certain properties may very well require thousands of dollars in marketing expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
