Is it possible to get rid of your Bakersfield house without a real estate agent?

Looking to avoid realtor commissions and still sell your Bakersfield property…. Glymph Properties can help!

 

In an attempt to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with real estate brokers, but we will if it’s required.

 

After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a property in a commission is a good deal of money. In certain situations, brokers and real estate agents can be very useful and earn their commission. Not always.

There are several tricks to avoid paying high commissions in your sale.

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Most of the time in Bakersfield , buyers who aren’t represented by an agent will not 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 choose to consider offering 2.5% to realtors who will bring their clients to see your property. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you’re pricing your property including that commission, you can always give a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a real estate agent.

 

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 can expect to cut your pool of prospective buyers to virtually nothing.

, of transactions happen through the MLS – that’s the Multiple Listing Service. It is the main database that all the brokers in Bakersfield 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 on the MLS. Now in Bakersfield , there are a few real estate agents who will charge you a fee just to list your property on the MLS. Generally, you spend a few hundred bucks 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 house to a very wide audience.

 

Most of the big real estate search sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. use data from the MLS. Chances are really good that when you submit your property in Bakersfield 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. Sometimes open houses in Bakersfield can be a good way to sell a house, and from time to time they are a waste of time. It is the same with newspaper ads, craigslist posts, FSBO (For Sale By Owner) signs – sometimes they work, and quite often they don’t.

 

To efficiently sell your home without any help, you have to market it well.

Taping fliers and signs around your neighborhood can generate a number of calls, and there are a lot of free websites where you can post information. But usually just putting up flyers and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house doesn’t appeal to the everyday home buyer.

In theory, real estate agents charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to market your home. 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 houses.

Some properties might require thousands of dollars in marketing expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
