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

Needing to avoid realtor commissions and still sell that Santa Ana house…. Glymph Properties can help!


Even though we do cooperate with real estate agents, typically we advocate that you keep clear of paying another person to be in the midst.


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


There are a couple of tricks to avoid paying high commissions on a sale.

Before we get going, there’s one thing you have to know.


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

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


Why in the world should you pay for your “opponent” ?


Seriously, it goes against logic – it’s just what’s traditionally done.

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

First, take into account the commissions paid when you are looking at the 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 house – be aware that an experienced buyer will probably expect to get a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one realtor, you should expect to save that money.


Most of the time in Santa Ana , buyers who are not represented by a buyers 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 want to consider offering 2.5% to realtors who will bring their clients to see your house. Sure, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your house including that commission, you can always hammer out a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a realtor.


On the other hand, if you do not leave room for the buyer’s realtor’s commission, will be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Santa Ana .


Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the brokers in Santa Ana 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 or home on the MLS. Now in Santa Ana , there are a few real estate brokers 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 commission if you sale your house.

Compared to the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is one of the cheapest ways to market your property to a very wide audience.


Most of the big real estate websites like, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. use data from the MLS. Chances are good that when you submit your house in Santa Ana to the MLS, information on your property 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 property.

Advertising and marketing can be a gamble. Sometimes open houses in Santa Ana can be a good way to sell a house, and from time to time they’re a waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, fancy signs – from time to time they work, and quite often they don’t.

To effectively sell your property without any help, you have to market it well.

Positioning fliers and signs around your area can generate a handful of calls, and there’s a lot of free web sites where you can post information. But usually just posting ads and having an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house does not appeal to the everyday home buyer.


In theory, realtors charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to publicize your property. By promoting lots of houses at once, they expect to get more phone calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.


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