We can help if you really want to get rid of a house or investment property in Baton Rouge without a realtor.

Even though we do cooperate with real estate agents, oftentimes it’s best to stay clear of paying real estate agents to be in the middle.

 

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 number of tricks to avoid paying high commissions in a sale.

First, there is an irritating custom that you’ve gotta hear about.

In most cases in Louisiana half of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes to the buyer’s agent.

Think about it…. how does that make sense?Mull it over, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. In essence, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lose money.

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

In all honesty, it goes against logic – it’s just what’s normally done.

Here are a few ways you can use that to your advantage.

 

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

Never under price your property or home – be aware that an informed buyer could possibly expect to have a discount too. If you’re doing the work of one realtor, you should expect to keep that money.

 

In many instances in Baton Rouge , buyers who are not represented by a buyers agent won’t remember to negotiate the buyer’s side commission out of the price for themselves, so do not 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 real estate brokers who will bring their clients to show your property or home. Sure, it’s a lot of money. If you’re pricing your property including that commission, you can always hammer out a far better deal for a purchaser who comes without a realtor.

Now, if you really don’t like the idea of paying the buyer’s agent commission and decide not to offer to pay it, you will cut your pool of prospective buyers to almost nothing.

90 % of transactions happen through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It is the main database that all the real estate agents in Baton Rouge use to obtain information for their clients on the houses, condos, land and investment properties for sale, along with data on the sold prices.

At one time, you had to pay a full commission to get your property or home on the MLS. Now in Baton Rouge , there are a few real estate agents who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Usually, you spend a few hundred bucks and you only pay a commission if you sale your house.

 

Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your property or home to a very wide audience.

Each of the key real estate web sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. acquire data from the MLS. Chances are really good that when you submit your house in Baton Rouge to the MLS, information on your property or home will end up on most of the major web sites within several days.

 

Each of these sites sells ads. They’ve got packages that let you pay to boost 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.

 

Advertising and marketing could be a gamble. At times open houses in Baton Rouge can be a excellent way to sell a property, and from time to time they’re a waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and many times they don’t.

 

To efficiently sell your home all on your own, you have to market it well.

Positioning fliers and signs around your area can generate a number of calls, and there are a lot of free web-sites where you can post information. But generally just putting up advertisements and having an open house is not enough if your property does not appeal to the ordinary home shopper.

In theory, real estate professionals charge significant commissions because they have to spend a whole lot 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.

 

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.
