Looking to sell a Detroit property without a realtor?

 

Glymph Properties can easily help if you need to get rid of your home or investment property in Detroit without an agent.

 

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

After all, paying 5-6% of the sale of a house 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.

The art and science to avoiding those bothersome realtor commissions.

First, there is an irritating custom that you have to know about.

 

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

Doesn’t make much sense, right?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 should you pay for the agent on the other side of the table?

 

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

 

You can use that to your benefit in several ways.

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

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

 

Most of the time in Detroit , 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 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 might want to consider offering 2.5% to have real estate agents bring their clients to check out your property or home. Sure, it is a lot of money. If you’re pricing your house including that commission, you can always negotiate a more advantageous deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

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

 

, of transactions happen through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It’s the main database that all the agents in Detroit use to find 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 or home on the MLS. Now in Detroit , there are a few real estate agents who will charge you a service charge 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 with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your property to a very wide audience.

Most of the big real estate websites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. use data from the MLS. Chances are good that when you submit your property in Detroit 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 property.

 

Advertising and marketing can be a gamble. Sometimes open houses in Detroit can be a good way to sell a property, and from time to time they’re a complete waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – occasionally they work, and quite often they don’t.

 

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

Putting fliers and signs around your neighborhood can generate a handful of calls, and there’s a lot of free websites where you can post information. But usually just putting up advertisements and having an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property doesn’t appeal to the everyday home purchaser.

In theory, realtors charge considerable commissions because they have to spend a ton of money up front to publicize your property. By advertising lots of houses at once, they expect to get more 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.
