I mean really…. who wants to give up 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 a house for what’s left on the mortgage, then you will need to write a check for the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of people , and in our opinion rightfully so, don’t think they should have to pay anything to sell a property or home. That’s 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 few tricks to avoid paying high commissions on your sale.
First, there’s a tricky custom that you have to hear about.
In most cases in Virginia 1/2 of the 6-8% commission you pay as the seller goes directly to the buyer’s real estate agent.
Did you get that… you are paying for your buyer’s realtor .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 cash.
Why should you pay for the agent on the other side of the table?
In all honesty, it goes against reason – it is just what is normally done in most cases.
You can use that to your advantage in a number of ways.
First, remember to include the commissions paid when you happen to be looking at local comparable sales. If the properties comparable to yours sold for prices that included commissions, take that into account.
Never under value your property or home – be aware that an informed buyer could possibly expect to have a discount too. If you are doing the work of one realtor, you should expect to save that money.
In many instances in Virginia Beach , 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 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 have agents bring their clients to see your property or home. Sure, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your property including that commission, you can always hammer out a far better 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, you’ll be excluding most of the buyers in the market in Virginia Beach .
, of transactions occur through the MLS – that’s the Multiple Listing Service. It is the main database that all the real estate agents in Virginia Beach 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 Virginia Beach , 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 property.
Compared to 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 Virginia Beach 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 Virginia Beach can be a excellent way to sell a property, and from time to time they are a complete 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 posting advertisements and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your house doesn’t 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 home has to be just right.
