Looking to avoid realtor commissions and still sell a Greensboro property…. we can help!

Glymph Properties aims to get you the most money possible so we prefer not to work with real estate agents, but we will if need be.

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

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

 

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

Think about it…. how does that make sense?Let it sink in, you are literally paying for the buyer’s agent to negotiate against you. Basically, you are negotiating against yourself. You are paying to lower the sales price of your house.

 

How in the world does it make sense for you to do that?

In truth, it contradicts logic – it is just what’s commonly done in most cases.

You can use that to your advantage in several ways.

 

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

 

Please don’t under value your property – be aware that an intelligent buyer might possibly expect to receive a discount too. If you are doing the work of one agent, you should expect to keep that money.

Many times in Greensboro , 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 do not want to pay them. Just don’t be surprised if it comes up during the negotiation.

 

You may consider offering 2.5% to have real estate agents bring their clients to check out your property or home. Sure, it’s a lot of money. If you’re pricing your house including that commission, you can always give a more beneficial deal for a purchaser who comes without a broker.

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

 

Almost all real estate transactions occur through the MLS ( Multiple Listing Service). It’s the main database that all the real estate brokers in Greensboro use to gain access to 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 house on the MLS. Now in Greensboro , there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a flat fee just to list your property on the MLS. Typically, you spend a few hundred dollars and you only pay commission if the sale closes.

 

Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, the MLS is a cheap way to market your home to the largest audience.

Many of the important real estate search sites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. receive data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your house in Greensboro to the MLS, information on your house will end up on most of the major internet sites within two or three days.

 

Each of these sites sells ads. They have packages that let you pay to enrich 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.

Marketing is really a gamble. Sometimes open houses in Greensboro can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they are a waste of time. It’s exactly the same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, Fancy For Sale By Owner signs – sometimes they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

To efficiently sell your house all by yourself, you have to market it well.

Taping fliers and signs around your local community can generate a handful of calls, and there are a lot of free web sites where you can post information. But typically just putting up ads and having an open house is not enough if your house does not appeal to the standard home buyer.

In theory, real estate brokers charge sizeable commissions because they have to spend a good deal of money up front to publicize your home. 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.

Selling properties 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.
