Needing to get rid of my Allen place without the need of a broker? - we buy any house

We could certainly help if you need to sell your home or investment property in Allen without a broker.

 

While we do cooperate with agents, most of the time it’s best to avoid paying a person to be in the middle.

 

I mean really…. who wants to pay 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 the property for what you owe, then you need to come out of pocket with the additional 6-9% needed to close. A lot of folks , and in our opinion rightfully so, don’t think they should have to pay anything to sell their property. That’s definitely 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 a sale.

Before we get going, there’s one basic real estate custom you have to know about.

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

Doesn’t make much sense, right?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 property.

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

In truth, it defies reason – it’s just what’s commonly done.

You can use that to your advantage in a few ways.

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

Please don’t under price 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 could expect to save that money.

 

Many times in Allen, 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 may consider offering 2.5% to real estate professionals who will bring their clients to see your house. Of course, it’s a lot of money. If you are pricing your property 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 the buyer’s agent commission and decide not to offer to pay it, you will cut your pool of prospective buyers to just about nothing.

90 % of transactions occur through the MLS , the Multiple Listing Service. It is the main database that all the real estate brokers in Allen 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 property or home on the MLS. Now in Allen, there are a few real estate brokers who will charge you a service charge 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 to 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 websites like Realtor.com, Zillow, Yahoo Homes, etc. receive data from the MLS. Chances are high that when you submit your house in Allen to the MLS, information on your property 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 house.

 

Advertising and marketing is really a gamble. Occasionally open houses in Allen can be a wonderful way to sell a house, and many times they are a complete waste of time. Same with newspaper ads, craigslist postings, FSBO (For Sale By Owner) signs – from time to time they work, and oftentimes they don’t.

To effectively sell your home 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’s a lot of free websites where you can post information. But typically just putting up flyers and hosting an open house isn’t nearly enough if your property 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 property. By promoting lots of properties at once, they expect to get more calls – and obviously, they’ll make good profits by selling lots of houses.

Certain properties may very well require thousands of dollars in advertising expenses before the right buyer happens to see the ad and call.
