Hi there! If you’re looking to sell a house without a Realtor San Diego, I want to chat with you today regarding a couple things you have to keep in mind, and then throw out some options for you, depending on which particular situation you’re facing. My name is Brian Mollo and I’m the president of Trusted House Buyers. As a leading local, home buying company, we come across this question very often. I’m speaking to you today, in fact, from a house where we’ve been told someone wants to sell a house without a Realtor San Diego. As we start to take a quick look at this home, let’s continue to talk about this topic and concept, and discuss when it might benefit you.
Here we are today in Del Cerro San Diego, in a 4 bedroom, 2 bath home that’s just under 2000 square feet. Now when someone decides to sell their home on their own, it’s a practice often knows, as you probably know, as a “For Sale By Owner”. Just about every homeowner who is looking to pursue this option is doing it to avoid paying realtor fees. Most listing agents in San Diego, who are part of the California Association of Realtors, will charge between 5% and 6% to list your home and those commissions are split usually between the listing agent and the buyer’s agent. This entire cost is the responsibility of the seller, in addition to other closing costs that you will incur. So these can very quickly add up and put a major dent in your net profit you will receive once all is paid out.
Now, with the digital age and so much available online on websites like Zillow, it’s common for a homeowner to feel that the realtor isn’t doing anything more than what they could have been doing. Especially in a tight market like we have now, it is not unusual to see more sellers feel empowered to sell the home themselves hoping to save half or all of the commission. If you have a high priced luxury home or will get top of the market pricing, you’ll want to make sure that you are pricing the home correctly and marketing it as much possible. Those public real estate sites can often be pretty misleading so make sure to do a significant due diligence and try to remove your emotional connection to the home. If your home is newly renovated or a new build, the realtor probably will have access to additional marketing tools that might be worth it, and worth the time and effort during the sale of this type of home.
Now if you’re going to go at it alone and your house is not in a brand new condition, or if you’re thinking, how do I sell my San Diego house as-is, you must understand that in a traditional real estate transaction there can be a lot of paperwork and legalese. If neither you or the potential buyer have any experience in this arena, you might want to speak with a real estate attorney or a title company to give you some advice on how to handle the transaction to make sure it is executed as it needed.
But if you are working with an experienced buyer, they should be able to help you with the standard procedures of the transaction. At Trusted House Buyers, when we work with homeowners, it’s our commitment to provide all documentation to make the sale as smooth as possible. In fact, we review it all completely with the seller so we can be sure there are no misunderstandings and make sure everything is done how it’s supposed to be done, particularly through a neutral third party title company.
And since homeowners who wish to sell a house without a Realtor San Diego are mostly doing it to save money, we always offer to pick up any other costs related to the transaction. This will include title and closing costs, so the net amount we offer you is going to be the net amount that you will receive, minus any mortgages you have. There’s a section on our website that will provide you with a very clear comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of using a real estate agent.
If you are looking to sell a house without a Realtor San Diego, then we might be able to help. Especially if you are looking for a quick close and all cash offer. We buy homes as-is and you can leave any unwanted items behind. We’ve been helping San Diego homeowners in all kinds of situations sell their homes fast for cash. We love providing folks with an option that allows them to sell an unwanted home or one that they need to move on from, in a fair, above-board transaction. There is never any obligation to hear what we can do and there is certainly no obligation to get an offer from us. And if it something that works for you, great. If not, that’s OK too. We are a local, family-run company in San Marcos, San Diego and at Trusted House Buyers, we hope we can be of help. If we can’t, we’ll be pretty quick to let you know that as well.
