Thinking about selling a triplex quickly without going through traditional way of realtor + MLS. Any advice is appreciated.
The market is hot and a REALTOR will expose it to more buyers than you could possibly do on your own. Homes listed by a REALTOR tend to sell faster and for a higher price, plus you'll have an expert capable of negotiating for you, protecting your interests, preventing scams, complying with the law, and much more. Selling FSBO works well . . . until it doesn't.
But, if you insist on going it alone, just list it on FSBO.com or Craigslist or Facebook and I'm sure you'll get lots of interest. A title company or attorney can provide you with contracts. Title company can't give you advice, but an attorney can (for a fee).
I would argue that now is the absolute worst time to try to sell a property without the experience and expertise of a professional. But if you insist on wasting your own time, you might as well just go on Zillow and list it there.
You will sell quicker and Net more by listing it.
Consider a flat fee MLS listing (~$100-$200), which gets you on the MLS and all major websites. Get a transaction coordinator (~$450) to make sure your paperwork is in order. Offer a market rate commission to the buyer agents. Review all offers and see which nets you the most with the least headaches.
Most buyers have an agent, but a flat fee listing (depending on the listing agreement terms) will give you the flexibility to accepting an offer from an unrepresented buyer without paying any commissions.
Thank you all. I guess we shall be calling realtors. Could you advise me what are the questions you’d ask realtors? This would be the first time selling.
