Selling With An Agent vs. A Direct Sale to

You have options when it comes to selling your house! Make sure you understand all of them before you make your decision! Consider what is available to you before you sign a listing agreement. Does it really make sense for your property? We want to help you reach your goals as quickly and as easily as possible. While you might get a higher final sales price using an agent, the time and costs can be excessive. What will the numbers look like for your property? Here are a few things to consider.

Working With an Agent A Direct Sale to
Commissions / Fees: You will typically pay about 6% of the final sale price to your agent in commission. Some brokerages charge additional fees on top of this. $0 – We are the direct buyer. There are no fees to work with us.
Who Pays Closing Costs?: Usually, the closing costs are paid by the seller. You will have to come up with about 2% of the final sale price to cover the closing costs and fees. $0 – We pay all costs
Inspection & Financing Contingency*: Yes. If you are working with a buyer, and their lender backs out, the sale can fall through. About 15% of them do. Not applicable. We are paying cash to you directly without the use of a lender.
Appraisal Needed: Most likely, yes. Most lenders require a full appraisal before releasing funds. Not required. We will buy the property as-is.
Average Days Until Sold: About 65 days We will make you an offer right away, and can close in as little as a week.
Number of Showings: Hopefully you will have many showings, which will require a neat and tidy space. 1 (Only us and we’ll buy as-is)
Closing Date: The banks and their red tape can delay the sale an additional 30-60 days Whenever YOU decide
Who Pays For Repairs?: This is negotiated between the buyer and seller after the inspection. We do. 

Let’s Do the Math For YOUR Property So You Can Make A Smart and Well-Informed Decision!

There are benefits to both ways of selling your house.

A direct sale will likely not bring in as high of a final sale price as an agent would, however, once you consider the time and costs, is it really the best choice for your house? If your house is run-down or in need of expensive repairs, paying to make it market ready can end up costing you in the long run. There are many benefits to a direct sale you should consider before listing with an agent.

For instance…

Plus, with a fast sale, you can say goodbye to your property tax, homeowner’s insurance, and monthly utility bills.

*An inspection contingency allows the buyer to back out of a sale or negotiate repairs if the inspection comes back showing needed repairs.  Similarly, a financing contingency gives the buyer the ability to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs it to.
