Listing vs. A Direct Sale
You have options, plain and simple. What works for one property, may not work for another. There are many factors that go into a successful sale of a house. How much time, energy and money are you willing to spend? You should always look at your options so you can decide what makes the most sense for you! While an agent may be able to get you a higher final sale price, the amount you spend on commissions, repairs, fees and other costs may not make listing worth it! Dive into the numbers below so you can decide what’s right for you!
|Listing With An Agent||Selling Directly|
|Commissions / Fees:||Expect to pay approximately 6% to 7% in commissions + agent, listing and administrative fees||$0 – You will never pay a dime when you sell to us. What we offer is what you get!|

How Much Is Your Time And Energy Worth?
Just like anything else, there are pros and cons to each decision. For some people, a direct sale is the best choice, while others are better off listing their house. Work the numbers for yourself, and make the decision that is right for you!
There are additional benefits a direct sale can offer that listing can’t compare with. There include:
A fair and simple process with cash in your hand in as little as 7 days
We keep things very simple. We pay you directly and can close fast. A fast close will save you a ton of money on utilities, property taxes and homeowners insurance that you would be paying if you choose to let it sit on the market. If your home takes months to close, these costs can add up to thousands of dollars!
Don’t spend money on repairs or upgrades, you don’t even have to clean up
We don’t want you to worry about cleaning or repairs. And please, don’t spend money upgrading a house you are moving out of. Most upgrades will never help you see higher returns anyway. We love a good project, and we will happily make an offer on your fixer-upper property. Save your time and money for the next piece of real estate you own!

*An inspection contingency allows the buyer an inspection and the ability to back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be made. If you are not able to come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. 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 to close the loan.
