18 Nov 8 Reasons Why Selling Your House to Investors is Better than Realtors
1. You Don’t Have to Pay Commissions and Fees
Most of the time, sellers have to pay commissions and fees to their real estate agent and the agent of the buyer. So, if you sell your house for $200,000, for example, you’ll probably have to subtract about $12,000 off that price and pay it to your real estate agents. But when you sell to an investor without using real estate agents, you do not have to pay these commissions and fees.
2. The Purchase Won’t Fall Through Due to a Bad Inspection or Financing Issues
Did you know that up to 15% of home sales fall through due to inspection and financing contingency? This means that if problems come up during a home inspection, or if the buyer struggles to come up with the proper financing. the entire sale could be off and you’d have to find another buyer and start all over again. But when you sell to an investor, there’s no inspection or financing contingency.
3. You Won’t Have to Deal with Showings
If you sell through a real estate agent you’ll probably have multiple showings, requiring you to get the house ready and leave your property for a few hours during every showing and open house. This can be a bit annoying! When selling to an investor, there is only one showing.
4. You Won’t Have to Pay for Repairs
Selling through an agent requires that you make repairs. You’ll probably need to repair things before putting your house on the market AND pay for repairs that come up during your home inspection. That’s money and time out the window, but with us, we pay for ALL the repairs and take care of them ourselves.
5. There’s No Appraisal Needed
Most home sales require an appraisal, which takes time and controls how much the home will sell for in the end. With an investor, no appraisal is necessary, saving you time and possibly even saving you money.
6. You’ll Get an Immediate Cash Offer
An investor understands your busy schedule and instead of taking your valuable time and making you wait on an offer, you’ll get an immediate cash offer. When you work with us, we will set up an appointment during which we’ll make you a fair cash offer. It’s fast and easy for you!
7. You Can Schedule the Sale Around Your Needs
With a traditional real estate sale, you can’t choose when someone buys your house. It might be inconvenient timing when the right buyer finally appears. But when you sell to an investor like MarketPro Homebuyers, you can choose your exact closing date to ensure the sale of your home fits into your schedule.
8. You’ll Get Cash In Hand Quickly
You can have cash in your hands within approximately a week of closing! If you do things the traditional way, the closing date is generally 30 to 60 days after you accept the buyer’s offer, but with this method of selling your home, you can wrap things up much more quickly.
