It’s time to sell your house. You keep asking yourself if you should hire an agent to sell your house in Raleigh, NC. Do you want to pay commissions? How long are you willing to wait for the house to receive an offer? How long will it take to close? What sort of repairs will you have to make? Are you available to show your house with 24-hour notice, or less?
No Property Showings
You won’t have to worry about going through a roller coaster of emotions if you sell your house directly to a professional house buyer in Raleigh, NC. There will be no annoying phone calls in the middle of the night asking if you are available to show your home. You won’t have to worry about running into a buyer’s agent or their clients, or answering questions that you shouldn’t be answering in the first place.
No Commissions or Fees
Real estate agents are paid based on a percentage of the sale price of your house. There will be no commissions paid to a buyer’s or seller’s agent if you do not use an agent. That’s tens of thousands of dollars saved! The standard commission is 3% per side, which means that if you sell your home for $400,000, you’ll have to pay $24,000 in commissions alone, plus the traditional seller’s closing fees and other possible transaction fees to the closing agent and the real estate agent’s office. Typically, real estate investors do not charge commissions or transaction fees, and if they do, they are extremely low.
Waiting Time Frame
Real estate agents have access to the multiple listing service, or MLS, which allows your home to be found when people search for specific property features. This may sound fantastic, but how long will it be available? How quickly will you be contacted with offers? Real estate investors and other direct home buyers typically have a network of other home buyers, so if your home doesn’t fit into their portfolio, it might fit into one of their colleagues’. In either case, this means a very short wait for an offer. Additionally, when you sell your home directly to house buyers in Raleigh, NC, they will typically close faster than traditional buyers and pay in full. Traditional house purchases typically require bank qualifications, mortgage underwriting time, and a property inspection, with the buyer potentially failing to qualify in the end.
Inspections & Repairs
Houses are typically purchased as-is by professional house buyers in NC. As a seller, this means you won’t have to worry about repairs before the closing date or any other unexpected costs. Some companies do not require inspections, making the transaction truly as-is. When you work with a real estate agent, the buyer’s agent will almost always request a property inspection. If they discover a flaw in the structure of the property, they may require you to fix it yourself before the property closes.
You Have Time
When you work with an investor instead of an agent to sell your Raleigh house, you will likely have time after the closing to move out. When you work with an agent in Raleigh, you are normally expected to vacate the house on or before the day of closing.
When you sell to us, you won’t have to clean up or make any repairs after you move out. We’ll buy your house as-is and give you time to find a new one!
