There are definitely benefits to BOTH ways of selling! Listing your house will likely procure a higher final sale price, but you need to make sure it is worth what you spend to list if. For some properties, repairs, agent fees and the cost of holding the property for months at a time, make a direct sale the more profitable option.
There are several other benefits to a direct sale people don’t always realize. These include:
- The ability to close on your property in as little as 9 days.
- Selling your house without paying a dime towards repairs or upgrades.
- By not involving an agent, you will save on commissions and other costs of selling the traditional way.
- A fast sale will end your obligation to taxes, homeowners insurance, and monthly utility bills.
- You will be able to move on and plan for your future without the mystery of if or when your house will sell. From day 1, you will know exactly how much you are getting and on what day!
- You will not need to clean or keep it clean for showings. Simply take what you want to keep, and we will handle the rest!
- We make things easy by taking care of all the closing costs and fees.

*An inspection contingency allows the buyer time for an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. 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 the bank requires to close the loan.
