Should You Sell to an Investor or a Real Estate Agent?

5 Reasons You Should Work with an Investor Instead of a Real Estate Agent

Why should you sell your home to a home buyer/investor instead of a real estate agent?

1. As-is purchase

A real estate agent is going to need you to fix up your home so that it’s “show ready” for months on end while waiting for a buyer. An investor isn’t planning to live in your home, so we don’t need you to clean or make repairs to your house before selling. Even if you have a tenant, we can purchase your home.

2. No commissions or fees

Real estate agents require you to pay commissions or fees. They get an average 6-7% (combined listing agent and selling agent) of the total sale price of your home. For example, if you are selling a $200,000 home, you would pay $12-14k in commissions.

A home buyer/investor will not charge you a commission or extra fees—you get the full offer in your pocket. 

3. Quicker closing

Investors can close much more quickly than a real estate agent because we do not rely on approved financing, the appraised value of your home, or home inspections. We are able to close on most properties within 10 days, and we let you pick the closing date so the transaction is convenient for you.

4. Help solve problems associated with the property

If you are experiencing problems such as title issues, high taxes, foreclosure, bad tenants, or a property tax sale, then choosing a home buyer/investor is a smart choice for you. We are knowledgeable on how to navigate these situations and can help you get out of them, so you can move on with your life!

5. All cash offers

All-cash offers don’t just mean money directly in your pocket—it also means you won’t have to deal with the uncertainty that comes with selling through a real estate agent and waiting for a buyer to be approved for a mortgage.
