Selling To House Buyers vs. Listing With An Agent
We love agents. We work with them every day. You may be best served listing your house with an agent. Gasp…did you just say that??
Of course! If we feel that way, we’ll tell you. But even in a seller’s market like Metro Atlanta, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. Dive into the details below to compare your options.
Selling To House Buyers vs. “We Buy Houses Investors”
If you decide not to work with an agent, you still have lots of options. The good news: there are so many “We Buy Houses” folks out there, it’s mind-blowing. The bad news: it can also be difficult to differentiate between them all.
The chart below should help. And definitely read below where we deep dive into the “We Buy Houses” industry.
So, You Want To Sell Your House?
Probably Fast. Probably Easy. And You Want Cash.
Geez…you want it all!
Well, here’s the cool part…YOU CAN!!!
But not all “We Buy Houses” folks are created equal.
Just like these three. All different.
First off, most “We Buy Houses” folks say the same thing:
“We’ll buy your house, as-is, with cash, close in 30 days, we’re awesome, we’re the best…..”
Not everyone can be awesome. Not possible.
And some claims are just plain crazy:
“Give me your address and I’ll send over a contract in 10 minutes”
It’s not possible to prepare an accurate offer that quickly, especially without seeing your house.
Unless they have a lot of these guys.
