    Cash home buyers vs. traditional approaches

    When you’re thinking about selling a home, the individual or organization you choose to aid you in this endeavor is going to have a huge effect on your overall experience.

    Here’s some information comparing your different options so that you can decide for yourself which one is going to be the best for your particular situation.

    Initial comparison

    If you go with a real estate investor like us, you’re going to have some advantages over the traditional approach because there are no fees paid by you. No commissions, no fees, no inspections, no appraisals, etc. For example, the average rate for you’re going to pay a real estate agent is going to be an average of 6% only for their commission. Plus. On top of that, there are often many other fees that stack up as well such as closing costs, contingencies, appraisals, inspections, etc.

    So, for example, if a traditional agent costs you 6% of the cost of the home you’re buying, and then adds another 1% in costs related to preparing the home and staging it, plus adds another 2% for “seller concessions,” this is already up to 9%. Then, when you add on another 1% for closing costs and often, another 1% on top of that for overlap and homeownership costs, that’s 11% or more that you’re paying on the total cost of the home. When you work with us, you pay ZERO fees of any kind and walk away with cash in your pocket.
