Did you know that you don’t have to sell your house with an agent? While many homeowners immediately seek the help of a real estate firm, there are other…
More Cost-effective Ways To Sell Your House.
For instance, you could choose to carry the note yourself or sell the property directly to a professional buyer.
But, the question is, what’s the right choice for you?
Before you sign any agreements or complicated contracts, check out our article below and find out how a direct sale can benefit your situation!
The Commission Factor
When you choose to sell directly to a company such as us, at Sunshine State Buyers, there’s no need to panic about hefty commission fees. Our company and others like us don’t charge thousands of dollars in commission costs (up to 6% of the sale total).
Plus, there’s no marketing costs, listing fees, or photographers to pay. When you work with a direct buyer, the property is typically sold in AS-IS condition, so any cash that would have covered advertising expenses can stay in your pocket.
No Clean-Up Or Repairs
Selling your Miami house the conventional way will require you to ensure your home is market-ready for the MLS. Even small damages can severely lower your potential buyer’s perceived value of the home.
Even minor repairs and touch-ups can add up quickly. Plus, you can’t forget to take into consideration the time, effort, and money involved with cleaning up, keeping it clean, and staging the property (which involves boxing up and storing personal belongings while buyers view your home).
Even if these costs can be worth it in the long run, you should still factor them in before listing your Miami home.
When you work with a company like us, the closing date will be up to you. We have the funds available to purchase properties almost immediately, so there’s no need to wait weeks on end worrying about whether the buyer’s financing will go through.
On the flip side, we will NOT rush you into a sale.
We understand that selling and relocating (even nearby) can be stressful, hence why our goal is to ensure the selling process is as simple as possible. If you choose to accept an offer from our company, Sunshine State Buyers, we work around a schedule that suits you.
A Fast Sale Will Save You Money
Point blank, the longer you hold onto the house, the more it is costing you. Investors know this, which is why flipping a house quickly is every investor’s aim!
By selling to a direct buyer, you could end up saving yourself months of wasted time and money. Utility bills, homeowners insurance, property taxes, mortgage payments, and not to mention routine maintenance costs – all additional expenses that you have to cover up until the day of closing.
A Direct Sale Offers Guarantees, While A Listing Does Not
It’s no surprise that there’s a lot of uncertainty when it comes to buying and selling properties. Deals fall through every day.
Banks are doing more rigorous background checks and taking longer and longer to fund typical loans. In some ways selling your house on the open market is similar to living in limbo. You don’t know when you’ll sell, how much for, what the terms will be, who to, and whether they’ll be unforeseen obstacles to tackle before you secure a deal.
An agent can list your house for any price you want, even if it’s been inflated to get force your hand into signing a listing agreement.
There is absolutely NO guarantee that you will get the price you want when you list your Miami house!
However, with a direct sale, you’ll have the knowledge you need upfront to move on and make plans for the future. You’ll know the exact closing date and the amount you’ll walk away with.
