Selling To Local House Buy vs. Listing With A Local Real Estate Agent
Even in a sellers market, 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.

Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You Get There...
When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your house offers. Yes, here at Local house Buy we won't be able to offer you full retail value for your house... but we also offer other benefits that going the traditional house sale route can't offer:
1) From offer to close and cash in your hand in as little as 7 days
You can get rid of the headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, you get the drill. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close... you have to figure in all of the costs of holding that property during the time you have that property listed and are waiting for the property to close.
2) Don't worry about fixing anything up
or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyerWe don't care how dirty your house is (we've seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer? great! we love projects)... we'd like to make an offer on your house. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket.
3) Don't worry about paying those pesky closing fees (we've got you covered)
Because we are a full-service professional home buyer, we make it easy for you. We pay for all of the closing costs. What we offer you is what you get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property). Pretty refreshing eh?
So when you add up the time you could save by working with [company], the no-hassle experience, and the money you'll save on commissions, fees, and holding costs while you wait to sell the traditional route... for many area home owners selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option.
