If you are considering selling your house, you have an important choice to make; should you work with a real estate agent to sell, or should you contact home buyers in St. Louis? Here’s a look at some of the key differences between the two approaches so that you can choose the method which best suits your needs.
Speed: How quickly are you looking to sell your home? This is a key differentiator in the two approaches. Consider that when selling with a real estate agent, you will need to begin by finding a real estate agent who knows your area well. From there you’ll begin the process of getting your home ready to show. Depending on what sort of repairs need to be made and what sort of cleaning and decluttering needs to happen in order to get it ready to show, you could be looking at several days or multiple weeks before you can begin showing it.
Once your agent begins showing it, the time needed to find a buyer varies greatly. But even once a buyer has been found, there may still be negotiations around repairs to be made, price, and other considerations. And once those negotiations have been settled, you are then going to need to wait a few more weeks to close on the property. In a best-case scenario, you’re facing a couple of months from start to finish when selling with a real estate agent.
On the other hand, when working with St. Louis area home buyers, you can schedule a consultation with one of our expert home buyers right away. After speaking with you and viewing your home, we will make an accurate and fair offer in as little as 24 hours. Once you accept the offer, we can process paperwork and move you towards a closing date in a fraction of the time selling with a real estate agent would take.
Repairs: No matter how well you have taken care of your home, chances are you will need to make some sort of repairs when selling through a real estate agent. There may be behind-the-scenes damage that you are not aware of that is only revealed during the home inspection. Or there may be cosmetic damage that needs to be repaired before the home can even be shown. Regardless, selling with an agent will likely lead to additional expenses and time spent on home repairs.
Home buyers in St. Louis like FasterHouse buy homes as-is, so you don’t have to worry about home repairs. It takes one less headache out of the home selling process.
Pricing/Payment: If you like negotiating over your sales price, then working with a real estate agent is a great option for you. The selling process when working with a realtor often means going back and forth discussing raising or lowering the price based on repairs or the buyer simply wanting to pay less.
When working with home buyers like FasterHouse, our offer is our best offer; there is no negotiation needed. And we pay cash, so you get the money you need and you get it right away.
