Selling Tovs. Listing With A Local Metro Atlanta Real Estate Agent
Even in a seller’s market like Metro Atlanta, it’s smart to look at the choices you have when selling your house. The details about each selling option can help you see the true cost and the timing involved. Selling with a metro Atlanta agent might bring you a higher sales price but that may not mean you ultimately put more money in your pocket. Nor does is mean you will sell quickly or at all! Agents can struggle selling houses that have problems. Consider the costs of selling your home “Traditionally” versus selling “Direct” below:
|Selling w/ An Agent||SOLD To Resideum, LLC|
|Commissions / Fees:||6% on average is paid by you, the seller|
|Who Pays Closing Costs?:||2-3% on average is paid by you, the seller||– We pay all costs|
|Inspection & Financing Contingency*:||Yes, sales can fall through|
|Appraisal Required:||Yes, the sale is often subject to appraisal||cash offers– We make|
|Average Days Until Sold:||+/- 91 Days|
|Number of Showings:||Could be dozens.||(Just Us)|
|Closing Date:||30-60 +/- days after accepting buyers offer|
|Who Pays For Repairs?:||Negotiated During Inspection Period||– We pay for all repairs|
*An inspection contingency gives the buyer a chance to have the property inspected, and they can either back out of the deal or negotiate a lower price (or ask the seller to make costly repairs) if the house needs repairs. If you can’t reach an acceptable price and other terms with the buyer, the buyer can cancel the sale. Similarly, a financing contingency allows the buyer to cancel the purchase if they can’t obtain a mortgage loan or if the appraisal isn’t high enough to meet the lender requirements for the loan.
Here at Resideum, LLC, we buy houses as-is in any condition, so a third-party inspection is not necessary and it won’t kill a sale. Also, we aren’t dependent on traditional mortgage loans, so you can count on our deal closing, and closing very quickly.
Examine Your Numbers And See Which Selling Option Helps You Get There…
When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your Metro Atlanta house offers.
Yes, here at Resideum we likely won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we DO offer several other benefits that the “traditional” house sale route can’t offer.
1. From offer to close and cash in your hand as quickly as 7 days
Be rid of your property and all the headaches it is causing you fast! Put a stop to any further payments for taxes, utilities, insurance, mortgage payments, yard maintenance and any other expenses you have been making. If you sell your house through a real estate agent, expect to continue making all of those payments for 60 to 90 days or longer while you wait for a buyer to close. When you are doing your calculations of the cost of each house-selling option, you must include these “carrying costs.”
2. You don’t have to make any repairs
We buy houses as-is, in ANY condition. We buy houses that are destroyed by tornados, burned by fire, or just neglected over time. So, when we tell you that you don’t have to repair or clean anything, we mean it! If you thought your house was unsellable due to damage, think again! We would love to make you an offer on your house. We’ll take care of the repairs. Save your money and use it for other things.
3. Forget about cleaning your house for showings
When you list a house for sale with a real estate agent, you will have to deep-clean your house, then keep cleaning it over and over again, every time a potential buyer requests a showing. And you will need to get out of the house when the agent brings those buyers. When you sell to us, you don’t have to move a single spec of dust. We love dust (and worse)!
4. Don’t pay closing costs (we do that)
Why should you have to spend money when selling your house? We pay the closing costs so you don’t have to. As a full-service professional home buyer here in Metro Atlanta, we strive to make this process as easy and painless as possible. The price we offer is what you will put in your pocket (less whatever you still owe on your mortgage and any other encumbrances on the property).
So when you make the calculations about which selling option is right for you, remember that Resideum offers you big savings in time, a no-hassle experience, zero commission, no fees, no carrying costs, no repair costs, no cleaning costs, no closing costs and ultimately, peace of mind.
You can have all this in just a few days, if you want it.
