We all know about the traditional route of selling your house with a Realtor, the slow painful way and then there’s the fast route. Which is best for you; which do you want to take? If you really want to sell your house, avoid all the realtor commissions and fees, get a fair all cash offer and have a variety of creative selling options then working with a real estate investor is the path of least, or shall we say, best resistance.
Realtor’s fees are really just a marketing fee. You’re paying them to advertise your house and walk buyers through your door and hopefully bring you an offer. But when you deal with a buyer directly, you get to pocket the saved commission, 6% of the sale price, not to mention saving significant time and headaches.
Say you need to sell my Prosper house and you don’t have time to let it sit on the market for months, deal with non-serious, non-qualified buyers, and fall out of escrow multiple times because the financing or appraisal didn’t come through. When you sell “traditionally”, you rely on a lot of moving parts which are outside of your control to sync up, and quite often, they just don’t.
When you work with a real estate investor, you’re working with a professional who does this for a living. They typically don’t use traditional financing, and will often make you a cash offer.
Working with a realtor to sell my Frisco house it can take months for the sale to close. The fastest typical closing is 30 to 45 days, but an investor can typically close in 7-10 days.
Real estate investors know the local market just as well, usually better than, the realtors in your area. They will give you a fair assessment of your home’s value, with the research and comparable to back it up.

Most investors will give you more than one offer to choose from: an all cash offer and a terms offer. Traditional buyers are usually limited to conventional financing.
An investor’s ability to pay cash or creatively finance a homey means that you get the money you need from the sale of your house, easily, effortlessly and quickly. When you cut out the middleman, (agents and banks) the process generally moves along smoothly. It’s the difference between walking outside and pulling a potato from your garden, and driving to the store to buy one.
You don’t have to make repairs. Investors generally don’t have a home inspection contingency in their contract. In fact, they typically don’t have any contingencies in their contract – inspection and financing being the two top deal breakers in traditional sales.
With investors the condition of your home is of no consequence, whereas if you are trying to sell your property to a retail buyer the potential repairs could be so overwhelming it kills the deal.
Also, most investors are willing and want to help you understand the buying and selling process. They’re in the know, and they want you to be as comfortable as possible during the closing process.
Investors understand that you don’t have time to wait around waiting for your house to sell and the hands of an agent. They’ll give you honest answers about the vale, the price and potential deal structure that will make the most sense for you and your situation.
Selling your house doesn’t have to be hard. It doesn’t have to be stressful, confusing or frustrating. You deserve to get help and relief by working with a professional buyer who buys houses every day.
