It’s not easy to let go of a place you’ve cherished for so long, probably spent many special moments there as well. Yet, for some reason, you want to sell your house, as soon as possible, who do you turn to?
If you went on Google and searched “sell my house fast” or “how to sell my house”, you will come across websites offering you either of the 2 choices – selling your house through an agent or selling it to a private home buyer.
People mostly turn to an agent, because they mostly don’t know that there’s a much more convenient way to do it. If you’re selling your home for the first time and you have no idea how to go about it, you’re in luck. That’s exactly what we are covering in this article.
Selling Through an Agent
This is pretty self-explanatory. You find an agent which, as we said above, is as simple as Googling “sell my house fast” or “how to sell my house”. An agent gets in touch with you, advertises your property in their target market, and finds you a lot of prospects.
These prospects visit and check every inch of the house, and if they deem fit, they discuss the price with the agent and finalize an offer to purchase your property. Now here are a few things to consider when selling your house through a realtor or an agent.
- You’re paying 6% real estate commission to an agent. Which is huge!
- It will take 1-2 months of scouting for a good agent before you can actually list the house for sale.
- Many different people will come and check your house as a usual occurrence, which may be bothersome, especially if you’re a private person.
- You pay for your house repairs so that the potential buyers have nothing to complain about, before buying.
- It will take 2-3 months to close and get paid for selling your house.
Selling Through iBuyLehigh
Selling your house to an investor like us, is considered selling your house off-market. It means you would not have to advertise your house for sale and go through the associated headaches. Not having to rely on an agent opens up a great opportunity for both buyers and the seller, for multiple reasons.
If you understand who we are, you’ll see that we operate very differently from an agent. Here’s what you get working with us.
If you were to get an agent, you would’ve had to pay at least 6% commission for their service, which is a significant amount. Price is always a major concern and keeping that in mind, we don’t charge anything at all. That means no commissions, no closing costs, and no hidden charges whatsoever.
We Take Care of Repairs
Forget not having to pay any commission, if you sell your house through IBuyLehigh, you don’t have to worry about house repairs.
Most house buyers are looking for properties in good condition. Sometimes these repairs cost a lot and take a lot of time, but that’s not your concern at all. We buy houses in the condition they are, so you don’t need to spend more money on repairs.
Get Paid Right Away
Go to an agent and they will take their time finding all the sellers, which could take them up 3-6 months and then an additional 2-3 months for closing so you can get paid. Since there is no inspection and financing contingency, which results in many sales falling through, you get paid immediately.
There are many people who’d rather have no fuss and would just want their place to be sold as soon as possible. If you were to go to an agent, they would advertise it amongst their potential buyers and would do enough back and forth for the turnaround time to take forever. With iBuyLehigh, you can sell your house within a week if you want. If you want to sell in a year, we can help with that too!
No Privacy Concerns
Let’s say you’re a politician, or a high-profile businessman, a popular actor, or, most likely, a regular person who has no interest in spotlighting their dealings. Why would you want to share sensitive information like pictures, floor plans, and the address of your home with everyone?
There are many people who don’t want any information about their finances or personal life publicly available. When listing with an agent, everyone will know that you are selling your house and how much you are getting it for. Beyond the pricing, we believe it’s important for people to safeguard private information, which is why there will be NO need to have your home publicly posted.
