Selling To iBuyLehigh vs. Listing With A Local PA Agent
When selling your house in the Lehigh Valley, it’s important to evaluate your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local Lehigh Valley agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket. It also almost means more time, headache, and upfront costs associated with selling your property.

The Traditional Way
- The months it takes to sell add up
Your home is costing you money the whole time it sits on the market. Some people just can’t wait 90 days to sell their house.
- Plenty of showings and disruption to your life
Not only do you have to get your house ready to show, but the number of showings can provide a serious disruption to your life.
- It takes forever to close
It takes anywhere from 30-60 days to close after accepting a buyer’s offer – that’s assuming that their financing doesn’t fall through…
- 8+% in closing costs and fees paid by you, the seller
On average, a seller is responsible for up to 8% of the sales price in the form of closing costs and agent commissions.
- Fees and commissions stack up
In addition to closing costs, commissions and fees stack up and reduce how much goes in your pocket. On average, 6% in commissions/fees are paid by a seller.
- You could be on the hook for repairs
Depending on what pops under during the inspection period, you could be on the hook for repairs that you didn’t know you needed.
- Lots & Lots of Contingenices Most buyers will give you offers with all sorts of contingencies like financing, appraisal, etc. This means you might wait for months, only to find out you need to find a new buyer.
See the table below for a quick comparison between listing your house with an agent vs selling your house directly to iBuyLehigh.
|Selling w/ A Lehigh Valley Agent||SOLD To iBuyLehigh|
|Commissions / Fees:||Up to 6%, paid by you, the seller||NONE|
|Holding Costs:||Each month costs you more in taxes, insurance, utilities, etc.||Because we close quick, you can avoid costs adding up.|
|Who Pays Closing Costs?:||2% on average is paid by you, the seller||No Hidden Costs|
|Inspection & Financing Contingency*:||Yes, sales can fall through||NONE. We Buy AS-IS|
|Appraisal Needed:||Yes, the sale is often subject to appraisal||NONE – We make cash offers|
|Average Days Until Sold:||+/- 91 Days||IMMEDIATE CASH OFFER|
|Number of Showings:||Usually Multiple||1 (Just Us)|
|Closing Date:||30-60 +/- days after accepting buyers offer||The Date Of YOUR CHOICE|
|Who Pays For Repairs?:||Negotiated During Inspection Period||NONE – We pay for all repairs|
*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similar, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.
Here at iBuyLehigh, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal – no contingencies, no headaches, just cash in your pocket.
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 PA house offers. If your house is in very good condition and you have plenty of time to sell your house and are not under any pressure to do so, it might be better to sell your house in the traditional method. However, if you need to sell your house fast, cannot afford to get your house ready to market, or just don’t want to deal with the headache of it all; working with iBuyLehigh is perfect for you.
Yes, here at iBuyLehigh we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we also offer other benefits that the traditional house sale route can’t offer.
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.
Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer
We 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.
Don’t worry about hidden costs
Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in PA, we make it easy for you. There are no hidden costs that will come up during closing.
So when you add up the time you could save by working with iBuyLehigh, 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 homeowners selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option.

Listing with an agent works great if you have a property in perfect condition and can afford to wait for the right buyer. Those are two big if’s, and that may not be the case for you. The Lehigh Valley housing market can be hot and pretty houses are selling fast on the market. However, we can help you avoid the hassles of a traditional sale. Traditional sales come with their complications: buyers may have their financing fall through, having dozens of people walk through your house in an open house, worrying about inspections, all can add stress and months to the process. When you take the agent’s fees and items the buyer is requesing you fix into account, the actual amount you get in your pocket is almost never the price you’re selling for.
What’s the solution to skip the uncertainty and lengthy process? Sell directly to iBuyLehigh – we specialize in buying houses directly from homeowners in Lehigh Valley. Sell your house fast without the hassle of waiting for buyers or the bearing the cost of commissions.
