Pros of For Sale by Owner in Raleigh
Your home is usually your biggest asset so wouldn’t you want to have a say in how the transaction goes? There are many benefits of for sale by owner’s process which involves saving a lot of money in real estate commissions. Here is a list of pros that an owner gains by selling their house themselves:
- You make more money from the sale
Since there are no real estate agents involved, you don’t have to pay for it. Real estate agents usually charge a percentage fee based on sale price so you can save on commissions, generally 6% of the sale price of the house. On a $250,000 house this is $15,000, WOW.
- You are in control of the sale
Selling your largest asset can be a scary and intimidating process, but wouldn’t you like to be in control of such a large investment? When you sell by owner you get to meet the people that are purchasing your home. You can sell it to who you like best, rather than just anyone that the agent sends your agents way. I know your neighbors will appreciate you vetting the new people rather than just any person with the money.
- You can devote your full attention to the sale
Real estate agents usually have multiple clients at a time and can only devote so much time to each one. You should be your biggest advocate for getting your house sold fast and for the highest price. With craiglist, facebook, FSBO.com and sites like Zillow and Trulia it is extremely easy to get your property seen by 1000’s of buyers with very little effort on your part.
Working with a Real Estate Investor
Would you like to get your home sold fast, without doing any repairs?
- Property Condition
If your home is not in top condition it is often better to work with a real estate investor, like Triangle House Buyer, rather than a realtor. Realtors make their money when the house sells so if your home needs work and you either can’t afford it or don’t want to have the hassle of it, many realtors will not want to work with you. Realtors want “pretty” homes that will sell fast so they can collect their commission check and move on to the next property. Real estate investors, are looking for properties that maybe need some work so they can add value to the transaction.
Most real estate investors, including Triangle House Buyer, purchase their properties with Cash, and don’t have to rely on traditional funding methods. A very disappointing thing can happen in a regular sale, with the deal falling through at the last minute by a bank denying funding, an appraisal coming in low, or costly inspection repairs that pop up. With a real estate investor paying cash they do not have to get an appraisal, don’t expect your to do any repairs, and don’t have to rely on a bank for the funding of the deal.
