You find yourself ready to sell and while you don’t want to pay all of the commissions and fees that come along with a traditional real estate agent, you also dread all that is involved with listing the property for sale by the owner. At High Peaks Capital, we’ll take the time to listen to all of your questions about the process and the potential savings involved with a direct sale!
1. No Repairs or Renovations
Appraisals and inspections are necessary parts of the traditional home selling process. This leads many to put thousands of dollars into a home that they’re ready to walk away from. In order to pass inspections, you could potentially be facing overwhelming repair bills for an issue you weren’t aware of previously. Real estate professionals know that many buyers won’t be able to realize the potential you may feel your property possesses because they can’t see past anything that is outdated. These upgrades can be anything between the interior and exterior of the home.
2. Pack & Go
Sell direct and forget about having to clean! Experienced real estate agents understand that most buyers can’t see beyond your clutter or any apparent decorative flaws. Real estate professionals will likely advise that you store your belongings and spend money and time staging the home. This allows the buyer to more easily picture themselves living in the home. You can save all the costs involved in a deep clean home when you sell directly. In many cases, you can just leave behind any items you’d rather not take along to your new residence.
3. Forget Closing Costs
You’ll save money when you sell directly by eliminating most of the normal costs and fees associated with traditional closings. You’ll also forego the fees normally associated with the required reports from appraisals and inspections in most cases. Especially on newer or more recently renovated properties.
4. No Marketing Expenses
Whether you are working with a real estate agent or selling your home on your own, marketing expenses will be passed on to you. Typically, the more you spend, the better your advertising and reach to the public. As a part of the marketing plan, you’ll need to have a picture-perfect home.
5. Monthly Costs Eliminated
The monthly costs of homeownership can add a lot of stress. These costs can run into the thousands, including taxes, mortgage, insurance, utilities, and maintenance. If your home is aging, repair bills are usually depleting your funds on a more regular basis and can be extremely expensive. The financial burden and personal stress can add up quickly. By choosing a direct sale, you could literally save yourself thousands!
