Compare Selling To Austin House Buyer vs. Listing With A Local Agent

At Austin House Buyer, we believe it’s wise to compare your options and see what will best help you reach your goals with the sale of your house. Sometimes, listing with a Realtor on the MLS is a good idea because more people will see your property for sale, and you could get a top-dollar offer.

However, there are several situations in which selling directly to a cash homebuyer may be preferable:

  • When time is of the essence, and waiting for a traditional transaction to close isn’t feasible.
  • When the property has significant physical defects that are likely to turn off most traditional buyers.
  • When the property is inhabited by challenging tenants who would make showing the home difficult.

Listing with a local Austin agent doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or having less headache.

*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. Similarly, 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 Austin House Buyer, we don’t use bank financing, so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
