Selling to an Investor vs. Real Estate Agent

Fast cash to sell from an Investor.

There’s never been a better time to sell your house in Hayward, CA.  The market is trending in favor of sellers and you don’t want to be left behind!  Check out these market trends:

  • The average sale price of $670,000 is up 2.9% from this time last year
  • Houses are going for 2.7% OVER list price on average
  • Average days on market is a paltry 12 days!
  • Most homes will receive multiple offers, which means you can drive up the price based on the competition
  • Some homes are even selling for 7% or more in less than 7 days!

So, now that you know it’s the right time to sell, how should you go about it?  Most people think of selling through a traditional real estate agent as the most advisable route to take.  But before you dive into that approach, consider other ways you can sell your home even more effectively.  One of the ways to do that is to target real estate investors. 

Let’s take a look at some of the major differences in these two approaches:

The biggest and most obvious difference is the cost.  On average, sellers will pay a 6% commission fee to agents – 3% for each side of the transaction (listing and buying agent).  On a $500,000 home sale, that’s a whopping $30,000!  By contrast, when you sell to an investor, you pay them $0 commission.  Simple.

Speaking of costs and fees, when you go to closing, you’ll typically have to shoulder around 2% worth of fees to execute the transaction, accounting for the title company, recording of paperwork, etc.  When you sell to an investor, like us, we handle all closing costs and none of the fees are your responsibility.

One of the biggest pitfalls in a traditional sale deals with the inspection.  Homebuyers will be instructed by their agent to order a home inspection, after which they’ll pore over the report and likely come back with a bunch of repairs and fixes for which they want a credit to the final sale price.  Even worse, sometimes the inspection reveals issues that cause a buyer to walk away, and your sale falls through.  MrFastCashBuyer never orders an inspection – we buy your house as-is!  We understand that investments often require rehab and we’ve already built that into our approach.

Similarly, traditional sales almost always involve an appraisal of the house, as buyers look to gain an edge and drive down your list price.  Investors don’t order appraisals – we know time is of the essence and we move quickly.

When you list with traditional agents on the MLS, your house is going to be on the market for some amount of time, no matter how hot that market is.  Investors simply move faster than even the fastest homebuyer, because we look at the property differently.  We know we need to move quickly because there may be another investor right behind us looking at the same property.  Take showings for example – we just need to see it once, that’s it.  When you sell through an agent, you could end up with scores of house showings, constantly interrupting you and your family’s routine.  Not fun!

Lastly, when you go through an investor like MrFastCashBuyer, you get to choose the closing date.  You’re not driven by the multiple parties involved, like the buyer, their agent, the title company, and so on.  It’s easy and convenient FOR YOU.
