Selling Directly To Cardinal Home Buyers vs. Listing On The MLS With A Local Agent

Even if it’s a hot seller’s market, it is still smart to look at all of your options to see what works best with your goals of the sale of your Raleigh house. While there is a chance you could get a higher sales price listing with an agent, that doesn’t always equal more money in your pocket or the stressless situation you are likely looking for. Take a look below to compare your selling options.

Commissions / Fees:Up to 6%, paid by you, the sellerNone
Who Pays Closing Costs?Typically 2% is paid by you, the sellerWe pay all closing costs.

Date of Closing:30-60+/- days after you accept the initial offerWhenever you choose
Who is Responsible For Repairs?Typically negotiated during the inspection periodWe cover all repairs
*The inspection contingency allows the buyer to do all necessary inspections. Typically during this period, they will use the inspection reports to either renegotiate a lower sales price or require you to make a list of repairs. If you and the buyer can’t come to an agreement, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similarly, a financing contingency allows the buyer to back out of the agreement or renegotiate a lower sales price if their financing falls through or if the home does not appraise at a high enough price.

Here at Cardinal Home Buyers, we don’t use traditional bank financing, so there is no concern about our ability to close on a deal.

Review the numbers and see which scenario best fits your situation…

When you review the numbers and pros / cons of each situation, you can begin to see which option works best for selling your home.

Yes, here at Cardinal Home Buyers we normally can’t offer full retail value, but we can offer other benefits to account for this that listing with a local real estate agent just can’t provide.

For example…

From accepting an offer to closing in as little as 10 days.

You have the ability to get rid of your property fast and not pay one more utility bill, tax payment, insurance payment, mortgage payment, etc. If you sell your house listing with a local agent and wait 90+ days until closing, the additional costs of holding that property for an extra 3 months can quickly add up.

No need to worry about any repairs or cleaning your house for each potential buyer.

We’re not concerned about how dirty your house may be (trust us, we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs might be needed (does it need every repair imaginable? That’s fine. That’s what we’re good at). We want to make an offer on your house today. Let us save you time and the hassle of listing your home and put money in your pocket quicker.
