7 Ways A Direct Home Sale Will Save You Money in Wilmington

7 Ways A Direct Home Sale Will Save You Money

There is more way to sell your house in Wilmington. A direct home sale will save you time and money as compared to a traditional listing with an agent. Learn more about how easy the process can be in our latest post!

#1 – No Commissions

With a direct sale to Homebuyers of NC, you will avoid all of the costs you might incur with an agent. You will not have to worry about paying expensive agent commisions or miscellaneous fees. Some agents will charge administrative fees, so make sure you know exactly what your agent costs will be if you decide to sign a listing agreement.

#2 – No Repairs

Most professional home buyers and investors will buy your house as-is. This will save you money you would normally be paying up front to get the house ready for the MLS. In addition, buyers will try to negotiate additional repairs after the home inspection has been completed.

#3 – No Clean Up Required

When we say we buy as-is, we mean it. Moving can be stressful enough. You don’t have to spend your time cleaning either now, or for the next few months while it’s listed. Getting a house ready for the market typically requires a bit more than your standard clean-up. When listing, you will need to get it photo ready. And for property showings, your agent is likely to recommend a professional deep cleaning of the house, carpets, etc. You should also consider the exterior of the house. Landscaping and curb appeal should be kept up throughout the entire listing process.

#4 – No Closing Costs

Not all homebuyers will pay the closing costs, however, at Homebuyers of NC, we pay them in their entirety. You will not have to pay for title insurance, transfer fees, deed recording fees, notarization fees or anything else that would come with a standard closing. We want to make the selling process simple for you so that you can move on with your life.

#5 – No Marketing Costs

When you list your house, there are marketing fees that will need to be covered. Some agents include this in their service. However, many others will hit you up for photography fees, listing fees and costs to advertise the house on certain real estate websites. Sometimes you will even find yourself covering the costs or signage and items for an open house. Before signing a contract with an agent, make sure you understand what’s included.

#6 – No Storage or Staging Fees

Most agents will recommend you remove all clutter and personal belongings from the home. This includes paperwork, personal photos, and clutter of any sort. Think about real estate listings you have seen. Often times the listing showing cluttered photos are overlooked. We tend to keep scrolling until we see homes that look catalog worthy. Sometimes, this can be beneficial as you will get a head start on packing. However, it can also make you feel like you are living in a hotel and not your own home. In addition, you need a place to put all your stuff. You might find yourself with the additional cost of renting a storage unit until your home is sold and you have moved on to something else.

#7 – End Your Monthly Bills

You will immediately be free of the monthly bills, property tax obligation, homeowners insurance, general maintenance costs and more. Owning a house can be expensive, especially if it is an older, run-down property. When you sell to Homebuyers of NC, we are able to close in days, not months. This alone can potentially save you thousands!
