What you may not know, is that there are multiple ways to sell a Salt Lake City house. Many people will seek help from an agent, there are other, more cost-effective ways to sell your house. For example, you could choose to carry the note yourself or sell the property directly, without the help of an agent, which is what we will cover in our latest post!
As we said above, there are many ways to sell. For some properties, a listing makes the most sense, whereas, for other, a direct sale is the smarter choice. Which will it be for you! Warning: don’t sign any listing agreements or agree to a sale until you know what a direct sale can do for your situation!
The Commission Factor
When you choose a direct sale to a company such as YourPriceMyTerms.com, you won’t need to worry about paying dishing out 6% of the sale price in commissions. Did you know that by choosing a direct sale you will be saving thousands of dollars. In addition, there aren’t any agent fees, marketing costs, listing fees or photographers to pay. Working with a direct buyer, the property is typically sold as-is, so keep the money for advertising in your wallet.
No Clean-Up Or Repairs
Listing your Salt Lake City house will require you to make repairs to the home to get it ready for the MLS. Even the tiniest damages can lower your buyer’s idea of value for the home. Doing the repairs and touch-ups or paint to the house can add up quickly as far as the amount of money is concerned. Don’t forget to factor in the cost to clean up, keep it clean, store personal items and clutter as well as purchase items if you need to do some staging. Most of the time these costs can add more money in your pocket and worth it in the long run, they should be thought about before listing your home.
As you work with a company like ours to sell your house directly, the closing date is always up to you. We purchase properties almost immediately or can close on the date of your choice, so you won’t have to spend time waiting around for a buyer to come along. One more thing to think about, we won’t rush you into any closing unless you are completely satisfied. After talking with a lot of people over the years, we know that selling and planning your move can be a stressful time, hence why we aim to keep the process as simple as possible. If you should choose to accept an offer from YourPriceMyTerms.com, you will then decide on the date that best works for you. You won’t have to worry about the sale falling through as with a traditional sale using bank financing. A direct buyer will have the funds available to pay you immediately!
A Fast Sale Will Save You Money
To be honest with you, the longer you have the house, the more it is going to cost you. Investors know this, that is why the goal is always to flip a house quickly! By selling your property to us right away, you are going to be saving yourself months of wasted time and extra maintenance expenses. The odds are against you, there is a good chance you will be paying more for your house than you even realize. Remember there will be monthly utilities, homeowners insurance, property taxes that you are responsible for up until the day of closing as well as routine maintenance costs. One thing to keep in mind is the things such as pool service, pest control or landscaping, these costs will immediately be over and done with.
A Direct Sale Offers Guarantees, While A Listing With An Agent Does Not
There is a lot of uncertainty when it comes to buying and selling properties. Deals fall through every day. Most lender so banks will take longer than expected to fund a loan. When you list, you are in essence living in limbo until the closing papers have been signed. Most agents will list your house for any price you want, even if it has been over priced in order to get you to sign a listing agreement. There is NO guarantee that you will get the price you ask for when you list your Salt Lake City house! With a direct sale, you will know both date and amount of cash you will walk away with. This will allow you to plan ahead without having to deal with the unknown!
