Selling with Real Estate Agent vs Investor in Houston

Even in a sellers market like Texas, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local Houston agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. If you don’t know the difference, here is a good way to identify a real estate agent vs an investor in Houston. Now, Let’s dive into the details below to compare your options.

Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You Get There…

When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits of selling to an investor over a traditional buyer that a real estate agent looks for.

Yes, here at Sunrise House Buyers TX we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we also offer other benefits that going the traditional house sale route can’t offer. It really is simple and we will explain more below on  the frequently asked question, “How do I sell house without an agent in Houston?

Like…

From offer to close and cash in your hand in as little as 7 days

You can get rid of the headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, you get the drill. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close… you have to figure in all of the costs of holding that property during the time you have that property listed and are waiting for the property to close.

Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer

We don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer? great! we love projects)... we’d like to make an offer on your house. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket.

Don’t worry about paying those pesky closing fees (we’ve got you covered)

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in Texas, we make it easy for you. We pay for all of the closing costs. What we offer you is what you get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property). Pretty refreshing eh?

So when you add up the time you could save by working with Sunrise House Buyers TX, the no-hassle experience, and the money you’ll save on commissions, fees, and holding costs while you wait to sell the traditional route… for many area home owners selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option.

*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. Similar, 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 Sunrise House Buyers TX we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
