Advantages of Working With A Professional Home Buying Company When You Sell A House For Cash In Poughkeepsie, New York and surrounding areas

There are three options to sell your house:

You can sell the house yourself, list it with an agent, or sell it to a reputable professional home buyer like Sell Now Home Buyers.

Yes, you can save money on Realtor commissions if you sell your house yourself. And yes- you can even sell it at a higher price if you sell it yourself, instead of to Sell Now Home Buyers.

What? Are we crazy for telling you that?

Not at all! we are not out to deceive anyone. We want you to have all the information you can get, so your decision is the right one for you- even if that means we don’t get your business.

But before you decide to sell your house yourself, or list with an agent, take a moment to read on and learn more about those options.

Selling your house yourself means you are responsible for being present and allowing access for agents and buyers to walk through your home. You will be hounded by agents who want to get your listing. (That isn’t a slur about Realtors- Dave’s wife is an agent, too! It’s their job to get your listing!)

As the Seller of your own home, you will be responsible for negotiating with agents and buyers, addressing expensive home repairs, making sure all permits and violations are taken care of, and navigating the attorney-driven process of real estate sales in New York.

This means, on average, it can take three months and sometimes even longer to get your check from the day you accept an offer – and that is if everything goes smoothly. You will have to empty everything out of the house and off the property, unless otherwise negotiated. All the furniture, garbage, knick knacks, personal items, any debris outside… everything must be cleaned out and removed.

If the buyer you choose to work with loses their mortgage, if they make a ton of expensive demands for repairs, if they have to sell their home first and something goes wrong with that sale… well.. tick tock goes that clock and the days add on.

If you sell your house yourself, it is highly likely you will still be working with a Realtor- just not one representing you. It is common practice in New York for private home owners to offer a commission to Buyer’s agents, as most Buyers will be working with an agent. Standard commission for one agent is 2% or sometimes 3%. So even though you are doing so much work yourself, you still pay, for example, $6,000.00 on a 2% commission to an agent if you sell your home for $300,000.

You can always note you are working with “Principals only” if you pop your listing online yourself, but buckle up because you will receive a lot of calls from agents, anyway. And many Buyers prefer to work with an agent so they have someone offering them informed advice and guidance. After all- they are not paying the agent’s commission- that comes out of your check at the closing table!

Your next option of working with a Realtor means a lot of the above still applies- the Buyer’s ability to get a mortgage, all the permits that have to be closed out and violations addressed, expensive repairs, cleaning your house out entirely- it must be broom swept clean! Your home has to be available for agents to bring their buyers through to check it out. They will open closets and drawers, pick up rugs, climb into your attic – every inch is fair game to a Buyer inspecting your home. Ditto for the home inspector who will go much deeper, spending hours at your home testing every system, outlet, faucet, and so on. Any defects are noted and often presented to you with a request or demand to repair. The same timeline applies, too. And then there is the commission – expect to pay out either a 4% total commission, to be split between your agent and the Buyer’s agent. This means you pay either $12,000 or $18,000 to agents if you sell your home for $300,000.

So that on a $300,000 house, you are down to either $288,000 or $282,000 – after what could be thousands of dollars in repairs, and addressing any violations or outstanding permits on the property. Add on the expense of emptying everything out- which can be especially stressful in an inherited house- and the months spent with your house on the market, your privacy gone, and the haggling with buyers and agents – we have seen so many people completely stressed out and overwhelmed by this process, not matter how good their agent is.

If you feel up to all of that – Good Luck! We wish you well. And give us a call at 845-551-9484, as we work closely with our own Realtor who will be happy to meet with you.
