With the other options that are now available, Is listing your house for sale the best way to go? This post will look at comparing selling your house to a direct home buyer versus listing your house on the MLS.
If you want to just sell your Bonaire Georgia house fast to a direct home buyer, You can always contact us. But I digress…
Listing Your house:
Although selling your house in Bonaire Georgia is much faster than most states, even if the buyer is using conventional financing, listing a house for sale will take a minimum of two months.
If you have a good agent and finds you a buyer the first day it is listed AND you agree with the offer, you still lots to wait for. They will have to schedule an inspection. The inspection has to go to the underwriter for approval. If (big if) the inspector finds nothing wrong (which never happens), the bank will finish approving the loan for your buyer.
Now the closing attorney can do the title work and schedule your closing. If your house sells fast, then chances are, other houses are selling fast also. This means the attorney is going to be busy! It may take a while to get a closing date.
That is a simple example and it still took two months to shake hands give away your house keys.
A Direct Sale: Georgia also has just as many Direct home buyers.
IBuyers (or Instant Buyer) are local home buyers that come and buy your house directly from you. These companies usually can buy your house in 10 days or less, depending on the situation. If you are looking to get your Bonaire Georgia house sold fast, this is the way to go.
Listing Your house:
Listing with an agent does not cost anything up front, but there are cost that can sneak up on you. Bonaire Ga, agents get 6% commission for listing a house and 5% if the house is bigger.
Most agents will pay for initial marketing and listing on the MLS, but Premium listings can cost extra. If you decide to stage the property, that will cost extra. Also, if your house is not in the best condition, the agent will ask that you do some repairs to make the house look it’s best.
Selling you house directly:
With a direct sale to Real Estate Problem Solver, this is an as-is sale. Direct home buyers buy houses in Bonaire as they sit. No clean up, no repairs. Simple.
Listing your house:

What if you get talked into changing the carpet? Now you have nice carpet and old wall paint. What if you decide to update the kitchen and now the bathrooms don’t match? Repairs can get out of hand quick.
