We pride ourselves in being the most transparent, trustworthy, ACTUAL cash buyers in the Great Seattle area. Compare Selling House To An Investor vs. Listing With Agent. See how we are different from the majority of the companies you may come across on the internet, in your mailbox, or signs on the street.
|Other Cash Offer companies|
|We come to see the house and provide the highest and best offer||Try to give a high offer sight-unseen at first, then renegotiate the price down later on using contingencies|
|We are the end buyers||Usually wholesalers, or middle-men that “assign” your contract to a 3rd party for a fee. If no 3rd party wants to buy the contract, they will cancel the contract|
|No inspections or feasibility periods*||Will use inspections or feasibility periods to schedule a “showing” for 3rd parties. Usually called “partners” or “contractors”.|
|We deposit Earnest Money within 2 days of signing our contract with you. Many times we have even RELEASED the Earnest Money early for Sellers to the user prior to closing||Usually don’t deposit Earnest Money until AFTER the Inspection or feasibility period.|
|Our Earnest Money deposit is usually at least $10,000.00. We want to show our commitment to the purchase right away||Very often LESS than $1000.|
|We use a standard NWMLS contract, which is used in the majority of Real Estate transactions throughout our area and has been reviewed by Attorneys.||Uses custom contracts drafted by their own Lawyers, which may favor the buyer in many instances, and have hidden “outs” that rid of responsibilities for the buyer in case the sale falls through|
*In some cases, if major structural issues are present, we may request an expert to come to examine the issue for a second opinion. We do this in order to be able to offer you a higher price in case the issue is not as serious as it seems. We may also ask to inspect a septic system if it hasn’t been maintained or active in a long period of time
Even in a seller’s market like WA, 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 Seattle agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. Dive into the details below to compare your options.
|Selling to||Listing On The Market|
|We buy As-Is, no repairs or cleaning needed||You will need to schedule contractors and make repairs to get the housing market-ready|
|Cash Purchase||The buyer will finance through a bank/lender. If after 1-2 months of being in escrow, the buyer can’t get financing, you are back at square one.|
|Close as little as 5 days||Close in approximately 1 – 2 months AFTER you find a buyer|
|No formal inspections or appraisals||Third-party inspections and appraisals could affect sale price negatively and trigger rounds of negotiations. Causing sale to fall through|
|No commissions||Generally, 6% will deduct from the sale price for commissions.|
|Personal service – We can help with situations and work with your timeline||No flexibility. Your property has to meet a bank’s guidelines and Buyer’s timeline.|
Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You Get There…
When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your WA house offers.
Yes, here at Good As Sold Home Buyers we won’t always be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we also offer other benefits that the traditional house sale route can’t offer.
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.
So when you add up the time you could save by working with Good As Sold Home Buyers, 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 homeowners selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option.
