Selling Your Home - A Comparison

Are you looking for the best way to sell your home? These days, there are more options than the simple real estate contract we’ve all come to know. Let's compare Real Estate Relief versus traditional agent listings.

Real Estate Relief also offers options you may not be aware exist, nor that traditional listing agents can offer.


 Points Traditional Agent Selling To An Investor With Real Estate Relief
Commissions / Fees: An average of 6% is paid by the seller None Standard if we list the property; none if buying it.
Who Pays Closing Costs? Approximately 2% paid by seller Investor You pay standard closing if you list with us. No closing cost if you sell to us directly.
Inspection & Financing Contingency*: Yes, because sometimes sales fall through None Much lower risk of the final sale falling through
Appraisal Needed: Yes, the sale is subject to appraisal None Subject to appraisal if we list, none if we buy
Average Days Until Sold: 91 +/- Can close in 7 days Standard time on the market; Immediate cash offer
Number of Showings: Varies Varies Just one if you sell to us
Closing Date: 30-60+/- days after accepting offer You usually choose You usually choose
Who Pays For Repairs? Negotiated during inspection Investor We do if you sell to us for cash

*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. Similarly, 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.

With Real Estate Relief, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.

Work the numbers, you'll start to see the real benefits

If you aren’t sure about the benefits of using a Real Estate Relief as your home buyer, all it takes is comparing the numbers. When we say "compare the numbers", we mean more than your sale price. Look at closing costs, fees, and commissions, and you will see that it pays to compare Real Estate Relief versus local agent listings.

If your house is in need of repair, those costs become ours to worry about if you sell directly to Real Estate Relief. We typically handle closing costs as well. Not to mention we don’t charge you a commission if you sell your house to us!

From a fast and fair offer, to close, and cash in your hand in as little as seven days

When we say you can sell your home fast, we mean it. With Real Estate Relief’s cash offer program, you can have cash in hand in as little as seven days from the day you provide us with information on your property. Typically, we return a fair quote fast. Our cash offer program is the fastest way to get your cash.

However, our cash offer program isn’t all we offer. At Real Estate Relief, we have the best of both worlds. We are not only able to offer to buy your property for cash with our cash offer program. We are also able to help you list your home and choose a more traditional listing experience.

Stop worrying about fixing up or cleaning your home again and again for buyer after buyer

How many times have you cleaned your home and baked a fresh batch of cookies to make your home more appealing for potential buyers? How many times did those strategies work? If traditional real estate strategies work for you, great! However, if you’re ready for a change of real estate ways, sell directly to Real Estate Relief and forget all the fees, cleaning, and repairs.

Even if your home is in need of repair, we can make a fair, fast cash offer. Leave the repairs to us. Once we purchase the house, we take care of the repairs and any other expenses associated with getting the home ready to sell to another homeowner or rent to someone.

Stop worrying about paying those pesky closing fees

Closing costs: the necessary fee that many people forget about until the day they are expected to pay the fees. If you accept our cash offer, you won’t have to worry about closing costs. We will take care of them.

When you compare Real Estate Relief versus traditional agent listings, closing costs are one of many fees you might be stuck with a portion or all of to pay. When you sell directly to us, we handle the fees. We work with a reputable local title agent to close as quickly as possible.
