3 Ways To Tell Agents And Investors Apart In Selling Your Texas Home

Thinking about selling your house? You might be approached by different people who all offer to help you sell. But not everyone who offers to help will have the same way process. Some are real estate agents, other are real estate investors. Here are 3 ways to tell agents and investors apart in selling your Texas home.

Ways To Tell Real Estate Agents And Investors Apart:

List Versus Buy

The easiest way to tell agents from investors is to ask what they are going to do with your house – list it or buy it. A real estate agent will list your house on a listing service and they’ll try to find a buyer. They might need to show it to several people in order to find one buyer.

An investor, on the other hand, isn’t going to list your house – the investor is a buyer and they will buy your house from you directly. That’s what we do at LJE Property Solutions – we’re buyers and we buy houses in as-is conditions, even if your house needs repairs .

Timeline To Sell

The next way to tell an agent apart from an investor is to ask about their timeline to buy. An agent won’t know because they have to find the buyer first. In many cases, they might be looking at 3-12 months during which they’ll show the house to multiple potential buyers.

An investor, though, will know exactly how long it will take to buy your house since they’re the ones who will buy it. Here ate LJE Property Solutions, after you send us information about your home, we can make you a no-obligation, fair-cash offer in as little as 24 hours. After that, we can close at a local, reputable title company in as little as 7 days. Compare that to the 30+ days it can take to close when listing your house the traditional way

Commission Versus No Commission

This one is crucial! An agent makes their money when they find a buyer and then you have to pay them a commission on the house (which could be somewhere around 6% of the sale price… or $6,000 on a $100,000 house).

An investor, however, isn’t listing your house so there aren’t any commissions. That’s because an investor will make money by either renting the house to a tenant or fixing up the house and selling it… so they make their money in a different way.

There are other ways to tell an agent or investor apart. The best thing to do is just ask… they’ll tell you!
