The 3 Ways To Sell Your Home In Harker Heights
For most people, owning a home is the largest purchase of their lives. So it’s not surprising that the process of buying a home or selling a home can be extremely complex.
If you own a home and are thinking about selling to home buyers in Harker Heights, you have a number of selling options available to you. In this blog post, we’ll look at those 3 ways and break them down to help you determine which way is best for you.
Home-Selling Method #1: Sell Through A Real Estate
This is the traditional way to sell your home, so it’s also the most common. In this home-selling method, the homeowner chooses a real estate agent who will list the house.
The agent acts as a “middleman,” showing prospective home buyers through your house until one of those buyers decides to buy. They’ll make an offer, the agent will negotiate on your behalf, and then you’ll close.
The timeline on this selling method can take months (the average is 3-6 months). Sellers who choose this method prefer to gamble on the timeline to do less work (the agent does the work) and with the hopes of selling at the market price. However, sellers who use this method will often need to spend money up-front to repair their house first, and then spend money after the sale on agent fees and commissions.
Home-Selling Method #2: Sell On Your Own
This method of selling has grown up in response to a desire to save money on agent commissions. The process is very similar to the above method of selling but it’s done by the homeowner themselves, and not by an agent.
The homeowner lists their house, shows it to prospective buyers, negotiates with the buyer, and closes the deal.
There are a lot of similarities – the timeline is usually the same and the homeowner will still have to pay up-front for repairs on their house to make it sellable. Sellers who choose this method don’t mind the extra work involved in showing their house; they usually choose this method to save money on commissions.
Home-Selling Method #3: Sell Direct To Home Buyer
This process is very different – it’s also faster, easier, and doesn’t cost the homeowner anything.
Rather than listing and showing the house or negotiating, the homeowner simply sells their house direct to a professional home buyer like us at LJE Property Solutions.
Like we’ve mentioned, when you work with us there are no fees and no commissions… like there are when you list your house with an agent.
