If you’re considering selling your Pittsburgh house and haven’t considered selling it directly to a buyer, you may want to give it some thought. There are many benefits to selling your Pittsburgh house directly to a buyer – particularly a buyer who has cash and is experienced in closing quickly. In today’s post, we’ll discuss the many ways a direct sale can benefit you!
1. Save Money on Repairs
Selling your Pittsburgh house directly to a company like McIntosh Management, LP means you won’t have to spend a single dollar making repairs to the house. When you list your property with an agent, it often takes a good amount of time and money preparing the house for the market. You can avoid these costs by selling your Pittsburgh house to us as-is!
2. No Commissions or Agent Fees
In addition to saving money by not have to make repairs, you will also save a fortune at the closing table. When you sell directly to a buyer without an agent, you aren’t responsible for the commissions they charge (typically up to 6% of the sales price)! On a $100,000 property, that means you could save up to $6,000 just by selling your house directly to a cash buyer.
3. End Financial Obligation
If you’ve found yourself struggling to keep up with your home’s expenses because of a big maintenance issue or a tenant moving out, selling directly to a buyer is the best way to end your financial obligation quickly. By selling directly, you will likely be able to sell your property within a few weeks as opposed to the 60 days it typically takes when working with an agent and finding a traditional buyer. This means you are no longer responsible for the property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, utility bills or other monthly maintenance costs. Every day you still own the house costs you money, so the sooner you are able to sell it the better!
4. Clear Path to Closing
When you list your house with an agent, you are essentially marketing it to potential buyers and hoping one of them will agree to pay the price you want. There are no guarantees that this will happen though. On top of that, it may take weeks or months to find this buyer. This can cause you to reconsider whether you want to sell the house, and delay important decisions such as what you will do with the money when you sell it. When you sell to us, you will pick the closing date and we will give you a price that is guaranteed not to change due to inspections or other issues. This will give you peace of mind and allow you to plan ahead for your future without the house.
5. You Pick the Closing Date
How would you like to be in control of the date, time, and location of the place where you sign the papers to sell your house? When you work with us, we make that happen. We can come to your house, place of business, or anywhere else that’s convenient for you to sign the paperwork. You can also tell us what day is best for you, and we’ll be happy to accommodate. If you need the cash from the sale quickly, we can close in a couple of weeks. If you need to wait in order to move things out, we can wait too! You’ll find that we are very flexible to work with.
6. You Don’t Have to Worry About the Sale Falling Through
We are cash buyers who do not need the help of a bank to buy your house. This means the sale will not fall through due to a bank not being willing to provide a mortgage on the property. This can sometimes happen when you work with an agent and list the property on the market. Sometimes buyers seem qualified to purchase a house, but then the bank ultimately will not lend to them. This means you have to put your house back on the market, delaying the sale. This can look suspicious to many buyers, so it often impacts your sales price as well. Working with a cash buyer like McIntosh Management, LP can provide you the confidence of knowing that the sale will go through every time!
