Selling To Direct Buyer For Your House vs. Listing With A Local CA Agent
If you own a house and you’re thinking of selling, you’re probably weighing your options and trying to decide the best course of action to proceed. Most sellers make the default choice of selling through a local real estate agent… but many sellers are learning that there are other options… options that might be more suitable to your goals and timeline.
Even in a sellers market like CA, it’s smart to look at your options and see which of the two choices below will work best for your situation. There isn’t a right choice… but there is a right choice for you.
View the chart below and keep the bigger picture in mind. While many sellers are gambling that they’ll get a higher selling price through an agent, few actually count the cost and time required. The most common choice does not always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. Dive into the details below to compare your options.

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 CA house offers.
Sellers have a choice:
You can gamble that an agent will find a buyer willing to pay a higher selling price for your house. But at the same time, you’ll be paying to fix-up and clean-up your house, you’ll be waiting months while strangers walk through your house (and paying utility bills the whole time), and you’ll pay thousands in commissions if the agent can find a buyer.
At Direct Buyer For Your House, we work with sellers to eliminate all the waiting, never-ending expenses, and headaches. Instead of paying all that money out of pocket, savvy sellers realize that they can sell their house at a slight discount and sell faster.
Working with an agent could take months and could cost you hundreds of dollars (or even thousands of dollars) in bills and property taxes that you’ll pay out-of-pocket.
Or, you can skip those payments and close as fast as you want… as quickly as 7-10 days or at a date of your choosing.
You can get rid of the headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, and more.
No Repairs (Or Even Clean-Up)
We don’t care how dirty your house is 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.
- You don’t have to spend out-of-pocket money to fix-up your house
- You don’t have to clean up your house, rent a dumpster, or scrub the walls
- You don’t have to worry about that old furniture and find someone to cart it away
- You don’t have to worry about the smelly old run or the old paint cans in the basement
- You don’t have to deal with contractors or a cleaning company
- You don’t have to rent a steam-cleaner
… we don’t care what kind of shape the house is in, you can just walk away from it and from all the hassle.

*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. Similar, 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.
Here at Direct Buyer For Your House we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
