Hiring A Real Estate Agent vs. A Direct Sale

As local real estate professionals, our goal is to help homeowners find the solution that is right for them. For some houses a listing makes sense.

How Will You Best Reach Your Real Estate Goals?

There are benefits to both ways of selling. For new homes, that don’t require any repairs, a listing can be good as long as the seller has the time to wait and the cash up front to facilitate some of the costs. For older properties or for people who want a fast and direct sale, a direct sale can be the better way to go.

With a direct sale to NWC Investments, you may not get the full retail value for your property, but you will also not have to deal with any of the costs that come along with a listing. A few of the excellent, and often overlooked benefits of a direct sale include…

You Won’t Have To Pay Any Closing Costs

When you get an offer from us, that is exactly what you will walk away with. You’ll never have to worry about paying expensive closing costs or not knowing what you will really receive for your property. By selling directly to NWC Investments, you won’t have to worry about your share of the closing fees.

No Cleaning, Showing, Or Repairing

With a traditional listing, you’ll have to keep the house clean for showing after showing. Many people will even stage their homes to appeal to more buyers. This can be a lot of work, especially if there is a family living in the home. Repairs will need to be made ahead of time, with more to likely follow after the inspection period. When you sell your Spokane area house directly to NWC Investments, you won’t have to clean the house or leave when someone wants to see it. There are no showings, marketing costs, or repairs to deal with at any time!

Close In Days Not Months

A fast closing will save you money. People don’t always realize how much they are spending each month to own a home. Holding costs add up quickly. If you have a house you need to sell right away, paying these costs while your home is on the MLS can be excruciating. Homeowners insurance, property taxes, utility bills, landscaping, maintenance costs, and possibly a mortgage payment can add up to thousands of dollars down the drain while your property is listed. As any good investor will tell you, the faster you are able to sell a property, the higher your profits will be.

*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 NWC Investments we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
