Selling Directly To 978 Cash Buyers vs. Listing With A Local Agent

Even in a seller’s market, it’s smart to look at your options to see how you can best reach your goals with the sale of your Massachusetts house. While you may be able to get a higher sales price listing with a local agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. Dive into the details below to compare your selling options.

Who Pays For Repairs?Negotiated during the inspection periodWe pay for all repairs.
*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. Similarly, 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 978 Cash Buyers, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.

Looking to quickly sell your property in Boston? Avoid the hassle of making additional utility, tax, insurance, and mortgage payments while you wait for your property to sell on the market.

Situations like foreclosure, probate, liens, divorce, tenant issues, a job relocation, or a fast-deteriorating property may make a speedy transaction of utmost importance to you.

Don’t worry about fixing anything or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer.

When you sell a house in need of repairs with a realtor on market, there is often the expectation that the seller handles the repairs and gets the property in tip-top shape before listing. That’s time and money that you may not have or want to spend. And if you sell a property in need of heavy repairs on market, the banks that your buyers are using to finance the purchase often will not lend on such a beat-up property.

Is your property a 60s or 70s ranch that hasn’t been updated since it was built? Is it an old New England house from the 1800s with knob-and-tube wiring and black mold? We don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer? great! we love projects). We want to make an offer on your house today. Let us save you time and put more money in your pocket.

Relief from burdensome situations

We work with many folks who are in the midst of stressful situations with their properties, such as foreclosure, liens, divorce, probate, tenant issues, and properties in need of costly repairs – all situations where an on-market transaction may not be as straight-forward as hoped. We pride ourselves on not only providing fair cash offers to folks in these circumstances, but helping to problem-solve, advising on the steps involved in selling during these situations, and making sure you understand all of your options. Your situation is always unique, but chances are that we’ve worked with home sellers who have been in similar circumstances to you – we can draw on those prior experiences and lend our expertise to help you reach your goals with your property.

No pesky closing fees. We’ve got you covered!

When you list your home with a realtor in Massachusetts, the seller is responsible for paying both the buyer realtor’s and seller realtor’s commissions out of the sale price of the home. Sellers are also most often responsible for paying closing costs on the transaction when selling on-market.

As a full-service professional home buyer in Massachusetts, we aim to simplify the process for you. Our commitment includes covering all closing costs, and we’re not realtors, so realtor commissions are out of the equation as well. What we offer is what you receive, excluding any existing mortgage payoff or property encumbrances. Quite a breath of fresh air, isn’t it?

Consider the time saved through partnering with 978 Cash Buyers, the seamless transaction, and the savings on commissions, fees, and holding costs compared to the traditional selling route. It’s evident why many homeowners in Boston find selling to a professional home buyer to be the optimal choice.
