Listing vs. Selling
Everyone has a unique reason for why they want to sell their home; Do you need to sell quickly due to a job transfer? Are you tired of tenant headaches? Did a difficult situation happen within your family that forced a move? Maybe you’re tired of cleaning a large home and want to downsize? Or maybe you don’t want to keep up with the necessary repairs that come with homeownership? Whatever the reason you’ll want to fully understand your options before making a decision.
Check out the main differences between listing with a local Appleton, Green Bay, Oshkosh, or Fox Valley agent and selling to buyers that want to buy your home outright, like us:
Showings & Length of Time on Market
When you list your home with a realtor you’ll need to keep the house clean and deal with showings. The average is around 20 showings before getting an accepted offer. We’ll make an offer on your home in one day. The average length of time on the market is around three months. You’ll sign a six month contract and there’s no guarantee you’ll actually sell it. We’ll make you an instant cash offer.
Inspection & Financing Contingencies
After you get an accepted offer there could be financing contingencies and you’ll most likely encounter needed repairs that you’ll have to pay for after the inspection. 15% of sales fall through due to financing and inspections. We’re the ones making making the cash offer and paying for the repairs.
Closing Date, Commissions, Fees, & Closing Costs
After financing and inspection, you’ll need to wait 30-60 days before closing and collecting your check. We can close in seven days after the accepted offer. You’ll have to pay commissions to the realtor with an average of 6% taken out of your profits as well as closing costs to the title company. We cover all closing costs and there are no fees or commissions when working with us.

*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.
