Selling to an Investor vs a Traditional Realtor.
Selling in a market like today’s can sometimes be frustrating. With so many other houses on the market it gives buyers out there more choices… and often times sellers can wait 3, 6, 12+ months to sell their house for a price they feel is fair. This brief guide will walk you through the decision process to help you decide what’s best for you. Do you go the traditional route and work with a real estate agent, sell it yourself (For Sale By Owner), or work with a real estate investment company?
The most popular way to sell a house today is by working with a real estate agent.
The general process of working with an agent is…
- You contact an agent and they visit with you about your house to determine what they feel it may sell for.
- You sign a listing agreement with the agent (normally 6 months) where they exclusively represent and sell your property.
- Agent lists property on the MLS, markets it, and takes buyers through your house for showings (a house should show well to sell well).
- If a property sells, the agent takes care of the paperwork and negotiation with the buyer… and the agent collects their fee… which is usually 3% for them and 3% to the agent that brought the buyer (so up to 6% of the total purchase price of the house).
Agents know the market and have direct access to the MLS which is the main way houses are listed when selling the traditional route.
Cost: Selling agent fees are usually about 3% of the total purchase price.
The “buyers” agent usually earns 3% as well (totaling 6% in agent fees). As an example, if your house sells for $200,000… you could expect approx. $12,000 of that to be paid to the agents at closing.
Timeline: From 3 – 12 months (with an average of 6 months in many markets)
Pros: Agents know the market well, have access to the MLS to list your house to expose it to a broad range of retail buyers, they’ll take care of the marketing, showing the property, and putting together the closing documents.
Cons: It can be expensive. An agent’s commission is paid out of the proceeds of the sale at closing. Most agents tend to do “traditional” marketing which often takes 3-12 months to sell a house (in most markets the average time on “market” when listed with an agent is 6+ months currently).
This of course means you’re responsible for the costs of the house while it’s trying to sell.
Lastly, with agents… their primary way to get buyers is by focusing on “retail” buyers (people looking to live in the home). This requires showings of the house and there’s always the chance that the buyer who’s offer you accept has their financing fall through, or delay the closing date.
One last “con” is that many retail buyers will ask you as the seller to pay for part of the closing costs… so this is an additional expense in many transactions.
You Should Work With an Agent If…
- You aren’t on a time crunch and can wait 6-12 months.
- You have enough money or room in the transaction to pay the agent fees.
- You want to get FULL market value for your house.
- You’re willing to wait it out until a buyer comes along who is willing to pay full market value.
The general process of selling your house to a real estate investor is…
- You connect with the investor and submit your information about your house and
situation to them.
- Investor will evaluate the house, come up with a value for it, determine if any
repairs are needed, find out what your goals are, and make an offer that fits their
buying criteria and helps you reach your goals.
- You look at the offer and decide if it works for you.
- If it’s a fit, closing happens at a title company and the title company prepares the
documents… the investor buys with all cash so it’s a quick close and you get your
- The house sale is complete.
The process can take from 7-30 days (many times investors can close within 7 days if you need it to). It is the option that many sellers go with when they need to sell their house fast with little hassle.
Cost: The cost to sell your house to a real estate investor is very low. There are no commissions or fees and often times the investor will actually pay for 100% of the closing costs as well.
This immediately eliminates thousands in costs that you would have to pay when working with an agent or selling the FSBO route. The main cost with working with a real estate investor is the fact that an investor can’t pay full retail value for a house. They usually look to buy houses at discounts that allow for them of course to turn a small profit on the deal… just like any other business turns a profit.
But, for many people… selling at a lower price makes sense in return for the elimination of commissions and fee and the much faster timeline to sell your house.
What many people don’t take into consideration are the “carrying” costs when selling a house with an agent or the FSBO route. Carrying costs are all of the costs associated with owning and maintaining the house. The mortgage payment, taxes, insurance,
utilities, HOA fees, etc. These can really add up. If your mortgage payment (including taxes and insurance) is $1,500… and you work with an agent and it takes them 8 months to sell the house at full market value… that means during the 8 months you paid
$12,000 in payments on that house (which we all know most of your mortgage payment is interest going straight to the bank). Plus, you’ll be paying the commissions, etc. So in the end, you could net in your pocket less if it takes a long time to sell your house
with an agent for full retail value… versus selling very quickly to an investor at a discount today.
A similar situation we’re all familiar with is trading in your car to the dealership when you buy a new one.
Most people trade in their car to the dealership to eliminate hassle and headache. We all know the dealership is paying a discounted rate and will turn around and sell your car for a markup and make a profit. But, because of the convenience and speed… it makes sense for you to sell it for less money in return for not having to worry about taking it home, spending money on marketing it, and trying to sell it yourself.
Timeline: The timeline to sell your house when working with a real estate investor can be very quick. Since investors buy with all cash (they don’t use conventional banks which take more time)… they can close very quickly. Many times you can have an offer on your house in less than 48 hours… and can close in less than 7 days from the time you accept it (sometimes it may take a week or two).
Pros: It’s less headache, you can have your house sold this time next week if you wanted to, no fees or commissions, many times the investor will pay all closing costs as well, and the closing happens at a title company just like with an agent… making sure it’s done correctly. In addition, most investors will buy your house “as-is” and won’t require you to repair anything, clean anything up, or even remove everything from the house. They’ll pay for those costs themselves after the sale is closed.
Cons: Cons: Just like with anything, there are drawbacks. The main drawback may be that you are selling at a discount in return for the speed and convenience that a real estate investor is able to offer.
If you’re able to work with an agent and the agent is able to sell your house for full market value within 3 months (and you can wait 3 months)… you may be ahead going that route.
But, if it takes longer than 3 months for the agent to sell it… the “carrying” costs we mentioned earlier start to eat away at any gains you may have working with an agent.
You Should Work With an Agent If…
This strategy is mainly for people who are willing to sacrifice a bit on the sales price in exchange for a fast convenient sale with no hassles. If you need to sell quickly (days or weeks rather than months), investors can close quickly. If you don’t want to hassle with repairs or cleaning up the house, investors actually will take care of that for you. Investors are able to get a good house at a fair price that leaves them room for a profit… and you are able to get out from under the house and the payment and can move on more quickly.

- We can close quickly (in as little as 7 days if you need to)
- We’re buying it AS-IS… so you don’t need to repair anything
- We close at a reputable 3rd party Title Company (you can choose your own if you want)

“I could not be happier with the sale of my long-time rental property to Scott Bower and HBSB Holdings!!!
Scott delivered on his promise of a quick close, cash sale. He and his title company associates were available and attentive. We even had complications with outgoing tenants, but Scott was able to flex and save the deal!
I could have have sold for slightly more on open market, but I would have had the expense of realtor’s commission and property rehab. Scott cut me a check and allowed me to walk away painlessly with a similar net profit.
You can trust Scott, he’s a straight shooter and a man of his word!”
We were very satisfied, the sale was handled great. It was an easy process and nice experience. No complaints!
It was a very nice experience. Scott was very nice to work with.
It was great! It went really smooth! Currently talking about doing a few more sales with him! Looking forward to our future business!
Everything was great. Closed right away. The process was smooth and easy.
The sale of my home went pretty good, working with Scott was good.
These guys get the job Done! Very professional, Thanks again!
The experience was good.. Everything was smooth and everything went well with the transaction of the sale. Scott was really nice and explained everything really well.
Absolutely darling! He’s (Scott) just the best! Great team and very nice people. It was a very nice experience.
Scott was great! Experience was great! It was exactly what I expected. If I sell my other property’s I will use this company again!
