Selling Directly To A Phoenix Cash Buyer VS. Listing It With A Real Estate Agent

There’s no secret that Arizona is going through a sellers-market. But even in a hot market, it’s a good idea to look at all your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house.

Truth be told, listing it will give you highest price for your house (most of the time but not always). But for some homeowners out there it doesn’t always come down to having more money in your pocket. Things like a convenient and fast sale can be more important.

Below, we compare the details between selling it directly to “We Buy Houses In Arizona” and listing with an agent.

Selling W/ a Real Estate Agent SOLD To “We Buy Houses In Arizona“
Commissions / Fees: 6% on average is paid by you, the seller NONE
Who Pays Closing Costs?: 2% on average is paid by you, the seller NONE – We pay all costs
Inspection & Financing Contingency*: Yes, up to 15% of sales fall through NONE
Appraisal Needed: Yes, sale is often subject to appraisal NONE – We make non-contingent cash offers
Average Days Until Sold: +/- 91 Days IMMEDIATE CASH OFFER
Number of Showings: It depends but can be many 1 (Just Us)
Closing Date: 30-60 +/- days after accepting buyers offer The Date Of YOUR CHOICE
Who Pays For Repairs?: Negotiated During Inspection Period NONE – We 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 We Buy Houses In Arizona, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal. We close every deal we make an offer on. 
Can I Save Money?

Yes and no.

You can save upfront costs like repairs, cleanup, time spent on the market while paying the bills.

But, here at “We Buy Houses In Arizona” we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house. If you’re only looking to save on commission fees while still getting full retail value, your best bet is to use a real estate agent.

But if you need a:

  • fast close… because you can’t afford the payments or facing a foreclosure
  • reliable sale… because you don’t want to deal with buyers dropping out of closing
  • hassle-free sale… because you’re tired of dealing with a stressful divorce, bad tenants, or an inherited house
  • cost-free sale… because you can’t afford repairs or commission fees (we don’t charge any fees)
  • guaranteed sale… because you need your frustrating situation done today

… then you can consider your house sold on the day you call us at (602) 900-9327!
