Selling To Us Versus Listing With A Local Agent

Even in a sellers market, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will help you reach your goals with the sale of your house. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket.

Why Does Selling To Us Maximize the Value of Your Home?


Our goal is to help you get out from under the property that you don’t want, while still paying a fast, fair, and honest price.


We can make a very quick assessment of your situation and offer our help immediately, unlike listing with an agent where you have to wait weeks to see if the buyer will even qualify for the financing.


We can get cash in your hand in less than a week!


We don’t care how many repairs are needed or how dirty your house is, because we buy AS-IS.


After factoring in the cleaning, presentation, inspections, appraisals, showings, haggling, months on the market, closing fees and expensive commissions, it may not be worth it in the end.


The traditional route often comes with hassles, commissions, fees and holding costs. We eliminate all of this for you!

*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 We Buy Houses La Plata we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
