Selling Directly To Alberta Property Buyers Vs. Listing With A Local Agent

Are you thinking of selling your home? Even in a seller’s market, it’s smart to look at ALL of your options to see how you can best reach your goals with the sale of your Alberta 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. Let’s dive into the details below to compare different selling options you have at your disposal. 

 Selling with An Alberta AgentSelling To Alberta Property Buyers
Commissions / Fees:Up to 6% or even a bit more depending on your location, paid by you, the sellerNo commissions.
Who Pays Closing Costs?2% on average is paid by you, the sellerWe can pay all closing costs.
Inspection & Financing Contingency*:Yes, sales can fall through. Especially in these uncertain times, unfortunately, we see sales fall through on homes quite close to their closing dates very oftenThere are no financing or inspection contingencies.
Appraisal Needed:Yes, the sale is often subject to an appraisal (which can sometimes lead to a lower counter-offer).No, we make cash offers, so there is no appraisal needed.
Average Days Until Sold:+/- 90 DaysWe provide immediate cash offers, and can close as quick as a couple of weeks and as long as 90 days or even more, depending on what suits your situation the best.
Number of Showings:It Depends2. It will be just us and our team.
Closing Date:30-60+/- days after accepting buyer’s offerThe date of YOUR CHOICE. It can be in 2 weeks, and it can be in the next season!
Who Pays For Repairs?Negotiated during the inspection periodWe pay for all repairs. You do not need to make any repairs or updates to the property because we will buy it as-is.

*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 or updates 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 without any repercussions on their end. 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. Overall, it can be a sticky situation for sellers who accept offers with these two particular clauses.

Here at Alberta Property Buyers, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal. We also don’t need any updates or repairs done from your end, as we are buying your house as-is.

Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You Get What You Need

When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your Alberta house offers.

We want you to be sure that the route you choose when it comes to selling your property is the one that is the most beneficial for you from all aspects. Be it money, time, the work needed on the property, or the hassle, for some it is worth it to go through with it for the amount they may be able to get at the end. For others, their situation is tough and they just want out.

Yes, here at Alberta Property Buyers we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house, but we offer other benefits that the traditional house sale route can’t offer, such as:

From Offer to Close and Cash in your Hand in as Little as 10-14 Days.

You can get rid of the headache that that property has given you time and time again fast and avoid paying one more utility payment, tax payment, insurance payment, mortgage payment, you get the idea. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close, don’t forget to take into account all of the costs you will incur due to holding that property during the time you have it listed and are waiting for the property to close. That is money you won’t be recouping through the sale but something that will be coming straight out of your pocket.

Don’t Worry About Fixing Anything up or Cleaning Your House Again and Again for Buyer after Buyer.

We don’t care how messy your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer upper? Great! We love projects). We want to make an offer on your house today. By selling to a company like ours, you can save yourself the time and further financial investment, leaving you with saving that amount of money.

No Pesky Closing Costs. We’ve Got you Covered!

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in Alberta, we make it easy for you. We can discuss and come to an agreement regarding all of the closing costs. What we offer you is what you get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property). Sounds pretty refreshing, eh?

So when you add up the time you could save by working with Alberta Property Buyers, the no-hassle experience, and the money you’ll save on commissions, fees, and holding costs while you wait to sell the traditional route, it’s obvious why for so many homeowners in Alberta selling to a cash house buyer is the best viable option.
