Selling to Anna Buys Houses vs. Selling the traditional way
We know this might come as a surprise, but when we talk to sellers, we often encourage them to list their property with a realtor. Especially in a strong market, there’s a good chance they’ll get more money selling the traditional way. But there are instances when sellers don’t want to sell their property through a realtor, and that’s when we can help.
Selling a home can introduce a number of financial and emotional decisions. It’s wise to ask yourself: What is the primary goal in selling my home? To make as much as possible on the sale? To be okay making a little less, but be able to move out and close on a specific date that coordinates well with my schedule?
Other factors can also come in to play. Some of our clients don’t have the time or money to make updates or repairs to their home. Life is busy and they are ready to move on quickly. Some just aren’t comfortable showing their home to potential buyers in its current state. Others have beautiful homes but due to job relocations or family situations need to move at a specific time of year or even by a specific date and can’t risk the uncertainty of a traditional sale, where the sale may fall through, or the buyer sets the closing date.
Whatever your situation, it’s smart to look at all your options to see what will help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. This comparison has helped our clients determine which option can work best for them.

*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 Anna Buys Houses, we don’t use traditional mortgage financing so you don’t have to worry about your property meeting all the requirements of the lender.
