A traditional sale isn’t right for every house in Phoenix. Some houses and situations will find greater benefit by selling quickly and directly! Find out if it’s the right choice for you in our latest post!

A direct sale isn’t always considered by Phoenix homeowners, however, it should be. With expensive commission costs and no guaranteed sale date, listing your house can be a bit of a gamble. Below are five reasons you may opt to sell your house directly in Phoenix.

#1 – You Need To Sell Within A Specific Timeframe

If you need to sell your house by a certain date or as soon as humanly possible, working with a Phoenix real estate agent may not be right for you. The listing process can take months. Some people find that their house isn’t selling at all forcing them to accept a lower offer while still having to pay out an agent’s commission. When you choose to sell your Phoenix house directly to The Trusted Home Buyer, you will be able to get an offer right away, closing in days instead of weeks or months. We will always work with you to find the closing date that best fits into your schedule!

#2 – There Is Another Property You Want To Buy

If there is another property you are interested in buying, but the purchase is contingent on the sale of your current property, you may want to consider selling directly. Doing so will allow you close quickly, without any hurdles so you don’t end up missing out on buying the property of your dreams. Run the numbers for yourself by getting an offer for your property for Phoenix house right away!

#3 – You Don’t Want To Spend Money Upfront

Listing your house with a real estate agent in Phoenix will often come with upfront costs. You will need to clean up the house, make repairs, and get it ready to be presented on the MLS. There are often unexpected costs for things like additional marketing, staging, are professional photos. The worst part is that you could spend all of this money upfront only to find yourself lowing your asking price if the property isn’t selling. When all is said and done, it may not be worth the effort or the cost to put your house on the Phoenix MLS.

#4 – You Don’t Want To Deal With Showings or Cleaning

Having people come to see your house isn’t always easy depending on your situation. In order to have your house sell fast using the traditional listing process, the property will need to be shown in the best light. This means keeping the house extra clean and always showing ready. There will always be people who drive by and request to see the house last minute. The last thing you will want to do is turn down a potential buyer because the house is in shambles.

#5 – You Don’t Want To Pay Expensive Agent Commissions

Let’s be honest here. Some agents are great and combined with the right property, everyone can win. However, it does not always make sense to pay someone 6% of your final sale price to help you with the process. By avoiding agent commissions and all of the other costs of a traditional sale, you will be able to keep thousands of dollars in your pocket.

Your Alternative To Listing Your Phoenix House

At The Trusted Home Buyer, what we want people to know is that you have options. You don’t have to go through the process of cleaning, repairing, and making the house perfect before offering it up for sale.
