Selling Your House To Us (At Portland Cash Home Buyers) Compared With Listing Your House With A Local OR Agent
Selling your house? You have options and it makes good financial sense to compare your options before deciding.
One option might seem attractive at first, but when you dig deeper you’ll realize that a different option might be more suitable to you.
To help you decide which option is best for you, we’ve included this free educational guide to help you “crunch the numbers” and figure out for yourself which choice is better in your situation. Ultimately, it boils down to: how much money you want for your house versus how much time, money, and hassle you’re willing to put up with. Here’s the chart that compares your two options so you can crunch the numbers for yourself…
|Selling w/ An Agent||SOLD To Portland Cash Home Buyers|
|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 cash offers|
|Average Days Until Sold:||+/- 91 Days||IMMEDIATE CASH OFFER|
|Number of Showings:||It Depends||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|
Now compare which is better for you…
When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your OR house offers.
Sure, when you list through an agent you might get more money, but… you’ll also have to SPEND more too. (So in the end, will you really come out ahead?) Not only that but it can be a lot of work to make sure you clean up and fix up the property so it’s in pristine shape for prospective buyers to look at.
On the other hand, we at Portland Cash Home Buyers might not be able to offer you “full retail value” but we do provide other benefits to sellers that you just won’t get when you list your house on the open market. For example, here are just some of the benefits we offer…
We close fast: we can even hand you cash in 7 days
If you choose to sell your house to us, you just tell us when you want to close. We have specially built our company to be able to close fast… yes, we can even close in as little as 7 days if that’s what you want!
Not only do you get your money more quickly than if you listed your house, but you also avoid paying MONTHS of all the bills you’d have to pay while an agent showed your house to buyers. (That’s right: if an agent has listed your house, you’ll still have to pay utility bills, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments… so remember to subtract all that money from the money you’ll get when you sell the house).
… but you don’t have to deal with that when you sell to us!
Leave it as-is… don’t worry about fixing or cleaning
Even if your house needs plenty of repairs or if it’s in rough shape, that’s okay (we’ve seen worse!) You’ll save time and money, and you WON’T have to deal with contractors spend money on property repairs. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket.
NO closing fees! (We’ll take care of them for you)
Listing your house to try and sell it the traditional way can be costly. Along with all those repair bills and utility bills, you’ll also have to pay closing fees! Ouch!
But we specialize in helping property owners who want to sell, and to show our commitment to you, we’ll take care of all those closing fees for you. What we offer you is what you get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property).
So again, when you add up the cost of selling through an agent versus what you DON’T have to pay when you sell to us, the choice is yours: pay more to get more, or pay nothing and accept a slightly lower offer. (You might end up coming out near the same at the very end… so why not sell to us faster?)

*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 Portland Cash Home Buyers we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
