Compare Selling To We Buy Central PA Homes vs. Listing With A Local PA Agent

It’s hard to compare because we’re actually home buyers AND Realtors. We do everything a traditional agent can do, but offer more options like buying your house for cash. It’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing, sometimes the ease of a cash offer is more appealing! Dive into the details below to compare your options.

Which Way Helps You Reach Your Goals?

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

Luckily, we make it easy because we’re a “one-stop-shop”! We’re both investors and Realtors! We can make you a fair cash offer and close quickly, or we can list your house and sell quickly for top dollar.

Some of the Benefits Of Working With Us

From offer to close and cash in your hand in as little as 7 days

You can get rid of the headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, you get the drill. If you list your house with us, it will take longer, but our aggressive advertising and marketing usually attract a buyer right away.

Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer

With our cash offer, we don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer? great! we love projects)... we’d like to make an offer on your house. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket. When you list your house with us, we will ask that you try to make your property as appealing as possible. That may include cleaning, making small repairs, or yard work, things that can bump up your “curb appeal”.

Don’t worry about paying those pesky closing fees (we’ve got you covered)

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in PA, we make it easy for you. With our cash offer, we pay for 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). When we list your property, you’ll be subject to the same fees and costs as any seller on the open market.

*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 agree 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 We Buy Central PA Homes, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
