Selling To A List Properties vs. Listing With A Local Texas Agent
Even in a seller’s market like Texas, 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 with a local Killeen agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache.

How Do The Numbers Add Up For You?
We may not pay what you will see on the MLS but you have to keep in mind all of the time and money you are actually saving by a direct sale. You won’t have to pay commissions, fees, repair costs, or have to wait around, not knowing when the house will sell. The longer you own a home, the more it is costing you. This should be taken into consideration before deciding how to sell. When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your Texas house offers.
Closing Fast Will Save You Money
Ask any property flipper and they will tell you that selling a home quickly puts more money in your pocket in the long run. By selling your house right away instead of months down the road, you will be able to stop paying property taxes, homeowners insurance, monthly utility bills, and the monthly maintenance costs. Owning a house is expensive. Before you list, think about how long it will be before the house actually sells. You could be waiting for months to find a buyer and go through the escrow process resulting in thousands of dollars don the drain.
You Won’t Have To Make Repairs Or Keep It Clean For Property Showings
If you have ever put a house on the MLS, you will know that surprise showing happen all the time. If people want to see your house, you should let them. However, this means you will need to keep the house showing ready and likely leave the property while people are checking out your house. Not only is this a lot of work for you, but it can also be uncomfortable having to leave your own home, knowing people are walking around looking at everything. In addition, you won’t need to make a single repair. We buy as-is, so you can keep the cash in your pocket and save yourself some time and energy.

*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 A List Properties , we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
