Selling To Atlantic Shores Home Buyers vs. Listing With A Local NY Agent

Compare Your Options

While New York is certainly a seller’s market, examining your options to find the route that will best fulfill your sale goals is important. A highly professional real estate agent may place your home on the market at a higher price, but that almost never means that you receive more money. Weigh the options below to learn more about the cost and benefit of both choices.

Who Pays For Repairs?: Negotiated During Inspection Period NONE – We pay for all repairs

Before Making a Choice, Take a Hard Look at the Numbers

Examining the cost and profit of each home selling method will show you the hidden fees of selling through a realtor.

As a cash buyer, we won’t be able to pay the full price that a realtor-arranged sale would bring in. But, selling your home for cash offers several benefits that realtors simply can’t bring to the table.

We’ll Make an Offer And You’ll Get Paid In Days Not Months

The costs of owning your home throughout a long selling process can easily accumulate. Selling your home for cash means you can avoid costly Long Island mortgage, tax, insurance, and utility payments. Even a relatively quick realtor sale would come with a fair share of additional costs.

We’ll Purchase Your Home As Is, No Questions Asked

When we make an offer on your home, we don’t make any judgements, we’ve seen it all. We see past dirty interiors that require tons of repairs, and look at the potential value of the home. Don’t bother fixing it up before selling– the team at Atlantic Shores Home Buyers will take care of it.

Avoid Substantial Closing Fees

Above all, we like to make the process easy for our clients. Standard realtor closing fees run between 4% and 8% of the total home sale. When you sell your home to us, we’ll take care of all of the closing costs (with the exception of mortgage payoffs and any other property encumbrances).

By selling to a cash buyer, you can avoid the closing fees, renovation costs, and logistical difficulties of realtor sales. In fact, selling to a cash buyer is the preferable option for most sellers.

*It’s common practice for realtors to write an inspection or financing contingency into a purchase contract. An inspection contingency allows buyers to perform an in-depth inspection of the home, and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if the home requires minor or major repairs. A financing contingency allows buyers to back out of the purchase if they are relying on a mortgage loan, and the loan falls through, or if the appraisal value falls short of what the bank needs to close the loan. Because Atlantic Shores Home Buyers operates with cash only, we’ll never be unable to follow through with a deal.
