Selling To “We Buy Houses In Tennessee” VS. Listing It With An Agent.

What if you have a house you need to sell fast and can’t afford to have it sit on the market for months, even years? What if the house is in bad shape, and you can’t afford to spend money, time, or energy to fix it, not knowing if it will even sell after you fix it up? What if you are forced to update the house to compete with other houses sold in your market? All this without a guarantee that your house will even sell at all!

Our August 2020 All Cash Purchase.

Although agents have a place in today’s market, more homeowners choose to sell their house in TN to us at “We Buy Houses In Tennessee” for precisely these reasons. Selling a house with an agent can be daunting. Often agents will ask you to clean and fix the house to compete with other similar houses currently on the market. This means you must make repairs and update the house even if no repairs are needed. This includes investing money in landscaping and curb appeal.

Even when you find a buyer  (or wait till a buyer finds you), you have to hope their finances are in order and are approved by their lender to purchase your house. All this takes time, and you must maintain landscaping, pay taxes, mortgage insurance, and utilities. The longer your house sits on the market, the less money you will pocket due to all these accumulating monthly bills!

When If the house does sell you still have to pay closing costs, selling costs and agent fees and commissions. Now you see why so many home sellers choose to sell their house to us.

  • We can buy with tenants in place
  • NO commissions and no fees. We are not agents.
  • We pay your closing costs!
  • We buy “as is”. You do not need to make repairs.
  • Foreclosure? No Problem! We will stop foreclosure.
  • We buy houses in CT regardless of the location and condition of the house.

Even in a seller’s market like TN, it’s a good business practice to always look at your options and determine the best course of action that would result in the best result. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local Tennessee agent, that doesn’t always mean more money in your pocket or less headache when you sell your TN house for cash to us at Peak Offer. Dive into the details below to compare your options.

Remove Emotion from your decision. TRUST THE MATH.

When you work the numbers, you start to see the real benefits of each way of selling your TN house for cash offers. As investors, we can not offer you the full market price for your house. There would not be any room to make a profit on our investment otherwise, however,  here at Peak Offer, we offer other benefits that going the traditional house sale route can’t offer.

Here are a few:

icon 7 days

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, or mortgage payments… you get the drill. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close, you have to figure in all the costs of holding that property when you have it listed and are waiting to close.

icon - sell as is

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

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 want to make an offer on your house no matter what the condition. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket.

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if repairs 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 the home doesn’t appraise for the value the bank needs to close the loan. Anyone that says “NO” is dishonest, and be careful doing business with them. Inspect the contract and ask them directly. We do not have a financing contingency as we are cash buyers HOWEVER, we do have an inspection period to ensure the house is as presented. No one should buy a house without an inspection!

Here at Peak Offer, we don’t use bank financing, so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.

Often homeowners are in a less-than-ideal situation, and selling their house as is is the best course of action.
