Work the numbers and see which way helps you get there…
When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your Maryland house offers. Sure, here at Clipper City Home Buyers, we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house…but we offer other benefits that the traditional house sale route can’t offer, such as….
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, etc. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close, you’ll have to figure in all of the costs of holding onto that property during the listing and closing process.
Don’t worry about paying those pesky closing fees (we’ll take care of those)
Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in Maryland, we make it easy for you. We’ll pay all those closing costs. What we offer you is what you get (of course, minus any mortgage payoff or any other encumbrances on the property).
So when you add up the time you could save by working with us, the no-hassle experience, and the money you’ll save on commissions, fees, and holding costs while you wait to sell the traditional route…for many homeowners, selling to a professional home buyer is the best option.
Is it right for you?
