We Buy Houses Company vs. Listing With A Local Agent

Even in a sellers market when using a we buy houses company like Journey Home Buyers, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with selling your house fast. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache.

Selling your house fast without a we buy houses company like Journey Home Buyers can be challenging through traditional means

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

At JPHomeBuyers we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we do offer other benefits that going the traditional house sale route can’t offer.


From offer to close and put cash in your hand in as little as 14 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 have to figure in all of the costs of holding that property during the time you have that property listed and are waiting for the property to close.

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

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.

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

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer, we make it easy for you. 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). We keep it easy for you!

So when you add up the time you could save by working with JPHomeBuyers, 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 area homeowners selling to a professional we buy houses investor is the best viable option. But is it for you?
