How selling with a realtor works (the old fashioned way)

Selling houses the old fashioned way typically means finding a local realtor and listing that house on the open real estate market. Real estate agents get 3 percent commission for listing your home, and buyer’s agent gets 3 percent commission too. That’s a total of 6 percent commission, plus title fees that the local title company charges.  There may be extra fees the real estate broker charges. If you sold your house the old fashioned way, you would not sell house fast, it would be very slow. Once a buy came along, you would get low balled by a bunch of people, and have to do real estate showings at your house. The average house needs 6 real estate open houses in order to get an offer. That offer may not be for top dollar either, and it could come with contract stipulations that you fix your roof, or foundation. Sometimes even if you do the repairs, the buyer doesn’t close anyway and leaves you in worse shape than before. That’s why some people have to get multiple offers from dozens of showings. Sometimes realtors just ask you to decrease the price before closing instead of doing repairs. This is what happens in all markets, even sellers markets, and definitely buyers markets!

How selling with investorade works

You meet your investorade representative at your house, or set a time for us to go to the house. Don’t worry, we are used to seeing clutter, and ugly houses needing a few repairs. There is no need for home staging either. At the appointment, your investorade representative will take some photos, and give you a cash offer. There are no price reductions and we do not ask for you to do repairs. There are no real estate commissions, you can sell your house without an agent! Often times, homeowners get our offers and have their questions answered at the same time. The best time to sell a house, is when you get the best cash offer without commissions! If you accept our offer there is no cost to sell a house, and you can sell your house fast for cash and get the entire offer in your pocket.

Our sellers think it’s so convenient to sell to investorade! On average it takes less than half the time to sell with a realtor, and you can save tens of thousands of dollars in commission. Investorade understands that houses are not perfect, so we aren’t picky with houses that need repairs, or houses that have tenants. Our house cash offers are designed to be fair and take the stress of selling your house.

Take a look at the selling steps below!

We call it four steps, but really it is three, you talk to investorade to schedule your appointment, you meet your investorade rep in person, and you receive an offer. We call it a four step program though, because selling a house fast is your decision. We never pressure our clients to sell. Accepting an offer is the fourth step, after you have all the information. With other home buyers, it seems like that is step number one with them. The second you talk to them, they are already pressuring you to take an offer! Not with investorade.

  • Talk to a team member about the best sales option for your needs.
    We will never recommend a way for you to sell that is not in your best interest. You can “sell my Home” with confidence knowing you are dealing with a professional company.
  • Have a brief property visit with one of our market experts.
    They’ll walk through your home and explain our programs. They won’t care if you have an ugly house, or a few problems. They will know the home value.
  • Decide which sales program meets your needs.
    Whatever you choose, we’ll help you get the maximum price possible. There will be no real estate commissions, and we’ll allow you to “sell home” quickly and stress free.
  • Accept an offer.
    You can close in as soon as a week, or take your time moving. We will close at a local title company! If you want, we can send a local notary for your home closing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any fees or comissions to work with you?

If you sell through our We’ve Got Your Back program, the real estate agent does get a discounted commission. Our other two sales programs, Turbo Cash and Max Offer, are all-cash programs, so there are zero fees or commissions: you pocket the full price.  With investorade it’s always a sellers market, which means we give you the best deal we possibly can.

How do you determine what cash price my property is worth?

We look at the location of the property, the current condition, values of comparable houses sold in the area recently, the cost of commissions and any needed repairs, and come up with a fair price that works for us and for you. Many sellers appreciate that we can offer cash, can close very quickly, and that we accept properties “as is.” We help you sell real estate by making everything very transparent, so you know what you are going to walk away with at closing.

What does “all-cash offer” mean?

All cash means exactly that—all cash! Our cash-offer programs don’t rely on traditional financing. When you sell through Turbo Cash or Max Offer, there’s no risk of financing falling through or closing being delayed. When you accept a cash offer, that’s the full amount you’ll receive. Sell your home to a company like investorade with a proven history to close. Investorade keeps a large amount of cash in the bank to use for our transactions!

Is there any obligation when I submit my property info?

Absolutely not. Once we research your property, we’ll set up a call with one of our expert team members to potentially get more details and go over our programs. From there, it’s 100% your decision whether you’d like to sell your house to or with us.

Is this even legit?

It is. The real estate industry is changing rapidly, and thousands of Americans are exploring their options when it comes to selling their house as quickly, easily, and fairly as possible. That’s where we come in. We offer a trusted, reliable alternative for property owners who may not have the time or ability to list their house on the market for top dollar. We’ll work with you to assess your situation, help you decide on the best sales option for you, and guide you through the process.
