List My House in Utah or
Sell to a House Buying Company?
Exactly how many things are there to consider when selling a house?
What about price for your house, how fast will my house sell, when do I get my money or when do I have to move? Besides this, there are many other things to consider when you want to sell your house. Keep reading to learn a lot more about listing a house or selling to an investor or skip down to the video.
When people ask should I list my house or sell it to an investor, there is usually a lot of questions being asked concerning things such as How many people will be going in and out of my house, How much will the commissions and fees be, Who will have to pay for the repairs, Do I have to take everything out of my house, And when do I have to move are the most asked questions we get from house sellers.
Sometimes we are in a house selling market that favors sellers or a market that favors buyers. It is always smart to look at your options and see what will help you best reach the goals you want with the sale of your house. What is important is knowing how much money you will actually get with either option and if all of your other needs will be met while selling your Utah home.
- Can I move after my house closes and I get my money? How long can I stay?
- How long does it take for my house to sell? What if I list my house with an agent?
- How many people will be going through my house? Do I have to be there?
- What about Inspections, Appraisals, Financing and the closing costs of the sale?
These are some of the questions and concerns that home sellers have when trying to decide how to sell their house. Should I list a home or sell my house to a professional house buying company sometimes is a tough decision.
When you are thinking “I want to sell my house”, it really is a lot to think about and consider. Besides the things mentioned above and below in the video, determining home value is so important. The best place to start when you want to determine a value for your house is with a real estate agent or an investor that buys houses. The agent will give you an idea of what your house would sell for and how much money you would receive from the sale of your house, and a house buying company will tell you how much they will pay for your house. Many people will search on the internet for homes for sale on Zillow and Redfin in an effort to try and find out what their house is worth. These sites are OK, but not that reliable in the Utah market to determine price or value.

Hi, my name is Gary Parker, and thank you for visiting our page dedicated to helping you decide if you should list your house with a real estate agent or sell your house to a professional house buying company such as Gary Buys Houses.
Who will Be Going Through My House
The first thing I wanted to talk to you about is, who’s going to be going through your house throughout this process? Well, with the real estate agent, you could have 30 or 40 people come through the house. Someone will make an offer that you accept, then they will have a home inspector come through, the mortgage company will have an appraiser come through, and there could be other people coming through before the whole process is over. With Gary Buys Houses, we show up to our appointment, we make our inspections, we make an offer, and if you accept it, we’re done with the process of walking through your house.
Commissions Closing Costs & Fees
Next I want to talk about those pesky commissions, closing costs, and fees. When listing with a real estate agent, you’re going to have to pay those commissions, the fees, and the closing costs. With Gary Buys Houses, we pay for all of those costs. For example, if we give you an offer of $200,000 on your house and there’s no mortgage or liens, you get $200,000 at closing. We pay for everything. This helps us let you know exact to the penny how much you’re going to receive with our offer at closing.
The next thing is, what about repairs? Who will make all the repairs? Well, when you list a house with the real estate agent, you’re going to have to make all the repairs that the buyer wants you to make or else they could cancel the contract. With Gary Buys Houses, it doesn’t matter how extensive the repairs are. We don’t care. We will buy a house in any condition.
Packing and Moving
Okay, so what about packing and moving? With a real estate agent, you’re going to have to have your house totally vacant, no contents in the house, cleaned and ready for the new buyers to move in the day of your closing. So, you will need to be moved into your new place. With Gary Buys Houses, you can pack the stuff you want to take, you can leave whatever you want in the house, and we’ll donate it to charity or we will throw it away if there’s no value there. You only have to pack what you want to take.
Close When You Want-Get Your Money Now & Move Later-Easy
As far as when do you have to move, with Gary Buys Houses, you can close when you want, you can get your money right at closing no matter when you are going to move, and you can wait two or three weeks or two or three months before you have to move. That way you have plenty of money to take care of things and get you into your new place.
So what does all of this mean? This means that if you want to sell your house to a professional house buying company, we can take away all the hassles: no repairs, no fees, no closing costs, move when you want, close when you want…YOU ARE IN CONTROL. Everything is taken care of, and we make it as simple as possible for you, the seller.
How Much Is My House Worth
As mentioned, Zillow and Redfin are not that great for someone to try and figure out what their house is worth. We also mentioned it is a good idea to ask and real estate agent and an investor what your house is worth. You can also go to a web site to determine home value that allows you to see what houses like yours are currently listed for.
