Sell Your House Fast vs. MLS Listings


Even in a seller’s market, it’s smart to look at your options and see how can you achieve your goals. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price with a local agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache.

Sometimes listing your home is simply not the best option. We can help sell your house fast with more convenience.

Appraisal Needed:Yes, the sale is often subject to appraisalNONE – We make cash offers
Average Days Until Sold:+/- 91 DaysIMMEDIATE CASH OFFER
Number of Showings:Varies1 (Just Us)
Closing Date:30-60 +/- days after accepting the offerThe Date Of YOUR CHOICE
Who Pays For Repairs?:Repairs can scare away home buyers. You’ll need to schedule contractors and make repairs to get the property market-ready. Repairs found during the inspection period will be negotiated after you’ve accepted the buyer’s offer. These can change the selling price or make you pay out of pocket before closing. We Buy As-Is, No Repairs or Cleaning Required

*An inspection contingency is a part of standard real estate contracts. It allows the buyer to do an inspection and negotiate a new price or cancel the sale if there are repairs to be made. If you can’t come to an agreement, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. A financing contingency uses a similar concept. The buyer can back out of the purchase if they can’t find a mortgage or if the house doesn’t appraise for the value the bank requires to close the loan.

Here at Lanier House Buyers, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal. We buy houses with cash.
