What happens when you sell without a real estate agent?

Growing up, I always thought to sell a house you needed one of those well dressed, smiling real estate agents. Mom would go bananas for a length of time; cleaning, organizing, downsizing. Then our real estate agent would come, walk around the house, take pictures and tell Mom we need to do more to the house “to attract a buyer”. While it is extremely helpful your real estate agent finds your buyer and facilitates the closing, wouldn’t another less work intensive option be nice to consider?

Selling to a real estate investor gives you just this extra option! With no real estate agent, you will be working directly with one of our real estate investors. In other words, you are speaking directly to your buyer! With Valley Residential Group LLC as your buyer, you won’t have to wait for financing approval or any pesky inspections! The offer presented to you includes the house just the way it is. No one is going to tell you to paint or clean or downsize. We simply ask that you leave the house AS-IS.

Another difference with selling without a real estate agent is you save on commission! In the state of Connecticut, the average commission is 4% – 6% of the sale price, split between your agent and the buyer’s agent. Just as a reference, if you sold a $200,000 house, commission you’re expected to pay can range between $8,000 and $12,000! Selling to a real estate investor means you found your buyer, you decided your time was better spent not working on a house you’re selling and you save thousands on commission!
