Selling To We Buy Houses in Massachusetts vs. Listing With An Agent
Even in a sellers market like we see in many parts of Massachusetts, it’s a good idea to look at your options to see what will help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. Though it is possible you’d get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a Massachusetts agent, that doesn’t always result in more money on your bottom line. Explore the details below to see your options.

Run the Numbers and See Which Path Is Right for You…
When you compare you really start to see the benefits that each way of selling your Massachusetts house offers.
It is true that We Buy Houses in Massachusetts won’t be able to offer you full retail price for your house, this is where listing with an agent certainly wins out. However, for many of you out there the benefits we offer make selling your house to us a better option.
Let’s look at those benefits…
It’s Possible for Us to Move from Offer to Close to Cash in Your Hand Fast – in as Little as 7 Days
So instead of wading through the long home sale process, during which time you’re still paying utilities, taxes, insurance, mortgage, AND have the stress of selling the house, we can have the property out of your hands quickly. If you list your house and have to wait 90 or more days to close, it is prudent to account for all the holding costs that pile up while you are waiting for the property to sell.
You Don’t Have to Worry About Cleaning Your Home and Opening It up to Strangers for Multiple Showings
The cleanliness or condition of the property doesn’t matter a bit to us – no matter what shape it’s in, we’ve seen worse! We just need to look at the property once in order to confirm our cash offer for the house. And if the house is not a fit or it looks like we won’t be able to come to an agreement on a price, we won’t even waste your time with a showing. See how our buying process works here.
We Don’t Need You to Fix Anything up or Do Any Work on the Property Before Close
If you don’t have time, or money, or the know-how to do repairs on your house before selling, it’s no problem at all. In fact if it’s a complete fixer, that’s even better – we love projects! You can sell to us fast in any condition. This saves you time repairing or worrying about repairing your property.
We Pay All the Closing Costs/Fees
Paying all closing costs is just another way that we make it easier to sell your property. As a professional home buyer We Buy Houses in Massachusetts exists to make the process easier for YOU! And here’s a bonus for you – if you owe back payments on the mortgage, taxes, have liens, etc – we will pay those too if we strike the right deal.
Thus, what we offer you is what you get (minus any remaining mortgage payoff of course)! A nice change of pace from a “traditional” sale where you’ll be trying to calculate what percentage of the price will trickle down to you by the time you close.
All in All…
At the end of it, when you add up all the time, the no-hassle experience, and the money saved on commission, fees, and holding costs while working with We Buy Houses in Massachusetts… for many homeowners who need or want to sell fast it is the best option.
