Selling To Better House Offer vs. Listing With A Local CA Real Estate Agent

Even in a seller’s market like Anaheim, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local Anaheim agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket. It also provides more headaches!

Dive into the details below to compare your options.

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. You will also be required (in most cases) to do a Termite Inspection which usually includes full tenting of the house! If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similar, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.

Here at BetterHouseOffer.com we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
