Direct vs Listing
Decide What’s Best For You
It’s always smart to go over your options to see what will best help you reach your goals with the sale of your house. You may get a higher sales price when you list with a local real estate agent, but that doesn’t always result in more money in your pocket or less headache. Dive into the details below to compare your options. You may prefer selling your home directly.

Work The Numbers…
When you work the numbers, the benefits of both options are clear.
Here at Houston Direct Home Buyers, we can’t offer full retail value for your house, but we do offer benefits that the traditional route doesn’t.
From our offer to closing, you can have cash in your hand in as little as 7 days
You can rid yourself of the headache fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, and so on. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close, make sure to account for the costs of holding that property until it’s closed.
Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer
We don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (we love projects). We’d like to make an offer on your house. This saves you more time and money.
Don’t worry about paying those pesky closing fees (we’ve got you covered)
Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in TX, we make it easy for you. We pay for all of the closing costs. What we offer you is what you get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property). Pretty refreshing eh?
So when you add up the time you could save by working with Houston Direct Home Buyers, the no-hassle experience, and the money you’ll save on commissions, fees, and holding costs while you wait to sell the traditional route… for many area home owners selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option.

*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. 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 Houston Direct Home Buyers we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
