Work The Numbers And See What’s Right For Your Situation…

When you really work the numbers, you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your MA house can offer.

Here at Homevisor we can work with you to determine which approach is best for your goals. We can either make you an immediate cash offer, or we can put our experience and expertise to work and list your house on the market for top dollar.

If selling to us for cash, we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house … but we also offer other benefits that the traditional house sale route can’t offer.

Close as quick or as slow as you want — cash in your hand in as little as 7 days

You can get rid of the headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, you get the drill. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close … you have to figure in all of the costs of holding that property during the time you have that property listed and are waiting for the property to close.

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 Massachusetts, 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 liens on the property). Pretty refreshing, eh?

So, when you add up the time you could save by working with Homevisor, 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 homeowners selling to a professional house buyer turns out to be the best viable option. And if it’s not, we have you covered there as well!

*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 Homevisor, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
