Selling To Dependable House Buyer vs. Listing With A Local NC Agent

Even in a sellers market like NC, 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 Asheville agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. Dive into the details below to compare your options.

Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You Get There…

When you crunch the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way  of selling your NC house offers.

Yes, here at Dependable House Buyer we won’t be able to offer you full retail price for your house… but we do our best to make up for that by offering other benefits that realtors and retail house buyers can’t offer.


Cash in Hand as Soon as Seven Days after We Agree on a fair price

Say goodbye to the stress of maintaining and paying for a house. Utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments and mortgage payments can all add up to drain your bank account fast. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to sell and close…be ready to pay 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 fixing anything up, or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer

Home inspection reports can be 20-50 pages long, and many retail buyers will demand that you fix every last one of the items found, great and small.  Worse yet, major findings such as radon gas, termite infestation and mold damage will turn away even the most adventurous home buyers. This can rapidly turn what looks like a great offer on your house into a nightmare of expensive repairs, or worse yet withdrawal of the offer, leaving you to start over. Retail buyers also expect to see a perfectly clean and manicured, uncluttered house every time they look- and selling a house may take 20 or more showings.

Here at Dependable House Buyer we aren’t afraid of dirt, grime, pet odors or pest infestations. We revel in dirt, and look forward to a chance to put on our respirators and turn a putrid moldy basement into a great little man-cave or living area. We’re also not afraid to fix anything and everything. We have the expertise to build a house from the ground up, so no job is too big to handle. These efforts do of course require extensive time and money, so we need to factor those in when we make our cash offer to buy your house.  but we are faster and cheaper than regular contractors and can usually  We don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer? great! we love projects)... we’d like to make an offer on your house. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket.

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 NC, 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 debts on the property). Pretty refreshing eh?

*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. This happens often, usually at the last minute.

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