Real estate agents list properties for a real estate commission (generally 6 percent and the seller usually pay both sides of the commission). The average time to sell a property is between 4-8 months depending on the market the property is located. If you can wait up to 8 months to sell your property and do not have a problem with paying thousands of dollars in fees and commission then using an agent may be a good idea. Our company buys houses and the seller will avoid paying real estate commissions and they save thousands in other fees that are added when you sell using an agent. We take all of the risk and we buy your house in as little as 8 days. There a plenty of other perks when we buy your house.
