Can you sell your house without a Realtor?
If you’ve tried selling your home the traditional way with a Realtor, you need a faster sale, there’s not enough equity to sell traditionally, or if you just want to explore all possible solutions, then here’s a real story of how we helped a family that tried selling with an experienced agent, but in the end needed an alternative that involved selling their home without a Realtor and the associated expenses and longer process.
Jess, Zach, and their two kids lived in a great location in Webster Groves, Missouri, one of the most desirable areas in the Saint Louis region. They outgrew their home and fell in love with another better suited for their growing family. They bought it, contingent on selling their current home, which was already on the market. They got an experienced Realtor to sell their house. They quickly got their first offer, which while below the aggressive asking price was still a very fair offer. They wanted to accept it, but the agent advised them to decline and they did. Several accepted offers later, none of them could quite make it to the closing table, despite the highly desirable area.
While they were concerned, the seller of their new home was losing patience, so they waived the contingency and moved into their new home. They struggled to figure out how they would continue making two mortgage payments and even discussed letting it go to foreclosure. That’s when they reached out to People First Real Estate Advisors. They were provided multiple options and decided having us take over their mortgage payments and all other expenses on their previous home was best for them.
We did some fixing up and even fixed the furnace when it broke. No hassle and no worries for the family now happily enjoying their new home. Before they came to us they were concerned about losing the home to foreclosure. Not only were we able to prevent that, but they even got paid once we sold the house to it’s new owner (a nice, young father of two that loved the area). There are various ways we’re ready, willing, and able to buy when most others won’t even consider it.
