Selling Directly Vs. Listing With A Local Agent

Even in a seller’s market like Texas, it’s smart to look at your options. Which selling option will actually help you reach your goals with the sale of your house, and which will end up costing you too much in time, money, and stress? While you may be able to get a higher price listing with a local agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket (or less stress). Dive into the details below to compare your selling options.

Closing Date:30 to 60 +/- days after accepting buyer’s offer.The date of YOUR CHOICE.
Who Pays For Repairs?Negotiated during the inspection period.We pay for all repairs.
*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 River Walk Home Buyers, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.

Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You Meet Your Goals

When you sit down and compare the numbers, you begin to see the real benefits that each way of selling a house or property in San Antonio can offer. At River Walk Home Buyers, we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house, but the other benefits we offer may outweigh those offered by a traditional house sale.


From offer to close and cash in your hand in as little as 7 days.

Avoid paying one more month of utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, etc. When you list your house with a traditional agent, you may have to wait 90+ days to close. Once you figure in the costs of holding that property during the time it’s listed, you can see how those costs add up fast.

You won’t have to worry about cleaning up or expensive repairs.

We don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer? we love projects!). River Walk Home Buyers wants to make a fair cash offer on your house today. We will save you time and money by purchasing your house – no matter what the condition!

Closing fees? We’ve got you covered.

Because we are San Antonio‘s full-service professional home buyer, we make it easy for you. What we offer you is what you get at closing, 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 selling your house directly to River Walk Home Buyers, our guarantee of a no-hassle selling experience, and the money you will save on commissions, fees, and holding costs, it’s no surprise why so many Texas homeowners choose a professional house buyer as their best option.
