Traditional real estate marketing is designed for the most common situations of sellers and buyers - but not all situations are common! If you want to make the best decision for your unique circumstances, you should consider working with us instead. Here’s why:
|Murphy Home Buyers||Real Estate Agent|
|Do I have to pay a commission?||NO||YES (6% on average)|
|Do I have to pay closing costs?||NO||YES (2% on average)|
|How long does it take to get an offer?||Immediate||3 months on average|
|Is the offer subject to bank/finance contingencies?||NO||YES (many offers fall through)|
|Is an appraisal needed?||NO||YES|
|How many showings do I have to allow?||1 (just us!)||Likely 10+ depending on your agent|
|How long until I can close?||You choose||0-60 days after accepting an offer|
|Who Pays For Repairs?||We do||Negotiated during inspection period|
*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. Similarly, 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 Murphy Home Buyers, we don’t use bank financing, so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
