Cost of Selling a House in Dallas Texas: Real Estate Investor vs. Agent

Even in a seller’s market like Texas, it’s smart to compare your options to see what will help you 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 Dallas agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket…or less headache. Compare the cost of selling a house with a local real estate agent, versus working with Happy Buy Homes.

Working the numbers for each option will allow you to see which option might be best for you when it comes to selling your house in Texas with an agent, or Happy Buy Homes.

Here at Happy Buy Homes, we will not be able to offer you full retail value for your house… although we do offer other benefits that going the traditional home sale route does not offer.


Cash in your hand in as little as 7 days – From Offer to Close

Avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments…and many other things, but I think you get it.  If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close… you will then be responsible for the costs of holding that property while waiting for the property to close.

No throwing $$$ at repairs or constantly cleaning your home for last-minute showings

Save your time and money by letting us make a cash offer on your house as-is.  Do not worry about fixing it up or making any repairs (a fixer upper? awesome! projects are our favorite!)

No stressing over closing fees… (We have you covered!)

Because we are a full-service professional home buying business here in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, we make it simple. The closing costs are paid for by us!  What we offer you is what you get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other hindrances on the property). Sounds pretty great, right?

So when you add up the time you could save by working with Happy Buy Homes, the no-hassle experience, and the money you’ll save on commissions, fees, and holding costs while you wait to sell the traditional route… for many area homeowners selling to a professional home buyer is the best viable option.

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do a home 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.

At Happy Buy Homes we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
