Listing With A Local Real Estate Agent vs. Selling To Vol State Home Buyers
Even in a seller’s market like Columbia, it’s a good idea to weigh your choices and determine what would best help you achieve your goals with the selling of your home. While a local Columbia agent can be willing to get you a higher “top line” purchase price, this does not necessarily equate to more money in your wallet or less stress. Compare your choices by diving into the information below.

Work the numbers and see which path can get you there the quickest…
When you crunch the numbers, you’ll see how much of a difference each method of selling your Central TN home makes.
Although we won’t be able to sell you maximum market prices for your home, we will and will provide you with other perks that a conventional house sale can’t or won’t provide.
This can be seen in the following examples:
In as little as 14 days, you can close your house.
You will get rid of the property’s headache quickly and stop having to pay any more utility bills, tax bills, insurance bills, interest payments, and so on. When you list your home and wait 90 days or longer to sell, you must weigh in all of the costs of keeping the house during the time you have it listed and waiting to close.
There’s no need to stress about maintaining or cleaning your property.
We don’t mind if your house is filthy (we’ve seen worse!) or if it needs a lot of work (a total fixer? great!). We enjoy working on campaigns, and we’d like to make a bid on your home.
We Truly Mean It When We Say There Are No Closing Costs.
We make it easy for you to sell your house in Central TN because we are a full-service experienced home buyer. All closing expenses are covered by us. When we say “everything,” we really mean it. There are no undisclosed payments or strange things on the settlement list. What we owe you is just what you will get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property). That’s something I’m sure your agent can’t guarantee!
When you consider the amount of time you might save from partnering with Vol State Home Buyers, the hassle-free experience you’ll get, and the money you’ll save on commissions, fines, and holding expenses as you wait to market the usual way… for many area homeowners selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option.
*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 Vol State Home Buyers, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
