The Pennsylvania housing market favors sellers, but it’s still important to do your research. Most sellers consider listing their home with a local Pennsylvania agent at one point or another, but some decide that this isn’t the right avenue to pursue.
Ask the Most Important Question: How Much Money are You Walking Away With?
The most important question to ask yourself is how much money is going to your pocket. Even though you can get a higher price for your home by working with a realtor, this doesn’t necessarily translate to more money and less headache.
As you go through the pros and cons to working with a realtor vs selling to us, you can make a more informed decision. The cash offer, the quick closing process and the ability to sell the property as-is are all winning points.
It pays to do your research when selling your Philadelphia property. Let’s dig deeper into the options that are available to you.

How are we able to do all of this?
First, we give all sellers a cash offer. This means there are no banks to work with, no appraisals needed and no timeline to follow. Second, we buy homes in as-is condition. Don’t worry about the painting or the carpet or old cabinets. We’ll purchase your home in any condition, saving you extensive time and money that you probably don’t have to give right now.
Only you can decide what’s right for you. We are always happy to help our sellers who are looking to get rid of their property quickly, efficiently and for a fair price. At the same time, we understand that some people prefer to hire a realtor and go through a traditional selling process. We support you either way!
