When we had our garage sale a couple weeks ago, a guy who flips houses asked if we were selling the house. We said we were and he gave us his card. Called him a couple days ago and after some back and forth we accepted. Really had to think about it because although it seems low compared to what the realtor said she could get, in the end we should be within $1000 of the net. Maybe even if it took more than a month to sell as we would have another mortgage payment....

Plus We don't have to clean/ repair/ or have showings. No stretching or cleaning carpet, no touching up paint, or cleaning up dog hair. Believe me, I could get up enough dog hair in this house to make another one........ Then do it again a month later.

    Awesome!! Realtors tell you one thing but...... They'll list it at what ever price you want to get your hopes up, then when it doesn't sell, drop the price until you loose your butt and they still make a good commission! They are at the top of my favorites list along with lawyers and used car salesmen!!
    You're money ahead!

    I THINK we could have sold it quick at that price. I think a good home inspector would have nickel and dimed a grand or two out of us too.......

    Congratulations on selling your house with little to no effort. That is worth way more than 1K all by itself!!

    Hope this way of selling works out well for you. Nothing like screwing a realtor out of a windfall they don't deserve! :up:

    Not ING with anything is worth 1000, EASY.

    Not having to deal with a Realtor, PRICELESS!
