Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You Get There…

When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your Michigan house offers.

Yes, here at We Buy Houses In Michigan we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we also offer other benefits that the traditional house sale route can’t offer.

Like…

From offer to close and cash in your hand in as little as 7 days

You can get rid of the headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, you get the drill. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close… you have to figure in all of the costs of holding that property during the time you have that property listed and are waiting for the property to close.

Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer

We don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer? great! we love projects)... we’d like to make an offer on your house. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket.

Don’t worry about paying those pesky closing fees (we’ve got you covered)

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in Michigan, we make it easy for you. We pay for all of the closing costs. What we offer you is what you get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property). Pretty refreshing eh?

So when you add up the time you could save by working with We Buy Houses In Michigan, 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 house buyer is the best viable option.

*A financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t get approved for a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for a high enough value. This is especially true if the house isn’t in great condition, which often causes the bank to refuse to finance the sale for the buyer.

Here at We Buy Houses In Michigan, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
