Which Selling Method Will Be Right For You?
After you get our offer, you will really be able to crunch the numbers to find out what will be best. Our prices are not full retail, however, once you consider all you will be saving on commissions, marketing, and other costs, a direct sale might end up being more lucrative. Find out if it is the right choice for you before signing any listing agreements.
There are many other money-saving benefits to consider as well…
Closing Fast Will Save You Money
When you sell directly to INI Home Buyers, you will be able to choose the day you want to close. It can be in as little as one week. By closing this quickly, you will avoid the utility costs, insurance expenses, property taxes, and other ownership costs you would otherwise be paying. If your house ends up sitting on the MLS (as many do) you might find yourself spending thousands on a house you don’t wish to keep.
Not Making Repairs Or Having To Clean Up Will Save You Money
Fixing up houses is our specialty. We love to see an old and run-down house be given new life. You can leave the house messy, and not have to worry about spending your money making repairs before the sale. We buy as-is, and will always pay you a fair price!
Not Paying Agent Fees or Commissions Will Save You Money
As professional home buyers, we do not ever collect a commission on the sale. We are direct buyers who will work with you without the use of a middle-man. By working together directly, you can avoid paying commissions or fees on the sale. There are no costs to you whatsoever.
When you consider all of the time and money you will save by selling directly, you might find a direct sale is the most lucrative option! We believe that you shouldn’t have to pay in order to sell your house! Find out if a direct offer is the right choice for you!

*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 INI Home Buyers we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
