Selling Your Massachusetts House To Simple House Offer vs. Listing With Agent
Even in a sellers market like MA, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local Boston agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. Dive into the details below to compare your options.

Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You Get There…
When you include the actual, final negotiated price (not the price you wish for), ALL of the expenses, maintenance and upkeep, utilities and cost of repairs, real estate commissions, repairs from home inspection and negotiated items like cash at closing and discounts that buyers always ask for; you’ll see the gap closes very quickly. DON’T FORGET TO ADD ATTORNEY FEES, CLOSING FEES (TAX STAMPS), SMOKE DETECTOR INSPECTION, 5 MONTHS WATER BILL, UTILITIES, PROPERTY TAXES AND A HALF YEAR’S INSURANCE WHILE YOU’RE DOING REPAIRS. The results often show that your sale price after all that time, investment and work will be close if not less than our cash offer today.

Yes, here at Simple House Offer .com we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we also offer other benefits that going the traditional house sale route can’t offer.
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 Massachusetts, 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 Simple House Offer .com, 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 home owners selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option. Is it for you?
We DO NOT CHANGE our offer after giving you an offer… (once we give you an offer, we stick to it!)
Real Estate sold on the market against similar houses will all have home inspection done before they close the deal. The problem for the seller is that once the home inspector is done picking your house apart (they need to do this to justify their job), They will most certainly come up with hundreds if not THOUSANDS of dollars worth of repairs that your new buyer expects you to pay before they sign!
Nobody will give you all the numbers like we do. Unlike other cash buyers, we offer full transparency, honesty and respect.

*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 Simple House Offer .com we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
