Selling your Home Through an R.E.A.
A house sale commission is 6% of its commercial value. That is an expense that the seller homeowner must pay.
The 6% sale commission charged by real estate agents isn’t ruled by law, but the practice has made that it is the amount to be paid for the real estate agents’ work.
On many occasions, there is more than one real estate agent involved in a sale home negotiation; in this case, the sale commission will be distributed among the agents involved in the house sale transaction.
Closing costs are expenses and fees associated with buying and selling a home, such as taxes, insurance title, appraisal, and loan fees.
The closing costs may vary between 2% and 5% of the sale value of the house.
Other closing costs could include:
- Appraisal, appraising a property can cost anywhere from $ 500 to $ 1,200 in Portland, depending on the location and price of a property to be evaluated.
- Inspection. Typically home Inspections are paid at the site; they are not included in the closing costs, but it is an expense that is done by the property seller.
- Property taxes. So that the sale of a property can proceed, it must be up to date with the property taxes, an expense that the selling homeowner must make.
Selling Your Home To Better Off Home Buyers.
- You don’t pay real estate agents commission fees.
- You don’t pay home appraisal, closing costs, or any other expense related to your home sale process.

Time It Takes To Purchase Your House.
While it takes at least 90 days to sell your house through a real estate agent, the same transaction with an investor such as Better Off Home Buyers takes as little as 7 days, in many cases, we have bought houses in just 2 days.
Selling your property should be a fast and safe operation. A real estate agent can’t guarantee that your property will ever sell, a lender could deny a mortgage loan to a potential buyer, or it may happen that at the last minute your buyer regrets.
