A Direct Sale vs. Hiring an Agent When Selling Your House in Raleigh

Do you own a house you that you are thinking about selling? You probably already know that the traditional way of selling a house is by using a realtor to put it on the market. However, there is also the option of direct selling. Now that direct selling is on your mind now, what exactly is the best option to sell your house in Raleigh. Events that spring up in life can change your housing situation even when you least expect it. The best option on how to sell really depends on how much time to you can spare and how it will affect you financially. 

Setting Appointments to Show Your House

You need to ask yourself an important question. Are you ready and willing to to make yourself and anyone else in your household invisible while keeping your home spotless at all times? Despite how much you really want to sell your house in Raleigh, it is quite the hassle and inconvenience to have to jump into action and prepare your house and your family for a showing after a long day at work. Not only that, you also have to work with the agent selling your house, you will need to deal with buyer’s agents who will also be the ones showing your home. If you want to sell your house, there is absolutely no flexibility with the scheduling of appointments for potential buyers to view your house. You will have to accept the appointments as they come. This means keeping your house spotless. You will have to stop what you’re doing and disappear while your house is being shown.  

If you’d like to avoid all that hassle, a direct sale might be a better option for you. Doing a direct sale will allow you to forego having to remain constantly on top of your home’s appearance. When putting your house on the market, staging is usually a good idea. You won’t have to worry about that either in a direct sale.

Investing More Before Selling

Is your house show ready or do repairs and updates need to be made before selling on the market? Making updates to your home to give it more curb appeal from the outside as well as making updates to the inside add to the expenses of selling your house in Raleigh with a real estate agent. You’ll need to be on top of any necessary repairs. A home inspection will reveal any minor or major repairs that will affect the selling process. You could be required to spend even more money on repairs in order for the property to qualify for the buyer’s mortgage loan. You may even be required to cover the costs for professional photography and advertising the property.

When working with a professional buyer, none of the concerns or costs associated with curb appeal or updates will be an issue. Major or minor repairs can be forgotten and worrying in general about your home’s appearance will fly out the window when you sell your house in Raleigh  through a direct sale. 

Professional Expenses

Real estate agents charge commissions that you will have to pay. Appraisers and inspections only add stress to the selling process.

Making a direct sale commonly means that there are no commissions and no inspections. You will not be on the hook for any repairs.


Due to the nature of traditional listings, there is no guarantee that you will close on the initial scheduled date. This is true for selling your house in Raleigh through a real estate agent.
