Selling To Halo vs. Listing With An Agent

Even in NJ seller’s markets, 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 New Jersey 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 really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way  of selling your NJ house offers.

Yes, here at Halo Homebuyers (full-disclosure) we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house, since we need to at least try and make a profit to put food on our tables…. but we offer other benefits that going the traditional house sale route typically does not 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 NJ, we make it easy for you. We pay for most if not all of the closing costs. What we offer you is usually what you get give or take a few dollars (you would just have to account for mortgage payoff amounts, potential encumbrances on the property and optional legal services). Pretty refreshing eh?

So when you add up the time you could save by working with Halo Homebuyers, 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 New Jersey home owners, selling to a trusted professional house buyer can be a great potential option.

*An Home 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 ANY 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.  Many times deals fall through over the simplest of repairs! Similarly, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a mortgage commitment or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.

Here at Halo Homebuyers we don’t use traditional bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal due to mortgage commitments or lack of funds.  In fact, we take this contingency completely out of the contract we use.
