Selling To Bay Area Property Buyers vs. Listing With A Local CA Agent

In a real estate market like the San Francisco Bay Area, it’s always best to understand all of your options. Then you will be in a position to discover what avenue will help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house.

The Numbers Will Show You The Best Way To Your Goals.

We’ve all heard: “Numbers don’t lie.” Just make sure that you are following all the numbers that impact your situation. 

When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your house offers.

At Bay Area Property Buyers our goal is to craft an offer that will be fair and reasonable for your specific property. We also offer other benefits that going the traditional house sale route can’t give you.


How fast can you get from receiving an offer to closing and cash in your hand? Will it take 15 months or 15 weeks or 15 days? The impact on your life will be significantly different depending on the amount of time it takes to complete the sale of your property. 

Are you prepared for 15 more months of mortgage payments, tax payments, insurance payments, and utility payments? Every month you continue to own that property you rack up more expenses. Time really does equal money. But when you are holding a property you want to sell, more time equals more money going out of your pocket. 

You can avoid all the aggravation of spending money on a house you want to sell. You can sell it now and avoid all the expenses and stress.


If you list a house, you hope it will sell soon. But you have no way of knowing when the selling process will be completed. You commit to a 6 month listing with one agent and hope it never ever takes that long…but it may. 

The agent will wisely tell you that the property will sell faster if it is in perfect condition and 100% updated. However, that could cost you thousands of dollars and months of time. 

Do you want to do all the painting, repairing, and remodeling yourself? Do you really want to hire and manage a contractor? You’ve probably heard horror stories about contractors. 

Do you really want to spend the money and time on this house now? And all that work will also increase the agent’s commission which will increase your expenses.

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