Unsuccessful Listing of Your Property Using a a Real Estate Agent

Don't worry, it happens all the time. About 40% of listings end up failing for one reason or another. 

Real estate agents regularly over-promise and under-deliver. They aren't entirely at fault because the real estate industry is set up to provide incentives for those who tell owners they can get a higher price than their competitors. In many cases, the agent may have truly believed they could sell a house for a specific amount, or maybe they needed the business and believed they needed to exaggerate the  price to win your business.

Fortunately, for owners in this situation, there is that there is another way - selling directly to an owner, without an agent (sometimes referred to as FSBO, or For Sale By Owner). The difficult part is going through all of the advertising yourself and trying to weed through countless emails and phone calls to find the right buyer.

The great news is, since you found us you may have already bypassed the hardest parts. If you have a property that you tried to sell that is either listed with an agent and expiring soon, or the listing has already expired, we may be able to buy your property at a price and terms that work for you. We get calls from owners in this situation several times a week and it is by far the most common situation we face.

We buy properties directly from owners and if a property fits our buying criteria we can have a fair offer for consideration on the same day we receive a call. Since we are direct buyers, owners benefit from bypassing all of the hassles of a typical sale don’t have to pay any commissions or fees. On most transactions, we will even pay all of the closing costs.

We buy properties in as-is condition - owners do not need to do any cleaning or fixing. We have worked with owners in a countless number of situations (vacant, tenant occupied, structural problems, etc.) and we almost always find a win/win solution. We can close on the day of an owner’s choice and if there are other needs,  we are flexible and will do what I can to help. All of our transactions take place with nationally recognized escrow and title companies to ensure a smooth transaction.

You may be thinking about selling a property, but might not be quite ready for any number of reasons. We understand. We are always available to discuss your circumstances and answer questions.  We have dealt with many owners that were likely in the same or similar situations to yours and we can use our experience to help brainstorm options that you may not know exist.

"Two back to back failed listings was enough reason for us to look at other options. We heard about Blake Buys Homes from a friend and all I can say is, I am glad we never settled. The offers we received were only slightly higher than what Blake Buys Homes could offer but we didn't have to pay any real estate commissions or closing costs. I think we had an offer signed four days after we called. Thank you!!"
