Selling To Fair Home Offers vs. Alternative Options

Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You The Most…

When you really analyze the numbers,  you will see the benefits that each way of selling offers.

From Offer To Close In Days

You can sell your property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, and so on. If you list your house and potentially wait 90+ days to close, you need to factor in all of the holding costs while waiting to find a buyer and close.

Don’t worry about fixing anything 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.

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in Florida, we make it easy for you. We pay for all of the closing costs. What we offer you is what you get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property).

So when you add up the time you could save by working with Fair Home Offers, 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 home owners selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option.
