Selling To Blue Ladder Development vs. Listing With A Local IL Agent

Even in a sellers market like IL, it’s smart to look at all 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 Chicago agent, that doesn’t always mean more money in your pocket but it does always mean more headache. Take a look at the details below to see how selling to cash home buyer company like Blue Ladder Development compares. 

Selling w/ An Agent SOLD To Blue Ladder Development
Commissions / Fees: 6% is paid by you, the seller NONE
Who Pays Closing Costs?: 3% is paid by you, the seller NONE – We pay all costs
Inspection & Financing Contingency*: Yes, up to 15% of sales fall through NONE
Appraisal Needed: Yes, sale is often subject to appraisal NONE – We make cash offers
Average Days Until Sold: +/- 159 Days IMMEDIATE CASH OFFER
Number of Showings: It Depends 1 (Just Us)
Closing Date: 30-60 +/- days after accepting buyers offer The Date Of YOUR CHOICE
Who Pays For Repairs?: Negotiated During Inspection Period NONE – We pay for all repairs

Compare the numbers versus the headaches to decide what suits you best.

When you take the time to put together the actual costs of selling your home in Chicago you’ll find that the money in your pocket is considerably less than the price you sell the property for.

The number you receive after all transaction costs is your net proceeds. Of course, we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house but in many cases will be close to the net proceeds number you would have received after selling with a real estate agent.

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

Yet you’ll get all of the benefits that come along with selling your home to home buying company.


Closing in as little a 7 days

What you don’t see listed in the table above is the ongoing carrying costs like mortgage, insurance, utilities, maintenance, and property taxes that cost you every month you hold the property. Get the relief of a quick 7-day closing date and avoid the expensive monthly carrying costs. Take comfort knowing that your is sold when give you an offer and avoid the unnecessary stress of letting your property sit on the market for months (sometimes years) waiting to find a buyer.

*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 Blue Ladder Development we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
