Aside from avoiding the ordeal of getting your house listed on the market as “for sale by owner” you’ll save quite a bit of money with a direct sale in Texas due to the following:
No Upgrades or Repairs
Most homebuyers require an appraisal and a home inspection before closing on the property. This means that many sellers end up investing thousands for repairs on a home before they can sell it. To pass the inspection, you may end up with huge repair bills for issues you had no idea even existed. Experienced Realtors realize that a lot of homebuyers can’t visualize a home’s true potential because they’re more focused on things they consider outdated. You may even feel pressured to upgrade your cabinets, countertops, floors, and bathrooms. At the very least you will be expected to repaint the interior and exterior.
Just Pack Up & Leave
When you hire a Realtor, they will expect your home to be spotless and clutter-free before they will show it to prospective buyers. They understand that homebuyers can’t see beyond the flaws in your décor, much less the clutter. You will have to remove all personal items, including any photographs or memorabilia. Many Realtors want sellers to put their furnishings in storage and pay to have the home staged. This is to enhance the photographs used in marketing the home, as well as for showings.
You’ll also be expected to enhance the curb appeal, for the same reasons. This could add a substantial expense in terms of landscaping. All of this is in an effort to entice buyers and help them picture themselves living in your house. Think of how much money you could save by avoiding all of this. You wouldn’t even have to clean your Texas home if you opted for a direct sale. The buyer may even be fine with you leaving items you no longer want behind.
No Closing Costs
It will cost you a lot less to sell your home directly in Texas when you are able to avoid most of the typical fees charged in a traditional closing. In addition, you’ll also avoid the fees that home inspectors and appraisers charge, especially on newer homes or those with more recent renovations.
No Advertising & Marketing Expenses
Whether you decide to work with a Realtor or sell your property yourself, you’ll have to pay for advertising and marketing. This can get expensive, especially when you consider the cost of professional interior and exterior photos and videos. To ensure that these are all picture perfect, you will likely need to pay for staging.
No More Monthly Bills
The monthly expenditures that come with owning a home can cause financial stress, especially if you’ve already relocated for a new job or other reasons. It doesn’t take long for these costs to add up to many thousands of dollars when you consider the mortgage, utilities, insurance, taxes and upkeep. If this is an older home, repair bills will continue to accumulate, and these can get expensive. All of this can cause substantial personal stress. When you opt for a direct sale, you avoid all of these expenses and save thousands of dollars in the process.
Just pack up the belongings you want to take with you and opt for a direct sale in Texas. Leave all those monthly expenses behind and the stress that goes along with homeownership.

Hi, I’m Becky, with Texas Direct Home Buyers.
I want to talk to you today about a few ways a direct sale can save you money. I’m a realtor and need to tell you that to get the most money, usually, but not always, that means listing with a real estate agent and spending two to three months waiting for a retail buyer. Some people can do that without a realtor, but that’s tough.
Today I’m talking to you not as a realtor but as an investor, and a home buyer. We are DIRECT home buyers, meaning, while a real estate agent will sign a contract with you to TRY to sell your house. We actually will BUY the house from you. If you sell your house direct, to Texas Direct Home Buyers, these are five ways you can save money.
First, you do not have to do any upgrades or repairs. You don’t have to worry if the house is, what we call, “market-ready”.
Next, all you have to do is just pack up and leave. You don’t have to worry about taking care of the house. Instead, you take care of yourself and your move.
Third, if you sold with a realtor, you would be paying for the realtor commissions and some of the closing costs. With Texas Direct, there are no commissions or closing costs.
Then, since you’re not having to prepare your house to sell on the open market, you have no advertising and marketing expenses.
And finally, there are no more monthly bills tied to the house. Some people forget about these monthly costs when they’re trying to sell with a realtor, and it adds up at a time you are usually spending money looking for your next house.
With Texas Direct, those bills go away as soon as we purchase the house. And we always work on your schedule.
So that’s five ways you can save money by selling your house direct, to Texas Direct Home Buyers! Thanks for looking at our blog. We have lots of information elsewhere on our website.
Check it out! Thanks!
