Selling To Midwest Fix-and-Flip vs. Listing With A Realtor
Even in a sellers market, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals when selling your house. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” price by listing with a local agent, that doesn’t always mean more money in your pocket, less time on the market, or even less hassle and headache. Dive into the details below to compare your home selling options.

Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You The Most…
When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your house can offer.
No, Midwest Fix-and-Flip won’t be able to offer you the full retail price of your house. But, we can offer other benefits that make going the traditional home selling route much less attractive… for instance:
1. From offer to close and cash in your hand can be as fast as 7 days, if necessary!
You can get rid of the headache of your unwanted property fast, and avoid paying any more utility bills, property taxes, insurance premiums, mortgage payments, lawn care, snow removal services, and other “holding costs”. You get the idea. If you list your house, and have to wait 90 or more days before you close… you’ll have to figure in all those additional expenses, in addition to your realtor’s fee which will ultimately reduce the price you get for the house!
2. Don’t worry about fixing things or cleaning your house to show it over and over, buyer after buyer!
We don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!), or how many repairs are needed. Yours is a complete fixer-upper? That’s great! We love projects! And, we’d like to make you an offer on your house. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket.
3. Don’t worry about paying those pesky closing fees either. We’ve got you covered!
Because we’re a full-service professional home buyer here in Northwest Ohio and Southeastern Michigan, we make it easy for you. We pay all the closing costs. Our purchase offer is what you get (minus any mortgage payoffs, liens or other encumbrances on the property). Pretty refreshing, right?
So, when you add up the time you save by working with Midwest Fix-and-Flip, and our no-hassle home selling experience, plus the money you’ll save on broker’s commissions, fees and holding costs while waiting to sell your house the traditional way… many area home owners would rather sell to a professional house buyer like us. For them, that’s the best approach! Could you be one of them too?

* Note: a contingency in the purchase offer allows time for the Buyers to have inspections performed by qualified experts, and to change their mind about the offer, if they choose. They can also attempt to renegotiate with the Seller, and offer a new lower price, if items in need of repair are discovered. However, if the Buyer and Seller can’t come to a mutual agreement about lowering the price due to these previously undisclosed repairs, the Buyer has the right to “rescind” (back out of) their offer. Similarly, a contingency dependent on financing gives the buyer wiggle room to back out of the purchase agreement if they can’t obtain suitable financing; i.e, if they have insufficient credit to obtain the loan, or if the home doesn’t appraise high enough to satisfy the bank’s desired “LTV” (loan-to-value) ratio which they need to secure the loan using the value of the house as collateral.
Here at Midwest Fix-and-Flip, we’re flexible with needed repairs. And, we don’t use bank financing. So, you don’t have to worry about our inability to close due to either of those issues!
