Real Estate Agency Raleigh
Selling To Kev Buys Houses Vs. Listing With A Local North Carolina Agent
Even in a seller’s market like North Carolina, it’s smart to compare your options and determine what is the best approach moving forward. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local Raleigh agent, we’ve found that many property owners are disappointed with the bottom line they receive after such a long and exhausting process. Additionally, the traditional home selling process often leaves a lot to be desired. We work differently at Kev Buys Houses. We want to make the process easier for you and are here for you from start to finish – even if you ultimately decide not to sign with us. We have prepared this side-by-side comparison so you can truly compare your options.

Compare Your Options to See What’s Best
To summarize, when you list with an agent, you need to factor in all the costs you’ll need to pay out of pocket, including:
- Closing costs
- Appraisal fees
You also need to consider how much extra time and stress will go into this process, between showings, making renovations, dealing with picky buyers, and signing a contract that binds you to a realtor for a certain amount of time. When you compare your options, you might realize selling directly to us might be best for you.
Here at Kev Buys Houses we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we also offer other benefits that the traditional house sale route can’t offer.
From offer to close and cash in your hand in as little as 14 days
You can get rid of the headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, and so on. If you are financially distressed, a fast cash sale might be the fastest way to get money in your pockket. In contrast, if you list your house and wait 90+ days to close… you have to figure in all of the costs of holding that property during the time you have that property listed and are waiting for the property to close.
A personalized selling experience
At Kev Buys Houses, we won’t treat you like a number or just another sale. We’re not worried about commissions. We truly want what is best for you and will work to find the best solution for you, even if it means not working with us. We’ll be happy to refer you to someone who can help with your particular situation.
Skip stressful and annoying cleaning and repairs
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 that you can keep in your pocket.
Don’t worry about paying those pesky closing fees (we’ve got you covered)
Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in North Carolina, 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, you can compare your options to see how much you will really wind up with at the end of the sales process.
When you consider the time you could save by working with Kev Buys Houses, 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 area homeowners selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option.
