Getting Ready to Sell in the Triangle?
Have you heard of iBuyers? If you're thinking about listing your home, you might consider using one of these instant offer sites instead of working directly with an agent. iBuyers promise to make the listing process smooth, simple, and fast...but that isn't necessarily the case. Unfortunately, these tools are actually more misleading than you think—and going with a local real estate expert is almost always the better option.
Want to learn more about iBuyers? We're exposing some details you'll want to know if you're thinking about working with these sites. Here's everything you need to know before you get started!
The Drawbacks of iBuyers
You get less money
iBuying websites have one goal in mind: making a profit. This means that their offers are simply not competitive, and you could lose valuable equity that took years to build. In fact, you could miss out on tens of thousands in extra cash when you go with an iBuyer—the convenience isn't always worth it!
You'll pay tons of fees
So many sellers think they'll avoid paying a commission when they work with an iBuyer, but all those hidden expenses can actually cost you even more than you think. On average, iBuyers will charge anywhere from 7% – 13% in fees, which is significantly more than what you'll pay with an agent.
You won't get any personalized help
When you work with an iBuyer, you'll complete your transaction entirely through a screen. That means you won't get the personalized advice, guidance, and negotiation prowess that comes with working with a local agent. Why should you pay more for less than stellar service? You deserve more!
