Compare Selling Your House To Houston Westside Home Buyers vs. Listing With A Local Agent
Even in a sellers market like Houston, it’s smart to look at 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 Houston agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache.

Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You Get There…
When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your Texas house offers.
Yes, here at Houston Westside Home Buyers we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we also offer other benefits that going the traditional house sale route can’t offer.
From offer to close and cash in your hand in only 21 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, accruing more HOA fines and city code violations, and on and on… it all adds up, as you already know. 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.
Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer
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 fair fast 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 Texas, 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). There is no need to pay commissions to two real estate agents, as we will set up closing a reputable local title company here in Houston.
So when you add up the time you could save by working with Houston Westside Home Buyers, 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 home owners selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option.

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate seller contributions if there are repairs that need to be done. Usually these inspections are critical for the purposes of securing traditional mortgage financing. We also use an option period, in order to confirm the scope of repairs and confirm our original project estimates, but in our case it has no bearing on financing or our ability to complete the transaction. Similarly, a financing contingency is a standard practice that allows a buyer 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, and this is a common occurrence, particularly with the houses that we normally purchase.
Here at Houston Westside Home Buyers we don’t use traditional bank financing so we don’t have to worry about standard mortgage lending requirements.
