The Hidden Cost of Selling a Home Traditionally


Selling a home, the traditional way may seem like the most viable option. However, this path is often associated with hidden costs that can diminish your profits and extend the process. Let's shed some light on these costs, and introduce you to a faster, easier, and more beneficial alternative with WCC Properties.

Firstly, real estate agent commissions can substantially erode your profit. This fee, often around 5-6% of the sale price, is split between the buyer's and seller's agents. For a $300,000 home, that's $15,000-$18,000 less in your pocket.

Then, there are closing costs. These include title insurance, escrow fees, and prorated property taxes, typically costing a seller between 2-4% of the sale price.

Pre-sale home inspections can reveal necessary repairs. Traditional buyers expect these issues to be fixed before purchase, another outlay from your profit. Moreover, staging and marketing the home to attract potential buyers can also add up.

In contrast, selling your home to WCC Properties eliminates these hidden costs. We buy homes as-is for cash, saving you from expensive repairs, staging, and marketing expenses. There's no need for a real estate agent, so you can bypass those hefty commissions. We also cover all closing costs.
