Hiring an Austin and San Antonio Agent vs. A Direct Sale to VW Properties, LLC
When selling your house in Austin and San Antonio, it is important to explore all of your options. What works for one person, might not work for someone else. What will work for YOUR situation? We compare two of the more popular choices below.
|Hiring an Agent||SOLD To VW Properties, LLC|
|Commission Costs:||Be prepared to pay about 6% of the final sale price to your agent||$0 – We don’t charge a commission.|
|Who Pays Closing Costs?:||The seller should expect to pay about 2% of the final sale price at the closing table||$0 – We take care of the closing costs.|
|Inspection & Financing Contingency*:||Yes, no sale is guaranteed… up to 15% fall through||We have funds available immediately. You will not be at the mercy of our lender.|
|Will I Get Full Retail Value For My Home:||An agent can list your house for any price you wish. But there are no guarantees you will get it.||We pay less than retail, however, once you factor in all the ways you save, the price difference can become negligible.|
|Average Days Until Sold:||Roughly two to three months, plus additional time needed by the lender||Just a few days|
|Number of Showings:||Unknown||Only 1 (Us)|
|Who Pays For Repairs?:||Negotiated between the buyer and seller after the inspection||We do. Our offers are “as-is.”|
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 VW Properties, LLC 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 as little as 7 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, you get the drill. 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 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). Pretty refreshing eh?
So when you add up the time you could save by working with VW Properties, LLC, 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 a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similar, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room 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.
Here at VW Properties, LLC we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
