Hiring An Agent vs. A Direct Sale To AS Properties LLC
It is important for us to let people know that there are many ways to sell a house. For some people, a listing is a great choice, whereas, for many others, a direct sale can actually put the most amount of money in a sellers pocket in the least amount of time. Every property and situation are different, which is why we encourage sellers to compare their options before committing to an agent. Below, we compare some general numbers regarding two popular selling methods. For an analysis of how these methods will impact you personally, reach out to us at any time! (831) 975-2182

|Commissions / Fees:||Commissions will cost the seller upwards of 4-6% of the final sale price. Plus any additional agent fees.||There are no commissions or fees.|

|Inspection & Financing Contingency*:||This is required by lenders to ensure a property appraises high enough. Because of this, about 15% of traditional sales fall through||Not included in our offer.|
|Appraisal Needed:||Yes. Your buyer’s lender will require a full inspection and appraisal.||Not required. We buy as-is.|
|Average Days Until Sold:||51-120 days on average depending on where you live.||We will make an offer as soon as we view the house in person.|
|Number of Showings:||Unknown – but you must always keep the house prepared for last minute showings.||Just us.|

How Do The Numbers Add Up For You?
These numbers will be slightly different depending on your property or situation. When you list, there is no way of knowing when the house will sell or how much you will receive. While the listing price may be higher than our offer price, after you consider all of the time and money a direct sale can save you, the numbers might prove a direct sale to be the better choice.
There are many other benefits to consider as well…
A Fast Closing Can Save You Thousands
Ask any real estate investor and they will tell you that the longer you own a property, the more it costs you. Owning a house can be expensive… between the mortgage, taxes, insurance, utilities, and maintenance costs, owning a house you don’t want can get expensive fast. A traditional sale can take months, but a direct sale to AS Properties LLC can be completed in just a few days.
Avoid The Inconvenience of Cleaning and Property Showings
When your house is listed, you will (hopefully) have many interested parties, all of whom will want to see your house. This means everyone will have to work together to keep the property clean and will be able to leave the property when people want to come to see it. This can be an inconvenient part of the process.
Sell Your House Without Commissions or Fees
If an agent does sell your house, you’ll need to pay out the commission when the house closes. This can be upward of 6% of your final sale price. You’ll also be subject to closing costs and miscellaneous agent fees, all of which can be avoided when you sell your house directly to AS Properties LLC.

*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 AS Properties LLC, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
