Sell Your Los Angeles House To The Shenbaum Group vs. Listing With A Real Estate Agent

Even in a seller’s market like Los Angeles, it makes sense to look at your options and see what will actually help you to best reach your goals whether it be to sell your Los Angeles house to us or list it with an agent.

What’s the Best Way to Sell Your Los Angeles House?

Look at the numbers side-by-side and see which way helps you get to your goal the WAY YOU Want to.

When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your Southern California house offers.

Yes, here at The Shenbaum Group, we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we also offer other benefits that going to the traditional house sale route can’t offer.

Such as…

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 paymentstax 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 for all of the showings, open houses, inspections, and appraisals

We don’t care how dirty your house is (we really don’t) or how many repairs are needed (is it 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 closing fees that can really add up (we pay for ALL of those)

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in Southern California, 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 The Shenbaum Group, 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 homeowners selling to a professional homebuyer is the best viable option.
