Don’t Pay Closing Costs or Fees
One of the first things you should know about selling your house to Zillow is that you will have to pay a service charge that consists of two parts: selling fees and closing costs. The rate at which they’ll charge you (5% of the sale price for selling fees and 1-2% of the selling price for closing costs) is almost identical to what you’d be charged if you were to sell your house on the traditional market. One of the benefits of selling your house for cash is not having to pay all of the commissions, closing costs, and seller’s fees that come with the traditional real estate process, and that benefit doesn’t apply for homeowners who work with Zillow.
At PlacePitch, we won’t charge you anything: no commissions, closing costs, or seller’s fees. The offer you get from us is the payment you get at the end of the process, plain and simple.
One Day is All It Takes
When we say “the process,” we don’t mean something that’s long drawn out or difficult. Our cash sales are designed to be quick and easy, and we can get them done in whatever timeline works best for you – even if that timeline is as little as one business day. You set the tone for how long your process will take; our team is flexible and experienced, and we’ll do everything we can do to accommodate your time constraints, whatever they may be.
Three Steps to Closing
How can we be so accommodating? Because we’ve streamlined our process into three easy steps that work for home sellers. Each part of our process is designed to be as easy as possible for you; it’s why we do all the work after step one. First off, just fill out a quick form on our website (by quick, we mean two minutes!) and request your offer. Once that’s done, we’ll reveal your info and get back to you as quickly as possible (within one day). From there, we’ll set up a stress-free tour of the property. This isn’t something that a lot of cash buyers do, but we think it’s essential. Seeing the property in person means we can make sure we have the most accurate view of it possible, which enables us to give you the best offer we can according to real-time market data. Don’t worry: you don’t have to do anything. No repairs, staging, or clean-ups are required; we want to see the property exactly as it is. Finally, once we’ve seen the property, we’ll crunch some numbers and get back to you with your cash offer. The offer you get from us is the payment you’ll walk away with: no hidden fees, no commissions, and no closing costs. Once you get your offer, all that’s left to do is accept it, sign, and get paid.
