Selling to Calgary Home Sale vs. Listing on the Alberta MLS
Especially in a market like Alberta, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. The Calgary Home Sale team is different from traditional real estate agents and house buyers because we are actually both! Because we are real estate investors and licensed, reputable agents, we can offer more options to help you reach your goals when selling your Calgary house. Dive into the details below to compare your options. See how we offer you the best of both cash investors and agents.
|Selling w/ An Agent||Selling To An Investor||SOLD To Calgary Home Sale|
|Sale Price||top dollar (minus fees) for homes in good condition||An offer that allows to re-sell at a profit. Investor may offer a price just to see how low you will accept||Top Dollar if you have time to list on MLS, or if it can be held as an investor rental; An offer minus fees, repairs and holding costs if you need cash quickly|
|Commissions / Fees:||usually 7% on the 1st $100k and 3% on the balance is paid by you, the seller (some brokers will offer lower rates or flat fees)||None||negotiable fee if we list your home; NO fees/commissions if you sell directly to us for cash|

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 Calgary house offers.
The Choice Is Entirely Yours
If you can wait 60-90 days to get your cash, let us show you how to get the most money for your Calgary home. If time is of the essence and you need to sell your house now we will either present you an offer directly, or get you an offer from one of our many investors. A Calgary Home Sale offer won’t be 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 idea. 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, licensed team here in Alberta, 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 right?
So when you add up the time you could save by working with the Calgary Home Sale team, the no-hassle experience, and holding costs while you wait to sell the traditional route… for many area home owners it makes sense to look at the cash offer 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.
Calgary Home Sale offers don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
