Sometimes you just need to sell your house fast. If you find yourself pressed for time and wondering “how long does it take to sell my house with an agent vs an investor?” then this blog post will give you some valuable information…

So you want to sell your house fast? Chances are, you came across this blog post because you’re searching for the best solution for your particular situation. 

Before we get to the answer, it’s important to understand the difference between what an agent does and what an investor does:

When you sell your house with an agent, you are asking the agent to “represent” you in a sale. The agent is supposed to try and find a buyer for you, on your behalf. 

When you sell your house to an investor, you are actually working directly with the one who will be buying the house. In other words, you are eliminating the middle man. 

Ok, so now you should understand difference, here’s how long it can take…

How Long Does It Take To Sell My House With An Agent Vs An Investor?

The Agent…

An agent needs to show your house to prospective buyers in hopes that they like it well enough to make an offer. They will want your house to be in pristine condition to attract as many potential buyers as possible. 

It can take months for you to fix up your house before an agent feels that it’s ready to list. And once the agent lists the property it can take months for the agent to find the buyer. A lot depends on how well the agent markets the property. Then once a buyer comes along they usually go thru an inspection followed by more repairs. All the while the buyer has the financing process to deal with.. And what people don’t realize is: if the buyer can’t get financing or gets cold feet along the way then they can back out and you go through the process again.

With all this taken into consideration it can take months to sell your house through an agent – it all depends on how quickly you can get your house in “move in ready condition” and how quickly they can find a buyer and how long it takes the buyer to get financing and whether or not the buyer gets cold feet along the way.
