Selling To NOLA Cash House Buyer vs. Listing With A Local Louisiana Agent
Is it better to sell with a realtor or to sell as the owner? It can vary depending on the situation and what your goals are. If your goal is to sell your house fast then selling direct to a cash house buyer will meet that objective faster. If time isn’t as important and you are able to hold open houses then listing with a realtor will help you get a higher price.
New Orleans is a sellers market at the moment so lots of people are opting to list their house For Sale by Owner (FSBO) to save on realtor fees and commissions. This will definitely save you money but it will cost you time and some extra strength so you need to decide what works best for you.
If your house needs a lot of repairs or hasn’t been updated for a decade or more then an investor is most likely going to be your buyer so you may want to consider selling direct to an investor.
As we said there is really no right or wrong answer and you may opt to sell with a realtor, list your house For Sale By Owner or sell direct to an investor like NOLA Cash House Buyer. See some of the comparisons below and feel free to chat to us about your options.

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 Louisiana house offers.
Yes, here at NOLA Cash House Buyer we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we also offer other benefits that 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 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 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 professional home buyer here in Louisiana, 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 NOLA Cash House Buyer, 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 house buyer is the best viable 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.
Here at NOLA Cash House Buyer, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
