Selling To Red Otter Properties vs. Listing With A Local NC Agent
We will never take the stance that you shouldn’t consider using a real estate agent. There is a time and place to consider working with one, but whenever a homeowner is in a position that they need to sell their house quickly and hassle free, rarely is an agent the route to go. It is situations like what was just mentioned, where Red Otter Properties comes in to provide tailored solutions for the seller. Through us, there are no listing fees, no agent commissions, a quick, hassle-free closing process, and plenty of other reasons to work with us (as seen below). Getting rid of the headache and hassle of dealing with an unwanted property is our service to you.
Here is just a brief comparison of your options between us and a real estate agent:

Sell your house to Red Otter Properties
We’ll make you a fair cash offer so you can sell without the hassles and stress of listing.
- Competitive and quick cash offer
Tell us about your house, then we’ll carefully evaluate it with local market expertise and provide you a fair, no-obligation offer quick.
- No Showings – No Hassles
We buy your house “as-is,” so there are no open houses, no weekend showings, and no need to fix it up first.
- You choose your closing day
Once we make an offer, we are able to close in days, not months. You pick the date that is best for you.
- We pay ALL closing costs
Closing costs can add up, which is why we cover them for you. Absolutely zero extra costs or hidden fees.
- Zero fees. Zero commissions
Since we’re buying your house, we charge no fees and no commissions. The sales price is the amount that goes into your pocket.
- We’ll cover any repairs
Does your house need repairs? We’ll handle them for you. You can even leave behind unwanted items and we’ll haul them off – no extra charge.
Real Estate Agent
- The months it takes to sell add up
Your home is costing you money the whole time it sits on the market. Some people just can’t wait 90 days to sell their house.
- Plenty of showings and disruption to your life
Not only do you have to get your house ready to show, but the number of showings can provide a serious disruption to your life.
- It takes forever to close
It takes anywhere from 30-60 days to close after accepting a buyer’s offer – that’s assuming that their financing doesn’t fall through…
- 1-2% in closing costs paid by you, the seller
On average, a seller is responsible for up to 2% of the sales price in the form of closing costs.
- Fees and commissions stack up
In addition to closing costs, commissions and fees stack up and reduce how much goes in your pocket. On average, 6% in commissions/fees are paid by a seller.
- You could be on the hook for repairs
Depending on what pops under during the inspection period, you could be on the hook for repairs that you didn’t know you needed.
Selling To Red Otter Properties vs With A Local Real Estate Agent
What’s the solution to skip the uncertainty and lengthy process? Sell directly to Red Otter Properties – we buy houses directly from homeowners. Sell your house fast without the hassle of waiting for buyers or the cost of commissions.
Listing with an agent works great if you have a property in perfect condition and can afford to wait for the right buyer. The Raleigh housing market is hot and pretty houses are selling fast on the market. However, we can help you avoid the hassles of a traditional sale. Traditional buyers may have their financing fall through, having dozens of people walk through your house in an open house, worrying about inspections, all can add stress and months to the process. When you take the agent’s fees and items the buyer is requesting you fix into account, the actual amount you get in your pocket is almost never the price you’re selling for.
When we buy your house…
- We’ll clean the house – You don’t need to clean up and repair the property.
- Sell as-is – Your house needs repairs you don’t want to make? Great! We’ll do the repairs for you.
- No commissions (and we’ll pay closing costs!) – We don’t charge commissions. Our profit comes from fixing up your house and going through the hassles ourselves to sell it.
- Fully confidential and private – Avoid having to share your information with the world on the MLS, with agents and dozens of buyers. Our process is fully private and discreet.
We’ll know very quickly if we can help you, and unlike selling through an agent, you don’t have to wait to see if the buyer can get financing… we’re ready to buy right now!
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 NC house offers.
Yes, here at Red Otter Properties 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 NC, 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 Red Otter Properties, 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.

*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 Red Otter Properties, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
