A traditional property listing isn’t the only way to sell your house in Alaska, nor is it necessarily the best option for you. As the population pushes away from larger cities, people are opting for the benefits of more permanent housing with recreational amenities and a more home-based lifestyle driving the current seller’s market. Off-market or pocket listings aren’t marketed to the general public which adds the allure of grabbing an exclusive opportunity and tends to garner a higher sales price.
When you sell off-market, you get to control who knows your home is for sale and when they see it. There are far fewer showings by the very nature of being private, and the buyers who know about the off-market listing are likely to be much more serious about the property. Listing your property off-market also tends to create an act now or never feeling.
We will share the inside scoop on how you can sell an off-market property listing in Alaska.
Real estate agents love off-market listings because they can market the property exclusively to select clients and collect whatever commission you have negotiated in the contract. Additionally, because other agents in the Alaska market are unaware of the listing, they don’t have to split the commission with anyone else. They will earn the other side of the commission because they are bringing the buyer. You can avoid commissions altogether when you sell an off-market property listing in to professional buyers like us, here at Anchorage Home Buyers.
Prepping or Repairs
Most buyers seek to move into their new homes as soon as possible. If your home is older or maintenance and repairs are lacking, you as the seller must worry about passing the inspection and making repairs out of pocket before closing or taking a deep discount off of the asking price. Preparing the home for the showings ahead and making updates is costly. When you sell an off-market property listing in Alaska through a direct sale with Anchorage Home Buyers, we buy homes as-is, so there is no more need to worry about repairs or even cleaning up. We take on all the risk.
Many agents also charge a fee for transaction processing and other expenses that agents may hide. When you sell your off-market property listing in Alaska to Anchorage Home Buyers, you don’t have to worry about paying agent fees – we don’t charge them. There will be no hidden fees to pay at closing and the offer will clearly outline how much cash you’ll receive at the closing.
When properties are listed traditionally through the MLS, potential buyers can track the number of days the property is on the market. A great many days passing indicates to buyers that something is wrong with the property that the listing doesn’t disclose, typically resulting in bargain-basement offers if any. The number of days an off-market property has been for sale is unknown to the buyer, which is one of the motivating factors behind off-market listings. Instead, sell fast to Anchorage Home Buyers, and closing on your private listing can be in a matter of days or whenever best suits your needs.
