Agent Fees

Real estate agents are in the business of sales.  They work to help present your home so you can get a buyer.  They use various tools and marketing strategies to make this happen.

Agents take a fee for their work, it is a commission that generally the seller has to pay on both the seller and buyer.  This is generally around 6% for each agent in the transaction.  They also may charge you for other marketing costs to help sell your home in Arlington.  Some agents charge fees for listing or for the sign in your yard.  The fees can also include work with the title company and so on.

Investor Fees

What surprises most individuals when they prep to sell their house in Arlington and review all the options…is that when you work with investors…there are rarely any fees.  The investor that you choose to work for will generally handle all the closing costs and there are no real estate commissions because you are selling off-market.
