Why would I sell my house for less than its full value?

Selling your home the traditional way (with an estate agent) will usually get you the highest price, but it can be uncertain, stressful, and drawn-out.

A home sale to Yes Homebuyers guarantees you speed, certainty, convenience, and peace of mind. And for some sellers the lower price is well worth it.

Detailed Answer:

The downsides of a traditional sale

Selling your home the traditional way with a local estate agent will almost always get you the best price. BUT, there are trade-offs:

  • Time - Selling this way tends to take a long time
  • Uncertainty - Unfortunately there can also be a lot of uncertainty, disappointment, and setbacks.

For most people these things are worth enduring to get the best price - but not for everyone.

A quicker, easier alternative

Some home sellers are happy and able to accept a lower price for their home if it means they get certainty, speed, and convenience.

Selling to Yes Homebuyers puts you in control of your sale - and that's why some people choose to sell their home to us for less than its full value. It's about service, certainty, speed, and peace-of-mind.
