Selling A House With or Without a Real Estate Agent in Fort Worth – What is right for You?
WITHOUT Agent VS. WITH
Even in a seller’s market like Texas, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house.
While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local Fort Worth agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket when all expenses are considered or even achieve your personal or real estate goals upon the sale of your house.
FSBO doesn’t mean you have to hassle with marketing your house yourself hoping to find a viable buyer who can deliver you the cash you need for your house. You can bypass all that time wasted and sell directly to the buyer. That’s where we, (Metroplex House Buyers, LLC) can help. Selling a house without a real estate agent might be for you!

Selling with an Agent vs. Selling to a House Buyer (Investor)…your bottom line may not really be that far apart…
When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your Fort Worth house offers.
Yes, here at Metroplex House Buyers, LLC we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we also offer other benefits that going the traditional house sale route can’t offer.
From ‘cash offer’ for your house to ‘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.
We can close in as little as 7 days. For some people that might even seem like an eternity. But, for a legitimate Title Company to review and guarantee the title, one should expect to allow a 7 day minimum timeframe.
If others promise less, well, perhaps if “all the stars in the sky align”, that might happen. We believe in Under Promise and Over Deliver. We don’t like promising something we might not be able to deliver. That technique might also be called ‘bait and switch’ to get you to work with another buyer who claims they can close in 3 days. However, we like to be more transparent in our business dealings! We trust you will appreciate that about working with us too!
Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer
We don’t care how messy your house might be (we’ve seen worse I am sure!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer-upper? great! we love projects)... regardless, we’d like to make a cash 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 Texas, we make it easy for you. We pay for all of the closing costs just for mentioning our website. 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 Metroplex House Buyers, LLC, 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 Metroplex House Buyers, LLC, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
