    This may sound like a crazy idea to invest money into your house if you’re going to sell it, but just hear me out for a second. Giving your house a new gloss of paint, replacing a few old doors or giving a room a mini makeover can be a smart way to sell your house fast.

    Very true quote from Fannie Mae, it can be better to hire an agent to sell your house. This is typically the case due to additional market exposure, BUT there are cases where seller’s actually benefit more by selling their house to a professional home buyer/investor….one being that money is not always the main reason that seller’s decide to sell their home, there are other motivating factors, some of which would make dealing with a lot of agents/buyers prohibitive for them.

    There are pros and cons for using an agent. If you are patient and want the absolute top dollar for your property, using an agent (in my experience) is definitely the way to go. If you need to sell quickly, have a large amount of repairs to do, etc. you may be better off selling to an investor.

    That’s definitely the wisest thing to do. Agents would know better than your average homeowner and would be able to fetch a bigger price for your home.
