Selling To SunnyNest Homes vs Listing With A Local California Realtor® or Real Estate Agent

God knows that the California market is scorching hot. It seems that day after day, home prices are hitting new ties.

However, even in a seller’s market like California, it’s smart to completely investigate all of your options and uncover the best strategy to help you 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 San Diego County real estate agent, that doesn’t necessarily equate to more money in your pocket or less headache. Sometimes, there are more creative options that will put more money into your pocket quicker and easier. Let’s dive into the details below to compare your options.

Work The Numbers And See Which Strategy Helps You Get Want You Want…

When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your California house offers.

If your house is completely fixed up, clear of liens and pre-foreclosure notices, and you have the time and energy to go through the trouble of selling your house, you might make more money going the traditional route.

And it’s true that here at SunnyNest Homes, we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… however, there are numerous benefits to choosing SunnyNest Homes that the traditional house sale route can’t offer.


In as little as 7 days, we can put cash in your hand.

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.

If I was to sell my house via the traditional route, all of those costs would add up to about $20,000. Now, if I had a company like SunnyNest Homes that I could sell my house to, I’d seriously consider it because I’ve seen numerous sellers opt for the traditional route to only walk away with a 1/2% more overall.

In my case, that would be about $7500 and I’d have to spend three months dealing with a Realtor®, leaving my house for days so that they can hold open houses, and then go through all of the paperwork. (BTW, if you do choose to go the traditional route, I highly recommend working with a Realtor® rather than a real estate agent or discount firm because they usually do a much better job and get more money than they cost.)

Unfortunately, if I were to sell my house, I’d probably have a hard time finding a company like SunnyNest Homes to work with because there aren’t too many creative financing companies like ours.

You won’t have to worry about fixing all of the problems small and large or cleaning your entire house again and again for buyer after buyer

The last time I moved was before I was in the real estate business and let’s just say that there is a “living” level of clean and a “selling” level of clean. The selling level of clean is much more difficult to attain and maintain. And back then I didn’t have the money for a cleaning crew to come in weekly.

So, I spent practically all of my free time cleaning my house for the open houses because you have to clean cracks and surfaces you’ve probably never cleaned. For example, in our bathroom we have a cute little drawing of a boy going fishing that says, “If God made the Earth 3/4 water, ain’t I expected to do more fishin’ than plowin’?”

Well, I definitely live by that rule. My house is clean but I don’t care about the really little things like the dust on top of that drawing’s frame. Honestly, I probably put that thing on the wall and then never dusted it in ten years.

But we don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse, trust us on that!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer? Great! We love projects)... we’d like to make an offer on your house. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket.

Don’t worry about having to pay those annoying closing fees (we’ve got you totally covered)

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in California, we know how to make it as easy as pie for you (who came up with that saying because I’ve never found baking a pie to be easy.) So, we pay for all of the closing costs. 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 SunnyNest Homes, the no-hassle experience, and the money you’ll save on commissions, fees, and holding costs vs. the hard work and time it takes to sell via 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. Similarly, 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 SunnyNest Homes, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
