Selling Directly To Southern Sky Home Buyers vs. Listing With A Local Agent

Even in a seller’s market, it’s smart to look at your options to see how you can best reach your goals with the sale of your Knoxville house. While you might be able to get a higher sales price listing with one of our preferred local agent partners, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. Dive into the details below to compare your selling options. 

 Selling w/ A Knoxville AgentSOLD To Southern Sky Home Buyers
Commissions / Fees:Up to 6%, paid by you, the sellerNone
Who Pays Closing Costs?2% on average is paid by you, the sellerWe pay all costs.

Number of Showings:It Depends1 (Just Us)
Closing Date:30-60+/- days after accepting the buyer’s offerThe date of YOUR CHOICE.
Who Pays For Repairs?Negotiated during the inspection periodWe pay for all repairs.
*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 Southern Sky Home Buyers, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.

Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You Get There…

When you really crunch the numbers you will start to see the actual benefits that each method of selling your TN house offers.

You are right, here at Southern Sky Home Buyers we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house, but we offer numerous other benefits that the traditional house sale route cannot offer you.


From offer to close to cash-in-your-hand in as little as 7 days.

You can get rid of the burden of that property fast and avoid paying one more utility payment, tax payment, insurance payment, mortgage payment… 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 it listed and are waiting for the buyer to eventually close.

Don’t worry about fixing up anything or cleaning your house endlessly for each and every showing.

We don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete gut job? Perfect! We love projects and chances to make our neighborhoods look nicer). We want to make an offer on your house today. Let us save you valuable time and put more money back in your pocket.

No unsuspecting closing fees. We’ve got you covered!

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in TN, we make it easy for you. We pay for all of the closing costs. The number that we offer you is what you get to walk away with (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property). That’s a pretty excellent deal, wouldn’t you say?

So, when you add up all the time you could save by working with the professionals at Southern Sky Home Buyers, the no-hassle experience, and the money you’ll save on realtor commissions, fees, and holding costs while you wait to sell the traditional route, it’s clear why so many homeowners in Knoxville sell to a professional house buyer like Southern Sky Home Buyers
