Selling Directly To Onyx REI vs. Listing With A Local Virginia Real Estate Agent

In the bustling real estate markets of Virginia, sellers often gravitate towards the allure of top dollar listings through traditional real estate agents. While this approach may seem appealing, it’s crucial to consider all your options and weigh their true implications.

While a high sales price may grab your attention, it doesn’t always translate to more profit in your pocket or a smoother selling experience. Traditional sales often involve lengthy timelines, unpredictable buyer contingencies, and hefty commission fees that can significantly erode your final proceeds.

Time of year: Homes tend to have more showings during peak seasons, such as spring and early summer.

Who Pays For Repairs?In Virginia, the responsibility for paying for repairs on properties being sold on the MLS typically falls on the seller. However, there may be cases where the buyer agrees to pay for certain repairs, or where the costs are shared between the buyer and seller.

Here are some general guidelines for who pays for repairs on properties being sold on the MLS in Virginia:

Sellers are typically responsible for repairs that are necessary to make the property habitable. This includes repairs to major structural components, such as the roof, foundation, and walls. Sellers may also be responsible for repairs to plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems.

Buyers are typically responsible for repairs that are considered cosmetic or aesthetic. This includes things like painting, wallpapering, and flooring. Buyers may also be responsible for repairs to minor structural issues, such as cracks in the drywall or holes in the walls.

In some cases, the buyer and seller may agree to split the cost of repairs. This is often the case when the repairs are considered to be “as-is” or “where-is,” meaning that the seller is not obligated to make the repairs but is willing to do so if the buyer is willing to pay for half of the cost.

The specific terms of who pays for repairs will be spelled out in the purchase agreement. The purchase agreement is a legally binding contract that outlines the terms of the sale, including who is responsible for what.
We pay for all repairs.
*An inspection contingency allows the buyer to schedule a professional inspection of the property to identify any potential repairs or issues. If the inspection reveals significant problems, the buyer may negotiate with the seller to make the repairs or request a lower purchase price. If an agreement cannot be reached, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale without penalty.
A financing contingency is contingent upon the buyer’s ability to secure a mortgage loan. If the buyer cannot obtain financing for the agreed-upon purchase price, they may need to negotiate a lower price or seek alternative financing options. If a mutually agreeable solution cannot be found, the buyer has the right to cancel the contract.

Here at Onyx REI, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
