Is it your intention to sell a house in Atlanta, the [market zipcode] zipcode, or anywhere else in the state of Georgia? “Would an investor buy my house in Atlanta for a price close to its asking price?” you might wonder. This blog post will provide an answer to that question. To find out the answer, please continue reading…
Selling your home can be accomplished through a variety of means, including the following:
- Putting it on the market and working with an agent to try to find a buyer is one way of selling it on the open market (or trying to find a buyer yourself).
- You can avoid the “sell on the market” process entirely by working with a buyer directly (such as what we do here at Georgia Fair Offer), who will be able to offer you a price for your property.
You might wonder, “Would an investor be interested in buying my house in Atlanta for close to the asking price?”

The Reasons Why Investors Invest
Investment in real estate is made with the expectation of purchasing at a lower price and selling at a higher price or renting out the property. As a result, investors are motivated to find houses that are priced affordably for them to purchase, as opposed to renting.
Before you set your asking price, consider the advantages of having an investor on your side…
Recognizing the Value of the Asking Price
Would an investor be interested in purchasing my home at my asking price?
The asking price you set serves as a starting point for the negotiation process. Your asking price will serve as the starting point for any negotiations, even if you sell to someone who comes to you through a real estate agent. The buyer will almost always try to negotiate a lower price than your asking price.
Here’s what most people don’t realize: the asking price includes a number of other factors, such as the assumption that you have repaired and cleaned up your property so that it is in pristine condition and ready to be shown to potential buyers. And don’t forget that you’ll be responsible for paying your bills, insurance, and taxes on your property throughout the entire time an agent is attempting to find a buyer (which can take months). Afterwards, you’ll be required to pay the agent a commission, which could be in the thousands of dollars.
As a result, your asking price already includes all of these considerations.
An investor does not bother with any of this.
You can actually avoid all of this if you work with a financial investor. Due to the fact that you will not be required to fix or clean your home, you will save thousands of dollars. In addition, because you won’t have to pay bills, taxes, and insurance for months while you wait for a buyer to be found, you’ll save thousands of dollars in that department. Furthermore, because no agent was used, you will not be required to pay a commission, allowing you to save thousands of dollars.
Taken together, selling TO an investor rather than through an agent results in a savings of thousands of dollars in commissions.
Selling to an investor allows you to sell more quickly while also avoiding all of the expenses. As a result, an investor may be unable to purchase a home at or near the price you have set for it. You may provide them with a discount, but it is money that you will not receive in the meantime, as you wait months and “gamble” to sell your house on the open market.
