Selling To 2nd Option Properties vs. Listing With A Local SC Agent

Even in a sellers market like SC, it’s smart to look at all your options when trying to find the best way to get the most out of selling your house. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local North Charleston agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. Dive into the details below to compare your options.

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

Weigh your options.

When you start to weigh both options, you can understand the benefits of selling your SC house with either method.

Yes, here at 2nd Option Properties we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we also offer other benefits that going the traditional house sale route can’t offer.


From offer to close and cash in your hand in as little as 14 days

We can relieve you from the burden 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.

Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer

How clean your house is doesn’t concern us, (we’ve seen worse!).  Whether it needs minor repairs or a complete renovation doesn’t concern us either, (we love fixer upper projects). What concern us is listening to your situation and making you a fair cash offer on your house.  This not only saves you time, but it puts cash in your pocket quicker to get you on your way!

Don’t worry about paying those pesky closing fees (we’ve got you covered)

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in SC, we don’t make a stressful situation worst. 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 2nd Option Properties , it starts to make sense.  There are no fees, no commission, no-hassle and no playing the waiting game for months like when selling the traditional route.  This is the best viable option for property owners, depending on their circumstances.
