Do you find yourself weighing the pros and cons of listing your house or property with a local realtor? Yes, you may have some tough decisions ahead of you, but selling your house successfully is the most important factor. While listing with a realtor may be the more traditional way to go, selling to GG Homes can save you a lot of time, money, and stress!

There are many differences between listing your home with a local realtor versus selling your home to GG Homes. In fact, one of the major differences, is that our estimates show that homeowners can save an average of $6,000 – $10,000 in realtor fees alone when selling to us. That alone, is a lot to consider when selling your home.

How do you know whether to list your house with a local realtor or not? Well, we’ve put together a simple list on what to expect in both situations.
