“Why Not Go With A Realtor?”

You might be asking this question, and it’s a good question! Because, Yes, it’s true: The Chicago housing market is still a seller’s market and updated houses are selling relatively fast.


Listing with a real estate agent works best if you have a property in perfect condition and can afford to wait for the right buyer.

The downside of a traditional sale like that is having to deal with the fees, time, and inconvenience of putting your home on the market. You’ll be expected to spend money to fix what’s broken and update what’s outdated. You might be asked to stage your home and get it ready for open houses or for scheduling multiple showings day and night. You’ll have to disrupt your life for strangers to come through your home. Then, hidden issues with plumbing, electrical, or who-knows-what often pop up during the inspection period, which can derail any sale. The process can be lengthy (not to mention exhausting) and closing can take months. 

Selling To Olson Home Buyers vs. Listing With A Local Real Estate Agent

We'll buy any house in Chicago, IL - Give us a call now!

Traditional home sales are demanding and take a toll on your mental health. When you consider the agent’s fees and items the buyer is requesting you fix, the actual amount you get in your pocket is almost never the price you’re selling for.

Is there a solution to skip the uncertainty and lengthy process of a traditional home sale? Yes, there is! Sell directly to Olson Home Buyers. We buy houses directly from Chicago homeowners for a fair cash price. Sell your house fast and without having to pay an agent’s commission.

When we buy your house with our local Cash Home Buyer program…

  • We’ll clean the house – You never have to worry about cleaning it up for daily showings and open houses.
  • Sell as-is – Does your house needs repairs you don’t want to make? Great! We’ll do the repairs for you.
  • No commissions (and we’ll pay closing costs!) – We don’t charge commissions. Our profit comes from fixing up your house and going through the hassle to sell it ourselves.
  • Fully confidential and private – Avoid having to share your information with agents, dozens of buyers, and the world on the MLS. Our process is fully private and discreet.

We’ll know very quickly if we can help and, unlike selling through an agent, you don’t have to wait to see if the buyer can get financing – we’re ready to buy right now!

The Traditional Way

Listing Your House With An Agent

The amount of time, money, and stress involved with listing your house adds up.

  1. The months it takes to sell add up
    Your home is costing you money the entire time it sits on the market. Some people just can’t wait 90 days to sell their house.
  2. Plenty of showings and disruption to your life
    Not only do you have to get your house ready to show, but the number of showings can provide a serious disruption to your life.
  3. It takes forever to close
    It takes anywhere from 30 to 60 days to close after accepting a buyer’s offer. That’s assuming that their financing doesn’t fall through…
  4. 1-2% in closing costs paid by you, the seller
    On average, a seller is responsible for up to 2% of the sales price in the form of closing costs.
  5. Fees and commissions stack up
    In addition to closing costs, commissions and fees stack up and reduce how much goes in your pocket at close. On average, 6% in commissions/fees are paid by a seller.
  6. You could be on the hook for repairs
    Depending on what hidden trouble shows up during the inspection period, you could be on the hook for repairs that you didn’t know you needed.

Choose The Right Option For You

There are three options when selling a house or property in Chicago IL:

  1. OPTION 1List your house on the market with a real estate agent. From listing to cash in hand is usually 45 to 90+ days, plus you must deal with the hassles of open houses, commissions, and financing falling through at the last minute.
  2. OPTION 2Sell the house yourself (FSBO). You’re doing all the work an agent would to save a bit of money, but it costs you too much time and stress.
  3. OPTION 3Sell for cash to Olson Home Buyers. Avoid the hassles of listing on the market, pick your closing date, and don’t bother with cleaning up or repairs. There is no obligation to see our offer, and we LOVE the most difficult situations agents or other investors won’t touch.
