How It Works

There are 2 basic ways to sell a house:

1) listing it through a broker

2) selling it directly to a buyer like us.

There is no “right way”—it depends on your situation. Each approach has its advantages. See the comparison below. If you’re unsure, give us a call at 1-614-907-8900 or submit your information and we can talk you through your options, even if we don’t end up buying the property.

Sample Transaction

Lots of times we hear owners say, ‘my neighbors sold their house for $X,’ which can be misleading. In most of those situations, the sellers actually walked away with much less net cash than the top line sale price suggests because of transaction costs associated with selling through an agent.

The numbers below are from an actual sale. The seller “got” $100,000 but also had to pay $7,411.25 in closing costs, fees, and commissions, so in reality, the seller only walked away with $92,588.75. In this same situation, The Muirfield Group could offer the seller a competitive price without any of those costs AND get the whole process done faster and with less hassle.
