No matter why you’re considering selling to an iBuyer, the conveniences that iBuyers may seem to offer may be far outweighed by the negatives lurking below the surface. iBuyers work on a large scale basis and sellers often find that questions and concerns go unanswered because the company just doesn’t care. You are just a number...not a name. “SchelleyBuysHouses” is a professional LOCAL buyer who is a part of the community and dedicated to helping the people of our city. Professional buyers like Schelleybuyshouses take the time to listen because our focus is helping individuals, Here are some reasons why it is better to work with your LOCAL professional home buyer right HERE....in our city... vs. an iBuyer.


iBuyers aren’t local, so being unfamiliar with our city means they don’t offer as much as your local professional buyer will for your home. iBuyers method of buying appears to offer a streamlined and rapid sale yet many of the fees you’re responsible for are well hidden, such as paying closing costs. iBuyer’s hidden fees and high commissions (their flipping costs & commissions) can all eat away at your bottom line.

Professional buyers like SchelleyBuysHouses offers a fair price, taking the time to fully explain the process, & see what your needs & wants are. Professional buyers like SchelleyBuysHouses don’t charge sellers fees & frivulous costs to sell your home.

I help sellers meet their specific needs, with both their immediate and future goals as my top priority. Theres many ways to fix the headache...lets put our heads together for the WIN-WIN!


iBuyers may add a contingency making the seller responsible for any repairs they deem necessary. Often iBuyers require sellers to accept the offer prior to revealing the costs that could be involved which often lowers the actual offer significantly. iBuyers devised this system to avoid taking on the costs of these repairs, lacking any concern over how you’ll come up with these extra funds before closing.

Professional buyers like SchelleyBuysHouses will purchase the house as-is, making it preferable to work with a professional home buyer in our city vs. an iBuyer. With my experience I understand all the risks involved in buying a home as is, & I also understand the relief this can offer to an already strained homeowner. With no clean up or repairs needed, you can avoid paying for expensive repairs & clean up before you ever realize a penny of profit.

Holding Costs

iBuyers motivation is profit, they’re removed from any sense of responsibility for the problems you may face or how much time passes, they can just move on to the next unwitting seller. While initially dangling the carrot of extremely quick closings, it is quite possible the very contract sellers sign is laced with contingencies, requiring repairs which the iBuyer is fully aware will lead to delays in closing. For those forced to relocate prior to closing, holding two properties means double the bills, in addition to covering the repair bills, until the terms of your contract are satisfied.

Professional home buyers usually close within 14-30 days....sometimes less. Depending on the circumstances under which you’ve decided to sell your property, your resources may be dwindling fast. My quick closing process means you can leave all of your worries behind, making it better to work with a professional LOCAL home buyer in our city vs. an iBuyer.
