Selling Your House With Home Tree
Vs. A Traditional Rhode Island Real Estate Agent or Buyer

At Home Tree, we want to help Rhode Island homeowners explore their options when selling their properties. While some agents simply list your home, we can help you sell fast without a property listing. Either way, we’ll help you determine the selling solution that is in your best interest.

Who Pays For Repairs?Negotiated during the inspection periodInvestorWe pay for all repairs if selling to us for cash
*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similarly, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.

Here at Home Tree, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close a deal.

Run The Numbers Before Deciding
How to Sell Your House!

We Can Close on Most Properties in About 2 Weeks

Holding costs can add up fast, especially when dealing with the wrong home. A fast sale to Home Tree can eliminate utilities, insurance costs, maintenance, and your expensive mortgage. If your house is listed for a while before selling, these costs can add up to thousands.

You Will Not Have to Make Repairs or Show the Property

If your house needs work, listing it on the MLS can require a bit more effort. Many homeowners opt to make repairs so that the house is competitive with other listings. Your buyer pool decreases with a fixer-upper house.
