What does it cost to sell to Vesta?
There are three types of costs you should expect to pay whether you’re selling to Vesta or selling on the open market.
In a traditional sale, you’ll pay up to 6% in real estate agent fees. With Vesta, you’ll pay a service charge because of the convenience and reliability that comes with working with us. On average, our service charge is 6-7%, but it could be lower or higher. Our service charge varies based on how long we expect it will take to sell your home. We assume all the risk of the home’s resale and holding costs so you can have the certainty of a competitive offer and move on your own timeline.
Repair costs vary based on your home’s condition. The advantage of selling to Vesta is we arrange a free home inspection. If there are repairs needed, you can choose to skip the work and have us handle the repairs after you move out. We’ll ask for a credit to cover the costs, and we can pass wholesale savings from our vendors on to you. Alternatively, you can choose to do the repairs yourself and send us photos and documentation after they’re complete.
Most home sales include fees related to title insurance, escrow, recording, and notarization. In short, these are the costs for the services required for one person to transfer ownership of a home to another person. They typically add up to about 1-3% of the sale price. We break each of these down when you request an offer.
