Some home sellers can afford to wait a bit for their homes to sell, but others need a quick,
efficient and flawless sale. Homeowners may need to sell quickly for any number of reasons
encompassing military deployment, a new job, foreclosure, or a divorce. The home may need

typically be as lucrative as other avenues, but payments are quick.
Traditional Real Estate Agencies

valuable services. Listings will be available to a wider range of potential buyers and they utilize
virtual tours that can be viewed 24/7. They can use staging, showings and open houses to
generate interest. Homeowners will pay commission fees, but traditional agencies can handle
