OfferPad versus Traditional Property Listing with a Local Real Estate Professional


We’ve all seen the commercials on TV for where a company will purchase your home sight unseen, right? Well, we just had to give it a try for ourselves!

Simply put, we filled out a questionnaire answering questions pertaining to our Sarasota National property’s bedrooms/baths, location, fit and finish. Once we hit the submit button, we were notified that we would receive an offer within 24-48 hours.  Pretty exciting stuff!  We patiently waited and about 7 days later our offer arrived and in the table below  is what it looked like and keep it mind it was good for 4 days!


The traditional sale comparison below provided by OfferPad, in our opinion, is flawed. Based on recent comparable sales within Sarasota National Lake Village, the sale value of our home should be $325,000. Costs to sell include Real Estate Commission of $19,500; Title Charges including State Transfer Taxes are $4,225; Cost of Ownership $6,000; Local Move $1,500. Net proceeds in a traditional sale would be $293,775 or an additional $19,275 net proceeds to seller. So you decide, which truly is the best deal?
