Run The Numbers And Find Out What Works Best For Your Situation…
There are benefits to each method of selling. Take a good look at the property and the situation it’s in, and find the selling method that will work best. Never overlook a direct sale until you find out what it can do for the property you want to sell in the Chicago area.
Consider these benefits…
We Can Close In As Little As 10 Days
Whether you are a direct seller or an agent working for your client, it’s very likely that you’ll appreciate the time savings you experience with a direct sale. Sellers can move on more quickly and agents will be able to get their commissions faster. Agents can even benefit from receiving both sides of the commissions! Sellers will love that they will no longer have to pay for things like homeowners insurance, property taxes, or utilities… bills they would be paying if their home sat on the market for months.
No Cleaning Or Repairs Required
The condition of the property is factored into our offer, but we will never ask for repairs to be made before we purchase. We are one of the largest property flippers in Illinois and love being able to completely remodel and repair homes, providing affordable housing to new owners. We will even handle all of the clean-up. Chicago area homeowners can sell without having to spend a dime on repairs or clean-up.
In A Direct Sale, You Can Skip The Closing Costs Too!
We’ve purchased over 500 homes in the Chicago area, and have the closing process down to a science. We will handle the entire process as well as the closing costs to make sure the entire process goes smoothly.

*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 Apex National Real Estate, we don’t use traditional bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
