5 Reasons Why You Should Choose a Direct Sale Over A Venice FSBO Listing

The time has finally come to sell your home! We all know that one of the first things that comes to mind after making this decision is how much money will be made from the sale, quickly followed by a reluctance to share your hard-earned money with a real estate agent and the fees associated with listing on market. To avoid this, often homeowners like you will attempt to list their own homes on the market as an Venice FSBO listing. Unfortunately, these sellers are in for some costly lessons about why real estate agents earn these commissions when helping sell a home. 

However, another option for selling your Venice home does exist – selling to a professional investor. Professional investors don’t charge commissions, which can save sellers time, money and many headaches along the way. Continue reading as we explore five reasons why you should choose a direct sale instead of an Venice FSBO listing.

Skip the prep costs

Would you rather spend a considerable chunk of your budget prepping your home for someone else to enjoy, or would you rather save that money to spend on your new home? Avoiding the clean-up, painting, or worrying about the exterior and landscaping curb appeal will leave more money in your pocket, which is just one of the reasons you should choose a direct sale instead of an Venice FSBO listing. When you work with a professional buyer from Maio Strand Property Group, you won’t have to tackle this prep work and keep that money in your pocket. You can simply take what you want to keep and leave the rest behind. We’ll handle everything else, at no cost.

Avoid repairs

Concerned your house won’t pass the dreaded inspection and not interested in spending money on significant repairs? Old roof? Broken water heater or plumbing issues? Direct buyers like those at Maio Strand Property Group purchase homes in as-is condition, so you don’t need to worry about this. No inspections required and we even prefer houses that need some work! This is a good reason you should choose a direct sale instead of an Venice FSBO listing.

Staging costs

When you list your property for sale, you want to present it as nicely as possible to bring the most interested buyers and highest offers. Staging is a method of presenting the property as a blank slate to buyers during showings, using neutral tones, and removing all traces of personal possessions, however, staging costs can be quite high – “it takes money to make money”. Avoiding the costs of staging and stress of intrusive showings is another reason why you should choose a direct sale instead of an Venice FSBO listing


One of the most crucial aspects of a real estate agent’s job is bringing you a qualified buyer. In order to compete against other listings you are going to need high-quality digital photography, a drone tour, and to be featured on the top real estate listing sites. If not, you aren’t likely to be seen by a majority of buyers who search online for listings. These costs can add up and saving the money for professional photographers and the costs of listing on top real estate sites are even more reasons why you should choose a direct sale instead of an Venice FSBO listing

Holding Costs

People often forget about the time between when they list their home and actually sell their home, known as the holding period, which can drastically reduce the profit on the sale. This unknown time frame and dollar amount can loom over the heads of home sellers, and as time goes on and the phone calls slow down, the lack of response can become highly stressful. With a direct sale your closing is guaranteed and can be within as little as a week. This is a time and money-saving reason why you should choose a direct sale instead of an Venice FSBO listing
