Selling To Meridian Capital vs. Listing With A Local Queensland Real Estate Agent

In a segmented market like Qld, including some in demand suburbs being a sellers market, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local Townsville real estate agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. Dive into the details below to compare your options.

Work The Numbers And See Which Way Helps You Get There…

When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your Queensland house offers.

Yes, here at Meridian Capital we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we also offer other benefits that going the traditional house sale route can’t offer.


From offer to a total solution in as little as 7 days.

You can get rid of the headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, you get the drill. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close… you have to figure in all of the costs of holding that property during the time you have that property listed and are waiting for the property to settle.

Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer

We don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer? great! we love projects)... we’d like to make an offer on your house. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket.

Don’t worry about paying those pesky solicitor settlement fees (we’ve got you covered)

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in Queensland, we make it easy for you. What we offer you is what you get (of course minus any remaining mortgage balance payout or other encumbrances on the property). Pretty refreshing hey?

So when you add up the time you could save by working with Meridian Capital, the no-hassle experience, and the money you’ll save on commissions, fees, and holding costs while you wait to sell the traditional route… for many homeowners selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option.

*A normal sale contract ‘Building & Pest’ inspection clause 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. Similar, a sale contract finance clause generally takes anywhere from 14 – 28 days to exhaust and 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 value for the amount that the bank needs to settle the loan. We often hear about a sale contract’s finance clause being extended or the seller going through this process more than once!

Here at Meridian Capital we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about losing precious time and money with contract finance clauses.
