Who Else Wants To “Sell My House Fast In St Louis?”
Selling a house through a real estate agent is pretty common… but it’s not for everyone. For some folks it costs too much money and takes too much time to sell through an agent. Yes, you might get a higher price selling on the market (although you might not), people are learning that it’s not always worth the cost or the time.
With an agent, you’ll pay to fix up your house, then you’ll wait months while they try to find a buyer (and you’ll pay bills the whole time), then you’ll pay a commission when it’s all said and done.
But there is another option, and that’s what we do at Christopher Ellyn Homes …
We buy houses directly from homeowners. We don’t list houses (like an agent does), which means you don’t need to fix up the house first, you don’t need to wait (we’re ready to buy right away), and there are no commissions or fees to pay.
Yes, it really is that simple!
Here’s how it works: Just let us know about the property you want to sell by filling out the short form below.
We’ll get back to you within the next 24 hours with a fair, all-cash, no-obligation offer. You can choose whether or not you want to accept the offer. But if you do…
… you just tell us when you want the money. We have the funds available and we can close quickly — even in as little as 7 days.
Can we help you get out of your problem real estate and put cash in your pocket so you can get on with your life? We want to pay you for your house as quickly as you’d like.
St. Louis is an independent city and major U.S. port in the state of Missouri, built along the western bank of the Mississippi River, which marks Missouri’s border with Illinois. The city had an estimated March 22, 2018 population of 308,626 and is the cultural and economic center of the Greater St. Louis Metropolitan area (home to nearly 3,000,000 people ), which is the largest metropolitan area in Missouri and the 19th-largest in the United States.
Prior to European settlement, the area was a major regional center of Native American Mississippian culture. The city of St. Louis was founded in 1764 by French fur traders Pierre Laclède and Auguste Chouteau, and named after Louis IX of France. In 1764, following France’s defeat in the Seven Years’ War, the area was ceded to Spain and retroceded back to France in 1800. In 1803, the United States acquired the territory as part of the Louisiana Purchase. During the 19th century, St. Louis developed as a major port on the Mississippi River. In the 1870 Census, St. Louis was ranked as the 4th-largest city in the United States. It separated from St. Louis County in 1877, becoming an independent city and limiting its own political boundaries. In 1904, it hosted the Louisiana Purchase Exposition and the Summer Olympics.
The economy of metropolitan St. Louis relies on service, manufacturing, trade, transportation of goods, and tourism. Its metro area is home to major corporations, including Anheuser-Busch, Express Scripts, Centene, Boeing Defense, Emerson, Energizer, Panera, Enterprise, Peabody Energy, Ameren, Post Holdings, Monsanto, Edward Jones, Go Jet, Purina and Sigma-Aldrich. Nine of the ten Fortune 500 companies based in Missouri are located within the St. Louis metropolitan area. This city has also become known for its growing medical, pharmaceutical and research presence. St. Louis has two professional sports teams: the St. Louis Cardinals of Major League Baseball and the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League. The city is commonly identified with the 630-foot (192 m) tall Gateway Arch in the city’s downtown.

Pros and Cons to Each of the Top 3 Ways of Selling a House
We’re here to help you make an informed decision. That’s why we’ve put together this quick guide for you to help you determine if Christopher Ellyn Homes – St Louis might be a fit for your situation.
Selling a house using an agent:
Selling using an agent is the most expensive way to sell a house, however depending on your situation, it might be the way you want to sell. If your house is in great condition, you have no urgency to sell, and you do not want to market and show the property yourself, this might be best route to take.
Pros: You don’t have to market the property yourself. You also have someone else handling most of the paperwork for you. Additionally, you will usually get close to full market value.
Cons: This process takes longer, (about 3-12 months depending on location and market conditions) and is the most costly way to sell. You should expect to have costs about 10% to 15% after commissions, any buyer concessions, escrow fees, closing costs, and holding costs. (Taxes, insurance, mortgage interest).
Timeline: You should expect to sell the property in about 3 – 12 months, depending on the market.
Selling a house yourself (For Sale By Owner – FSBO):
Selling FSBO takes work and time, but can save you some money. If you’re not in a rush, are familiar with the process of selling real estate, and your house is in great shape this might be a good choice for you. If your selling your house to a retail buyer, expect that people will be nit picky about your house, especially in around St Louis Missouri.
Pros: You’ll save money. This is one of the less expensive ways to sell a house, and is generally about 3% to 8% cheaper than selling using a real estate agent depending on how long it takes you to sell.
Cons: FSBO’s typically take the longest to sell. You should expect 3 – 12 months depending on your market. Additionally, if you’re not familiar with the real estate process, or not very good with people or marketing, this might not be the best route to take.
Timeline: Expect to sell your house within 3 to 12 months depending on the market.
Selling to a Cash House Buyer:
If your property is in need of some work, you need to sell quickly, or just want an easy transaction selling to a “we buy houses in St Louis” company is the way to go. Selling to a cash buyer is by far the easiest way to sell a property. Cash buyers are experienced, and can usually close quickly, without inspections and appraisals. Additionally, cash house buyers are not like retail buyers. Retail buyers are pickier, and require inspections, appraisals (sometimes 2 appraisals) and more time. Important to note that cash house buyers rarely can pay full market value for your property.
Pros: Selling to a “we buy houses in St Louis” style company can get you a faster close using cash. No waiting on banks. Less inspections and no appraisals. No back end fees, and sell “as-is” without putting one penny into fixing the place up.
Cons: Cash house buyers can rarely pay full retail value.
Timeline: Expect a 7 to 30 day close, or really whenever you’d like to close.
Each way of selling has its advantages and drawbacks. The important thing to do is to assess your situation and determine what route is best for you to take.
