Selling To Lifemark Properties vs. Listing With A Local British Columbia Agent
Even in a sellers market like British Columbia, it’s not a bad idea 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 Vancouver B.C. agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less stress. Dive into the details below to compare your options.

Work The Numbers And See Which Way Works Best For Your Situation…
When you really work the numbers you may start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your British Columbia house offers.
Yes, here at Lifemark Properties 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 close and cash in your hand in as little as 7 days
You can get rid of the stress of that problem property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, you get the drill. When you list your house, you may have to wait much longer to close, and you have to account for all of the costs of holding that property during the time you have that property listed and are waiting for the property to close.
Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning your house over and over for every viewing
We don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how much repair is needed (a complete fixer? great! we love projects)... we’d like to make an offer on your house. This saves you time that you can use on more enjoyable things, and money that you can keep in your pocket.
Don’t worry about paying those pesky closing fees (we’ve got you covered)
Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in British Columbia, we make it easy for you. We pay for all of the closing costs. What we offer you is what you get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property).
So when you add up the time you could save by working with Lifemark Properties, 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 area home owners selling to a professional house buyer may be the best viable option.

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 Lifemark Properties we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
