Selling To Blue Water Properties vs. Listing With A Local MD Agent
Even in a sellers market like MD, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your land.

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 MD land offers.
Yes, here at Blue Water Properties we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your land… but we also offer other benefits that going the traditional land 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 headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, grass cutting, snow removal, and many other maintenance costs. If you list your land 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 close.
Don’t worry about fixing anything up or doing any type of work on your land again for buyer after buyer
We don’t care what issues you have or your land has (we’ve seen it all!) ... we’d like to make an offer on your land right now. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket.

Because we are a full-service professional land buyer here in MD, 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). Pretty refreshing eh?
So when you add up the time you could save by working with Blue Water 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 is the best viable option.

*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. Similar, 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 land doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.
Here at Blue Water Properties we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.

Ask The Right Questions And See Which Way Helps You Get There…
When you need to sell your house fast, it’s important that you need to deal with a company that will do what they say. We have been doing that since 2003. Too many other investors make promises that they simply can’t keep. When you ask the right questions, you start to see who is the best option.
Some people choose to list their house through a real estate agent because they hope to get a high price from a buyer. But they overlook all the costs, fees, expenses, and time required for that to happen, and they also often forget that a buyer will almost always negotiate for a lower price.
Most people turn to an investor because they want to be done quickly… They want to sell the property without having the headaches of having to make any repairs not to mention pay the fees that come with dealing with a realtor, but often finding the right “investor” is not as easy as one might think.
Here are some important questions if you’re already dealing with an investor:
- How long have you been in business?
- Do they really have the cash to buy? Ask for proof of funds.
- Are really going to buy your property or will they be selling the contract once it’s signed? These investors are called “wholesalers”, and they’re simply a middle man, not a direct buyer with cash.
- Can they show proof on the last 5 properties they have bought?
At Blue Water Homes, we might not offer you the high price that you would list your property for… but there are other benefits you get by selling directly to us… plus you’ll save a ton of money! We invite to reach out to us so that we can discuss your options with you.
We ARE The Buyers
When you want to sell, you’ll probably hear from different types of real estate professionals who want to help.
Some will be real estate agents who want to list your house and try to find a buyer. However, there’s no guarantee that they’ll find that buyer. Some will be “wholesalers” who are really just “middle men”. They don’t have their own money to buy, they’re just finding houses for others — these folks tend to low-ball you, and often don’t even bother trying to see the house before the buy. They’ll often just give you an offer over the phone without seeing the house… and they might not even live in this state or even in this country!
… But WE are the actual buyers and we have the funds available right now to buy your house. We’ve done thousands of real estate transactions in the area. We’ll meet you face-to-face and shake your hand and work with you.
There is a huge difference between these types of real estate professionals. If you want to sell quickly, put money in your pocket, and work with a trusted local BUYER then we maybe be the best choice for you.
Fortunately, there’s no obligation to find out!
From Offer To Close And Cash In Your Hand 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, maintenance costs and so on. For example, if you have $1,000/month in bills, and you have to wait 3 months for a buyer to be found, that’s $3,000 out of your pocket you’ll have to pay before the buyer gives you money. What if you could have just sold faster and skipped paying that money?
(There’s nothing wrong with having an agent list your house, but their service can be slow and expensive, so it’s not right for everyone.)
Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer
We don’t care how many issues your property has... we’d like to make an offer on your house right away.
You’ll save time and money and a TON of hassle of trying to clean up.

Because we are a full-service professional property buying team serving the Baltimore market, we specialize in making it easy for sellers like you. We pay all closing costs (and there are no fees or commissions tacked on the end, like what you’d have to pay a real estate agent).
So when you add up the time you could save by working with Blue Water Homes, the no-hassle experience, and the money you’ll save on bills, commissions, fees, and holding costs while you wait to sell the traditional route… for many area home owners selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option.
