Unique selling situation

August 1, 2015

I recently completed the estate sale of my parents' home. X, one of the sales crew, is set on buying the house. Not to be specific, but there are a couple of features that make this house unique. X's entire family has come to see the house and he has talked about his plans for the interior. He gave me his phone number and wants me to call when I'm ready.

I had an appraisal done for the current date (last week) and the appraisal was $410,000. The home needs carpets cleaned, drywall repair and painting. Other than that, the house is in very good condition. I don't want to invest too much in the house, for example, replacing carpets with hardwood floors.

Someone suggested that a real estate lawyer and title company can save me a lot of money over a real estate agent's commission. Has anyone ever had a committed buyer and tried this route? I know that the real estate agents reading this will argue in their favor.
