You’ve made a major decision. You decided you would like to sell your home! While looking around and weighing your options, you decided to look into a “home buying company”. There are many options you have for companies who are willing to pay cash for a home in cities and states all over the country. You may have even seen signs around town advertising “We Buy Homes”. Working with one of these companies (like ours) can make the sales process much simpler and easier for you, should you want to sell quickly.
Benefits of House Buying Companies
Selling a home has many factors that determine the success of the sale. Homes are highly dependent upon the condition of the property as well as other factors. Many find it hard to reach an acceptable price when working alone to sell their home. However, a direct buyer can help you avoid issues you may have trying to sell your home for a worthwhile price. Oftentimes, a direct buyer will even buy your home “As-Is” and take care of necessary, and often expensive, repairs. For many this is the better option, as this allows you to sell your home and move along sooner rather than later, and with less to worry about. When buying the home “As-Is” the cost of repairs will be taken from the price of the home, but for many this is a relief!
Another added bonus with selling your home to a cash buyer is that you deal with one company and only one company. Usually there are several people that you deal with when you decide that you want to try to sell your home alone or through the use of a realtor. A few include an appraiser, home inspector, or realtor among others. A lot of these individuals or companies charge fees which means less money for you and more time before the final sale. The best part about working with a cash buyer is your only decision to make is when you want to actually sell the home. You get your offer, and if you accept, you set a closing date. This usually leads to a considerably quicker sale and a faster closing.
The Benefit of Quick Sales
Quick sales are always a good thing. There are a great many realtors that are available and willing to help you make the sale. You should always set up a meeting with potential realtors and talk to them. Get to know them and let them get to know you. It helps them know what matters to you and what you’re looking for when selling your property. When you work with a realtor they are always on your side. The realtor makes a percentage of the sale when they sell your home for you so it’s in their best interest that the sale is made and for the best price available. This may also mean that the sale is dependable on “sellability”. “Sellability” may mean that your home sits on the market for an indeterminate amount of time as well. This, again, leads to higher costs in the form of fees, upkeep, and repair requests.
Selling your home directly to a Cash Buyer “As-Is” can help remediate this process. Every home has its fair share of wear and tear. Direct Buyers are willing to work with you to purchase your home and will work with you regardless of the status of the home. It may be at a lower price than the actual worth of the home; however, this means that you will no longer be responsible for the property nor will you need to invest in further repairs.
