By now, you’ve likely seen signs advertising “we buy houses” or “cash for your house” among many others with similar messages while driving through town. If you’re like most people, you probably thought to yourself “Who buys houses for cash?”. “Are they legitimate?” “Should I trust someone like that?” Hopefully, we can answer a few of these questions, and maybe even answer a few you didn’t think to ask.
We understand that selling your home is a complicated and important decision, and we will always recommend that you do your own research into who you do business with and also that you protect yourself with whoever you decide that you want to help you.
Create a “Win-Win” Solution
Our first recommendation is to choose someone that wants you to “win” as much as they do. Whatever your reason for selling, we understand that this is a complicated and difficult process. It’s ok to ask for help. Selling your home to a cash buyer will oftentimes be a lifesaver as this can help ease this process and take some of your worries away. Cash buyers help make the home selling process quicker, allowing you to get cash fast. You will likely be able to sell your home “As-Is”, allowing you to not have to worry about costly repairs. We’re real local investors who want to create as many “Win-Win” scenarios to help as many homeowners, like you, as possible.
Weigh the Benefits
Our biggest recommendations to you are to make sure that you’re reasonable and honest with who you work with. When you decide to sell your house for cash, a cash buyer is paying you with exactly that, cash. This speeds up the closing process and means you don’t have to deal with bank financing. A cash buyer can purchase a home in as few as seven days assuming that you want, or need, to sell that quickly. A traditional listing can often take as many as 9 months. It’s also important to know that selling your home for cash usually means that you won’t get as much for the home as you would if you went with a retail buyer up front, but could actually save you in the long run from costs like repairs to sell, commissions to your realtor, and upkeep during the selling process. A cash offer on your house generally allows you to sell fast and get on with whatever else you have going on in life.
Be Accurate and Transparent
Be accurate and upfront with any and all potential repairs when negotiating with a cash buyer. Most cash buyers focus on maintaining their reputation, which means they work hard on ensuring that they don’t actively hinder a sale in the name of saving a few dollars. So again, just be honest with the buyer.
Most cash buyers, like Red Ladder Property Solutions, are looking to keep everyone’s best interests in mind and will be willing to work to help you sell your home. You should always remember that this process should never be compromising to anyone. Many cash buyers will even look to help you stay in your home if that’s what is best for you. As long as you are transparent about what your situation is and what you’re looking for, we’ll be able to help you out!
