Have you considered selling your home to a real estate investor?
A lot of people overlook the perks that come with doing so – besides the fact that it’s pretty painless.
Now, don’t get us wrong, if you have a home that’s in primo condition and you’re not in a hurry to sell, you could potentially get more money selling it through a real estate agent.
But if that’s not the case, we have 3 big-time benefits of selling your home to a real estate investor you’ll definitely want to consider.
When you sell your home to a real estate investor there are NO fees.
Yep, you heard that right.
No real estate commission. No closing costs. No inspections. No hidden fees such as seller concessions or allowances. They give you a cash offer and that’s what you get – without any question marks.
Hand Off Repairs
When you sell a home you have to ask yourself, “What is a regular buyer going to find and ask me to pay for?” It’s an important question because there can be a lot of unknowns.
And if there’s say a busted pipe somewhere that causes water damage and mold, fixing that comes with a large price tag. And if you don’t disclose that there’s mold, you could get sued later.
If you have a cracked foundation and your home is sinking, it’s going to be nearly impossible to sell your home, unless you fork out thousands of dollars to have that fixed.
If you go to Home Depot and try to fix things yourself, you’ll have to pay retail pricing. If you use a contractor, they’ll likely give you an outrageous quote.
There’s a cycle of pain that often comes with lots of repair work. You have to pay more mortgage while you’re waiting for the work to be done, you have to disclose everything, and you may even have to get a new buyer.
If you sell your home to a real estate investor, they’ll handle all of the repairs for you because it’s a lot cheaper for them to do so. They hire their own people, so there’s no middle man.
And typically, the real estate investor is able to offer close to what you’d net after paying the money for the repairs or dropping the price.
In a hurry to sell your home? Selling your home to a real estate investor is ideal if you’re facing things like foreclosure, liens, divorce, relocation, or are going through probate.
While it typically takes a real estate agent three months to a year to sell a home, a real estate investor can usually close in seven to ten days.
And here’s the kicker: in addition to being able to make an offer that’s close to what you would net if selling through a real estate agent, you don’t have to deal with the hassle of waiting on banks, grueling paperwork, keeping your home “show-ready” at all times, or people coming in and out of your home.
It’s selling the stress-free way. Good stuff!
