6 Advantages Of Selling Your House To An Investor

When you are thinking about selling your house, you probably think first to contact a Realtor to list it on the multiple listing service. This method can take some time and can be very costly. What most people don't know, you have several options, including selling your home to an investor. 

Selling Your House The Traditional Way

You make have to make costly repairs for necessary improvements to get that curb appeal that most home buyers are looking for. The property may stay on the markets for months while you continue to pay holding costs such as mortgage, utilities, home insurance, or maintenance and upkeep. Even after all this, the sell can still fall through due to the buyer's inability to secure funds to buy your house.

Dealing With An Investor

Most people are unfamiliar with the option of selling their house to an investor, but it is definitely something to consider, especially if you are looking to sell and close quickly. There are also other advantages of selling to an investor that makes it a great option such as:

1. The Speed Of The Transaction

If you lift with a Realtor, it can be a very time consuming process with an average of a 6 month listing agreement. The realtor will try to market your house by hosting open houses having total strangers go in and out of your home. Once you finally find a prospective buyer, that person will more than likely have to qualify for financing which can cause even more delay or even cause the deal not to  happen. Regular buyers always make the sale contingent on whether or not the house passes a thorough inspection which is highly unlikely if the house is an older one or it is a fixer upper.

The Offer Me Cash Difference

Offer Me Cash is exactly what it sounds like. We are ready to buy with cash and close the deal as soon as possible. This can be quite the advantage, especially if you’re in a situation where you need to sell fast. We give you a no-obligation cash offer for your house within 24 hours, and in many cases sellers walk away with money in the bank only a few days later.

2. No Need To Spend On Repairs

If you’re selling a home to a traditional buyer, odds are the future owner expects his new home to be in tip-top shape. You may find yourself paying to replace flooring, install a new roof, paint inside and out, improve landscaping, and take care of countless other time-consuming and expensive improvements that you wouldn’t have to worry about if you were selling to a home investor. Worse still, you may be squandering precious dollars with no guarantee that these fixes will result in a sufficiently high sale price so you can recoup your investment.

The Offer Me Cash difference:

Offer Me Cash will buy your home as-is, in any condition, so you don’t have to spend the time and money on home repairs. If repairs are needed, we simply adjust the purchase price accordingly and take care of getting them done after the sale is complete.

3. No Commission Fees

When you list with a realtor, you can expect to pay at least 6% of the purchase price. This means, if you sell your house for $200000, you can expect to pay the realtor $12000. 

So what about about doing a for sale by owner? Though you may think its a good idea to sell your house with no help, it may not be as simple as you think it is. You would have to do market research, implement a marketing strategy, vet potential buyers, and drawing up a hefty contract.

4. You Can Avoid Foreclosure

If you are behind on your mortgage payments and the bank is threatening to foreclose on your home, you are probably trying hard not to pull your hair out. You can probably negotiate a favorable loan term with the bank in hopes that will ease the financial burden, so you'd be able to keep your home. The issue with that is, a loan modification may not be approved and by the time your lender makes a decision, you'd probably be further behind on your payments which will undoubtedly increase the chances of your home being foreclosed on.

5. Help With Inherited Property From Offer Me Cash

If you’ve inherited a house and already have your own home, you may find yourself needing to sell. If the house remains unoccupied, it can be harder to insure and be vulnerable to theft, vandalism, or damage due to lack of maintenance. This, in turn, may result in depreciation and make the house more difficult to sell when you’re ready.

We can buy your home and even arrange for a moving company to help you clear out the house. The Offer Me Cash team can also assist you in navigating the legal process if you’ve inherited the house without a will and are working through title, lien or tax issues.

6. No Need To Clean

Most traditional buyers want a house to be pristine when they move in, meaning hours or even days of cleaning, polishing and scrubbing a house you won’t even live in.
