No matter what your motivation is, it’s always a good Idea to sell your house as fast as possible.
Even if you decide to sell your house traditionally, with a conventional real estate agent, the longer its stays on the market, the less valuable it becomes. To be more precise, the longer your home is on the market, the higher your chances of getting lower offers.
Currently a house listed with a real estate agent will stay on the market for an average of 50-100 days. Sometimes circumstances simply don’t allow for that much time. If you have a property that you need to sell quickly it might make sense to skip the agent and explore a non-traditional route. Also, if you want to sell a property that you inherited, you need to move to another area for work, or to get out from under a house that will cost you more in repairs than you are willing to pay, you have other options.
If you find yourself in any of the above circumstances, you will be happy to know that there is a market for motivated sellers just like you. People that make it their business to buy properties like yours. They are just as motivated as you are to purchase your property, in whatever state it’s in, fast, and often for cash.
Real estate is a broad business. For every homeowner with the time and patients to wait for the perfect buyer there is one that simply wants to move their property fast. Likewise, for every traditional agent/agency/broker there is an investor that wants to buy your property just as fast.
They close on your house fast, for cash.
A real estate investor wants to buy your house just as fast as you want to sell it. More often than not, they have an efficient system in place to make the entire process as smooth as possible. They have closing attorneys in place and money on hand. It can happen in less than two weeks!
They buy your house as-is.
Investors are in the house business. They have contractors and resources available to fix most problems with any house and they are more than willing to buy your house at a slight discount and take on any repair responsibilities.
They save you money and stress.
Investors are just as motivated as you are to make this deal. Usually they are willing to pay all of your closing costs and attorney fees. The money you save can easily offset any discounted price you are paid by the investor. You not only save money but since they have the closing process already set up, you don’t have to find your own closing attorney. Additionally, you don’t have to post signs in your yard or be at home to show your house to strangers.
Selling our house fast to an investor can be the solution to a lot of problems, but only if the deal ends in a win for both parties. The investor is looking for a bargain, even if they have to pay the closing costs and handle the repairs themselves, and you are looking to sell your house fast and get cash for it. If they are professional and reputable you might be better off with a fast sell to an investor than selling with a traditional agent.
