Do You Need To Sell Your House Fast?
Selling your home can be a complicated endeavor. Often times, knowing where to begin, what to do, and how to do it are the biggest factors when it comes starting the process of selling your property.
If you are in the position of needing to sell your house fast, often times for cash, looking for a real estate agent to list your home is probably not the your best bet due to the fact of the amount of time it takes to sell a probably on the MLS. So where does that lead you?
If you are looking to sell your house fast, you most likely will be wanting to and needing to speak with an investor. Now, not all investors are created equal just like real estate agents. Finding the right investor who will handle your situation with care, transparency and professionalism is vital to having a successful sale of your home.
Talking To An Investor
When you make the decision to sell your house fast, you need to get in touch with an investor. Lucky for you, we are investors, so feel free to reach out to us to get an estimate on what your home is worth. However, since we are not just trying to win your business over, we want to give you some pointers when you do speak to an investor.
Make sure when speaking to an investor that they are making offers “as-is” and with no contingencies. If they have a bunch of clauses in their contracts about backing out, just know, even if they come in with a higher price, it could mean later down the road they may try to lower their offer on you. Beware of this!
Another great tip, get proof of funds! Serious investors always have proof of funds, whether it be cash in their bank account, or a lender(s) willing to back them with hard money, private money etc.
Determining What Your House Is Worth
You may be wondering, how do I figure out what my home is worth and that someone is not taking advantage of me. It is a good idea before speaking with an investor to get a general idea of what you want to sell your property for. If you do not know your house’s value, there are a few things you can do to help you get a better understanding.
Talk to a real estate agent(s) and ask them to give you a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). This will give you a good idea of what other homes are selling for in your area, what your house is worth in its current condition, and what the home will go for if you went with a real estate agent or “as-is”. A great benefit to this, its FREE! Another option, which does come at a cost, is to have an appraiser do an appraisal on your house. This is similar to a CMA, however, appraisers dig a little deeper and will have full report with details and reasons of why your home is worth what its worth.
