How I sold my house quickly to a professional house buying company
Due to harsh economic conditions, my family was forced to sell our house a few months ago. We ended up using a company that we found on the web, which buys houses for cash, the process couldn’t have been easier. Not only did we sell our house quickly, we were able to forgo the process of hiring a Realtor, having to list the property, and wait several months, simply to get an offer which wasn’t nearly what we were looking for. If you know that you have to sell in a hurry, consider selling your house to a cash home buyer in your local area, instead of working with “professional” Realtors who simply only care about a commission check, not helping you get the most money for your home in the shortest period of time.
Why sell with a house buying company
At first, I was a bit skeptical to sell in this manner. But, I quickly learned that working with a Realtor would be far harder. Some of the benefits I found working with a company which buys houses for cash included:
– An immediate sale. No negotiations, no listing on MLS boards, no dealing with offers which were well below our asking price.
– Average Home Values. The company did a comparison check of nearby homes in the area (size, rooms, location, etc) and made us an offer based on this. So, not only did we receive the market value for our home, they paid us immediately.
– Transparency. They let us know what was going on through the entire process. There was no bank financing or going through mortgage companies, so there was no long wait periods. Further, no inspections were needed, as they bought the home as is.
– They paid cash. Best of all, we didn’t have to wait several weeks or months prior to the check clearing. After we signed all documents, and agreed to the sale, we were paid for our home.
The process was quick, seamless, and we were able to move in just over one month’s time. Plus, no having to deal with realtors who were simply in it for their own self serving interest.
They Buy As is, So Don’t repair a thing
One of the main benefits we found with this company was that they bought our home as is. We didn’t have much work to do on the property, but the kitchen was a bit dated, and the bedrooms required a little upkeep work. They did not require us to do this, and bought the home anyway. Further, we didn’t pay for inspections, to hire companies to visit our home, nor did we have to pay for any work to be done on the property, which in the end made the transaction far more profitable for us as well.
If you’re in the same position we were in and need to sell, but don’t know where to go, here is a short list of references to national house buyers & real estate companies that you can sell to or that can assist you in a sale:
If you are hesitant to sell to a company that buys houses for cash, as long as you are dealing with a credible one, with a solid reputation as we did, you don’t have to be. It will be a quick sale, they are honest, you don’t have to repair anything, and best of all, you are going to be paid cash for the home, when you agree to the sale’s terms with them.
