Why Should You Sell Your Home to a Cash Buyer?
Have you ever heard of a cash buyer? If not, you are probably a little skeptical about why you would sell your home to one. There is nothing wrong with being careful, however, it is well worth looking into what a cash buyer does before you sell your home.
It may not be the most traditional way of selling houses, but it isn’t a scam, most homeowners just aren’t aware of this type of buyer. Here at Kent Family Home Buyers, we are cash buyers, and we are here to tell you that selling your home for cash is the way to go.
Sell the Home as Is
If you were to sell your home through a realtor or on your own then be prepared to start digging for that tool bag, and drain your bank account. This is because in order to appeal to your home you are going to have to put a lot of time and money into fixing up the home. You will need to make repairs and renovations in order for the home to look desirable to a potential buyer.
Buyers are not going to want to purchase a home that looks like a fixer-upper. They are going to want to walk in and feel right at home. The first impression will be everything to a buyer, and unfortunately, that takes time and thousands of dollars. If you do make these changes, keep in mind that these repairs and renovations are not going to add value to the home.
A cash buyer will purchase your home as is. Even if you own the ugliest or oldest home in your area, they will still purchase it as is. This is going to save you time and money.
No Realtor Fees
Selling your home through a realtor is going to seem like the most appealing way of selling. Don’t fall for this trap! The reason why it is going to be the easiest way for you is that you don’t have to do any work. Well, besides the hefty repairs you will need to make, like mentioned above, can just kick up your feet and relax while the agent sells your home. Right? WRONG! Everything is going to be on the realtor’s time. Showings, open houses, and them calling you about potential buyers. This is going to make your life pretty busy with keeping your house tidy at all times and being available to take phone calls.
A realtor will sell your home for you though. They have the listing and marketing resources that will allow them to find a buyer. However, besides them expecting you to be available, they will also charge you a large percentage of fees. They will want you to pay them 4-6% of what you sold your home for. This is a lot of money that you could be putting towards your next home.
A cash buyer will not charge you these fees. They just want to purchase your home and get you on your way to your next destination. We won’t require you to tidy up your home, ever. Save your time for your family, don’t spend it on a home you’ll be moving out of. It is not necessary when you can sell your home to a cash buyer.
Quick and Simple Process
When you wait for a buyer to close on your home it can take 30-45 days to guarantee the sale. During this time it is just a waiting game to ensure the buyer gets approved for a home loan. They can back out at any time during this process, leaving you back to square one; finding a buyer.
A cash buyer will come out and look at your home and make you a cash offer. They will not back out at any time during the process. Once you accept this offer, they will get you the cash in your hands and the home will be fully purchased in just 7 days!
