Discover The Pros & Cons Of A Professional House Buyer
Discover The Pros and Cons Of Selling Your House To Local Appleton Professional Home Buyer
There are only 3 ways to sell a house; with a realtor, by yourself, or to a professional home buyer. Each option comes with positives and negatives.
When you list your home with a realtor, there is a process to follow.
You contact a realtor you think you'd like to work with. You sign a 6 month listing agreement. They start marketing the property on the MLS. They set up showings and bring people through your home. Hopefully you receive and offer in which they handle all the paperwork.
Sounds pretty good right.
Let's look at the other side of listing your house with a realtor.
The first and obvious one is the cost. You can pay a realtor anywhere form 3%-6% for listing, marketing and showing your house. If you sell for $100,000 that is $6000 that comes out of your pocket.
The second is time. Houses don't always sell right away and it may take 3, 6, 9 months or longer to sell your home. That means during that time you must put up with showings, keeping your house clean, open houses and just the cost of waiting to sell.
Third, you need to continue to pay your mortgage, utilities, taxes and other property related bills.
If you are not in a hurry to sell your house, using a realtor is for you.
You may decide you are not the type to work with a realtor and want to sell it on your own.
There are benefits to selling your house "for sale by owner."
You can decide on your own selling price. You can take pictures and list it on all the for sale by owner websites. You can then ask a realtor to put it on the MLS for you. You get to handle all the showings, paperwork and closing of the sale.
You could be saving money on commission and fees. If you are a good marketer and know real estate this option might be for you.
There are hidden costs that creep up when you list with a real estate agent or sell on your own.
It costs money to list on the for sale by owner websites and the price varies from $100-$1000.
You need to keep your house clean and manage all the showings alone. If you are not comfortable explaining why your walls are blue, this may not be for you.
You will need to be comfortable with the real estate contracts and all of the little details necessary for inspection, appraisal, funding and closing.
You need to continue to pay your mortgage, utilities, taxes and other property related bills.
While for sale by owner is not for everyone, if you are familiar with real estate and marketing and are not in a hurry to sell your home, this may be for you.
With a professional home buyer you have a few more positives than negatives. Let's take a look at your third option.
The process is very straightforward. You fill out a form with the details of your home. The investor will do their due diligence and determine the comparable sales in your neighborhood and a possible offer amount. The investor will set an appointment to walkthrough your home to determine any work that might need to be done. Taking that into consideration, you receive an offer the same day.
If you agree to the offer, the investor will set up closing and the sale will be final in as little as 14 days.
Sounds perfect. So what's the catch? There isn't one.
A professional home buyer usually makes a purchase all cash. This eliminates the need for an inspection and appraisal.
The other huge advantage is that your house is sold in 1 day and you can have a check in hand within 14 days.
There are no holding costs, no additional mortgage payments, no utility payments...nothing.
You can be free and clear to move on to your new home.
