Once you’ve made the decision to sell your home, there’s a few things that you’ll need to understand before you complete the sale. The sales process is completely different from buying a home and if you’ve never sold a home before then you might really need some help figuring things out. That’s where we come in!
Many people often see the ads around town claiming that someone is willing to “buy your home fast for cash”. We want to be sure to let you know that businesses like this are normally legitimate. Companies like Arbor View Properties are looking to buy your home, as advertised, fast and with cash. We’ve centered our business around this process and are absolute experts at the buying and selling process.
Many of these investors like us can help you deal with paperwork involved with the sales process, take time out of the process to help you complete the process quicker, and also help alleviate most of the guesswork involved. Businesses like this work closely with either banks, mortgage companies, or other lenders to be sure that they will have the money they offer when they complete the sale. You don’t need to worry about financing on the home falling through at the last minute or the buyer backing out. The buyer will work with you to view the home, determine a fair price for the home, and make an offer as quickly as possible.
Now, you are also likely thinking to yourself, “But how EXACTLY do I sell my house for cash? How does this all work?” First, you’ve got to assess what it is that you want to achieve with the sale of your house. If you’re looking for a fast, as is sale, then a cash buyer should be the first call. The cash buyer will view the home for the value of the home, current state that the home is in, and potential issues that might need to be taken care of by the buyer. They will then compare the home to similar homes in your area to determine a fair price for the home. Lastly, the cash buyer will talk to you about your motivations, your concerns, and what you’re looking to get from your home. Once all of these steps are completed, you’ll normally get an offer right on the spot.
To a cash buyer, there’s very little they require from you once you’ve decided to sell. Generally they’re only really concerned with the fact that you have decided you would like to sell, you own a home, and you want to sell your home as quickly as possible with no hassles. With the “classic” sales process there’s many more steps to this process, you will have to wait significantly longer to close the sale, and the process has many points at which the sale could fall through. This can make it very stressful and hard for many people.
Now, we also want to be clear about a few things as well. You want to make sure that you’ve committed to selling before you start the process. You also should be aware that depending on the current status of the home you may not receive as much for the home, but you will know how much you’re going to receive before the sales process begins. Last, you should always get an idea of who you’re working with. You can check out some of our home buying reviews here!
