When you make the decision to sell your home you can always choose to sell your home in the “traditional” sales process, but there is also another way. You can always choose to sell your home to a real estate investor. You might be asking yourself “what’s the difference between the two choices?” Usually a real estate investor (like us) is someone who’s more prepared and has a greater depth of information and a lot of experience in this process. They generally have financial stability and are a great choice for a stress-free home sales experience.
You might also be wondering what exactly a real estate investor does. You have probably heard about real estate investors at some point, but if you’ve never worked with one you probably don’t know what working with one is like. While normally a real estate agent would be responsible for helping with the sales process by helping you find the correct buyer, the real estate investor is going to the person responsible for the purchase of the property directly.
The real estate investor will start the sales process by evaluating the value of the home. They look at how valuable the home is long term as well as potential repairs and then weigh that value against the potential return on their investment. They may be purchasing the home to either flip the home, rent the home, or maybe simply replace the home back on the market since they can afford to wait longer than most other people.
Some of the best things about selling your home to a real estate investor are not necessarily obvious to most people. If you’ve never been able to work with one you might not have had any opportunity to learn these details. First thing is that you get to sell your home As-Is. You wont need to worry about major or costly repairs. You also don’t need to worry about the time that it takes for a lender to approve a home loan application. This also means that you can close the sale in much less time, often as little as seven days. All of these mean that they are more capable of being flexible when working with you. Additionally, they mean that you will have to deal with fewer expenses.
Now, we want to be sure that we cover the fact that there may be things about working with a real estate investor that may not be as good as what you would hope. Firstly we want to be sure to mention that there are people out there who are not exactly legitimate and you need to research everyone you consider working with. Feel free to check out our reviews on our site, and on Google. You will also likely be selling the home for less than what it may be worth. When you consider selling a home As-Is there may be factors that will take away from the final price of the home. No matter what you need to be sure to research the person you’re working with and do whatever is best for you and your situation.
