Are you planning on selling your house sometime soon? Do you want to avoid paying the realtor commission but are not interested in listing yourself? Why not investigate selling your home to a direct buyer? There are a significant number of positives to consider. If you’ve never really explored working with a full-time home buyer, you may be surprised to learn why more homeowners than ever before are choosing this option.
Direct home buyers provide a real estate solution to homeowners who are ready to sell but…
- their home doesn’t fit the bill for a traditional listing
- they don’t want to list with a real estate agent
- they don’t want to list as a For Sale By Owner
- their home needs extensive repairs, renovations, or updating
- they are not interested in cleaning up and cleaning out their home
- they need to sell quickly because of a life event such as divorce, job prospects, they have inherited a home, or are tired of being a landlord
If you fit one of those descriptions or close to it, read further to learn the five benefits of selling your house to a local small business that buys houses directly from sellers just like you.
Traditional Listing Fees and Expenses
Skipping the real estate commissions may be one of the most attractive benefits of selling your house for cash. By selling directly to a local home buyer like one from Sunrise Home Buyers, you save several thousand dollars by skipping the commissions and fees of a traditional real estate agent.
And you don’t have to pay for all of the typical preparations that go along with the listing. These may include professional photographers and drone pilots, updating or renovating the property, and staging expenses. Because buyers searching for homes listed on the MLS quickly scroll through hundreds of listings with their fingertips, a professional agent focuses on top-quality internet marketing, which comes at a premium cost to house sellers.
Saving time is a convenient benefit of selling your house for cash. A professional buyer like the ones at Sunrise Home Buyers will take the time to explain each step and how they reached their figures to make a fair offer for your home. Because a direct buyer pays in cash, typically, closing is within a matter of a couple weeks or even days.
A direct buyer wants to offer solutions to your problems and make it an easy-peasy transaction. They will handle everything for you. When you sell directly, you are working with a professional. You gain the power of the team and their network backing them up. From inspection to appraisal, and even cleaning up everything you leave behind. Since they aren’t moving into the home after the sale, a direct buyer can close according to YOUR schedule, so there’s no need to rush your move. They put YOU, the homeowner, in the driver’s seat when it comes to timelines. That step alone turns the traditional listing process on its head! If that type of flexibility appeals to you when selling your home, why not investigate further?
Uncertainty of Repair Costs
Unless your home is new or close to it, there are likely to be at least a few repairs on your to-do list. For many sellers, worrying about how they will pay for these repairs, how much a contractor will charge, can they even find a competent one who is available, and whether they are even trustworthy, can lead to many sleepless nights.
When hiring any contractors, it’s vital you hire a contractor that is trustworthy, available, reasonably priced, and qualified to do the repairs. Many homeowners have discovered that can be a difficult task.
Because a direct buyer is making an offer on your house as it is, you can leave all those worries behind! Not only does a local home buyer like those at Sunrise Home Buyers relieve you of those concerns, you are relieved of the burden of the repairs you know about and even the ones you don’t! Direct buyers take on the risks of what repairs you are unaware of. Saving you potentially thousands in unexpected repair expenses as a negotiating tactic from would-be buyers is a substantial financial benefit of selling your house directly.
Turn Down The Stress
No showings! Sound like a dream come true? Very often a seller’s prime motivating factor in selling their house is to avoid the hassles and headaches of showings and preparing for them.
Many people find the thought of having their home exposed to thousands, if not millions, of people online disquieting. Additionally, sellers are often uncomfortable with the idea of strangers inside their home or having access to their belongings. When you work with a professional buyer like those at Sunrise Home Buyers, there is no need to worry about keeping your home spotless at all times or rescheduling your life around excited buyers who simply must see the house right now. No one will be calling at dinner or asking you to book up your Saturday while your home is open for anyone curious to walk through.
Save Both Time and Money
Everyone in real estate has holding costs, but as a homeowner, determining your holding costs can be difficult to calculate. But by selling your house to a local direct buyer, you avoid this expense alltogether! Obviously, a traditional listing doesn’t include a closing date when you sign a contract with a real estate agent. A cash sale to a direct buyer won’t leave your property lingering on the market because your house is in less than perfect condition, and you can’t afford to make the necessary repairs or upgrades to attract buyers.
If you have had to relocate for work or personal issues, waiting for a buyer to make a decent offer may leave you carrying the financial responsibility for two homes. You may also have to spend money and time to travel between the two properties. However, by choosing to sell directly to a professional buyer like one from Sunrise Home Buyers, there are no financing delays, so your closing date is guaranteed.
