Most people who’re looking to sell their home enlist the services of a real estate agent simply because that’s how things have traditionally been done. Now, there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, the right real estate agent can make the home-selling process a lot easier for the seller.
However, it also needs to be said that not all home sellers prefer working with real estate agents. If that’s the case with you, there are plenty of other ways you can sell your house quickly and for the right price—and selling to a real estate investor is one of them.
Read on to learn why.
Investors Purchase Homes in As-Is Condition
If your property is in poor condition or requires extensive repairs, a real estate agent may not even consider working with you. Even if they do, they’ll likely ask you to have certain repairs and renovations made before they list and promote your property.
Real estate investors, on the other hand, seldom have such conditions. When they put an offer in for your property, they already know about the repairs and improvements that need to be made and will draw up an offer that reflects the money that will have to be spent on renovations and repairs. You will not be asked to hire a contractor or foot the bill at any point in the process.
Moreover, unlike your regular home buyers, real estate investors aren’t bothered by the extent of the disrepair. Your foundation could be cracked, or you could be dealing with a mold problem— they’ve seen everything and have contractors on speed dial to deal with issues like these.
They Can Help You with Foreclosure
If your property goes into foreclosure, you generally get a tiny window in which you can sell it to prevent the foreclosure from going through. Generally, that window is around 90 days long. If you’re confident that you won’t clear off your debts, you need a way to sell your property fast. Selling off your house to prevent foreclosure will still dent your credit history, but the blow won’t be as damaging as it would be if foreclosure happens.
In such a situation, time is of the essence, and you may not have enough of it to hire a real estate agent who’s willing to assist you with your case. On the other hand, real estate investors buy properties in foreclosure regularly and are familiar with the process. They may even offer to work with your lender and arrange a short sale.
