When people sell a home they usually go through a real estate agent. That’s the status quo.
But what many people don’t realize is that there can be a lot of hassles and fees tied up in doing so. They simply don’t know there’s a better alternative…. like selling to a cash buyer.
But thankfully, you’ve come to this blog post, which means that after a good read, you’ll be more savvy than the average seller.
So, here are 5 really good reasons to sell your home to a cash buyer. Think you’re going to dig them!
- Cash Offer
With a cash offer, there’s no having to rely – or wait – on banks. There are no buyer loan qualifications or appraisals to trip things up. No falling in and out of escrow.
Just a smooth, quick transaction. And fast money in your pocket.
- Sell As-Is
When you sell to a cash buyer, they buy your house as-is. So you don’t have to worry about disposing of unwanted items or having to take care of clean up.
You can also completely bypass expensive repairs such as termite extermination, roof repair, or replacing the foundation.
And since repairs aren’t an issue, you don’t have to worry about having to pass several property inspections or giving seller credits.
- A Quick & Flexible Close
While selling through a real estate agent can take six months to a year, depending on the market, cash buyers close really fast, typically within five to seven days.
And there’s flexibility, so if you need it to be longer than that, you can let them know and they’ll close at a date that works best for you.
- No Realtor Fees
Commission for a real estate agent is typically six percent. But when you sell to a cash buyer there are zero fees. Yep, zip, nada. Which brings us to the next benefit of selling to a cash buyer….
- Skip Closing Costs
Yep, closing costs aren’t just for buyers. Sellers have to pay closing costs when selling their home the traditional way. But when selling to a cash buyer, there are no closing costs.
There’s also no red tape, no surprises, no headaches, no stress. Just a quick and easy transaction.
