You will know from day one how much we can pay and when the closing will occur. When you choose to work with us, the process will only take a week, tops, or we will always work on your schedule, closing on the day that makes the most sense for you. We will handle all of the details to ensure a quick and easy transaction. From the paperwork to the repairs, to the leftover personal items you want to leave behind, we take care of everything so you can sell your unwanted San Diego house and move on with your life!
Hire A Real Estate Agent
Hiring an agent is an excellent choice for some properties. That said, when you list with an agent, there is no guarantee on if or when the house will sell. Sometimes the property sells right away if it is a brand new remodeled home, and other times it takes months. This can make it difficult to plan ahead. In addition, you will likely face some costs upfront to get it ready for the MLS. You will need to make extensive repairs, do some serious cleaning and possibly fix up the yard. You will also need to continue paying the expenses for the house for things such as property taxes, homeowners insurance, monthly utility bills as well as the regular maintenance costs. When selling your house in San Diego, the faster you can sell it, the more cash you will be able to keep in your pocket overall. If the house does sell with a San Diego realtor, you will then need to pay your agents commission which will typically run about 6% of the final sale price. All of these costs, in addition to the time spent, will add up to thousands of dollars and simply isn’t worth it for some properties.
Sell The House Yourself
Selling your San Diego house on your own will save you money on commissions, but it can also be very time-consuming and stressful. You will still need to make repairs and get the property ready for showings and you will also need to do the work of the agent- for FREE, of course. This includes screening calls from potential buyers, arranging property showings, filing the correct paperwork, dealing with the title company and managing the escrow process. The amount of paperwork and legalese can be daunting. An FSBO can be a lot of work, and the final sale price will usually be lower than if you had hired an agent in the first place. For some people, this can work, but for others, it can end up being a huge waste of time and money. We often run into FSBO houses where the seller has tried the route unsuccessfully and they’d like to explore selling directly to a cash buyer. In most circumstances, they almost always wish they had just made that decision at the beginning!
