“I need to sell my house now!” is a phrase I hear often. The reasons homeowners want to sell fast are many. It could be financial like losing a job, or facing foreclosure; a life change like a relocation for employment, divorce, retirement, or the death of loved one; or maybe they are tired of the upkeep of a home and spending the money to make repairs is not a good investment.
The decision to sell a house is usually made after much thought, and once it is made then a homeowner must decide HOW THEY ARE GOING TO SELL IT. To answer that question a homeowner must consider the market value of their house, the speed in which they want to sell, if they are going to make repairs, and how much of an effort do you want to make to sell the house.
Understanding the value of your home is crucial but most homeowners have no idea of market value, so they look at the sources on the Internet like city or town tax assessments or real estate web sites to compare their home to others in their neighborhood. A word of caution these resources can give you a starting point, but they cannot give you a definitive answer. Just like you, your house is unique; its value is determined by comparable houses in your neighborhood minus the cost of repairs.
What is your time-frame to sell your home? Do you want out today, in thirty days or are you willing to wait for months? If you sell to a conventional buyer, you need to make sure they are qualified to buy, and if they have a mortgage company, you may be forced to make repairs.
How much inconvenience are you willing to put up with to sell the house? Selling a house the conventional way means that people are going to be viewing the house at times convenient to them.
There are many ways to sell your house, but if you NEED TO SELL YOUR HOUSE NOW you should consider a real estate investor. A real estate investor will understand the real estate market in your neighborhood, and after they inspect your house, they should be able to give you an offer within 24 hours. Their offer is based on your house as it is when they inspect it; you don’t have to make repairs. They pay cash, and they will settle when you want. In most cases, there are no fees and no commission to a real estate agent unless you have hired one.
