Everyone has mixed feelings about selling their home. On one hand it can be the start of a new adventure, but, on the other it ranks as one of the most stressful of experiences, so it is important to stay as calm and organized as possible. There are innumerable things to take care of, all of them competing for your time and attention. However, we believe that there are five things on this list to take care of first and foremost, and we want to help you scratch them off.
1. FIND A REAL ESTATE AGENT
Real estate agents are not all the same. You don’t want to hire the first agent that knocks on your door. From the moment you decide to sell your home you will start getting calls from dozens of sales agents in your area, all wanting you to talk to their realtor. Combing through all of these agents to pick the one you hope best suits you takes time, and this doesn’t guarantee that you’ve even met the perfect agent for you.
WE CAN HELP – You don’t need to spend days or weeks interviewing an army of real estate agents right away. If you talk to our acquisitions manager first, he will be able to assess your property and send you an offer within 24 hours.
2. INSPECTIONS AND REPAIRS
Before putting your home on the market it needs to be professionally inspected. Buyers will then make offers contingent on this inspection and what repairs need to be made. Usually this means you have to spend extra time and money making the repairs to your home, and in so doing, reduce the net price of the home.
WE CAN HELP – We buy properties in any condition. There is no need for you to hire an inspector. We can take a look at the property and take it off of your hands As-Is.
Our company is fully staffed and equipped to take care of all repairs ourselves, saving you all the time and headaches.
3. STAGING YOUR HOME
Getting your property ready to be seen by realtors and potential buyers is a lot of work. In order to attract a buyer in the traditional market you need to deep-clean, declutter, and depersonalize your home, so it can be toured and photographed by strangers. Maintaining your home in this market-ready state can be stressful, not only for you but for just about everyone in the household.
WE CAN HELP – All you need to do is pack your things and prepare to move. Leave the house As-Is and we will take care of the rest. We don’t care how messy things get while you are packing. If you don’t live in the property yourself (maybe you inherited it recently or you’re tired of being a landlord) and you just don’t want to face the prospect of dealing with any unforeseen disasters, we can take care of it for you.
4. SHOWING YOUR HOME
When you are selling your home traditionally, buyers will certainly want to visit the property after having seen your listing and photos. Encouraging as this may seem, it doesn’t guarantee that the visit will result in a sale. And any case a constant stream of visitors means a lot of scheduling as you will need to vacate the home, often several times a week or even a couple of times during any given day.
WE CAN HELP – There is no need to show your house multiple times. Our acquisitions manager is an expert at quickly assessing homes and will only need to do a quick walk through with you before preparing a fast cash offer.
5. CLOSING THE DEAL
Getting paid means preparing tons of paperwork. Closing day is payday, and we know you want to receive the money for your property as quick and efficiently as possible.
WE CAN HELP – Our company can close in as little as 2 weeks! We process the documents fast and efficiently, and stick by you every step of the process, so you close on your schedule with complete confidence.
