If you have ever sold a home before, you know selling can be a long and drawn out process. For this reason more and more people are choosing to sell their home to cash buyers. Why? Because the process is streamlined, and in most cases, hassle free. So how does the process work? That’s just what we are about to explain.
The Typical Selling Process
First, if you have never sold a property before, or it has been awhile since you have sold a home, here is a quick video that breaks down what is usually involved:
Showings, negotiations, appraisals and inspections – and in the end the buyer may not even close on the property and you have to start all over again, which can add months to the selling process. When you sell to a cash buyer you can skip the showings, appraisals and inspections, cleaning and repairs.
Find A Reputable Company
This step is probably the most important. There are tons of “investors” in every city. The majority of them are legit companies, while others not so much.
The first step you must take when trying to sell your home quickly, for cash, is to find a reputable buyer. Unfortunately, there are more than a few nefarious individuals and companies out there who are looking to “rip-off” unsuspecting homeowners who need to sell.
If you’re planning to sell to a cash homebuyer, you’ve got to do your homework! Research your options before making a decision. Look for a company with an established reputation, plenty of customer reviews, and a reputation for fairness.
Probably one of the best ways of checking to be sure you are dealing with a reputable company is to check them out online. If you found their number on a telephone pole, or you received a post card or letter in the mail, go ahead and do a Google search. If you find very little about them, or nothing at all, you will probably want to search for someone else. You want to find a company with great reviews and has been in business for some time, at least a few years.
It is extremely simple. Way easier than listing with an agent. It can be as easy as starting with a few phone calls:
This atypical selling house for cash process begins with a homeowner deciding to sale. Instead of contacting a real estate agent though, they call their preferred cash buyer. The cash buyer assumes the role of the realtor and assesses the property – sometimes with walk throughs, sometimes using comparable homes – to determine a fair market value cash offer.
After, they present the cash offer to the homeowners, the sellers can choose to close at their earliest convenience. No waiting for a financial approval! Selling my house to cash buyers meant I was in control. I determined the closing date, kept the traditional realtor’s commission, and approved a cash offer I felt to be fair.
The process can vary from company to company. It may also depend on whether or not you are dealing with an IBuyer or We Buy Houses company.
How Our Process Works
We have made the process about as easy as it can be.
First – just give us a call and give us some basic information about the property.
Second – we will do some preliminary research about the house and the area. At this point, with the information you have given us about the house and our research we will be able to give you a “ball park” offer on the house, a range of how much we can pay for the property.
Third – we visit the house and finalize the offer. If you like it and accept it, we sign a simple 2 page purchase and sell agreement. We hand over the paper work to our closing attorney, they finalize all of the documents and within a week you can have your home sold – for cash.
If you have a house anywhere in the Atlanta area the you need to sell, want to sell fast, and/or sell for cash, just visit our website to complete a brief form or give us a call at 770-756-8680.
