How to Sell A House Fast: Three Different Ways

(July 19, 2012)


House SoldHere are 3 ways to sell your house fast.1) List it on the MLS for below market value and hope that there is a bidding war. That's the first way to sell a house fast.

Pros: You will most likely get a buyer, if the price is low enough.

Cons: If the price isn't low enough, it will sit on the market like the rest of the houses. You will eventually pay the realtor commissions of 6%. And your buyers can still fall out of escrow.

2) Auction it off! That's right, you can hire a property auction company to sell your house . That's the second way to sell a house fast.

Pros: You can sell it "AS IS" to the highest bidder and accept a cashier's check for the full amount.

Cons: You don't know what it will sell for. The opening bid must be low enough to start get bids. Because it isn't the most common way to sell real estate, you may not have a lot of buyers at the auction. And those that do bid will want to buy at a discount.

3) Lastly, find a strong dependable cash buyer.
