Selling to a Real Estate Investor vs. Listing Your Home

(December 8, 2016)

We know that you have options when it comes time to put your house on sale. You have a wide selection of realtors to choose from if2016-06-22-1466597770-4094622-bigstockWorriedEstateAgent80162576-thumb.jpg that’s the route you decide on, or you may opt to go with a for sale by owner strategy. You also have the option of selling to a real estate investor like me – this choice isn’t right for everyone, but it can work very well for certain situations.

Putting your house on sale, either with us or on your own, involves making any necessary repairs – especially anything major like roof leaks or faulty HVAC systems – putting up a new coat of paint, decluttering the entire house, creating curb appeal, and staging the home. This process can take a month or more, depending upon the condition of your house. You then need to either find a realtor or begin your own marketing campaign.

For those with little equity in their homes, or homeowners who have a lot of time on their hands and can afford to wait around for just the right offer, putting your house on sale with an agent or selling the home yourself may be the best option.

If you’re in danger of foreclosure, or have a rental property that has become a liability due to deferred maintenance, or maybe you just no longer wish to be a landlord, selling to an investor can be a lifesaver. If you decide this option is best for you, I’d be happy to work with you on the best deal possible.
