Many people often wonder about a cash sale of their home – how it works, why they should do it, and whether or not there is some sort of “catch.” Cash sales are definitely different from a traditional realtor sale, and understanding the differences – and the process – may put home sellers at ease.
With a traditional real estate sale, there are many people involved – seller’s agents, buyer’s agents, appraisers, estimators, realtors, closing experts, just to name a few. A traditional real estate sale also brings along many more steps to the process than a streamlined cash sale. First, you need to prepare your home for sale. This may include renovations, professional home cleaning, replacing carpets, and even staging your home. Once the home is listed, there may be open houses and showings that require you to leave the home. Once you have an offer, which could take weeks to months, there is a period of negotiation of price. Even then, the process may take more weeks – and more months – before the sale goes through. In a strong market, the average length to sell a home is 30 days, and the average time in a slow market can be up to 9 months. If you need to sell quickly, a cash sale may be right for you and your situation.
Integrity First Home Buyers offers a 3-step process to sell your home for cash:
- Answer a few questions
To understand your situation and needs, our home buying specialist will ask you a few questions over the phone. How old is your home? Does it require renovations? How long have you lived in the home? What are your goals in selling your home? After we understand your situation, we will schedule time at your convenience to visit with you to tour your home.
- In-home visit
At the time you choose, we will visit with you at your home. You do not need to do anything to your home for our visit – not even clean! We buy homes as-is, with no cleaning or renovations needed. During our visit, our home buying specialist will tour your home and ask a few more questions. Then they will sit down with you to answer any questions you may have. Our specialist will walk you through the details of the process and make you a fair offer at that time. You can choose to accept the offer or not– it’s completely up to you!
- Schedule settlement
If you choose to accept our cash offer, we will schedule settlement at your discretion. You can choose to settle in days, or even months. Again, this is completely up to you. We are flexible, and our goal is to make the process as easy as possible for you.
