Google 5-Star Rating

You have options when selling your house. Sometimes it makes sense to list it, other times selling for cash is the best course of action.

Before listing with an agent it doesn’t hurt to get a no obligation cash offer so you have a benchmark.

How do I know what the best option is for me?

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you have time? If you list with an agent be prepared to wait 3-6 months (or longer) for closing
  • Do you mind paying additional “holding costs”? During this period do you mind paying additional money for property taxes, insurance, utilities, lawn maintenance and general upkeep?
  • Is Your House in “Like-New” Condition? Many of the homes listed on the open market are in very good condition.
  • Are you ok with showings and open houses? Some homeowners don’t like the idea of random strangers walking through their house every week nitpicking everything.
  • Are you ok with making repairs or improving curb appeal? If your house isn’t in excellent condition are you ok with fixing the problems and/or sprucing up the exterior for added curb appeal?

If you answered “no” to any of the above options, it might not be a bad idea to consider a cash offer before committing to a 6-month listing agreement. However, if you are in no hurry to sell and your house is in excellent condition and not outdated, you should list it with an agent.

Selling Your House for Cash to an Investor

There is a common misconception that all cash offers are “low ball offers” and you will be leaving money on the table. While it is true there are many people out there who are only interested in buying your house for next to nothing, there are also good guys who make fair offers.

We built our business on serving our community and upholding a reputation and would never offend you with a low ball offer. We believe in making fair offers that help you sell your house easily without all the hassle of listing with an agent.

Cash offers make sense if you answered “no” to any of the above questions. If you need to sell fast or if your house is in need of repair or if the kitchens and bathrooms are very outdated it might make sense to sell for cash.

If you don’t want to deal with strangers walking through your house, financed offers, inspections and the chance the deal will fall apart you may want to sell your house for cash.
