When you need to sell your house quickly, the traditional sales process can be a drag—literally. Talking to an agent, preparing the home for showings, waiting for an offer—it can drag on for weeks and months. You can avoid all that waiting by selling your house to a cash buyer.
No Preparation Needed
You can spend weeks preparing your home for sale. You have to clean it, declutter it, and spend thousands of dollars to make repairs or update the look. You know your home will be photographed and put on the internet for everyone to see.
None of that is necessary if you sell your home to a cash buyer. The cash buyer will buy your home “as is,” whatever condition it’s in. No photos will be taken, and although the cash buyer might take a look at your home, there are no public showings.
Get a Quick Offer
With a traditional sale, you could wait weeks for an offer. If the house is listed “as is,” with repairs needed, that time could be even longer. Prospective buyers will often pass over a house that’s not in move-in condition.
There’s no wait when you sell your home to a cash buyer. Within 24 hours of contacting the buyer, you can have a no-obligation cash offer on your home. It’s a direct offer from the cash buyer to you, with no sales agents in between.
Close in a Hurry
The closing of a traditional sale can often take weeks, and there’s always a chance that the deal will fall through at the last minute. Almost all people who buy a house need to get mortgage financing, and that involves stacks of paperwork and regulations to follow.
The cash buyer, however, already has the funds to buy your house and doesn’t need to get financing. There are also no inspections or appraisals needed to delay the process. The cash buyer will prepare the deed transfer paperwork and pay all closing costs. There’s no commission, either.
In some cases, you can close on a cash home sale within a week or so. In virtually every situation, you can have cash for your home within 30 days. The hassle-free, cost-free process can be ideal if you need to sell in a hurry.
