If you’re thinking about selling, you’re probably weighing your options right now and maybe deciding how to sell and who you should sell to. Check out this blog post to learn the key advantages of selling to an investor over a traditional buyer in San Antonio…
When it comes to selling your San Antonio house, you have a number of options. You could work with an agent to list your house and they’ll try to put it on the market and find a buyer. But this pad might be time-consuming and more expensive than you realize. Or you could list your house yourself and try to find a buyer, Fortunately this are not your only options, you could ALSO work with a real estate investor who will buy your house from you directly… and fast. Here are the advantages of selling to an investor…
Key Advantages Of Selling To An Investor Over A Traditional Buyer In San Antonio: Speed
In order to sell to a traditional buyer, that buyer has to be found by the agent… which is a process that can take months. But remember even before you start this process it’s necessary for you to make necessary improvements and invest money in repairs. And while this process takes place you need to keep paying mortgage, utilities and home insurance.
Once this is done your prospective buyer is unlikely to pay your full asking price, and probably ask for an inspection or demand that you make further repairs or improvements, and after all this, the deal can still fall through if the buyer experiences financing issues.
Fortunately, you don’t have to wait that long. When you sell to a real estate investor, they can close fast – often in as a little as a week or two (it varies, depending on the investor). Since they are buyers, and there’s no searching… you already know who they are so you can sell quickly!
And a bonus of this: you don’t have to pay bills and taxes on that property while you’re waiting for a buyer to be found. This can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in ongoing bills.
Key Advantages Of Selling To An Investor Over A Traditional Buyer In San Antonio: No Repairs
Not every house is in pristine condition. That’s okay, it happens. But when you sell to a traditional buyer, you’ll probably have to pay out-of-pocket to fix up the property and clean it before a traditional buyer will even look at your house.Let’s be honest the future owner expects his new home to be in tip-top shape, so you may find yourself replacing floor, installing new roof, painting inside and outside, even improving landscaping, and taking care of other countless and tie-consuming, expensive improvements, and the worst part about this is that you are not sure this investing would really pay off, since there is no guarantee these fixes will result in a sufficiently high sale price.
But most investors buy houses in as-is condition, which means you can save money and time (and hassle!) by skipping the repair and cleaning.
And if the repairs are really extensive, you won’t have to deal with a contractor, either. Yes, the investor may ask for a small discount on the selling price since THEY are covering the repairs instead of you, but this is a small price to pay to sell quickly and without all the hassle.
Key Advantages Of Selling To An Investor Over A Traditional Buyer In San Antonio: No Guessing
This is perhaps the biggest problem of them all: When you sell to a traditional buyer, you’re guessing and hoping that they’ll pay you the asking price for the house… and if you wait several months and they negotiate a lower price, well, that’s not ideal. But when you sell to an investor, you know exactly what the investor will pay right away. You don’t have to accept their offer but it’s a great first step to help you decide how to move forward.
There are many ways to sell your house. And although selling to an investor might not be the right choice for everyone, it might be right for you.
