Q: Why should I sell my home
to you instead of listing it with a realtor?
A: GOOD question!
There are several advantages:
don't care about your housekeeping.
You don't have to clean your house or even put your
Just leave everything put. That's not the
part I'm looking for.
2. You don't
have to make any repairs to your home to
make it attractive or marketable to me. 99% of the
homes we buy need at least some sort of work - dirt and
disrepair won't discourage me at all. We don't care. We've seen worse. Leave everything
"as is" and just send us an email or give us a
3. It's a
FAST sale! We can usually remove
the financial burden of your home in about 10 to 14
days. (Very handy in foreclosure or distressed
4. It's a
"For sure" sale.
When you list a home with a realtor, you're just one of
many homes that your realtor has for sale. You
hope they sell your home quickly, but you never
know. It's an open-ended deal. Maybe
they will - maybe they won't. With me, we can make
a decision quickly to purchase your home and it's over in about 10 days. No waiting. No
hoping. It's a done deal.
How much will you give me for my home?
A: Each home purchase is unique.
We try to find out the end goals of each homeowner, and
work our deal to try and meet those goals as closely as
Well, money and a fast sale are my goals. How do I
know if I even have a deal you'd be interested in?
you've lived in your home over 5 years, or if you
purchased your home originally at under-market prices,
or if your neighborhood has experienced a fast rate of
appreciation in recent years, we should talk - we might
just have a deal. Let's get started. Send me an email with
4 things: 1.
The property address 2. Your name
3. Your particular situation (why you need to
sell). 4. How much you need to get for your
home (if you know). I'll get back with you within
24 hours. Email
Won't I make more money if I sell it through a realtor?
necessarily. The costs associated
with trying to sell your home at fair market prices
through a realtor add up quickly. And when you consider the extra hassle
of keeping your home in "show condition" for
an extended period of time while you try to sell, plus
the open-endedness of the deal itself, it may not be
worth it. Let's take a look:
Even though some realtors
may give you a break on their commission
sell your home personally, let another realtor sell it
and you can count on at least 7% because they now have
to split the commission with someone else.
Also, we have what is known as a "Buyer's
Market" right now, meaning that there are a lot of
homes on the market at very attractive prices. So,
if you hope for a quick sale, you need to make your deal
more attractive than the next guy by offering to pay
closing costs. Your realtor will most likely
suggest you do so. This means you can add another
3% on average to your expenses. (I, on the other
hand, always pay all closing costs on the homes I buy,
by the way). So, add the 7% commission plus 3%
closing costs together, now the net profit
is reduced by 10% right off the top. So, a
$130,000.00 sale drops to $117,000 right up front when
you deduct commission and closing cost expenses.
And that's if your home is in "move in"
condition. If not, you'll end up deducting more from
your net profit.
In this "Buyer's
Market", your home needs to be free of flaws and
maintenance issues to hope for a quick sale at fair
market prices. How much "curb appeal"
your home takes will depend on your particular home, but
take it from someone who does this for a living - it's
ALWAYS more than you think. If your
home is in pretty good condition, you may only have to
spend 5% or so - but if it needs a little work it could easily be more.
So, will you come out
better by selling your home through a realtor?
After you deduct the 7% commission, plus 3% closing
costs, plus whatever $$$$ for "curb appeal" and repairs in
hope that your home sells in a reasonable amount of
time, plus add the fact that you may wait months on a
sale and never even know if it WILL sell, while you pay
one mortgage note after another; I think you are getting
the picture. Sometimes selling your home for a good price to someone
like myself who can do a 15 minute walk-through and say
"Sure, I'll buy it" starts to sound like an
acceptable plan, if so,
