Selling your home ASAP is sometimes necessary to do when you are moving or just have to get out of the home for many different reasons. This article comes from http://www.realtor.com/ by Elise Sole an it talks about just that.
Selling to a cash buyer which is one of the ways this article points out you can sell your home. I have personally bought homes like this many times. The key is to be fair and make sure all parties are getting a fair market deal.
““These situations usually appeal to homeowners who just need to get a
property off their hands,” says Benuska. But there are downsides:
Flippers may demand below-market price, so they can resell it later for a
larger profit. So just be sure your flipper isn’t fleecing you up the
wazoo; at the very least, compare offers from two or more investors so
they can’t steamroll you.”
I am going to a home today to meet an appraiser to first understand the value and then make a cash offer on this property because it is a very unique property or list it. Working with a Realtor like me gets you the best of both worlds. I will get you a cash offer and or also list your home to sale. The cash offer is usually going to be lower, but it done quickly. Either way you can make an informed decision and you make more money that way.
Avoid guaranteed sales programs because a lot of the time the Realtor will not work the listing hard to get the cash price offered.
“If you ever see a sign that reads, “If we don’t sell your home in 30 days, we’ll buy it,” run away fast.”
““These are complete scams,” says Janine Acquafredda, associate broker at House-N-Key Realty
in Brooklyn, NY. Here’s how it usually works: The real estate agent
promises to list a home for a fixed period of time and if it’s not sold,
he or she will buy it directly from the seller.
the owner makes a sale,” says Acquafredda. “In reality, the agent often
has no intention of putting the home on the market and in the end, pays
the lowest possible market price for the home.”
