1. DIRECT BUYERS ARE OUT TO SCAM SELLERS
Perhaps the biggest myth of all is that direct home buyers are out to scam homeowners. In past decades, there have been plenty of stories about unscrupulous people using slick sales tactics to trick desperate sellers into selling their homes for far less than they’re worth.
To learn more about the benefits of selling early with a direct buyer and how you can receive quick cash for your house, contact HBR Colorado today. Committed to helping homeowners sell early without listing on the MLS, they can help you understand where your money comes from when selling a home in Colorado Springs.
In addition, they will outline the time involved with selling your house directly in Colorado Springs to help you make the best decision. For example, if you live in an expensive community, and/or your mortgage is at a high-interest rate and you have paid off some of the principal on your loan, chances are selling a home with multiple offers (which is suggested nowadays) will provide more money than staying on market for months or weeks.
The value for most people in selling their home through an agent is more than just the commission they receive. Agents serve as a sounding board, even if they never list your house. They can discuss options for marketing your property and give advice on repairs that will help it sell faster to get your family the cash that they need on the timeline that is necessary.
The agent will provide you with a comparative market analysis or CMA, which is a snapshot of what your house is worth today. By comparing the data on houses that have recently sold in your area and how much they sold for, you can see if the real estate agent’s estimate is in line with reality. There can certainly be busy times you might find that their offer is surprisingly low if there are major issues with your house that you’ve been neglecting. On the flip side, if there are any unexpected cosmetic upgrades to the property or new additions you made in recent years (like an updated kitchen) you should note those things as well.
Both parties will want to walk away happy from the sale and this will help ensure everyone gets what they want out of the deal. There is nothing worse than having someone make you an offer on your house, then finding out three weeks later that there are still issues with their financing or other complications that delay them from buying. They should know when something can be expected in writing and what kind of timeline they will have for closing so they can plan accordingly.
