We recently came across a great article by @nerdwallet.com on the pros and cons of cash offers, when selling your home. These days there is so much information at our fingertips and the majority of it is available to everyone. That said sellers now have more tools than ever in order to be informed. There are a few main numbers that come into play when deciding if you should sell your home to a cash buyer in Greensboro, NC. Its current value, what it needs in repairs/upgrades, and what it will be worth after these repairs and upgrades have been completed. Once you have an idea of these figures, it’s fairly easy to see what a fair cash number would be in order to walk away from the property without doing anything further to it whatsoever. The person that does these repairs (usually the cash buyer, investor) is then entitled to some sort of fair profit for the time, money, and effort put forth to complete the project. Helpful Homes is always happy to show our sellers where we gather this information as well as the information itself. We can show recent closed sales in the same neighborhood as the home you are selling to us, as well as what we pay our contractors and crews to complete the work. Real estate is how we provide for our families, we do transactions that are true win, wins for both sides. As elementary as that may sound, it is a simple structure that we abide by. Of course, selling your property quickly and for cash, may not be the best route for you. We at Helpful Homes think @NerdWallet is a great resource in general and they continue to show that with this spot-on article, about if selling your home for cash is best for you and your unique situation.
Some of the Pros of selling your home, as is to a cash buyer like Helpful Homes are you no longer have to do anything more to the home. When we say we take homes AS-IS, we mean it. Do not worry about cleaning out the rooms filled with old things you no longer need or heavy furniture that was left behind. We take care of overgrown lawns and trees, filled basements, water damaged interiors, nothing is too much for us to deal with, we want you to be able to simply walk away. With some money too of course.
Time is on your side with Helpful Homes. If you need to close quickly and get your cash in hand, we can make that happen in as little as three days in some cases. Some traditional sales can take months before the seller sees any money in their hands.
Just because you do decide to sell your house to a cash buyer is not a 100% guarantee you will receive the money that is on the contract. Be aware of all-cash buyers with long inspection periods, they may use that time to negotiate money off of the sales price they initially offered. When you do choose to deal with a cash buyer, do some research on them and read reviews. Helpful Homes can be found on Google as well as the BBB. We take great pride in being a five-star company as well as A-rated with the BBB.
