Don’t know how to sell your house using a real estate investor? It’s actually quite simple. After completing an online form on the real estate investor’s home page, or calling the investor from a number on their website, in most cases, the real estate investor will quickly contact you. In your conversation, he will ask you several uncomplicated questions to help him analyze your situation. In a couple days, he will call you back with a cash offer. Of course, you’re not under any obligation to accept his offer, but if you do accept his offer, you will be able to close on your home in about 10 days, or sometimes even less. Learning the key to how to sell your house through a real estate investor will relieve you of the stress-related questions you may have, such as:
How long does it take for me to receive an offer on my home from a real estate investor?
Generally, you will receive an offer on your home within 48 hours.
How long will it take for me to close with the real estate investor?
You will usually be able to close in 10 days or less.
Do I have to make any repairs before the investor will buy my house?
No, investors buy homes is an “as is” condition and make the repairs themselves.
I owe more on my mortgage than my house is worth. Will the investor still buy it?
Yes, the investor can buy your home through a short sale with your lender or a lease option.
Does the investor just buy houses?
Most investors will buy homes, condos, town homes, apartment buildings and commercial buildings.
What if I already have a Realtor?
An investor may still be able to buy your house if the price is right and you get a release from your realtor for your real estate listing agreement.
Once I speak with the investor and give him my information, am I obligated to sign a contract?
No, there is no obligation to sign.
Will I have to pay the investor for selling my house?
No, there are never any charges or fees.
There are a variety of reasons you might have for wanting to know how to sell your house. Some of them are as follows:
- You’ve lost your job.
- You may be facing foreclosure and your house is going on the auction block in a few short weeks.
- You are going through a divorce and want to be able to move on with your life as quickly as possible.
- Your house needs expensive repairs, and you don’t have the money to do them.
- You are being transferred in your job.
- You are relocating to another city or state.
- You have health issues.
- You are downsizing.
- You are retiring.
- You inherited a property that you don’t want to keep.
- You don’t want to be a landlord any longer.
- You have become disabled and can’t make your payments.
- Your home does not have any equity.
A real estate investor will make you an offer on your house for any of the above listed reasons. If you need to sell your house fast, you won’t have time to wait for a real estate agent to list and sell your home. That could take months, or even a year in today’s market. Plus, buyers have a surplus of homes from which to choose. Real estate investors, on the other hand, will make you an offer in a couple days and can close within a week or ten days.
Have you wondered if an investor will buy your house if there are substantial repairs to be made? Perhaps you have significant damage to your home caused from water or fire, or even years of neglect. Realtors wouldn’t touch that type of house, but in many cases a real estate investor will buy your house even if it needs to be completely remodeled.
Of course, real estate investors are in business to make money, so they will make you a reasonable offer for your home, but it won’t be the same as the selling price a realtor may tell you your home is worth. Of course, if you add on the holding costs, repairs, fees and real estate commissions you will be charged, selling your house to a real estate investor will most likely net you as much or more that it would if you were dealing with a realtor. Another plus is that the speed in which you can close on your home will relieve you of all the stress you’ve been doing through.
