Have you seen the signs on the edge of the road that say, “Sell Home Fast?” Those signs are real estate investor signs. Sell Home Fast signs have become fairly commonplace. Why? The primary reason is that in today’s market sellers don’t have the time to wait to sell their homes, nor the money to make repairs that the prospective buyer or realtor may require, and they can’t afford to pay holding costs, or the high commissions to realtors.
A real estate investor can make you an offer on your home within a couple days and can close in about 10 days. To most people who are having financial difficulties, need cash fast and need relief from all the stress related problems, this could be the perfect solution.
The process is simple:
Step 1 – Contact the real estate investor
All you have to do is call the number on the Sell Home Fast roadside sign. They generally also have a website address where you can complete an online form to sell your home. Rest assured that any information you put on that form will be held in the strictest confidence. If you decide to call them instead of completing the online form, they will be available during normal work hours. If you call after normal work hours, you can always leave a message 24/7, and they will quickly call you back.
Step 2 – Gathering your information
When you contact the real estate investor, he will ask you some simple questions concerning the property you want to sell. This information will help them to analyze and formulate an offer for you. This can usually be completed with one phone call. After speaking with you, they will quickly prepare an offer for you.
Step 3 – Presenting an offer
In about two days, your real estate investor will call you with a written offer. This offer will be extremely clear and easy for you to understand. Real estate investors strive to make the entire process as easy for you as possible by providing you with several creative solutions from which you can choose.
Step 4 – Selling your property
Once you and the real estate investor have reached a suitable agreement, you can rest assured that they will do everything possible to close within about 10 days. This agreement will be all cash and will contain no contingencies. The closing will be based upon your timetable and not on an unpredictable market.
Real estate investors are professionals, just like real estate agents. One of the differences in these two professionals is the time involved in the realtor’s beginning to end process, which could be up to a year, while a real estate investor can close in about 10 days.
Another difference is holding costs, which the seller will have to pay while his house is on the market. When using a real estate investor, there are no holding costs.
A third difference is the repairs you may be required to pay, if the prospective buyer or real estate agent requires it. When you use a real estate investor, you will never have to do any costly repairs. Investors buy homes “as is.”
Remember, your home can be sold and closed in about 10 days when you decide to sell your home through a real estate investor. When you see a Sell Home Fast sign, think of us and give us a call. We’re here to help!
