3 Key Advantages Of Selling To An Investor Over A Traditional Buyer In Gladstone

If you’re thinking about selling, you’re probably weighing your options right now and maybe deciding how to sell and who you should sell to. Check out this blog post to learn the key advantages of selling to an investor over a traditional buyer in Gladstone…

When it comes to selling your Gladstone house, you have a number of options. You could work with an agent to list your house and they’ll try to find a buyer. Or you could list your house yourself and try to find a buyer. Or, you could work with a real estate investor who will buy your house from you directly… and fast. Here are the advantages of selling to an investor…

Key Advantages Of Selling To An Investor Over A Traditional Buyer In Gladstone: Speed

In order to sell to a traditional buyer, that buyer has to be found by the agent… which is a process that can take months. First, you have to select the agent, maybe you need to fix and stage to make the agent happy, then they need to market it.  You could be at 2 to 3 months or more, just to get to this point.  Then you have marketing time to find the buyer, negotiations, inspections, appraisals, and inspection repairs.  Just the time from the contract to closing will be 45 to 60 days.

Fortunately, you don’t have to wait that long. When you sell to a real estate investor, they can close fast – often in as a little as a week or two (it varies, depending on the investor). Since they are buyers, and there’s no searching… you already know who they are so you can sell quickly!

If for example, you send us your property, we will call you back and talk about your situation.  Then we schedule a time to come look at your property, often the same day.  We take a few hours to crunch the numbers and then make you an offer.  At this point, we are 24 to 48 hours.   Once you accept our offer, we send it to the title company and they typically take about a week to get everything put together.  As long as there are no issues that no one knows about popping up, we can close at the end of that week.  So about a week to 10 days and the entire process is done.

So with the traditional buyer, you are at about 3 to 4 months, with us you are a week to 10 days.  So with us, you save utilities, taxes, insurance, and holding costs.  This can save you hundreds. And we are not going to come up with inspection repairs that could cost you more time and $1000s.

Key Advantages Of Selling To An Investor Over A Traditional Buyer In Gladstone: No Repairs

Not every house is in pristine condition. That’s okay, it happens. But when you sell to a traditional buyer, you’ll probably have to pay out-of-pocket to fix up the property and clean it before a traditional buyer will even look at your house.  In this HGTV age, you can market a home as a fixer-upper, but there are some repair items that the DIYer has to have fixed up front to get their loan or to insure the property.

And if the repairs are really extensive, do you know a good contractor who can do everything, or are you going to spend hours selecting various tradespeople to make the various repairs, and then spends time letting them in and out and dealing with the hassle of having contractors in your house.

With the Investor Buyer, at least with us, you sell it as is.  No clean up, no repairs, we will even take the stuff.  Yes, we pay less than the traditional buyer, but we save you time and money over the traditional buyer so it’s a small trade-off to sell quickly on the day of your choosing and move on.

Just be sure that when you do go with the investor buyer, that the buyer is a CASH buyer and that they have access to the CASH.  Be sure to check with the buyer’s title company to see how well or how many closings they have had.  And if the contract is 60 to 90 days out, then be very wary as they may not have access to the cash needed to close.

Key Advantages Of Selling To An Investor Over A Traditional Buyer In Gladstone: No Guessing

This is perhaps the biggest problem of them all: When you sell to a traditional buyer, you’re guessing and hoping that they’ll pay you the asking price for the house… and if you wait several months and they negotiate a lower price, well, that’s not ideal. But when you sell to an investor, you know exactly what the investor will pay right away. You don’t have to accept their offer but it’s a great first step to help you decide how to move forward.

There are many ways to sell your house. And although selling to an investor might not be the right choice for everyone, it might be right for you.
