Want to Sell Your Home Fast? Here’s How!
Regardless of why you need to sell your home fast, traditional methods of selling your home just won’t cut it. Between finding a great real estate agent, repairing your home, cleaning your home and making it walk-through ready, listening to offers, and finally packing and moving, the experience can take its toll on you.
Some people are lucky and their homes sell quickly; however, the average house takes around 65 days to sell once its on the market (source: https://smartasset.com/mortgage/how-long-does-it-take-to-sell-a-house). That doesn’t take into account any of the other factors that could affect the time to sell including the market, the price you are asking, the repairs that are needed, and so much more. The process can be frustratingly long and tedious, and if you need to sell fast, you need another solution.
That’s where companies such as NorCal Home Buyers, a fast house buying company located in Berkeley, California, come into play. These companies help homeowners out by purchasing their homes in as-is condition as quickly as possible, or at least on your schedule.
The process is typically simple.
First – You decide you want to or need to sell your home. This may seem obvious, but if you aren’t ready to move or aren’t prepared to do so, you may be wasting the time of yourself and the representative of the company who is coming out to tour the house.
Second – Research companies that will buy your home fast. There are many great companies out there, but as with most businesses, there are a few bad eggs.
Third – Contact the company of your choice and schedule a walk-through. Most of these companies are willing to work with you on when to walk your house. They will work around your schedule so you don’t have to miss work or any other appointments you may have.
The tour of the home will allow the representative to gauge the shape of your home. They may take some notes and put together an offer for you within a few days. This offer is going to reflect the current market prices of similar homes and the condition of your home which will include any costs they believe they will incur in repairing your home. Most reputable companies will provide you with a fair offer. Please keep in mind that you likely will not receive market value for your home because these companies need to have the money to repair the house and then make something on the sale afterward.
Fourth – Make a decision to sell or not. From here, it’s all up to you. You can accept or reject the offer. If you do accept, then it’s up to the company to put together all the paperwork, write you a check, and close on the house. From there, you are no longer the owner of the house, and you have successfully sold your house fast.
While the traditional method of selling a home is often the obvious choice if you want top dollar, you may not have the time or inclination to go through the process. You just need to remember that there are other options out there than can help you get good money for your home and have it sold it quick.
