Selling your house in Coachella Valley? Don’t want to pay commission but not interested in listing yourself? Why not take a look at selling directly? There are many benefits to skipping the middle man (the agent)! If you’ve never really explored working with a professional buyer, you may be surprised to learn why so many choose this option.
Professional buyers provide a solution to homeowners with properties ready to sell but just don’t fit the bill for a traditional listing or don’t want to deal with a pushy agent. Sometimes the seller doesn’t want to wait months before closing the transaction. Sometimes, they may not want strangers traipsing through the property, or maybe there is some kind of limitation of access. Here are five benefits of selling your house for cash in Coachella Valley
Traditional Listing Expenses
Skipping the commissions may be one of the most attractive benefits of selling your house for cash in Coachella Valley. By selling directly to a professional buyer like one from Coachella Valley HomeBuyers, you save several thousand dollars by forgoing the commissions and fees of a traditional real estate agent. And you don’t have to pay all of the typical marketing expenses along with the listing. These may include professional photographers and drone pilots, updating or renovating the property, and staging expenses. Because buyers searching for homes listed on the MLS quickly scroll through hundreds of listings with their fingertips, a professional agent focuses on top-quality internet marketing, which comes at a premium cost to sellers.
Not having to pay commissions doesn’t always mean that you will end up with more money when you close, but it certainly means you will close weeks, even months sooner. Saving time is a convenient benefit of selling your house for cash in Coachella Valley. A professional buyer like the ones at Coachella Valley HomeBuyers will take the time to explain each step and how they reached the figures to make a fair offer for your home. Because a direct buyer pays in cash, typically, closing is within a matter of days or weeks. A direct buyer wants to offer solutions to your problems and make it an easy transaction. They will handle everything for you. When you sell directly, you are working with a professional, you gain the power of the team backing them up, from inspection to appraisal, and even cleaning up anything you leave behind. Because they aren’t moving into the home after the sale, a direct buyer can close around your schedule, so there’s no need to rush your move. Sometimes, the reverse is true- a seller actually needs longer to be able to close. A professional buyer will close on whatever day works best for the seller and can accommodate any special requests like working around tenants, or allowing the sellers to stay longer if necessary.
Uncertainty of Repairs
Unless your home is new, likely, there are at least a few repairs on your to-do list. For many sellers, worrying about how they will pay for these repairs can lead to many sleepless nights. Because a direct buyer is making an offer on your house as it is, you can leave all your worries behind. Not only does a professional buyer like those at Coachella Valley HomeBuyers relieve you of your concerns, you are relieved of the burden of the repairs you know about and the ones you don’t! Direct buyers take on the risks of what may lie hidden. Saving you potentially thousands in unexpected repair expenses is a substantial financial benefit of selling your house for cash in Coachella Valley. Agents who bring buyers will often promise an easy close, but then after the inspection end up asking for repairs to be done (or a reduction in sales price) anyway. Professional buyers will never ask you to fix anything.
No showings! Very often, sellers motivating factor in selling their house for cash in Coachella Valleyis to avoid the hassle and headache of showings. Many people find the thought of having their home exposed to millions of people online disquieting. Additionally, sellers are often uncomfortable with the idea of strangers inside the house or touching their belongings. When you work with a professional buyer like those at Coachella Valley HomeBuyers, there is no need to worry about keeping your home spotless at all times or rescheduling your life around excited buyers who simply must see the house right now. No one will be calling at dinner or asking you to leave all weekend while your home is open for anyone curious to walk through. Sometimes there are tenants (and sometimes hostile tenants!) that make showing the property very difficult or impossible. A good professional homebuyer can quote you an offer to buy site unseen, meaning without ever needing to enter the property.
Time is Money
Avoiding holding costs is a benefit of selling your house for cash in Coachella Valley that is difficult to determine, especially if you live in a neighborhood with an HOA. A traditional listing doesn’t include a closing date when you sign a contract with a real estate agent. A cash sale to a direct buyer won’t leave you lingering on the market because your house is in less than perfect condition, and you can’t afford to make the necessary repairs or upgrades to attract buyers. Did you know approximately 1/3-4 escrows will cancel for different reasons? If you are in a hurry and get unlucky, it’s not unheard of to fall out escrow twice even three times through no fault of your own, and closing could literally take MONTHS. If you found a house that better fits your needs, or your dream house and you need some proceeds from your current house to put down that dream home is NOT going to wait for you! Telling the seller of that home that you just have to sell your current house first is called a “contingent offer”, and there is an extremely small chance a seller will accept it in this market. If you have had to relocate for work or personal issues, waiting for a buyer to make a decent offer may leave you carrying the financial responsibility for two homes. You may also have to spend money and time to travel between the two properties. However, by choosing to sell directly to a professional buyer like one from Coachella Valley HomeBuyers who will pay you in cash, there are no financing delays, so your closing date is guaranteed.
