I used to think that people used to joke about selling their houses fast for cash, until I actually did it myself after getting some tips from articles on the Internet. Let me say that this is the best thing that was ever introduced in real estate because it is quite a relief to many people trying to sell their homes. I would advise the same approach for anybody who wants to sell their house, but is not ready to deal with the stress that renovations, shows, and processes to close the sale.
First, I evaluated my house to find out how much I could sell it for. I was lucky because I have a friend in real estate who worked out the details, making it easier for me. Nevertheless, you may also ask a valuer to help you out or carry out the research individually. All that you need to do is to take into account; the prices of the houses sold for the last 12 months in your region, the size of your house, the features of your home, the condition that it is in, how much it cost you to buy it, and any value you have added to it. This will guide you to choose a competitive value that will be fair to both you and the buyer, and prevent making losses.
Next, I looked around to see if I could get referrals from people and also searched on the Internet to locate companies which were marketing themselves. From the many suggestions I could find, I chose five companies that I felt were convenient for me and arranged to visit them. When I went to their premises, I asked many questions about their processes and assessed them against my initial experience with them and chances of efficiency. I chose three of them to move forward with, and invited them to my home for the assessment.
Before the real estate investors set foot on my property, I did all those simple things that you can do to make your house more attractive other than renovating. The fact that I had already assessed my property’s worth enabled me to quote a sensible price which made the bidding process easier and I also utilized sales and marketing techniques to end up with the value that I felt I deserved. All the offers I got seemed fair, but I chose the one which gave me the most cash and a better promise about the process. I vacated within five days, having received the full value for my home. I didn’t have to follow up a lot for the transaction to be finalized because everything was flawless.
