One of the first things that come up when thinking about selling your house in Roseburg is pricing and how much you will be able to net from the sale of your home. You can set an initial asking price but should consider selling costs and how long it will take for the sale to finalize.
There are many things you will need to factor in before signing any offers. That said, by using a few little-known hacks, getting your asking price can be a little easier when selling your house in Roseburg.
List With A Real Estate Agent In Roseburg
By far the most common way people sell their house, and one of your options is listing your house with an agent in Roseburg. In fact, less than 10% of the home sales in the US last year were done by owner without an agent. If your agent does their job, this is one way to get your asking price.
However, in some situations, you may need to make repairs, upgrades, stage the home for potential buyers, or maybe you inherited the home and don’t live nearby. You are probably aware that when you sell through an agent, there are certain fees, commissions, selling costs such as repairs, marketing, closing expenses, and sometimes seller’s concessions to buyers.
Just make sure you factor in all of these costs when setting your price. It will add up quickly and often catches home sellers by surprise. Not to say that you can just add all the cost to the price willy-nilly and expect the home to sell, but you need to make sure you have all the information when setting the asking price.
While hiring a Roseburg real estate agent is the route most homeowners choose, it can be a tad more expensive and stressful. There are no guarantees that your house will sell or that you won’t run into repairs or a failed sale or two along the way. Remember that what you list for, will not always be what you sell for, and your net at close will be less as well.
Disclosure: I am a licensed real estate broker in Oregon… and I am a cash investor. I am writing this post to show both sides of the equation so you can make an informed decision of which route is best… list it -or sell it direct.
Sell Your House Directly To A Professional Cash Homebuyer
Working with a professional cash homebuyer is another way you may be able to get your asking price when selling your house in Roseburg. Once you have a clear understanding of the current market conditions and the work your home may need, it’s time to set an asking price.
Consider what your selling goals are and the ways a direct sale can help you get there. When selling your house directly, you can avoid repair costs, closing costs, and agent commissions. You will also potentially save thousands in holding costs as a direct sale often happens pretty quickly. We can, for instance usually close in a week or less.
It is true that an investor’s offer will be less than what you see on the MLS, but once all of the expenses are factored in, your profits may not be as far off as you might have thought. Don’t rule out a direct sale of your Roseburg property until you speak with my wife, Jennifer, or myself.
We will never pressure anyone into a selling method that isn’t right for them. We just lay out the values and options of each and let you decide.
Utilize Owner Financing To Create Income And Security
We offer many different creative ways to help homeowners with problem properties that they no longer wish to own. One solution we offer is to buy a property using owner financing. This allows us to purchase the property right away, while the property owner receives a down payment and guaranteed check each month while we pay off the property.
The property owner essentially becomes the bank, collecting interest and holding the title. The loan would be structured just like a bank… a note secured by a First Trust Deed in favor of the seller. You would have security as the first-place lienholder.
Sometimes cash is better and sometimes not. You might check with your tax professional to ask about the benefits and detriments of both. We would love to work with you to find a creative solution for selling, which also allows you to receive your asking price. Each situation is unique and we are happy to work with you to help you find the solution that best helps you reach your goals.
