What is selling your house direct and what are some mistakes to avoid when selling your house directly? Basically selling direct just means you’re skipping the listing and selling your house directly to a cash buyer.
Selling your house directly circumvents the traditional home sales method and has become more common than in the past for several reasons but most of all, it’s fast and easy and requires no repairs.
Typically, the homeowner desires to cut out the hassles, commissions, repair costs, and buyer haggling that usually come with the traditional selling process, not to mention keeping the house ready for showings.
If time is a motivating factor due to financial stress after a life or job status change, or maybe a health or another personal matter is forcing the sale, selling your house directly to a cash investor might be a good choice.
And, sometimes the ease, speed, and convenience of the process is just more attractive than the full listing route. No matter the challenges you face with selling, a direct sale may be your solution.
Is selling directly the best solution for everyone 100% of the time? Not at all, but it certainly is for some people, depending on their situation. And, as a licensed real estate broker and owner of the Sky Team at KW Realty, I can do both and I am happy to compare your options and net difference for you.
By taking the time to understand the most common errors sellers make, you can put yourself in the driver’s seat and feel secure about the method you choose to sell your home. So read on as I share some common mistakes to avoid when selling your house directly in Roseburg.
While the emotional value you place on your home is understandable, it never equates to the current market value, which makes it a fairly common mistake and one you should avoid when selling your house directly in Roseburg.
Instead, you can better understand the current market value of your home by comparing it to recently sold properties that are the most like and nearest yours. Then, of course, you’ll need to make adjustments, up or down, for the value of any property differences.
I am happy to provide you with current market data which includes active listings, pending sales, and recently closed transactions in your neighborhood. Contact me here.
There are several other factors involved in estimating a real value of a home… and Zillo’s Zestimates is usually wrong… Other things we need to consider is the property’s location, style, age, updates, liveability, and its conformity to the neighborhood. It’s important that you, as the sellers educate yourself about the market, trends, and pricing so you know you’re getting a fair deal.
At Sky Real Estate Investments, we help you understand the current market value of your house and compare what you could profit from with a traditional listing so you’re well-informed. Then, if it’s a win-win, we make you an offer.
Another plus of working with Sky Real Estate Investments is that you won’t incur any expenses for prepping and repairs because we buy houses as-is for cash.
Another thing you should avoid when selling your house directly in Roseburg is not getting everything in writing, especially oral agreements. As a licensed real estate agent, I can tell you that not all “investors” are really capable of buying, and many tie the property up, both verbally or in writing, and never complete the sale.
So be careful. Enforcing these agreements without having the details written out can be challenging. With good communication and by keeping everything spelled out clearly in writing, you’ll avoid conflicts and misunderstandings and ensure each party is on the same page with the expectations and responsibilities placed upon them therein.
We always lay out the details of the contract in writing and never pressure sellers to sign quickly before your attorney can review the document. That’s just how we work.
In addition, we provide a guaranteed closing date, often in just days. Of course, we can work around the seller’s time frame if that’s too fast, allowing you to set the most convenient closing date.
Another plus of working with the Sky Real Estate Investments is that you won’t pay any buyer’s closing costs because it’s cash and we have a great streamlined process.
Not taking the time to research the cash investor you select to work with is another thing you should avoid when selling your house directly in Roseburg. It’s essential to check the background, track records, and credentials to ensure they’re legitimate.
