Selling your house these days looks a little different than it did just a few years ago… We’ve had new technologies and innovative solutions emerge, and let’s face it, everything changed after COVID… In this competitive market, with so many people looking and wanting to buy a house, you should know a few things before selling.
And now, sellers have more options than ever when it comes time to sell, and here are 3 things you should know about when selling your house these days… So then, here are 3 things you need to know about selling your house in Roseburg in 2023.
You Don’t Always Need To List Your House With An Agent
Hiring a real estate agent in Roseburg can be highly beneficial for most homeowners, and as a licensed real estate broker, I can tell you that most real estate transactions involve a licensed real estate broker… but it’s not always necessary to list your house.
Of course, if you’re selling a move-in ready, turn-key house… or one that’s close to move-in ready and turn-key condition… one that doesn’t need a bunch of repairs or maintenance to make it financeable… then listing your house with an agent is probably your best choice, and I can help you with that.
But what if you’re in a difficult situation? Maybe you’re selling a fixer house or one with a lot of needed maintenance or repairs? Or, what if you’re dealing with an unwanted property, a probate or inherited property, a pre-foreclosure, or a bad tenant situation? Sometimes it’s best to list even these kinds of properties, but it’s not always necessary.
Under some circumstances, selling your house through a direct sale to a reputable company or private buyer would prove to be more beneficial. Before signing a listing contract, consider some of the benefits and detriments of each process. And, as a real estate broker, I am always available to answer specific questions for you as well.
- Listing: Commissions vs. No Commission when selling direct.
- Listing: Dealing with showings can be difficult with homes in disrepair or with troubled tenants. Direct buyers work around these situations.
- Listing: Staging, preparing the home for photography, etc. vs. direct buyer – none of this is necessary, it’s an as-is sale.
- Listing: There is no guaranteed sale date. Depending on the market timing, buyer demand, and interest rates, you could be waiting for a long time to find a qualified buyer… vs. a cash direct sale that can close in 1-2 weeks.
- Listing: Your sale can fall through at the last minute because of a low appraisal, bad home inspection, or fickle buyer… vs. direct sale – it’s all cash with no bank involved.
- Listing: Closing costs can be expensive, in many cases about 2-3% of the final sale price + possible seller credits of another 2-5% of the sale price to pay the buyer’s closing costs and prepaids. Direct: None.
- Listing: You may be on the hook for repairs after the inspection period. Often times buyers ask for repairs to be done after the inspection report is received. A direct sale is an as-is sale.
- Listing: It can take a while for the closing to occur, usually 30-60 days. This can easily cost you a few thousand in interest and payments. Direct sale is fast, sometimes in less than a week.
- Listing: It’s not uncommon to have a delay in closing. This, again costs you in the end. A direct sale happens in your time frame.
While the process can work for some homeowners, others are better off saving time and money with a direct sale. When you work with our team, you can avoid all of the costs and hassles listed above. Sky Real Estate Investments is working with homeowners throughout the Roseburg area and is happy to make you a fair, no-obligation offer for your property no matter the condition or situation.
Watch Out For Out Of Town Buyers, Internet Buyers And Wholesalers.
It’s true, most homeowners turn to the internet and some even sell to the “newest trend,” iBuyers, but this solution rarely produces the results that home sellers were looking for. Many of these buyers are not even from the Roseburg area and are not able to accurately put together a fair offer.
So be careful if you’re considering selling your house to one of these buyers. Most of the time the offers they produce are quite low – usually much lower than a listing or direct sale price. Probably because iBuyers have a certain quota to hit.
And then there are the wholesalers. I can speak from my own experience with wholesalers when I say that more often than not, a wholesaler doesn’t really have the cash to close the sale. This may surprise you but if you sign a contract with a wholesaler, chances are your sale is completely dependent on the wholesaler selling your offer to another investor. This is how most of them make their money.
Many out-of-town buyers, iBuyers, and wholesalers are solely looking for profits, while we are more interested in helping people with difficult properties and situations. We are a local family who truly cares about the community of Roseburg. Our offers are always honest, fair, and designed to help homeowners when they need it most.
Selling Your House Doesn’t Have To Cost You A Lot Of Money
One of the biggest challenges sellers face is preparing the home for the market. Depending on your selling goals, you can put some time and money into updates, maintenance, repairs, and staging or, if you’re looking for a fast and easy sale, a direct sale might be a good choice… because it’s a cash-as-is sale. This works great when the home is in less than move-in condition.
Listing vs. selling direct, there are more ways than one to sell your house in Roseburg. When you work with Sky Real Estate Investments, you will be able to sell your house directly. No need to market or stage the home. And, with the exception of showing us the home to evaluate the renovation, you won’t need to “show” the house.
In addition, when selling your house directly, you will not have to repair the property or wait around to find a qualified buyer, and you won’t have any surprise repairs after a home inspection. When listing your house in Roseburg, the costs can add up, but it still might be the best route. The bottom line, we won’t know until we gather the information.
You can avoid some or most of the costs with a fast and direct sale of your Roseburg home.
