How To Sell Your House Fast For Cash

sell my house fast for cash

Two Routes

There’s the traditional route of selling your house with a realtor, and there’s the fast route. Which would you prefer?

If you really want to sell your house fast for cash, avoid commissions, get a fair offer, and have multiple selling options, working with a real estate investor is the best path to get your home sold.

Traditional Route

A realtor commission is like a marketing fee. You pay them to advertise and walk buyers through your home. When you deal with the home buyer direct, you get to keep that part of the sale. More important, you get to save a lot of your valuable time.

If you’ve had your house listed previously, you know it’s no fun to let your house sit for months on the market wasting time on unqualified buyers. You may get excited after accepting an offer only to be disappointed later when it falls out of escrow because of financing. When you sell the traditional route, you rely on a lot of moving parts.

When you work with a cash home buyer, you’re working with a real estate investor who buys houses for a living. They typically don’t use traditional financing, and can often make you a cash offer.

Working with a realtor can take months. The fastest typical closing is 30 days but may be as much as 60 days. An investor can typically close in 7-10 days if there are no issues with the title.

Fast Route

How relieved would you feel if you knew you could sell your house fast for cash, in as little as a week?

Real estate investors simplify the selling process at no cost to you. They know the market just as well, if not better, than the realtors in the New Orleans area. They can and will give you a fair assessment of your home value, with the research and comparable sales data to back it up.

Most investors will give you a couple offers to choose from: an all cash offer, and a terms offer. Traditional buyers are often limited to conventional financing.

An investor’s ability to creatively finance a property means that you get the money you want quick and easy. When you cut out the middleman, (realtors and banks) the home selling process is simple. It’s the difference between walking outside and pulling a carrot from your garden, and driving to the store to buy one. Which is easier? Which do you prefer?

You don’t have to worry about overly critical report from a Louisiana home inspector.  A cash home buyer will want to inspect the property but they are not worried about little things that don’t impact the value. Depending on the type of deal and timing, the contingencies can even be waived to avoid inspection and financing being a deal breaker.

You can avoid the hassle of advertising the sale of your home yourself, or paying a realtor to do it for you. Those For Sale By Owner (FSBO) signs are magnets for the inexperienced and non-serious home buyer.

Imagine, not having to make a single repair either? Often times, the condition of your house does not matter to a cash home buyer. On the other hand, if you are trying to sell your property to a retail buyer, the potential repairs would be overwhelming enough to kill the sale. Retail buyers don’t want to fix houses. A real estate investor’s job is to fix houses.

Also, contrary to popular belief, most investors are willing and want to help you understand the buying and selling process. They’re in the know, and they want you to be as comfortable as possible during the process.

Investors understand that you want to sell your house fast and don’t have time to wait for your house to sell. They’ll give you honest answers about the price and potential deal structure that will make the most sense for your situation.
