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. I must confess that this is the best thing that ever happened in the real estate industry because it makes things significantly easier today. I would encourage anybody else who would like to sell their home free from the stress that comes with refurbishments, showing their home to potential buyers, and closing the sale to follow the same path.
First, I reviewed my property to find out how much money I could ask for it. I was fortunate to get these details easily because all I needed to do was ask a friend of mine who works in real estate to help me. However, you can consult a valuer to help you out or do an independent research on your own. 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.
After that, I asked many people if they knew someone who had sold their house through the same method and I reviewed those which had advertised their business on the Internet. In the end, I had a list of five firms that had impressed me, so I decided to visit all of them to make a cut. When I visited those companies, I enquired more about their processes and evaluated them based on how they handled me and whether I felt they would be efficient. 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. Having done a proper evaluation made it easy for the bidding process because the value at which I was willing to sell my house was sensible and I made sure that I used some sales and marketing techniques to ensure that I got what I wanted. 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. Within five days, I had packed everything to clear the house for the buyer and received the value for my house in full. I didn’t have to follow up a lot for the transaction to be finalized because everything was flawless.
