Dont be Tempted by We Buy Houses (Updated)
Do you want to sell your home right away? Don't be tempted by "We Buy Houses" or "Sell Your House in 9 days for Cash" ads and billboards.
Savvy real estate investors run these ads and put up posters looking for sellers under duress. These investors want to make the money you earned for holding your home. Investors only want to pay you up to seventy percent of the (low end) market value. Many investors who studied late night infomercial real estate scams want you to be their bank and carry the financing.
You do not need to be at the mercy of these scavengers. Selling you home is stressful enough without worrying about getting a fair price.
As a real estate investor who looks for distressed houses with desperate sellers, I give you the following tips for getting fair market value for your home quickly.
For Sellers with No Money to Spend:
Start at the street and clean up the weeds
For Sellers with a Little Cash:
Spend your money wisely on enhancements that boost net proceeds
Redecorating your home and adding upgrades for the potential buyer's profile brings you the greatest return for your money. Then, you retain your equity and sell your home at full market value to a motivated buyer.
