You've heard the ads, and seen the signs on the street corners that say " We buy your home fast"
Close in seven days.
The other day, a homeowner I met with, asked me about this service and how does it work. The homeowner is exactly who these people are hoping to attract. Folks that owe nothing on their home. The home needs updating to bring it into today's times and they have no clue what the home would sell for in today's real estate market.
The owners asked. Is this a service we should consider?
So I said. Let me help you explore all of your options:
- Are you in a hurry to sell? The answer was NO! So there is no critical reason you have to sell. Then you may want to take a step back and do a little more research.
- Is this a property a home you inherited and cannot afford to carry? The answer was NO. They I would do a bit more research. If the answer was yes, then maybe.
- Does your home need a lot of work and you cannot afford to make repairs? The answer was NO. If it were yes, then maybe.
- For those who's mortgage balance is more than eighty percent of today's fair market value then chances are they will not buy your home. These companies typically, buy a home then fix it up and sell the home for a profit. They have formula's they follow. It's a numbers game. If the numbers don't work, they are on to the next prospect.
So the homeowner then asked. So they want to steal my home? I said No. They want to make a fair CASH Offer, with no hassles and you get to move on with your life.
The owner then said, that doesn't work for me. So how do you Sell My Home Fast in today's real estate market without giving away all my equity.
Simple. I have systems in place to help me do that.

In today's online world "Online Marketing Matters!"
Words on this photo speak volumes...to the buyer.
The last thing you want or need when you are selling your home is someone who is going to put a sign in the yard, a lock box on your front door and then they hope and pray a buyer will come.
You need a real estate agent who is a marketing expert. Someone who is going to showcase your home on all the different Online Outlets where today's home buyer is searching for a home. Never under estimate the power of Facebook, Instagram or a Mobile Apps. This is how today's buyers will find your home. People very rarely just drive by your house or come to an Open House and decide your house is the house they want. Home Buyers will search extensively online searching for the perfect home. The way your home shows online can be the determining factor of whether they opt to schedule a showing or not. Getting your home ready to list, is just as important and the agent you choose to market it FOR SALE.
