Today, there are many ways to sell a house, and the best option for you will depend on your unique circumstances. To help you figure out the best-selling method for you, here’s a rundown of your options, as well as the pros and cons of each.
List with a real estate agent. Hiring a real estate agent or broker to sell your home is the tried-and-true method that tends to net the highest profit, despite the commission paid. An agent, like myself, can create a custom marketing plan, get the word out to many buyers, and assist you through the entire home-selling process. And, most important, do everything possible to keep you out of litigation and in compliance. While you pay a commission for an agent’s services (often a percentage of your home’s sales price), it may be money well-spent since listing with an agent can help you fetch a high price for your home. Call me and I’ll show you what I can do to help you.
Sell to a partner iBuyer. I have many relationships with iBuyers (i.e. investors) and other companies. We can offer you various ways to sell your home. An iBuyer/investor is a company/individual with the financial means to purchase your home in cash. While their offers are generally competitive (based on the sales price of similar properties in your area), the price WILL NOT be as high as what you’d get on the open market with a real estate agent’s expertise. Still, the speed, convenience, and control you gain from an iBuyer may be worth every penny, as it allows you to consider the following options:
- Sell fast and with ease. If you need to sell quickly to move for a new job or other reason, an iBuyer allows you to sell quickly. iBuying transactions can happen entirely online and in a matter of days.
- Sell now, move later. While iBuying transactions can happen quickly, you can also take longer and choose your closing date, which is helpful if you want to avoid moving twice. An iBuyer may allow you to stay in your current home until you buy a new home and are ready to move or maybe have tenants that need more time to move.
- Buy now, sell later. See a new home you want to buy right now, but don’t want to carry two mortgages at once? Our partner lender can help convert your home equity into cash. This may enable you to make a competitive offer on a new home that’s not contingent on the sale of your current home, or even whether it’s listed yet.
- Sell in any condition. If your property is damaged, run-down, or facing foreclosure, an iBuyer may be willing to buy your home as is, offloading the burden of making repairs or renovations.
