Benefits of Selling to Independent Property Investors
Better Off Home Buyers is a well-established independent property investment company, which has helped numerous clients to resolve their real-life real estate issues, and move on to a better future.
Here are the most important benefits of selling to an investment company like Better Off Home Buyers:
Benefits of Selling to Independent Property Investors
|1. Investors Buy Homes As-Is||Realtors, as opposed to investors, will insist on full repairs if your house is run-down or requires work. Normally, you will have to carry out these repairs before they will list and market the property. |
However, investors will never require that of you. When they purchase your home, they do so “as-is.” Any need for repairs is reflected in their cash offer.
|2. Investors Can Help with Foreclosure||In most states, the foreclosure period is around 90 days. There’s no guarantee that the realtor you select will be able to sell your home before your time is up. Investors regularly purchase homes in foreclosure. |
They’ll be able to help you to arrange a “short sale,” and close the deal before the foreclosure period comes to an end.
|3. Investors Buy Homes in Bad Neighborhoods||If your neighborhood has gone downhill, it will be difficult to find a buyer interested in your home. Even the best realtors can struggle to sell homes in high-crime areas. Investors do not live in the houses they buy. |
They don’t care about your neighbors or where the home is located. Their goal is to purchase your home, so they’ll be able to find a buyer who won’t care either.
|4. You’ll Never Have to Relist||When you work with a realtor to sell your house, you enter into an agreement that there is a set amount of time to sell your home. If the home doesn’t sell before the period expires, you have to relist with the same agent, or restart the process and find a new agent who is better equipped for the job. |
The investor purchases the home directly from you, and what happens next lies solely in the hands of the investor. They’ll find a regular market buyer after they’ve prepared the property for sale.
|5. Investors Pay 100% in Cash||Realtors can find you people who want to buy your home, but they can’t fund that buyer. The majority of buyers need loan approval from a financial institution in order to purchase your home. Sometimes, no approval is forthcoming, and the process has to start again. Investors have their own money. |
They purchase homes completely in cash, and they’ll never need to be approved for a loan. In this respect, an all-cash purchase makes the sale process so much easier.
|6. The Market Doesn’t Matter||A realtor’s success rate largely depends on the housing market in the area of the home they’re trying to sell. Investors will buy your home, and make it attractive enough to sell in a rough market, or wait it out until the market stabilizes. They’ll wait so you don’t have to.|
|7. No Complicated Paperwork||When you sell your house with a realtor, there is a mountain of paperwork – this is because you’re not only dealing with your realtor, but also the buyer and their agent. |
When you work with an investor, this doesn’t happen. Investors buy directly from you, and there are no third parties to satisfy. This drastically reduces the amount of necessary paperwork.
|8. No Commission Fees||Realtors don’t work for free. The average realtor will take a 6% commission on the sale of your home. In most cases, this is over $15,000.|
There’s no reason to deal with commission fees when you’re working with an investor. Nobody needs a cut of the sale.
|9. No Closing Costs||The closing process can really rack up costs. An investor cuts a large part of that process out. The closing becomes the investor’s responsibility, and they’ll pay for anything that comes up during that time period.|
|10. Quick Closing Process||All of these benefits – the lack of agents, commissions, closing paperwork, and loans – allows an investor to jump from point A to point B very quickly. An investor can close on your home in a week. There’s no more waiting involved.|
Selling to Independent Property Investors: The Simple Process
In virtually every U.S. city, there are independent real estate investors who buy houses and either fix them up and sell them, hold onto them as a rental property, or sell them to other real estate investors who will hold them as rental properties.
The general process of selling your house to a real estate investor is simple, as you can see..
|You connect with the investor and submit information about your house and your situation to them.|
|Investors will evaluate the house, arrive at a value for it, determine if any repairs are needed, and make an offer that both fits their buying criteria – and helps you to achieve your goals.|
|You look at the offer and decide if it works for you.|
|If it’s a fit, closing takes place at a title company, and the title company prepares all the documents. The investor buys with cash, meaning it’s a quick close, and you get your cash quickly.|
|The house sale is complete.|
Sell Your House: No “One-Size-Fits-All” Solution
In the end, when it comes to selling your house, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. If you are in no particular hurry to sell your house, perhaps selling your own home without using a real estate agent (or “For Sale By Owner” – abbreviated to FSBO) could be worth the trouble.
However, if you’re happy to wait around 4-6 months, other than simply wanting to move on with the next chapter in your life, perhaps the traditional real estate agent route is the best option for you to go.
If, on the other hand, you do definitely need or want to sell quickly, working with an independent property investor could very well benefit you both.
Perhaps you’re in foreclosure, or you inherited the house and just don’t want the hassle, or you’re moving, or you already bought a new house and simply can’t handle two payments anymore, or any other situation that calls for a fast and no hassle house sale… get in contact with us and see if Better off Home Buyers ticks all your boxes, and meets your needs.
FAQs: Selling Your House to Independent Property Investment Companies
Here are the most commonly asked questions and online searches that people have needed the answer to. However, if you have a question that is not featured here, please feel free to get in touch and ask us directly.
|1. What type of homeowners can benefit from selling to property investors?|
The strategy of selling your house to a property investor is extremely useful for those sellers who are willing to sacrifice a little equity in exchange for a fast, convenient sale with no hassles.
If you need to sell quickly – and we’re talking days or weeks rather than months – investors can close quickly, thus providing the perfect solution.
However, like anything, apply your due diligence by doing your research. It’s very important that you trust the investor you’re working with, and that they have a stellar reputation.
Owners who benefit from selling to a property investor have usually found themselves in one of the following situations:
|Problem tenants||Bankruptcy||Code violations|
|Inherited property||Outdated property||Pre-foreclosure|
|Probate||Rundown (repairs)||Tax defaults|
|2. Do property investors deliberately make low offers?|
The sale price you are offered by a property investor is dependent upon several factors, including:
- The condition of the property
- Its true market value
- The date you need to sell by (latest), and
- The type of investor you’re dealing with
There are 3 basic types of property investors: House flippers, rental property investors, and regular investors.
- Flippers work like this: They come in, buy the property, carry out repairs and updating, and then look to sell the house on quickly.
They will usually pay around 70-75% of the property’s value after these necessary repairs have been completed. Their offer will estimate how much they can sell the house for after flipping – minus their repairs.
- Rental property investors, on the other hand, prefer properties that require minor or no repairs – they are looking to rent out the house as soon as possible.
They normally give you an offer that provides them with a monthly income of 1% of the purchase price. If your property is in top shape and in a high-rent area, you may even get its market value.
- Regular investors, like Better Off Home Buyers, will do either of these things – flip or rent – or they may hold onto the property for other reasons.
|3. Can I sell my house virtually (where everything is done online)?|
Yes, if you would prefer a virtual sale, many property investors (including Better Off Home Buyers) are capable of providing that service. They may ask you to do a video tour and send detailed photographs of the property so that they can assess its condition and value. All documents can be exchanged and signed electronically, and your cash offer wired to your preferred online account.
|4. I know I’ll receive my payment in cash, but what deductions should I expect?|
With a property investor, there are no hidden deductions. Unlike when selling through a real estate agency, which expects you to pay a 3-6% commission, selling to an investor means completely avoiding fees and closing costs altogether.
|5. How long do I have to wait for my cash payment?|
You receive your cash offer in full at closing.
|6. Do I still need to do repairs and clean the house up before I leave?|
Absolutely not. Any repair costs will have been factored into your offer prior to being made, and there is definitely no need to clean up the house whatsoever before you leave. Simply take what you want with you, and leave the rest.
