1) Price it right
2) Be honest
3) Be flexible
Price it right – When selling to a cash house buyer, keep in mind that we’re buying with cash, instead of using bank financing… and we can close very quickly. We can buy your house in as little as 7 days if you want to sell that quickly… rather than waiting 30-120 days to sell your house the traditional listing agent route.
This also means that you’re getting a quick/ hassle free sale and cash in your pocket so you can move on with your life!
So don’t go into the process with expectations of getting the same price on a quick cash sale that closes in a matter of days or weeks that you’d get with an agent listing your house to find the ideal retail buyer for months and months and months.
Also consider in your pricing the fact that local cash home buyers like us here at Skye Homes don’t charge any fees or commissions. So consider that a savings right there!
Be honest – Always tell the truth when giving descriptions of repairs and values. An experienced cash buyer will do their homework, so tarnishing a relationship and potentially hindering a sale in the name of saving a few bucks, is never worth it. Just be honest with your buyer and they will work with you.
Be flexible – Cash house buyers can often come up with creative solutions to your problems. Be flexible, and willing to share and listen to make the best of your situation.
After talking to many sellers, we’ll sometimes find out that there are other options that make a lot more sense for them… rather than us buying their house.
We’ll let you know what we feel are the best options for your situation. If it means us buying your house is a win-win transaction… great! If it means you are selling your house another way (or even finding a way to stay in your house)… great!
