Are you thinking “what is the best way to sell my house without an agent in Fort Worth”? Following tradition is not always the best choice. Selling with a real estate agent will work for many house sellers but sometimes you have to think outside the box.
Have you ever thought about the advantages of using a real estate investor instead to sell to?
Advantages of Using a Real Estate Investor
Real estate agents are paid representatives to market your home, coordinate showings, and will walk you through the contract and sales process. You pay them a percentage (typically 6%) of the sales price to do this service for you. Also, typically, agents are selling your house to homeowners that are looking for a place to move into. They are looking for homes that are move-in ready. so you need to prepare your home so that it shows well when a prospective buyer comes along.
Investors, unlike real estate agents, are actual buyers and are not buying your house to move in, but are looking at the purchase as a business decision. They don’t get a cut of the sale when they sell your house for you. Instead, they see a potential profit in purchasing your home and they are looking for a good deal where they can purchase your house and still turn a profit in the real estate market. They know what your house will sell for on the market and they may be willing to pay a higher price for your house if they know they can turn a profit. Investors have a positive cash flow that allows them to use this money to invest in the houses that they think will make them the best profit. So dealing with a real estate investor puts you in a position of being able to bargain until you get the best deal. Investors also don’t care what your house looks like, and you don’t need to stage it for them. They know the value of your home and are not bothered by packing boxes, dishes in the sink, or even major repairs. Repairs are not scary, but something investors work with on a regular basis.
Find a Good Investor
Keep in mind that investors will often be the best choice when you are selling your house because they often have the cash on hand to purchase fast. When you sell through an agent, you run the risk of the buyer backing out of the deal at the last minute or losing time during the deal-making process. Investors buy with cash and they can close the deal fast, saving you both time and money.
Using Your Best Judgement
Only you can decide if using a real estate investor is the best choice for you. There are certainly advantages to using an investor because their motivation in buying your home is different than that of a real estate agent. They will also decide quickly if they want to purchase your home or not and they will be aware of the market selling price. There are definitely pros and cons to using an agent as well. If you have time, and your house is already in prime condition, I often advise clients to use an agent. If you have time pressure, or have a house that will not show well, I suggest talking to an investor to see if you can save some stress and time, and still get the price that you need.
You should take your time looking for an investor, however, so that you find one that has a good reputation and will be fair in their dealings with you. Make sure that any investor you deal with has credible references and that they will be honest when they make a deal with you. Most importantly, make sure that the investor has a good record for closing houses at a fair price and quickly. The best advantage to using a real estate investor is that you will get your money fast and you will be able to use this for whatever you need.
