Get Your House Ready For A Sale
Make repairs and thoroughly clean your house to prepare for a listing with an agent. You should also consider storage, landscaping, staging, and making sure that it can compete with other houses on the market in your area. These costs can add up quickly, especially if there’s a lot of work to do!
Market The House
A professional will help you market the house effectively. The levels of service offered by an agent differs. You may get help with some of the following, but you will be on your own for others. Great marketing begins with great photos. Investing in professional photos can go a long way toward the sale of your house. You will also want to list the property on sites and in publications that are read by your potential buyers. In addition, don’t forget word of mouth marketing. Inform everyone you know that your house is for sale—you never know who might be interested!
Find A Buyer
A listing doesn’t guarantee a buyer. Weeks or months may pass before a strong buyer comes around, during which you will need to continue keeping the house neat and tidy. Once you find a buyer, they will do a home inspection and have the house appraised by their lender. For the bank to close on the loan, the house needs to be appraised at your asking price. Sales often fall through at this point. However, if you choose a direct sale, you don’t have to worry about this. We have cash in hand to purchase your property, and do not need an approval or a loan from the bank!
Once the home inspection is completed, the potential buyer will probably want to negotiate anything that showed up on the report. You will either fix these items or provide credit for the new homeowner to make the repairs on their own. This negotiation can greatly affect the final sale price of the property. By selling directly to U.S. Direct Home Buyers, you don’t have to make any repairs or worry about the price being negotiated.
Once the negotiations are complete, the closing process begins. It can take weeks for the bank to fund the loan, which requires a lot of waiting while the property sits in escrow.
With a direct sale, selling your house is a much simpler process. U.S. Direct Home Buyers would love the opportunity to make you a direct cash offer on your property right now!
