How People are Ditching Realtors for Cash Buyers and How Easy it is
Millions of real estate transactions occur every year in the United States and in other developed countries around the world.
The vast majority of these transactions, at least in the United States, are completed in partnership with real estate agents who are members of the National Association of Realtors (NAR). In other words, these are individuals who are trained in the field of real estate and who earn their living via commissions that are paid at the end of the selling/buying process.
By and large, these trained real estate agents give their clients a value added service that is paid for at the end of the transactions. And they’re generally compensated very well for their efforts.
But while you certainly receive a decent return for your investment when working with licensed Realtors, what if we told you that you could save several thousand dollars when selling your home by bypassing one altogether?
And we’re not talking about putting a “For Sale By Owner” sign in your yard and attempting to weave your way through the real estate process on your own. Some people do that, however, with varying levels of success and failure.
But what we’re contemplating today is selling your home by using a cash buyer, someone who can write a check for your home and let you walk away with cash in your pocket in a much shorter period of time than going through the traditional sales route.
It really is as easy as it sounds, which is why more and more homeowners are taking this path every year in the United States.
The way this type of real estate transaction generally plays out is that the seller will call a company that buys homes for cash in their town or city. This call is usually a result of an advertisement or promotional material the person has seen at one time or another.
The person on the other end of the line will gather information and then schedule a time for an inspector to come out and have a look at the property. After taking notes and snapping some photographs, they’ll put an offer together and present it in writing to the homeowner.
If the offer is accepted or if negotiations need to take place first, this is generally a pretty quick part of the process. Once an agreement is in place, the ball starts rolling toward receiving a settlement date and closing on the sale.
On average, cash sales move much quicker through the system. The reason is obvious – there are no banks and red tape to deal with.
You have an agreement in place, you show up at the settlement table, you sign the papers and you walk away with a nice, fat check in your pocket at the end of the day.
We make this entire process sound quite easy because it really is quite easy. The hardest part is taking that first step and meeting with a qualified representative who can help guide you through every step of the selling process.
This home-selling method is really becoming the most modern and least complicated way of selling real estate in the United States.
If you have a home you want to sell, you owe it to yourself to look into the cash buyer option before making any final decisions on selling your home.
We think you’ll find it just as easy as what we’ve described here today.
