No Real Estate
I once listed a granny house with a seller who was a real challenge. She wanted it sold immediately for top dollar. But the place had a whole lot of deferred maintenance, a kitchen that was completely renovated in 1942, and it smelled like Marlboros and kitty litter. And it didn't fly off the shelf.
Then I started to get calls about a sign she'd seen while she was out grocery shopping.
We see them stapled to telephone poles all over town.
These guys will make it really, really easy for you to sell your house. They will pay you all cash money for it and settle ion a nanosecond.
No fixing the place up. No repairs are necessary.
Oh! And you'll save the commission, too!
Sounds like a deal, right?
And with each call, I had to explain the way these guys work:
It's all about the price. Bottom line? Yours will be really, really low.
It's important to keep in mind that these home buyers are professionals. These investors are looking only for situations where they can go in, do a few renovations and flip the place and make a big profit. And sure, you're not paying a commission, but you are also not being represented during the negotiations.
My anxious client's house eventually sold "as is" in the $900,000 range, and she eventually confessed that she called one of these numbers and the guy offered her about half of that. So when we settled, she paid me a commission. A big one. But the check that she got from the title company was a whole lot more than what she'd have netted from the WE'LL BUY YOUR HOUSE guys.
