Please Help, I Need To Sell My House Fast


There are so many reasons that may occur, that could cause you to sell your house fast. It is a very nerve racking thing to have to go though. Zillow has an article that talks about how to reduce the stress of selling a home. There are so many things that come to mind when needing to sell including, how quickly can you go to closing, what’s the minimal price that you need to walk away with, what offer are you going to accept, are repairs needed, and many other things.

But if you’re telling yourself “I need to sell my house fast”, there are cash home buyers that can close in a matter of weeks. They have many benefits other than closing fast, for example they pay all closing, buy your house as is, and no realtor commission.

Most think that if they contact a real estate agent, that they can’t close quick. There are many agents that have relationships with these cash home buyers. They dealt with them in the past and know that they will close fast, and the sell will happen. Not all cash home buyers are equal. Some are very new to the industry and can’t close at all or can’t do it in the required time. This is very stressful for the homeowner who needs to sell fast in the first place. The wrong buyer will cause the process to start all over.

There are some ways you can help yourself make a good choice when going in this direction. Make sure the company you do business with has a website. Check with your state business site, to see If the company is in good standing. Look online to see what reviews previous homeowners have wrote.

If your underwater on your house, these companies have other options. There able to take over the payments to prevent you from having a foreclosure on your credit report. This is a win for both parties also. The only downfall is there’s normally a contract dictating how many years until they will refinance out of your loan. This could prevent you from obtaining another loan for years.

Another option is talk to relatives to buy your house as an investment property. This would still cause you to either leave the existing mortgage in place or you’d need enough equality for them to qualify for the loan, not to mention the condition of the house.

Make sure you don’t take too long to take action, if you need to sell your house fast. There are options for you, but no one is going to hand deliver them to you.

Forget zillow, which is a non-professional entity, and call a professional Real Estate agent if you really want to sell

Welcome to Active Rain, a great place to learn, share, and network.  Be leery of letting someone else take over your loan payments.  It can often lead to aking the situation worse, much worse. I also concur with William Feela's comment; don't count on Zillow.

We buy houses fast and in cash.

Taking over someone payment normally is the last result for the person. They may have weeks til foreclosure, if they're unable to pay the past due amounts. An invester or cash buyer would take the title, pay the past due amount and then make the payments for some years until refinancing. This would save the person from a foreclosure on their record.  Again this is usually a last result.
