Shots fired in the WAR against WE WILL PAY YOU CASH FOR YOUR HOME

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Godzyk Real Estate Services NH License 033394

In the past I have shared stories about meeting home sellers whose homes needed work. They needed to sell quick for various reasons. They then called the "WE PAY CASH FOR YOUR HOME" people. Some were promptly offered a half price offer on their home.

 

The stories with happy endings are usually where a family member, friend, co-worker or their lawyer stepped in and slowed them down. Many times that is when i get a call and then asked how much their home is worth and how fast could i sell it. Many of these sellers find out we can get them $30,000, $40,000 or even $70,000 more than they were offered. There are many factors that affect value and I point them out.

 

Today the "Pay cash for homes" people started to fight back. Sending emails with links to articles and "you tubes" of why they are valuable to the industry. Then came the phone call "why i hate them?" 

 

It is not that I hate them, this is America and they can run their business any way they see fit. They are providing a service. I let them know that I too provide a service. There service is buy low and sell high MY SERVICE is let the seller know what their home is worth in today's market. How much they may get with a quick sale. How much they may get traditionally and how much more they get if they complete a variety of repairs. It is the sellers choice and need. I see death, sickness's and divorce. I see homes needing work and those almost falling down. I also let them know i work with a couple of "we pay cash for homes" people who refer me listings. They know that the seller can get more and they are happy with a referral and knowing they did not take advantage of the seller. 

 

In the end I can find a buyer for any home. Giving the seller options is better in nearly all cases than taking half price. Closing when the seller needs is what we do. Helping them through each step of the selling process is also what we do. 

 

 

IF YOU ARE THINKING OF SELLING YOUR HOME, DO NOT FALL FOR FLUFF. Do not fall for promises to good to be true. There are no short cuts when it comes to selling your home 

 

 

I now share with every consumer that my philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.

Good morning, Scott Godzyk I can't believe how people can fall for that cash deal stuff and don't realize the money they're leaving on the table..... this is another reason those in the Manchester NH area would be very very wise to call you for guidance....

If they were members of NAR and followed the Code of Ethics that would be a violation of ethics to purposefully say a home is worth that much less.

Hi Scott- when it's too good to be true...it typically is. Get an expert, such as yourself, and maximize the investment you have in your home.

It happens often Barbara Todaro and many sellers dont realize until they start telling others what they did. Only if i  could reach them before. That is my plan to try to reach more earlier

Hi Scott and Happy Valentine's Day!

Ironically, seconds ago I received a TEXT with some stranger wanting to buy my home. For years I had Voice Retrieval Services which provided me with a different number forwarded to my private number. Since it was set up in 2003, I wasn't getting solicitation through text because it didn't exist in 2003 and when someone tried to text me using that number, I never knew they were trying to reach me. In December of 2019, I cancelled Voice Retrieval. 

The point is, you're right! The people who offer to pay for cash who you don't even know are like pests you can't get rid of, if you try! It's not that I hate them, I just don't know who they are and why they are trampling into the real estate investment world any way they can. Unless I know an investor personally, I'm not going to give them my time of day. And I don't believe it is the professional way to do business.

You, Scott, are a true professional!

We go through cycles here in Sacramento, when we see those "We Pay Cash For Your Home" signs posted on light posts around town.  I always cringe!
