Are you a Home Seller and want to get the most money for your home in your pocket and sell at the highest market price? Or do you want to sell the home fast with no showings to a IBuyer (Instant Buyer for cash)? (Photo: Pixabay)
Most Money in Your Pocket as a Seller or Convenience of No Showings
Have you been approached by IBuyers (Instantl Buyers) that will buy your home for CASH only to immediately FLIP it in order make a large profit for themselves? Even Realtors® get similar inquiries about our own homes. Remember, IBuyers are doing this to make a profit off of your home after they buy it from you. Note, your REALTOR® (ME) will make sure that YOU make the profit and not the IBuyer.
If your home is a real fixer upper and not safe to show you may want a cash offer from an IBuyer says Jeff Masich showing such a home, but most homes are not like this and you should get the highest price by showing your home to qualified buyers in a hot market with a shortage of homes available.
There are a shortage of homes on the market so it will go fast most likely. However the way to sell for the highers price is to put the home in front of as many qualified buyers that will compete against each other to get the highest price on the open market. An IBuyer does not want a home seller to do this because they want the home at a below market price using the convenience of a cash offer with no showings.
(Instant BUYER) A real estate company that buys homes from sellers who sign up online. After receiving a description of the property, the iBuyer makes an offer to the seller within a couple days, which may even include the cost of moving.
Why do people sacrifice their hard earned equity in their homes only to give it away to an IBuyer? Well some say they have pets or kids and the home is too difficult for them to show or to keep clean. Or showing the home is a perceived hassle with appointments for showings.
"Remember, INSTANT COFFEE is not as good as REAL brewed coffee. Same as selling your home an INSTANT IBUYER is not as profitable or lucrative as a REAL REALTOR....ME. Use the REAL THING!" ...Jeff Masich, REALTOR®
Treat yourself by KEEPING THE PROFIT given away to IBuyer)
There are ways around those things. I highly recommend using me as your professional REALTOR® to sell your home for the highest possible price and put that money into your own pocket. Use the extra proceeds for your next home or a temporary boarding for Fido or a professional cleaning service to get your home to shine while it is on the market. Or take a mini vacation while the home is on the market with your extra proceeds not given away to the IBuyer. After all with the shortage of homes in the Phoenix metro they typically are not on the market for long.

MLS also means "More Lucrative Sale" of a home to set "True Market Value" in front of qualified buyers
What is Supply and Demand you may ask? "In classical economic theory, the relation between these two factors determines the price of a commodity. This relationship is thought to be the driving force in a free market. As demand for an item increases, prices rise....per Dictionary.com)
Therefore if you have many buyers seeing the home that are qualified to make a purchase, the price of that item (the home being sold) will rise.
For a Seller that believes they will save on a real estate commission by listing their home as "For Sale By Owner" will find they may save on a commission but fall far short in their Seller proceeds on the sale by selling the home at a much lower price than if there were many Buyers seeing the home. The more Buyers and qualified Buyers (important) will cause the price of the home to rise.
Think about it. A seller sticks a For Sale By Owner sign in front of their house and advertises it to avoid a commission. Who will see this ad. Well maybe some of the public or flippers. Both are looking for low ball purchases that they can move into or flip. Think about it. A Buyer does not pay a Real Estate agent usually. If they were going to buy a home, why would they go to a For Sale By Owner home other than trying to get a low ball offer. Separately, these low ball cash Buyers are trying to buy a home at the lowest possible price in order to do a fix and flip for a profit. The Buyer and not the Seller is going to ultimately reap the reward of selling at the true market price. Where will the cash Buyer sell the home after the fix up is complete? Well on the MLS of course for a More Lucrative Sale at the true market price.
Besides the benefits of a More Lucrative Sale on the MLS, the Seller's agent and the Buyer's agent are skilled and will write a professional contract to close quickly and smoothly. The Seller's agent will use the MLS and a lockbox to attract the qualified Buyer with a lockbox showing. People seeing a Seller's home will be known taking the risk out of the transaction of unknown parties calling a For Sale By Owner to schedule a showing. Who are these people coming to the home? Are they legitimate, safe, do they have a prequalification for a loan? What do you really know about them as they check out the inside of your home? Not much.
A Buyer's agent that shows the home will have prequalified the Buyer or else they would be wasting their time. A Seller should want only qualified Buyers looking at the home and not nosy neighbors, lookey loos or buyers that are hoping to score a low ball offer or worse yet just ask the Seller to "carry the mortgage" until they work out of their financial difficuties. No No No, a Seller does not want that!
The solution to a More Lucrative Sale is to put the home on the MLS with your professional Realtor. Sell your home at the true market price using the principle of Suppy and Demand. Have as many qualified Buyers see the home as possible so the home sells at the true market price.
