Have you been approached by IBuyers (Instantl Buyers) that will buy your home for CASH only to immediately FLIP it for a large profit for themselves? Even Realtors® get similar inquiries about our own homes. (Photo Home Equity Nattanan Kanchanaprat Pixabay)Definition: IBUYER           (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?

Prices are surging all around us including home prices. With most Americans borrowing on a mortgage to purchase the home, appraisals must keep up in order for the Buyer to qualify for a loan. This is a big deal as if the Buyer does not get the appraisal price, a larger down payment is needed to match an appraisal shortfall.Nicole Friedman through the Wall Street Journal post on Realtor.com dated October 11, 2021 reports,  "Jason and Talitha Brooks listed their house in Orange Park, Fla., in June at $320,000. After receiving multiple bids, the couple accepted an offer at $335,000. But the appraiser, hired by the buyer’s lender, valued the home at only $305,000. The Brookses and the buyer couldn’t agree on a new purchase price, and the deal fell through.“This whole appraisal process, it’s...

Sellers: Your House Could Be an Oasis for Buyers Seeking More Options Sellers have a great opportunity this season as buyer demand still heavily outweighs the current supply of homes for sale. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), today’s housing inventory sits at only a 2.6-month supply. To put that into perspective, a neutral market typically features a 6-month supply. That places today’s market firmly in the sellers’ market category. That same NAR data also shows today’s inventory of single-family homes is trailing behind the level we saw last year (see graph below):Because of the ongoing supply challenges, buyers can feel like they’re wandering across a vast, empty desert when searching for their next home. That means your house could provide an oasis for buyers t...
