What if you just want to sell your home “As-Is?”
Selling “as-is” can be a great solution for people who don’t have the time, money, or energy to fix up their homes before putting them on the market. The disadvantage is you may not get as much profit from the sale of your house.
An “As-Is” Sale can be great for:
Owners on a fixed income are not able to pay for repairs.
People move quickly, especially for medical reasons, such as stroke, fall, etc. when they have to move into assisted living.
Estate Sales & Probate Houses
Homes with Deferred Maintenance
Rental Houses and Landlord Property
Financial Problems: Behind on payments, Job Loss, Bankruptcy, Forbearance, etc.
If you need to sell in 10 days or less: Some people might be tempted to go for a “Quick Cash Sale” in that case, and we do have an “investor-purchase” program that can make you a cash offer for your home. This is kind of like selling at a pawn shop – you may not get the best price, but you’ll sell quickly.
If you can sell within 30-60 Days: Before you “cash out” with an investor, I always recommend that homeowners list their home and sell to an investor on the open market. Supply and Demand tell us whenever your house has more exposure to the broader market, you have a better chance of finding a buyer that will pay top dollar.
If you can sell in 60-90 Days and want Top Dollar: Homes in Seattle, WA are pricey enough that if you have the time and ability, it makes sense to invest a little in your property NOW, so that you can get the most money out of it when you sell. If you don’t have the cash upfront to do repairs, that’s okay. We work with contractors who will handle all the repairs for you (including management of the contractors) and you can wait to pay them until the property finally sells on the open market. Although it takes a little more time, this is often the best way to earn the most profit on your home sale.
