Emily Cressey, Cash Buyer & Real Estate Broker and Investment Advisor – Seattle, WA

Thinking about selling your Seattle-Area home, and aren’t sure where to start? We can offer you a fast, all-cash offer OR we can list your home on the market and sell it the traditional way.

Lots of “investors” want to buy your home at a steep discount so they can fix it up, sell it, and profit. Frankly – we can do that, and we would love to do that, if it’s what you want. But we’re not a one-trick pony.

We can provide you a variety of solutions, and run the numbers with you so you can see what your options are.

For example, here are some great choices available to you:

  1. We can make an all-cash offer within 24 hours and plan to buy your home within a week (that’s usually about as fast as the title company can move) – or on the date of your choice if you need to plan to move out and are looking for another place.
  2. We can list it on the open market “as-is” and let buyers compete so you get the highest price… usually with a 30-day closing.
  3. We can help you finance the repairs for your home so you can spruce it up before you put it on the market, and get top dollar for the property. This may take 2-3 months to get your check, but it will be a bigger amount.

Speed and Convenience? Or Higher Profit – It’s up to you. We’ll help you understand your options and make a great choice for your situation.

Here Are Some Of The Other Properties We’ve Helped

People choose to work with a real estate investor like me who can pay cash, take over their payments, lease out their property, and partner on repairs for a variety of reasons – mostly because I’m a good problem solver. I’ve been investing in real estate since 2002 and have trainied other investors at a national level.

I enjoy meeting new people and using my knowledge and experience to help them figure out the best solution.

Maybe you already know what you want -that’s great – call me and tell me your price and we’ll see if we can make it happen. (Or just fill out the form on this page).

But if you’re not sure what to do with your property, you can trust a licensed broker like me to act as your advisor and give you ALL your options.

Here are just a few of the houses (and their people) I’ve had the opportunity to help.

2) Create A Buyers Frenzy

A second option is to work together to put the house on the open market and then use our online marketing strategies, our in-house list of buyers, and our agent contacts to augment the MLS and create a buying frenzy amongst people who may be interested in getting a good deal on a house like yours, even if it’s a fixer-upper. Often a mom-and-pop buyer who are going to move into the property and do the repairs to it while they live there, can pay MORE than a professional investor who is going to do the repairs herself, but also needs to make a profit.

You can sell your home “as-is” and still allow the market to compete. This would be like an auction, where we start low and let the market bring your house up to it’s full value. This allows you to get the maximum price for your house, without having to do any repair work.

Getting Repairs Done Takes Time and Money

Now, as you probably know, if your place needs a little (or a lot) of fix-up work, it can take time and money to get that done. Especially with all the labor shortages and sky-high lumber costs, (not to mention waiting for them to unload all the goods from the boats at the ports), this can be a time-consuming and somewhat risky endeavor.

Because of this risk and expense, most cash investors like me will need to get a reasonable discount on the price of the property. After all, we’re going to be doing all the work that you didn’t want to. If that’s how we spend our time, we need to get paid for that time so we can put food on the table. That’s how it works. So, while a cash offer will be a fair price, it will account for the work that needs to be done on the home, plus all the taxes, fees, insurance, utilities and so on that will be encountered on the way to getting the property sold.

If you want fast cash for your property and want to get done with it quickly. We will take care of everything and you can turn over the keys and get your check in a matter of about 7-Days. Wow! That’s cookin’ and we can do it. If you’re ready to move on, and we can reach an agreement, you can wash your hands of the whole things and we can take care of it all for you.

3) If You Want To Finance The Repairs, We Can Help With That, Too

However, if you’re not comfortable with the price we offer and you want to make more money from the sale of your home, we have a third option for you to consider. We can finance the repairs for you, and you pay for them from the equity in the house when it sells.

Yes, you can work with our contractor who will do the repair work and wait to get paid until the property is “done” getting fixed up. This way, if you want to get more money, and are able to wait for the repairs to be done (you just don’t have the cash to do them yourself), we can help make that happen for you.

Look how much nicer a home can look with a few upgrades to the interior.

Selling A Home That Needs Repair As-Is
We are here to serve and educate you as you take the next steps in your real estate journey. Feel free to ask any questions, even if you are not planning to pursue a transaction for months or years, we are here to serve!

Now, I realize I have presented a lot of information here, but I want you to know you have options, and we will help you sort through your choices.

I certainly don’t want you to be overwhelmed and have “analysis paralysis” – but I also don’t want you to take this decision lightly. As an investor, I’ve worked with people who were flat broke, and also multi-millionaires. None of us are that different – we’re all just people. But I do like to help people realize that their house can be a huge asset or a huge liability, and how to handle the sale is not something you should take lightly.

Everyone’s circumstances are unique, and my goal is to give you the best advice I can. Now, I’m not an attorney like the rest of my family, and I’m not a licensed financial advisor, but as a real estate broker, I am licensed to act as your AGENT when it comes to making a decision on what to do with your house, and that means I put your needs ahead of my own.

Investment Potential

We view every client’s home purchase as a potential investment. However, if you are not looking for a home to live in, but a separate non-owner occupied investment property with income potential, we’ve got you covered.

As investors ourselves, we know the process for finding fixer-uppers and cash-flowing real estate in Seattle (hint: think giant down payment!)

This market boasts historically low cap rates in the 4% range, so cashflow can be hard to come by, but a forced-appreciation deal, quick flip, long-term rental or other investment can be a great strategy.

If you can hold on for the long term, you might just see a few years of Seattle’s fabled double-digit appreciation drive your home value up! In King and Snohomish counties, a duplex, fourplex, BRRR , Air BnB, House Hack, or adult family home can be a great Seattle investment option – check out our investors page for more information!
