Discover How to Sell Your House Fast

Talk to a Philadelphia Real Estate Pro

In a recent post I discussed five things regarding how to set the sales price of your home.  Today, I’ll discuss consider hiring a real estate appraiser (costs money), or calling a real estate investor (free estimates).

For a fee of $250-$500 (in thePhiladelphia and Bucks County area), you can hire a real estate appraiser to determine the value of your home, based on its condition plus the values of recent comparable homes.  This can help justify your asking price when showing your home to buyers.

When you contact a Real Estate Investor (CMT Real Estate if you are in the Philadelphia and Bucks CountyArea), you are dealing directly with someone who wants to buy your house – not list it for sale. Most real estate investors will educate you regarding the market and you home. If you are looking for a very quick sale, or if your house is not in prime condition, this is often your best alternative. Once you call an investor, they will ask you about your house, the repairs that are needed, your current situation, and why you are selling your home. They’ll use that information to create an offer that works both for you and for them. Generally, they will close (buy your house) as quickly as you need, or stretch out the closing date if you need additional time.

The biggest advantage is that you are dealing directly with a buyer, so once you come to an agreement, your house is as good as sold. All you need to do is start packing. You don’t need to worry about if and when the house is going to sell. You won’t have a bunch of strangers walking through your house at unpredictable times. And you’ll have no repairs to make since an investor will buy your house in its current condition.

They have all of the necessary forms and will handle everything for you. You just need to show up to closing and collect your money.

If you decide to work with a real estate investor, you’ll want to find one who is concerned with your situation and is looking for a way to structure the sale so you both get what you want.  Unfortunately, not every investor is created equal. A good investor has numerous techniques for buying your house, and can create flexible programs that meet your needs.
