Pricing Your House to Sell Correctly
In the real estate world houses that are priced at a fair value or just below a fair value usually sell much quicker than those with higher asking prices. As a seller, you may need to separate some of the emotions of what you think your house is worth versus what it is actually worth when determining an asking price. Knowing what other similar houses in your neighborhood have sold for can greatly help with setting your asking price. While asking a lower price when selling your home may not seem super appealing, it will help you to generate more interest in your property, thus selling it faster. Keep in mind, that buyers can also get into a bidding war and thus drive up the price above what you would have normally accepted. When working with agents make sure to ask 6% higher than what you would like to take home, as both your agent and the buyer’s agent will take home commissions from the sale. Additional fees will occur if selling through an agent at closing. This often makes selling to an investor or home buyer a much better option. You can see the benefits of selling directly to a home investor here.
Forget Repairing the House and Sell “As-Is”
You may have noticed that in the property description of houses listed on the MLS they will sometimes say “house is being sold as-is.” This implies that the seller will not make any repairs as part of the condition of sale, and that the buyer is assuming the house in the present condition. When you sell your house as-is, you won’t have to spend time or money cleaning or making repairs in order to sell the house. There is no need to make repairs since the buyer knows going into the transaction that there is work needed to be done. Often real estate agents will struggle to sell houses “as-is” since they market to and covet retail and move-in ready buyers. “As-is” properties on the MLS tend to get looked over by buyers and can sit for much longer. The longer your house sits on the market the lower value it has in buyer’s minds. By selling as-is to a professional buyer such as 717 Home Buyers, you’ll be able to know exactly what you are getting and when. Our process will make it easy for you to sell your house as-is, without all the hassle of dealing with an agent.
Network to Find the Right Buyers
Buyer’s exist out there for every type of property in any type of condition. Our specialty is finding the right one for your property. Depending on your property and situation, the right buyer may prove to be an investor who is ready to close on your house right away. Most investors are used to dealing with “as-is” properties and actually want to spend the time rehabbing the properties. Just be careful working with national direct buyers who do not know the Harrisburg market well. Out of state companies thrive on making low ball offers for your homes. This is not the case with 717 Home Buyers. We will always provide you with a fair offer, doing everything in our power to help you out of your difficult situation. Since we actively buy and live in the central pa area, we are able to beat or offer more money than most of our competitors. Recently we were able to secure over $20,000 more for a local property that another well-known property buying company offered on.
