You have probably seen signs everywhere, or gotten adverts in the mail advertising that that particular company pays cash for houses. The flyers almost always say that the company is ready to buy your house in whatever condition it is in, whether in good conditions, or in bad ones. They also say that the people buying are real estate and are licensed but they will not charge you any commission. It is said that when the deal is too good think twice and this is exactly what you should do in this case. The organizations, for the most part, go after individuals that are in a rush to offer their homes since being frantic makes them not to consider everything. When advertising, they mention the type of homes they are looking for so that anyone in distress sees this and contacts them to sell immediately. They mostly go for damaged houses, houses whose owners are divorcing, or bankrupt and many more reasons.
To make you believe that they have your best interests at heart, the buyers will insist that they do not accept any commission. They will even reveal to you how real estate agents take a commission to get rich. This is a lie, the fast-cash buyers are the ones taking advantage of your predicament and getting rich while at it, and the real estate agent is trying to help. As to the prior claim that commissions make the agents rich, the commissions act as motivation. The fast-cash buyers do not charge commission because they are afraid the seller might sue them. Requesting a commission after exploiting somebody isn’t a good move, and the seller may get disturbed and choose to sue them. They also don’t employ any professional from outside to help them with stuff after buying your house, they do everything alone to save money.
They are very good negotiators and will make sure they get your house at the lowest price they can get you to agree to. Everything mentioned above should be enough to help you decide whether to sell to a cash-for-homes company or use the proper means. Whichever way you offer your house; you will get cash from it. So, however desperate you are, you shouldn’t not go the fast-cash route unless really necessary. The conventional buyer will buy your home at a higher price and every loan will be catered for. Furthermore, the fast-cash buyer will most probably also sell to a conventional buyer after buying from you and make a very big profit while at it. When selling your house, try and make sure everything is in order as this is a sensitive project.
