(Be sure to read all the way to the bottom and watch the short video I created for you)
When it comes to selling your house, you do have a couple options:
- You can sell it on the market by stating your asking price and then working with an agent to try and find a buyer (or trying to find a buyer yourself).
- You can skip the “sell-on-the-market” process and just work with a buyer directly (like what we do here at Tim The House Buyer) who can offer you a fair price for your house and close quickly.
If you’re wondering, “would an investor buy my house in Weatherford for close to asking price?” then here’s what you need to know:
Why Investors Invest
Real estate investors invests in real estate because they hope to buy a house at a lower price and either sell at a higher price or rent out the property for a monthly cash-flow. Therefore, investors are motivated to find houses at discounted prices to buy.
Some investors only buy houses at foreclosure auctions or tax auctions while other investors focus on working directly with home owners, to help the home owners/sellers that are in trouble and need a fast solution for situations such as inherited property, divorcing, expired listing, tired landlords, or any number of other situations requiring a quick solution.
Before you set your asking price, think about what benefits an investor provides…
Understanding The Asking Price
Your asking price is a starting point for negotiations with potential buyers. If you list and sell your house through the help of a real estate agent, the asking price will be the starting point and the buyer will typically try to negotiate a lower price in their offer.
But here’s what most people don’t realize: the asking price has other factors built in… for example, it assumes that you have repaired, updated, and cleaned up your house so it’s in pristine shape and ready for buyers to move into. However, don’t forget that you have to pay bills i.e. lawn care, maintenance, upkeep, potential vandalism, insurance, and property taxes on your house while the agent tries to find a buyer (which can take months many times). And then, you’ll have to pay the agent a commission and closing costs at closing, which can add up to be thousands of dollars.
So your asking price has all of these things / expenses “built into it”.
An Investor Skips All This
When you work with a real estate investor, you actually can skip most, if not all of these expenses. You don’t have to fix up or clean up your house so you can save thousands of dollars and lots of time and frustration there. And, you don’t have to pay all the expenses, taxes, and insurance for months while you wait for a buyer to be found, so you save thousands of dollars there, not to mention stress. And, you don’t have to pay closing costs and commission because no agent was used in the sale, so you save thousands of dollars there as well.
Add it all up: you save thousands of dollars and a lot of time by SELLING TO a real estate investor rather than listing and selling THROUGH an agent and, typically investors can close within days in most cases.
Selling to an investor allows you to sell much faster and avoid many of the above expenses. That’s why an investor might not be able to buy a house at near your asking price. However, the discount you might provide them is money you wouldn’t see anyway because you waited months and “gambled” to sell your house on the open market with an agent.
