Step-by-Step Guide To Selling A House As-Is
When life throws surprise after surprise at you, sometimes you have to adjust on the fly and make decisions that may not be easy but will be best for you and your family. If something happens in your life that causes you to have to or willingly sell your home in its current condition, you need to consult with the experts to ensure you get the highest possible price for your sale.
Reasons For Selling Your Home For Cash
At Bill Buys Houses, we truly care about you and want to help you through whatever ordeal you are going through. Through our concise process for buying a house as-is, we will be there for you every step of the way and ensure you get the care and service you deserve.
Things happen all the time, such as losing your job, you or a loved one getting sick, and much more. Even in divorce, there can be issues with a house under both parties’ names. If something like this happens to you or someone in your family, you may be forced to make the difficult decision to sell your house or other property immediately.
This is a difficult choice to make, but with the help of a licensed, caring team of real estate professionals, you can make the process easier for everyone.
Unable to Fix Up Your Home
Typically when you think of selling your home, you think of fixing it up so you get the highest selling price possible. However, you may not have the means or the time to make these major repairs, and you simply need to get as much money for your house as possible so you can use it for what you need.
You may even have a condemned home, which can be even more difficult to sell. Oftentimes, many companies claim to want to help you through this process, but they give you a lowball offer and charge you extra fees.
However, that’s where we are different. Bill Buys Houses will work with you to give you the best cash deal possible.
If you inherited a home in the Twin Cities, you might not know what to do with it. When you inherit a house through someone’s will, you have to go through the probate process, which is daunting and frustrating at times.
Once that process is complete, you can consider selling the home for cash. Managing two houses, including paying two mortgages in some cases, can be difficult. Bill Buys Houses will make you a cash offer on your inherited home. It’s a much easier solution and process than selling through a real estate agent, which comes with fees, time, and negotiation.
Our Process For Selling a House As-Is
When you think of selling your house as-is, you may think of clearing out your possessions, making a few repairs, and leaving it at that. However, we have changed the industry, so you don’t have to worry about any of these things if you don’t want to.
If you don’t have the time or resources to move unneeded or unwanted possessions out of your house, we will take care of it. The same thing goes for making repairs. Our process for selling a house as-is is the following:
Schedule a Meeting & Walkthrough
The first thing we will do when you come to us for an offer is to schedule a meeting and walkthrough at your property. We’re not just here to make a dollar; we’re here to understand what you’re going through and help you find the best solution.
If we visit your property and think you can get more money for your sale through another service, we will tell you and help you set it up. We want what’s best for you. During our walkthrough, we will assess every aspect of your property while we get to know you, so we can provide you with an accurate quote.
Give You a Quote
Within two days of walking through your house or property, we will have a fair, competitive quote made for you to evaluate. This quote is based on the current state of your home and property, as well as any necessary repairs that will have to be made and more.
We guarantee this quote within a couple of days, and oftentimes you will receive the quote within 24 hours.
Finish the Transaction
Once you have accepted our quote, we immediately contact our investors to have the money ready for you as soon as the paperwork is done. If you are selling your home as-is, as soon as you sign the paperwork, you are free of any responsibility for the property.
If you want to leave all of your possessions in the house and just vacate, that’s fine. If you want all of your possessions and need a little time to get them out, that’s fine, too. No matter what you need, we will support you, and you can sell your house in its current condition with no questions asked.
From the walkthrough to finishing the transaction, it is typically one week or less before you have your cash in hand and can move forward.
What Are The Benefits Of Selling Your House As-Is?
There are several benefits to selling your house in its current condition. These benefits are especially useful if you are in a situation where you need the money for your home immediately. Some of the various benefits include:
With our process, you can have cash in your hand for your home in about one week. This is especially useful if you need money fast for various reasons.
No Need to Make Repairs
The primary benefit of selling your house as-is is that you don’t need to make costly repairs in order to make your home’s value rise. This can end up costing you a great deal of money, which is counterproductive if you are trying to save your money for something necessary.
Listing your home, keeping the home maintained for showings, and waiting for the closing process to complete takes a lot of time. You’ll also need an agent, in most cases, unless you want to try and sell your home without one.
Selling a home for cash is a great way to skip all that effort and unload a home, particularly if it's ugly, and move on with your life.
Avoid Potential Foreclosure
If you’re at risk of foreclosure and don’t want to take the hit, you can consider selling your home for cash. This can help you avoid foreclosure and leave with a chunk of change in your pocket to start over fresh. Your credit score won’t be affected, and you can avoid eviction or other unpleasant circumstances.
Better Options When Purchasing a New House
Selling a home for cash puts you in a better position to purchase a new home. If you have enough cash to put down a large down payment, you won’t have to wrangle with an FHA loan, paying points on your mortgage, and your new mortgage payment will be lower. You’ll be in a much better position moving forward.
