Selling your home is always going to be a gamble—even if you are using a professional agent.
Much like any other industry, residential real estate is entirely contingent on market conditions. But unlike many other industries, residential real estate trends can change virtually overnight. Property values can shift as a result of everything from demographics to both regional and national economies.
Enter property buyers. You may have heard of fast property buyers. You may even have a rough understanding of who they are. But just how can property buyers make selling your home fast and worry free?
What Is a Property Buyer?
Let’s start with a popular misconception: property buyers are the same thing as house flippers.
While many property buyers may specialize in home renovations for the purpose of resale, house flipping is actually a relatively small focus. And property buying isn’t just about investing. It’s about improving the process of home selling.
Real estate agents are fully aware that there’s no such thing as a guaranteed sale. It’s as much of a game of chance as the stock market. Selling a home means finding the right buyer willing to pay the right price at the right time. And rarely are all three factors going to be in perfect agreement.
Property buyers are also aware of this as well. There’s just one difference. They’re aware that a market upswing can happen several years down the road. They’re not concerned with making a sale right now, but with an eye towards the future.
How Property Buyers Can Help Sell Your Home Fast
Here’s a different misconception: property buyers are only interested in new or refurbished homes in hot neighborhoods.
Property buyers know that neighborhood values can vary dramatically. But they’re also aware that investments in neighborhoods can change just as quickly as the real estate market itself.
The recent surge of interest in designated opportunity zones (distressed or otherwise developing neighborhoods) has created a 1.1 percent increase in the value of housing, What this means for homeowners in otherwise disenfranchised communities is that potential sales can frequently be guaranteed by renewed interest from developers.
But unlike traditional real estate agents, property buyers have never shied away from less visible neighborhoods. They know the true value of your home isn’t what it is right now, as much as what it could be. That’s why they’re willing to take a chance by making you a cash offer on your home, no matter what condition it’s in, at a fair and equitable price.
More importantly, property buyers can give you peace of mind. It’s been estimated that the average length of time it takes to sell a home in the U.S. is over 90 days—and that’s assuming it will even sell in the first place. Whether they’re facing an immediate financial emergency or simply uncertainty about the resale value of their home, that’s simply far too long for most homeowners. Property buyers alleviate the worry of selling your home by making an immediate offer when you need it the most.
Neither home sales nor relocation should be a stressful situation. And you’ll have to agree that stress is one thing we need less of these days.
