Why Would I Ever Sell My Home to An Investor
Imagine, after decades of owning your home life takes a turn for the worse. Everything that could go wrong did. You’re completely over whelmed, unable to stay afloat and the bills are piling up. Stressed out you consider your options. Stay underwater until you eventually have to file bankruptcy or face foreclosure, or sell your home to stay float. Finally, after much consideration you decide it’s time to sell your home. But, how? You’re not in the best place financially and you need to get out fast.
According to "Underwater America," a report published by the Haas Institute,
more than 10 million Americans live in "hot spot" zip codes, where between 43 percent and 76 percent of homeowners are trapped in underwater mortgages and are heading for foreclosure. When faced with this situation a highly beneficial and overlooked option is to work with a real estate investor. The right real estate investor can provide simple out-of-the-box solutions to this cumbersome situation.
Selling a home is in fact a simple process. However, since many only embark on this journey once every few decades it seems like an overwhelming task. The simple process of selling a home includes:
1. Assess the Condition and Ability to Sell Your House. Two months before listing.
2. Establish the Price. One month before listing.
3. Get Ready to Sell.
4. List and Market.
5. Negotiate and Accept an Offer.
6. Prepare Paperwork and Closing.
An experienced real estate investor can further simplify this process by removing elements to speed up the duration to close. With the right investor the process can be reduced to:
1. Assess the Condition and Ability to Sell Your House.
2. Make an Offer (Within 24-48 hours after assessing the home).
3. Negotiate and Accept an Offer.
4. Prepare Paperwork and Closing.
This simple process can be completed in as fast as seven days or on your preferred timeline. At this financially critical time, efficiency may allow you to quickly move forward and reduce many of the burdens currently faced. Some real estate investors even have the ability to offer additional benefits like: credit repair, or relocation assistance. Depending on the needs of your situation finding the right team that will invest time in understanding your current situation. Educate you on your available options. Motivate you to make the right decision, and inspire you to takeover today so tomorrow can be yours, is vital.
