It’s Not Full of Uncertainties
When you sell your house on the traditional market, you go into escrow, which is a 30-60 day process between the offer on your property being accepted and the actual closing date. During escrow, a few things happen: the property undergoes inspections and appraisals. If any of these reveal an issue with the house that lowers its listing price, the entire sale can be jeopardized. We’re not trying to be alarmist by saying this, but it’s important to know that accepting an offer on your house isn’t a sure thing when you list it on the market.
On the other hand, if you sell your property for cash, you can skip all of the back-and-forth that comes with a traditional escrow process. You ask for an offer, your home gets viewed in person, and you get your offer and close. It’s a straightforward process that leaves no room for uncertainties.
Traditional home sales involve a lot of paperwork, negotiations about things like closing costs and repair credits, and general hoops to jump through in order to secure the sale. Selling your house for cash to a reliable buyer is much less complicated. With PlacePitch, for example, the process is designed specifically for the seller’s convenience. All you actually need to do is request your offer, which takes two minutes or less. We take over from there, scheduling an in-person viewing of the house (you don’t have to clean up or fix anything), then preparing our offer and all of the closing documents. If you accept the offer, we close. It’s that simple.
You Won’t Pay Anything
During a traditional real estate closing, the offer you get on the property isn’t exactly the money you’ll probably walk away with at the end of the process. As the seller, you’ll probably have to contribute to closing costs, real estate agents’ commissions, and potentially even give credits for repairs that the property is found to need during the inspection and appraisal. During a cash sale, that doesn’t happen. The offer you get is the money you’re paid at the end of the process when you work with a reliable buyer. You don’t have to pay closing costs, commissions, or anything else. In a cash sale, you won’t have any surprises when it comes to the money you’re getting, and you can rest easy knowing that.
The average traditional home sale takes about three months in Florida. When you sell for cash, that waiting period is much shorter–like, “close in one day” short. At PlacePitch, we can get your cash sale done in as little as one day (or whatever timeline works for you). No matter what your circumstances are or how urgent it is for you to sell a mobile home for cash, we can make it happen–and all for a fair price.
It’s Based on Real Numbers
One of the biggest worries that people have when it comes to cash sales is about getting scammed. Of course, the ethicality of your sale will depend on the integrity of your buyer (which is why it’s so important to look for reviews from previous sellers when considering a cash buyer). With that said, it’s completely possible to get a fair price for your house.
To make sure this happens, be sure to inquire with potential buyers about how they come up with their offers. The only right answer to this question is “a comparative market analysis.” In short, a CMA uses the selling prices of similar properties within the same area to determine what the fair market rate is for your house. You should be getting an offer that’s based on real-time numbers, not people’s opinions. Make sure you secure that by going with a cash buyer who prioritizes fairness.
