Their Process is Easy to Follow
Clear communication is a crucial part of selling your home for cash. Only work with a cash buyer whose process is easy to navigate and understand. You shouldn’t be left wondering what comes next or unsure of when to expect to move forward with your sale. It is your buyer’s responsibility to make sure that every step of the process is clearly laid out and communicated to you, and they are responsible for answering any questions you may have. For example, at PlacePitch, we’ve taken care to simplify our home buying process as much as possible so that it is streamlined and easy to navigate for sellers. This means that we’ve broken down our process into three steps:
- Request your quote by filling out a quick form on our website (it should only take about two minutes to complete).
- Sit back and relax while one of our experts comes by for an in-person tour of your home. We do this so that we can make sure we give you the fairest offer possible for your home. You don’t have to worry about cleaning, staging, or making repairs; we see your home as-is.
- Get your offer. We’ll send you your data-driven, market-based offer within one business day of touring your house. If you accept, all that’s left to do is sign the paperwork, set a closing date that works for you, and give you your payment.
They’re Transparent About their Practices
Your buyer must be open to answering your questions about their process, where their price offers come from, and their prior experience purchasing homes for cash. Selling your house is a big deal, and you should be able to rest assured that your buyer has your back and is there to help you understand every part of the process. If a buyer gives you vague, non-committal, or misleading answers to your questions, consider it a major red flag. Instead, go with a buyer who is transparent with you about their process from the very beginning, who follows up with you quickly, and who goes out of their way to help you along every step of the way.
Getting a fair cash offer for your house starts with choosing a reliable and trustworthy buyer. We hope that the guide above has been a helpful asset for you as you navigate the process of selling your home for cash.
