The Truth About Selling Your House
You might be thinking: if I need money fast in unemployment and the best way to get it is to sell my house, why wouldn’t I just work with an agent and put it on the market? Here’s the thing: selling your house on the traditional market can be a great choice, but it’s important to understand the reality of the process before committing to it. First off, the average traditional real estate process in Florida takes about three months from beginning to end. During those three months, your house will have to undergo inspection and appraisal. If anything comes up (for example, if it appraises for less than the listing price or the inspection turns up something that needs to be repaired), it could mean more extensive negotiations or even expensive repairs before you close, which can end up pushing back the closing date. We’re not saying this to scare you off: sometimes, market sales go super smoothly. However, there’s a significant chance that there will be speed bumps along the way, and if you need money quickly, it’s important to be aware of those risks before committing to the traditional process.
How Selling for Cash is Different
When you work with a cash buyer who you can trust, you can reap all of the benefits of the traditional real estate process in a fraction of the time. Won’t a cash process give you less money, though? The answer to that depends completely on the buyer you’re working with, the state of the market, and the condition of your home. Sometimes, cash deals do offer you a little less than you would get on the conventional market. Other times, between repair costs, agent commissions, and closing costs, cash buyers can offer you even more. The best thing you can do to protect your best interest and maximize your return in a cash sale is work with a reputable buyer who has a track record of doing right by their sellers.
