Fast and Fair Go Hand-in-Hand
Finding a cash buyer you can trust is all about understanding what qualities matter – and which ones are just smoke and mirrors. For example, quick turnarounds matter – but they shouldn’t come at the expense of market research. If a buyer promises to get you an offer on your property within one day but doesn’t make it clear that they do thorough market research in order to make the offer as fair as possible, there’s a possibility that you could find a better cash offer elsewhere. You don’t have to sacrifice thoroughness in order to get speed; there are cash buyers out there who can get your sale done in as little as one week, all the while pledging to give you a fair, data-driven offer based on your home’s real market value.
First Impressions Matter. Here’s How to Gauge Them.
First impressions aren’t everything, but they sure can tell you a lot about the effort that a potential buyer places into making your experience as smooth and pleasant as possible from day one. For example, a beautiful website doesn’t automatically mean that a buyer is more reliable. However, it does show you that they’ve put a great deal of thought and resources into giving their digital visitors a pleasant experience. This is a good first sign that they’ll put just as much effort into the rest of your time working with them.
In addition to a well-designed, easy-to-use website, the most important part of a first impression to pay attention to is the quality of the information a buyer gives you without asking for anything in return. Are they vague and noncommittal, unwilling to give you valuable info unless they can get something in return? Or do they clearly explain their process and what you can expect without asking you for information or any commitments? The more willing a buyer is to educate and inform you before you become a client, the more it says about their integrity and collaboration skills once you are actively working with them.
A Process That’s Easy to Follow
Selling a house is a big process, no matter how quickly you need to get it done. We believe that your cash buyer’s job isn’t just to pay you for the property; it’s to help orient you through the process so that it’s as stress-free as possible for you. That starts with clearly outlining what you can expect every step of the way. For example, PlacePitch’s three-step process is designed to make the sale experience as easy as possible for sellers. We do this by minimizing the amount of work you have to do. Here’s how it works:
- First, you request an offer by submitting some basic information via our secure form submissions.
- Then, we reach out within one business day to schedule a viewing of the property. You don’t have to do anything – no repairs, cleaning, or staging. We see the property just as it is so we can give you the most updated, accurate offer possible.
- Finally, you get your offer, accept, and get paid. No commissions, hidden fees, or anything else; the offer you get is the payment you get.
Streamlined processes are key when it comes to making your house sale as easy and worry-free as possible. Always pay attention to how a buyer works to live up to the promises they make.
