When we buy homes in Dardenne Prairie, we often hear how much the home sellers we work with appreciate how easy we make it to get cash for their homes. That is important to us, as we work with people selling their homes for a variety of reasons, and we take the opportunity to help them seriously. We know that the last thing they need is a stressful home selling experience. Want to know what makes our approach to buying homes in Dardenne Prairie a stress-free alternative?
One major cause of anxiety that we eliminate during the home selling process is waiting. There’s a lot of waiting that goes into selling your home with the help of a realtor.
-First, you’ll need to wait to find the right realtor. It’s wise to meet with a few different candidates so that you can find the one best suited to help you get the best price at the fastest rate, but that process can take a few weeks by itself.
-The next stage of waiting comes while you try to get your home ready for the sale. Even if your home is in great shape, odds are it will need a fresh coat of paint in a few rooms, some decluttering, and staging in order to look ready to win over a potential buyer.
-Waiting for that buyer to come along may take as a little as a few days if you live in a highly coveted area of town, but if you live in a place where there is more housing inventory available and less urgency among buyers to move in, you’re looking at anywhere from weeks to several months to find a buyer who is interested in your home, can afford your home, and is willing to pay what you want for your home.
-Once your perfect buyer has come along and you have agreed on a price, you will then need to wait around another month for closing.
With so much waiting, and so much to do at every step, it can indeed be an anxiety-inducing process. Add to that the possibility of negotiating and you have even more stress. Most realtors will tell you to price your home a bit above what you actually want to get for it, as a prospective buyer will likely offer less. Buyers may also ask for other concessions, such as asking that you repair something or replace an appliance.
Another potential problem that home sellers must consider is financing. Many sellers have faced unfortunate situations in which the buyers they were working with thought they’d be able to secure financing to purchase the home, only to find out once the contract and closing process began that they could not do so. This isn’t the only surprise that might come up after agreeing on a price – sometimes home inspections will reveal problems you didn’t know existed, leading to additional expenses for you the seller.
So how do we help you avoid this stress when we buy homes in Dardenne Prairie? One key is that we buy homes as-is. That means that we purchase them in their current condition, absolving you of the need to fix any major problems or even touch up aesthetic issues with the home. This greatly speeds up the time to purchase.
Additionally, we pay cash for homes when we buy houses in Dardenne Prairie, so you can rest assured that financing is not an issue. And since we work so often in this area, we know the local market dynamics and can make our first offer to you our very best one, eliminating the need to haggle over pricing.
