If you are considering selling a home in Berkeley, you will want to begin the process by understanding that there are more options to sell than you might ordinarily think of. Many people think that selling a home through a realtor is their only option, but at FasterHouse, we buy houses in Berkeley as-is, offering a helpful alternative to selling through realtors.
By purchasing homes on an as-is basis, we take much of the stress, anxiety, and expense out of the process of selling a house. When selling with a realtor, you’ll find there is a significant amount of preparation that goes into the process. First of all, you will need to research local realtors to find the one you feel most comfortable with selling your home. This will involve time spent meeting with realtors, asking them questions about their experience, and showing them your home.
Once you have selected a realtor, you will then need to begin getting the home ready for showing it off to potential buyers. This begins with serious cleaning of the home, both inside and out, and will probably include some decluttering and other work to stage the home in an attractive manner. You may also find yourself needing to repaint rooms or the exterior, and you may need to make some repairs as well.
Upon completing the long, tiring, and sometimes expensive process of getting the home ready, it’s time to wait for the right buyer to come along. If you live in the right neighborhood, you might find that it takes as little as one week to find a buyer. But most sellers find it can take up to several months to find someone who is willing and able to purchase their Berkeley home. This can be a highly stressful process since you have little control over it. And if you are still paying for utilities and a mortgage payment while living in a different house, it can be quite expensive as well.
But our process saves you time, money, and stress. Buying a home as-is means we buy it in its current condition, with no need for you to clean, repair, or even straighten things up.
We will schedule an appointment to come visit your home, and after that we will be able to make an offer in as little as 24 hours after visiting the home. When selling your home through a realtor, you will often find that the potential buyer who makes an offer on your house will make an offer that is lower than your asking price, either in hopes you will accept at this lower rate or come back with a counter-offer that is higher but not as high as the original price. We save you the anxiety of negotiation guessing games, by making you our best offer up front. So you can look the offer over and figure out whether it is right for you.
Additionally, we buy homes in Berkeley for cash, meaning you won’t have to worry about whether or not financing will be an issue.
