Sell My House for Cash in Just Three Steps
In a traditional sale, you have to take several steps to sell a house. You have to hire a realtor, make the necessary repairs, schedule an inspection, list the house, market the house, show the house, negotiate with a buyer, and then go through a lengthy closing process. Ernest Buys Homes eliminates all the steps with a simple cash sale.
You can sell your home quickly in just three steps.
Step 1: Contact Our Local Buyers
Contact one of our buyers today to schedule a walkthrough of your property. Once we get an idea of your property, we will schedule an inspection. From there, we can decide if we want to buy the house. We buy houses as-is!
Step 2: Get a Fair Cash Offer
If we are interested in purchasing your property, we will make a fair cash offer just under the current market value of your house. In most cases, we can make an offer within 24 to 48 hours of the walkthrough, so you do not have to wait.
Step 3: Get Paid Cash for Your House
If you accept our cash offer, the final step is to schedule a convenient date to close the sale. We can close in as little as seven days. Simply show up, sign the paperwork, and walk away with no strings attached. We pay the closing costs.
Why Can’t I Just Sell My House As-Is on the Market?
The truth is that it is possible to sell your house exactly as it is right now on the market. You can hire a realtor, put a sign in the yard, and even list it as-is on an online real estate website. However, today, the average buyer wants a move-in ready house free of any problems. There are plenty of those houses available on the market, making it difficult to compete with other sellers.
A damaged house is extremely difficult to sell simply because of the extent of the damage. A fire, natural disaster, or vandalism can cost thousands of dollars in restoration expenses. Many buyers don’t want to sink that much money into a house before they even move in.
If you have a house that has been on the market for several months, it starts to develop a bad reputation in the market. People start wondering what is wrong with the house. The longer the house stays vacant, the harder it is to get anyone to look at it.
There was a time when older houses were a great sell. Those days are quickly disappearing, as today’s buyers want a newer house with fewer issues. If you have an older house, you may have realized that you’ll need to spend thousands of dollars on upgrading it before it is sellable.
A foreclosure often raises a red flag with buyers. Some people may believe that there is either something wrong with the house or the mortgage. If you are in the middle of a foreclosure, you may not be able to sell the house in time to keep the foreclosure from going through.
