When I speak to people who are trying to sell their property, I’m often asked the question, “How do I benefit from selling my house to you?” “What’s in it for me?”
I always love answering that question. Today’s property owners have lots of options: they can try to sell the house themselves, they can put their property on the market via a real estate agent, or they can sell their house to a real estate investor. None of these choices is necessarily better than the others but they each have their own advantages and disadvantages.
Here is what I say when asked why someone should sell their house to me:
In most cases, sellers want to sell their property as quickly as possible. They may be facing foreclosure or they’re settling a divorce. Sometimes the seller has relocated because of a job and needs to sell the house quickly to avoid two mortgage payments. Some people have inherited a house and they don’t want the hassle of dealing with the repairs and marketing necessary to sell the house.
Most people who try selling their house themselves or through a real estate agent find that the process is anything but a “quick” process in most cases. Unless you are willing to sell your house at a significantly reduced price, in many markets you could find yourself waiting 2-3 months before you accept an offer.
On the other hand, because I’m an independent, local investor with private funds, I can often close a house purchase in 7 days or less.
I have the flexibility to make my offer fit the seller’s needs. If the seller wants to close quickly, that can be arranged. If the seller wants the cash all at once or a monthly cash flow, I can do those, too. I can also make up past due mortgage payments and take over current mortgage payments to immediately relieve money burdens on the seller.
I can be a lot more flexible with my offers than the “traditional” offers a seller typically receives. I can do this because I’m independent and not a part of a bank bureaucracy which must follow lots of rules. I’m also an expert at evaluating a sellers’ needs and constructing numerous creative solutions to meet that sellers’ needs, something that your average home buyer wouldn’t think of.
I might buy someone’s house when no one else will. In many cases, I buy houses that have been fire damaged, termite infested, mold infested, have foundation problems, have roof damage, or need major repairs. Houses with these conditions scare most buyers and real estate agents hate listing them because they know such houses are hard to sell.
I enjoy talking to sellers with “problem” houses because I can see the houses’ potential value after all the repairs are made. I’m also not worried about extensive repairs if the value of the house after I have made the repairs, justifies the expenses.
In conclusion, I often encourage property owners to investigate all options available of getting their house sold in the way that best meets their needs. If they decide that working with and selling their property to me makes the most sense, then I’m more than happy to help.
