There are many factors to home ownership which might cause a quick house sale. It could be financial, a job transfer or simply that an owner wants fast cash. Either way, selling a home fast is often not that easy or quick of a process. Deferred maintenance, repairs or getting a home up to selling standards is often difficult for the average person.
Repairs can take time – time the owner might not have, or willing to take, impeding a fast house sale. Further, hiring a professional handyman to make them can lessen the amount cash a homeowner is able to get for selling their home.
Even after making the house ready for sale, the selling process may take weeks or months, even in a hot seller’s marketing. Home buyers will often need inspections and appraisals performed to get financing. Or they will make the sale of their current home contingent on buying your home. This adds to the time it takes to sell a property.
An alternative is selling your home to a cash buyer – often an investor. Investors will often take on the cost and risk of your current state of your home and won’t require time-consuming inspections beyond their own. Cash buyers for homes can easily close in a matter of days – often as soon as a title company can provide clear title. Further, additional closing costs are often mitigated or dropped in lieu of a quick closing.
