There are many unknowns with selling a home.
The truth is, there are plenty of benefits to working with professional home buyers. In this blog, we will go over five things you probably didn’t know which will help explain why.
But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Before we tell you all the often-overlooked benefits of working with professional home buyers, let’s give you a general idea of who they are and what they do.
What and Who are Professional Home Buyers?
If you own a burdensome property, are dealing with a family death, going through foreclosure or anything else, professional homebuyers are your guys. At CLT Buyers, these tough situations are where we thrive. It’s our job as professional homebuyers to be of service to anyone looking to sell their home fast. It’s our goal to be the solution to homeowners trying to get out of sticky situations.
Simply put, you contact us about a house you are looking to sell, we come and see the property, and pay cash for it. Don’t worry about getting your house prepared and neat, we will buy your house “as-is.” At the end of the day, we are looking for win-win solutions and don’t just want the experience to be just a transaction.
What’s the Selling Process like with Professional Homebuyers?
The selling process is a breeze. We offer you all cash, no hidden fees or commissions. Once we buy it from you, the property’s responsibility is in our hands, meaning you don’t have to worry about anything any further. In some cases, folks have even left unwanted furniture or other household items to be removed.
Now that you have a better understanding of the role professional home buyers play, let’s look at some of the benefits of working with teams like ours that might not be as apparent.
No Hidden Costs and No Commission
You have three main options when looking to sell your home. Selling with an agent, selling it yourself (FSBO), or selling it to a professional home buyer. With each option, there are different costs associated.
Through experience, you may already know that there are many hidden costs that arise when selling with an agent or yourself and usually you might feel it’s already too late in the process to back out.
We at CLT Buyers understand this, and we pride ourselves on being upfront with sellers about costs. We take into consideration the location of the property, what repairs are needed, and the current condition of the property when making an offer to a seller.
To make it even better, there are no fees or commissions. That may be hard to believe, but we usually pay the agreed-upon offer in cash and there are absolutely no hidden fees. We often pay the closing fees too!
We want the least amount of hassle so you can get the house out of your hands, and we can continue to do our job in serving our communities!
You Can Skip the Repairs!
Leave the house as-is. Yes, you read that right.
Instead, leave the risk and responsibility to us. When we buy houses it is usually a fast transaction. We want to get the property and responsibility out of your hands as soon as possible to benefit you and get you out of these sticky situations.
When selling your house through a different route, you usually have to deal with potential buyers requesting you make repairs or upgrade things here and there. Not only will you be paying for the repairs, but you will also have to take the time to have them scheduled and completed.
If you are in a sticky situation, this could be a disadvantage for you as you will have to care for the property and wait for repairs to be finished before closing the sale. When going through the process of selling your home to a buyer or with an agent, there is no set timeline of when the repairs will be finished and when you will be able to close the sale.
With CLT Buyers, we let you have flexibility with the close date. You won’t have to pay for repairs or waste your time and effort. You won’t have to wait for the financing and we try our best to close the sale very quickly to best benefit you.
The Sale is More Personable
Throughout the entire process of selling your property, you will still be working with professionals. But with a twist.
Although we are professionals, we are humans first and we prioritize our sellers as much as, and possibly even more than our end goal to make a profit. The property itself is a big focus, but finding a fair solution to get the responsibility of selling it out of your hands and making your life easier is a big priority. We are here to service you.
If we cannot reach a fair price or the property just does not work for us, we will still be willing to offer you our knowledge and expertise because at the end of the day we care about you as a person and not just your property.
The relationships we build with sellers are something we value greatly. Professional home buying is a business but also a process of growing and fostering relationships with a larger community.
Easily Know Who You Are Working With
When dealing with a large amount of money, an asset, or just simply something you care about, it’s always more comforting knowing where that is going.
When dealing with agents and other homeowners, it is tough to understand where their mindset is when it comes to your property and needs. You never know what type of person will try to buy your property. They could end up canceling at the last minute or waste your time by negotiating prices that aren’t anywhere near your requests.
With agents making a commission off your sale, they may be focusing on that only or just trying to build their reputation. The last thing you want when you are already in a sticky situation is to get into an even stickier one.
We have worked with many different sellers and homeowners on a personal level that can vouch for the work we do and the experience we show. We take pride in being transparent and want you to be comfortable when it comes to such a large decision!
If there’s one aspect about professional home buyers we want to stick with you after reading this blog, it’s that we care about you as a person and want to find a solution that is fair and beneficial for all parties involved.
CLT Buyers knows how tough the real estate industry can be for both sellers and buyers and if we can make it even a little less complicated, we have accomplished one of our goals. Not only do we specialize in home buying as professionals, but we also aim to educate buyers, sellers, investors, and anyone starting out in the home buying industry.
