A lot of home owners are in the dark when it comes to selling a property. Some of the questions that arise carry serious weight on the shoulders of prospective home sellers. These can range from things like, “should we do some of the repairs? Should we update that kitchen? Should we call that real estate agent who keeps sending us emails about this being the best time to sell our house?” The decisions made during this decision making process can have drastic impact on the future for those selling a home.
Leaving money on the table is ALWAYS a fear when making big life decisions, especially when there is a property involved. The solution to this fear is to weigh the options that are available. When selling a piece of property those options may be more than the average person may be aware of. A lot of homeowners have no idea how much updating that kitchen would actually cost and don’t have the skill set to do the work themselves. If you do, go for it! Who doesn’t love a good D.I.Yer!
If ripping out heavy cabinets and updating plumbing that needs permits in some cases to even touch doesn’t strike your fancy the next logical step would be to get quotes of what a professional contracting company would charge. This takes time and patience as finding a reputable contracting company can feel like a hiring process all it itself. Let’s say then you find one that gives you a quote for that kitchen at a price you don’t like (too high) and then they tell you something along the lines of “hey this will be 3 months before we can have this job completed. There goes precious time in your selling decision making process! Repeat this process for all major repairs needed on a property for example, foundation estimates, landscaping, roof and gutters and the list goes on.
Now ask yourself a question…
“Who can come and bid the entire rehab project all in one appointment”?
The answer is…
Real Estate investment companies. They bid complete rehab projects to budget their own bids and offers on properties every single day and are industry experts when it comes to material costs and labor to get the job done. Use their industry expertise to save time and countless phone calls for multiple companies to come out and bid all the jobs you need done a property. The beautiful thing about real estate investment companies is they not only bid the rehab projects for you, they will make you an offer on the property exactly the way it sits with No repairs due from the homeowner.
If this sounds like a better home selling experience already the smart thing to do is to check into a local real estate investment company, or multiple and have them do the heavy lifting for you. The worse thing that can happen is you make a more informed decision on how to go about selling your property.
