Relocating? Pre-foreclosure? Fire Damage? Flooding? Tax Lien? Divorce? Health Issues? Job Loss? Upsizing? Downsizing? Death of of Loved One? Tired of Being a Landlord? These are among the many reasons causing thousands of Texans every year to explore options for selling real estate fast, be it a house, condo, ranch, land, multi-family, or commercial property. Selling to a real estate investor features many benefits while alternatives are burdened with multiple drawbacks.
Selling to a Real Estate Investor is often the best way to sell your house fast in Texas because it offers multiple attractive benefits:
Still, there are alternative methods for selling real estate fast, but they each have multiple disadvantages.
Traditional Realtor. While many real estate agents work in your favor to get the best price, their 6% commission rate often more than makes up for this by eating away at any potential gains. And by selling to a traditional retail buyer, you are exposed to risks related to financing contingencies (such as waiting to close until a retail buyer’s prior home is sold). Also, many retail buyers need to back out from closing in the 11th hour, leaving the seller to start over from square one. During an elongated sales process, you will have to keep paying your mortgage, utilities, and other up-keep costs. These problems are alleviated when you sell your house fast to a real estate investor.
Short Sale. A short sale could be an option if your bank is willing to negotiate the amount left on the mortgage. However, not only is there a low success rate of being approved by your bank for a short sale, federally backed mortgage guidelines often require a minimum two-year wait after short sales. Also, your credit score will decline by 85 to 160 points. Low credit scores also make it more difficult to buy a car or rent an apartment.
Auction. An alternate method to sell your home fast is with an auctioneer. However, there is no guarantee the property will sell or that you will receive the price you desire. If the auctioned price only just reaches slightly over the reserve price, you may be disappointed with the outcome.
