Do you know how many homes sold in the United States in 2021? Nearly 7 million, and nearly all of these sales involved the same process:
The age-old process throws up many problems for homeowners who want to avoid a long and drawn-out sale and extortionate property repair fees.
Simply Homes could provide a solution.
Read on to learn the differences between working with a realtor and Simply Homes, the company that lets you sell your home for cash off-market.
The average home in the U.S. spent an average of 25 days on the market, according to the most recent statistics from Zillow. However, this timeline doesn't reveal the entire picture.
Tip: It can take an additional 30–45 days to close a sale after someone makes an offer on a home, and properties in "cold" markets can take months to sell.
The truth is, selling a home with a traditional realtor can be a slow process. That's because realtors need to create a listing for a property, get it noticed by the real people, and show potential buyers around the home. This lack of control can cause homeowners lots of stress:
"Even in a housing market where sellers hold the upper hand and buyers must compete for limited listings, homeowners find the process of selling their home stressful," says The Washington Post.
Simply Homes streamlines the home-selling process and can close in as little as seven days, making it one of the fastest ways to sell your property. You still get the highest possible price for your home, but you won't have to wait for a realtor to inspect, list, market, and sell your house. If you need a little longer to move, Simply Homes can wait as long as 60 days.
Typically, a realtor takes around a 6% commission after selling your home. But there are loads of other fees that you might not know about. These costs include notary fees, escrow expenses, and other closing costs. While many of these fees are the responsibility of the person purchasing your home, you can see how much money traditional realtors charge after a property sale.
Imagine if there were a way to sell your home for cash without these expensive costs? Simply Homes charges zero fees to sell your home, making it a cost-effective option.
If your home needs repairs or requires structural work, a realtor might recommend you resolve these issues before listing your property. Depending on the type of renovations you need, you could spend thousands of dollars to make your home more appealing to potential buyers. Renovations can also increase the cycle time of selling your home, which might not be ideal if you want a quick sale.
Simply Homes can purchase your home off-market for cash regardless of its condition. It doesn't matter if your home needs updating or repair work; you can sell it "as is" and generate a cash sum.
A realtor might organize an open house so potential buyers can view your property or arrange inspections where surveyors visit your property. As well as increasing the time it takes to sell your property, these visits can be an annoyance if you live in your home.
Simply Homes can buy your home as-is, so there's no need for any showings or inspections. You don't even need to clean your property before you sell your home for cash!
The average moving company charges between $25–50 per mover, per hour. If you are relocating to a property that isn't in your local area, expect to pay much more.
Simply Homes covers the cost of your move and won't charge you anything for the relocation to your new property. That could potentially save you hundreds of dollars that you can invest in your new home.
Here's how Simply Homes is different from a traditional realtor:
Simply Homes supports you during the entire process.
There's more than one way to sell your property. If you want to move in as little as seven days, regardless of the condition of your property, consider Simply Homes over a conventional realtor and sell your home for cash. You could still get a high offer for your home without any of the stress.
