How to Get Cash for Your Home Today
Swift Homes makes it easy for people to get a cash offer for their home and close on their own timeline. When you work with us, you avoid the hassles of dealing with aggressive realtors and the headaches of online listings and broker/listing fees.
This blog explores how to avoid going through a realtor to get cash for your home today…so carve out a few moments from your schedule, relax and get ready to have your entire perspective on modern realty changed forever.
So…You Want to Sell Your House?
The average six-percent sales commission that most real estate agents get is indeed a high price to pay, even though six percent can be advertised by them as marginal. Consider the economists who have been saying realtors don’t sell homes for significantly more than the asking price. The question we must ask, then, is this: If you’re not getting much more money when using a real estate broker to sell your home, why use one at all?
Stanford University researchers found that without the Multiple Listing Service, or MLS as we call it in the industry (available to all real estate brokers), using a broker reduces the selling price of a typical home by 5.9 to 7.7-percent. A real estate company’s costs are not worth paying for, the study found, when the MLS assistance is taken out of the realtor’s hands.
Indeed, the key here is to find alternatives to traditional real estate agents, such as companies that sell services individually or for a flat fee to get your home on the MLS. Here at Swift Homes, our top priority is to get all our customers the best price and best service when selling their home, and we begin this process by educating sellers about what they need to know before putting their house on the market.
What to Know Before Selling Your Home
This is something we cover on our own website, but is worth highlighting here because it’s so important. When you’re ready to put your home up for sale and garner some cash from the transaction, it’s vital to consider the following questions:
- How much is my home actually worth?
- How much does it cost to sell my home?
- Should repairs be made before the sale?
- What are all my options when selling my home?
- Should I use a real estate agent?
- How soon will I get cash for my home?
- How does it work should I enlist the services of Swift Homes?
- What do other sellers have to say about Swift Homes?
We already covered the basics regarding using a realtor in these situations, so let’s now take a closer look at the how-fast-for-cash and Swift Homes factors.
Just to reiterate: When dealing with a real estate agent, you are typically looking at buyers who are interested in purchasing the home to actually live there, and this may mean that they cannot find the best offers for your home. Listing your home with an agent also means that you can be waiting months before you see any cash – indeed, you may experience weeks of people coming through your home for showings, a delayed closing while your buyer is getting a mortgage approved or other tasks that you are responsible to manage.
By going through Swift Homes, you can close on your timeline, and we take care of all the repairs after closing. The traditional notion of listing agents being able to close more efficiently is being dispelled by our ability to deliver sellers cash fast.
How Soon Will You Get Cash for Your Home?
When you sell your home to us, we can close fast – all we need is to have a home inspection done and the title to be cleared. As soon as the title clears and we schedule a closing date, you will get your cash the same day that we close. It’s as simple as that.
With Swift Homes, you know exactly when you’re getting your cash, and that’s where we stand out from the realtor community; other options won’t provide you certainty when it comes to receiving funds from your sale, the swiftness on closing timeline, and the savings of commission from paying a realtor.
How Does it Work if You Choose Swift Homes?
The bottom line is this: Swift Homes can help you sell your home with ease, our experts bringing with them a time-tested and methodical approach that helps sellers in all types of situations close transactions in a quick and hassle-free manner. We look to purchase your home as-is – in cash – to get you the best deal possible, and because we are a single-family rental fund, we look to purchase your home, perform repairs and rent it out.
