How To Sell Your House Fast

The traditional process of selling your home can be a daunting one. From agents, inspections and contingencies to financing approval, it can often be overwhelming. Especially when you need your house sold fast. By selling your house for cash, you can avoid all of this and drastically speed up the process. This guide will show you exactly how you can sell your house to a cash home buyer from start to finish.

All you need is a Phone or a reliable form of communication

What is a Cash Home Buyer?

A cash home buyer is a person, company or entity (usually a real estate investor) who is capable of buying your house in cash without relying on traditional forms of financing such as a bank or other 3rd party lending institutions. As a result of purchasing houses with their own funds, the home buyer is the sole decision maker and therefore does not need any third party approvals such as the financing or inspection approvals that are found in traditional house sales. Since the home buyer doesn’t need these approvals, they can drastically speed up the process of selling your house. Here are the 5 simple steps to selling your house fast in NY.

  1. Choose A Cash Home Buyer

Find and pick your favorite local cash house buyer that you feel comfortable working with. The easiest way of doing this is to do a search on Google. Search for “Sell my house fast in [yourCity][yourState]”, “Cash home buyers in [yourCity][yourState]”, “Sell my house for cash [yourCity][yourState]”, or “Cash for my house in [yourCity][yourState].” Any of these searches will bring up multiple different home buyers near you. It is important to find a company who is listed near the top of Google underneath the ads. This is important because the ad results are often not local home buyers and are often large national companies who are paying a lot of money to show up at the top of Google. You can tell if a search result is an ad by looking for the word “Ad” written before the Google listing.

2. Do Your Research

Choosing the right home buyer for you is very important. Not all cash buyers are the same. The way they calculate their offer can often vary from company to company. Go to their “About Us” and “How It Works” pages and read enough about them to feel comfortable. The best cash buyers should be completely transparent and upfront with you. This is crucial so that they don’t waste your time. It is important that they are easy to get in touch with by phone, so you can ask any questions about how it works selling to a cash home buyer, and get to know them. Make sure that whatever home buyer you choose has a high quality website with clear explanations of their process. The quality of their website is usually reflective of their business as a whole.

3. Submit Your Information

All cash home buyers websites will ask you to submit a few details of your information. This is most commonly your name, address, and a reliable way of contacting you. It is also normal for them to ask details about the property condition. They use this information to analyze your property to help them determine how much money they can offer you. After providing this information, they will contact you by phone to discuss the property with you.

4. Schedule An Appointment

After the information is received, the next step is to make an appointment with the buyer where you can get to know them and walk the property together. This gives you a chance to get comfortable and know who you’re working with, as well as ask any questions you might have about the process. At the end of this appointment, the offer will be presented and discussed. All reputable home buying companies will do this for free and there should never be any obligation to accept the presented offer. As a reputable buyer, they should understand that this is often a difficult time in your life and they should make you feel comfortable and confident with their company and process.

5. Pick A Closing Date And Get Paid!

If the offer that you’re given is fair and to your satisfaction, you then pick a closing date that works best for you. The closing attorney will handle the agreement and payment and upon closing, you’ll get your cash and that’s it. You’ve successfully sold your house to a cash buyer! There should be no fees to you in this process, as most reputable cash buyers will cover all of the closing costs for you.
