There are a great many decisions involved when deciding to sell, and once you do, you face the next hurdle; what are my options for selling? Selling your home is one of the most significant financial transactions of your lifetime, and the method you use to sell can significantly affect your bottom line. Not every home is a good fit for the Riverside real estate market, and not every seller has the time, money, or interest in listing on the MLS. While it may not be your first choice, for some homeowners, the benefits of a direct sale could outweigh those of a conventional listing, but wouldn’t it be nice to know which is best for you? If you’ve decided it is time to sell, read on as we explore four things to compare when deciding between a listing and a direct sale for your Riverside home. For the purposes of this post, we shall consider a direct sale as the same as selling to an investor for cash. There are big differences between a cash buyer that is an investor, and a retail buyer that pays near the asking price on the MLS. A cash investor buyer like us at Beacon Realty Investments will take your house as-is, for cash, and close on your timeline. A retail buyer is going to need a mortgage, a home inspection, time for the lender to put all the paperwork together; will ask you to make repairs, etc. It’s important to note the difference.
The convenience of the sales method you use is something to compare when deciding between a listing and a direct sale for your Riverside home. Hybrid agent investors like those at Beacon Realty Investments will outline the steps of each, so you can decide if the convenience of a direct sale for cash outweighs the extra profits to be made by listing with an agent. The hybrid agent investors at Beacon Realty Investments can handle the transaction as your listing agent. As a real estate agent, your hybrid agent investor from Beacon Realty Investments will hire pros to market your home, listing on top sites. Or, acting as a direct buyer, your hybrid agent investor from Beacon Realty Investments will work with you as a professional investor if you decide to make a direct sale.
It’s essential to compare the expenses that accompany each method when deciding between a listing and a direct sale for your Riverside home. Hybrid agent investors like those at Beacon Realty Investments work transparently to provide you with the information you need to make an educated decision. The hybrid agent investors at Beacon Realty Investments fully detail how they added up their expenses to outline their commission, fees, marketing costs, and potential holding costs of listing acting as your agent. On the other hand, there are no listing expenses should you work with your hybrid agent investor from Beacon Realty Investments to make a direct sale, there are no commissions or hidden fees, no marketing, and you won’t even pay closing costs. How is that for selling options?
It would help if you also compared the time until your deal closes when deciding between a listing and a direct sale for your Riverside home. As a real estate agent, your hybrid agent investor from Beacon Realty Investments will advise you of the current average days on the market. Acting as a direct buyer, your hybrid agent investor from Beacon Realty Investments can provide a guaranteed closing date when you make a direct sale, typically within just 30 days. Or, if there is a specific calendar date you need to move, talk to your hybrid agent investor from Beacon Realty Investments about making arrangements. As buyers, we understand that you may need more time because we move fast, and not everyone is ready to move at our speed.
Prep and Repairs
Another thing to compare when deciding between a listing and a direct sale for your Riverside home is the financial and emotional cost of the prep work of tackling significant repairs. Curb appeal matters when you list, so you should consider refreshing your exterior paint, landscaping, and lighting to make your home more welcoming to buyers. Diving into significant repair projects can be scary if your home is not brand new or in like-new condition. More so if you inherited the house. Many sellers have concerns over what expensive secrets may hide behind the walls, under your roof, or floor, causing restless nights of worry over the inspection. Hybrid agent investors like those at Beacon Realty Investments acting as professional investors buy homes for cash in as-is condition, so you can rest easy when you make a direct sale. You don’t even need to clean it out. Take what you want, and leave the rest to us.
