Are you thinking about selling your home for cash? If you need to sell your home quickly then selling for cash is a great choice. Whatever your situation may be (avoiding foreclosure, inheriting a home, dealing with divorce or unloading rental property), Ben wants to help you through the whole process. Here are 8 tips for selling your home for cash.
8 Tips For Selling Your Home For Cash
Have the paperwork on your house ready
Get all your paperwork together for your home to ensure a quick process. We have had several clients that realized they needed additional paperwork which just prolonged the sale process. If you aren’t sure if you have what you need, reach out to us, and we can tell you exactly what you need to know.
Different types of deeds
Speaking of having the right paperwork, you need to be sure you have the correct type of deed. The deed specifies who will own the property after the transaction is concluded. A warranty deed or a quitclaim deed are the two most common types. When selling your property, you should know that using a warranty deed means you are guaranteeing that the property is free of any liens or encumbrances. With a quitclaim deed, you are making no such assurances regarding the title to the property.
Keep records of your sale
Make sure you keep a copy of all documents for your own records. You don’t want to be missing any important documentation about the sale of your home. You may need it in the future or for tax purposes. Ask for a copy of all documentation when you reach out to our office.
Choose a local buyer
A local home buyer knows the market in your area way better than any online service will. When you work with a local buyer to sell your home for cash, you will get a better price than with a bigger corporation. If you are selling your home in Fishers, Carmel, Avon, Brownsburg, Lawrence or Greenwood area, Ben can help you. He is a local buyer and very familiar with the market in these communities.
Be honest about your home’s condition
We understand that your home may have issues. We do not expect a home to be in perfect shape when we buy it. There may be damage to the roof or siding from storms. Or there may be interior damage due to flooding or poor tenants. Whatever may have happened with your home, we understand. Just because your home may be in disrepair does not mean that we won’t buy it. The best thing you can do is to be honest about your home’s condition. If your home is not in the condition you describe to us, the price offer and sale process will take longer than it needs to. Be honest up front, and we will give you a fair and accurate price.
If you aren’t sure what something means or don’t feel comfortable with any part of the sale process, we encourage you to ask questions. At Ben Buys Indy Houses we strive to be up front and honest about every part of the cash sale process. It is not our intention to ever do anything to confuse our clients. We are open to helping you understand every part of the process so please ask questions.
Besides asking questions, be available for quick communication if you want the sale of your home to go quickly and smoothly. We completely understand that you have a lot going on in life. Especially with the different situations that our clients are in, there may be a lot of other issues you are dealing with at the same time you are trying to sell your home. However, if you want to sell your home quickly then we need to be able to get in touch with you. There may be just a few simple questions or paperwork that we need from you but that can hold up the whole process. If you know you are going to be out of town or unavailable, just let us know, so we can get all the information we need to get your sale process going.
Don’t worry about making repairs
Don’t think that you need to make any repairs or changes to your house before you contact us. You don’t have to have a perfect house to sell to us. If your home is outdated, has damage or is even just unattractive, we will still buy your home. If you are waiting until you can make some repairs before you try to sell, you don’t have to wait when you sell your home for cash. In a traditional home sale, you would have to make a lot of improvements to make your home attractive to home buyers. In a cash home sale, you can sell as is.
At Ben Buys Indy Houses we are committed to helping Indianapolis residents sell their homes for cash. We have helped many of your neighbors, and we want to help you too. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. We look forward to helping you sell your home quickly and get the money you need.
