Selling a house can be overwhelming. It’s a valuable asset, an unfamiliar process, and there are many factors involved in making a fair decision. In talking with hundreds of sellers over the years we have learned that Speed is one of the most important factors. Speed is a buyer’s ability to buy…and therefore a seller’s ability to Sell a House Fast. Here you will learn about Speed >>> How to Sell a House Fast in San Antonio. If you want to Sell a house fast in San Antonio you can Get a fair cash offer today using our simple, free & easy process at mattbuyshousestx.com. Speed plays a rSole in almost every other factor.
• Cash – why does someone want Cash for Houses over other funding options? Because cash is more reliable and doesn’t suffer the same delays traditional lending does. This article states that “…the average amount of time it takes for homebuyers in the US to close on their home is 47 days…” Add to that the risks of a slowing market, low appraisal, cold feet, or other delay-inducing outcomes and it could take months to sell a home. Cash definitely impacts the Speed factor.
One of my tenants contracted a house recently. Closing was set and they were really excited. As closing approached they were delayed and asked for an extra month’s rent. The revised closing came and went, then came a request for “one more month rent”. More delays happened, the Seller’s spouse passed, and the deal fell thru. What if you had been the Seller in that situation? Wouldn’t you have preferred the speed Cash for a House would have brought.
• Repairs – why is We Buy Ugly Houses one of the most popular searches for business like mattbuyshousestx.com? Because sellers do not want to deal with costly repairs, challenging fixes, or giving “concessions” to retail buyers to make these fixes on a house that is well passed it’s prime. They’re just done with the delays and costs, and sometimes they’re just too embarrassed to give everyone a peak behind the curtain. When We Buy Houses we buy them As Is. A house’s problems become our problems. We deal with them so you don’t have to. This makes it Fast to Sell a House since we don’t waste time haggling over the price of a new water line or roof repair. We even buy hoarder houses and take care of the clean out.
We recently contracted with a Seller who had lived in their house for 40 years. It remains in a prime location, but had certainly seen better days. The Seller knew they could list the property and likely receive much higher than I could offer, but because they knew the property might sit on the market and would likely be scrutinized by potential buyers and nosy neighbors, they chose to sell to me knowing they wouldn’t need to replace even a lightbulb, and that I would close in a few weeks.
• Honesty – while sometimes an honest answer isn’t the easiest answer, honesty is a major factor in Selling a House Fast. Why is that? #1 – every Seller, no matter the situations they find themselves in deserves the dignity and respect of being treated with honesty and integrity. #2 – since price and speed are the 2 main factors, an unscrupulous or inexperienced buyer may tie up a house under contract, only to take longer than promised or come back and renegotiate a lower price. Unfortunately I’ve lost opportunities to help Sellers in just this scenario. At Matt Buys Houses TX we choose people over profit, so we will treat you with the dignity and respect you deserve…even when it costs us a deal. Check out other’s testimonials about us here.
I’m always troubled when Sellers tell me they were promised a ridiculously high price, or insanely fast timeframe. Sometimes I am pleasantly suprised, but often the Seller suffers from delays or renegotiations. This year a friend referred their friend to me. They were capital “D” Done dealing with a house in San Antonio so I made them my offer with closing in 10-14 days. A few days later they called and were accepting a different offer for $2,500 more (which I would have overcome) and closing in 2 days. While possible, I explained to them that it was extremely unlikely that a 2 day close could happen. To be sure I checked with my Title Company and 2 lender friends, all of whom said the same thing…about 8-10 days…possibly less if title was extremely simple and clean. The Seller said their buyer must have “called in a favor” and they stuck with the other offer. I told them I’d circle back and if they performed I would love this buyer’s information. When I checked back I found out their buyer used the same Title Company I use, and that they had experienced delays. Imagine that! Undoubtedly I will continue to lose opportunities when competitors overpromise and underdeliver, but imagine the regret, frustration, etc they would have saved by going with a trusted Buyer.
• End Buyer vs Wholesaler – who you are actually dealing with is a major factor as well. Are you dealing with an End Buyer person like Matt Buys Houses TX that will actually pay Cash for Houses in San Antonio and throughout Texas, or a middle man with less at stake? An End Buyer is more likely to follow thru because they will typically be spending out of pocket money to contract the house, complete some level of due diligence, and to secure the funds necessary to pay Cash for Houses in Texas. A Wholesaler may spend a little out of pocket money, but they are looking for someone like Matt Buys Houses TX to actually close on the property. If they can’t find someone to close as fast as they promised, or to pay as much as they promised, they will either cancel your contract forcing you to re-start the process, or more likely renegotiate a lower price or later closing date to get the deal done. Typically price & speed will be impacted by the answer to this question. To be sure there is a time and place for wholesaling, and I will even occasionally utilize this strategy in my business after discussion with my customers, and I do business with many great wholesalers, but as a Seller you should know who you’re dealing with and their intentions for your property.
I occasionally purchase from wholesalers so I receive information about properties they have under contract. Over the years I have received information on properties that I offered on and didn’t get under contract. Sometimes I’ll see price drops and dragging timelines indicating that they can’t find a buyer. Something to keep in mind when dealing with The End Buyer and a wholesaler.
A final note…while Speed is a factor when looking to Sell a House Fast, it doesn’t mean close in 2 days…rarely is it necessary to close that fast! What most are looking for is Closure. Sellers don’t want to think about it, work on it, hassle with it anymore…you’re done with it. To do that look for a trusted Home Buyer like Matt Buys Houses TX. We Pay Cash for Houses. We Buy Houses As Is. We are Honest House Buyers. We are the End Buyer for your house, and if we won’t be then you will know that before deciding to Sell Your House to us.
