5 Ways to Get Top Dollar Selling to a Professional Home Buyer
Planning on selling your home to a professional home buyer? Want to get top dollar?
We’re guessing the answer is a BIG yes.
While a lot of people assume that professional home buyers give lowball offers, most of them are able to make cash offers that are close to what you would net after going through the traditional selling process.
It’s definitely possible to get a sizable cash offer. To help you do just that, here are 5 ways to get top dollar when selling to a professional home buyer:
- Be Upfront About the Property
Besides the fact that being honest just makes for good business relations, if you’re not up front about your property’s defects, the professional home buyer may err on the side of caution when coming up with a cash offer. And being weary, they may also overlook your property’s good points.
- Be as Detailed as Possible
When giving information about the property, you want to be as detailed as possible. Make sure you can provide things like the age of the roof, how old the HVAC is, the last time it was repaired, and when you updated the plumbing.
- Allow Easy Access
You want to make it as easy as possible for the home buyer to access and assess the property. This will allow them to come up with an accurate budget for repairs, which will help them to give you the fairest price possible. Not a good time to let your pitbull out or lock your side gate.
- Make Your Property Presentable
A dirty, cluttered house is likely to set off red flags for a pro home buyer, causing them to inspect it more thoroughly. Make sure everything is clean and looking nice, as you would if you were selling the traditional route. And be sure to point out all the selling points.
- Be Clear About What You Want
As Stevie Wonder once said, “If you don’t ask, you don’t get.” If you need to close in 14 days and want to net 100k, don’t shy away from flat out telling the investor that. Many of them have a knack for coming up with creative solutions such as taking over a mortgage or other creative solutions to fit your scenario.
