Great question! And the answer is ‘it depends’. When selling your home, there are several considerations you have to make, the first of which being: Should I sell on my own or hire a realtor?
Depending on the condition of your home, going with a realtor can be a tough process. In order to get listed with one, they often require the home to be in the best condition possible. That can mean costly repairs and owning the home for longer than you anticipated. If you have the time and the cash to make this happen, a realtor can be a pretty good option because they will do the work of finding a buyer for you.
When selling your house on your own, some of the same considerations need to be made. You need to ask yourself questions like ‘What is my moving timeline?‘ and ‘How many repairs and renovations do I need to make in order for the house to be sellable?‘. Finding a qualified buyer for your home on your own can often be a long process. Additionally, depending on the condition of the home, getting it up to ‘selling condition’ can be quite costly. Again, if you have the time and money, this option has potential.
After reading over the above options, you’ll find that they have 2 things in common – They both require Time and Money. If you find that Time and Money end up being an obstacle in your situation, then your question has been answered:
Is selling my Chattanooga home as-is the best option for me? Yes!
With your question answered, you’ve found yourself in the right place, too! Blackjack Real Estate is what is known as a cash buyer. What this means is that your home is bought for cash in the condition it currently sits. You’ve identified that making costly repairs or renovations is not right for you and that you’d like to be out of the house in a time frame that you choose – no hoping a qualified buyer comes in the time you need.
Selling to a cash buyer like Blackjack Real Estate offers so many benefits. You move exactly when you are ready and do it while being paid cash for your home. You’ll know that selling your Chattanooga home as-is is right for you when:
Funds are Tight
Cosmetic fixes to your home are often not enough to entice a buyer to commit. Although painting walls and refinishing counter tops will go a long way to make it look nice, buyers are looking for issues in the ‘bones’ of the home. You might find that replacing the roof might be out of the budget. Even if you do fix the roof, was it the buyers main concern? Were they instead looking at the windows or the water heater? It’s hard to know what a buyer is most concerned with.
Selling your home as-is prevents you from having to worry about any of that. You can instead use the money you would have invested in repairs, along with the cash you receive for your house, to make your move far easier and enjoyable.
Time is a Factor
Selling your home as-is allows you to be in better control of your time. You don’t have to waste your time trying to fix a home you are leaving and you don’t have to keep the house show-room ready for a buyer walk-through. You can use that saved time for more important things in your life.
