How to Sell A Home for Cash -- in Central Valley, CA

Selling a home can take a toll if you take the traditional route of listing with local agents, waiting for good offers, organizing multiple showings and making sure your house is in top condition through the entire process.

Some life situations, however, call for swift liquidation of real estate, which is why many homeowners rely on all-cash home buyers who can buy their property quickly in its current condition.

If you need to sell your home fast without going through the hassle of selling through an agent, the following tips will help you prep your house for a quick cash sale.

But first, do you really need to fix your home for an ‘as-is’ cash buyer?

The truth is that if you’re looking for an all-cash sale to a professional home buying company, you need not spend a single penny on repairs or maintenance, as these companies buy homes as is and do the repair and renovation on their own. This saves homeowners hundreds and thousands of dollars in repairs as well as agent fees.

Moreover, seasoned home-buying companies such as Strategic REI are able to pay more for your house owing to the sheer volume of homes they buy each year, which helps keep their overheads low, allowing them to pass the benefit to you.
Nonetheless, if you have the time and resources, it doesn’t hurt to fix minor issues if that would get you a better price for your home.

How to spruce up your home for an all-cash sale

When you contact a home buying company, their representatives will visit your property to see its condition, ascertain its value and make you an offer. Before this happens, you can improve the overall appearance of your property with minor touch-ups.

Present a clean home

Even if a home is in run-down condition from the outside, nothing should stop you from giving it a thorough cleaning before you invite potential buyers to inspect the property. Don’t give up on the upkeep of your house just because you’ve decided to sell it to a business instead of an individual buyer.

A clean and well-kept property is sure to create a better impression on anyone, including commercial buyers. So keep it clean and free of clutter, get rid of bad odors and spruce up the front lawn for a good first impression.

Make small, affordable repairs

Even if you’re optimistic about finding a buyer who’ll take your home as is, take the time to tackle minor issues such as fixing a leaking tap, tightening loose door knobs and lubricating creaking hinges. It can be done easily, especially if you’re still living at the property.

These smaller issues should be taken care of, as it can take a few weeks before you find a cash buyer willing to pay the price you want. Just letting your property deteriorate will only indicate to potential buyers that you’re desperate to get rid of it at whatever price they’ll offer.
