If you own a home and you’re thinking, wondering, “how do I sell my house fast in Phoenix,” this blog post is a quick tutorial on your available options, and how you decide which option is right for you.
The speed of selling your home comes down to three main factors:
1. How long you’re willing to take to sell your house
2. How much you’re willing to spend to sell your house
3. How much you’re asking for your house
The first factor is: how long are you willing to take to sell your house? Most people think of selling their home the traditional way, by listing through an agent. This method of selling can take 3 to 6 months (sometimes longer, depending on market conditions). So if you have a lot of time and are not in any rush, this might be a good option for you.
However, many homeowners don’t want to wait that long. Usually people sell because they need to move and they don’t always have 3 to 6 months (or longer) to wait for a sale. So there is another option, and that is to bypass the agent and sell directly to a home buyer.
Most people are surprised by this question because they don’t realize that they have to spend money to sell their house but if you sell the traditional way, there are two times that you have to spend money: before you list, when you renovate your property to get it ready to sell; and after you sell, when you pay your real estate agent a commission for selling the property. Both of these can costs THOUSANDS of dollars.
Not all homeowners are comfortable SPENDING all that money in order to SELL their house. If you’re a homeowner who would prefer to keep more in your pocket, you have another option: you can sell your house direct to a homebuyer like us at The Trusted Home Buyer. We buy houses as-is and take care of all costs (and there are no fees or commissions).
Some homeowners believe that the market price for their house will be high, so they’re willing to wait and gamble and see if a buyer will purchase it for that price. When a buyer is eventually found, they MIGHT offer more, the same, or less than the asking price.
But not all homeowners like the “unknown” of this gamble. They don’t want to wait months in the hopes that someone will offer what they’re asking. They subscribe to the saying, “a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush”, meaning that they’d rather work with a home buyer – even one who might offer slightly less than a market price – in order to know EXACTLY how much they can get for their house right this very instant.
If you’re a homeowner and you’re wondering, “What are my options to sell my house fast in Phoenix?” then it really comes down to these 3 factors that will determine whether you’re willing to list or to sell right now.
