Quick Tips to Remember When Looking For A Reputable Local Phoenix Cash House Buyer
Price it right
Price it right – When selling to a cash house buyer in Phoenix, keep in mind that they’re buying with cash, instead of using bank financing and they can close very quickly. We could buy your house in as little as 7 days from today if you wanted to sell that quickly rather than waiting 30 days to 9 months to sell your house the traditional “listing agent” route. This means that a professional house buyer won’t be able to pay as much as a retail buyer (someone living in the house) would.
This also means that you’re getting a quick/ hassle free sale and cash in your pocket so you can move on with your life! Check out this article on pricing your home to sell. So don’t go into the process with expectations of getting the same price on a quick cash sale that closes in a matter of days or weeks that you’d get with an agent listing your house to find the ideal retail buyer for months and months.
Be honest – Always tell the truth when giving descriptions of repairs and values. An experienced cash buyer will do their homework, so tarnishing a relationship and potentially hindering a sale in the name of saving a few bucks, is never worth it. Just be honest with your buyer, and they will work with you. Hiding issues about your house will only add complications.
Be flexible – Cash house buyers in Phoenix can often come up with creative solutions to your problems. Be flexible, and willing to share and listen to make the best of your situation.
We have several connections with home buyers across the valley, and we will always try to find the best option for your needs. Sometimes, we’ll find out that other options make a lot more sense for you, rather than us buying your house.
So, be flexible coming in, and we’ll let you know what we feel are the best options for your situation. Maybe that’s us buying your house in a win-win transaction and that's great! Or maybe it means you are selling your house another way (or finding a way to stay in your house) and we think that's great too!
