How to Sell Your House in Less Than a Week

Posted on

There are several reasons why an individual may need to sell their house as fast as they can. You may be facing foreclosure, or you need to move out of state because of a job, or you’re just simply fed up because of a vacant property that’s bleeding money. Selling your house in less than a week may sound impossible but trust me, there’s a way. You can still get out of that situation.

One might think that selling it quickly will decrease the value of the property. Maybe. But do you think letting it sit in the market for 6 to 12 months will benefit you? If you really think about it, it’s way worse than any other possible solution out there. Not doing something about it is definitely not gonna help. If you’re first thought is selling through a traditional real estate agent is the solution — then I hate to say this, but you’re absolutely wrong. Selling through an agent will take an average of 3 to 6 months. Sometimes it could take up to a year. So that’s definitely out of the equation.

Your best bet is selling to a trustworthy home buying company. Here’s why:

NO MARKETING REQUIRED

If you sell through an investor, there won’t be any marketing required. You don’t have to go through the hoops of posting through social media, or paying hundreds of dollars for a newspaper advertisement, or putting a selling sign in your front yard for months — just to get a “maybe” from prospective buyers! It can be very devastating and quite frankly, you could somehow lose hope doing all these. That is why it makes more sense selling through an investor especially if you do not have any marketing talent. It is not needed since all an investor has to do is look into the property and they can give you an offer almost instantly. You’ll save time, money and the best of all energy!

NO REPAIRS NEEDED

There’s definitely no need to repair any part of the house. No matter how much work is needed — you will never be required to repair it. How much time would it take for you to take care of plumbing? Kitchen repairs? Bathroom upgrade? 1 month give or take. If you’re pressed for time, you definitely don’t have the luxury of going through all these things. These require plenty of time and thousands of dollars — if you sell through a realtor. But if you chose a good home buying company. You can skip this nightmare and just sell as-is. You won’t have to pick up a paintbrush. Heck, you won’t even have to clean the house.

CAN WORK COMPLETELY AROUND YOUR SCHEDULE

You may have heard dozen of horror stories about how slow-selling a house could be. That is partly true. A traditional agent takes their time during the sale. Of course, they want to make sure that every inch of the house is in good condition. They want it spotless and in “showroom” condition. And it’s the reason why the deal is so slow. It’s not that they’re wasting your time. It’s because they want to increase the amount that you could sell your house for — of course, because that’s where their commission is being calculated. It can be frustrating. Especially if you do not have the money to spare to go through all of this hassles. 

Working with an investor is a lot faster. You don’t have to wait for any closing periods. They can close within days! (in as little as 3 to 7 days). It may sound like a scam but it’s definitely not. All you have to do is tell the investor beforehand that you are pressed for time. They can work completely around your schedule and will even help you with any circumstances that you’re going through.
