How Does We Buy Houses Work In Tucson?
This is perhaps one of the biggest questions that I get asked as an Investing Realtor® here in Tucson, AZ. So often, when people who are looking to sell their homes quickly and are considering using a “We Buy Houses” type franchise in Tucson; they are left with more questions than answers!
If this is you, then no worries! This article will help dispel some of the myths, as well as perhaps share a tip or two that you could use to sell your home quickly with, or without the use of a We Buy Houses company in Tucson!
Selling Your Home In Tucson Fast
How Does We Buy Houses Work In Tucson?
One of the first things to consider is the speed in which you need to sell your home. If you are in a situation where you need to sell your home quickly, for cash, (to avoid foreclosure, or perhaps need to sell due to divorce, estate, or some other situation) then a “We Buy Houses” type of arrangement may be a good alternative to “Listing your home.”
What I’ve discovered in 23 years of real estate experience in the Tucson area is that the first concern one typically has is about the price that they might get from an all cash transaction. While Realtors® typically specialize in getting the “highest price and best terms” for the listings in their charge, a typical “We Buy Houses” company in Tucson does not.
Instead, when selling your Tucson home fast, especially with a We Buy Houses Tucson Company, the highest price and the best terms are not the top items on the table!
Typically, the average We Buy Houses unlicensed person who has a “bandit sign” or a “yellow letter in direct mail” has fewer than 2 years experience in the market, and worse yet; many have never done a single deal.. This is NOT the time to “test out their new business!”
The “We Buy Houses In Tucson” Experience
Typically, in the average “We Buy Houses Tucson” experience, you typically fill out a form (like mine) and the investor (who hopefully is local like me) will contact you to ask a few basic questions about your home. The less professional will make a super low offer over the phone to gauge your motivation level. If you seem willing enough to “unload” your property, then they will set up a further meeting.
At the meeting to discuss your home; either they, or their representative will meet you at the home. Typically, the condition, and situation are further explored, and it is at this point where the offer is made for your home.
Typically, unless you have taken the time to educate yourself to the market reality you are in; their “word” and their offer is the only basis that you have for determining value. Ouch!
Often, if you are in a serious “must sell my house NOW!” situation, you now find yourself in the unenviable position of “leaving money on the table…” Not because you did anything wrong, but because you did it backwards!
How We Buy Houses Works With An Investing Realtor®
One of the many advantages of selling your home fast to an Investing Realtor® is that I eliminate the dreaded worry of “giving your home away!” Arizona State Law and the National Association of Realtors® Code of Ethics requires me to let you know the value of your home as honestly as I can prior to your entering any contract to sell the home!
The benefit of this is clear. By a honest, professional assessment of your homes true value in the eyes of a ready, willing, and able buyer who is not “out to get your listing” is priceless!
Secondly, by working with an Investing Realtor® like myself, I close all of my transactions at a local title company using state approved real estate contracts! Unlike a two page contract that is heavily skewed towards the Buyer’s Rights and not yours, the State Contracts that I use are evenly applied. No unfair advantages here!
Finally, due to my extensive connections in the marketplace, as an Investing Realtor® I can make decisions quickly. Usually within 24 hours! You get an all cash offer, I waive my commissions, and pay all your normal closing costs! The price that you and I agree on is the amount you receive once title closes our escrow!
Why Do People Use We Buy Houses Companies In Tucson?
Usually, people seek out the services of an Investing Realtor® when they want a fast, safe, sale for their property. Typically, the properties that I deal with have a variety of problems. Some roof issues, some air conditioning, or even structural issues as catastrophic as fire damage.
Other properties are fine, but their owners do not have the time to wait the 60 days or more that it commonly takes a home to sell, and then another 45 days it takes to close. They simply do not have the time. An Investing Realtor® like myself has the experience, and the connections locally to close within a week if necessary!
