You may want to sell your home fast when faced with a financial crunch, or when you have to move to another city or state for personal or professional reasons, or to avoid a foreclosure on your house. When there is an urgent need to dispose your property, you need to understand the difference between selling your home and selling your home fast!
For instance, Virginia Reese needs to sell her home fast! A resident of Washington, D.C, and a graduate in computer science from the University of Baltimore, she will be taking up her dream job at a Silicon Valley start-up in California. She has always wanted to work and live in the Mecca of IT industry. Aiming for a long-term career in this industry, Betty plans to call California her home for the rest of her life.
She understands that moving to a new state, however exciting, would also be a challenge – financially, emotionally, and otherwise. She has decided to sell off her house in Washington, D.C, the one she inherited from her parents, to make some money and to stop worrying about its maintenance.
Reese started looking for house buying companies that could help her sell the home quickly. She met up with some real estate agents who promised her that they would list the property on their website for a commission of 6%. They also wanted the house in a decent condition to attract potential buyers – meaning no clutters, no leaky faucets, no Grandma wallpaper, no outdated kitchen cabinets, no stained bathtubs, water/mildew stains, inside or outside of the house, no personal items in the living room – as buyers would inspect every aspect of the property personally. The agent also informed her that they would personally visit the house to estimate its value, and arrive at a sale price.
On the day of the appraisal, the agent found that the house needed some major repairs to make it appealing and attractive to the buyers; he listed out a few areas that needed minor touch ups and some places that needed major work. The list of such improvements was long and Reese had neither the time nor the financial ability to complete the repairs. Dejected, she decided to leave her house vacant and head to California for her new job.
