There are three ways to sell my house fast Baltimore and each can be used successfully. One method may be the best for your current situation.
Imagine a fictional couple. Jan and Randolph, just out of college. They use a real estate agent to purchase their first house. They fixed it up, added an outdoor patio, and updated the kitchen, and knocked out a wall between the kitchen and dining room to give it that open look that is so popular. They improved the curb appeal by adding a new lawn, shrubs and an automatic sprinkler, system while they raised their family. When it was time to seek a larger house for the growing family, they used the second method of selling: FSBO or For Sale by Owner.
Just Google FSBO and Portland and you will find all sorts of advice how to sell your home. One site AboutHome has an article by Elizabeth Weintraub titled How to Market Your House. It lists 10 steps to market your home. The site also has advice on all sorts of issues:
- Writing Offers and Negotiating Acceptance
- Getting to the Heart of Home Financing
- How to Find and Work With a Lender
- How to Find, Interview and Hire a Real Estate Agent
- Home Inspections
- Understanding Home Disclosures
Then Jan and Randolph decided to build their dream house for the family, and used the third method. They bought a lot in their desired location from a professional real estate investor. He carried the paper and the couple used the lot for a down payment on the construction loan. They discovered they could save money with sweat equity to stay within budget. They installed rolls of insulation, prepped the garage for its cement floor, and, of course, the landscaped.
Their current neighborhood is very desirable. It’s close to town and transportation, and the schools are great. However the houses were built in the early twenties. They may be too small or functionally obsolete for today’s home buyers. Now, we have professional real estate investors buying existing homes in Jan and Randolph’s neighborhood from retiring couples yearning to be expats and see the world
In today’s economy, there are many reasons to consider using a real estate investor. Their specialties include:
- Foreclosure Avoidance
- Debt Removal or Renegotiation
- Refinancing Homes in Foreclosure
- Selling Property without Realtor Commissions
- Resolving Title Issues
- Relocation Assistance
- Buying abandoned Properties
- Solving Environmental or Structural Problems, and more
- Don’t forget the main one. A real estate investor will buy for cash now! The two other methods require many steps that can take time. A real estate investor can close in 30 to 45 days, even in a week in some cases.
In a recent article about this subject, “Forbes” wrote that real estate investors provided:
Flexible Payment Options – Investors may offer various payment methods such as certified funds, cash, pre-scheduled cash payments, or perhaps they may even take over the existing mortgage completely.
Selling “As Is” – Typically, investors offer to purchase a property “as is,” many times sight unseen. As a seller, that allows you to avoid any costly repairs that would normally be considered your financial responsibility.
Fast Closings – There are investors who can close within 7 days
