Sell Your House Without Any Cost
Did you know you can sell your house without any cost? Sounds ridiculous?
If you have listed a Nashville house in the past, you know that it can be an expensive and time-consuming process. Depending on the property and situation, home sellers in Nashville face a number of costs when putting their homes on the MLS. Listing can require you to make repairs, upgrades, improve curb appeal, do excessive cleaning, marketing, staging, and maintaining your house in a clean and tidy presentation every day for showings and open houses. It gets old quickly.
Whether you choose to work with a direct buyer or list the property on the Nashville MLS, in order to avoid costs, the property will need to be sold as-is. More often than not, this means selling the house quickly to an investor or to a private buyer. While you can choose to list it, houses that need work don’t always photograph well and could end up sitting on the market for a while before a buyer comes along. Most people looking for houses on the MLS are looking for a property that they can move into right away, without having to spend any time or money fixing it up. If you are able to sell your house as-is, you will potentially be able to save yourself thousands of dollars! According to BankRate, you can expect to spend about 10% of the price of the house when you list it on MLS. These costs come from updating and making repairs, commissions, and fees paid to real estate agents.
Finding The Right Buyer
Not all buyers are up for making repairs. If your house needs some work, you will need to find people up for the task. Houses that aren’t visually appealing don’t do as well on the MLS and can be difficult to sell. Pictures are the first thing people see, so a run-down house isn’t going to look as appealing as the turnkey property next door. If you are selling your house as-is, without making repairs or upgrades, you’ll need to find a buyer who is ready to take on the challenge.
Local Nashville investors can help you by purchasing your property outright without any hassles or hang-ups. Just keep in mind that not all investors are the same. Some won’t be able to follow through on their offers and some won’t make realistic offers at all. That’s not the case with Southern Homes Investments! When you sell your house to us directly, you will be able to avoid commissions, repair costs, and many other expenses Nashville homeowners face when selling their properties. Plus, you will never have to worry about the sale falling through at the last minute. Speaking of the sale, we can close as quickly as 7 days or when you are ready, and we pay all closing costs.
Where You Can Save
There are numerous costs sellers face when putting their house on the MLS. Most houses require repairs and possibly upgrades to stay competitive with others on the market. Some homeowners opt to decorate or stage their home to make it more appealing for photos and showings. There are continued costs, known as holding or carrying costs, while the house sits on the market for things like utilities, maintenance, insurance, and taxes. Then, to top it all off, when the house does eventually sell, the homeowner will have to pay thousands of dollars in fees and expenses. These expenses include agent fees, commissions, and possible buyer’s closing costs of 2-3% of purchase price which will likely total thousands of dollars.
Also, when you are dealing with private buyers, you should be prepared for negotiations after the inspections. Almost every home inspection finds a list of repairs, some lists are 2 and 3 pages long, the buyer will ask the seller to fix. If the appraisal value comes in low, then the buyer will expect the seller to lower the purchase price to match the appraisal value. And if your buyer is using financing, the house needs to appraise high enough in order for the loan to be approved.
All of these costs can add up to a fortune and carry a load of stress and uncertainty. Many home sellers walk away with much less then they had intended when listing a house in Nashville. With a fast and direct sale to Southern Homes Investments, all of the aforementioned costs, fees, appraisals, and holding costs can be avoided, helping you to sell your house without any cost and much faster. Wouldn’t you rather just sell the home as-is for cash in a few days? Do you really want to spend thousands and thousands of dollars on repairs, commissions, closing costs, and wait 2 to 6 months or more? Do you really want this stress and uncertainty of selling?
If you are able to find a buyer who can close quickly on the house, you will potentially be able to sell your house without any cost, saving you thousands of dollars and months sitting on the market. The costs of owning a house add up fast. Ask any flipper and they will tell you that the longer you hold a property, the more it is ultimately costing you. If you list your house, it could take months before the home is finally closed. But with a fast and direct sale, without agents or lenders, you will immediately be free of the property’s financial requirements. There will be no more tax obligations, homeowner’s insurance premiums, utility bills, or maintenance costs.
By working with us, you won’t have to pay for repairs, cleaning, marketing, or any more holding costs. You will receive a fast closing, providing you with your cash right away. You’ll be able to immediately end all holding costs and troubles you are facing that have arisen from your unwanted Nashville house.
