There's many circumstances that can lead a homeowner to the decision to sell their property. Sometimes, properties are unwanted and become a great burden. Things like inherited homes, rental properties that aren’t quite working out, properties in foreclosure, and properties in bad shape may seem better off in someone else’s hands.

NO MATTER YOUR SITUATION WE CAN HELP

We help hundreds of home owners in difficult situations every year

At Home Buyers USA, we’ve seen and worked with clients from a variety of situations. We may be able to help you work with your lender, bypass high commission rates, and unload even the most undesirable of properties no one else wants. If you would like to sell your home in a more traditional way, here are a few options with different situations.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT SALES METHOD FOR YOUR HOME

SELLING THROUGH A REALTOR

When deciding how to sell your property, a homeowner’s first thought is almost always turning to a realtor. In the state of California, the average realtor commission is approximately 4.7%, which is less than the average standard of 6%. Houses that are hard to sell due to damage, undesirable location, or extreme time constraints may warrant a higher commission rate.

Selling through a realtor is not your only option however. You can also sell your home yourself. Some states require a licensed real estate agent to review the paperwork during the by owner sale process, but California is not one of them. This means that homeowners have the green light to sell their homes as they see fit. While the freedom may feel exciting, it certainly doesn’t make the process any easier.

Sell Through a Realtor
For Sale by Owner

FOR SALE BY OWNER

With a by owner sale, you’ll be responsible for all of the advertising costs. You’ll pay to list your home and promote that listing. It’s up to you to determine a reasonable asking price, and that involves thoroughly researching similar homes in your area.

Too high and your home may sit on the market unsold. Too low, and you’re practically giving away money. You’ll have to stage the home yourself, give potential buyers the tours, and complete all of the required paperwork on your own. It’s a lot trickier than it looks. If your home is difficult to sell or you’re facing financial adversity, you can always turn to a reliable home investor.

SELLING TO AN INVESTOR

The fastest way to sell a home is to a cash buyer. With a cash buyer, you won’t have to wait for a mortgage loan to get approved, and there’s virtually no risk of the buyer falling through. If you need to sell your home quickly and you don’t have the time or resources to add value, repair, or advertise your home, a home investor is the quickest way to complete the process.

This is a great solution if there’s significant damage to the property that you cannot afford to fix or simply don’t desire to fix. Investors also purchase properties that are in or near foreclosure, probate properties, and unwanted rentals or vacation homes that could use a little bit of a revamp.

When you want to sell to an investor, you don’t have to list your home. Just contact the investor, and they’ll make you an offer in a relatively short period of time. There are many great benefits when working with an investor. You bypass a lot of the red tape of the traditional real estate process, and interested investors will always buy right away. It saves you a lot of time, and allows you to move on quickly.

Does your home need repairs?

DOES YOUR HOME NEED REPAIRS OR UPGRADES?

Average costs for the most basic roof replacement vary by region, and California homeowners can expect to shell out an average of $6,256 on a utilitarian roof – the highest average in the country. If you don’t have the funds to fix it, or doing so would be an unwise use of capital, home investors may still be interested in your property.

They’ll make you an offer that’s less the cost of the repairs, saving you time and the money you may have otherwise spent. This is particularly helpful if you won’t see a return on your investment. You’ll also be eliminating the real estate agent’s commission, which drives the sale profits down even further.

FINDING HONEST INVESTORS

If you’ve chosen home investment as an alternative to foreclosure, a swift end to probate, or a means of resolving issues with a damaged property you don’t want to fix, the process is very straightforward.

Most investors are prepared to deal with the court, as they already know what the court wants to hear. They already have great contractors working on their side, and they’re prepared to handle all kinds of home damage.

Buying and selling homes are very large transactions, and many scam artists are eager to get their hands in the piles of money. As soon as one scam ends, another one pops up. A lot of these scams take advantage of loopholes in local laws that will allow them to profit off of vulnerable homeowners.

Certain resources exist, such as the California Association of Realtor’s Scam Watch that can help keep you up to date on scams plaguing your area. Always thoroughly research any potential investors and read testimonials from homeowners who have experience working with the company before you proceed with any deals.

Make sure you never sign something you don’t completely understand, and remember that if something seems too good to be true, it is.

CALIFORNIA INVESTORS SPECIALIZE IN HELPING HOME OWNERS IN DIFFICULT SITUATIONS

What to Do in Foreclosure

When in foreclosure you’re free to sell your home all the way up to the moment where the foreclosure is completed, but starting sooner will prevent the financial circumstances from worsening.Read more

What to do as a Landlord

If your property isn’t occupied, you can sell it just like you would any other property. If you have tenants you can no longer work with, you’ll have to remove them from the home.Read more

What to do if you're in Probate

Probate isn’t necessary in every situation. If it's necessary in your situation, you'll need to start before anything can be sold or transferred. Once an executor is assigned (if one wasn’t named in the will), that executor has a considerable amount of independence. Read more

What to do if Home needs repairs

Some repairs are not at all worthwhile when it comes to return on investment. If the damage is to the extent where you fear no one will buy your home unless the repairs are completed, you may feel obligated to complete them. Read more
