4 Simple Steps to an Easy Cash Home Sale
There are many steps associated with a traditional home sale, which is why it generally takes several months to complete the transaction:
- Hire a Realtor®
- Prepare the Property (repairs, staging, photography, etc.)
- Market the Property
- Property Previews (open houses and buyer tours)
- Review Purchase Offers
- Closing (home inspections, lender appraisals, escrow, etc.)
The above is a very simplified view of that standard real estate process if selling your house on the open market. The alternative to this is to sell your house for cash to a real estate investor. A cash home sale can be completed much faster. It is a safe, simple and convenient process if you work with the right buyer. Don’t trust a hand-written sign on the side of the road. Work with a reputable home buyer like PropertyLark for the best cash home sale experience.
Here are the 4 simple steps to our cash home buying process:
1. Contact Us
First, you have to reach out to us. The best way is to fill out the contact form that you’ll find on the right of this page and on just about every page of our website. Give us your name, contact info and a few details about your property. One of our representatives will contact you within one business day. We will ask a few more questions and discuss your home selling options. Then, we will provide you with a fair cash offer for your house within 24 hours of your contact.
2. Review Your Offer
Review the details of your cash offer from PropertyLark and determine if it is acceptable to you. Once you accept the offer, we can begin the final closing stages right away.
3. Set Your Move-Out Date
Not all real estate investors will be flexible with your move-out date. Most will want you out as soon as possible. PropertyLark works with you to set a desired move-out date. As long as it is within reason, we will give you the time you need to pack up and move out of your house.
4. Closing Process
The average escrow period for a traditional real estate transaction is 30-45 days. This is the time when home inspections happen, the buyer’s lender will perform an appraisal and the buyer still has time to back out until fairly late in the process. Or, delays and problems can happen if something is found in an inspection or the appraisal doesn’t line up with the selling price. With PropertyLark, the closing process is quick and simple. There is no escrow period. There are no home inspections or appraisals. There is no buyer funding at risk of falling through. We’re paying cash, which makes it easy. We’ve been able to close on houses within seven days. In general, it only takes a week or two before the deal is done and you have the funds wired to your account.
That’s the entire process in a nutshell. You don’t have to hire a real estate agent or prepare your home. You don’t need to make repairs or deal with any of the marketing. We will buy your house for cash in as-is condition. We’ll make you a fair cash offer based on current market value. We make the process fast, easy and safe!
