Sell Now for Cash!

 

If time is one your side, selling your home using a realtor is e a good option. If time is not on your side for unplanned reasons like relocation, job change, health or injury, divorce, or just needing cash, selling your home to real estate investors for cash can be very smart.

Let’s look at a couple of examples:

Example #1 – selling my house using a realtor

Using a residential realtor can be very effective. An experienced realtor will know the value of your home compared to others similar homes in the area. They will make suggestions on any modifications, updates, or repairs that will make your home stand out in the market and sell faster than the other homes for sale in your area. They will take pictures and list your home on their company’s website. They will likely put up signs around town and schedule open houses.  They will network your home to other realtors. For all this you will normally pay a fee of 6% of the sale price.

Selling your home can take anywhere from 30 days to 6 months depending on its value, condition, and the experience of your realtor.

Let’s look at an example.

What Seller takes home at CLOSING $205,500
Item  Amount
Home Asking Price  $ 260,000
Negotiations on Asking Price  $ (9,100)
Realtor Fee  $ (15,000)
New Roof  $ (12,000)
Modest Updates (Paint, carpet, etc.)  $ (8,000)
Modest Repairs (fence, landscaping, water heater, dripping sink, A/C, etc.)  $ (4,000)
4 months Mortgage & Taxes  $ (6,400)

 

Also remember, you will be showing your home over a period of months. Its not unusual to have to show your home 20-50 times.  These showings are usually on very short notice and can be very inconvenient and require you to keep the house clean, the lawn and landscaping constantly maintained, and your schedule flexible. You also will be scheduling and managing the necessary repairs and projects needed to get the home ready for sale.

 

Example #2 – Selling my home to real estate investor for CASH now

Sometimes the money needed to repair or fix your home or the time it takes to sell your home with a realtor isn’t an option. 2 Tall Guys are real estate investors and have the funding available to offer cash for your home and can close very quickly without standard closing costs or hidden fees. Once we see the house, understand the Title, and pay for a Home Inspection, we can usually close in as little as 7 days.

Here is an example:

What Seller takes home at CLOSING $ 181,200.00
Item  Amount
ARV or After Repair Value of Home  $ 250,000
CASH Offer for Home AS-IS ***  $ 182,000
Realtor Fee  $ –
New Roof  $ –
Modest Updates (Paint, carpet, etc.)  $ –
Modest Repairs (fence, landscaping, water heater, dripping sink, A/C, etc.)  $ –
15 Days of Mortgage, Taxes, and Ins.  $(800)

*** CASH OFFER – this is an example ONLY.  The cash offer for your house will depend on many factors including condition, location, required updates, needed repairs, neighborhood characteristics, etc.

So yes, if you have the time and the money, listing with an experienced realtor is your best option. But, if time is not on your side and you need cash fast, selling to a real estate investor can be a viable choice given the circumstances and provide you cash very quickly.

 

Sell Your Home Later

What does that mean?

If you can wait to sell your house, but need help covering the house payment now, a Leasing to Buy arrangement might be a good fit.  Maybe you have relocated or are downsizing or upsizing and so now you have two mortgage payments. You tried to sell, but for several reasons the house wasn’t getting the interest you desired.  Renting is an option, but you don’t want to be responsible for collecting rent or taking care of repairs while being a Landlord.

Leasing with Option to Buy arrangements are when a Tenant leases your home AS-IS and agrees to be responsible for repairs and most maintenance and has an option to buy the house at a future date for an agreed to Selling Price.

Here are some the benefits of utilizing a Lease Purchase arrangement:

  • The Option Price is your full asking price you want for the house. No need to negotiate with a potential buyer.  The Option Price and Option Period is established upfront.
  • There are many people that are very close to being ready to finance that need a lease purchase to finish meeting their lender’s guidelines. Maybe they are self-employed or maybe they are improving their credit. There are several reasons why good families have trouble getting a mortgage with today’s tight standards and requirements.
  • Leasing to Buy tenants are not typical renters. They treat the home with care and commitment because they fully intend on exercising the option to buy as soon as they can qualify for a mortgage.
  • Have a Tenant in your home within 45-60 days. 2 Tall Guys has a strong network to quickly find the right Tenant for your house.
  • You pay nothing to 2 Tall Guys. There are no fees and no closing costs for seller/landlord.
  • Minimal maintenance expenses! Most maintenance is up to the tenant/buyer and it is highly recommended that they purchase a Home Warranty.
  • There are possible tax benefits like depreciation. It is advised for seller to work with a tax specialist to understand their particular situation.

Walk Away With a Little Cash

Sometimes the numbers just don’t work for a cash purchase and the time left before your bank acts is just weeks or days away. It’s not uncommon for homeowners to feel there is no choice but to “walk away” and let the bank take the home. We understand this is a horrible and emotional decision for you and your family and one that has long lasting repercussions. Foreclosures can stay on your credit report for 7 years.

There are options, however!

While the options are much more limited, there are ways to stop the foreclosure and keep it off your credit record allowing you the best chance of purchasing a home again soon. At this point, it’s not likely you can or want to stay in this home, but 2 Tall Guys can not only stop or delay the foreclosure, but also provide you with a little cash for moving expenses, relocation, or other personal obligations. Let’s keep the foreclosure from impacting your credit history and providing you a little cash for a new start.  Its better than walking away with nothing!

Everyone’s situation is different, but we have seen almost every scenario over the last 10 years. We have over a 95% success rate of finding a resolution.

Call or email us and we can discuss with you the various options and see what works best for you.
