Price and Time are Trade-Offs, What’s More Important To You?
As you might guess, it’s not easy to get the full market value for your home if you’re looking to selling fast for all cash. To get the full market value of your home, you may have to wait 3-6+ months and, more times than not, you’ll need a real estate agent out there marketing your house to find you the best buyer. Real estate agents charge a commission (usually between 3-6% of the sale price), so if it takes you six months to sell and you have to pay a 6% commission, is that worth the wait?
Most often, local Los Angeles house buyers like John Medina Buys Houses, we’ll evaluate your house and determine what it’s worth if it’s fully fixed up, then determine how much we’ll have to invest in repairing and renovating the property, how long it will take us to repair and, of course, we have to turn a small profit for our risk in buying the house, renovating, and selling it. All that said, we usually tend to make offers that are below the “full retail market” value.
But we can close quickly (in as little as 7 days if you need us to), so selling your house fast with zero hassle is more times than not MORE important than getting every penny out of the sale!
