While professional home buyers are not a new option for home sales, many sellers have a lack of awareness or have misperceptions about the process. Sellers are unaware that working with professional buyers like Homesmith can save time, money, and stress. Ready to learn more? Read on as we share with you the top 5 questions we receive from home sellers in Columbus.
What About Repairs?
One of the questions we typically receive from home sellers in Columbus, will I need to make repairs? No! When Homesmith looks at your property, we are aware of what repairs will be required and we are willing to take on all of the expenses and risks of undertaking the project. This means you walk away without any concerns of the laws governing disclosure in real estate and the legal risks of selling a home, for any problems you were unaware of.
Will the Closing Be Slow?
Perhaps one of the top questions we receive from home sellers in Columbus, will I have to wait long for closing? No! Homesmith typically closes within a few days! By working with Homesmith, your sale is guaranteed, unlike listing with a real estate agent or on your own. There will be no more tension as the days your listing sits on the market adds up, turning more and more buyers away, taking you out of the running against the competition.
Will I Get a Fair Offer?
A frequent question we receive from home sellers in Columbus, how do you determine your offer? Our valuation allows us to stay in business while offering you a fair price that works for you. Homesmith takes many factors into consideration when we make an offer, as you may be aware, location is one of the dominating factors in the value of real estate. We consider the age and condition of your home, including any repairs that may be necessary, the conformity of your home to surrounding properties is also of importance. Additionally, we carefully review the values of comparable homes, located near you.
What About the Title Company?
One more question we receive from home sellers in Columbus, will I have to pay the title company? While there are some fees associated with the title, in most cases they come out of the proceeds at closing. Additionally, just so you’re aware, there could also be expenses such as any taxes due or liens on the property, or judgments. Any legal or wiring fees would also be the responsibility of the seller. Typically there is no need to be concerned with coming up with any funds towards these or other possible fees before you receive your cash from the sale when you work with Homesmith.
Do You Charge Commissions or Fees?
Another question we receive from home sellers in Columbus, is there a cost? No!
Homesmith will make you a cash offer, which is the actual amount you will receive. As you may be well aware, there are a great many commissions, fees, closing costs, and other expenses involved in a traditional home sale. All of these costs and hassles involved in traditional real estate listings fall by the wayside, meaning an extremely swift closing, putting cash in your hands in 30 days or less.
