Steve contacted us because he was relocating to a different state and needed to sell his Independence, KY house fast. The home needed a few repairs, and he didn’t have the time to fix it up and list it on the market with a Realtor. Two weeks later, we were at the closing table. If you are relocating to a different state, the last thing you want is to worry about how to sell your home. Check out what Steve had to say about working with We Buy NKY Houses, a Cincinnati and NKY cash home buyer.
Eric: Congrats on the sale of your home! Tell us a little bit about the process and how it went for you.
Steve: Pretty quick and easy. Eric and I had a real smooth, transparent negotiation and operation. Everything came in a timely manner as promised, and it was as seamless as I can have imagined it would be.
Eric: Awesome: Anything we could have done better? Anything that was concerning during the process?
Steve: No, not at all. I actually felt comfortable with you guys. You had good reviews and history, and that’s why I went with you, and that all turned out to be true. So, I’d highly recommend Eric and We Buy NKY Houses.
Eric: Thanks so much! And, where are you driving today?
Steve: We’re driving to Oregon.
Eric: So, just a short trip.
Steve: Yeah, a short trip (laughter).
Eric: Well, thank you so much, good luck!
Moving to a Different State – Need to Sell House Fast
If you are relocating to a different state and have a house you need to sell, there is a lot of stress that comes with the burden of figuring out what to do with a home? You may not be moving to Oregon, like Steve, but if you are moving to a different state, who has time to prep and get a home ready to sell, let alone keep it prepped for all of the showings, work through inspections, etc. There are all sorts of tasks and expenses when relocating to a different state. It can be overwhelming! So, what are your options?
Well, certainly you can go the traditional route and put the house on the market with a top Cincinnati Realtor. If you are fortunate, you will be in a seller’s market, and can sell the home fast and for top dollar. This can be a good option if you don’t need the money right away and can afford to have multiple home payments. However, this is not always the case, and if you don’t want to rent at your next location before purchasing a home, you may want to sell your home faster and be done with it. So, if you’re not going to take the time to list the home on the market and you need to sell your house asap, there is another option, which is to sell to a cash home buyer.
How Does It Work to Sell to a Cash Home Buyer
Many people may hesitate to sell their home to a cash home buyer because they aren’t familiar with the process. However, it’s fairly simple. A real estate investor will meet with you at the house and determine the level of repairs or updates needed to get the home to reach its ARV or After Repair Value. Most cash offers from investors will include the cost of repairs, some fixed costs and the profit that an investor wants to make. Yes, profit. Cash buyers can help solve problems, but they don’t do it for free.
If you sell your home fast for cash, you are going to need to take a discount. But, if you need to move out of town yesterday, then the ability to have cash in your pocket from a fast closing as well as not having any of the hassle of getting the home prepped and ready to put on the market may easily be worth it.
If you are relocating for a job or maybe to be closer to a family member, the last thing you may want is to have the details of a home sale hanging over your head. So, if you don’t need top dollar and just want to be DONE with your current home, selling to a cash buyer who is a real estate investor may make a lot of sense.
Making Your Move Simpler
The big advantage to selling your home quickly to a cash buyer is to avoid all of the stress and hassle of putting your home on the market, working with real estate agents, negotiating offers, negotiating inspections, waiting on appraisals and on and on. Selling to a cash home buyer clears up a ton of mind space and allows you to focus on your new life in your new city. There are all kinds of other things you need to focus on when moving. Here are a few more tips and resources for when you are relocating to a different state.
