    If you’re thinking about selling, you’re probably weighing your options right now and maybe deciding how to sell and who you should sell to. Check out this blog post to learn the key advantages of selling to an investor over a traditional buyer in San Antonio, TX…

    When it comes to selling your San Antonio house, you have a number of options. You could work with an agent to list your house and they’ll try to find a buyer. Or you could list your house yourself and try to find a buyer. Or, you could work with a real estate investor who will buy your house from you directly… and fast. Here are the advantages of selling to an investor…

    Speed

    In order to sell to a traditional buyer, that buyer has to be found by the agent… which is a process that can take months. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait that long. When you sell to a real estate investor, they can close fast – often in as a little as a week or two (it varies, depending on the investor). Since they are buyers, and there’s no searching… you already know who they are so you can sell quickly!

    And a bonus of this: you don’t have to pay bills and taxes on that property while you’re waiting for a buyer to be found. This can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in ongoing bills.

    At Done Deal Buyers, we can often buy houses in San Antonio, TX within 7 days.

    No Repairs

    Not every house is in pristine condition. That’s okay, it happens. But when you sell to a traditional buyer, you’ll probably have to pay out-of-pocket to fix up the property and clean it before a traditional buyer will even look at your house. But most investors buy houses in as-is condition, which means you can save money and time (and hassle!) by skipping the repair and cleaning.

    And if the repairs are really extensive, you won’t have to deal with a contractor, either. Yes, the investor may ask for a small discount on the selling price since THEY are covering the repairs instead of you, but this is a small price to pay to sell quickly and without all the hassle.

    No Guessing

    This is perhaps the biggest problem of them all: When you sell to a traditional buyer, you’re guessing and hoping that they’ll pay you the asking price for the house… and if you wait several months and they negotiate a lower price, well, that’s not ideal. But when you sell to an investor, you know exactly what the investor will pay right away. You don’t have to accept their offer but it’s a great first step to help you decide how to move forward.

    There are many ways to sell your house. And although selling to an investor might not be the right choice for everyone, it might be right for you.
