Selling A House As Is By Owner
Selling a house as is by owner can certainly have its challenges.
FSBO WEBSITES ABOUND!
You can list it online, (and don’t forget the pictures!), but then you will have the hassle of presenting your house in its best light every time someone wants to come and view it. That means cleaning, staging, repairing things and more. Prospective homebuyers don’t want to have to fix things before they move in! They usually are looking for a completely remodeled home. If the carpet is worn or dirty, paint is scuffed, fixtures are dated or damaged and appliances are older they really are not inclined to make you a good offer if they make you one at all.
Be prepared for the Real Estate Agents who will call and ask you if you’d be willing to pay their commission if they bring you a buyer. Makes you wonder why the buyer doesn’t pay the agent, they are the ones who ‘hired’ them and are using their services!
Once you list it for sale by owner online, people will probably call and email you asking you questions about your house. But, are they serious buyers, or tire-kickers just taking up your precious time? And once you tell them you are selling the house “as is” many of them will be scared away.
What if the potential buyers cannot get a loan?
The other issue with selling a house as is by owner is that if it has foundation or roof issues, or perhaps you pulled out the flooring and what is left is the concrete floors, most lenders will not lend on a house with these issues. Now how are the buyers that are calling you even going to get a loan for your house?

So, You Want Top Dollar for Your House?
Selling your house as is means you obviously won’t get as much for your house as you would if you did all the repairs, plus added all the new amenities home shoppers are looking for like granite counters, new appliances, new lighting, new faucets, new hardwood flooring, designer color paint jobs and more! You also need to factor in your holding costs incurred while waiting for it to sell. Those include your monthly mortgage payment, utilities, taxes and insurance and yard (and/or pool) maintenance too. Oh, one more thing, If you don’t sell during the peak season, this could also lower the price you can get for your house.
What if I Sell it to an Investor?
As you know, selling to an investor will also mean you will be selling at a discount as well. But realize, while our offer won’t reflect the value of your house if it were fixed up and put up for sale, it does save you the expense of doing all the remodel work, plus, the headaches associated with selling your house as is on a “For Sale By Owner” website. In fact, if you’re selling your house as is, and want to go through a Real Estate Agent, rest assured, he or she will present it to her investor friends, and still make her commission on top.
You may be surprised just how close the cash offer we give you comes to the amount that you walk away with after negotiating with a buyer who won’t pay full price because of the condition of the house, especially if an agent becomes involved. This is especially true once you factor in all of your expenses related to owning your house. Your bottom line might be about the same… well, minus the time you lose waiting for the right buyer to come along!
If selling your house quickly without all the complications sounds good, do yourself a favor and give us a call at (682)-350-8444 (or fill out the form above) and see what we can do for you. We hope you’ll be glad you did!
