Companies that claim “we buy houses in Alabama” aren’t well-known. You’ve probably seen signage and may wonder about it briefly, but you probably don’t look into it, especially if you’re not ready to sell. However, there comes a time when you are ready to sell your home and may think about these companies and wonder if they’re worth your consideration. While they aren’t for everyone, they do have benefits that a traditional realtor doesn’t.
For most homeowners, the most challenging part of
selling is the waiting game. A realtor can take six months or longer
to get the house ready, have showings, and list it on websites. Then,
they have to wait for an interested party and ensure that the closing
procedure goes smoothly. When you choose a cash-for-home company,
things are different. They assess the house (usually) and make you an
offer. If you like the offer, you accept, sign all the paperwork, and
get your cash within a month or so.
Reasons Don’t Matter
Most traditional buyers want to make sure that
nothing is seriously wrong with the house before they buy. They
require an inspection and demand that you fix any significant
problems. Cash-for-home companies don’t care what is wrong with the
home or property. Their goal is to offer a fair price (but maybe not
the market value price), fix it up, and sell it for a profit later.
You get cash in your hand that you may desperately need, and they get
an inexpensive house that they can fix up at their leisure. It’s a
win-win for most people, though it also depends on your particular
situation. If you’re going through a divorce, want to avoid
foreclosure or bankruptcy, or just need to relocate quickly, these
companies are highly beneficial.
