Selling a home traditionally is a complex and lengthy process. It is pretty rare that sellers are able to navigate through theand seamlessly, and that’s even true when you have an experienced real estate agent guiding you along the way. You will almost always run into some sort of obstacle that will throw off your timeline, or hit a snag that requires regrouping or reassessment. You’ll even have to anticipate unforeseen costs along the way to get your home up to par with the current market.
Traditional Home Selling vs. Cash Buys
When you list your home with an agent to sell, you will almost certainly have to pay out of pocket on the front end—cash to clean, decorate, and stage your home for prospective buyers. This comes highly recommended by a lot of agents and can cost the seller hundreds to even thousands of dollars to get their property up to par. The justification is that you’ll get more money back out of the house in the sale. If the house is vacant, these visual upgrades can include interior elements like furniture, housewares, and home decor rentals to appeal to the buyers’ senses
If the house is currently occupied, you’ll be advised to keep the home showcase-ready for what could potentially be a revolving door of house tours. If you are in a residential area, a lot of potential buyers might be families with regular 9-5 working hours and their house hunting might be taking place in the evenings and on weekends. The inconvenience of having to leave the premises on an ongoing basis for showings—with no promise of an offer—can become an issue all its own. If you, as the seller, are residing in the house and have children or pets, the inconvenience can quickly be compounded. Agents will commonly advise sellers to improve the house’s curb appeal, as well. This can be even more cash out of your pocket to have landscaping performed and the lawn regularly maintained. All of these things would be considered preparatory and need to happen even before you get the first prospect in the door.
Another couple of steps in the traditional home selling process—steps that can hurt your timetable if you need to sell fast—are negotiations and financing contingencies. These are the two things that will put up speed bumps and roadblocks faster than anything else. Now you’ve added another layer of red tape to the selling process, which is the buyer’s lender. This is typically a broker, a bank, or another financial institution. It can take weeks for mortgage applications to be approved, and that’s given the buyer acts quickly in supplying all the required documentation needed for underwriting. Once you’ve accepted an offer on your house and signed the necessary paperwork, you are legally under contract with the buyer. This means the house is technically off the market and can’t continue to be shown to interested parties.
If the buyer’s financing ends up falling through and they can’t secure the loan for the purchase, you are back at square one with weeks of wasted time under your belt.
Don’t forget about the home inspection, too. That’s another layer of complexity that hinges on your timetable and your wallet. In a traditional sale, the buyer will hire a home inspection company to come in and comb over the house, noting things that aren’t up to the most current building codes. They will be looking for everything from structural issues to the integrity of the roof, to plumbing and electrical systems, to the presence of termites and other pests. The home inspector’s report is often the platform for further negotiations, where the buyer will ask the seller to make the requested repairs—and hence further delays and additional costs to you.
If we picture a scenario where the financing does come through, an inspection turned up minor to no repairs, and you’ve made it to closing, you will now be paying out of pocket once again on the back end to cover closing costs, realtor fees, and agent commissions. Overall, traditional home selling can be costly, tedious, and time-consuming. Add to that the many different people involved in the process and the various channels that have to be navigated to bring everything to fruition. It’s not simple, but it’s not your only option, either.

We Are Positioned to Help
Setbacks or delays and added costs of selling your home can cause any seller a headache. What if you are in a tight financial spot and you need to sell quickly—and you need cash now? People from all walks of life can find themselves in sudden financial hardships or crises at any moment. As the preeminent cash home buyers operating out of Indiana and Illinois, we are in a unique position to help you out of a financial situation that might feel dire and hopeless. We are here to tell you that it’s not; you have options.
As a real estate investing company, we see three common circumstances that people find themselves in—for which quick cash offers on their homes can be very beneficial. If you fall into one of these categories, consider partnering with us to close that chapter fast. If you want to sell your house for cash, we are the trusted and reputable cash home buyer that can help.
A pay cut, reduction in hours, or loss of wages entirely can set you in motion for a downward spiral toward foreclosure. If this is where you are heading, time is of the essence to sell. Other common situations we see that lead to financial hardship are a serious medical diagnosis, uninsured injuries that affect a person’s ability to work, and sudden relocation due to a family crisis. These are all life situations for which a quick sell for cash could help you—and slow the snowball effect in your life.
Oftentimes, we help people who have inherited property from a loved one who has passed away. It’s not uncommon for these houses to have been occupied by an elderly person who may have not been capable of maintaining it properly, or left issues unrepaired due to fixed income situations. A lot of times the beneficiary of the house may want to unload the property—for various reasons. Whether they can’t afford to maintain a second home or make repairs on it, or don’t live locally and are unable to manage it as a rental, a cash offer is usually a pretty attractive option in this situation.
Whether your divorce is amicable or ugly, both parties are usually motivated to move on and start the next chapter of their lives. Division of property and marginal assets can be a complicated and lengthy process, which adds another layer of stress to an already stressful situation by nature. Many divorce attorneys agree that the best and cleanest option in divorce mitigation is to sell the house, pay off the loan, and split the profit 50/50 between the two parties. If you want to sell a house fast so you can wrap up your divorce, a cash offer is the most efficient solution.
