You want to sell your house, but want to make sure that you do it right and get the most out of your sale. So, what questions should you ask to figure out how to sell your home and who to sell it to? In this FAQ, we have several questions that you should ask yourself before selling your house. If you have any questions about this FAQ, or if you’d like to speak to a member of our All-Cash home buying team, please give us a call at 314-730-0366.

Do I Need to Repair My Home So It Will Sell?

Repairing issues in a house can be costly, and typically costs more than $1000 on average. So the question is, can you afford, or do you want to manage those repairs? You know that typical home buyers are looking for a house in pristine condition, and chances are, they won’t be interested in purchasing a home that needs lots of repairs. So the question is, do you repair your house and spend thousands of dollars so that it will be competitive in the real estate market?

It’s also important to note that spending money on repairs doesn’t mean that you’ll recoup those costs with the sale of your home. There could also be other issues out of your control, such as the neighborhood quality, poor choice of nearby entrainment, bad neighbors, etc. So repairing your home is a gamble. What’s our solution? Our All Cash Home Buyers don’t require you to make any repairs or changes to the property at all before selling. We’ll purchase your property as-is, in cash. This means that you’ll get the full fair-market value of your property without having to put any more effort into the property than you already have.

Do you have to sell your property now? Is timing an Issue?

What is your timeline. Does that house have to be sold now, as in immediately, or do you have time? If you have time, is it months or years? Why is time important? The simple answer is that owning a house costs money, even if you aren’t living in it. Taxes, fees, utilities can all add up over the course of months and are multiplied when you look at the cost to sustain a house over years. Selling your house months or years later means you can lose thousands of dollars in maintenance fees that you wouldn’t have to if you sold your house in the immediate future. If you do need to sell your house now, our team provides all-cash, fast closing options that may be perfect for your current situation. If this sounds like an offer you would like to take advantage of, call our team now at 314-730-0366.

What is your House worth in its current AS-IS state?

What is the current value of your property? What shape is it in, and what could you ask, price-wise, if you were to try to sell it right now? This is the all-important question that you have to ask before any attempt at selling the property. To determine this, you have to take all of the benefits of the house and all of its negatives into account. Is it updated? Does it need updates? What are the issues it is currently facing? Does it have plumbing problems? Foundational issues? Is it in a high-demand neighborhood? A transitional neighborhood? These are questions that are critical to deciding the value of your property.

But what if, after answering those questions, you find that the value of your house isn’t as high as you thought, and maybe your house needs lots of repairs or updates to make it viable. Should you spend the money to bring it up to market quality? Will you recoup that money? With today’s current real estate market, there is no guarantee that you will make any of your money back updating the house. So what do we offer in this situation? Our cash home buying company in St. Louis will purchase your house in its current condition, for cash. This means you don’t have to make any repairs or updates. This saves you time and money. If this sounds like a situation you would like to take advantage of, call our team now at 314-730-0366.
