If you plan on selling your house the traditional way, you’ll have to fix everything that’s broken, ripped, or leaking. You have to upgrade the outdated systems and dress the house up if you want buyers to even spare your property a glance.
You have to put the house up on the market, wait an uncertain length of time for interested buyers to come along and tour them, without the assurance of a done deal. Then, if you happen to find a sure buyer, you have to coordinate with realtors, complete the paperwork, and face hefty fees to complete the transaction.
Not many people are willing to put this much effort into selling their house. Some sellers don’t have the luxury of time and money for the conventional selling process.
As such, property buying companies, such as Straightforward House Solutions, make the process fast and frictionless. We buy homes in Tucson, without the hassle, the long wait, the repair fees, or realtor commissions. Selling becomes worry-free.
Here are three things you don’t have to worry about when you work with a homebuying company in Tucson, AZ.
No Long Waiting Period
If you sell your Tucson house the conventional way, it will take weeks before a buyer decides on the house and closes the deal. The Tucson Association of Realtors reports that in November 2019, single-family homes stayed on the market for an average of 35 days, while townhouses and condos stayed for around 26 days.
If you don’t have weeks to spare, turning to a property buying company can dramatically speed up the process. You don’t have to wait long to get cash for your home.
Straightforward Home Solutions, for instance, holds a record of turning in a cash payment within 7 days. We inspect your house, evaluate the property, and close the deal all within a week. In fact, we can provide a cash offer within 24 hours!
No Need for Renovation or Repairs
A home on the market has to be in tip-top shape. If it isn’t, buyers will drift off to the next listing. Repairs and renovations for a fixer upper can cost a fortune, however.
A 2018 article published by The New York Times estimates that, across the country, a repair bill amounts to about $1000. And that’s for a single project. Multiply that by the number of things you have to fix in your house — the peeling paint, the jamming garage door, the clogged drains — and you face paying a princely sum.
In some cases, everything in the house works fine, but the look and feel of the home are outdated. And it will be hard to find buyers who prize vintage aesthetics. So, you look into house upgrades, which can set you back thousands of dollars. Home Advisor reports that in 2018, Americans spent an average of $7,560 on home improvement projects.
When you work with property buying companies, you don’t have to shell out a single nickel. Straightforward Home Solutions buys properties in as-is condition, meaning, you don’t have to worry about the faulty HVAC system or leaking gutter.
We will buy your house, no matter how old-fashioned, unattractive, or damaged it is.
No Fees or Closing Expenses
The spending doesn’t stop at repairs and renovations; at the tail-end of the sale, you have to spend on commissions and closing costs.
The commissions go to your real estate agent in return for helping you sell your home. It is typically 6% of the final sale price of the house. You also shoulder the closing costs, which include the document filing, title search fees, property taxes, and transfer taxes, among others. Closing costs amount to about 2% of the final sale price.
When you work with a property buying company, you don’t have to deal with these costs. You don’t have to work with an agent, so there are no commissions involved. Plus, the company shoulders the closing costs. You get to keep 100% of the cash offered to you for your property.
If you don’t have the time to sell your home or if you don’t want to spend too much on repairs, upgrades, or fees, a homebuying company like Straightforward Home Solutions is your best choice.
