This is something we’ve wanted to do for a long time, that is to provide expert tips on how to sell your home fast. It’s always been important to us to share our knowledge and to help people who want or need to sell their property. Our goal with this blog is to dive into issues related to why someone might want to sell their property, and why selling to an investor might be a great solution.
Do I Need To List With a Realtor?
In our experience most people think they need to list with a realtor to sell their house. Actually, today it’s easier than ever to hook up with an investor. Using today’s technology, your favorite search engine, and the internet, you can find several all cash buyers in just a few seconds. It’s a good solution for people who are stressed out over problems surrounding property they don’t want or can’t afford.
Having done this for a while, we consistently meet people who have one of several common reasons for wanting to sell their house fast. In future blog posts we’ll look at client profiles in more detail. But this week something weird happened and it’s why I’m starting the blog today. I met a new client who is a bit unusual. I’ll call him Daniel.
Daniel doesn’t want to sell his house fast. He wants to sell, but he doesn’t want people traipsing through his house. You see Daniel sees himself as kind of a slob (he’s not) and he has lots of unique things. He’s eclectic with a penchant for art work, antiques, Persian rugs (from Istanbul) and working in the yard.
In his job, and during his leisure time, Daniel meets lots of people. So he’s able to find the odd items and cast-offs that attract him. He works about four months a year and makes enough money to pursue his passions the other eight. It was through his job that he came upon his house, a beautiful 1928 Cape Cod, high on the bank of the Willamette River near Portland, Oregon.
Why Sell Your House?
So I asked Daniel why he wanted to sell me his house. Well, as with many other people, he’s in a bit of a financial bind. In the days of no income verification and easy to get loans, he was able to get two of them which he used to finance and improve his house. What he’s recently discovered is that one of these was an interest only loan for ten years. Now, he’s having to pay on principle and the payments adjusted significantly.
Daniel’s had his business for nearly 30 years. He understands his finances perfectly. And, while he could go out and work another month or two, he’d rather not. He says he’s lazy and would prefer to cash in now on the equity.
His house is in a neighborhood of $600k-$1.2m houses. Daniel, and his situation, are very unique for me. But I understand his thinking and I really appreciate the lifestyle he’s built for himself. I’m also glad he found me. All our customers are unique. Daniel’s just a little more unique than others.
Oh, and you can be sure I’ll work my butt off to help Daniel reach his goal.
