Selling Fast: Who Are The Cash House Buyers in Portland Oregon?
Selling your home in today’s real estate market, isn’t always the easiest thing to do.
If you need to sell fast due to divorce, job loss, pressures of relocation, or any other of life’s tribulations, this process can be especially formidable. Any of these issues are stressful by themselves…but having to sell the house too!
Luckily, there are ways for you as a local Portland house seller to win! Selling to a cash house buyer can get you the cash you need fast…taking your property off your hands with a minimum of stress so you can move on with your life.
Using a cash buyer will also relieve any pressure for making repairs, and cleaning up or ‘spiffing up that curb appeal.’ You can sell your Portland Oregon home as-is, no hassle. Selling your house to the perfect cash buyer can be a quick and easy process.
First ask yourself, “Who are the cash house buyers in Portland Oregon?”
Cash buyers are usually real estate investors (some locally based, like us here at AppleTree Group LLC)… and some based out of town. There are also many national buyers. The goal of any house buyer should be to create a win-win situation to help both the homeowner and buyer.
Quick Tips to Remember When Looking For A Reputable Local Portland Cash House Buyer
- Price it right
- Be honest
- Be flexible
Price it Right
When selling to a cash house buyer in Portland, keep in mind that they’re buying with cash instead of using bank financing. For this reason they can close very quickly. We can buy your house in as little as 10 days from today if you want to sell that quickly. You don’t have to wait 30 days to 6 months to sell your house using the traditional “listing agent” route. And you won’t have to worry about a buyer’s financing falling through (or any of a number of other issues).
The cash buyer will take care of all necessary repairs, clean up, spruce up…whatever is required to resell your house at full retail price. This means that a professional house buyer won’t be able to pay as much as a retail buyer (that is someone planning to live in the house) would.
This also means that you’re getting a quick / hassle free sale for the cash you need. You’re able to move on, to focus on the real issues you face. Check out this article on pricing your home to sell.
Don’t go into this process with expectations of getting the same price you’d get with a listing agent. Listing your house requires: 1) getting an agent, 2) negotiating a sales price, 3) doing what they recommend to prepare for the sale, 4) then hoping the right buyer shows up, 5) renegotiating the price through the realtor based on what the buyer is willing to pay, 6) that the inspection goes OK, 7) that the appraisal comes out OK, and 8) that their financing comes through. This is why the traditional process takes months and months and has plenty of opportunities to get screwed up.
Also, consider in your pricing the fact that a local cash home buyer like AppleTree Group LLC doesn’t charge any fees or commissions. There’s a significant saving right there!
Always tell the truth when giving descriptions of repairs and values. An experienced cash buyer will do their homework, so tarnishing a relationship and potentially hindering a sale in the name of saving a few bucks, is not worth it. Just be honest with your buyer and they will work with you.
Cash house buyers in Portland can often come up with creative solutions to your problems. Be flexible, and willing to share. Listen to the offer and make the best of your situation.
Often, after talking to many local Portland area house sellers, we find there are other options that make more sense than selling us their house. As a local buyer we want to come see your property, get to know you and understand your situation. We can’t give you the best advice if we don’t understand your problem.
Be flexible and open minded. We’ll let you know what we think are your best options for your specific situation. If it means us buying your house in a win-win transaction… great! If it means you selling your house another way (or even finding a way to stay in your house)…even better!
All we care about is that you’re taken care of in the process. That’s how we win! We honestly believe in doing the right thing. Because in the long run it serves us and our community better.
Which brings us to one last point. We truly believe that a local buyer, rather than an out-of-area buyer, is in your best interest. We are part of this community and have a vested interest in your satisfaction and well being. And, as members of this community, we should understand your situation in greater detail than someone from out of state.
The bottom line is, regardless of how daunting the task of selling your home may appear, sometimes all it takes is finding the best cash house buyers in Portland Oregon.
