There are a lot of things to consider when placing your home for sale. How long will your home be on the market? What shape is my home in, and how much will needed repairs cost? Will the buyer find something wrong with the house after closing and potentially sue? Can I afford the commission if I deal with a Realtor?

Professional home buyers in Central Pa will usually purchase homes as-is. As a seller, this means you do not have to worry about repairs before closing. There are some companies that do not require inspections which makes it a truly as-is transaction.
Professional home buyers in Harrisburg Pa typically close faster than traditional home buyers, and usually in pay in cash. Traditional home purchases usually require qualifications from banks, mortgage underwriting time, property inspection time and the buyer may not end up qualifying in the end.
There are also normally no commissions paid to a buyer’s or seller’s agent which means thousands of dollars in savings. The usual commission is 3% per side, so if you sell your home for $200,000, you would have to pay $12,000 in commissions! Professional home buyers may not charge transaction fees.
Professional home buyers are in it for the investment. They are not expecting to move into the home on the day of closing. Most investor home buyers will allow a move-out timeframe after closing to allow you to relocate at your own pace. This is extremely helpful, especially with such quick closing timeframes. Also, you do not even have to clean the home when you leave. You can simply pack your personal items and furniture you want to keep and leave the rest.
When you decide to use a professional home buyer in Dauphin and Cumberland counties, you will not have to worry about going through a roller coaster of emotions. There are no frustrating, middle-of-dinner phone calls asking if you are available to show your home. You don’t have to worry about leaving your home spotless every day before heading to work, just in case there is a showing while you’re gone. You don’t have to worry about possibly running into a buyer’s agent or their clients asking you questions that you really shouldn’t answer anyway.
Selling to a professional home buyer is extremely straight forward. They lay out every step of the process and have shortened, very clear contracts that are simple as-is purchase agreements. You will also have lessened exposure to legal risks. You won’t have to worry about the buyer finding something you didn’t know you didn’t disclose or something they don’t like about the home or the neighborhood. Under most traditional real estate contracts, there is a potential for the buyer to sue you if they feel they didn’t get all of the information, or if they feel the facts were misconstrued. Professional home buyers already know the state of the property, and they are willing to take on that risk.
