Whether you’re on the fence or seriously considering alternative methods of selling your house, it might be a good idea to consider those companies that claim “we buy houses in Suffolk County.” You’ve probably heard advertising for them on the radio or other websites, but you haven’t done much in the way of research. You might be surprised at how much easier they make the process. If you haven’t done the research, it’s high time you do so before calling a real estate agent.
While most people want the cold-hard cash that
these companies offer, you can get paid a variety of other ways. For
example, if it’s a large sum of money, you can consider scheduled
cash payments throughout the year (or longer), certified funds to
ensure that the money arrives in your account, or the company might
offer to assume ownership of your current mortgage payments to get
you out from under a payment you can’t afford.
Most home investors can pay in full with cash at
closing if that is your ideal solution.
With a real estate agent, you’re likely to be required to fix any significant problems with the house, such as foundation issues and holes in the walls. They may also want you to add a fresh coat of paint, update the flooring, and more. These are costly and time-consuming, and you probably don’t want to do all that just to let someone else have your house. Home investment companies purchase houses as-is because they flip them. They want you to leave the house alone so that they can make the upgrades and changes they desire so that it can be sold later for a profit. This is how the company makes money, and you don’t have to deal with trying to sell a house you don’t want (and possibly can’t afford).
