Is it better to sell my house to an investor, or list it with a Realtor?
If you're thinking of selling your home, you may see a lot of advertisements from investors offering a quick, easy, cash sale of your home, without showings or real estate agents. It can be enticing, especially if you are facing foreclosure, or your home needs work, or perhaps you just ended up with an unexpected probate home you want to sell fast. But what's really the best way? That depends! Read the pros and cons of working with an investor (or ibuyer like Opendoor) versus listing your home on the open market with a Realtor.
SELLING YOUR HOUSE DIRECTLY TO AN INVESTOR:
SELLING YOUR HOUSE WITH A REAL ESTATE AGENT:
If you need to sell very fast, cannot bear to list your property on the open market, and are willing to take a very large discount, an investor may be a good choice. If you want to get top dollar for your home, and have a professional handle all the details for you, a local experienced real estate agent is always the better option.
I inherited my father's head and was completely in over my head. Minna was amazing in getting things straightened out with the mortgage company (which had been giving me issues for years) and was so responsive to my emails. I had a lot of questions, as this was my first time going through the selling process, and she was able to answer them all quickly. The selling process was so much easier than I expected it to be, thanks to Minna and her team!
