Sell Fast Now vs. Planned Future Sale

John Marion - Real Estate, Canton, GA

What are the pros and cons of selling your house to an investor for fast cash with quick sale compared to planning the sale in the future?

Fast House Sale Benefits

With a fast sale, you can get cash now and be finished with the property. It’s that simple.

Investors can close on your property in 30 days or less, many times it can be 10 days or less! It’s virtually and instant purchase of your home or land.

The advantage to a fast sale is that you get cash quickly and you end the ownership of your property. If the property has been a problem for you, the problem is gone with a quick sale.

Planned Future Sale Benefits

In contrast, a long-term, planned sale of your property to an investor can give you peace of mind that the house is sold and that the transaction will take place at a longer-term future date. This may be a better option for you.

A planned sale at a future date means that the seller can continue to use the property. As a seller, you cant take any time needed to get everything in order to move out or take care of other things while waiting for the sale date.

The key to the long term, planned sale, is to get a commitment from the investor buyer in the form of a signed purchase contract. The contract will state the agreed upon price and terms of the offer, including the date in the future that the transaction will be completed.

Why Would an Investor Buy Your House?

You want to sell your house to an investor, but why would an investor buy your house?

We get a lot of calls from people who think an investor might want to buy their house because it needs a few cosmetic repairs that they don’t feel like making.

Sometimes they hear from a real estate agent that their house will need to be 100% perfect in order for the agent to sell the home.

This leads them to believe they can sell to an investor “as-is” with the discount being equal to the cost of the minor repairs.

But it doesn’t work that way.

Learn why an investor would buy your house.

Alpha Dog Investments buys houses in Cherokee County, GA area and throughout the North Metro Atlanta region.

Why Buy Ugly Houses?

Photo of distressed, unattractive house.

Maybe you have seen the advertisements for a company that buys ugly houses.

Do you ever ask why a real estate company would buy ugly houses?

Alpha Dog Investments buys houses in any condition, so we don’t call the houses we buy ugly. Every house has some value to us.

The types of houses we buy that may be considered ugly are categorized in different ways by our company.

Your house is valuable to us! We solve real estate problems and our company is interested in each of these houses.

The Fixer Upper House

This type of house may actually look nice cosmetically, but when you look closer, it needs some repairs before it is ready to be marketed to the typical buyer for full retail price. The fixer upper may need a lot of small items repaired. Maybe a handyman tried making some improvements here and there, but didn’t do a good job.

The Outdated House

The outdated house may be properly maintained, very clean, and looks great. The house may even have a new roof, new furnace, new hot water heater and new carpet.

But it has outdated features, such as old style kitchen cabinets, undesirable bathroom tile colors, old lighting fixtures, cheap looking contractor grade door knobs, etc. In order for this house to fetch the highest retail price on the open market to the typical buyer, it must be renovated with updated features.

Distressed House in Disrepair

This is a house with neglected maintenance.

It usually has not be maintained for years and may have structural problems, missing pipes, faulty electric lines, holes in walls, broken or boarded up windows, and other issues such as fire, flooding, or foundation damage.

Some may even believe this type of house should be demolished but our company can normally salvage this type of house and bring it back to life with a full renovation.

The Financially Distressed House

This house may be in great condition but the owners are distressed financially. This house may soon suffer from lack of maintenance.

The owners may not be able to keep up with the mortgage payments. It’s possible that the house will go into foreclosure unless the owners can avoid it with a lender approved short sale.

Our company helps financially distressed homeowners, with nice homes or homes in disrepair.

Investment Real Estate

Alpha Dog Investments buys all of the types of houses listed above. We are a real estate investment company and every house has some value to us.
