The Fastest Way To Sell Your Home Without An Agent

On average, the typical homes stay on the market for 24 days, and sales are finalized within 46 days, according to the National Association of Realtors. The housing market in 2021 is abnormal, particularly in Utah, where homes in hot areas are selling in just over a week.

The housing market has already slowed some since the peak in the spring of 2021. The housing market will likely continue to return to typical averages over the next year or so.  However, you shouldn’t rely on the housing market to guarantee a quick move when you need one, even if the market remains unchanged.

If your home needs a lot of work, it’s not likely to sell quickly or at all.  You could be stuck with a property that requires expensive repairs. If you’re in a hurry to leave the property behind, working with a cash offer is the fastest way to offload your home or investment property.

What is a cash offer?

 A cash offer just means that you sell your home to a buyer that doesn’t require any outside funding for the purchase. The cash buyer could be an individual, an investment group, or a company like Brick.

The funds are typically paid via cash, check, money order, or electronic deposit. Fortunately (or maybe, unfortunately, if you prefer a bit of drama), you won’t be exchanging your house key for a suitcase full of cash.

Benefits of working with a cash offer

There are several significant benefits of working with a cash buyer for sellers instead of someone who needs a loan to purchase your property.

Less risk of the home sale falling through

When someone makes a cash offer on your home, that means they are ready to purchase your home. Today. Since they don’t have to worry about approval from a third party, there’s far less risk that the sale will fall through before closing.

The sale will move forward faster

Since the buyer isn’t using a lender, multiple steps can be skipped. The underwriting process on a mortgage loan can take from a few weeks to more than a month. Cash buyers don’t have to worry about a lender approving the appraisal on the home or having a lender review their credit score.

You have more options for negotiation

When you work with a buyer willing to pay cash, you have a little more room to negotiate terms. Buyers who purchase with money don’t need a lender to approve a loan for more the home value, nor are they required to ask for an inspection. You may be able to sell your home more quickly if you sell to a buyer who doesn’t need or want an inspection on the house.

No open houses or realtors

Inviting perfect strangers into your home is intimidating for many sellers. The idea of buyers inspecting every nook and cranny of a property where your family still resides can be a bit nerve-wracking. In addition, maintaining the property in show-ready condition is a lot of work, especially when you’re trying to balance work, moving, and family matters. With a cash buyer, you may not even need to list your home on the MLS.

It’s just less stressful

One of the biggest reasons sellers like working with cash buyers is because it’s less stressful. If you need or want to get out of your home or investment properties quickly, a cash offer will allow you to do that without going through multiple middlemen. Adding up all the benefits above makes for a much smoother and less frustrating sales experience.
