Buying Homes CASH in Sacramento, Placer, and El Dorado Counties

Cash for Homes Near Me | Why a Local Home Buyer is Better

Published on November 21, 2017 | by homes@admin | in Blog

Homes are highly popular real estate assets. Everyone wants to buy your home, which is why homes are worth so much in the market. Throughout areas like Sacramento, Folsom, Rescue, Citrus Heights, Roseville, Lincoln, and more, your home is always highly desirable to SOMEONE, no matter what it looks like or how much love it needs.

With that in mind, however, not all homes – and not all seller situations – are created equal. There are times when the traditional real estate market in these areas is simply not right now you:

  • You have a home that is in need of serious repairs.
  • You have to sell the home fast due to pre-foreclosure, moving, lost job, etc.
  • You have an ugly home that isn’t selling for its value.
  • You have a home that is for rent by a bad tenant.
  • You have lots of expenses with moving and cleaning you can’t afford.

Whatever your reason may be – from inheritance to infestation – there are times when you may find that the traditional real estate process simply isn’t the right choice. That’s why people use cash for home buyers.

Lower Offer – Greater Value

Cash for home buyers, like Homestead Group, offer to buy your home for cash right away. You have someone inspect your home, they give you an offer, you decide if you want to take it, and if you do you close within 7 days.

The caveat is that the offer is slightly less than you would make on the open market. That’s why it’s not always the right choice for someone in no rush to sell their home that is looking to make the most of their equity. However, there are still many advantages to using a cash for home buyer in the Northern California area:

  • The home is sold fast.
  • No repairs are needed – all homes are sold as is.
  • There is no stress to the real estate process.

It should also be noted that selling a home the old fashioned way still has many costs. Not only is there the cost of any needed repairs, but there are also cleaning costs, closing costs, and significant real estate agent fees.

Still, the cash for home offers may be less than you receive on the open market, but with the advantages of a fast sale and no expenses.

Why a Local Cash For Homes Near Me is Better

So let’s say you have chosen to use a cash for home buyer. You have to keep in mind that many of these investors are offshoots of national companies. They don’t know the real estate market, nor do they know the Sacramento, Placer, and El Dorado County areas.

What many of them do is lowball the offer by as much as possible, that way they have less to lose if their assessment of your home’s value is wrong. Very few have local home inspection experience, so they simply guess what your home is worth and offer as little as possible.

Here at Homestead Group, we take a very different approach. We began as home inspectors right here in the Greater Sacramento area, along with Placer and El Dorado County. We genuinely know this real estate market. This allows us to offer fair deals given the condition and type of home – something that none of these national companies can offer.

That’s why we encourage you to send us your address and see for yourself what we can do. You never have to take our offer and we supply no pressure. But we also know that we’re here to make sure that you get the deal you need to unload the property. If you’re interested in learning more, make sure you contact us today.
