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

Need to Sell My Home Fast – What Options Are There?

Published on November 28, 2017 | by homes@admin | in Blog

Even in a seller’s market, it is difficult to sell a home quickly. Folsom is by far the most popular city to buy a home in Sacramento County, and it still takes between 1 to 3 months on average for a highly popular home to sell. Areas like Antelope in Placer County still take 2 to 6 months, and the further you get in NorCal (for example, Placerville) the more you may find yourself in the 6 months to a year range.

For some sellers, this wait is not that important. But for those that want to sell their home fast, it can pose a tremendous challenge – especially if there are issues with the home that need to be addressed.

How to Sell My Home Fast

If you’re looking to sell your home fast, there are several options, but not all of them are ideal for each property owner. Here are a few strategies you can try:

  • Drastically Decrease the Cost – Give a good deal, and you’ll always find buyers. If you market your home for way under its value, someone is going to be willing to pick it up. If you look for only pre-qualified buyers, you may be able to find someone that can close in 30 to 60 days.
  • Contact All Real Estate Agents Out There – If you’ve put your home on a discount, you can also try contacting as many real estate agents as possible and seeing if any of them know someone that may be interested. This still requires a discount on the cost, as there has to be an advantage to buying your home that others do not have, but if you can take that loss you should be able to sell your home in 30 to 45 days.
  • Sell to a Cash Home Buyer – The ideal way to sell a home fast is to contact a cash home buyer, like Homestead Group. We buy homes with cash and close in as little as 7 days.

It should be noted that with the first two options, you still have to make sure your home is perfect. Buyers are unlikely to purchase a home if there are repairs that need to be made, even if it is at a discount. But cash home buyers, like Homestead Group, will buy the home as-is with no repairs needed.

Since it can take months to make repairs (as well as a large financial investment), selling to Homestead Group is a great way to make sure that you can sell your home as fast as possible, all without paying anything out of pocket.
