What you may not know, is that there are multiple options to sell a Redlands mobile home. While many people immediately seek the help of a realtor, there are other, more cost-effective ways to sell your mobile home. For example, you could choose to carry the financing yourself or sell the property directly, without the help of a licensed salesperson, which is what we will cover in our latest post!
As we said above, there are many ways to sell. For some properties, a listing makes the most sense, whereas, for other, a direct sale is the optimal choice. Which will it be for you! Don’t sign any contracts or agree to a sale until you learn about what a direct sale can mean for your situation!
The Commission Factor
When you choose a direct sale to a company such as HRG Home Buyers, you won’t have to stress about paying out 6% of the sale price in commissions. This is thousands of dollars you will automatically save by choosing a direct sale. In addition, there aren’t any agent fees, advertising costs, listing fees or photographers to pay. When you work with a direct buyer, the property is typically sold as-is, so you can keep the funds for advertising in your pocket.
No Clean-Up Or Repairs
Listing your Redlands mobile home will require you to make repairs to the home to get it prepared for the MLS. Even small damages can severely lower your potential buyer’s perceived value of the home. Making repairs and touch-ups to the house can stack up quickly as far as finances are concerned. You will also have to account for the cost to clean up, keep it clean, store personal items and clutter as well as purchase items if you need to do some staging. While these costs can be worth it in the long run, they should be well considered before listing your property.
When you work with a company like us to sell your house directly, the closing date will be up to you. We are able to purchase properties almost immediately, so you won’t have to spend valuable time waiting around for a buyer to come along. On the flip side, we will not rush you into a closing. We know that selling and moving can be a stressful time, hence why we aim to keep the process as easy as possible. If you should choose to accept an offer from HRG Home Buyers, you will then decide on the date that best suits you. You won’t have to worry about the sale falling through as with a traditional sale using conventional financing. A direct buyer will have the funds available to pay you immediately!
A Fast Sale Will Save You Money
Point blank, the longer you own the house, the more it is costing you. Investors know this, that is why the goal is always to flip a house FAST! By selling your property to a direct buyer right away, you are potentially saving yourself months of wasted time and resources. You are likely paying more for your mobile home than you even realize. There are monthly utilities to consider, homeowners insurance, property taxes that you are responsible for up until the day of closing as well as routine maintenance costs. If you are paying for things such as pool service, pest control or landscaping, those costs will promptly be over and done with.
A Direct Sale Offers Guarantees, While A Listing Does Not
There is a lot of unpredictability when it comes to buying and selling properties. Deals fall through every day. Banks often take longer than expected to fund a loan. When you list, you are essentially living in limbo until the closing papers have been signed. An agent can list your mobile home for any price you want, even if it has been inflated in order to get you to sign a listing contract. There is NO guarantee that you will get the price you ask for when you list your Redlands mobile home! With a direct sale, you will know both the exact date and amount you will walk away with. This will allow you to plan ahead without having to deal with the uncertainty!
