Lately the financing world has been really screwy. Lenders change program requirements at the last minute – and for normal purchasers, that could delay your sale.
Keep in mind that anyone can write a cash offer, even if they’re borrowing money to purchase the property. So when you’re selling a house through a real estate agent to an end buyer… be prepared that if the buyers financing falls through… you’ll have to start the sale process all over again… adding more months to the process, more holding costs you have to pay for, and more.
To avoid having the buyer pull out at the last second because of financing… one option is to sell your house to a local investment firm like us.
Often, qualified investors have access to multiple lines of credit with public and private lenders that is secured by other assets.
That means we can close quickly and we don’t have to wait for a bank loan to come through. You get your sale done and cash in hand quickly.
You’ll have to do some due diligence to make sure you’re dealing with a qualified local investor. Qualified investors will have no problem providing you access to bankers and references who can verify the investor’s ability to close on the loan.
If you’ve taken a cash offer with an earnest money deposit, you might be entitled to keep the deposit if the buyer can’t close on the purchase.
