Not to sound negative, but if you have considered selling your house then you know it requires quite a fair amount of time and effort. This does not necessarily need to be the case, as there are other alternative solutions to selling your property. This idea of sticking to the status quo only limits your options, and this article is designed particularly to give you one thing-options!
Generally speaking, listing your property on the Multiple Listing Service(MLS) is the best way to ensure that it gets as much exposure as possible. However, you should consider that this may not apply to your particular case or the property in question. So rather than leaving your property idle on the MLS for so long, here are other possible outlets for selling your house:
Hire an Agent
Working with real estate agents is in many ways synonymous with listing your property on the MLS. Most (if not all) agents have an impressive plethora of connections that may lead to your property being sold quickly. But as earlier mentioned, each property has its unique selling point and hiring an agent may not work for each case. They will obviously require maintenance and repairs and other costs which may not suit a seller who is hoping to move in a matter of days. This, therefore, eliminates this option, but still leaves many others open.
Sell House to Investors
Recently selling houses to investors for close to full value has been more and more common. This option has the peculiar advantage of receiving a price that reflects the monetary value of your property as best as possible. If you are looking to explore this option, then ensure you select only the best investors. Give us a call today if you would like to receive a Free Top Dollar Offer for your house: (661) 493-8530
Consider For Sale By Owner (FSBO)
The point made earlier regarding time, effort and money required to sell property hold particularly true in this case. For first time sellers, the process may be extra time consuming and costly, and some people even argue that the costs incurred during the process far outweigh the potential financial rewards of not hiring a real estate agent. However, for more experienced sellers, this option usually proves more lucrative.
Become a Landlord
If you live in California, then you may have come across a cunny tenant at least a few times. People generally do not put in as much effort to maintain and take care of the rented property as they would for their personal property. This usually makes being a landlord a very difficult (and costly) option. However, with the possibility of hiring property management agencies, you can conveniently avoid the rumble in the jungle while earning your monthly payments.
Consider Rent to Own
Also known as rental-purchase, these options suits sellers who do not need the full amount for their property upfront. Typically, sellers lease their property for weekly or monthly payments with the option to purchase at an agreed point in time. This is one of the best options for acquiring close to full value for your property, albeit over a longer period of time.
