Do you need to sell your house? Our team would love the chance to show you what we can do! I wanted to compile a list of the things that I think are important to follow up on with both us and other buyers you interview so that you can make a great, win-win decision
As I scroll through Google and see all the “fly by night” companies with weird (WeBuyFastForCash.net, am I right?!) it just strikes me as crazy that there are so many people out there who claim to be professional home buyers! However, not all of them will operate in the same way and the differences can be pretty startling. Some are just fly by night, some are looking to get the best deal possible, and some love real estate and having the ability to help people sell unwanted homes. Liberty is my personal, full time passion project and I try to prove daily that we are the latter! That said, it’s important to make that decision on your own so here are a few points to follow up on as you start looking for the best match.
They Should Have Excellent RECENT References
A great home buyer will come highly recommended. Before working with someone, take a look at their public reviews. Here are ours by the way! Sites like Google and Facebook will give you some insight into how they do business. You can also ask them for references directly. Not just their happiest customer, but try to speak to the last three or so people they have worked with. At Liberty we are happy to provide you with as many references as you want!
They’ve Been In The Business Awhile
So, obviously this is somewhat relative. Someone can be new to the business and still be a great person to work with… everyone has to start somewhere. We’ve been at this for about 4 years (at the time of writing) and it takes time to learn the ins and outs. That said, be wary of people who are new to home buying and quite honestly those that seem a bit to young. No disrespect to the youngsters, you just want someone who has had some experience, has owned a few houses, etc. Those with less experience may have issues navigating the particular issues your situation may have and now is not the time for mistakes!
They Do What They Say They’ll Do – Communication!
A great property buyer will always keep their word. They will close when they say they will, for the price you have agreed upon. You aren’t going to get the run-around or have to worry about not getting what you think you will for the house. If a buyer fails to show up on time, if they change their offer around, or if they give you information that you know to be false, you will likely need to run the other way.
Additionally, they communicate clearly and effectively. Follow up, information and guidance through what can be a daunting process is invaluable. If you feel like someone drops in and out of communication when things are easy, what will happen when they go south?!
They Will Help You Compare Your Options
A great property buyer isn’t trying to get rich quick. When you work with the right one, you will see that they are simply people who are passionate about real estate and helping people with unwanted properties. When you work with us, we will take the time to help you compare all of your available options. We aren’t going to try to convince you that selling to us is the only answer. Instead, we will sit down with you, look at your property and situation, and help you understand all of your selling options from a financial perspective. In fact, I recommend you get multiple offers if you feel it’s necessary. More information is a good thing!
They Know The Local Market
A great home buyer in Killeen will know the local market as good, if not better than any local agent. They will know about current trends, what’s selling, who is buying, and how to make their clients profit. Working with a professional and knowledgeable home buyer will help you find the peace-of-mind you need when selling your home.
For many homeowners, working with a direct buyer proves to be the best way o go when selling their home. Without the repair costs, commissions, and wasted time, homeowners have the potential to save thousands on the sale. If you want to sell a house in Killeen, consider a direct offer! Just make sure you are working with a professional home buyer who meets all of the criteria listed above!
