Time and money are crucial factors when you are selling your home and should not be overlooked. In fact, one of the first things that I tell people is that we are in the business of exchanging speed and convenience for money. Let’s dive into how you can sell your local Killeen house fast and get cash for your house in the process without having to list your house with a real estate agent, or wait months for it to sell.
How Does Cash For Homes in Killeen Work?
Finding reputable local Killeen buyers like Liberty who pay cash for homes can be a daunting task. However, with a little research, you can find that there are several companies (including us!!!) out there looking to buy property for cash. Here are some of the things you should look at when you’re deciding who to work with.
And before you dive in below… if you’re not sure how the process of a cash buyer like Liberty Home Buyers buying your local Killeen house works… check out our “How it Works” page on this site and our FAQ.
Price And Time/Convenience Are Trade-Offs – Which Is More Important To You?
Let’s be honest, it’s not easy to get the full market value for your home if you are selling it fast for cash. To get the full market value of your house, you will need to go through a “traditional” sale with an agent marketing your house to find you the best buyer. Real estate agents charge a commission (6 percent of the sales price is pretty standard)… so if it takes you 6 months to sell and you have to pay a 5% commission… is that worth the wait? Consider taxes, utilities, insurance, etc.
But most of all, consider repairs! If your property is in tip-top shape then do the traditional sale. You will get the most money and although it will take longer it will almost certainly be worth it.
Truth be told, most of the house we deal with have…. issues 🙂
Repairs, bad tenants, back taxes, divorce, you name it. We will personally evaluate your house, determine what it’s worth if it’s fully fixed up and how much we’ll have to invest in repairing / renovating the property… how long it will take us… and of course we have to turn a reasonable profit for our risk in buying the house, renovating, and selling it… so we do tend to make offers that are below the full retail market value… but as high as we can to make it a win-win situation. As I like to say, I can’t force anyone to sell a house so it’s always worth getting an offer!
That said, keep in mind that there are some benefits that come with working with companies that buy houses in Killeen like Liberty Home Buyers. We can close quickly (in as little as 7 days if you need us to)… so if selling your house fast with zero hassle at all is more important than getting every penny out of the sale…
We can make you a fast no-hassle offer in less than 24 hours.
We like to make sure every house seller we work with knows all of their options, and we even encourage you to get other offers and shop them around. We won’t be offering the lowest price in town… we often won’t offer you the highest price… but you can be assured that when we make you an offer, we’ll follow through with what we say we’ll do.
How Much Work Do You Want To Put Into Making Your Killeen House Sell?
Another consideration is that we take 100% of all of the work and hassle to sell your house off of your hands. We handle it all… or at least as much as possible.
No, we’re not listing your house like an agent does. With that route… you’ll still have to clean up your house… get it ready to show it when the streams of potential buyers want to see it… go back and forth through your agent with the buyers on price and terms, etc. It can be a lot of work. We handle all of the contracts, title company, repairs, you name it!
Especially if your house here in Killeen needs some work.
We offer cash for houses in Central Texas because we’re professional home buyers based locally here in Killeen. If a house needs work, we’ll buy it as-is and we’ll pay for the repairs it needs out of our pocket after we buy it from you. And you won’t have to worry about the paperwork either… we’ll do everything through a reputable, local title company that we have a long relationship with, Texas Title & The Pearson Law Firm. Great team!
Basically, we can make you a fair all cash offer on your Killeen house and if it’s a fit, great! We’ll handle everything.
Do Your Research And Trust Your Gut
Before you decide to go with an investor offering cash for your property, be sure to investigate their reputation carefully. Consider asking for references from the investor. Talk to people the investor has worked with in the past to determine whether they are the right fit for you.
There are people out there who are less than honest… so make sure to do your research, talk to them and make sure you can trust them, and that they can actually close on the offer they made you on time.
