In addition to avoiding all of the hassles of listing your home on the market, making a direct sale of your California house will also save you money in the following ways.
No Repairs or Renovations
The traditional home-sell process includes inspections and appraisals, resulting in many homeowners investing thousands of dollars in a home they’re ready to leave. If you pass inspections, you may be faced with a large repair bill for an issue you weren’t aware of. Often, buyers won’t be able to see the potential you think your property possesses because they cannot see beyond outdated items. A home’s upgrades can be anything from new cabinetry to new flooring, woodwork, or even paint.
Pack and Go
Are you cleaning? Sell direct and forget about it! Many buyers do not have the vision to see beyond your clutter or any apparent decorative flaws, which is why real estate agents are experienced in this area. Their advice will be to keep nearly every surface free of objects. The most personal items, such as photos and mementos. In today’s real estate market, a real estate agent will likely advise you to store your own belongings and to spend more on staging the home for advertising and showings. Keeping up the curb appeal is also crucial for these reasons. Thus, the home buyer can visualize how they would live in it. You can save all the costs involved in a deep clean of your California home when you sell directly. In many cases, you can just leave behind any items you’d rather not take along to your new residence.
Forget Closing Costs
If you sell directly in California, you’ll save money since you’ll eliminate most of the fees associated with traditional closings. In most cases, you’ll also be able to avoid the fees usually associated with appraisals and inspections. Particularly on newer or recently renovated properties.
No Marketing Expenses
Any marketing expenses you incur will be passed on to you whether you work with a real estate agent or sell your home on your own. As a rule of thumb, the more you spend, the better your advertising vehicle and reach to the public. Your home must be picture-perfect as part of the marketing plan.
Monthly Costs Eliminated
When you’ve relocated for work or personal reasons, the monthly costs of homeownership can add a lot of pressure. Taxes, mortgage, insurance, utilities, and maintenance can add up to thousands of dollars. Repair bills can be extremely expensive if your home is aging, and they usually deplete your funds on a regular basis. Financial burdens and personal stress can add up quickly. With a direct sale, you could literally save thousands!
