Selling your Grand Prairie house can be a large feat. When you hire an agent, the process will probably take a lot longer than a direct sale and may cost you more in the long run too! Continue reading to see how much time it takes to sell will financially affect you.
Although there is no way to determine how long your house will be sold when you list your house with Grand Prairie an agent, you can plan ahead if you choose to sell directly. In our latest post, we’ll see how long it takes to sell your house and what common things can cause delays.
If You List…
Getting It Ready For The Market
If you decide to list your Grand Prairie House, you will probably need some time to prepare it for the market. You’re going to want to clean up, remove personal belongings, repair and possibly set up the show house.
Finding The Right Agent
Choosing an agent could also take some time. You don’t want to work with the first agent you meet. Instead, you will probably do some research, talk to friends and family who sold recently and talk to a couple of agents before you decide who to hire.
Waiting For A Buyer
You’re at the mercy of the market once the house has been listed. There is no guarantee that you will immediately find a buyer or that you will get the price you ask for. Your property can only sit on the MLS to receive offers that are less than you expected. You never know how long this part of the process is going to take, making it difficult to plan ahead.
The Inspection Process
Once an offer has been made, the lender of your buyer will require an inspection and appraisal. If you do not appreciate what you lend, the loan will not be financed. If the property has problems, you must either make additional repairs or negotiate the price with your buyers.. When pricing your home, be sure to prepare for this step. The value of your home can change greatly once it has been inspected. Some sellers also choose to pay for an inspection before placing it on the market. This ensures that after an offer has been made, there are no surprises.
When You Sell Directly…
Get An Offer
If you sell to Top DFW House Buyers directly, you immediately receive an offer. Then it is up to you to decide whether this is the right choice for you. We understand that some time may be needed to think or run the numbers. We will never put you on a sale.
If you choose to accept our offer, it may be closed within a few days. With a direct sale to Top DFW House Buyers, all listing costs( repairs, commissions, closing costs, etc. ) are avoided and you can plan ahead knowing exactly when the house will close. For many properties in Grand Prairie, a direct sale is a faster and more cost-effective solution. You don’t have to repair or hire an agent to sell. Find out if a direct sale is right for you before you decide to list it. There is never any commitment!.
