As like with anything, not all things are created equal. If you are thinking of contacting a cash buyer to sell your St. Petersburg home fast, you may do an online search and feel a bit overwhelmed trying to figure out who to call. Once you make your list of people to call, you may wonder what you should ask. The decision to sell a home, whether conventional or through a cash buyer, is a big decision that you should approach carefully.
When approaching this decision and selecting a company, here are a few questions to ask of who you contact to ensure you get the most fair deal and a smooth and fast transaction:
- How long have you been a cash buyer?
Experience counts. At Property Solutions of Tampa Bay Inc., we’ve been helping homeowners who need to sell their homes quickly since 1997. We have seen it all from situations to conditions of homes. We work with homeowners in some sticky situations such as divorces, foreclosure, probate, and bad renters, and we approach each situation with care. We understand the situations that lead someone to need a quick sell are not easy ones. We’ve also seen homes in all conditions from those needing some quick fixes to others needing gutting and remodeling. Our experience means we can help you no matter the situation, and you can put your trust in our years of business in the St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay markets. You should protect your interests and know who you’re working with has the experience to help your situation.
- Are you local to the St. Petersburg/Tampa Bay areas?
There are many cash buyers who do business nationwide. They may not be well-versed in any one market. Knowing the local market matters to give the seller the best cash offer. Also, it’s important to know that for every legitimate cash buyer such as Property Solutions of Tampa Bay, Inc., there are other companies who either collect leads and sell them to the highest bidder or search cities to make low-ball deals. The company’s history and reputation will likely be more transparent when dealing with a local buyer. Also you’ll have greater assurance the buyer cares about you and your mutual community.
- How long is your closing period?
A seasoned cash buyer will be able to close quickly. At Property Solutions of Tampa Bay, Inc., we can often close in as little as 7 days and get cash in your hands fast. We make offers within 24 hours and once accepted move towards closing on your schedule. Our timelines are flexible, but we understand the situations homeowners may be facing and that a quick transaction often allows the seller to move on with life and let go of the stress of a home that is not serving them.
By asking these questions of cash buyers, you’ll feel assured you are making the right decisions for you and your home. We are always available for a conversation about your property or to answer any questions you may have before you make the important decision to sell. Don’t hesitate to contact us through our website or by phone at 727-528-4687.
