At LikeToSellNow.com we want you to know that “we buy homes” also. The difference is we make the process much easier than the other guys. We understand that there may be many factors that go into a decision to sell your home. We want to make sure we help you get through the process and help to create a situation that is good for you. In this post we want to share some tips to look out for when selling your home.
Work with professionals only
There are a lot of companies who advertise “we buy homes” that invest in and buy homes. There are also a lot of companies that are more interested in taking your money than helping you be successful with the sale of your home. If the company that you are thinking about working with does not seem professional it may be time to look for another company.
Do your homework on the buyer
The internet allows you to learn a great deal about the companies and individuals you do business with. Take the time to check out the buyer of your house and make sure that nothing points to a sign of something bad. Remember it is rare that people will post good things about others online. Typically those people that are mad or wronged in some way are the most verbal. Often a lack of negative reviews can be a sign of a company that is reputable but has not spent time working on their social brand.
Take the time to fully understand what you are signing
There should be no secrets in a deal as large as selling your home. Take the time to read through all material so you have a full understanding of what you are signing. If you do not understand something take the time to ask your representative. If you are still not comfortable after the explanation do not sign. You should make sure you understand the agreements and contracts you are signing. A good buyer should be able to explain them adequately.
Don’t settle for a hand shake
Long Gone are the days where a deal could be handled with a handshake. Do not verbally agree on any terms, changes, or other contractually binding elements. Make sure that you put all changes in writing. Written contracts are designed to protect both sides during the transaction.
Be willing to walk the walk
Sometimes a deal just is not meant to be. Be prepared and willing to walk away from a deal if it is not the deal you want.
