Do you need to sell your house nut want to avoid all the costs in NJ? In our latest post, we will share with you several ways to not only save money but to sell without any cost whatsoever. Read the blog post below to find out!
If you have listed a New Jersey house in the past, you know that the process can take a long time and be expensive. Depending on the property and situation, home sellers in NJ face a number of costs when putting their homes on the MLS. Listing can require you to make repairs, clean the whole house every time a potential buyer shows up, market, stage, and prepare the property for open houses and showings.
Whether you choose to work with a direct buyer or list the property on the New Jersey MLS, the best way to avoid costs, is to sell it as-is. Usually that means selling the house quickly to an investor or to a private buyer like us. While you can choose to list it, houses that need work don’t always photograph well and could end up sitting on the market for a long time before you get a solid offer. The majority of homebuyers are looking for houses that they can move in right away, turnkey. If you can sell your house to an investor as-is, you will probably save thousands of dollars on repairs and time! According to BankRate, you can expect to spend about 10% of the price of the house when you list it on the MLS.
Finding The Right Buyer
Again, as already said, the vast majority of the first time homebuyers want to buy a house that they can move in immediately. Houses that aren’t visually appealing don’t do as well on the MLS. Pictures are the first thing people see, so a run-down house isn’t going to look as appealing as the turnkey property next door. In the other hand, if you want to sell your house as-is, without making any repairs or upgrades, you need to find a buyer that is willing to take the job. Local New Jersey investors can help you by purchasing your property outright without any hassles or hang-ups. Just keep in mind that not all investors are the same. Some won’t be able to follow through on their offers and some won’t make realistic offers at all. That’s not the case with Orange Sun Investments! When you sell your house to us directly, you will be able to avoid commissions, repair costs, and many other expenses New Jersey homeowners face when selling their properties. Plus, you will never have to worry about the sale falling through at the last minute.
Where You Can Save
There are numerous costs sellers face when putting their house on the MLS. Most houses require repairs and possibly upgrades to stay competitive with others on the market. Some homeowners opt to decorate or stage their home to make it more appealing for photos and showings. There are the continued costs while the house sits on the market for things like utilities, maintenance, and taxes. Then, to top it all off, when the house does eventually sell, the homeowner will have to pay agent fees and commissions, which will likely total thousands of dollars. Also, when you are dealing with private buyers, you should be prepared for negotiations after the inspections and appraisals have been completed. And if your buyer is using financing, the house needs to appraise high enough in order for the loan to be approved. All of these costs can add up to a fortune. Many home sellers walk away with much less then they had intended when listing a house in New Jersey. With a fast and direct sale to Orange Sun Investments, all of the aforementioned costs can be avoided, helping you to sell your house without any cost.
If you are able to find a buyer who can close quickly on the house, you will potentially be able to save thousands. The costs of owning a house add up fast. Ask any flipper and they will tell you that the longer you hold a property, the more it is ultimately costing you. If you list your house, it could take months before all is said and done. But with a fast and direct sale, without agents or lenders, you will immediately be free of the property’s financial requirements.
