The Truth About IBuyer Companies that offer to buy your home for cash, such as Open Door, Orchard, Zillow, Redfin, Offerpad, and many others.
1. These Companies Are Investors looking to make a profit on your home by reselling on the open market.
2. They offer 90% below market value, charge a convenience fee up to 7% and then deduct another $5,000-$10,000 for repairs that they say you need once they complete an assessment on your home.
3. The fees are higher than a traditional sale with a real estate agent or realtor.
4. But what your paying for is the convenience of not having to show your home to potential buyers and a quick close with cash.
Although the new methods of selling your home for cash quickly may sound appealing always, always, explore your options. Your job as a home owner is to Protect Your Equity (Your Money)! These companies are deducting their expenses (realtor fees, closing costs, repair fees etc.) from your profit. Than they will go and resell your home on the open market most times “as is”, without doing any repairs to the highest bidder. The repairs fees that they deducted from your profit, will become their profit, as the new buyer may not even require repairs.
How much money will you leave on the table selling to one of these companies??
