Got a question about how this all works at Swell Real Estate Investments? We're here to help!
When we buy houses, every home owner's situation is unique, as is the process by which we determine what we are willing to offer for a home. The things we take into consideration include the age and condition of a home, costs of needed repairs, as well as the urgency of your individual situation.
The following example can help you understand all of the costs involved in a standard home sale process."Fair Market Value" is the term for the gross revenue from selling a home. For this example, let's say you have a property "worth" $200,000. On average, 90-95% of that value would be offered for that home across the country. You might get an offer for that value within 90 days, and that is if you are fortunate. Even if all goes well, you would need to give another 30-45 days for closing, and then, once all is said and done, you could make four or five extra mortgage payments on your home since originally listing it for sale. Tack on to that the typical real estate commission of 7% for your realtor, plus a 3% closing cost, in addition to any repair costs (paint, carpet, roofing, etc), and you have a sensible picture of the traps in the 'traditional' house selling process.
Our process ensures we can help you save time and money by getting an offer in front of you quickly so that you don't have to endure the anxiety and uncertainty of waiting.
Our suggestion would be that you first fill out the home info form so that we can contact you. After that has been done, you may then wish to consult a realtor and see what would happen if you find your own buyer. Sometimes their commission can be waived or fees can be largely reduced.
We deal with persons regularly who are unsatisfied with their current realtor. If you are currently listed with a realtor, governing rules may prevent us from pursuing your business. However, we do give you the option of telling us when your listing expires, so that they may contact you at that time. Many Realtors will release you from a contract if you are dissatisfied, as well, and that release allows us to work with you, thus providing better options for selling your home.
We buy houses in all conditions.
I contacted Swell Real Estate Investments to help me sell a property in Tallahassee and they were great with communication and helped me sell the home within two weeks after I brought them the deal. The process working with them was smooth and seamless. I would recommend using them — without using them I may not have sold the property. It was a pleasure to work with Tim & Lee, thanks again!!
Do you only buy houses? Or will you buy condos, manufactured housing, etc?
We buy houses, but also much more. We will consider buying townhouses, condominiums, duplexes, beach property, office buildings, farms, land, or any building that has deeded land attached, such as manufactured housing or mobile homes.
What is your fee?
There is absolutely no fee to the home seller when working with one of our home buyers.
Absolutely not. You are under no obligation until you have entered into a signed contract with one of our home buyers. You would have a similar obligation with any real estate transaction.
