Did someone make you a cash offer on your home?
Did it seem too low? Or maybe it seemed too good to be true?
Whatever the case, when professional homebuyers make offers, they don’t always disclose WHY their offer is what it is… or even if it’s actually “fair” or not.
And you’re not a real estate expert — so how are you supposed to know whether their offer is worth taking?
Well, at Flavortown Properties, we’ve been making people ACTUALLY fair cash offers in Columbus for quite some time now.
And here’s some advice for how you can protect yourself and make sure that you’re profiting as much as possible on the sale of your home!
Ask Them To Explain The Math — This is the easiest way to determine if the buyer’s offer is good or not. Ask them to explain their comps. If they’re trustworthy, then they won’t have a problem with doing this. But it’s definitely a red flag if they avoid the question.
Negotiate — Professional buyers are used to negotiating with home sellers, so don’t be afraid to roll up your sleeves and discuss the price with them. Remember, until you sign a contract, the power is in your hands.
Understand Their Process — Typically, the benefits of selling to a professional home buyer are that being able to sell quickly and with fewer expenses than usual. But the buyer wants to make money on their end as well, so keep that in mind when they make their offer; it’s going to be a touch below market value. It’s a trade-off.
