If something seems too good to be true, it probably isn’t. Then you might think it’s impossible that a seasoned home buyer might get in touch with you and make you an offer on your house that’s reasonable. There are some myths that need to be debunked, I suppose. We don’t want you to lose a fantastic win-win chance by accepting common misconceptions about home purchasers.
Here Are The Big Myths We Would Like to Bust About Reputable Businesses Like Little Rock Property Buyers
As professional home and property buyers, we face these concerns regularly and seek to overcome them. While we know that there are some dishonest and unprofessional home buyers, we believe the reputable ones rise to the top over time. Here are some of the major myths we want busted.
Big Myth #1 – Professional Home buyers Will Reveal Hidden Fees At The Last Minute.
You may have heard that home buyers are similar to the shady used car salesmen you have heard (or experienced), where you are thrilled about a great deal, but after lengthy negotiations and a decision, the “fine print” of the additional costs emerges, leaving you feeling completely frustrated and disappointed.
BUSTED – Truly Professional Home Buyers Like Little Rock Property Buyers Do Not Have Any Hidden Last-Minute Fees.
Even though there are always con artists around, their careers are short in this industry. They soon develop a reputation in the community, and Google or Facebook reviews swiftly bring their transgressions to light. There are no hidden costs for experienced house purchasers. When you receive an offer from us for your property, we stand by it, and everything is made clear up front so that you can make an informed decision.
Big Myth #2 – Professional Home buyers Will Force You To Pay for Repairs Based On An Inspection.
The myth is explained as follows. You accept a reasonable offer, but before the transaction is completed, the home buyers call you to let you know that an inspection has been completed and revealed many significant problems that you would need to pay to address before the sale can be closed.
BUSTED – Professional Home Buyers Should Never Force You To Pay For Repairs After They Make You An Offer.
Genuine house buyers are trained to thoroughly evaluate the property when they come to look at your home so they can make a reasonable offer knowing that their investors will be responsible for any necessary repairs, no matter how modest. Never will they demand payment for repairs. If they try to do that, get out of there. They are not to be believed. Check out this article on 10 signs of a great professional home buying company.
Big Myth #3 Professional Home Buyers Are Not Fair And Offer Prices That Take Advantage Of Sellers Who Need To Sell Quicky.
The myth is that because a person needs to sell quickly due to foreclosure, illness, or some other reason, the professional home buyer takes advantage of the situation and forces the poor seller into an awkward situation, pressures them, and forces them to take a major loss when they could have sold for tens of thousands more.
BUSTED – Professional Home Buyers Are Professionals. Those Who Try To Force You Into An Unfair Offer They Can’t Explain Are Not Professionals.
While cash buyers may be able to offer a quicker closing process and not be subject to financing contingencies, they still need to make a profit and will often offer fair market value for a property. There may be some home buying companies that do this type of thing, but they are not the ones with great reputations. We always encourage you to check Google reviews, call some satisfied clients of the company, and do your homework. A professional should be able to show you why the price they are offering you is fair. They may point to similar homes, those prices, and then explain why due to needed repairs, or clean-up of your property, they are offering a lower price. The offer should make sense to you. If it doesn’t call around and check with competitors.
Big Myth #4 Professional We Buy Houses Companies Are Only Looking For Houses That Are In Foreclosure And Not Ones With Other Major Problems.
This myth is that if a property is no in foreclosure, but instead just needs major repairs, clean-up, or remodeling, the home buyer is not interested. They only want houses that are in great condition, but can not be afforded by the owner.
