If you have a house in Baltimore MD there is a chance that you’re procrastinating selling because of the necessary repairs. There are a number of reasons why it needs to be repaired:
- There is mold in the basement
- The roof is leaking and needs to be replaced
- The kitchen cabinets are starting to show their age
- Rooms need to be painted
- The heating and cooling system is not working properly
- Windows don’t open and close with ease
And the list could go on and on…
You could go through the effort of making the repairs but this requires a lot of time, money, and expertise. Once you do finally get the house in showable condition, you’ll have to find a real estate agent that you trust and pay them a hefty real estate commission. The worst part is that after all these costs there’s no guarantee that you’ll get your money back out on the investment. Market buyers are finicky and Baltimore is traditionally a buyer’s market.
What if I told you there was a way to sell your house with no repairs and no real estate agent commission in Baltimore? You may have never heard of this, but there are companies in Baltimore that will buy your house directly from you in cash. It may sound too good to be true, but it is not. We’re one of these companies and we buy houses in Baltimore in any condition.
What if I’m not handy – Can a cash house buyer help?
I get it, not everyone is handy. Very few of us were though growing up how to patch drywall, replumb a sink, or replace a window. If you’re not handy then your options are to hire the work out to contractors who charge an arm and a leg or you can sell to a company like us, Dependable Homebuyers. The advantage of selling to us is that we have crews of contractors on staff who provide quality work at a reasonable price. We are then able to pass along these saving to you, the seller, so that you can walk away with more money in your pocket.
Seems like an easy decision, right? This is why dozens of Baltimore homeowners decide to sell their property directly to us each year instead of going the traditional route of listing with a real estate agent. When was the last time a real estate agent fixed up your house and let you keep the savings? We’re guessing never and that one of our top competitive advantages.
What if I am handy – Why should I consider a cash house buyer like Dependable Homebuyers?
You may be thinking to yourself, “I’m handy. Why wouldn’t I just do the work myself?” That’s a fine question. Sometime it is worth the effort, but you have to ask yourself, “Why have I pushed off doing the work for so long?”
If you’re good at what you do then you’re likely a very busy person. Time is the one thing we can’t make more of and every hour you spend working on the house is another hour that you could be spending making money at what you do best. We all start with the best of intentions, but when it comes to scheduling time it always comes down to prioritizing.
Despite your ability to repair the home, you may come out ahead by selling to Dependable Homebuyers. Sit down and honestly estimate the number of hours you think it’ll take to finish renovating your Baltimore property. Them multiply this number by the amount you could make hourly at your job. You may find that your time is a lot more valuable than the sliver of extra profit you could make by doing the work yourself and listing with a real estate agent.
Don’t forget, time is money
Remember, as you hold onto your house you’ll be paying expensive like utility bills, tax bills, water and sewage bills, insurance, and mortgage payment. These costs slowly eat away at your profits and even if you could sell for a higher amount with a real estate agent, you may still find yourself walk away with less money than if you sold to a house buying company like Dependable Homebuyers.
By selling your house fast you’ll be able to save on all these additional holding expensive and not have to risk additional repairs down the line. We buy houses fast and are able to provide you a fair cash offer today. Give us a call at (410) 779-4622!
Couldn’t I just list my Baltimore house in “as-is” condition?
It’s true, there’s nothing stopping you from listing your property today with a real estate agent. This may seem like the best of both worlds, retail prices with no repairs, but you have to think of who would actually be looking at your property. Unfortunately it is unlikely that traditional Baltimore homeowners will have thousands of dollars lying around to purchase your property in cash. They will likely need a loan from a bank and banks only lend on properties that do not need serious repairs. Even if you get the property under contract, it is likely that the lender will require you to make these repairs anyways, before they’ll be willing to issue the loan for purchase.
Outside of traditional homeowners, you’d be looking at either investors or house buyers just like us. The difference is, instead of selling your house directly to us you’d be selling through a real estate agent who would take a large portion of your profits. In this case the better route is to skip the real estate agent and sell to us directly.
