National firms like OfferPad, Knock, Home Partners, and the flock of local firms who purchase houses without intending to occupy are INVESTORS. Yes, they often buy property in any condition, for “cash” and can close quickly. That’s the good news. The bad news is the purchase price is often at a deep discount which is the trade-off for the convenience and ease of selling. Make no mistake, an investor is looking to profit from the deal.
Sellers – in most cases, your best buyer is someone who will purchase and occupy the house. While there are buyers who want move-in ready homes, others are specifically looking for property in need of repair and/or updating. Don’t automatically assume you have to sell to an investor if the house needs work or you want to sell as-is. The investor route does not need to be your first choice even when there is a need to sell quickly as it is quite common in this low inventory market for houses to go under contract in a few days or weeks.
