Selling My House Fast in Bakersfield – What Are Your Options?
Lately, the financing world has been really screwy. Lenders change their program requirements at the last minute – and for normal purchasers, that could very well delay your sale.
Keep in mind that anyone can write a cash offer, even if they’re borrowing money to purchase the property. So when you’re selling a house through a real estate agent to an end buyer… be prepared that if the buyers financing falls through… you’ll have to start the sale process all over again… adding more months to the process, more holding costs you have to pay for, and more. This is one of the most common complaints from homeowners trying to sell their houses traditionally. They wait by the phone waiting for the call that the property has finally closed, only to find out that the financing has dropped out yet again. This can happen multiple times before finding the right buyer that actually qualifies and follows through with their offer.
To avoid having the buyer pull out at the last second because of financing… one option is to sell your house to a local investment firm like us.
Often, qualified investors have access to multiple lines of credit with public and private lenders that is secured by other assets.
That means we can close quickly and we don’t have to wait for a bank loan to come through. You get your sale done and cash in hand quickly.
You’ll have to do some due diligence to make sure you’re dealing with a qualified local investor. Qualified investors will have no problem providing you access to bankers and references who can verify the investor’s ability to close on the loan. This is often referred to as “proof of funds.” While legitimate buyers will have proof of funds, there are other investors that do not have any intention of purchasing your property themselves, they are simply looking to resell your property for a profit to another investor that can close. These investors can be just as frustrating as an unqualified traditional buyer because oftentimes they cannot actually close and they leave you high and dry. A good solution to this problem is to make sure to collect an earnest money deposit.
If you’ve taken a cash offer with an earnest money deposit, you might be entitled to keep the deposit if the buyer can’t close on the purchase. This helps you protect your time by holding the investor accountable to do what they say they will.
