Here are a few things to keep in mind when you work with a “we buy houses in Bakersfield” company.
Is Your Money or Your Time Most Valuable to You?
Many people might initially answer this question quickly by saying time, but then they will proceed to use up months of their time trying to sell their house in order to get every last cent out of it. There is nothing wrong with this approach, it simply shows that at this point in some people’s lives, they prefer more money instead of free time. Some people are in a different stage of life, or maybe have a different set of circumstances in which selling their property might require a lot more time than others and the money just simply isn’t worth it. People choose both all the time, you just need to identify which one is most important to you.
Selling your property for top dollar in order to get everything out of it that you can may take months of waiting on the market. The higher you make your asking price, the fewer buyers you will attract, which means the less offers you will get, and the longer it will take to actually sell it.
As you might suspect, it is not easy to get the full market value for your home if you are selling it fast for cash. To get the full market value of your house, you may have to wait 3-6+ months… and often will need a real estate agent out there marketing your house to find you the best buyer. Real estate agents charge a commission (usually between 3-6% of the sale price)… so if it takes you 6 months to sell and you have to pay a 5% commission… is that worth the wait? Some would say yes, others would say no. It is important that you are aware of what you could be signing up for.
On the flip side, “we buy houses” companies in Bakersfield like Buyers of Bakersfield will come and evaluate your home and try to calculate what it would be worth when it’s fully fixed and cleaned up. Then we would subtract the cost of repairs and the cost of holding onto the property for a few months and make room for some profit as well, which means that our offers will not be full retail value.
This doesn’t mean that a lower offer isn’t fair, it is simply keeping in mind the work and risk involved in buying a property with cash in as-is condition.
We can buy your house quickly in as little as 10 days and in some cases we can help you sell your house in 5 days! If selling your Bakersfield house quickly is important to you, we can help you!

Do You Know How to Market Your Property Yourself?
Another big factor that local Bakersfield cash home buyers like Buyers of Bakersfield can offer is we take 100% of all of the work and hassle to sell your house off of your hands.

No, we’re not listing your house as an agent does. With that route… you’ll still have to clean up your house… get it ready to show it when the streams of potential buyers want to see it… go back and forth through your agent with the buyers on price and terms, etc. It can be a lot of work.
Especially if your house here in Bakersfield needs some work.
