Worried about selling your house in Hawaii during these uncertain times? Many home sellers aren’t sure what do do when selling their house or how to start. Before you put your home on the market, learn about these 5 ways a direct sale is may benefit homeowners in Hawaii!
Right now in the crazy summer of 2020, things are a bit strange for the economy and the overall housing market. People are adjusting to a slightly (ok, significantly) new way of life, if temporarily, and people are using new ways to buy and sell real estate in Hawaii. Many home sellers are taking their listings and home sales virtual or working with directly companies that buy houses (like Oahu Home Buyers) to quickly sell without all of the hassle. A direct sale can offer peace of mind and make the entire selling process run much more smoothly.
One of the biggest benefits of selling your house directly is how much time you’ll save vs trying to sell on the public MLS. With a direct sale, a homeowner is able to sell their unwanted home very quickly, sometimes in a couple of weeks or even less. When selling with a real estate agent, the process can take weeks, months, or in some cases, the house may not sell at all, which will put the homeowner back at square one (or worse, if you consider the wasted holding costs). Why is this? Simply because an agent doesn’t control the “buyer side” of the sale – they can’t force someone to come in and buy the house. They’re at the mercy of the Hawaii housing market. They can put your best foot forward, but unless they’re going to buy it themselves, then there’s only so much they can control.
For homeowners who need to sell their Hawaii house fast, paying the continued holding costs can be a tremendous burden. Utility bills, property taxes, homeowners insurance, and a mortgage you can’t afford can add up quickly. You can find yourself spending tens of thousands on the home while the property is sitting on the market. We work with homeowners throughout the Hawaii area who have tried to list a house, only to have the listing expire and their name still attached to the house. When you sell your house to Oahu Home Buyers, you can be assured that the property will sell on your timeframe. Of course, if you need more time, we are happy to work with you to close on the property at your convenience.
Do you know how much money it takes to list a house in Hawaii successfully? While the price does vary depending on the home, according to The Balance, it can take up to 10% of your final sale price when all is said and done. So if your house were to sell for $650,000, that’s up to $65,000 right out the door. Selling your house directly will not only save you thousands in commissions, but we will save you in holding costs, listing fees, repairs (regular buyers almost always ask for repairs), and closing costs. At Oahu Home Buyers, we believe that you shouldn’t have to pay for anything when selling your house. We will make you a fair and direct offer that will save you time and money on the sale of your home.
Let’s face it — with the Covid-19 situation affecting almost every aspect of our lives right now, selling a house in 2020 is unlike any other time in history. People aren’t out and about viewing properties in person as much, or even giving as much thought to a move. A direct sale to Oahu Home Buyers means you will be able to sell your house without trying to prepare and schedule showings, hold an open house for the public (not even allowed at the time of this writing), or worry about all the cleaning required with so many people walking through your home. Selling your home to a direct buyer is the easiest way to quickly sell your house in Hawaii. In fact, when working with Oahu Home Buyers almost the entire process can be done virtually. Remote closings and the ability to sign documents digitally make the selling process easier for everyone involved.
