Are you ready to sell your home in Hawaii but are hesitant because of the high commissions traditionally paid to a real estate agent and maybe some embarrassment over having the public root around your home? Would you rather not deal with mountains of paperwork, time spent on marketing, trying to understand a myriad of legal issues, coordinating public showings, and all other hassles of listing for yourself? Did you know there is another option just a phone call away?
With a direct sale to a company that buys houses in Hawaii, you can skip all the hurdles of finding interested buyers and helping them qualify for a mortgage by scheduling inspections, appraisals, and all too often, being asked to make unexpected repairs at your own expense, not theirs. When you sell your Hawaii house directly, a professional buyer from our team will purchase your home as it sits today, so making repairs will no longer be of any concern to you, even if it’s in what’s called “teardown” condition.
If you’ve come to the conclusion that a direct sale is the best method to sell your home, it is essential to know who your buyer really is before you sign on the dotted line. Do your homework first to ensure that you are working with an upstanding company. Read about the following five signs you can trust your buyer when selling your house directly in Hawaii.
A professional, trustworthy buyer puts the offer in writing. While shaking hands is a classic, time-honored tradition in business, a true professional should present any business transaction of significance in writing (digital or paper), especially a contract to sell your home. An indication you can have confidence in your buyer when selling your house directly in Hawaii is their willingness to make sure you understand all of the steps in the process – there are no ‘stupid questions’ and don’t worry about repeating yourself; it’s important you understand all the moving pieces. Direct buyers like us at Oahu Home Buyers go over the contract with you to ensure that you feel the offer is presented clearly.
Keeping the transaction simple, efficient, and straightforward with no hidden fees or surprises awaiting you at closing is a strong sign that you can trust your buyer when selling your house directly in Hawaii. A direct buyer should make an offer you feel is fair; explaining exactly how much cash you will walk away from the closing with should not be a mystery.
So how does the process actually work? One of us will speak with you to first understand your goals (instead of just presenting a rough ‘take it or leave it’ cash offer that other companies often do). We want to understand the property, any surrounding issues regarding a mortgage, lien or other debt, and then your goals for the near future. We’ll then provide you with one or more options to consider; if one works, then we open escrow with a local title and escrow company and proceed to our closing. Simple and straightforward.
When selling your house directly in Hawaii, look up online reviews (like our 5-star reviews here on Google). You should not find reviews about feeling pressured to rush into a decision or being confused about the process. Find a professional buyer that understands that they must listen to you to help you solve your problems, or what we call our ‘reverse engineering’ approach. The power of cash allows an experienced buyer like those at Oahu Home Buyers to close quickly (if that’s something you need), so you can pay off creditors or even avoid foreclosure procedures. And because we won’t be moving in, working with a direct buyer like us means delaying closing is no problem if you need time before relocating to find a new place or handle any personal affairs.
Another good signal you can trust your home buyer when selling your house directly in Hawaii is that they’ve been in business successfully for many years and aren’t some ‘fly by night’ operation. Longevity means experience, knowledge, efficient systems, and quality relationships (very important in real estate where multiple professionals usually play a role in a successful closing). You do not want to deal with inexperienced buyers who tie up your house awaiting financing approval or try to ‘repackage’ or wholesale it without any ability or intent to actually close themselves. It is an expensive lesson to learn that the mortgage lender has denied the loan because they went on a spending spree after the loan application was approved or that the ‘buyer’ doesn’t have two nickels to rub together.
Working with a professional buyer who operates primarily in Hawaii lets you know they understand the local conditions and factors that often become important when selling your home. While helping neighbors solve financial or personal problems one home at a time, the work of professional buyers also improves Hawaii‘s communities and the overall lifestyle for all residents. Direct buyers like those of us here at Oahu Home Buyers don’t see you as just another number – we care deeply about the individuals and families in our communities and are proud of the work we do. We have many happy customers we’ve helped over the years — you can read our testimonials here.
