With a strong seller’s market like we’re experiencing now (although showing signs of concern as of May 2022), you may wonder why you’d consider selling your home to a professional investor like us. Unfortunately, not every property or situation makes sense for a traditional listing when selling a house on the market in Hawaii. When a traditional listing doesn’t make sense (for any of a number of reasons), you may want to consider a more convenient option. Consider working with a professional investor like Oahu Home Buyers who can help resolve your difficult issues. Read on to explore why you should seriously think about selling your house to a Hawaii investor.
Life has a way of surprising you, and not always in the best way. If you find yourself in a challenging financial situation and think selling your home will help alleviate the stress, before listing, you should consider selling your house to a Hawaii investor. Companies that buy houses in Hawaii like us at Oahu Home Buyers don’t charge commissions so that you can save more of the profits for yourself, too.
Suppose your home is on the dated side or even in need of serious repairs (leaky roof, un-level floors, etc.). In that case, you may also be concerned about the upfront out-of-pocket expenses you’ll have to cover, such as marketing, professional photography (required these days), and all the preparations and repairs that need to be done.
An experienced investor from Oahu Home Buyers can buy your home for cash in as-is condition, so you don’t need to spend another second worrying about passing any retail buyer’s home inspection. At Oahu Home Buyers, we want you to feel good about the sale long after closing (that’s why we have so many great testimonials).
Sometimes, time can be a really constraining factor. If you’re in a hurry to sell your house, before listing, you should strongly think about selling your house to a Hawaii investor. For example, perhaps your company requires you to move to the mainland or the military is moving you to a new base. Or maybe there is a personal reason you need to sell your home and relocate, such as a family emergency.
One of the concerns with listing your home on the Hawaii real estate market is the timing: you don’t know when or even if your house will sell at all! There’s no guaranteed buyer or closing date if there’s no buyer, right? For homes that aren’t in the best showing conditions (which is true for many houses in Hawaii), the response from a traditional listing can be disappointing; most buyers are seeking ready-to-move-in properties and don’t want to take on extensive renovations, even if they’re only cosmetic (these add up quickly).
No matter the reason, when you sell your house to a professional investor like those from Oahu Home Buyers, you will have a guaranteed closing date which can be as soon as two or three weeks away. However, if that’s just a bit too fast, talk to us at Oahu Home Buyers about your circumstances so we can set a closing date on the calendar a bit further into the future that works best for your upcoming move. Sometimes, slower is better as long as you can feel assured of the closing itself – that’s ok, too.
Often, the stress and intrusiveness of public showings are the #1 reason many people avoid listing with an agent at all. Scheduling for showings doesn’t always align with your family’s busy schedule (school, soccer practice, beach time), and many sellers find themselves running ragged to handle the strain. In addition, constantly keeping the home in showroom-ready condition can be exhausting, especially if you have children or pets that don’t know the first thing about keeping a home neat and organized. And if you do have pets, that means keeping up with loose hair on the furniture (and any smells) — daily.
These demands can be stressful and pile up quickly. If the thought of the general public walking through your house and looking through your bedrooms or even viewing it online doesn’t make you comfortable (lots of us), then before listing, you should rethink selling your house to a Hawaii investor like us. We can arrange for you to simply pack the belongings you want to keep and leave the rest behind, even the final clean-up. We’ll handle anything you don’t want to take with you.
