Do you want to sell your condo for cash? Do you want to sell your condo right now – this winter? Great news: Here’s how to sell your condo for cash in Southern California during the winter…
It’s one thing to try and sell your condo during the winter. A real estate agent might be able to find you a buyer who wants to buy right away and can get financing without a lot of delays. But what if you want to sell fast, for cash this winter? What should you do?
Frankly, you’ll probably want to skip working with a real estate agent and instead focus on a cash buyer who is able to move quickly, even during the winter season.
The Difference Between a Real Estate Agent and a Cash Buyer
A real estate agent will list your property and try to find a buyer who can help you. In most cases, that buyer will need to get bank financing.
Between the agent trying to find a buyer, and the buyer trying to get bank financing, you’ll be stuck waiting a while because this process can take months. You may end up waiting until spring, depending on when you list your condo.
How to Find a Cash Buyer
One way to find a cash buyer is to list your condo “For Sale By Owner” (FSBO). However, you’ll also need to specify that you’re only accepting cash offers, which will, of course, limit the number of people who will buy from you.
Another way to find a cash buyer is to look online for a “sell my condo fast” buyer or “cash condo buyer” website and reach out to that person. Be cautious and do y our homework, though, because you don’t always know who you’re getting when you do that.
Fortunately, we can help – we’re cash buyers with the funds available to buy a property fast – and yes, we even pay cash to buy Southern California condos in the winter!
How to Work with a Cash Buyer
When you do find a cash buyer, they’ll probably want to view your condo before giving you an offer. We can usually give you a ballpark estimate of what we can offer you in cash just from researching the area and the comparable properties, that way we don’t have to waste anyone’s time if it isn’t a good fit. There’s no obligation. You can accept the offer or not. No problem.
If you do choose to accept the offer then you just tell the cash buyer when you want to close and if they’re a professional company, they’ll make all the arrangements for you.
Be sure to ask if there are any commissions or fees to pay. (We don’t charge any but it’s good to know if others do.)
