Home Buyers in Oakland. You’re beginning the process to sell your home, but you don’t know which avenues to take. You can do the traditional route where you sell with a realtor, or you can go with us – an all-cash buyer. It’s dependent on the situation you’re in and if you need to get your money sooner, or later. 

There are benefits to both routes, but what we want to educate you on is which route is better for you and your family.

In this article, we will be showing you some questions you should ask your family and yourself – before you begin selling your Oakland home.

Questions Before Selling Your Oakland Home

  1. Do You Need To Have Repairs?

When you begin the home selling process with a realtor, you need to get an inspection done before you can list your property on the MLS. This is legally binding, as well as a big vote of confidence for any potential buyer to purchase your Oakland home. 

If repairs are needed, they can range from a few minor dings and dents to major repairs such as HVAC, insulation, electrical, and plumbing. Minor repairs are easily fixed and can be done with some good ol’ fashion elbow grease and plaster. However, when you need to call in professionals to get work done – it will cost you a pretty penny.

Remodeling a home just to sell it is also very foolhardy. Remodeling only brings back 80% of its cost-to-value – and adding things such as a pool or spa might add extra value, but not so much so if you’re looking to sell your home immediately.

With an all-cash buyer (like us) we will buy your Oakland home, as-is. No matter what condition it is in, we will make you the best offer in the entirety of the Bay Area.

  1. What Is Your Timeline?

It takes on average 3 to 6 months to sell your Oakland property on the MLS. Why does it take so long? Firstly, because your realtor needs to market your home, and secondly – potential buyers want to make sure they get the home of their dreams, for the best price.

If you need money quickly from the liquidation of your home – selling with a realtor would be a bad idea. If you can take the time to wait to get the most money out of your home, working with a realtor is a great idea. It all depends on your timeline.

For us, we can give you an offer within 24-48 hours of walking through your home. We can also close in as little as a week – which means that you can get your cash in hand before your next mortgage payment.

  1. Are You Looking For More Money in The Short Term or Long Term?

Money comes and goes. The longer you have your Oakland home, the more it appreciates. The quicker you sell your Oakland home, the more you have in your pockets to invest or to save. 

If you’re going long-term, make sure you maintain your Oakland home, and by the time you sell it – you can get the most amount of money for it.

If you’re going short-term, you can still maintain your Oakland home, but you don’t need to be as careful. You’ll still be getting a great offer from us, and you will have cash in hand to do whatever you want with.
