Just like homeowners, Cash House Buyers in Sacramento have different Motivations when purchasing a house.
When you are selling your house for cash in Sacramento the why you are selling… your motivation and goals for selling are the most important criteria to remember. Keep in mind that most buyers do NOT pay cash and that the majority of would be buyers in any market are going to require a loan to purchase your house.
With that said, the advantage of a cash buyer in Sacramento is that you don’t need to wait for a bank to approve, buyers to qualify and any inspections to be made.
If you want to attract and get of top of market dollar (which requires having the nicest house on the block) and you are prepared to spend thousands of dollars in repairs, improvements and updates… then the short answer is yes. By all means fix the house so that it can fetch top dollar, but be aware that cash buyers are not going to be in the majority.
But, if you don’t have the time or money to make the necessary repairs and/or improvements to the house, the answer is really a simple NO. There is no reason to make repairs to your house because the RIGHT cash buyer is not going to ask you to make repairs. We Buy Houses in Sacramento in any condition… No Inspections, No Contingencies and No Repairs Whatsoever.
As local cash house buyers in Sacramento CA we work with local home owners who need to sell their houses fast. The home owners we work with come to us with all kinds of reasons for needing to sell fast.
In a majority of cases the houses in question are need of repair and in most cases the homeowners just don’t have the time or money to make the repairs needed to be able to sell it fast on the open market with a real estate agent.
But aside from all of that, the “official” reason we’ll buy a house in Sacramento in any condition is that we’re local real estate investors and our business model requires that we take the risk to purchase a house in its current as-is condition.
Why Cash for House Buyers In Sacramento CA Will Buy A House “As-Is”
Since we buy houses with cash and don’t need to get bank approval… we have the flexibility to buy local Sacramento houses in any condition. That means we will not order any inspections… zero for termites, plumbing, electrical, roofing, the foundation. None whatsoever.
The truth is traditional banks won’t finance a house if it’s in need of repair and don’t even know how to evaluate a property that is.
Banks see it as a risk and won’t lend on the normal “fixer upper” house.
That leaves a lot of home owners in our area without a good option to sell the house because 95% of the traditional buyer pool has to get a loan to buy a house and part of that qualification process is the inspection of the house.
As a percentage, 100% of banks and mortgage companies require an inspection and appraisal of the house in question and they will require any and all repairs to be made prior to closing.
To compound the issue, most traditional home buyers, will not make an offer on a house that they feel has not been maintained and will simply move on to the next property. Most home buyers want to move into a house that does not need any repairs.
