I can’t speak for all cash home buyers in Sacramento, but if you are looking to sell your house in Sacramento, you owe it to yourself to know all of the options and what motivates any buyer and what drives the sale of any house. It doesn’t really matter what side of the table you are on, what matters is the opportunity that you have as either the buyer or the seller. No matter what you do, the outcome will always be determined by the opportunity and whether there is enough for both sides of the equation that it makes sense?
The problem in residential real estate is that everyone believes that they are an expert. Even though everyone has access to the same information, the real question then becomes who has the skills and experience to decipher that information to make a difference in putting it all together when it comes to buying and selling a house in Sacramento?
The other problem with residential real estate in Sacramento are the numbers. Whether it is a buyers or sellers market the numbers are always going favor the house that is in the best condition. It may be hard to hear, but houses that need work are a burden on the buyers and the sellers until they can come to an understanding or agreement as to the value of the house after repairs are factored in.
There is no secret, in today’s real estate market buyers want move in ready. Banks and other mortgage providers want move in ready and of course sellers want to understand what all of that is going to “cost them”. I think that we can all agree that all sellers want to give as little concessions as they can to maximize their equity. What that really means is that sellers want to spend as little as possible and yet put the most amount of money back into their pocket when the sales finally closes. Who can blame them?
Certainly there is no mainstream conversation in real estate about how real estate investors in Sacramento, Stockton or Modesto buy houses directly from homeowners on a daily basis. In fact, that conversation is redirected as the conventional wisdom directs sellers towards real estate agents whether or not they they can provide a viable solution. So most sellers never hear about the We Buy Houses companies as an alternative because real estate agents have no incentive to push homeowners that want to sell their houses to cash home buyers.
It is why Sacramento cash home buyers are a bit obscured in the market as a viable option to buy houses. There are no national ad campaigns by an association of Cash Home Buyers that put real estate investors at the head of the line because we are all independent investment companies performing our own marketing.
So after swallowing hard and coming to terms with the condition of your house the next step is to come to terms to they type of buyer that will actually be interested in buying your house. There are a lot of things to consider when placing your home for sale and generally it is about 7 unknowns that keep homeowners from taking that leap to sell.
- How long will my home be on the market waiting for a qualified buyer?
- Does my house need too much work?
- How much will needed repairs cost?
- Can I sell my house and recover those cost when I sell?
- Will the buyer find something wrong with the house after closing and sue?
- Can I afford the commission if I deal with a Realtor?
- Can I just find a Buyer willing to pay cash?

Sacramento Cash home buyers will usually purchase homes as-is. As a seller, this means you do not have to worry about repairs before closing or any other additional expenses you were not planning on. There are some companies that do not require inspections which makes it a truly as-is transaction.
Sell My Sacramento House Fast with Easy Closings
Sacramento home buyers typically close faster than traditional home buyers, and usually in pay full in cash. Traditional home purchases usually require qualifications from banks, mortgage underwriting time, property inspection time and the buyer may not end up qualifying in the end. There are also normally no commissions paid to a buyer’s or seller’s agent which means thousands of dollars in savings. The usual commission is 3% per side, so if you sell your home for $200,000, you would have to pay $12,000 in commissions alone! Professional home buyers also may not charge transaction fees; if they do, they are extremely low in comparison to the commission or closing costs you would have to pay otherwise. They also provide mail-away closings which is a wonderful thing for out of state owners.
Sacramento cash home buyers are in it for the investment. They are not expecting to move into the home on the day of closing. Most home buyers will allow a move-out timeframe after closing to allow you to relocate at your own pace. This is extremely helpful, especially with such quick closing timeframes. Also, you may not even have to clean the home when you leave. You can simply pack your personal items and furniture you want to keep and leave the rest.
Sacramento home buyers provide certainty. There are no frustrating, middle-of-dinner phone calls asking if you are available to show your home. You don’t have to worry about leaving your home spotless every day before heading to work, just in case there is a showing while you’re gone. You don’t have to worry about possibly running into a buyer’s agent or their clients or dealing with them asking you questions that you really shouldn’t answer anyway. You also don’t have to worry about buyers arguing with you over which furniture you are taking and what you are leaving.
Little to No Risk
Selling to Sacramento Cash home buyer is extremely straight forward. They will lay out every step of the process and usually have shortened, very clear contracts that are simple as-is purchase agreements. You will also have lessened exposure to legal risks. You won’t have to worry about the buyer finding something you didn’t know you didn’t disclose or something they don’t like about the home or the neighborhood. Under most traditional real estate contracts, there is a potential for the buyer to sue you if they feel they didn’t get all of the information, or if they feel the facts were misconstrued. Professional home buyers already know the state of the property, and they are willing to take on that risk.
