The process of selling a house is by no means an easy one. You have to deal with a lot of issues and hiccups that would involve getting a lot of other parties involved including real estate agents, banks, scores of visitors to inspect the house etc. So, it understandably gets really frustrating having to deal with it.
However, the process can become a lot of easier, especially if you consider the option of an off market property investment. It doesn’t involve a lot of hassle, however, you might end up having to sell the house on a lower price which happens to be its biggest problem. We will still discuss the advantages from a seller’s perspective so that you can get a better idea as to whether or not this option works for you.
- First of all, you will end up avoiding a lot of hassle. You don’t have to bother getting your property listed, you don’t have to deal with the onslaught of people visiting and inspecting your house etc. So, it’s a cleaner, smoother process where you get to maintain most of your privacy. You don’t necessarily have to prepare your house by cleaning and maintaining it for the buyer, however, it does affect how much the buyer will be willing to pay then.
- There is a lot of convenience involved and no time restraints. You and the buyer can agree to wait till you find a replacement home, in the meantime, the seller is allowed to take their time to examine the property to make sure that they like it etc.
- You do not necessarily have to involve real-estate agents in the process, so you end up saving on their fees as well as the amount that would have gone for commission, so you save some money as well.
