Beware of Wolves posing as investors wanting to purchase your home!

 Recently you may have had someone contact you offering to purchase your home. They don’t want you to talk to a Realtor, but want you to deal directly with them. They promise to purchase your home for cash so you can move on with your life. The only concern with these offers are that they are usually way under the actual value of your home. The would be predator will try to justify there offer, by convincing you of how much you are saving. You don’t have to pay a real estate commission, you don’t have to spend any money on fixing up your home. You don’t have to wait to find a buyer so you are saving monthly mortgage payments. These and other convincing arguments are used to try and convince you to sell your home to them. If you are tempted to fall for this ploy, do yourself a favor, contact a local Realtor that you trust and have them give you an idea of what your home would sell for in the current market. Have them help you run the numbers to see if it makes sense to you. Most of the time you will find that you can sell your home for a lot more money than you are being offered for your home and if you are willing to be patient for a couple of months you will get your home sold and you can move on with your life. The average sale on your home will cost you about 7% of the contract price. That is 6 % for the real estate commission and about 1% for the title fees and insurance. Of course if you don’t care about the equity you have in your home and you hate Realtor’s, then go ahead and sell it to an investor. By the way you might ask a Realtor if they have an investor who would be interested in purchasing your home 20% below market value. Chance are they do and they would be happy to do the paper work for you. They might even want to purchase your home themselves.
