How to Find a Reputable Real Estate Investor

Most homeowners looking to sell intend to choose a traditional real estate agent. However, property owners are seeing ads online and across town for investors who offer cash for homes. When homeowners looking to sell receive an offer from an investor, maybe one with the promise of a fast close and cash upfront, they become tempted. But before homeowners accept these offers, they should understand how the process differs from the typical transaction. Read on to learn more about selling your home to an investor and how to pick a reputable one. 

Reasons Homeowners Sell to Investors

While most people sell their property the traditional way, there are many cases these days that make selling a home to an investor far more ideal. At Authentic HomeBuyer, we’ve not only listed the reasons people choose to sell their home to us; we also have extensive experience in the following areas.

Inherited Home

If you’ve inherited a property from a family member but you don’t plan to live in the property for a variety of reasons, you won’t want it to collect dust. Not only can a vacant home invite vandalism, but if you sit on a property in a certain real estate market, you could get in trouble with capital gains taxes. Authentic HomeBuyer can help you alleviate this burden by making you a CASH offer on your unwanted, inherited home.

Relocating or Moving Out-of-State

When you’re called to relocate for a job or some other pressing matter, you normally do not have a lot of time to do so. Selling to an investor can be faster than waiting for the perfect buyer as many investors purchase homes as-is and close within 7 days!

Foreclosure

If you’re behind on payments and need to sell your property quickly, an investor like Authentic HomeBuyer might be able to help you. While there are numerous ways to avoid foreclosure, one of the best ways to stop foreclosure is to sell your property before the bank repossesses it. Authentic HomeBuyer has tons of experience sparing homeowners from foreclosure. We can help you make the right choice today!

Disrepair

If your home requires tons of major updates or repairs to regain an attractive appeal to buyers, it may be appealing to sell your home as-is to an investor. Authentic HomeBuyer can relieve homeowners of all the headaches caused by their dilapidated house. The company is willing to give property owners that qualify an offer within 24 hours, which means cash available and closing in one week! Imagine leaving all your home’s repairs behind and moving on with your life. Authentic HomeBuyer can turn this dream into reality.

Divorce

Divorce settlements require both splitting parties to divide their assets. Therefore, selling fast and dividing proceeds with the help of an experienced and trusted real estate investor like Authentic HomeBuyer is usually much easier and faster for both parties. We want those involved in a divorce to be able to focus on moving on in their lives.

How to Choose a Reputable Investor

Reputation

Before you go into business with a real estate investor or agent, always check their reputation first. It’s the only way to ensure that the agreements between you and them are legitimate business transactions. We hate to say it but there are a lot of bad people out there who want to intentionally scam others.

Here are some ways to check an investor’s reputation:

  • Check for proof of funds and prior deals closed
  • Ask around town and gather testimonials
  • Research what escrow company they use
  • Call the investor’s office and ask for a list of recent purchases.
  • Check their website to review their materials. If they don’t have a website, ask the investor directly if they have any materials that support their business claims.
  • Read reviews online. Most professional investors have some sort of online presence. If you can’t find anything about them, consider this a red flag.
  • Check the Better Business Bureau for warnings.
