This can be a tough one in a lot of scenarios. When selling your home, the buyer will have a tendency to immediately start looking for ways to lower the offering price down. They will also probably work with a lawyer, who wants to help out the buyer, since they are paid when the purchase happens, so it’s in their best interest to make sure the sale is pushed, even at a lower price.
This is true for any housing market, even in Columbia or for that matter the entire State of SC. It can be frustrating but sadly it’s the truth. This can be even worse, if the house isn’t properly maintained or that you meant to remodel the kitchen, but needed to sell your house fast. These repairs that may be cheap and easy, come at the cost of time, that we don’t always have. That affects the price that the next potential homeowner is willing to pay because he or she needs to estimate that repair plus an amount for the unknown, which then lowers your offering’s pricing.
Then we also miss out on all those items that can help raise the value of our homes, such as remodeling the kitchen or bathroom. Upgrading the exterior to improve its curb appeal. Maybe you even consider adding an extension to your home if Columbia allows for those types of extra units or additions. All of these, with enough time, and potentially fewer resources can add value to your home for an optimal price. Even a simple paint job can really help up the amount you can ask for when it comes to selling your home.
That’s not always possible when the mindset is to ‘sell my house fast’. The rationale goes out the window, for whatever the reasoning is, and those items have to be put on hold. Unfortunately in these situations, you sometimes may not even be a desirable seller for those potential buyers, unless you find those that may be looking for a fixer-upper, as they call it in the industry, but those are a very special case of buyers. Those are the ones that are hunting for that type of property and are specifically looking for a deal to take over your home, repair it as necessary and upgrade the home for the lowest price possible to push and flip it. They already have a spreadsheet with ways to cut down on the price and tear you apart from the actual value of your home.
To make matters worse, they may not even have the courtesy to help you liquidate quickly, and still go through the long and arduous process of having a broker find, you, buy the home with a mortgage, have you go through escrow, and still have you spend a lot of time getting an amount that is below fair value. There’s also still the major issue, that even with this whole process, there are still multiple points during the sales period where the buyer can walk out, leaving you out of more time to handle whatever pressing issue that made you want to or need to sell the property fast and easy. This can happen even in Columbia and throughout the state of SC.
This is not something anyone should have to go through, especially if they have fallen under hard times, and some items are out of control. It does happen and there’s always a better solution than having to go through the above.
