iBuyer versus we buy houses cash Chandler Arizona

What Is An iBuyer

An iBuyer is a company with considerable financial resources that uses an algorithm to determine the cost of houses and make offers based on this algorithm. The corporate iBuyer decides whether your home is worth buying and also whether it will be easy to sell. They will charge service fees for their work as well as reduce the overall price to your home based on repairs needed. The goal is to make minor repairs to your home and relist on the MLS after those repairs are completed.

Selling To An iBuyer

Many iBuyers will email you an offer within 24 hours of filling out an online form. The iBuyer will then come to inspect your home and will usually reduce the offer based on the cost of the repairs for your home. They will do those repairs before relisting your home for sale. iBuyers like agents charge service fees and/or commissions for the work that they will perform.

These companies are the industry leaders thus far within the field of iBuyers.

  • Opendoor
  • Offerpad
  • Zillow Instant Offers
  • Knock
  • 72Sold
  • Redfin Now
Opendoor and Offerpad are by far the most well known iBuyers across the United States. Opendoor and Offerpad reviews will vary depending on where you find your data.

What Is A Local Cash Investor?

You have definitely seen a few “We buy Houses Cash” signs on the side of the road. Or you have heard about the “greedy” investor that wants to give you a low ball offer. There are a lot of those companies so please beware. Some of these ‘We Buy Houses’ cash investors do not care about you and your situation. They have a bottom line they need to meet and that’s where they focus. The biggest problem with local cash investors is vetting them or trusting them. You should verify that they have a website. You want to make sure they can close the deal. Ask them questions like how many properties do you purchase each year? Look for, or ask testimonials, from people they have worked with and get a feeling for how they dealt with the seller.

Selling To A Local Cash Investor

If you find a reputable local cash investor they should be creative and have many ways they can help you aside from just a quick CASH deal. When you are selling your home it doesn’t necessarily matter if they offer you cash versus a loan as long as you get the money wired into your account on the closing date, it is cash to you. The value in the cash offer comes with no appraisals, maybe no inspection, and the fact that they should be able to close quickly. A good local investor should have many offers to help you depending on your personal situation. Maybe they can help you with moving expenses or they can buy your property ‘subject to’ your existing mortgage and help save you from foreclosure.
