Want to sell your house but it needs repairs? Don’t sell for bottom dollar! Contact John

Many people think that they have to sell for bottom dollar when their house needs some fixing up. Truth is, if the house is habitable you can sell for much higher than what most investors who fix up old houses will pay.

John pays fair prices for houses like this making it a win-win-win. A win for you because you sell for the most money. A win for John, because it’s a house he gets to buy. And a winner for the new resident.

How? He specializes in buying houses and can buy them in several ways. Cash is usually not one of them because he can’t pay you the highest price for your house. If you are open to other creative way of selling where you get the most CASH out of the sale with little hassle, then you owe it to yourself to contact him using the contact form

Staging In Order To Sell Your House Quickly And For Top Dollar

Staging is the art of setting up your home to sell using furniture, decorations, etc to make the home more appealing to buyers. Think model homes. When you walk into a model home, it’s got furniture, picture frames, lamps, dishes, tables and even towels in the kitchens and baths. The idea is to give the buyers an impression of their potential future home will look like with stuff in them.

Some people say staging is worth the extra cost. Others say otherwise. For me, I believe it helps houses that are lacking in custom amenities and design in a market where there is high competition.

For instance a house with a custom kitchen with granite countertops, nice cabinets, and high end stainless steel appliances and with nice hardwood or tile floors as well as bathrooms with a designer feel (bowl sinks, upper tier fixtures, custom tiles in the bath and showers) may not need the staging effort. But a plain home with standard looking cabinets, appliances, and fixtures, linoleum tiles, basic white bathrooms…that one may need help with appeal.

There may be a staging company in your area that already have the deco on hand in be able to move them in and prep the home for you. You may benefit from removing your stuff and putting in nicely placed and themed furniture and decorations. I don’t like to see evidence of other people living in a home I’m interested in. Model homes give your buyers a vision of what your house can be like if they owned it. They can sit in the chairs or sofas and imagine themselves “living” in the house as if it was theirs.

You can used your own things as well if you have to stay in the home. Simple things like getting rid of clutter, replacing linens and adding or removing decorative pieces can make a huge difference on the impression you house leaves on prospective buyers. A carpet cleaning, paint touch, and general freshening up can make a big difference. If you have a budget of a few hundred or couple thousand dollars, check out Craigslist for nice furniture for sale. You can refurnish an entire home on the cheap and you may even want to keep the furniture or offer throwing in the furniture as an incentive to your buyers.

In addition to finding a staging company on your own, you can ask your Realtor if they know of a company. A Realtor who lists many homes for sale is a great resource because they can have other great ideas that can help you sell your home for top dollar. An agent who lists means they work with sellers to help them sell their home. At the other end of the spectrum are buyers’ agents who mainly find people to sell homes to. A good listing agent will not only provide advice on how to sell your home but also market your home aggressively to get it sold. Not all Realtors are the same.

Once you’ve decided on staging, get the house filled up and let the staging sell your house.

Benefits of selling to John Gamboa

If your house is in need of repair it is sometimes tough to get buyers who can close quickly. Most first time home buyers like the lower price but can get scared away if something about your home looks too daunting to fix. A lot of investors come in with really low cash offers. John Gamboa can offer CASH, but can pay closer to fair market value.

Why sell to me instead of going through a realtor? One of the best reasons is because of the 3% or higher commission that you’ll be charged to list and get you’re house sold.

There are two sides to a transaction, the sell and the buy side. Both sides get paid commissions when a house is sold. Brokers and Agents represent the buyer and the seller. If the listing agent (the agent who is helping you, the seller) finds a buyer or the buyer goes directly to them, there is still a buy side commission. Basically the broker/agent gets 2 commissions.

Commissions paid out to them is money out of your pocket. If you sell to John, you don’ t pay commissions because he is not a Realtor, John is a home buyer, which can mean more CASH in your pocket.

Also, you don’t have to make any repairs to your home or have to dump out the garbage. John buys houses AS IS.

If you think he can help you and you need to sell your home, please consider selling to John Gamboa.
