I was listening to all these realtors on television who wanted to buy your house for cash and you didn’t need to clean it, repair anything, or pay any fees.
I was sure there was a catch, but I had to call.
I had been trying to sell my house for two years, and no one was buying. I called the realtor who had placed the ad and asked him questions. He said they paid top dollar for any house. They would fix the house up and sell it. That was where they made their profit. The realtor I was working with had given my house a value I thought was high, and she had lowered it several times. I thought my house was perfect, but apparently the realtor didn’t. After two years, I thought they have sold my house. I called the realtor and asked if she could sell my house for cash? She said she wouldn’t get paid enough if she did that, and I told her I wanted to cancel our contract. As soon as I had the cancelled contract, I called the realtor, who was offering to buy my house. He came in and looked at my house and started asking a lot of questions about the house. By the time he was done, he made an offer that was substantially less that what the realtor quoted, but more than what she was getting ready to drop the price to. I accepted the realtor’s offer and planned to move in with my daughter. She had built an in-law suite for me, and most of my furniture would fit. What wouldn’t fit in my new home was going to be donated to charity.
