If you think about some of the most unpleasant experiences in life, selling your house ranks up there with getting wisdom teeth pulled, potty training toddlers, unclogging toilets, and paying taxes. In fact, according to a recent survey by Zillow, selling a home brought more than a third of Americans to tears, and many rated it as more stressful than planning a wedding or getting fired from a job.

Much of the stress around selling your house is due to the fact that so much of it is out of your control, and you spend so much time waiting. You wait for potential buyers to come to showings, you wait for offers to come in, you wait for buyers to respond to negotiations, you wait while inspections are conducted and loans are finalized.

The process is not easy to navigate either, which means that you will probably need to rely on a real estate agent to help you market your home, set a listing price, negotiate with buyers’ agents, navigate the legal and administrative red tape, and finalize your sale. If you don’t know your agent well, it can be hard to trust that they are always seeking your best interests.

You may not know that there is another way. But at Express Homebuyers, we buy houses in Northern Virginia without all the hassle of listing, marketing, and negotiating. We pay you in cash, usually within seven days. If you live in Northern Virginia and are thinking, “I need to sell my house fast,” we might be the right option for you.

Who Can Benefit from Selling Their Home for Cash

For some people, the traditional home selling process makes sense, but for other situations, it doesn’t. In our years of working in real estate, we have encountered many people who needed to sell their houses quickly but felt trapped in the traditional process. We are offering another option. Selling your house for cash might make sense for you if:

  • You don’t have time to wait weeks or months to close on a home
  • You are going through a divorce
  • Your home is about to go into foreclosure
  • You are in the process of declaring bankruptcy
  • You don’t have cash to make needed home renovations
  • You have inherited a property you want to get rid of
  • You have a rental property you want to sell
  • You are currently out of work
  • You don’t want the stress and hassle of a traditional home sale
  • You’ve ever thought, “I need to sell my house in Virginia fast.”

Why Sell My House in Northern Virginia for Cash?

Maybe you have never considered selling your home for cash and are wondering why it might be a worthwhile option. Right now, the housing market in Northern Virginia is growing and benefiting sellers. So why consider selling fast?

We recognize that there are people who love doing home repairs and renovations, who enjoy haggling over prices, and who feel confident navigating the home selling process. However, for most of us, that is a daunting prospect, and for many people, the hassle of listing a home isn’t worth the potential benefits.

Avoid These Steps

Here’s what you can avoid when you sell your home for cash in Northern Virginia:

Finding a Realtor

You don’t need a realtor to sell your home to Express Homebuyers. There is no need for someone to help you stage and market your home, negotiate offers, and arrange contracts. It’s as simple as reaching out for a free consultation and deciding whether to accept our cash offer. That means you’ll save yourself the realtor commission as well.

Making Repairs or Renovations

We will buy your house as-is. That means you don’t need to renovate that ‘90s bathroom or replace broken blinds. You can skip the caulking and the pressure washing. Does your carpet have unsightly stains? No worries; we will take care of it.

Staging Your Home

When you get ready to sell your home the traditional way, you have to prep it for pictures and showings. When you sell your home to Express Homebuyers, there’s no need to make it look like a home design catalog. You don’t need to rearrange furniture and update your decor. There’s no need to rent a storage unit to make your house look clean and empty. You don’t need to paint or even dust if you don’t want to.

While curb appeal matters when potential buyers are coming to look at your home, it isn’t something you need to stress about when you sell your home for cash. It’s alright if your flowerbeds have weeds or if your front walkway is cracked. You don’t need to spend a fortune buying new plants or replacing your mulch. Think of the money, work, and time you can save when you don’t have to stage a home!

Waiting and Waiting

If you want to go the traditional route to sell your home, be prepared to wait. You will wait for your home to get listed and for prospective buyers to reach out. You will wait for people to arrive for showings. You will wait for offers to come in. Once you get an offer, you’ll wait for buyers to respond to negotiations, you’ll wait for inspections, and you’ll wait while all the financing and paperwork are finalized.

This is not the case when you sell to Express Homebuyers. We buy houses in Northern Virginia in an average of seven days, but you have full control over your closing timeline. You don’t have to wait; you can sell your house on schedule.

Cleaning Before You Move

If you are looking to sell your house fast, probably the last thing you need is the stress of trying to deep clean a house before you move or transfer ownership. When you sell your house for cash, you don’t need to clean or replace carpets, scrub bathrooms, dust baseboards, or polish appliances.

With a traditional home sale, you might spend days after moving out the last of your boxes getting the house ready for its next owners. Or if you don’t have the energy for that, you might spend hundreds of dollars hiring someone else to do the deep cleaning for you. Save yourself the hassle, and just close the front door behind you. We will take care of everything else.

Will I Lose Money Selling My House for Cash?

OK, so you’re thinking, “I need to sell my house fast in Northern Virginia, but won’t I lose money if I sell it for cash?” This is one of the most common questions we get asked. At Express Homebuyers we pride ourselves on our honesty and transparency; we aren’t trying to scam anyone or prey on potential sellers that are in a vulnerable position.

So here’s the truth—the offer we give you may be lower than market value. We are repairing, renovating, and cleaning the house so you don’t have to, so the condition of your home and the amount of work required will impact your offer amount.

However, you will be skipping all of the traditional out-of-pocket expenses, which means that the offer amount may likely end up closer than you think to the amount you will get from a traditional sale, and the process will be fast and easy. Here are some costs you’ll save by selling directly to Express Homebuyers:

Realtor commission fees

The seller generally pays both the seller’s and buyer’s realtor fees, which have historically been about 6% of the selling price of the home. The median price of a Northern Virginia home is $650,000, meaning that you would owe $39,000 in realtor commission fees. Ouch!

Landscaping renovations

If you want to sell your home for top dollar, you need to make a good first impression, starting with curb appeal. Sprucing up landscaping isn’t cheap, though. You’ll save money when you skip buying new plants and mulch and don’t have to rent that pressure washer to get the sidewalks looking good.

Repairs and renovations

This varies from home to home, but if your home requires repair, the upfront costs will add up quickly. And even if you renovate or make the repairs, there are no guarantees that it will increase the price you can get for your home.

repairs and renovations cost

Photos

Homes get more offers and sell quicker when they have high-quality photos to go with their online listing. That means paying more money to hire a professional photographer for your home.

Staging decor

Sometimes, realtors will have furniture or decor to borrow to help sell your home, but often sellers end up buying new tablecloths, vases, plants, window coverings, or rugs to help stage their home. They hope this will help fetch a higher price, but the costs add up.

Cleaning costs

You can spend hours or even days deep cleaning your home before you list and show it, and then hours cleaning it again after you move out. Or you can pay to have it professionally cleaned. Either way it will cost you in time or money.

Fixing issues found in the inspection

Once your home goes under contract, the prospective buyers will have an inspector come look at your home and identify potential problems. They will look at the age of your HVAC system, any structural issues, and potential pest problems. If they find any issues, you will likely have to pay to fix them or lower the price of your home to compensate.

Paying a mortgage while you wait

If you are selling a rental unit, a property you inherited, or a second home, or if you’ve already moved, you need to consider that you will continue to pay a mortgage while you wait for your home to sell. That’s money you lose every month you are waiting.

You know the saying “time is money?” That certainly applies here. Your time has a cost, and your sanity matters. When you sell your home for cash, you will save yourself countless hours of work, weeks of waiting, and the headache and stress of listing a home the traditional way.

How Does Express Homebuyers Determine My Cash Offer?

As we said, we want to be as transparent as possible, so here is exactly what goes into determining the cash offer we make on your home:

express homebuyers cash offers

Your Home Size

We will take into consideration the square footage of your house as well as the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, and general layout. We will also consider your lot size.

The Age and Condition of Your Home

The age of your home and the date of the most recent renovation will play into your offer. We will also consider the age and condition of your roof and HVAC systems. We will assess whether the home needs any major structural repairs.

The Location of Your Home

Is your home in a desirable neighborhood? What are the local schools like? Are there parks, libraries, or pools nearby? Is your home next to a major road or train tracks? How close are local amenities?

Current Market Trends

We will consider both local and national market trends when creating your cash offer. We know that the housing market in Northern Virginia is expanding and favors sellers. We will take that into account. We know the market and the cities of Northern Virginia inside and out. After all, this is our home turf. We will give you an offer that reflects the desirability of the area.

Why Choose Express Homebuyers?
