The Honest Truth: What is Wholesale?

What do those “We Buy Houses” companies do?

Let’s pull back the curtain on the real estate market and talk about the difference between retail and wholesale home sales.

You may be asking yourself “Who will pay cash for my house?” “How do I sell a house quickly?” “Who buys homes for cash?”

You’re probably familiar with retail real estate.

If you’ve ever seen a FOR SALE sign in front of a house, gone to an open house, or browsed the MLS online, you have participated in the retail market for real estate.

Retail involves using a Realtor to act as your agent in the process. Bypassing the Realtor, individuals can also become their own agent. This is called “For Sale By Owner” (or FSBO).

When a homeowner uses a Realtor, the house goes “on the market.” Repairs are made, a price is chosen, it is “listed” online and often in the newspaper. Going this route also means that the homeowner will have showings. These can be “open houses” or privately scheduled events, but there will be strangers coming through the house and the homeowner is encouraged to not be present.

Other headaches in the retail home selling process include negotiations on price, inspections, remedy requests, and delays with closing while the buyer tries to get financing.

Wholesale Skips All of These Hassles

A homeowner who choses to sell wholesale will not have to do repairs, will not involve an agent or Realtor, will not have to do showings to strangers. The advantages are many, including:

  • No repairs, no cleaning, no money out of your pocket.
  • No strangers looking at your house while you are gone.
  • The sale happens on your schedule.
  • No middle-man taking a cut of your profit.
  • We pay closing costs – not you!
  • We have CASH – no financing – so the sale will happen when you are ready.

According to the Washington Post, you are a good candidate for wholesale

If you have a home that needs major work and you don’t have the time or desire to deal with tire kicking home shoppers, home inspectors and contingencies of all sorts, then these guys might be worth considering.

What Realtors Won’t Tell You About Selling Your House

Not every house needs a real estate agent.

In fact, for many people selling with a realtor is too much: too much money out of pocket, too much time, too much stress, too much scheduling.

Many people do use a real estate agent. You have probably seen the signs “For Sale By Owner,” but did you know there is a THIRD way that is much simpler, faster, and easier?

What if I told you that with one phone call, you can meet with someone and begin selling your house without any hassles? Well, you can! This is the secret the real estate agents don’t want you to know. Upward Home Solutions is your local, friendly homebuyer in the Columbus area.

How Does It Work?

It’s very simple. Tim will meet with you and give you a fair CASH offer that day. If you like the offer, Tim will walk you through the next steps. The sale will be on your schedule, on your terms, and you won’t need to spend a dime.

Every House and Every Situation Is Unique

We know every situation is unique. Maybe you want to find a new place to live before selling the house. It’s no trouble to delay the closing for a month or two. Perhaps the house is occupied by a renter or deadbeat family member. We’ve dealt with these situations before and we can help you. Maybe there are property taxes that haven’t been paid. Don’t worry! We will take care of everything. 

Here’s what you DON’T have to do: clean, repair, pay the property taxes, paint, or answer calls asking for showings.

Simple, Fair, Fast

When it comes time to sell your used car, there are lots of options: trade it in at the dealership, sell to a dealership, put up a sign in your yard or advertise on Craigslist. But all of those options take time and energy. 

My dad recently sold his car online. After one quick phone call, he had an awesome cash offer and they came to his house to haul the car away. My dad was so happy. No more car insurance, license fees, or oil changes for a car he was hardly driving; and the cash put a big smile on his face. Plus, Dad didn’t have the stress of trying to sell it himself or haggle a price at the dealership.

What Would You Do?

What would you do if you didn’t have to worry about that old house? Would you have the freedom to travel? Or maybe you would downsize to something that better meets your needs. Perhaps you would buy the car of your dreams and still have money left to help your family.
