Getting a cash bid for your home after going to a website and inputting basic information sounds easy and stress-free.
But there can be downsides to “instant offer” services.
INSTANT OFFERS MAY BENEFIT INVESTORS MORE THAN YOU
Investors who would buy your property want to make a profit. Some even intend to find a buyer willing to pay more right away. Why sell to an investor for less money than you could get otherwise?
THE OFFERS MAY NOT BE BASED ON ACCURATE DATA
These services sometimes use incomplete, misleading information. Texas REALTORS®, however, have access to true market comparisons and pricing data.
Have you done any of the following?
- Replaced bathroom fixtures
- Installed new floors
- Installed new kitchen countertops
- Replaced HVAC systems
“Instant offers” may not take those improvements into account. You need a thorough, in-person estimate of your home’s value.
