Cash sales vs. the traditional way
There are many advantages to selling your property to a trustworthy cash buyer instead of through an agent.
Selling your Portland home the traditional way can be a time-consuming process. If you work with a typical buyer who is financing the purchase with a mortgage, closing the deal can take quite some time. Many steps are involved in the traditional way of selling a house, including appraisals, inspections, and securing financing. Plus, you have to pay a commission once the sale is completed.
A cash buyer, on the other hand, doesn’t need to secure financing to purchase your home. A reputable cash buyer can make a cash offer within 24 hours of visiting your home. Once you accept, you can close in as little as 2-3 days. This is because cash sales involve fewer steps and less paperwork than traditional sales, making the process much faster and more efficient — no commissions or fees involved!
The process of selling your house for cash in Oregon
Here are the steps you can expect:
1. Choose a reputable cash buyer
Many companies and individuals claim to be cash buyers, but it’s essential to do your research and work with a trustworthy buyer who has a proven track record of successful transactions.
At Columbia Redevelopment, we’ve been helping hundreds of homeowners across the Portland area. Find out what makes us different from other real estate investors in Oregon.
2. Contact the home investor
Once you’ve found a reputable cash buyer, contact them to express your interest in selling your house for cash.
The home investor will visit and evaluate the property. A reputable cash buyer will typically schedule a visit to your property to evaluate its condition and determine a fair market value.
3. The investor will make a cash offer
With our company, you can expect a cash offer within 24 hours of the visit. This offer is based on the current market value of the property.
4. Choose a closing date
If you accept the offer, you’ll decide on a closing date. With us, closing takes 2-3 days and there are never any closing fees, hidden costs, or agent commissions. This means you’ll receive the full cash offer amount without any deductions
