There are a flurry of new services out there attempting to upend the traditional real estate agent model. Offer Pad, Open Door and Zillow Offer, just to name a few. They are exploding our mail boxes and TV advertising with compelling offers. We will buy your house for cash, eliminate the Realtor and make a seamless move to your next house. Sounds fantastic on the surface. Problem is that they will never offer you close to what the true market value of your home is. Granted it is more convenient but is it worth walking away with 15-20% less (even after paying the real estate commission) than what you could have received, just for the simplicity?
Like everything else in life, there is no free lunch. You must put in the effort to get the goods. The other thing to consider is the impact it is having on your poor neighbors. How would you feel if someone in your subdivision used one of these services and unloaded their house for 15% below market? It drags the value of your whole subdivision down. If you engage the services of a professional Realtor and work with us to get fully Certified upfront, together as a team we can craft a game plan to make the move reality without taking a haircut.
