Don't Get Trapped by These Common Home Selling Misconceptions

Are you considering selling your home? It's natural to have some misconceptions about the home-selling process, but don't let these misconceptions trap you into a situation that's not right for you. Here are some common misconceptions about selling your home that you should be aware of:

You HAVE to sell your home on the MLS with a licensed realtor.

While many people choose to list their home on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) with a licensed realtor, it's not the only option. Real estate investors like Wiebe Homes will buy your house without you having to go through the hassle of listing your home. Working with a real estate investor can be a great option if you're looking for a quick sale without the need to make any repairs or updates to your home. You'll also avoid paying realtor commissions and closing costs. Not coincidentally, we ARE licensed realtors in addition to real estate investors!

Selling your house could take 1-3 months.

While it's true that selling a home traditionally can take 1-3 months or even longer, Wiebe Homes can purchase your home in 14 days or less! This allows our sellers to access the equity in their home immediately instead of waiting months. If you need to sell your home quickly, working with a real estate investor may be the best option for you.

Sellers will get more money listing their home on the MLS.

Many sellers assume that they'll get the most money for their home by listing it on the MLS with a licensed realtor. However, this isn't always the case. If your house is in great shape, you may be able to get more money if you list your home with a good realtor. However, if your home is in need of serious repairs or updates, or speed is an important factor, then it may be worth looking at Wiebe Homes. Once you factor in not having to spend money on repairs, realtor commissions, closing costs, and the cost of holding onto your home for several months while it's on the market, Wiebe Homes may actually net you more money!

Selling your home will always be stressful – and showings are unavoidable.

If the thought of having many people showing up to view your home at all hours stresses you out, you'll be happy to know that there's an alternative. With Wiebe Homes, you can receive a cash offer after one appointment and cut down on routine disruptions from showings. You won't have to worry about staging your home or keeping it clean and tidy for potential buyers. This can be a great option if you want to sell your home quickly and easily without the stress of a traditional home sale.

In conclusion, if you're thinking about selling your home, it's important to consider all of your options. Don't get trapped by common misconceptions about the home-selling process. Whether you choose to list your home on the MLS with a traditional realtor or work with a real estate investor like Wiebe Homes, make sure you choose the option that's right for you and your unique situation.
