Understanding the Buyer
Professional property buyers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania typically close faster than traditional multi-family buyers, and usually pay full in cash. Traditional multi-family property purchases usually require qualifications from banks, mortgage underwriting time, property inspection time and the buyer may not end up qualifying in the end. There are also normally no commissions paid to a buyer’s or seller’s agent which means thousands of dollars in savings. Professional multi-family property buyers also may not charge transaction fees; if they do, they are extremely low in comparison to the commission or closing costs you would have to pay otherwise. They also provide mail-away closings which is a wonderful thing for out of state owners.
No Preparation Necessary
Professional property buyers in Pennsylvania will usually purchase sell multi-family real estate as-is. As a seller, this means you do not have to worry about repairs before closing or any other additional expenses you were not planning on. There are some companies that do not require inspections which makes it a truly as-is transaction.
Professional multi-family property buyers are in it for the investment. They are not expecting to move into the property on the day of closing. Most multi-family property buyers will allow a move-out timeframe after closing to allow your tenants to relocate at their own pace. This is extremely helpful, especially with such quick closing timeframes. Also, you may not even have to clean the multi-family property when you leave. Your tenants can simply pack their personal items and furniture they want to keep and leave the rest.
Selling to a professional multi-family property buyer is extremely straight forward. They will lay out every step of the process and usually have shortened, very clear contracts that are simple as-is purchase agreements. You will also have lessened exposure to legal risks. You won’t have to worry about the buyer finding something you didn’t know you didn’t disclose or something they don’t like about the property or the neighborhood. Under most traditional real estate contracts, there is a potential for the buyer to sue you if they feel they didn’t get all of the information, or if they feel the facts were misconstrued. Professional multi-family property buyers already know the state of the property, and they are willing to take on that risk.
