Are You Ready To Sell Your Home And Give Away Most Of Your Equity?

I recently took some buyers around the cities of Kissimmee and Davenport. The buyers were looking for a mid-size home with pool between $280,000 and $315,000. I was surprised to see many yard signs of these types of companies where sellers receive a direct offer for the house.Basically seller go online and they can get an offer for their house after filling some basic information.

Since I have a background in engineering, I am very curious and I like to know how things work, then I requested an offer for my own home.

I searched the web and found one of the companies. The entire process took me only 7 minutes and was done in five steps. I only had to fill out few drop down boxes and click next at the bottom of the page and finally click send.

I received an email letting me know that my request had been received and that I should be receiving another email shortly with my offer. I have to tell you seller, these companies are not playing. I got my offer 85 minutes later. That is about one hour and half later.

Once I opened the email and the offer, I looked at it about three times to make sure I was looking right. The offer I received was for about 85% of the value of my home. In addition, the company charged me 7% for their services. I am not sure what services!

For the seller out there who need help selling a property, please consider working with a licensed Realtor as your first option. Look for other options as well and weigh each one against what are you getting or receiving.
