Discussing three options sellers have in today’s market.
These days, sellers often ask us, “What’s my best option to get my home sold?” In today’s market, you really have three routes you could take: the iBuying route, the retail route, and the wholesale route. Today I’ll take about each of these options in more detail:
- iBuyers. Many Atlanta homes in lower price points are being listed by iBuyer companies who previously purchased them from buyers. iBuying can be a good option, but in today’s low-inventory market, it probably won’t get you your maximum price.
- Retail. If you’re looking to get the best price, retail is the route I’d consider going. Due to low inventory, retail outweighs iBuyers in terms of price. A few years ago, iBuyers could get sellers pretty close to retail prices, but because inventory is so low, prices have increased even further.
- Wholesale. If you don’t have the funds, iBuyers aren’t necessarily going to make offers on your home because there’s simply too much to do. However, wholesalers looking to buy and hold or flip properties are paying margins that are pretty close to retail prices. Depending on your situation, you may find that the wholesale route is a viable option because it will get you the furthest down the road in the shortest amount of time.
If you have any questions about these three options for selling your home, don’t hesitate to give us a call or send an email. We can walk you through each one in more detail to find the one that makes the most sense for you.
