You can't help but be aware of all of the new companies that will guarantee to buy your home without ever showing it. It seems too good to be true. Why wouldn't everyone want to do this? There is one primary answer: you should expect to net 10-25% less on the sale of your home if you select this option. The guaranteed offer from the company is frequently below the current market value of your home. If you accept, they will typically do an inspection, and then ask for a reduction in price due to the repairs that need to be made. In addition to the low sales price and repair reduction, you also have transaction fees that range from 7-13%.  They will then do some minor clean-up and put your home back for sale at or above the full market value. I have researched company websites and public reviews, and while you do see some satisfied sellers, these are mainly people that put an extremely high value on making the experience easy and fast, without concern for maximizing their net proceeds from the sale. There was also a high number of bad reviews from buyers purchasing homes from these companies. I don't want to presume that there is never a time when this might be a good option for a seller, but I do know that we helped 110 clients buy or sell last year, and we have 102 4 or 5-star reviews at this public website. By the way, if you know someone that might want to sell their home below market value, please reply to this note - asking for a friend. :)
