How long does it take to sell a home in various ways?

There are various ways to sell house fast. From getting a real estate agent to do the job to FSBO listing and selling to an investor, you have various options to take your pick from when you need to sell house fast. However, predicting with surety how long it will take to sell a house fast is difficult. It depends on several factors like the house’s location, condition and the price asked. The market condition also determines how fast you can sell a house since homes tend to sell faster in seller’s market than in buyer’s market. It can take anywhere from 2 to 3 months to sell homes. However, in seller’s market, a well priced home could sell within 10 to 21 days.

Let’s see what you can do to sell your house fast:

  • Hire a real estate agent: An agent can help you price the house right and get potential buyers through the door to help you get offers fast, thus letting you sell home fast. Though you may be tempted to eliminate the agent’s commission (6% of the sale price), you may find it difficult to sell your house fast, especially if you fix the price more than what the houses in that area usually sell for. Some statistics show that getting almost 20 qualified buyers through the door will let you get at least one offer and a deal can be finalized after you have 2-3 offers. Thus, you can expect to sell your house within 1 to 3 months.
  • FSBO: FSBOs are popular for cheap homes and constitute just 9% of homes sales in the US. If you are ready to do some legwork and want to save an agent’s commission, you can list your property together with its photos on different sites online. Though an FSBO gives you more control over price negotiations and you can keep a cash buyerlarge amount of the after-sale proceeds, you may not be able to sell home fast if you price it wrong or fail to make your listing attract the right buyers. In such cases, you may have to wait for 6 or even more months to sell your house.
  • Find cash house buyers: If getting quick cash is the prime reason you want to sell your house fast, finding cash home buyers is your best bet. If you want to sell house with tenants, or without repairs, such investors will take the property on as-is basis (no repairs or clean outs necessary) by giving you an instant cash offer. Homes with inheritance and probate problems, or foreclosed properties, or those mortgaged can also be sold this way. The entire process takes 1 to 2 days to be completed, making this the best way to sell your house fast.

Can't say enough about Ken and his team. This was the most seamless sale I made. I didn't have to deal with all the... nonsense that comes with selling your home. They bought my house as is, I didn't have to declutter and pay a broker commission. All in all great experience, will do business again.read more

Selling my property too Ken was the best thing I did. Although I was skeptical at first I soon found out how... professional he was. Even though my closing contract was not standard because of the pendemic situation. He followed through on time with all the contract terms as promised. Thank you Ken for your professionalism.Alfredo Gread more

Ken was referred to us by someone who had sold their home thru Ken last year. From the first meeting to the last... transaction, Ken and his team were professional, efficient, easy to work with, and above all.... caring. Each seller's situation is different, and Ken truly understands that. We were treated with respect each time.Since we were in a time crunch situation, selling our home with a cash offer from Ken was the best decision we could have made. We were perfectly okay with getting slightly less money for our home as compared to selling it via an agent. But if you consider the money saved on agent commissions (both buyers and sellers), closing costs, repair costs, attorney fees, and most important of all... time and headache, you can't beat the option to sell your home with a guaranteed cash offer from a reputable buyer like Ken.My wife and I were very pleased with our experience with Ken. If you are in the market to sell your home fast for a cash offer, I highly recommend giving Ken a call!Best of luck!Vishread more

Amazing experience! Ken was upfront, quick and got the deal done in no time. Having done a number of real estate... transactions this was by far the easiest and smoothest. I would unconditionally recommend him to anyone looking for an easy, quick and fair transaction.read more

Ken is a very professional individual from start to finish. As promised, he gave me a fair deal on my one of my... properties that was in rough shape. He was knowledgeable and responsive to my requests and as promised we didn't need to waste time with inspections and appraisals and we closed quickly. He made it painless as possible by having his crew handle the clean up. This was truly a quick and easy process but a professional individual. Thanks Ken!read more
