Sell with Sundae to get the best price for your home. It’s as simple as these 5 steps.

When you need your house sold, you’ve got more options than ever — from sophisticated iBuyers to tattered side-of-the-road “we buy houses for cash sign operations. But what if you want to sell your home quickly and also get top dollar? Sounds too good to be true? It’s not. It’s Sundae.

Sundae connects homeowners who need to move their property quickly with investors who are eager to buy quickly. And it’s not just a connection to one investor. Sundae puts your property in front of multiple investors to attract multiple bids, ensuring that you get the best price for your home from investors who are motivated to move quickly. And it’s all done within the safety of the Sundae system that puts a priority on protecting the seller.

No matter what your reason for needing to offload your home — whether it’s due to a divorce, death in the family, emergency relocation, inheritance, or simply that you’re tired of mowing the lawn and fixing leaks — here’s how the Sundae selling process will work in your favor as the seller.

5 simple steps to selling your house as-is through using Sundae

Take whatever you know about selling a house the traditional way through a real estate agent, which often involves complicated home updates and renovations, a deep clean, expensive staging, and other time-consuming steps, and toss it right out the window.

And those sometimes predatory or deceptive practices by some wholesalers and others who prey on homeowners? You won’t find any of that here. At Sundae, we make things easy on you as the seller, while delivering competitive offers that you are free to accept or reject.

1. Get in touch

Reach out to one of Sundae’s trusted team members. You can do this by filling out Sundae’s online form, by calling the company’s toll free number 1-800-214-4426, or by emailing [email protected].

2. Complete a home visit

Next, you’ll complete a brief home visit with one of Sundae’s Market experts. During this meeting, you’ll share your circumstances and needs with Sundae around selling your home. You’ll also have a chance to go over next steps and get any questions you have answered. You may choose to sign a marketplace agreement at this stage to get your house on the Sundae marketplace. Keep in mind, you never have to accept an offer.

3. List on Sundae

After you sign the agreement as well as any necessary property disclosures, Sundae creates a property profile for you with photos, 3D tours, home inspection reports, and signed disclosures. Doing the inspection before the sale offers transparency to potential buyers and allows you to sell faster in many instances, and it’s all arranged by Sundae. This thorough listing will be instantly marketed to hundreds of local investors, so you get the highest price without the hassle of showings. You’ll never have to communicate with any of the investors, either. That’s all handled by the Sundae team.

4. Review offers and accept the one that works for you

With no obligation to accept, you’ll receive multiple cash offers, usually within four business days after your property goes live on the marketplace. If you get an offer you like, then it’s on to the final step.

5. Close on the sale

After you accept an offer, Sundae can close on the property in as little as 10 days. However, you have the option to extend that up to 60 days. In the meantime, if you need money fast, you may be eligible for up to a $10,000 cash advance as the seller.

A customer focused solution

The priority of protecting the homeowner in these types of transactions has been part of the Sundae DNA ever since founders Josh Stech and Andrew Swain came up with the idea in late 2014. They saw the often predatory behavior that exists in the as-is sale side of the real estate market and set out to create a system that would protect sellers, while offering investors easy access to properties. That drive to protect homeowners, especially those who need to sell quickly due to a stressful time in their life, is the force behind the Sundae mission. Streamline the sale of your home or the next investment opportunity on Sundae’s Marketplace.
