Why Inland Empire homeowners sell with Sundae

If you want to sell your house fast in Inland Empire, you might first go to a traditional real estate agent. However, it can take a lot of time and money to get your property market-ready and list on Multiple Listing Service (MLS) to get the best price. You may also get contacted by a cash buyer in your market. However, when you work with one cash buyer, you only get one offer, oftentimes a low-ball offer with predatory bait and switch tactics.

With Sundae, you can sell your house fast and get a competitive price by auctioning your property to a large pool of local Inland Empire real estate investors without repairs or open houses, pay no fees to Sundae, and receive your top offer with no obligation to accept.

Risks to selling your house fast

Selling a house with speed does come with potential risk. It can be scary if you don’t know what to expect going into this process. Luckily there are ways to mitigate these problems when you know what risks exist.

  • Overpricing your house. There’s a fine line between a fair price, underpricing, and overpricing a house. Of these options, the slowest way to sell your house is to overprice it. It will likely sit longer until the price is reduced to market value.Without a background in real estate, it can be hard to price your house fairly. Sundae’s Market Experts evaluate your home and help you price it appropriately to sell quickly on our marketplace.
  • Being approached by scammers. Some people in the real estate space use predatory tactics like the bait-and-switch to get your attention. They lead with a high offer, then knock off thousands of dollars for the condition of your home.Sundae’s real estate investors know what they’re getting into when they place an offer. We often provide photos, an inspection report, and other items to give full transparency. Plus, our large buyer pool of over 20,000 increases your odds of competitive offers.
  • Accepting a low-ball offer. It’s easy to get tempted into selling after getting your first offer, but without comparing offers you won’t know for sure if you’re getting the best price. Sundae's marketplace gives you a chance to receive multiple offers and get presented with the highest offer. That way, you can accept or walk away knowing that you have options at different price points.

Compare multiple offers for your house on your timeline

You deserve to have choices when you sell your house. Just because you receive one offer from a potential buyer doesn’t guarantee that it’s the best you can do. You need to explore your options.

Sundae’s marketplace’s latest data shows that sellers average 22 offers. This increases your odds of getting an offer that stands out to you and helps you maximize your profit potential. Since investors are competing with one another for your business, they’re incentivized to put their best offer first. It may even help you get more than you asked for in the first place.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the fastest way to sell a house that needs work?

It's important to be aware of the various options you have for selling your home. Selling on or off the market is the first decision you must make.

When you sell your home "on-market," you work with a conventional real estate agent and list it on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Your home will be promoted to potential purchasers through the local MLS. These buyers are typically people or families that plan to occupy your home. Because of this, they frequently want move-in-ready turnkey homes that require little to no additional work.

To make your home move-in ready when it is outdated, damaged, or distressed, it could take a lot of time and money.

Selling off-market is another choice if you want to sell quickly without making repairs.

Off-market implies that you're using a method other than the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), such as iBuyer, a private investor, an investment firm, or Sundae's marketplace. No open homes, no contingencies, and no updates are included when selling with Sundae. You'll receive your highest offer shortly after listing your home on our market.

How long does it take to sell a house as-is?

There are many factors that impact the amount of time it takes to sell your house. Some are beyond your control such as interest rates, the economy, and the demand for properties in your market. Then there are things that you have complete control over like how you decide to sell your house.

Even for a turnkey property, it can take multiple months to sell your house following the traditional real estate agent process. For a damaged house that needs work, it might take longer. You could do updates to your house to combat this. However, repairs take time and require money out of pocket.

Once your house is listed on the MLS, you can expect a few things to happen. There are likely going to be property showings and open houses to attract buyers. When you get an offer, there will be a negotiation period that may include a home inspection along with other contingencies. After this, the buyer will likely need to get financing before closing.

When you sell off-market, you typically have more control over the process. Cash buyers can be flexible with things such as closing and might be willing to waive contingencies. On Sundae’s marketplace, you can close in as little as 10 days after accepting an offer. You’ll need to speak with a team member, do a brief at-home visit where we can build your profile, and agree to let us list your house first.

Does Sundae charge any fees?

What’s the difference between Sundae and an iBuyer?

People want to sell for quick cash for a variety of reasons. Perhaps it’s an inherited house, an unwanted property, you’re relocating, or a rental property gone sour. Others want to avoid foreclosure, probate, or have another unforeseen circumstance.

iBuyers and “we buy houses” companies may promise a cash offer today, which can be very appealing if you want to sell your house quickly. Sundae and iBuyers provide speed when the time comes to sell your house, but there are several key differences. Before committing to one option, know that there are other stress-free options to get a fair offer.

  • You don’t pay seller fees. When you sell your house to an iBuyer, they may charge you fees as part of the transaction. There are no seller fees with Sundae, which helps you net more money.
  • You can sell a damaged house as-is. iBuyers probably won’t purchase a house that’s distressed and needs major repairs such as a new foundation or a new roof. Sundae can help you sell without any updates to our pool of over 20,000 cash home buyers who prefer houses that need some TLC.
  • You have more choices. An iBuyer typically gives one offer that you can take or decline. With this model, you don’t get to evaluate different options. Sundae’s marketplace format allows local investors and others across the country to place offers on your house. This could lead to multiple offers and helps you find the highest offer for your house before committing to sell.

Should I sell my house now in San Bernardino/Riverside?

When you begin to consider selling your house, it’s important to understand that national trends such as interest rates and the overall economy impact housing. Rising interest rates make home ownership more expensive and affect what potential buyers can afford on a month-to-month basis. Some would-be buyers are waiting it out and others have more limited budgets as a result.

Another factor to be aware of is the overall economy. There has been a lot of uncertainty lately with large layoffs in the tech space, supply chain issues, and more. That’s part of why we’re seeing declines in overall purchases in some markets.

Even as housing markets across the country see dips, the San Bernardino real estate market continues to see above-average price growth. The median home price in San Bernardino is $465,000, which is a year-over-year increase of over 8.1%.

Keep in mind that real estate is very specific to the market you live in and even where you live within your city. That’s why we recommend looking at houses that were recently sold in your area that resemble your house’s condition, size, and so on. This will give you a better idea of what your house might sell for.

As you prepare to sell, consider what the average days on market are in your part of San Bernardino or elsewhere in the Inland Empire. Also consider the amount of equity you have in your house and what your next living situation will be.
