Why Los Angeles homeowners sell with Sundae

On the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), turnkey properties tend to fetch top-dollar. For this reason, a traditional real estate agent might recommend that you do renovations to your dated and distressed house before you list it. This is time consuming, expensive and doesn’t guarantee that you’ll net more money when it’s all said and done.

Let us sell your house fast in a short amount of time without making any updates or costly repairs. You won’t need to have any open houses, you could receive multiple offers, and there are no fees paid to Sundae by the seller.

Risks to selling your house fast

There are three main risks that you might come across when trying to sell your house fast:

  • Undervaluing your property. Buyers will try to get you to accept a low offer, because they know you want to sell fast. That means less money in your pocket.
  • Getting scammed and unsavory behavior. Beware of predatory tactics like low-ball offers and the bait-and-switch. This is when you’re offered a certain price, then the buyer renegotiates for way less than they promised after they have you on the hook.
  • Missing out on another opportunity. It’s important to evaluate your options for selling before making a decision, so that you know you made the right choice when the deal is done.

Sundae understands the risks of selling your house fast and takes this into account throughout our process. If you’re concerned about leaving money on the table or afraid that you missed a good opportunity, our marketplace offers reassurance. You might get your highest offer on our platform with no obligation to accept. We also ensure that our investors have proof of funds when they make an offer, so that you can’t get scammed or otherwise taken advantage of.

No matter where you are in the home selling process, we’ll help you navigate situations so that you’ll always know what’s happening.

Compare multiple offers for your house on your timeline

With Sundae, you don’t need to settle for less. In fact, we’re dedicated to helping you discover more options.

Sundae’s marketplace is full of cash home buyers. Our platform drives investor competition for your house, sometimes leading to multiple offers. Real estate investors are incentivized to give their best offer on your house if they want to beat their competitors. As a result, you’re in control to decide which offer works best for you and your family.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

The fastest way to sell a house that needs work is by selling off market. This means selling with a fast cash offer either directly to an investor, iBuyer  or using a marketplace like Sundae. In doing so, you’ll be able to save time and money that would’ve otherwise been spent on renovations.

Even though your house may not be at risk of entering foreclosure, you want to move on with your life. When evaluating ways to sell, consider all of the on-market and off-market options.

How long does it take to sell my house in distressed condition?

In general, it takes longer to sell a house that needs work on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) than it does for market-ready properties. Whether you decide to sell as-is or renovate before listing, it could take several months to sell. Your money will likely sit in escrow during this time.

The fastest way to sell a house that needs work is by exploring off-market options such as working with a wholesaler or iBuyer, selling to an individual investor or using Sundae’s marketplace. These options give you more control over the time horizon for selling.

Though you might not get an offer today, our team will help you field offers just days after a home inspection takes place and we receive your completed home seller disclosures. During this time, property investors on our marketplace will place offers on your house. We will bring your highest non-contingent cash offer to you at that point.

Does Sundae charge any fees?

When you list your property with us, you don’t pay any fees to Sundae as the seller. This model ensures that you’re able to maximize your bottom line. Please note that a seller may be responsible for other fees such as HOA fees, paying off the remainder of their mortgage, liens, or other similar circumstances.

What’s the difference between Sundae and an iBuyer?

Sundae is not the same as “we buy houses,” iBuyers, or another home buying company. Both iBuyers and marketplaces like Sundae help you sell your home fast, but there are some key differences that you should be aware of:

  • iBuyers typically target houses that need minimal updates so that they can resell them quickly.
  • Sellers receive one “take it or leave it” offer.
  • When you sell to an iBuyer, they might charge you a fee. This cuts into your bottom line.

On the other hand, Sundae’s marketplace connects sellers with investors who pay cash and specialize in renovations for houses in poor condition. They compete for your house , giving you an opportunity to receive multiple offers. And the best part? As a seller, you pay no fees to Sundae.

Should I sell my house now in Los Angeles, CA?

You might want some quick cash to move on from your situation, but it’s crucial that you do some research first. Before deciding to sell your house, you need to understand some real estate basics and how they impact you in the Los Angeles area.

The market is shifting from a strong seller’s market into an equilibrium. This is a result of rising interest rates, supply chain issues and other factors. With that said, people sell in various market conditions for a variety of reasons. Keep that in consideration when it comes time to price your house.

A good way to get a better feel for pricing in the current market is to conduct your own research. As of August 2022, the median sold price of a single family home in the Los Angeles metropolitan area is $765,000. Less houses are facing foreclosure due to the market appreciation seen across the country, especially in 2021.
