Why Sacramento homeowners sell with Sundae

A traditional real estate agent has access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and a large database of buyers. These potential buyers may prefer turnkey options rather than fixer-uppers. That’s why an agent could recommend updating your house before listing it. If you decide to sell without repairs on the MLS, you risk letting your house sit on the market.

Updates take time and money. You also don’t want your house to spend months on the market. A fast alternative is to sell as-is with Sundae. There are no open houses, no contingencies, and you may even net more money. Within days of putting your house on our marketplace, you’ll be presented with the highest offer you received.

Risks to selling your house fast

Selling a house quickly has risks involved. With a proper understanding of what to look out for, we can help you reduce these risks.

  • Overpricing your house. There’s a fine line between what you want and what people are willing to pay for your house. It may have the opposite effect if you price your house higher than it should be and still expect to sell fast. To avoid overpricing your house, our team uses recent market data and comps in the area. Those will inform us of a price range that may attract more offers if it is closer to market value pricing.
  • Undervaluing your house. Beware: scammers and dishonest people exist in real estate. It may seem tempting to take the first offer you see if you need cash, but there’s a chance that you could be getting low-balled. Sundae’s marketplace on the other hand incentivizes investors to put their best offer first if they want to get it accepted. Plus, there’s no obligation to say yes if you don’t like the offer.
  • Marketing your house to the wrong audience. If you focus your efforts on attracting mainstream homebuyers, you will find that they prefer turnkey options. When selling a distressed house, it’s important to target investors who buy houses for cash and other groups that have the means to fix up your property. Sundae’s database of over 20,000 investors want houses like yours in as-is condition.

Compare multiple offers for your house on your timeline

On Sundae’s marketplace, you have the chance to attract multiple offers. Though this isn’t a guarantee, our latest data shows that homeowners average 22 offers when selling with Sundae. The reason is simple: a marketplace format generates competition from our pool of over 20,000 investors.

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?

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?

Every situation is different. Generally speaking, houses sell faster in a seller’s market than in a buyer’s market, so you should look at the days-on-market trends in your area. This is largely out of your control, though.

What you do have control over is how you decide to sell. Will you sell on-market with a traditional real estate agent or look for off-market solutions? This will also impact the speed of the sale.

Typically when you work with a traditional real estate agent, there will be open houses or property showings, negotiation with buyers, and possible contingencies like qualifying for a mortgage. You may also need to prep your house and make renovations before listing. All of this takes time. Sometimes it can take months to sell a turnkey house and even longer for a distressed house on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS).

Selling off-market often gives you more flexibility with things like closing time and other terms you can negotiate. With Sundae, it takes Sacramento sellers an average of 91 days to close from start to finish. Getting to this point requires you to have an initial call with a team member, filling out paperwork, having your house’s profile created by our team, and your house listed.

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 or a rental property. 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.

Is your house in rough shape or in need of some extra TLC? iBuyers might not be interested if your house is distressed or anything beyond cosmetic updates. Our pool of cash buyers will purchase your house as-is even if you have foundation problems or a leaky roof.

Another difference is that iBuyers purchase your house directly and will often give you one “take it or leave it” cash offer today. With one offer, how do you know that you’re getting the highest or best offer? Sundae’s marketplace allows cash home buyers to compete over your house, increasing the odds of multiple offers. That way, you can rest assured knowing that you explored all of your options for a fair cash offer before selling.

Finally, iBuyers may charge you fees as part of the selling process. There are no seller fees paid directly to Sundae, which helps you net more money.

Should I sell my house now in Sacramento, CA?

There is no such thing as a national real estate market, but there are some trends that impact housing across the country. The biggest national trends are the economy and interest rates. There has been a lot of uncertainty lately with large layoffs in the tech space, supply chain issues, and more. That’s why we’re seeing declines in overall purchases in most markets.

This plus rising interest rates have caused some would-be buyers to wait-it-out. With higher interest rates than we’ve seen in recent years, people can’t afford as much on a month-to-month basis. As a result, your buyer pool may be more limited.

As you know, Sacramento houses benefited greatly from the 2020-2021 stretch where buyers wanted more space. Even as the market cools and transitions to a buyers market, Sacramento’s median home price increased by 2% year-over-year to $469,000. If you have owned your house for some time, it could have equity built up that you want to cash in on.

When making your ultimate decision, remember that it’s impossible to predict the future. Focus on what selling your Sacramento home will do for your goals and future ambitions.
