Risks to selling your house fast
When you're trying to sell your house fast, there are three main risks you might run into:
The first is the risk of overpricing. If your home is priced too high, it will sit on the market for a long time and eventually be sold at a lower price—which means that it won't have sold as quickly as you would have liked.The second is the risk of underpricing. You could leave money on the table if you accept a low-ball offer or fall victim to a scam.
There are people in the real estate space known for scamming sellers by using predatory tactics like 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.
The third is the risk of not marketing the home properly. If your home isn't marketed effectively, potential buyers won't know about it or understand what makes it special enough to buy.
On Sundae’s marketplace, we market your home to a pool of over 20,000 real estate investors who pay cash. Our staff also helps come up with a starting price for offers, but several homeowners have sold for more and avoided low-ball offers. Best of all, there’s no obligation to accept an offer.
Compare multiple offers for your house on your timeline
Before accepting an offer today, it’s important to know what your house is worth when selling off-market. To get the most from selling a home as-is, you need to bolster competition for your home. That gives you a better chance of getting a higher offer.
Sundae's marketplace creates competition between real estate investors, which might lead to a handful of offers for you. During the home buying process, cash home buyers are competing with other investors 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.

What our customers are saying
“Took the burden of selling off us”
One of the benefits of Sundae was that they took much of the burden of selling the house off of us. Sundae sold our house in under a month. We appreciated that Sundae represented our interest.
“Thought of preparing to get the house ready was overwhelming”
We’d been thinking about selling the house for quite some time but just the thought of preparing to get the house ready for sale was overwhelming. When Sundae proposed their as-is program, that made a lot of sense for us.
“There was a lot of stuff that needed to be done”
My sister and I shared responsibilities in taking care of my mom. She had passed away so we didn’t want a whole, long drawn out situation. We already knew none of us had the money or the time to put into the house because there was a lot of stuff that needed to be done.
“My life has changed remarkably since selling with Sundae.”
My life has changed remarkably since selling with Sundae. Not having the weight of the uncompleted home hanging over my head is really a game changer.
“I couldn’t recommend you enough!”
I’ve recommended you to several people, two of whom are actually going to use Sundae to sell their homes, plus I already have a friend who is about to close. I couldn’t recommend you enough!
“I was somewhat baffled at how easy it was.”
It was the smoothest transaction I’ve ever done, and I’ve done about 5 houses in my lifetime. I was somewhat baffled at how easy it was. I was waiting for more paperwork, but none ever came. Everything was extremely simple and easy.
“This company is legit.”
This company is legit... the process was smooth, straightforward and painless. Sundae definitely treated me more than fair and I recommend them to anyone trying to sell their place with no renovations and showings!
“Things turned out great.”
Well, at first I didn’t believe it, but that’s the way it turned out. I had him explain that to me, because I thought ‘how could somebody bid on a property and not physically inspect it themselves before making an offer?’ but it worked out great…Three of the offers I received were, in my opinion, absurdly high. But, I went with one of them and things turned out great.
“Was really cool to see a pool of buyers bid on my home.”
I really liked that you guys put the house out to your network of investors. It was really cool to see a pool of buyers bid on my home, I thought that was amazing. Having the ability to see all of the offers from investors on your marketplace made this a truly unique selling experience for me.
