Selling My House Fast in Parkersburg – Your Options
There’s no doubt that selling your house through a real estate agent can be a great option for many sellers; especially is you have plenty of time to wait for the right buyer, the money to pay holding costs, the willingness to do the repairs necessary for bank financing (or pay a contractor to do them), and the patience to see some offers fall through restarting the whole process. It allows you to sell to a buyer using bank financing and can let you get top dollar for your home in perfect instances. What if you just want to sell your Parkersburg house fast for cash and forget about all the headaches associated with the traditional method of selling? You have a few options.
1. List the House Yourself
The first option is that you can list the house yourself, market it, show it, take offers, and set up the closing yourself. We can tell you from our experience, this can be very tricky. Now a days, it is very easy to list your property for sale on sites like Zillow, Facebook Marketplace or any of the other platforms like that. The problem lies in finding cash buyers that are serious, have the money, and aren’t just wasting your time or lying to you. You will have to deal with people not showing up to see the house when they are supposed to, backing out of buying last minute, or ghosting you on the day of closing (trust us, it happens). Then when you finally find someone who may be a serious, cash buyer you have to find a closing office that will oversee the sale to make sure everything is done by the books, and this service isn’t free.
2. List with a Realtor
The second option is to list with a realtor who will market the property as an as-is sale for cash buyers only. This option can work in some cases but you will have to pay them a 6% commission after the sale, pay closing costs, and wait until they find a buyer. This is only if everything goes perfectly. From our experience, most real estate agents don’t want to take on these kind of sales because they are more work and less pay for them. If you are looking to sell your house for cash it is probably not going to be a very high sale price because buyers cannot use bank financing. This means the realtors 6% commission of a low sale price isn’t enough to incentivize them to work hard to sell your house. For instance, many realtors won’t want to work on selling your house in need of repairs for $30,000 because their commission would only be $1,800, and they would have to work hard to find a very specific buyer. They would prefer a finished house that will sell itself and will sell for $100,000. This allows them to make over 3x as much
3. Sell Directly to a Qualified, Professional Home-Buyer
The third option is to sell to a qualified home-buyer. Often, qualified home-buyers have access to multiple lines of credit with public and private lenders that is secured by other assets. This means they will have the funding already available, they’re experienced, and are primed to close on your house quickly. Even if they aren’t interested in purchasing your house, many of them work with a large network of buyers and can set up a transaction where another investor will come in and buy your house. This simplifies the process for you and makes your experience more pleasant and profitable.

You’ll have to do some due diligence to make sure you’re dealing with a qualified local investor. Qualified investors will have no problem providing you access to references who can verify the investor’s ability to close on the property.
