You'll see a lot of this talk online. The short answer is, no. When you need to sell fast or have a home that needs repairs, your home becomes a liability the longer it sits. It costs you time, money and peace of mind.
While Realtors are great, they can't guarantee a buyer for you, whereas a reliable investor can. A good investor completely eliminates the waiting, the costs and stress that come with selling. You'll know EXACTLY how much you'll be receiving, you can close in days and the condition of the house won't matter.
Even though you may receive less than market value, you'll be able to confidently sell your home at a fair price & move on with your life. It's a great alternative when you consider the time, stress & money you are going to save; especially when you own a troublesome rental property or a home that would be difficult to sell on the market.
