Why You Should Not Sell Your Home to a Real Estate Investor

It is important to start this article with the basic premise: you need to know when you should not sell your house to a real estate investor.     

Your house is one of the most valuable assets that you own. Despite not having paid off a mortgage or not having completely handled the financing of the house, you must handle all business endeavors regarding your house with the utmost care. In order to do this, you must contact people who have your best interests at heart when it comes to selling your home.    

Our company, JAM Properties, LLC seeks to provide clear-cut real estate advising and solution services. We are a residential redevelopment company that does NOT just seek to purchase and resell your home.  At JAM Properties, we work with you throughout the entire process to be sure you are receiving your most advantageous option.  Sometimes that means not selling the home to us and going a different route.  We believe in presenting you with all of your real estate options so that you can make the best decision for you and your family.  If you are dealing with a real estate investor that only gives you one option, perhaps you should seek another opinion.        

Another thing to watch out for are investors who solely focus on making themselves a profit. Most real estate investors seek to purchase a home for the least amount possible, do very minimal upgrades, and then resell the home at a huge markup which will give them the best profit. This is not a sustainable way to build a community, however, nor does it necessarily help the next resident who comes into the home.  If money seems like the main motivator when dealing with a real estate investor, consider finding someone who is more concerned about your personal needs.     

Our approach at JAM Properties is to work one-on-one with each client who is in need of help from a variety of real estate problems. We support and assist a wide assortment of problems, ranging from foreclosure avoidance to navigating the probate process. We seek to help homeowners, improve residences, and build a better community.  A community, after all, is just that – a community. If someone is not happy in the community, it is not the best it can be.  As real estate investors, we are in business to find solutions, aid others, and give back to our community.

However, our mission statement does not stop with just words. We are able to handle all of our transactions in cash and close quickly if a fast sale is what you need. This facilitates a quick operation and reduces most, if not all, of the hassles that are involved in a traditional real estate transaction. Many real estate agents and even some investors will pile you up with paperwork and require inspections, repairs, and other fees. Our goal is to keep the process simple, find the best solution for YOU, and help you feel confident that you are making the best-informed decision you can make.

If you do decide to sell your home to us, you can rest assured that we will take great care of it.  We spend a lot of time renovating homes in the area and always try to leave a positive mark on the communities we serve.  We carefully fix the home up to its maximum potential and then find someone who will move in and care for it years into the future.  With a wealth of homes in our portfolio, we are able to offer high-quality, renovated homes that are ready to be moved into.

To conclude, there are times when you should not sell your home to a real estate investor.  Unlike licensed real estate agents, real estate investors need no formal training or education and are not regulated by a board.  Honestly, anyone can call themselves a real estate investor and not know what they’re doing.  Others lack ethics and honesty, two highly important qualities.  When in doubt, get a second or third opinion from another investor or company to be sure you don’t end up with seller’s remorse.
