The housing market has been friendly to sellers over the past several years. However, this doesn’t mean that you can simply put your house on the market and expect it to sell immediately. If your home has significant issues such as a cracked foundation, an old roof or dated furnishings, there is no guarantee that your house will be appealing to buyers. Fortunately, the folks at Happy Door are willing to purchase your house regardless of its condition.
What Is Ottawa House Buyer?
An Ottawa house buyer is someone who is willing to make cash offers for almost any properties that their owners want or need to sell. Since the offers are made in cash, there is no need to spend days or weeks waiting for the buyer to obtain loan approval. While we are going to inspect your property before making an offer, it won’t impact your ability to sell it. Depending on what type of loan a traditional buyer is seeking, a poor inspection may result in a lender denying that person’s request for financing.
It’s important to note that we are different than most investors because we don’t have specific investment criteria. It’s not uncommon for traditional real estate investors to only put money into specific types of properties or to bypass homes that might be too costly to renovate. We are also different because we will typically offer more for your home than others who may be in the market to buy residential real estate to flip or use as rental properties.
You should also be aware that our company’s mission is to maximize your ability to profit from the sale of your home. This is done in part by offering as close to market value for your house as possible. It is also done by working to ensure that we take as little of the overall profit from the sale as possible.
What Services Does HappyDoor Offer?
HappyDoor primarily buys properties that individuals want to liquidate in a timely manner. After acquiring a property, we will take whatever steps are necessary to bring it up to code or otherwise make it more appealing to buyers. Once the house has been updated, it will likely be put on the market.
Where Does HappyDoor Operate?
Currently, we operate primarily in Ottawa and Toronto. However, we will look at properties that are reasonably close to these two locations. Ultimately, there is no harm in giving us a call or contacting us online to learn more about how we may be able to help you.
Who Can HappyDoor Help?
We can help anyone who is looking to liquidate their property as quickly as possible. For example, if you have just gotten a job in a new city, we can be the happy home buyer that takes possession of your house before you have to leave town.
If you have just gotten divorced, you may not envy the thought of staying in your home that you shared with your former spouse. Therefore, it may be a good idea to work with a company that may be able to officially purchase your home within days of your marriage coming to an end.
Let’s say that your home doesn’t need a new roof or has any issues with the foundation. This doesn’t mean that your home doesn’t need any work before it can be sold. Of course, you may not want to spend the time or money it takes to paint the home’s exterior or put a new carpet in the living room. Getting in touch with HappyDoor can make it easy to sell your house without the hassle of staging it for buyers.
Finally, we can help anyone who isn’t interested in working with a traditional agent. Although HappyDoor does charge a fee for its services, it’s possible that the fee will be less than the commission typically paid to a traditional agent. Furthermore, you can feel good that our team will work in a timely, friendly, and professional manner at all times. This isn’t always the case when you work with a traditional real estate firm.
As you are guaranteed to receive an offer from us, you don’t have to worry about scheduling multiple showings of your property. This can be particularly frustrating if you are trying to sell a home on your own because you have to make yourself available at all times. However, with us, you only have to make yourself available for a few minutes at a time that is convenient for you.
How Does the Transaction Process Work?
The transaction process is a relatively straightforward one. First, you send in a form requesting more information about the process of selling your home or to schedule an appointment for an estimate. After receiving this form, you will be put in touch with one of our customer service representatives who will provide more information about how to sell your home to us.
If you are still interested in selling your home, you can then schedule an appointment for a home visit. During the home visit, one of our team members will inspect the property for any issues that might need to be addressed before it can be sold. Finally, you will be given an estimate as to how much your home is worth to us.
It’s important to keep in mind that you are not obligated to sell your house simply because you received an estimate. However, if you accept the offer to purchase your home, you are generally obligated to abide by the terms of the deal.
Assuming that you do agree to sell your home, it may be possible to close on the sale in as little as 10 days. However, if you need more time to get your affairs in order, the closing date can be delayed for up to 60 days. This may be ideal if you are trying to buy a home and need some leeway to ensure that you can take possession of a new property before selling your current one.
When Can You Expect to See Your Money?
HappyDoor offers a $10,000 cash advance that is available as soon as you sign an agreement to purchase your house. This advance can be used to cover the cost of hiring a moving company, making a down payment on your next residence or for any other reason. Any additional funds that you are owed will typically be available after the transaction officially closes.
What Else Should You Know About Selling Your Home to HappyDoor?
One of the key advantages of selling your home to HappyDoor is that you don’t have to worry about closing costs. In a typical sale, the seller will pay up to 10% of the sale price to cover an agent’s commission, provincial taxes and other fees. Of course, when you sell to us, you won’t need to hire a real estate agent, which should keep your actual costs to a minimum.
Selling your home in a timely manner is critical if you have to complete a move in a matter of days or weeks. Knowing that a company such as HappyDoor is available to serve as a reliable buyer can provide you with peace of mind during what might be a stressful time in your life.
