When it’s time to sell a home, homeowners often think of selling the traditional way that includes listing the home with a real estate agent. Once a homeowner heads down that traditional path, the time, money, and effort it takes to simply prepare the house to go on the market become overwhelming and stressful. The “to do” list most often ranges from minor fixes such as painting or decluttering to major repairs that most likely require a contractor. And the work isn’t just on the inside of the house, but also on the outside in order to maximize curb appeal because first impressions make a difference to potential buyers. All of this is needed just to get the home prepared to go on the market. For those homeowners wanting to avoid all the time, energy, and money to sell the traditional route, the good news is that Minneapolis-based Homestead Road has an alternate worth considering.
Since 2007, Homestead Road has helped well over 1,000 homeowners in the Mpls/St. Paid area avoid all the hassles and stress associated with selling a home using a traditional real estate agent. We recently asked David Nix, Chief Marketing Officer of Homestead Road to tell us more about the service they provide to homeowners.
Q. HOW DOES HOMESTEAD ROAD HELP HOMEOWNERS AVOID ALL THE HASSLES AND STRESS OF SELLING A HOME?
We provide a service to homeowners by helping them completely skip the long list of “to dos” because we buy houses in their present or “as is” condition. We purchase homes in any condition and just as important, there are no open houses or showings to deal with. Essentially all of the stress and hassles are shifted away from the homeowner to Homestead Road, making the process of selling a home simple and easy. We strive to help homeowners move forward faster, without the hassles and stress.
Q. WHAT STEPS ARE INVOLVED WITH SELLING YOUR HOME TO HOMESTEAD ROAD?
Our process is simple and straightforward and starts with a free, no-obligation consultation. One of our home sales advisors will meet with you at your home to learn about your needs, hear your story, and then make an evaluation. Within a day, we present a transparent offer and openly share how we calculated it. If the offer is accepted, we handle all details from start to finish. While closing of the sale can be done in as little as two weeks, it is always based on what works best for the homeowner’s needs. We are committed to give you as much time as needed to prepare for a less stressful move.
Q. WHAT MAKES HOMESTEAD ROAD UNIQUE?
Besides being an easy and simple way to sell a home versus the traditional method, Homestead Road has a talented team of people who day in and day out are truly energized and driven to delight each customer throughout the process. We pride ourselves in providing an exceptional customer-focused experience throughout the process. This starts with the very first meeting where we listen and understand the needs of the customer with respect and compassion as the homeowner’s situation is often unique. Besides a very caring approach, our home sales advisors offer great knowledge and expertise — in fact, they have a combined average of 20 years of real estate experience.
Q. WHAT COSTS ARE INVOLVED?
There are no costs, commissions or hidden fees. A transparent offer is presented in less than 24 hours after the initial meeting and evaluation. Our home sales advisors ai e always willing to explain how the offer was derived and offer fair, unbiased advice. In fact, on occasion our advisors have encouraged homeowners to explore selling the traditional way with an agent if it’s apparent they may have the time, resources and ability to complete the updates, repairs and cleaning needed for that option. We aspire to help people move forward with ease in a way that best fits their situation while allowing them to be in control as we guide them. Read More
