Frequently Asked QuestionsReal estate, Seattle housing market, our process, and more
Q: How can I get an all-cash offer on my home?
A: It’s easy! First, start by requesting an offer on your home. Then, one of our team members will schedule a time to come by and gain a better understanding of your property. After that, we will send you our offer and leave it up to you to decide. Once we reach mutual acceptance, we’ll close in a way that best fits your needs and you’ll receive your cash. That’s it!
Q: How can I sell my home privately?
A: Our all-cash offer program is one of the most private ways you can go about selling your home. This means you won’t have to worry about strangers walking through your house nitpicking through everything they like and don’t like about it.
Q: When I sell my house, do I have to clean it/make repairs beforehand?
A: Normally, if you decided to sell through a traditional agent/brokerage, you will be required to clean and make some repairs on your home. However, with our all-cash offer program, we’ll buy the house as-is. That means less work and higher value at the end of the day for you!
Q: How can I find out how much my home is worth?
A: There are a lot of automated tools you can use to get a general idea of how much your home is worth. One of the most popular of these is the Zillow Zestimate. To get a more accurate number, you can talk to us and get an in-depth report of how much your home is worth before and after repairs. Because it’s being done by humans that are involved in the real estate market on a daily basis, it will be a more accurate view of the actual value of your home.
Q: Should I sell my house traditionally or sell off market and get an all-cash offer & quick close?
A: This largely depends on your personal situation. As a quick guideline, if you need to sell quickly and don’t want to make repairs, an all-cash offer is likely the way to go. You can learn more about how it works here. However, if you don’t need to sell immediately and you don’t mind performing some maintenance, selling your home traditionally may be the best option for you. If you decide to sell your home traditionally, our agents are committed to helping you find the right buyers. Learn more about how you can work with them today.
Q: If I decide to sell my home traditionally, who do you recommend as an agent?
A: We actually have a brokerage right under the Beachworks umbrella! Our dedicated team of agents is committed to helping Seattle homeowners find the perfect buyers for their home. Click here to learn more about how Urban Real Estate Partners can help you through this journey.
Q: What if I don't have representation or an agent but I want to sell my home?
A: No problem! We have experience with purchasing off market homes from homeowners who don’t have agents and are looking for a flexible close. This way, you don’t have to deal with the regular commissions for agents and you can work directly with us.
Q: If I decide to sell to you, what will the process look like?
A: The first step is to request an offer from us on this page, where you’ll give us top-level information about your home so we have something to base it off of. If it meets what we’re looking for, we’ll reach out to schedule a quick appointment and a consultation to get a little bit more information about your home. After we’ve gathered everything we need, we’ll present you with a fair and written offer, with no obligation for you to accept. When we come to a mutual acceptance, we’ll close in the way that works best for you and you’ll receive your cash.
