Have you ever wondered about the following questions?

Is my home worth fixing up?

Is it better to sell my property to a builder or to a conventional buyer?

Can my home be sold "as-is"?

If I sell to a builder, which one will pay me the most money with the best terms?

Do I have to pay a real estate commission if I sell to a builder?

Is my home a tear down or not?

To get the answers to these and other real estate questions, you need the help of an experienced professional. With over 25 years of local real estate experience, Mike Dunitz of Pierside Realty can help.

Some properties are clearly teardowns, meaning a seller will net more money by selling to a developer, with no repair costs, termite work, and little or no closing costs or real estate commissions.

Some properties are definitely not teardowns, as they are too nice to be torn down, and are worth much more to conventional buyers. Sellers of these properties will net more money even after factoring in the costs of a conventional sale.

Other properties require careful evaluation to determine if a seller will net more by selling to a developer, or by selling to conventional buyers. With over 25 years of experience, Mike can evaluate your property by determining what it is worth to a developer (with little or no commissions and closing costs), and what the net price will be with a conventional sale after closing costs and commissions. When it's too close to call, it is often a good idea to put a property on the open market, looking to get offers from both developers as well as regular buyers. If a developer happens to offer the best deal, the property can still be sold little or no commissions or closing costs.

If it makes more sense to sell to a builder, your property can be sold with little or no commissions and closing costs (the builder usually pays the commission upon the sale of the newly constructed home). There would be no need to prepare the property for sale -- the property would be purchased "as-is", which will save you money for costly repairs and termite work, and your valuable time will not be wasted with open houses, phone calls, inspections and other hassles. Escrows can be long or short, depending on your plans. If selling to a builder makes sense in your case, Mike will offer your property to many builders at once, in an attempt to get multiple offers. Having builders compete over your property will ensure that you receive the highest price possible, at terms that are favorable to you.

If your home is worth more if it's sold to conventional buyers, I can suggest ways to get your property looking its best, help price it properly, and market it in a way that exposes it to the entire marketplace, thus ensuring Top Dollar for you. I guarantee your satisfaction, or you can cancel your listing.
