Can I sell if I am out of state?

The short answer is yes! We work with out-of-state sellers all the time and have created a system to make the process as easy as possible for homeowners not wanting to travel back-and-forth to sell a property.

We require no maintenance, repairs, or updates, eliminating much at the stress of selling out of state. No power? No problem! Because we don’t require a full inspection, it’s OK if the property has no utilities. Although we like to access the house to do a walk-through, we can often make an offer over the phone after a bit of research. After that, we send you a contract, which can be signed digitally, then deal directly with the title company so you can just sit back, relax, wait for your check!

Benefits of Selling a Property “Off-Market”

Most people think that the path to the highest profit when selling their home is through a real estate agent. Real estate agents list homes on the MLS, giving access to a broad, buyer’s market. However, there are a few things to keep in mind if you are considering selling your home.

First, is your home show-ready? Real estate agents are going to be giving tours of your house to potential homebuyers and will expect the house to be clean, to present well, and be empty or available for up to 10 showings a day. If you are still living in your home, this can create a huge hassle and inconvenience for a number of reasons.

Second, do you have money to put into the house prior to selling? Potential buyers will most likely have a conventional home loan through a bank requiring bank appraisals and thorough inspections. In order to sell a home this way, sellers need to be prepared to spend some significant money in order to make the repairs and updates required by banks and lenders.

Third, are you prepared to give 10% of the selling price away at closing? Real estate agents charge a 3% listing fee, deducted from the proceeds at closing. But sellers also must factor in an additional 3% that is paid to the buyer’s agent. The closing is then completed through the title company which will charge around 4% on top of that, so homeowners immediately forfeit about 10% of the sales price of their home.

At Property Relief Network, we will purchase your home, regardless of the condition and require no appraisals or repairs. There are no fees, commission, and we cover all closing costs, so you walk away with 100% of your home’s sales price. Selling direct allows homeowners to cut through the hassle, headache, and additional expenses incurred by listing on the MLS. It is for this reason, more and more people are now choosing to skip the middleman and sell directly to investors like us.
