Bunny Hill Properties offers the easiest way to sell a home in the Denver area. Our process provides homeowners an alternative to selling their home on the market, yielding benefits otherwise lost in the traditional transaction process.
Selling your home on the market comes with many benefits – you can create a competitive atmosphere and hope for an above-average offer. However, this takes time and energy; resources homeowners often don’t want to expend on the home selling process. Plus, if a home is not marketed correctly and it sits on the market for an extended period of time, a homeowner risks the property becoming old news and ultimately loses their financial position. Because when a home sits on the market, the value that it sells for typically declines. To avoid this stressful process, we have outlined a six-step method for homeowners to sell their homes and feel confident on the day they close. Here’s what we offer to homeowners in the Denver area.
As locals in the Denver market, we have our finger on the pulse of what is happening. We understand the position of property owners in a hot market and are willing to show prospective clients all of the options available to them with their homes. Once we assess the home and give our expert opinion to the homeowner, we make a competitive offer.
Unlike other all-cash homebuyers who are looking to get a cheap home, we are more than that! We are looking for people interested in selling to local experts and interested in continuing growth within the Denver community.
Selling your home is a huge step, and you should feel secure that you are making the best option for your future.
We are not your typical all-cash buyer. We are not here just to tell you the reasons to sell to us! Instead, we have established ourselves as a resource for those in the community. Rather than simply making you an offer, we conduct a full analysis of your options. Then you can see which alternative is best for you – whether it’s selling your home on the market with an agent or to us.
Taking your home to market typically requires an extended commitment. Not only does your real estate agent need to find a buyer, but then you must open escrow so that the buyer can complete their due diligence on the home. Then, once your buyer is ready to close, they generally want to move into the home immediately.
But what about homeowners looking to control the timeline? What about those who want to close quickly? Or those who want to extend escrow to accommodate other life events? Or even to negotiate a lease-back option? For those who want this flexibility, we offer the solution. We let our clients determine when we close, ensuring they are prepared for the next step in their life.
Contingencies often kill deals. They are the conditions that must be met for a buyer to finalize a home purchase. If a buyer identifies a problem with the home, they have the ability to back out of the sale or negotiate a new price based on their contingency timeline. For example, if a home inspection reveals a roof leak, a buyer may want it fixed, or they may reduce their offer. This process can be timely and can cause sellers to become frustrated with their on-market listing.
Bunny Hill Properties buys homes as-is. This means that our offers will be non-contingent. We do not require homeowners to sit through the process of appraisals or inspections. Instead, we complete our due diligence upfront, making the process hassle-free for local homeowners.
Selling your home comes at a cost. When listing with a real estate agent, a homeowner can expect to pay up to 8% of their home’s closing price in fees. That means that if a homeowner closes their home for $500,000, they should expect to pay nearly $40,000 in fees – 6% in agent commission and 2% in closing costs. These fees often make the sale not worth it for homeowners, especially after they consider the time and energy put into the selling process.
When we buy homes, homeowners can feel secure that they are not responsible for any of these underlying fees. We are not real estate agents, but we know the process of buying and selling. Because of that, we help homeowners avoid paying both real estate and commission fees. Therefore, the price we offer is the amount you get!
For homeowners tired of people coming in and out of their homes for open houses and tours, selling their home on the market can feel overwhelming. Once they decide to list it, they are committed to leaving home on the weekends and stepping out when a prospective buyer wants a quick peek. Many homeowners decide not to move simply to avoid this step to selling!
However, selling to a local home buyer introduces you to a new process – one that does not rely on traditional marketing methods such as open houses. Instead, you only need to show the home once – to US! We want to take a look around our future investment; then, we can make an educated offer, helping you avoid the multiple showings required by an on-market listing.
As a bonus to selling to us, you can close on your home knowing that you have contributed to your community. With every home we buy, we donate 2% of the earnings to a local charity. You can either choose the charity or can select one from the many we already work with. Now, you can walk away from your home knowing that you have been a part of positive change in the Denver community.
Both selling methods offer apparent pros and cons, but it seems that selling off-market may be the best option for those looking for a hassle-free experience
Traditional real estate marketing is designed for the most common situations of sellers and buyers - but not all situations are common! If you want to make the best decision for your unique circumstances, you should consider working with us instead. Here’s why:
|Bunny Hill Properties||Real Estate Agent|
|Do I have to pay a commission?||NO||YES (6% on average)|
|Do I have to pay closing costs?||NO||YES (2% on average)|
|How long does it take to get an offer?||Immediate||3 months on average|
|Is the offer subject to bank/finance contingencies?||NO||YES (many offers fall through)|
|Is an appraisal needed?||NO||YES|
|How many showings do I have to allow?||1 (just us!)||Likely 10+ depending on your agent|
|How long until I can close?||You choose||0-60 days after accepting an offer|
|Who Pays For Repairs?||We do||Negotiated during inspection period|
*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similar, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.
Here at Bunny Hill Properties, we don’t use bank financing, so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
