Why An “Instant Offer” May Not Be Best For You
Getting a cash bid for your home after inputting basic information sounds easy and stress-free.
But, there are downsides to “instant offer” services from Opendoor, Offerpad, Zillow, and similar companies.
INSTANT OFFERS BENEFIT INVESTORS, NOT YOU
Investors who would buy your property want to make a profit. Some even intend to find a buyer willing to pay more right away. Why sell to an investor for less money than you could get otherwise?
THE OFFERS AREN’T BASED ON ACCURATE DATA
These websites often use incomplete, misleading information. The Tomlin Team, however, has access to true market comparisons and pricing data. If you have replaced bathroom fixtures, installed new floors, installed new kitchen countertops, replaced HVAC systems, etc., “Instant Offers” may not take those improvements into account. You need a thorough, in-person estimate of your home’s value.
