A great perk of a fast sale is the elimination of holding costs. By selling in a few days vs. months down the road, you’ll be able to potentially save thousands on utility bills, homeowners insurance, property taxes, and other costs that you would otherwise be paying to own the home.

*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 John Medina Buys Houses, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
