WARNING: Offers May Not Be As They Appear
As we continue to wonder we realize that there may be an easy out.
Opendoor, Offerpad, and now Zillow, all make the sales process easier than ever.
But….. why? That is the question. And if you follow the money the answer will appear like a Las Vegas neon flashing sign.
Sometimes these companies are disguised as good Samaritans. The truth is that they are rubbing their hands in glee because you are going to hand them the keys to your equity.
If that were not the case they would not be offering quick cash for your pad. And if you really knew the numbers you would never open the door to let these robbers ransack your wallet.
How and Why do we Fall Prey to This?
It’s because deep down we know that to pull off “flip my house” a successful flip is very risky for someone who has not got experience. Perhaps we don’t know how to go about budgeting & financing the improvements and oversee a project from start to finish. Maybe it’s because we don’t have the energy to see it through. Maybe they think they have to be in the flipping biz to pull this off.
Then again, the allure of a quick cash purchase sounds so simple. After all, doesn’t it seem attractive to think that you can press a button and get an offer on your home?
Isn’t it comforting to imagine that you can ditch the hassle of the selling process? It actually sounds like it could be one of the best experiences of your real estate dealings. It all starts with a simple click, then you move on.
They say you will get a competitive offer, but have you got the expertise to scrutinize the details? Probably not if you don’t do this for a living. Chances are that you are leaving thousands on the table. There are probably fees you may not recognize as being out of whack.
You may be surprised when the inspections are done. You might be spared from having buyers walking through your property, but what about all of their carpenters, electricians, plumbers, and specialty contractors going through your home looking for things to justify a price reduction?
It’s Your Equity | You Earned it | You Keep it
It doesn’t have to be this way. There are far better options for you. Options that put those flipping profits in your pocket instead of one of those equity snatching companies.
You may be surprised at what a kitchen remodel or bathroom rehab can do for your bottom line.
Add a new paint job and flooring and the house will look as if it is drinking from the fountain of youth. Now, how do you go about developing the right plan?

Creating a long-term plan to flip your house often entails receiving potential estimates for the work discussed during the property evaluation.

Professional contractors with a record for quality and a penchant for perfection will provide you with a follow-up plan of action coupled with estimates. Here are few upgrades to consider when speaking with the contractor:
🍳 Flip my House – Cultivate Your Kitchen
If you are planning to upgrade aspects of your home to influence a successful flip, you must start with one of the top three rooms that sell a home: the kitchen. Have you stared at that dull countertop for years, but you didn’t know what you wanted to do with it? Do you have saved idea options from magazines about the general decorative direction you’d like to go in? Realize that it is all achievable.
When doing a long-term renovation, you have the time to peruse the vast selection of granite countertops and compare them to their famed marble counterparts. The quality of products and materials used in a flip show through when you finally decide to sell, so choose wisely. Most trusted contractors can offer a plethora of samples of stone variations with different patterns to help you achieve the look your seeking.
Consider selecting the countertop first then working your way to cabinetry color selection, matching backsplashes, wall color selection and flooring. Taking on the kitchen with a trusted contractor over the course of a few months. Will allow you to absorb the change in the design of the room and may set the tone for how you want to decorate the rest of the home.
Small upgrades like a window seat, built-in island, and upgraded appliances always add that extra zest when cultivating the kitchen design. When you are selecting your overall design consider small touches like matching cabinet knobs, crown molding and cabinet lighting. Create the kitchen with the concept of what you would expect for a vacation rental or what you would impress you if you were purchasing the home.
🌴 Land the Deal with Landscaping
It always starts as a weekend project to add a new species of flowers to your garden bed. To enjoy the buds of nature based on season, but it always seems to get put off. The first impression of a home is not just the exterior of the home, but the condition of the frontal foliage leading up to your door. If you are thinking of tackling the front and backyard. Then consider adding solar lights, repaving your driveway, and the possibility of an addition in the form of a patio.
Creating welcoming walkway to the door can be achieved with strategic lighting and a dynamic yet neutral lining planter. You want to build anticipation for the interior, but it’s important to realize the backyard is an extension of the home too. Create a backyard oasis by upgrading your current patio with a change in brick, creation of a deck or incorporation of a pond.
Landscape contractors often provide a full estimate that would also include the reseeding of your front and backyard. To give your home healthy lush green grass. Speak with a landscape professional about the different genes of flowers that can grow during your renovation that will give off the appeal that they were planted since the construction of the home. Long-term renovations provide the advantage of allowing the additions, such as plants, to settle providing a cohesive look overall.
🛁 Bathrooms – Bountiful in Return of Investment

Consider following suit and commission the creation of sink bowls for the bathrooms that match the marbling on the vanity countertops.
