5 Benefits of Selling Your Home to Property Buying Companies

Published

on

Many homeowners sell their homes to quick buyers for many reasons. Some of these include relocation to a different state, medical emergency, debt consolidation, or even divorce. If you want to sell your home fast and at a significant value, you should consider companies that purchase homes for cash. Read on to know five reasons why you should consider home buying companies.

Fast closings

One of the reasons why homeowners sell their properties to home buying companies is because of the quick closings. When you decide to sell the house to property buying firms, you will sell it in not more than seven days. These companies will bypass many formalities in the buying process by acquiring the home in its present condition. If you are ever in a position that constrains you to sell the home fast, then you should consider selling it to the best property buying company.

Cash offers

Homeowners will rarely get cash offers for selling their home, unless they sell to a property buying firm. A cash buyer is always more appealing to any individual selling property. Cash is what you will get when you consider using a property buying business. Furthermore, you can have access to your money as soon as the deal is finalized. If you want cash offers, make sure that you get a company that offers this because not all of them will offer cash.

Reasonable rates

Property buying companies will purchase a home at about 60 to 85% of its prevailing market rate. Furthermore, some good companies can even offer clients over 80% of the market rates of the property. This is a reasonable rate, especially for individuals who want to sell their property as quickly as possible. Additionally, great property buying companies will offer accurate evaluations that will ensure you get value for your money. In most cases, you will not even pay for the evaluation charges.

Sell the house in its present condition

With property buying companies, you will sell your home in its existing condition and shape. Whether your home for sale is resilient, sturdy, and well maintained or it is in poor condition after years of tear and wear, you can get a company to buy it. You will no longer have to worry about spending money on repairs and renovations. Most will pay cash for homes, and investors and home buyers will purchase the old home just as it stands.

Save cash

When you work with a home selling company, you will save cash that would be spent on additional expenses. You will spare yourself the expensive commissions and fees charged by real estate agents. In addition, you will not spend cash marketing your home.  You will also not waste your money on home renovations and repair before selling your residential property.

Even with the help of a real estate agent, your property buyer can still leave you hanging before completely closing the transaction. This can be quite frustrating especially for homeowners who want to sell their homes quickly. You can avoid such risks by opting for property buying companies. Due to the speed and ease of the selling process, you will avoid common issues that occur during the sales transaction. When the direct home buyer makes the cash payment, there will be no chance of them backing out at the last minute.

Tom and Michael D’Angora, Tim Guinee and Joe Iconis Are Back To Save The West Bank Cafe

Published

on

Steve Olsen, has his band of Merry Men with Tom and Michael D’Angora, Tim Guinee and Joe Iconis. In 2020, with a GoFundMe and a a star-studded Christmas Day Telethon they raised $345,422 (the target was $250,000). This year they are back with GoFundMe page and are in the midst of planning a star-studded gala event to assist with fundraising.  They have raised $18,755, but are looking for $850,000.
Steve Olsen has stated “Our business quadrupled last week since we announced our closing, There is a movement to keep our doors open a little longer.”
This is Tom D’Angora’s pitch on GoFundMe
Four years ago, we came together as a community and created a miracle to make sure that The West Bank Cafe/Laurie Beechman Theatre would survive the pandemic. Now Michael D’Angora, Tim Guinee, Joe Iconis and myself are asking you all to come together to create one last miracle so The West Bank Cafe can not only survive but THRIVE.
For 46 years West Bank Cafe has been a popular theater district haunt. It has been a launching pad for countless musicians, actors, comedians, and writers — a “must visit” for tourists, a “go to” for locals and a perfect spot for a business meeting, a pre-theater meal or after show drinks with friends.
The road post-pandemic has not been an easy one, but Steve Olsen and the incredible staff at The West Bank Cafe have soldiered on and sacrificed to keep the Cafe afloat. Unfortunately, the challenges have become overwhelming and without our help, our beloved Cafe will close for good in late August.
There were many factors that have led to this situation, but the largest and most unjust was that The West Bank Cafe was overlooked for the RRF grant, which is the reason most restaurants were able to make it post-pandemic. To make matters worse, due to an unfair and ridiculous technicality they were also denied the SVOG. Either of these grants would have made it possible for The West Bank to flourish over the past three years. Being denied both has resulted in the current situation.
It is left up to us as a community to once again step up and take care of our own. The West Bank Cafe will turn 50 in four years, and we must make sure that we are able to toast Steve, eat risotto balls together on the day of the iconic venue’s golden anniversary.
The West Bank Café is more than a restaurant and performance space. So many of us have celebrated birthdays, weddings, opening nights, closing nights, Tony wins, Tony losses, and everything in between there. Everyone is treated like a VIP when they walk through those doors.
The West Bank is home to The Laurie Beechman Theater -a legendary venue that is as vital to the New York theater scene as any Broadway house or Non-profit theater. There are less and less rooms in Manhattan for artists to birth new work in a safe and supportive environment. The loss of the downstairs performance space at the West Bank would be devastating to the community.. The Laurie Beechman is more than a beloved cabaret, it is an important piece of New York City theatrical history.
It is the stage where Joan Rivers performed her final set. It is the room where the original cast of Sunday in the Park With George rehearsed. It is where the Tony Award-winning play Side Man debuted, where Aaron Sorkin’s first two works were produced, where Lewis Black and Rusty Magee cut their teeth, Where countless Oscar, Grammy, Emmy, Tony, and MAC Award-winning artists have developed new pieces. So many stars have not only played but have been born at the Laurie Beechman Theater.
What is more clear than ever is that this restaurant does not just belong to Steve and Janet, it belongs to all of us. It is truly our Westbank Cafe and I believe we can once again pull off a miracle TOGETHER.
