Be honest with yourself first and foremost. Don’t try to price your property so that a cash buyer has no profit incentive. Maybe you’ll get lucky and find someone who needs to move fast and can pay cash and will become an owner occupant, but there are very few of those around. If you need to sell your house fast to a cash buyer, you need to assume that your buyer is an investor. If your property is in great shape, then maybe you can sell it at a slight discount to the market so that it’s attractive to cash buyers who can buy with little risk. If it is not in good condition, you need to take that into account when figuring out what you can expect to get from a cash buyer.

Setting your pricing expectations in a vacuum without looking at what else is for sale around you will probably lead you to disappointment and may reduce the chances that you are able to sell your Johnson County, Texas home quickly to a cash buyer. We, for example, will make one offer that we think is fair to all parties, and that’s it. If you set your expectations too high, you may burn through potential buyers, and, upon realizing what the market for cash buyers will bear, change your mind after your potential buyers have moved on and bought something else. If time is not on your side, then you’re going to have to accept that you’re almost certainly not get full price for your Johnson County, Texas home from a cash buyer.

It’s better to be prepared early than to burn through prospective buyers and through what precious little time you have.
