Should I sell to an investor or an iBuyer?

  • by

One of the most convenient ways to sell a house is to sell to an investor or an iBuyer.

An investor is a person or company that buys properties to hold them as rental properties, or to renovate and flip them for a profit. An iBuyer is a company that uses technology to make quick cash offers.

So, how do the two compare and why might a homeowner prefer to sell to an investor rather than an iBuyer? Here are a few possible reasons:

  1. More flexibility and creativity in the terms of the sale: Investors may be more flexible with the terms of the sale, such as the closing date. While an investor may be able to get creative in their offer (for example by paying interest, or taking over an existing loan), an iBuyer will usually stick to a rigid process.
  2. Higher offer price: Investors may be willing to pay more for a property than an iBuyer because of their particular resources (for example, cheaper labor or better deals on materials) and especially when considering the fees that iBuyers charge.
  3. The home may not meet the iBuyer’s criteria: iBuyers generally look for homes that don’t need a lot of work because large renovations increase complexity and variability. An investor can handle these things because their analysis is not automated.
