One of the biggest benefits of selling your home to a cash buyer is the speed that the process moves at. When you sell your home by listing it, you have to play a waiting game in almost every case. You have to wait for a potential buyer to become interested and make you an offer. Then you have to wait for them to get all of their financial paperwork in order and get their mortgage funded. Then after all of this has been done you can finally sell your home. This whole process can take many months, which is why it should be avoided. When you sell to a cash buyer there is no listing and waiting, and you don't have to wait for someone to get a mortgage since they are making you a cash offer. You simply contact the company you are dealing with, they make you an offer, and in many cases, you can close in a matter of days.
