Why VA Homebuyers Are Premium Buyers
If your home is on the market, you shouldn’t be ignoring VA buyers. These are some of the best buyers out there, and there are three reason why.
So many home sellers are conditioned to think that VA buyers are somehow inferior because they’re buying with 0% down, but you shouldn’t adopt this same attitude. While other home sellers continue to ignore these buyers, you can sell quickly and with minimal hassle by dealing with them.
There are three reasons, in particular, you should consider doing business with a VA buyer.
First, they are very real and very motivated. A VA buyer moving to San Diego because they’ve been stationed here is moving here and moving now. They’re literally ordered to live here, so they’re not messing around about buying a home.
Second, their pre-approval is rock solid. Their job isn’t disappearing and their income isn’t changing, so you don’t have to worry about either of these pitfalls potentially putting the transaction in jeopardy once you’re in escrow. A VA loan that gets pre-approved is genuinely pre-approved and ready to go.
Third, they don’t let the small stuff get in the way. They’re used to getting their hands dirty, so to speak, and they typically have a can-do attitude. That means they won’t get spooked by a needed repair that comes up during the home inspection, for example.
Speaking from my own experience, my team sold over 300 homes in 2018, and the transactions involving VA loans got done quicker and with less hassle than the other deals because of these three reasons. Also, it’s commonly known that VA loans are the most likely to close within a 21-day time frame.
At the end of the day, what difference does it make how much a buyer puts down as long as the money you ask for gets deposited into your bank account at the day of closing with the least amount of hassle?
