I have not used this service so I can't tell you if it's good or bad, but I am going to look into "Home Coin" the next time I am ready sell - homecoin.com. Make your home look like a Builder's model home, take many outstanding photos, and your home will sell itself if the price is correct. Also remember there is a way that you live in a home and a way that you sell a home - Buyers don't want to have 'vision', so keep it squeaky clean and perfect while it's on the market to get top dollar. When that great offer comes in, make sure your buyer is qualified and can close the transaction. Ask to see actual bank statements/evidence of funds required to close the purchase, and if your buyer requires a mortgage, require evidence of solid financing APPROVAL from a credible lending institution.... more

They have no intention of taking over your financial and legal responsibility.... more

As a buyer, I totally agree with the comments about offering a flooring allowance. Yes, dark carpets are a bit of a turn off in LR/DR, but when I see that the seller recently installed new carpet, that's even more of a negative. I prefer hard wood and now since the sellers already paid for carpet, I have to rip it out and I feel they are less likely to negotiate on price. I see the flooring allowance as a win-win: you spend less, I spend less, and I get what I want.... more
