Roofstock is disrupting the real estate industry by connecting buyers interested in investment properties directly with sellers. But you may not be aware of everything the sellers are getting out of the revolutionary service. Getting started in real estate, or advancing your current real estate investing portfolio, is easy with Roofstock, here’s why.

If you’ve already looked into selling a property or have gone through the process before, you surely can feel the headache of all the associated costs of the usual property sale fine print. It’s not just about the dollars and cents either. Roofstock lets you take control of the process yourself, fielding offers from people all around the globe, not just the usual lookie-loos not looking for a new home but really only curious about how their neighbors redid their patio.

The process is streamlined and easy — not full of arcane rules, confusing side work and, as we mentioned before, unexpected expenses. You submit your listing, then sit back while Roofstock does the due diligence on the sale prep, including lining up the inspection, ordering the preliminary title report and compiling all the critical documents you need. This multi-point Roofstock review process acts as a gold seal to reassure potential buyers that the listing is legit and that the property is a quality one. All you have to do, then, is greenlight the listing — and let Roofstock use its expertise to design and publish a listing optimized to attract interested buyers.

Then the fun begins: You let the offers roll in, pick the buyer you like and let Roofstock manage the whole closing step by step. You’ll have a signed purchase agreement and a lot more money in your bank account, and you’ll be able to do it all online. Do you have tenants in place? You don’t have to kick them out or disrupt their lives or — and key point here — lose rental property income while you arrange a sale.

Save money, save time and save yourself the headache by selling your property to the world through Roofstock.
