Are you going to list my home?
No. We are not real estate agents, and we are not interested in listing your home.
There are advantages to listing a house for sale with an agent, and depending on your situation, this might be the way to go.
If this is the best approach for your situation and you do not yet have an agent in mind, we would even be happy to recommend one for you.
Will you buy my house in as-is condition, or do I need to make sell ready repairs?
We buy houses in as-is condition and you do not need to make any repairs or improvements in order for us to purchase your home.
Homes we buy are often in need of repairs and updates such as the roof, foundation, flooring, plumbing issues, etc. You can sell your house fast, even if it needs a lot of work done!
Are you a wholesaler?
No. Local Cash Buyers is a cash investor, not a wholesaler. When you sell to us, there is no middleman. We are the only party involved in the transaction. There are no banks, no mortgage lenders, no ghost investors, and no agents. We buy houses and other properties to own them, not to flip them.
Wholesalers do not buy property directly. They establish an agreement to buy your home on behalf of another investor. We do not work with wholesalers. Learn more about wholesalers vs. cash buyers here.
Will the closing take place at a title company?
The closing for properties we purchase takes place at a title company.
Title companies are regulated in the State of Texas, and this ensures that both parties are protected.
Title companies verify the ownership of the property as well as provide escrow to make sure you, the property seller, receives the funds as per the agreement.
If we decide to accept your offer, how long before we get the money for the house?
We can close as quickly as 7 days from the date of the accepted offer.
The 7-day window is customary for the title company to conduct a title search and prepare the necessary documents.
What if I have a tenant in my house?
Dealing with difficult tenants can be tough, especially if you do not have a property management company. You may not have time and experience dealing with tenants, or you may live far away from the property.
Make it our problem — no need to worry about costly collection efforts or navigating an eviction process.
What if I am behind on my mortgage payments?
If you are behind on your payments, a lender might choose to proceed with foreclosure.
Selling your house and paying off the loan balance owed can help stop foreclosure, saving you credit.
If you are behind on your house payment and looking to sell, we can help. While we never recommend not making your payments, we are able to purchase your home even if you are past due on your mortgage.
You can still sell your house fast, even if you’re behind on mortgage payments!
What if I owe more than my house is worth?
In the event that you owe more than the value of your house – also known as being “upside-down” or “underwater” – you still have options. One of those options is a “short sale.”
A short sale involves selling your house for less than what you owe, with the bank or mortgage holder accepting a payoff short of the balance.
The short sale process is complicated, and most home-sellers are advised to get assistance from a professional. Depending on your situation, we can assist with a short sale, or recommend a trained professional at no cost to you.
