How To Sell Your House Fast?
Real estate investing has been around for some time, but surprisingly, we are frequently asked how the process works. If you are looking to sell your house with a minimum of stress and have cash in hand in the shortest amount of time, it remains the single best way to move forward. Allow us to take a moment and explain how the process works for you and to your benefit.
Step 1: Tell Us About the House You Want to Sell.
We usually like to know the basics such as, how many bedroom and bathrooms, does it have a basement, parking, how long you have had the property, its overall condition, the surrounding neighborhood, etc. Basically, you are providing us with all relevant and pertinent information that allows our appraisers to go to work and do their preliminary research. Our team will go over the information that you provide and determine if your home meets our buying criteria and if so, will set a price range for our cash offer. We then contact you to set up an appointment to meet with you and tour the house.
Step 2: Meet with Us and Let Us Tour Your House In Person
At this stage we will come out to meet with you and tour the property and conduct a short onsite inspection to assess its condition and determine the final value. Once the tour is completed, we present you with a full cash offer. A free, fair, and no obligation cash offer on your home, is usually delivered within 24 hours, which you are perfectly free to accept or decline.
Step 3: Closing - Your House is Sold.
Should you choose to move forward and accept our cash offer (which we know you will!), then we are off to closing. We usually close within a week or two, working with a local reputable title company, taking the property out of your hands and replacing it with cash, and in far less time than if you had gone with a traditional real estate agent and all that pesky staging, showing, offers, counteroffers, inspections, etc.
At We Buy Houses in Chicago, we buy homes in and around the Chicago area. Unlike traditional real estate agencies, we are not listing your house and looking for buyers. We ARE the buyers! And because we pay cash for homes, we are not dependent on lenders and can close quickly, which invariably works better for the homeowner’s schedule, especially if you want to move into your new home as soon as possible. Our business model puts the control of the process back in your hands, where it rightfully belongs.
Among the many advantages of selling your house to us, the single biggest perk is that you don’t have to go through the laborious process (and related expenses) of repairing or sprucing up your home. Some real estate agencies will require that you make major (read: expensive) repairs to your home before it can be listed. And of course, then the home must be maintained until a buyer is found. With We Buy Houses in Chicago, there are no fees involved, and you’re not saddled with the extra costs of preparing the home for market. We purchase the home as it sits, no matter the location, no matter the condition. We will make whatever repairs or upgrades are needed once we have taken ownership.
