Common Real Estate Problems Homesellers Encounter

Nobody’s Buying

This is one of the most frustrating experiences a homeowner can have. You need to sell your home, but nobody wants to buy it. This can be for several reasons. It is possible that your home is priced too high. We understand that you want to get top dollar for your home, but unfortunately, buyers have the opposite idea, leading to you being unable to settle on a price. It might also be that your home is in need of major repairs that you don’t have the money to take care of right now, and buyers are looking for a move-in ready home.

Whatever the reason is that people are not buying your home, every month is another mortgage payment, another HOA payment, another home insurance payment, another month of property taxes… the list goes on. Maybe you find yourself having to commute hours each day to that new job because you can’t relocate before you sell your home. Soon three months have passed, then six, then more. Meanwhile, the leak in your roof keeps getting worse or the foundation sinks deeper. It seems to be a never-ending game.

Thankfully, The Home Buying Company in Dallas-Fort Worth can help. Most people don’t have the luxury of letting their home sit on the market for six months. We specialize in making fair cash offers that can get a home off of your hands in a matter of days. We assume the hassle of trying to sell your home for you so you can move on with your life.

You Don’t Have Time To Wait For Inspections

If someone makes an offer on your home, you are still not in the clear. Likely, unless they’re a Dallas home buying company like ours, your home will be in escrow for thirty days while inspections are performed.

In most real estate transactions, an offer is made with the condition that all necessary inspections will be performed and passed. If it turns out you have a termite problem or there’s mold in the basement, the buyer has the opportunity to drop out, leaving you right back where you started. They can also make a new offer providing that you fix the issues before they buy or with the repair costs deducted from the buying price. Either way, you’re left with a deal that is less than desirable.

Because we are a property investment company, we understand that we might be buying a home with some issues. As a seller, you are obligated to tell us about any issues you are aware of when we make an offer. However, we perform our own inspection when we have our initial consultation and make our offer based on our findings. This eliminates the need to wait for an inspector to be available and ensures that our transaction moves as quickly as possible.

You Can’t Afford The Additional Fees

Most often, sellers are responsible for paying the buyer’s agent’s commission fees. These typically account for about 6% of the total sale price of the home. That means if your home sells for $200,00, you’re responsible for $12,000 in agent fees.

In addition to the agent’s fees, you will be responsible for closing costs. This can include title company fees, surveyor costs, insurance, loan processing, and other odds and ends. These costs can vary but typically range from 1-4% of the total purchase price, meaning another $2,000-8,000 on top of the agent fees for that $200,000 home.

With The Home Buying Company in Dallas-Fort Worth, you don’t have to worry about any of those fees. The cash we offer is the cash you’ll receive if you accept our offer; no fees, tricks, or hassles.

You Don’t Want To Bother With Showings

Showing your home while trying to sell it is a big hassle. You have to open your home to numerous strangers and, many times, those selling their houses don’t have the time or energy to make their home “presentable” for strangers. This is especially difficult if you have inherited a home from a relative and are too busy taking care of your own home to worry about cleaning up a home you don’t even plan on living in.

With The Home Buying Company, we have seen homes in any and all conditions. Our purpose of seeing your home isn’t to judge whether or not there’s dog hair on the sofa. It’s to make sure we are aware of any major structural or cosmetic issues with the home so we can make a fair cash offer. There’s no need to clean up, make repairs, or do anything. We are cash home buyers who are happy to work with those who are selling their home as-is.

You Can’t Make The Necessary Repairs

We have already touched on this, but many times selling a home requires you to make necessary repairs first. This is especially true if there are structural issues, termites, or mold. However, you might want to stay in your home, but it is unsafe to do so in its current condition and you can’t afford to make the necessary repairs at this time.

We know this is a stressful situation, but saying “goodbye” and finding a better living situation might be the best option at this point. When you work with The Home Buying Company in Dallas-Fort Worth and the surrounding areas, we can provide you with the cash you need to find a more livable situation, whether that means renting a place for a while or buying another home that is in better condition or in a more affordable area.

Why Choose Us?

We know we’re not the only cash home buyers in the area. So, why choose us?

We buy and sell in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. This is currently known as a “seller’s market.” This means that average homes do not spend very long on the market compared to other areas of the country. According to Zillow, the average time that a home spends on the market for Dallas-Fort Worth is 71 days. This hot market means a win for both of us. Here’s why:

National cash-for-home buyers purchase homes in any and every market. This means they are taking a larger risk overall with their purchases because there might not be anybody to whom they can resell the home after they purchase it. To offset that risk, they lowball clients who are desperate to sell. For many reasons, these national companies are the reason cash home buyers have a bad reputation.

As a small, local property investment company, we are in a great market and can offer you a fair price for your home because we know that, most likely, we will be able to improve the property and resell it in a small window of time. If we don’t need to make improvements or repairs, then we can take the time we need to find the right buyer. There’s not as much risk involved for us in this desirable area because so many people want to move to DFW, allowing us to confidently offer you a price that works for both of us.

We also know that our reputation depends on you having a great experience with us. We aren’t here to take advantage of a few homeowners and skip town. We are here to establish ourselves as reputable home buyers in the DFW area. We are dedicated to ensuring we are known for our honesty, integrity, and servitude, and that all starts with our initial consultation and offer.

The best part is that there is never any obligation to accept our offer. Receiving an offer is completely free and if you choose to decline, we’ll be on our way and wish you the best. If you accept our offer, we’ll get the paperwork moving to complete the transaction as quickly as possible. Unlike traditional real estate agents or even some other cash-for-homes companies, we don’t take any kind of commission fee. No expensive inspections, no appraisal fees, and no repair negotiations. The offer you see is the money you’ll receive.
