Bad Situations We Help Resolve
If you're facing any of the following situations, we'll buy your house within 3 to 30 days:
When a homeowner starts getting threatening letters from their bank about overdue house payments, foreclosure is just around the corner. The lender demands quick payment or else. A homeowner with a run down or underwater house and no money is in a tough position. How can they satisfy the bank without losing everything in the process?
For homeowners in a financial crunch, paying the bank every month can appear to be more important than paying their annual property tax bill. But the county will eventually put a tax lien on the house and set a sale date. How can a property owner avoid losing whatever equity they have in their home just to pay a tax bill?
Inheriting a property in Houston TX after the death of someone close to you often comes with unwanted complications. The probate process takes time, and you can be saddled with outstanding debts, costly repairs, and overwhelming legal matters. Selling an inherited property while dealing with the pain of the loss is both heavily taxing on your mental wellbeing and your budget.
It can be hard to know what to do about selling a house with a problem renter in it. Selling a rental property in Houston TX is usually a time consuming and lengthy ordeal. If you have difficult tenants, they may leave the house dirty for viewings or even refuse to open the door to potential buyers.
If you’re selling your Houston home, the last thing you want to do is spend money fixing it up. Some conditions require extensive and costly repairs to remedy, and sometimes even after the problem is fixed, the house is still tainted in the eyes of buyers. Cash for Houses Houston TX lets homeowners skip to the payout.
Couples going through a divorce don’t want to spend any more time together than what is absolutely necessary. But selling the family home can take months. Moreover, as the house must be included in the division of all marital property, selling the home is only one of many time-consuming and stressful tasks when dividing assets.
That new job opportunity on the other side of Texas will undoubtedly solve many financial problems. But selling a house fast is ordinarily difficult. And if the new employer doesn’t help with moving expenses, a new problem is created. With all the other relocating costs, how is a homeowner expected to pay both rent and a house payment?
If you’ve just had a problem that needs much money to resolve, you might not have anticipated how quickly a big house can eat up a savings account. You may not have time to wait around for your unaffordable home to sell so that you can get into something smaller. In this case, you need someone who would buy your property quickly.
Whatever the reason, when property values in a neighborhood decrease drastically, criminal activity tends to increase. And what was once a great neighborhood becomes a place where nobody wants to live. Selling a house in an undesirable area of Houston can appear to be an impossible task.

I want to sell my house fast, but how fast can I do it in Houston TX?

But if you sell your house to Cash for Houses Houston TX, you will be amazed at our speed. From the time you accept our cash offer to the time we close is 3 to 30 days. Regardless of where you’re located in Houston, our normal sales transaction takes an average of 1.5 weeks.
How do these “we’ll buy your house fast, for cash” companies work?
Cash house buyers pay cash for houses that need to be sold quickly or have problems that the owners can’t or won’t fix.
Companies that buy houses know that most of their sellers don’t have the time to wait around for the right buyer. Investors do everything quickly so that a seller can generally have their money in just a few days.
Investors also pay cash for homes in any condition. They buy houses at discounted prices, intending to resell them for a profit. Whether an investor fixes up the property depends on how they plan to resell it.
If, for example, an investor buys most of the houses in a neighborhood, they could want only the land. And they won’t put any money in a house that will likely be torn down to make way for some type of development.
In other cases, an investor will fix all the house’s problems and sell it at market value or rent the property to other people.
I want to sell my house with problems. How can I sell a bad property?
I want to sell my house with problems. How can I sell a bad property?
If your house has a lot of serious problems, you can try to find a Realtor, or you can try to sell it yourself. But that’s the hard way.
What realtor wants to sell a house that is:
- in a neighborhood with a drug dealer on every corner?
- about to face foreclosure?
- next door to an old car collector who keeps the junkers parked in the backyard?
- just plain old and ugly?
And if it’s difficult to find a real estate agent who wants to sell your house, how much harder would it be to try to sell it yourself? The typical buyer doesn’t want to pay for problems.
The easy way to sell a house with serious problems is to contact a real estate investor. The investor doesn’t care about the house’s location or condition. They buy houses AS IS.
How can I find a home investor when I need to sell my Houston property ASAP, for cash?
It’s not difficult to come up with a list of real estate investors in Houston. All you have to do is type “we buy ugly houses for cash in Houston, Texas” in the search box of any search engine.
It is difficult, though, to sort out the reputable investors from the fraudulent ones. Be aware of some of the ways that scammers operate:
- Instead of making a straightforward offer upfront, they manipulate you. The investor might entice you initially with: “You have a nice house here! We might be able to give you $$$.” But after disqualifying the house from their teaser estimate, the investor actually offers a much lower price.
- They are “too easy” to deal with. For example: “We don’t need to look at your house. We’ll give you $$$, sight unseen. Does that work for you?” And they move quickly to get your personal information or some of your money to secure the sale.
- You are asked to sign one document after another until you put your signature on a contract that doesn’t resemble the deal you agreed to.
What does a home seller need to do to sell their house As Is?
If your house is in poor condition and you don’t want to spend the money to fix it, you’ll have a difficult time finding a real estate agent willing to list it. Realtors know that most buyers don’t want a house with a lot of problems. And why would a realtor go to all that work when the commission on a fixer-upper is small because of the house’s lower value?
Selling it yourself is an option, but also a lot of work. To sell a house AS IS, you must:
- Know what other houses like yours (but in good condition) are selling for in your market area.
- Pay a home inspector to find any problems that you don’t already know about.
- Calculate your asking price based on current market value minus cost of repairs.
- Market the house.
- Show the house.
- Disclose problems to potential buyers.
- Negotiate a final sales price with a buyer.
- Make sure all the necessary disclosure documents are signed.
The easiest way to sell a fixer-upper is to sell it to a real estate investor. You don’t have to make any repairs. You don’t even have to clean it up after you move out. An investor will pay you cash for your home—in any condition. They take full responsibility for all the problems with the house.
How to make the sale of my house faster in the currently slow market of Houston TX?
There is both a hard way and an easy way to sell a house quickly in a slow market. The hard way is to:
- Fix all the problems in the house.
- Update the house to compete with other similar homes for sale.
- Enhance the property’s curb appeal.
- Professionally stage the house.
- Set the asking price lower than competing homes.
- Market the house with professional real estate photography.
- Advertise intensely.
And there’s the easy way:
- Meet with a reputable real estate investor.
- Expect a cash offer within 24 hours.
- Expect the cash at closing, typically within just a few days.
- In the meantime, you don’t have to fix anything, and you don’t have any paperwork to complete.
How high are cash offers investors give for houses?
Investors buy houses in any condition. Consequently, a cash house buyer:
- Does not inspect a property as thoroughly as a licensed home inspector.
- Does not compare bids from multiple contractors for repairs to the house.
- Does not estimate, down to the penny, their costs of reselling a property.
Because they work with general estimates, the investor must buy property cheap enough that if everything goes wrong, they can still make a decent profit.
To come up with a cash offer, an investor estimates what they can get for the house. They subtract their known costs plus an allowance for any unexpected financial losses plus overhead and profit. The investor's cash offer is based on this number.
I need to sell my house to pay the lien on it. How can I sell my home with the lien attached?
If your house doesn’t have a clear title, take care of the debt against if you can. It’s nearly impossible to find a buyer that will buy a property with a lien attached.
But if you can’t pay off the debt, three options are available:
- If you can pay a portion of the indebtedness, negotiate a payment plan with the party who issued the lien. In some cases, they will remove the lien from your house, if you show good faith.
- Ask the buyer to assume the lien in exchange for a lower sales price. But even if you find such a buyer, they will have to secure any loan with some other collateral. No bank will loan money on the house without a clear title.
- Sell the home to a real estate investor. When you accept the investor’s cash offer, they assume all responsibility for settling any debts against the house.
I want to sell my vacant house in Houston TX. What should I do to have it sold sooner?
Selling a vacant home has some additional challenges.
Taking that new job across the country may have left your house completely empty. Without any furniture or decorations, most buyers have difficulty seeing an empty house as a home. Although it’s a significant expense, hiring a staging company to stage your house will help attract a buyer.
When a house is empty, its problems are magnified:
- Cracks or holes in the walls are clearly visible without any wall decorations to cover them up.
- Sagging floors are very noticeable without any furniture.
- The slightest bit of moisture in a crawl space or basement can cause an empty house to smell musty.
Unless the problems with your house are fixed, it could sit on the market indefinitely. If you are too far away to manage the repairs, someone you trust must supervise the repair process in your absence.
If you want to avoid this hassle, contact a cash house buyer. As soon as you accept their offer, any problems with a vacant home become their problems.
What options can I choose from if I want to sell a house privately, without a Realtor?
There are two ways to sell a house without a real estate agent:
- Sell it yourself.
- Sell it to a real estate investor.
If you have the time and money, selling the house yourself will net you the most profit. You have the potential to sell your home for its fair market value, without all the costs of using a realtor, if you have the necessary knowledge and skills to sell a real estate property.
But there’s a lot of work in a FSBO (For Sale by Owner) sale. You have to:
- Fix all the problems with the house that would deter the average buyer.
- Set a realistic asking price for the home.
- Take care of all the marketing.
- Stage the home for showings.
- Spruce up the exterior and landscaping to improve the curb appeal.
- Show the home to potential buyers.
- Negotiate with buyers.
- Take care of all the paperwork.
When you sell to a company that buys houses, you only have to accept their cash offer. You don’t have to do any of the things enumerated above.
