Considering selling your home? Lets talk about some advantages and disadvantages
Our process isn’t for everyone. We know that not every person looking to sell their house needs to sell quickly or that accepting a cash offer for their home is the best option. If you have already spoken to an agent about your home in Henrico and are willing to wait through the costs, this process isn’t for you. However, if you find yourself worrying about how soon you will need to close, or are facing financial distress, it is time to consider other alternatives. Here are some common scenarios we work with:
It is not uncommon to be the heir of an estate and then have no idea what you will do with the property. Not everyone leaves behind a house in perfect condition, in fact, it is more likely that the house will require thousands of dollars in repairs and weeks of sorting through belongings. If you don’t need the property or maybe you don’t even want it, the time and energy to clean it up just isn’t worth your time.
This can be a tricky and emotional time. No one wants to worry about who will pay for what and who is responsible for which repairs. You are most likely already feeling the pressure to move on quickly. Rather than add one more headache to your plate of things to worry about, it may be better to just rip the band-aid off and close quickly to avoid further fighting.
Have you been fighting to pay your outstanding debt and cannot keep up with the crippling weight? If you are trying to avoid bankruptcy and you don’t want or need to keep your house, there is no reason to delay. Simply put, we can close within 7 days and your offer will be presented in cash. If you are facing true financial distress, and have no need for your current property, selling your house quickly is likely your best option.
This is an easy one. Are you in a situation where you have a large plot of land, or maybe even one that is less than an acre in size? Not all the property we buy is a complete house. We have worked with several clients that are looking to sell off unwanted land that they have no use for. If you are looking to sell raw land, we can work with you.
This is our most common business interaction. Did you move before you had time to sell and thought renting would be a good idea? Or maybe you are doing a friend or family member a favor? We offer several options that allow your tenants to stay in place and save you from looking like the bad guy. Being a tired landlord is exhausting and if you are out of state, it can amplify the stress. There are several ways to keep tenants in place while allowing you to walk away from the situation that don’t involve eviction.
Facing something else?
While these are the most common situations homeowners face when evaluating their options to sell their home, this list is not extensive. If you have already spoken to an agent in Henrico about selling your home and they have given you a laundry list of repairs you cannot afford, but you don’t fit the typical scenario, we will work with you to find a solution while also offering cash for your home.
Your property is important to you in one way or another, parting ways is never easy. Our commitment to you is that you will walk away feeling confident you made the right choice and received a fair deal. Our quick process helps you sell your house fast and close on the date you set in as little as 7 days.
What are the disadvantages?
Let’s talk about the disadvantages to selling your home for cash in general terms. Simply put, selling your house for cash does not mean you will receive market value. Whether you work with us or another real estate investor, if you want market value, you need to sell with an agent. A cash offer also doesn’t mean no one can back out. While we do our due diligence and ensure we can close on your house, some companies may put a nice number in front of you, just to change it or even back out of the deal later. If you choose to work with someone else, make sure they aren’t giving you a number just to hold you in a contract.
If you aren’t sure if selling with an agent will yield a higher return, or if a fast, cash offer is the better investment, talk to us and we can help you factor in the pros and cons of each. Remember, after paying commissions, closing fees, and rehab costs, factoring in the wait time, going with an agent doesn’t always guarantee you are walking away with more money. Often times, the return you get is comparable depending on the amount of work you have to do.
Advantages to selling quickly
If you are in a tight situation, there are a lot of advantages to selling your house for cash. While we cannot speak to the advantages of every investor, we can tell you why working with us has its perks. For starters, you will not spend a dime during the entire process of selling your house with us. We cover all closing expenses and make the repairs needed ourselves. There is no factoring in commission fees and you won’t have to worry about open houses every weekend where strangers walk through and suck up hours of your time. Selling with an agent can take up to 30+ days to find a buyer and even longer to close. If you are dealing with a situation we listed earlier, you likely don’t have the energy to deal with all that pressure and uncertainty.
Another benefit is that we are the buyers! This means you aren’t waiting around for us to find someone to buy your property, you are working directly with us. No open houses, no waiting for a contract. Quick, easy, done.
If you are still unsure, you can give us a call and we will walk you through your options. Simply having a conversation puts you at no obligation to work with us, but it can give you peace of mind knowing that you took the first step in bettering your situation.

Need more time to close?
You may not want to make the repairs, but you also don’t want to move for another few months. While some people are ready to get going, others may need some more time to either look for a new place to live, or wait until after a special occasion. Not a problem. Like we mentioned before, we know everyone’s situation is different, let us close on your schedule. Whether you need everything taken care of and done within a week, or a few months, we will walk you through the process and be available at every step of the way.
No matter when you want to close, the process of selling with us will be the same, with the only difference being that we will set the closing date that you choose and give you the time you need. Whether you want to go through and clear out the belongings, or you want to have a few more memories, if you aren’t in a rush we will work on your schedule. This is a great option if you have time, but the cost of repairs is still too high.
So, what is the process?
First, let’s have a conversation. Tell us about your property and what we can do to help you. This is a simple phone call where you tell us about your situation and why you are looking to sell quickly. We will be able to tell you right away if we are able to help with the sale of your home. We will not string along a deal that we do not feel we can fully commit to and in some cases we may advice that you try selling the traditional route with an agent first.
After the initial phone conversation, we will set up a time to come and see the property in person. While we can give you an offer without seeing the property, an in-person appointment allows us to give you a more accurate, and usually higher offer. Virtual deals often have assumed risk factored into the price, and you might end up walking away with less money. Having us come out to the property allows us to properly assess the condition of your home and give you a fair cash offer and a quick closing date.
Finally, you will receive a no obligation, cash offer for your home at the best value we can give. Sometimes the full cash offer isn’t satisfactory for some clients. In these instances, we offer alternative solutions to purchasing your house for cash that may involve long term monthly payments, while still allowing you to walk away quickly. We will be available every step of the way to ensure that you are happy with how the sale of your home or land is being handled.
Having a conversation does not obligate you to proceed with our process, but it will give you an idea of the quality care you can expect. By filling out the form below, someone from our team will reach out to you within 24 hours. The more information you are willing to share about your property, the better equipped we are to help you.
Our mission is to help those in the community that have been in distress for too long and need to either move on quickly, or simply hear our advice. Not having the luxury of being in the position to sell with an agent is frustrating, but that doesn’t mean you should be treated with less respect.
