We Buy Houses Stockton! We Buy Houses Sacramento, Modesto, Manteca and Lodi! It is our Battle cry. It’s in our mailers, our marketing materials, all of our presentations and of course our Websites.We Buy Houses Companies are for real but you have to vet them thoroughly. You need to ask them the tough questions. You need to ask them for Proof of Funds that includes a closing date.
On the surface, If you were to believe everything you’ve read then it stands to reason that EVERY “We Buy Houses” company is the same… RIGHT?
Well, Not Really.
Selling Your Stockton House Can Be A Quick And Simple Process. Give us 10 days to close FAST! RIGHT?
Well, Not Exactly.
What if that “We Buy House” company really doesn’t have any cash? Would that make a difference in their ability to close within 10 Days?
What if that same company (which may or may not be local) was unfamiliar with Title Company rules and guidelines regarding closings and the paperwork associated with closing quickly? Could that impact the time frame? One step further… what if the Title had one or more liens and the title Company needed to issue “Demand Payoffs”? Would that make a difference?
What if the Title Company asked the Buyer for a statement of information, asking them to prove who they were and who the real Buyers were? Could that impact your closing?
Of course they all can. As a homeowner that needs to sell an unwanted house fast, the last thing you want is someone claiming to be something they are not. The last thing you need is to accept an offer from someone who cant perform.
I know this because I have had to clean other buyers failures. I have had homeowners call me and tell me about their nightmares elongated time frames and even no shows for closings when selling their homes to Company A from the Bay area or a Franchisee B from a national UGLY House company’s. I literally received a call on a Monday and funded a transaction on Tuesday from such a homeowner that was left without a buyer at the closing table.
Why am I telling you this?
The Seller Beware. There are differences between companies and their ability to perform. Unfortunately on the Internet we may all look alike.
It doesn’t matter what industry you choose. It stands to reason that some companies are just better than others at what they do.
Have you thought about why?
- Commitment of Ownership
- Business Ethics
- Cash flow
- Good Business Decisions
- Commitment to Customer
Over the past several years, I have watched many would be companies come and go. All of them making similar promises, leaving the homeowner to figure out who to trust. With that said, no one can literally steal your house without paying for it , but they can waste precious time and money going through a lengthy process that will never bear the fruit of which they promise.
To make matters worse, we all have very similar We Buy Houses names. We all say generally the same things. We boast that we can “Buy your House for Cash and Close Quickly”.
Does it stand to reason that every one of them can do all of that?
All of the time?
So when choosing an I Buy or We Buy Houses company its the sellers job to make sure that they are for real.
Shouldn’t it be?
Choosing a Company that can Buy your House fast may be more important than the price, especially if they cant perform.
The truth is it has always been about the people that make a difference. At Westbrook REI I would like to earn your business based on my commitment to perform.
When you visit our website and the Website of our competitors. Don’t look at the flash. Look at the substance. Go to the About Us Page. Go to the company Info Page and if you can’t tell who the owner is. If you cant find a telephone number think twice about doing business there. Do they answer the phone or is it a recorded message. Is it a personal voice mail?
Because at the end of the day if you cant talk to them before you submit your information how are you going to find them after.
Finally, demand a face to face interview and then before you sign an agreement ask them for “Proof of Funds”. Ask them how long they have been buying properties and ask them for references regarding their performance. You may just be surprised at the responses.
At “Westbrook REI” we are the best at what we do because we work at it every day. We understand that a commitment to customer and a commitment to our business only happens with hard work. We have years of experience and a plan that we follow. We are a real company with real people that are committed to helping you achieve your goals.
