Today’s homeowners have been conditioned to believe that the Process of selling a home is complicated, time consuming and costly. And you know what? According to conventional wisdom they are right. But in my post today I am going to BUCK conventional wisdom and show you how you can
My name is Peter Westbrook. I am a real estate investor based in Stockton CA and We Buy Houses For Cash In Stockton, Sacramento and Modesto. There are clearly two distinct worlds in real estate; the one where the cash buyers can quickly purchase a house in a matter of 10 days or less and the second world that involves real estate agents, mortgage brokers, home inspectors, real estate appraisers and lawyers.
So what is the difference between the two beside the number of people, the time and money? The Financing. In life there is an axiom… if you want to know the truth about anything just follow the money? Of course there are many iterations in between these two worlds but for our purposes I am going to illustrate them and focus on how uncomplicated the process of selling an unwanted house can really be.
A Little Real Estate History and the Process of Buying and Selling Houses
The real estate industry is not as complex as most people would make it out to be. Each transaction may have it’s unique complexities, but those issues are usually vested in what each of the parties in the transaction really want. In the old days it was just buyers and sellers. The sellers wanted $X and the Buyers were willing to pay $Y. They eventually agreed on a price and went to the land office and recorded their transaction in the form of a deed. In it’s most simple form, way back when, there were no real estate agents and mortgage brokers to complicate matters. It was a Seller and a Buyer and the Land office and sometimes an attorney. But then again, the transactions were mostly cash and because there was no financing involved the paperwork was generally a purchase and sale agreement and finally a deed.
Soon, the world changed, economies grew and people moved. Real estate transactions became very common, financing became the preferred method of home purchases and people that wanted to buy and sell their property embraced the notion of simplifying an already pretty simple process to bring buyers and sellers together. Cottage industries grew and flourished to support an industry that has pretty much complicated everything for the average person. Because new parties (real estate agents, mortgage brokers, attorneys and Title Companies) were interjected into the PROCESS, new rules, regulations and tons of paperwork were created to protect the buyers and sellers from the predators that would seek to otherwise perpetrate fraud.
In today’s world, the actual buying and selling of real estate is complicated by the inclusion of all of these people and the financing required for most transactions. So the complexities of the real estate transaction have become more technical and complicated because of all of the parties involved with each transaction.
It is pretty easy to illustrate what I am talking about as most homeowners make one or two purchases in their lifetime and the “Process” that they see is pretty much the same for each transaction. Unfortunately, the typical buyer and seller have been conditioned to believe that unless they have all of these people involved in a transaction something can go wrong. When in reality the different parties involved are there, by design, to make the process as smooth as possible, but, unfortunately they equally complicate the steps and they are the reasons that most transactions fall apart. In every step of the process below, there is the potential for someone at each step to kill the transaction.
- You Need to Qualify for a loan
- You need to find a house (You hire a real estate agent)
- You Shop for Houses
- You make an offer on a House
- There may be a Counter Offer and You and the Buyer Come to an Agreement on the terms
- You Order an Inspection
- You request or demand repairs
- The seller agrees or declines to repairs
- Your Lender orders an Appraisal
- Your Bank places conditions on lending you money
- Your Bank gives you a final Interest rate and monthly payment
- You Go to the title Company and Sign Papers (Lots of Papers)
- You’re a Homeowner (You get the keys and garage door opener)
By the way this all works great if you are in a position to buy or sell the prettiest house on the block.

You might have taken a job and need to move quickly. You could be divorcing, or the house might be in probate. The house might have been damaged by fire, water or even trashed by vandals or tenants. There could be one of many other situations, but whatever the reason, if you need a quick sale we can provide just that.
How to Sell your Stockton House for Cash
The most obvious advantage is that you get cash in your hand very quickly. Companies such as ours have either cash in the bank or access to huge funds very easily so your payment is guaranteed to be fast. The process itself is as simple as it could be;
- Simply contact us via telephone or email.
- I will personally come out to view and to value the property.
- Once I have confirmed the value and you have agreed to our offer,
- We will set it up with the title company and you get paid.
I know that you can appreciate that we are in business to make a profit and it is true that you will receive somewhat less than you might if you sold your house through a real estate agent.

- We will buy almost any property, no matter what its condition.
- There are no real estate fees or commissions

- There are no One time charges whatsoever.
- There are no lawyer’s fees.
- Selling through a real estate agent usually takes 3– 6 months: with us it’s often as little as seven days.
- If selling through an agent you will still have to make your mortgage payments until the sale is completed. These can be considerable.
- You also have to pay your local taxes and insurance throughout this time.
- You will probably need to make repairs before putting your house on the market with a real estate agent.
- Many buyers offer a price, but then drop it by $5,000 or more after the Home Inspection report.
- With Westbrook REI Your sale is guaranteed. National statistics show that when selling through a real estate agent, one in three sales falls through.
- There is only one or two viewings. With a real estate agent you have people constantly parading through your home.
- If you are selling form another city, because you have inherited the house, arranging viewings is far more difficult.
- There are no “For Sale” signs outside the house.
- If you are distance selling there is always the possibility that thieves may realize the house is uninhabited and break in.
