Buying a House As is is Nothing new… Buying Houses without Inspections however…?
When I was young I loved the circus, there was always so much action everywhere. You had the center ring with everything going on, then there were the side shows… there was always something to see. I mention it because selling a house is much like a Circus and if you buy a house without an inspection, every once in a while you’re going to have to put a circus tent over a house that has termites. I know because over the past 10 years I have had to fumigate at least 8 houses. That comes out to less than 5%. That is a lot of houses and a lot of families and never once did I ever back out of a purchase or say that I regretted any purchase for an inspection item.
In my business you have to take the good with the bad, so when I say that we buy houses with out inspections, it is because it’s true. We also pay closing cost and we dont charge a commission to buy your house.
Real Estate Agents Don’t Buy Houses
I am not a real estate agent, so when I put on my Stockton Real Estate Investor hat, I dont represent anyone’s interest except my own. I am upfront about that. That is a huge difference between me an a real estate agent. The second difference is that real estate agents Do NOT Buy Houses. Heck, I am not even sure that they really sell them. In fact I know that they dont, because most can’t negotiate a contract (they dont have the authority) although I have seen some of them try, and the rest are not convincing you to do something that you haven’t already decided to do. Sure the good ones become experts and advisers, but sales people… I not convinced. Maybe the best actual portrayal is that the best real estate agents are just really good marketeers.
Regardless of what I believe or anyone else believes, buying houses is distinctly different than selling them and when a buyer says that they will pay cash and that they will not order inspections, that is valuable. It is that simple. When I buy Houses in Stockton, Sacramento or Modesto, I will always error on the side of the homeowner. I do so because you’re providing me with the opportunity and it’s just to easy for me to be honest. It is easy for me to say that no one house is going to have a negative defining effect on what I do. It’s is just to easy for me to just walk away rather than create a problem. So when I make an offer on a house you can take it to the bank.
In life, the old adage is, that there are two certainties; Death and Taxes. If you are selling a house, there many more certainties and in this article and Video I want to focus on at least three that are the most common. Inspections, Appraisals and Disclosures. Hence the title of my latest Video and Blog Post… ” We Buy Houses Without Inspections Stockton, Sacramento and Modesto“.
Every time I tell someone that I get the same strange look. Like what is the catch? Are you CRAZY? No, I am not crazy. In fact as Sheldon on says on the Big Bang Theory, I am NOT Crazy, My Mother had me tested. What I am however is a cash home buyer in Stockton with a lot of experience and when I buy a house in Stockton I know pretty much what I am getting into.
What I know about buying houses may surprise you
There is a lot that I know. I know that if your house was built over 70 years ago and it has never been updated that I am going to have to do a massive amount of work. I also know that you as the seller are not going to sell your house to me if I just low ball you an offer. No, it’s not because I am afraid that I am going to offend you. It is because the market is very competitive and if I am determined to buy a house, even if you are unrealistic about what you think it is worth, I am going to respect that by offering the most that I can. It is that simple. I dont operate off of percentages. I dont get paid commissions. I get paid when I do my job and add value to a house that someone else recognizes. It is really that simple.
