Are “We Buy Houses” Companies Legitimate?

The short answer is yes, but not all operate equally. Like most businesses, there are always some bad apples that can tarnish the reputation of legitimate business owners and home buyers. Our industry is no different so here is what to look out for:

  • If you get an offer sight unseen, chances are they are not reputable and intend on renegotiating once they see or inspect your home. Usually the day of settlement too!
  • If they promise to close in 2 weeks or less, they probably intend to renegotiate as well. Nobody can promise the title will be cleared by then.
  • If they put only $1 down, they also intend to renegotiate and walk away if you don’t. Are you seeing a trend already? 

It is their strategy! The thing we ask every client is “do you want the best offer or the best offer that you are comfortable will settle?” 

How First Choice Home Buyers Operates…

First Choice Home Buyers makes offers based on the most reliable, up to date market data, gathered the day of your appointment by one of our home consultants. We use data from the most trusted source, the MLS. You won’t ever get an offer based on what a free website says your home is worth. Our 15 years of experience in real estate has given us the confidence to make offers that we trust will get you cash at closing, so you do not have to stress. Once you say yes, we take over from there. We intend to make this as stress-free as possible and guarantee we get you what we agreed on. The bonus First Choice GUARANTEE is, if our offer does not work for you, we will give you other options that will. You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain. Better yet, here is our 4 step process:

  1. A quick phone call to determine how to help and schedule a walkthrough. (Ask about our Covid safe walkthrough process)
  2. Meet and quickly walk through the property to determine its current condition, give you our offer, and educate you on all of your options available, selling to us is not the only option you have.
  3. If we get a yes, we take over from there, you just wait for closing.
