Buy My Home
"Man wears 'buy my home' sandwich board in desperate attempt to sell his house." This headline caught my eye as I skimmed through a local paper. The story went on to explain how the homeowner had been trying to sell his house to stop foreclosure. He claimed the sandwich board seemed to work for people trying to find work, so he thought he would try it as a last ditch effort to save his home and credit.
Perhaps there will be a new market for "buy my home" sandwich boards. That wouldn't be a bad thing considering how many people are losing their jobs. But, do homeowners really have to engage in this type of drastic advertising? The answer is no!
I buy houses all the time, but I have never bought one from a person advertising on a street corner. Instead, I make it easy for people to let me know when they need to sell their house quick. In fact, you can submit your property for free via the we buy houses form on this website. It only takes a few minutes and I'll get back with you in 48 hours or less.
I've seen a lot of crazy "buy my home" strategies of late. From chartered bus tours to offering freebies like a vacation or iPod, sellers are coming up with creative ways to get their property noticed. Unfortunately, the market is saturated with foreclosures, bank owned homes, short sales and probate real estate which people need to sell quickly.
Many sellers are willing to accept considerably less than the property is worth just to get out from under their mortgage. Others have obtained short sale approval and need to find a qualified buyer or lose their home to foreclosure. Some need to move right away because of job transfers or aging parents who require additional care.
The thing is few of these people are tapping into the rich resource of selling house for cash to private investors. Instead, they are seeking out buyers using traditional methods or wacky unconventional techniques which have yet to be put to the test.
Whatever your reason for needing to sell your house quick, I might be able to offer my assistance. I'm currently looking for real estate properties located in southern California. However, if you have a great deal on property located elsewhere, I invite you to submit your property as well. I have a list of several thousand investors so if you have a house of interest, I will be happy to share it with my network.
One piece of advice I can offer right now is don't delay submitting property information. There are millions of homeowners just like you who need to sell their home right away. Unfortunately, we can't help everyone, but if you take action today you will be one step ahead of everyone else.
