Let me give you a few pointers.
Choose a company that buys houses as is and means it. While a lot of house buying companies advertise they buy houses in any condition, this is not really the case. A lot of these companies only use this line to get people to the door. Once they have a seller take their bait, they require all sorts of conditions before they actually buy the house. When talking to house buying companies, make sure they are willing to buy your house as is – no if’s, no but’s, no conditions.
Choose a company which has a good track record of closing deals fast. Many sellers don’t have the luxury of time when selling their houses. Whether the reason is foreclosure, relocation or whatever, the sooner the transaction closes, the better for sellers. You can find out from local title companies which house buying company (or which investor) closes deals regularly. If a house buying company closes a lot of deals, chances are they are a company that sellers like to work with.
Choose a company willing to work out a win-win deal with you. When selling your house for whatever reason, make sure you’re getting as much money as possible for your property. If selling fast, you may not be able to get full retail for it, but at least get as much as is legally possible. On the other hand, house buying companies would also want to turn a profit when buying houses, especially one that needs work done and they’re buying as is. When choosing a house buying company to work with, choose one who’s willing to work out a fair deal for everyone concerned.
Choose a company whose priority is to sell the house. Houston home buying companies are in the business to make money. That’s a given. But making a profit should not be their only goal. There are companies who, in their desire to make a lot of money off a deal, would list it with too high a price and wouldn’t care whether the house sits on the market for any length of time. When choosing a house buying company to work with, pick one who’s willing to pocket a smaller profit just so the house gets sold fast.
Choose a company founded on good core values. House buying is a business, but it doesn’t mean good values don’t have a place in it. Choose a company who puts the home seller’s satisfaction and welfare high on its list of priorities. Choose one that has a reputation for being ethical and fair.
