In most ways, a cash sale of your home is a much quicker and simpler process than going through a traditional sale. You don’t have to deal with any real estate agents, pay a bunch of fees, make repairs, worry about inspections or stress out during the long escrow process, where anything can go wrong.
A cash sale allows you to sell your house fast in as-is condition. It’s a great option if you are facing financial hardship, have a rental or inherited property you don’t want to deal with anymore, or you are forced to relocate quickly for work or other reasons. Sell your home for cash and move on with your life.
We often get asked how the process works with Offer4Cash, so here is a step-by-step guide to let you know exactly what to expect.
1. Contact Offer4Cash
First, you’ll need to contact Offer4Cash to let us know you might be interested in selling your house. Call us at (209) 661-7385 or fill out the contact form on any page of our website. Please give us your property address and phone number (your email is also helpful), so we can look up your house and contact you to arrange the cash offer.
2. Brief Phone Consultation
You will talk with a representative from Offer4Cash, who will gather some additional information about you and your house. We will also ask you to set some of your own terms, such as desired closing date and what price you are looking to get. This will allow us to understand your situation and get a sense of the property’s condition, which will then enable us to determine what our fair market cash offer amount will be.
3. Property Evaluation
We won’t just buy any house at Offer4Cash. It needs to meet certain criteria we’ve set before we make an offer. Other factors are also evaluated, including how much you still owe on the mortgage and estimates on the amount of repairs that may be needed for us to resell it on the open market. We have to make sure it’s a sound investment. The good news is that most homeowners that come to us for help will qualify.
4. In-Home Consultation & Cash Offer Presentation
In some cases, we may buy the house sight unseen. However, in most situations we want to check out the property in person, just to make sure everything is as described. Special arrangements can be made if you are an out-of-town owner. Otherwise, the Offer4Cash representative will arrive at your house with the cash offer contract in hand. If everything looks okay after we perform a quick inspection, we’ll make our cash offer and give you the contract right then and there.
5. Accepting the Offer
If you are satisfied with the offer, you can sign the contract immediately when we present it in the home. Or, if you want to take a little time to think about it, you can. Most cash offers made expire within 48 hours, though we are sometimes flexible if you need more time. Just ask and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
6. Closing Process
Once the contract is signed, we’ll take care of the rest. We will hire a reputable local escrow company to handle all the final paperwork. You don’t have to worry about inspections or repairs. We buy with cash from our own financial sources, so there are never any concerns about funding falling through. All cash offers are guaranteed. We’ll aim to meet your desired closing date and you’ll receive cash in hand when all is said and done. We can close in as little as a week, or we’ll work with you if you need a little more time to move out.
It really is that simple. We’ll make a guaranteed cash offer at a fair market value, and you can accept it or choose to decline. There is no pressure. There is no stress during the sales process. You can get out from under your house quickly and walk away with cash in hand to pay off your debts or use for whatever you decide.
