Cash for Homes in Lubbock: How It Works
If you’re looking to sell your Lubbock home in as-is condition, chances are you’ve heard how simple and quick selling to a cash home buyer (aka a real estate investor) can be. And if you’re considering taking this unconventional but advantageous selling route, it’s smart to familiarize yourself with the cash home-buying process so you know what to expect.
At We Buy Houses Lubbock, we know selling a home is a major decision that’s not to be taken lightly. And if you’re considering selling us your house for cash, we want you to be as confident in the process as possible.
To help you better understand what to expect before you make an inquiry, we’ve broken down our simple, straightforward, four-step buying process below.
Step 1: Contact Our Office
First and foremost, you’ll need to reach out to our office to let us know you’re interested in selling your Lubbock-area home for cash. You can call us directly or fill out our online contact form with your name, primary phone number, and the address of the property you’re looking to sell.
We do our very best to respond to all inquiries as quickly as possible, so if you contact us during normal business hours, expect a quick call back. Usually, we’re able to respond on the same day.
During our initial conversation, we’ll ask for a few basic details about the home you wish to sell so we can begin our in-house assessment process. If you’re unsure about any of the details we ask for, no worries. We can gather that information later on when we conduct our property research process.
Step 2: Schedule a Brief Home Inspection
To move forward with the process, we’ll need to perform a brief walkthrough of your home to assess its condition since we’ll be buying it as is.
To be clear, this walkthrough is not an inspection from a licensed property inspector. Our team conducts the walkthrough — we’re the people who’ll actually be buying your house — and it’s simply a quick tour that allows us to view the interior and exterior of your property.
Because we’ll be purchasing your home in as-is condition, we need to get an idea of how much work it requires so we can determine how much that work will likely cost. Since the overall condition of any home always factors into its property value, this step is standard for any type of selling route you may choose.
Step 3: Get Your Offer
After we’ve gathered all of the property information we need to valuate your house and factored in any necessary repair and/or renovation costs, we’ll finalize our fair cash offer and present it to you for review. You don’t have to make a decision immediately — we understand you may need some time to weigh your options and figure out what you’d like to do.
Generally, our offers are good for 30 days, so you’ll have ample time to contemplate your options.
Step 4: Decide If and When You’re Ready to Sell
Once you’ve made a decision, reach out to our team to let us know if you’d like to move forward with selling your house. If you’re not ready to sell, that’s totally fine. Asking for an offer in no way obligates you to sell your house.
If, on the other hand, you’re ready to sell, we’ll move forward with the closing process on a timeline that works for your needs. If you need to sell as quickly as possible, we can typically close in less than two weeks, depending on your situation. If you need some time to arrange your move or tie up other loose ends, let us know, and we’ll schedule closing on a date that works for you.
When it’s time to close, we’ll meet at a local title office to sign the paperwork and finalize the deal. Then we’ll cut you a check for the amount of the agreed-upon offer, and that’s it!
We’d also like to note that if you need to stay in your home for a little while after closing, we can work with you on a move-out date. We understand that when you sell your house this quickly, it may not be possible to move into another home right away.
Just let us know what you need, and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
