The buying process is usually very smooth. All of the titlework is usually done before House Buyers of America lists a house and most of our houses are vacant.

We factor in the costs to repair the house, what other homes in the area are selling for and how long it is taking to sell those homes. These and several other factors are researched to determine a fair offer.

On the day we buy your house, your mortgage is fully paid. By law, the professional title company that conducts the closing MUST payoff your mortgage and any other liens before they distribute the remainder of your money. Other house buying companies claim they buy your house for cash, but they only assume your loan and continue to make the payments. Not House Buyers of America, we only buy houses for CASH, period!
Yes, we can work with any seller who needs to move a property quickly for any reason and in any price range. We have purchased million-dollar houses before.
Yes, if you call or contact us now, we may be able to help catch up your back payments and stop the foreclosure process. Each day you delay in taking action gives you fewer opportunities to correct the situation, so call now!
No problem! We can still buy your house as is, even if it has demolition orders scheduled.
We work FAST to help ensure that your house doesn’t go to foreclosure. We present you with a FAIR offer to pay off your mortgage before the foreclosure. We help save your credit, avoid foreclosure and allow you to sell your house FAST and FAIR. Due to recent legislation, if you reside in the state of Maryland and are within a certain period of time before your foreclosure sale date, we will introduce you to a Foreclosure Consultant. The legislation mandates that if you are within this certain window that a foreclosure consultant must explain to you all of your options involved in selling your home.
We work with your bankruptcy attorney to present a FAIR offer and give you additional money at closing. We present the offer directly to your attorney and work to have the offer accepted by the bankruptcy court. Once the offer is accepted, we ensure that the bankruptcy is released and we buy the property as soon as possible.
