I got a new job about 2 hours away from my house and decided I should just sell my home and move closer. I talked it over with my dad and he brought up House Buyers of America’s name. I spoke to some realtors, mulled around the costs of commissions, and did a lot of research online. Selling through a realtor would mean I’d have to paint the house and then pay a high commission. With the current economic climate, I thought we wouldn’t end up selling the house, realistically, until December. That would have been such a pain to commute 2 hrs for that long. And it meant that I would have to carry the cost of the house for another 7 months while it was listed…..in a crummy market. There were too many unknowns and potentially poor outcomes. Since I lived in Chantilly at the time, I Googled companies in Chantilly. House Buyers came right up. I had recognized their name from some mailers that came to us, plus my father had already mentioned them, so I gave them a call. The speed of the process was what helped me make the decision. I wouldn’t have to deal with doing repairs, wouldn’t have to wait for anything, and the house could be sold As Is. Once we started the process it went really quick. I contacted them in May, and we closed so quick that I didn’t even have to make my July payment. That’s crazy wow!! Everyone I spoke to was super helpful – especially the settlement coordinator. Whenever I had a question for him, Boom! He gave me the answer immediately. I recommend House Buyers of America to everyone, especially if you want to sell fast and not have to deal with any unknowns.
In working with my buyers to find a home we came across a House Buyers of America home. My buyers fell in love! From the start of the transaction to the end House Buyers did great. The home inspection work was done well and it closed on time. All the staff I worked with did a great job and did what they were supposed to do and on time. I look forward to walking through another House Buyers home!

This closing went so easy and fast. House Buyers of America was very helpful, especially the Dispositions Consultant – he did an excellent job. He always responded quickly – offered to try to help us in a special way. The Settlement Coordinator was so polite – when she would call me and I was busy – she would call me back at the time I told her to call me and she would even text me. The title company was also great – very responsive. As a realtor, I did not know what to expect when working with an investment company. It was so pleasant and I’m looking forward to working with them again.

The entire process went great. House Buyers of America was the best company I spoke with overall and I spoke to about 15 other companies that do the same thing. It was the smoothest settlement I’ve been through and I’ve been to hundreds of settlements. I used to sell real estate and commercial properties. I have never been to a smoother settlement in my life. The title company gave me a preliminary number for the closing, we got to the table, the paperwork matched the preliminary number, we closed, I walked out and that afternoon I had the wire in my bank account. It was perfect – it really really was. And this was a tough transaction because I was the executor of this inherited home with 4 other siblings to guide and make happy throughout. I had done so much research – I started on Google, and went right down the Google list, calling every company I found. The thing is, the offers we were getting from other companies were getting so close to the payoff of the mortgage, plus 6% closing and commission fees, plus we still had to get the house cleaned out, that it just didn’t make sense to sell it through to those guys or a realtor. House Buyers gave me the highest offer and they included trashing the stuff out in the house with it. Not only that, they offered me the highest deposit on the house – the other companies offered only about 10% of what House Buyers gives in deposits. Our Real Estate Consultant, Drew, was great. He wasn’t pushy like some people are – he was very laid back. The other companies gave me a 30 day window for an in-person inspection. I didn’t have to do that with House Buyers. They were completely flexible with everything. Thank you guys, for being so good at this!

As a realtor, getting a home to close fast makes the sale so much sweeter. House Buyers of America did a good job with communication and the speed of this cash deal was impressive.
