Are you wondering who keeps putting up these “We Buy Houses” signs in Los Angeles County and Orange County?
Have you recently driven by a sign that says one of the following phrases:
“We Buy Houses Fast For Cash”
“Sell Your House Fast For Cash”
“We Buy Ugly Houses”
“We Buy Houses As-Is”
“Get a Cash Offer On Your House in 48 Hours”
If you have seen one of these and you want the full story behind them, you’ve come to the right place. Our company, Blake Buys Homes, elects not to use these signs due to some people’s distaste, but similar companies do and we’ll explain their reasoning.
These signs are put up all over the U.S. by individuals (investors or non-real estate professionals) or companies who are in the market to buy homes. The approach is followed by many due to its effectiveness. If the signs are put in the right high-traffic locations, tens of thousands of people will see them and the advertising costs are remarkably low. Each day the signs are up, those people or companies get at least a handful of qualified, motivated sellers. Many people are turned off by the physical appearance of the signs but there is no denying that they work.
The other primary benefit, sometimes even for homeowners, is that by people calling the numbers on these signs they are put in touch with a motivated buyer who can close fast, usually all cash, with no broker’s fees or commissions. The homeowner may not get the same offer they would if the house was marketed by a Realtor but the process is much faster and far easier.
Most of the more respected, successful companies that use these signs offer the same general benefits to a motivated seller. The question becomes what is a fair price or value for your home given the circumstances of the sale.
