Recent Loss of Job

It happens to everyone - all over the US, every day, all levels of income and wealth. The smartest and brightest from every industry get laid off every day. It is unfortunate and all too common. When this happens, it is an understatement to say that a person’s world can turn upside down and the to-do list and stress builds in full-force. While the focus is to find a new job, cut expenses and keep family life on track, the list of unrelenting tasks goes on. When people find themselves in this situation and they own property, the mortgage bills, taxes and utility bills are their biggest expenses and they decide they want or need to sell and do so quickly. This is where we can and do help every week.

We buy properties directly from owners and if a property fits our buying criteria we can have a fair offer for consideration on the same day we receive a call. Since we are direct buyers, owners benefit from bypassing all of the hassles of a typical sale don’t have to pay any commissions or fees. On most transactions, we will even pay all of the closing costs.

We buy properties in as-is condition - owners do not need to do any cleaning or fixing. We have worked with owners in a countless number of situations (vacant, tenant occupied, structural problems, etc.) and we almost always find a win/win solution. We can close on the day of an owner’s choice and if there are other needs,  we are flexible and will do what I can to help. All of our transactions take place with nationally recognized escrow and title companies to ensure a smooth transaction.

You may be thinking about selling a property, but might not be quite ready for any number of reasons. We understand. We are always available to discuss your circumstances and answer questions.  We have dealt with many owners that were likely in the same or similar situations to yours and we can use our experience to help brainstorm options that you may not know exist.


Peter and Gloria - Long Beach, CA

"Very pleased! We were dealing with a sudden job loss and had to act quickly. We would have been fine for a few months but we knew where we were headed if we didn't sell the house and my income wasn't going to cover it. We called a bunch of different home buying companies and agents to see what people would offer and we went with Blake Buys Homes. Their price was not the highest, but it was up there and their terms were by far better than any others because we didn't have to pay for anything, and they let us stay in the house for two months after we closed escrow to give us the time we needed to find another place to live."
