Even though home buying companies have been serving their local communities for decades, there are still some misconceptions about them. Some people wonder if these companies are legitimate businesses. The short answer is, of course, yes! But let’s look at three of the ways you can be assured that home buying companies are indeed legit.
One sure sign that a company is a scam is if they push you into something from the beginning. If you are ever required to seal a deal without full transparency and equal understanding, you should run the other way. Legitimate home buying companies would never box you in like that. After contact is initiated and we have performed market research on your property, we will send you a fair, no obligation offer in writing. This means that you have full power to accept or reject the offer. Until you accept the offer, there is zero obligation to sell.
You Initiate Contact
Another red flag that might indicate a sketchy business is when they come to you. While not all companies that initiate contact are sketchy, you can be fairly certain that companies in which you initiate contact are legitimate. With home buying companies, you start the process out of a genuine interest to sell your home–the easy way. We don’t get involved until you express your interest in working with us. Because you make that first contact, you can rest assured that we are not out to scam you in any way.
Close at a Reputable Title Company
Any questionable transaction that is completed online or in private is a risky one. We eliminate that concern completely by closing like any other real estate transaction–at a reputable title company. Even better, to further accommodate you, the title company selected will be one in your area. Plus, you get to choose the timing.
With scammers out there swimming the internet like sharks, it is commendable to be on your guard. However, you can rest assured that home buying companies are reputable businesses that have been helping people out of unwanted properties and simplifying home sales for decades.
