How Can You Differentiate Between Buyers and We Buy Houses Scams?

When it comes to selecting a buyer for your house that you need to sell, most people want to choose the buyer who presents the highest offer. You may think that because they are the highest bidder that they are reliable and have the resources available to get the transaction done. However, that isn't always true. There are many sellers out there that thought they had found the ideal buyer for their property, but when the settlement closing date approached the buyer called and backed out of the deal last minute. Leaving you with having to start the whole process over again.

This cause them to spend money on marketing their house for a longer period of time and in some cases, they had to continue maintaining a vacant property that they could no longer afford. We don't want to experience potential problems caused by we buy houses scams. We want you to know what to look for when selecting a cash home buyer.

  • Is the Buyer Local and can meet with you in-person?
    Set up an appointment to meet with them at you property or a comfortable meeting place. Make sure that you can reach out to them at any time.
  • Do they have a Staff?
    If they are a well-established company, they will have experienced staff that will be able to help you through the entire process and answer any questions along the way
  • Are They a Reputable Company?
    Is the company a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business? Call the BBB at 775-322-0657 or look for the company information on the BBB website http://www.bbb.org/.. Calling the BBB will help you determine if the company is reliable.
  • Have you read the contract carefully?
    Take your time. John and his team will go over the contract with you. If you have any questions about anything, they will explain and answer any questions. We will never pressure you into anything and if you need more time to go over the contract, ask. We will make sure that you are comfortable with the contract before proceeding.

However, most people behind scams can be good at them. Or, sometimes the scam is so obvious you can see it a mile away. If it doesn't seem right to you, then it's probably a scam.
