Q: How do I sell my house fast?

There are several ways to sell your house. You can work with a real estate agent. However it’s much faster to sell your home for cash to us at Southwest House Buyers. If your home fits the criteria of what we’re looking for, then we can buy it directly from you. Since we pay cash that means you avoided all the delays, paperwork and middlemen that can happen when working with a real estate agent. See how our process works.

Q: Why should I work with you instead of a real estate agent?

Selling a house with a real estate agent is a much slower process then selling directly to Southwest House Buyers. A real estate agent will usually want you to first do a lot of repairs and upgrades to your home in order to make it more attractive. At Southwest House Buyers, we buy homes “as-is” with no repairs necessary.

Also, the buyers that your real estate agent finds are likely using a mortgage to purchase your property. Once you accept an offer from someone buying with a mortgage, it can sometimes be as long as 90 days for the loan and underwriting to get approved. It’s also possible that after all of this the loan could be denied.

Selling directly to Southwest House Buyers is much faster. We buy your home directly from you for cash, not with a mortgage. That means we can close on your home fast, (typically in just a few weeks). Also when you work with us, you don’t pay any commissions to real estate agents. We even pay the closing costs.

Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?

This is a good question. We are not real estate brokers or agents and we do not list houses. We are real estate buyers who purchase the property directly from you. We buy homes that meet our purchasing criteria. We may repair the house and resell, or keep it as a rental ourselves.

Q: What areas do you buy houses in?

We buy properties in both Southern California and Arizona. In California we focus on the greater Los Angeles area, West LA, all the beach cities, Long Beach, Orange County, Pasadena and the Inland Empire. In Arizona we focus on the greater Phoenix area, Scottsdale, Tempe, Chandler, Mesa and Peoria. If you have a home you’d like to sell in any of these areas, then we’d love to talk with you. Please get in touch.
