How We Can Help
If you're facing any of the following situations, we'll buy your house within 3 to 30 days:
Inheriting a property in Houston, TX also means inheriting problems like outstanding debts, costly repairs, and issues with disagreeing multiple heirs. Because the probate process can be overwhelming and drawn-out, trying to sell an inherited real estate can make an already turbulent time in your life unbearable.
Selling a home is typically a complicated process involving many decisions. You need to know how the house will be sold, what the asking price should be, if any repairs will be made. These and other decisions require cooperation between the husband and the wife—not something a divorcing couple wants to do.
Selling your home traditionally can require you to make a long list of property updates. Because of financial reasons or time constraints, you can’t always afford to repair your house yourself. When you need a fast income from selling your home in Houston, TX, the traditional housing market may not be the best fit.
A homeowner can lose some or all of their equity when a house sells through foreclosure. If a bank has initiated foreclosure proceedings against the family home, the opportunity to keep the home has probably already passed. The seller needs to act quickly if they want to sell the house before the bank does.
Not all job opportunities come with a relocation package. An employer in northern Texas may have offered a substantial increase in salary. But that increase may not cover the costs of maintaining an existing mortgage and renting a new home. The house needs to sell quickly.
A tax lien casts a dark shadow over any house. Buyers often assume that if the homeowner didn’t have the money to pay the tax bill, they probably didn’t have the money to maintain the home properly. If the homeowner is facing an auction on the courthouse steps, action must be taken quickly.
Trying to sell a house with tenants is hard, but it can be even harder when dealing with difficult renters. If you’re a landlord with disruptive tenants, selling your Houston rental house can be an extremely long process. Not only are most buyers future homeowners looking for a house without renters, but your problem tenants can make showings difficult to organize.
While some may think the American dream looks like owning the most luxurious house on the block, the truth is that bigger isn’t always better. Downsizing is a cost-effective solution to solving debt problems or avoiding finance issues. With that said, it’s difficult to save money when you’re spending thousands on repairs, remodeling, closing costs, and realtor commissions.
Houses in bad condition can be fixed up. But nothing can be done to fix a home’s location. Sometimes entire neighborhoods are transformed when all the homes are bought and restored by more affluent buyers. But a single homeowner in a rough neighborhood has little choice but to sell and move. How can they find a willing buyer?

I need to sell my house fast! How quickly can you buy it?
We can provide you with an offer the same day over the phone, and close the sale 72 hours after you sign the contract. We work fast because we want to buy your house as much as you want to sell!
My house needs a lot of repairs. Do you purchase residential property in any condition?
We sure do! As property investors, we love purchasing homes and renovating them. Regardless of the condition of your home, we will buy your house as is and in any condition.
What do I need to do for you to make me an offer on my house today?
Don’t wait another minute. We are the people who buy houses for cash! Pick up the phone and give us a call. You can also request a cash offer online by filling out a contact form on our website.
But how do I sell a bad house that people don’t want to buy?
A house can have serious problems other than repairs:
- It can be located in a neighborhood infested with crime.
- The next-door neighbors can be nothing but trouble.
- A foul-smelling factory could be nearby.
- The house may have multiple liens attached.
If you fix all the repairs and settle any liens, you can probably get a real estate agent to list it. Or you can try to sell it yourself through a FSBO sale. But you can’t fix any problems with the neighbors or the neighborhood. Save yourself all this trouble. Contact Sell My House Fast Houston TX. We will buy your house AS IS. An ugly home in an old neighborhood filled with crime won’t stop us or slow us down. We take the house with all its problems, and you take the cash.
How to get your house sold privately in Houston, Texas?
If you sell the house yourself through a FSBO (For Sale By Owner) sale, you will save the realtor’s commission. But you also will take on quite a bit of time and expense:
- The repairs must be made to fix problems that would turn away the typical buyer.
- Any legal issues have to be taken care of, such as settling liens against the house.
- The enormous amount of paperwork involved in a real estate transaction is entirely yours to deal with.
- An asking price has to be set that encourages offers without selling you short.
- You have to make the house look good inside and out for potential buyers.
- Showing the house and negotiating with buyers is your responsibility.
If you don’t have the time or the money to sell it yourself, contact Sell My House Fast Houston TX. We are cash house buyers with the experience and expertise to eliminate the hassle of trying to sell a property quickly.
What should I take care of when selling a house AS IS?
If your house is in poor condition and you don’t want to fix it, you have to sell it AS IS. While selling AS IS may save you the expense of costly repairs, it won’t save you any time. You must:
- Have the home inspected for any problems of which you’re not aware.
- Get estimates for fixing those problems.
- Determine how much money it would take to settle any liens, if any.
- Adjust your asking price accordingly.
- Prepare disclosure statements for potential buyers, according to Texas law.
- Market the house.
- Show the house.
- Negotiate with any interested buyers.
You could try to find a realtor willing to list a fixer-upper. And if you do find one, don’t expect them to work very hard at selling your house. Distressed houses don’t bring much money, which means a lower commission for the realtor. Plus, buyers for fixer-uppers are scarce, because the majority of buyers want a house without serious problems.
Call us and save yourself a lot of trouble. When we buy your house, we assume all the responsibility for all of the problems. We buy it AS IS, and you don’t have to do anything other than to wait a few days for your money.
I need an investor who would give me cash in hand for my house in Houston TX. How to find them?
A simple search engine query like, “we buy ugly houses for cash in Houston, Texas” will give you numerous companies that buy houses in your neighborhood. But do your homework before choosing. Not every investor is respected and experienced like we are.
Some common types of fraud to be aware of:
- They give you the runaround by saying something like: “Your house could be worth as much as $$$$ to us.” And then they begin to list all of the reasons why it’s not worth that amount. After they’ve worn you out with all of their manipulations, you will feel like they’re doing you a favor by even making an offer.
- They won’t visit the house, but offer to buy it, “sight unseen.” You are asked to answer some questions. And in some instances, you are asked to put down a small deposit to reserve their offer. Your personal information and money are all they want.
- After agreeing to their offer, they keep coming back with slight changes for you to sign. And amid all this confusion, you end up signing a document with terrible terms that you didn’t notice.
What would help me to sell my Houston home if the current market is slow?
In a slow market, there are more sellers than buyers. To sell your property quickly, you can make it stand out from the competition by:
- Fixing all of the needed repairs.
- Updating where needed.
- Staging the interior.
- Making sure the exterior and the landscaping add to the curb appeal.
- Setting your asking price a little lower than similar houses.
- Making sure your photographs and descriptions are professional-quality.
- Marketing intensely—both online and offline.
But you can follow all of these suggestions and still not sell the property quickly. The only sure way to sell your home fast in a slow market is to sell to a real estate investor.
How fast can I hope to sell my home in Houston TX?
The average home in Texas sells in three to six months. But that is not a very helpful statistic, because every house is different. The neighborhood, the condition, the size, the market conditions, and other variables all affect the time it takes to sell. None of those variables slow us down. It takes us 3 to 30 days to complete a real estate transaction. And the typical house is sold in one and a half weeks. We will come to visit your property and make an offer. Within just a few days after agreeing to our offer, you will have the cash you expected.
How much cash can an investor from Houston TX pay for my house?
The price we pay depends on the condition of a property and its market value. If a house has serious problems, we can’t pay as much for it as a well-maintained home. A house with a clear title is worth more to us than a similar-sized property that has multiple liens against it.
We treat each house individually. If it looks like an excellent rental property, we can estimate its value to a landlord who is always looking for small homes to rent out. In some instances, the value of a house may be in the land It’s sitting on—if it’s located next to a commercial property that needs additional parking, for example.
When we make you an offer, we estimate the price we can get for your house when we resell it. From that price, we deduct all of our expected costs, plus our overhead and profit.
What we (and any other investor) offer you will be less than the property’s market value. But you are entirely free from the house and all its problems within a few days. We take all of the responsibility and all of the risk.
Is there a chance to speed up the sale of my houston home if it’s vacant?
The typical buyer has difficulty picturing themselves living in an empty house. If you need to sell a vacant house quickly:
- Repair all the problems that became visible after removing furniture and decorations.
- Eliminate musty odors and their cause, or buyers will walk away (musty odors are very noticeable in an empty house).
- Consider installing a security system that will allow you to control lighting remotely (all lights need to be turned on during a showing).
- Consider staging the home professionally.
- Find a trusted friend or family member to supervise the sale, if you have moved away from the area.
Of you can avoid all this hassle by calling us. Get on with your life and leave the house and its problems to us. After accepting our cash offer, it will only be a few days until you have your money in hand.
How to sell a house with a lien put on its title?
If your house doesn’t have a clear title because of a lien, a buyer can’t get financing until the lien is removed. Banks don’t want their collateral encumbered by somebody else’s lien. A lender might consider a loan if the buyer has sufficient cash or other security. But finding a traditional buyer willing to take a house with a lien is nearly impossible.
The lien-holder might consider releasing the lien if you pay part of the indebtedness and work out an acceptable payment plan. And then you could sell the house free and clear. But you will still have the debt to repay.
Sell the house to us. We buy houses with or without liens. After accepting our offer, you don’t have to think about it anymore. We settle the lien and take care of any paperwork. And you leave the house and its problems with us.
How do companies of home buying investors work?
Homeowners sometimes have an urgent need to sell their house fast. But selling a home through a real estate agent or a FSBO sale can take months. And a house with serious problems can take even longer.
We are real estate investors who pay cash for homes in any condition. After being contacted, we meet with the seller to inspect the property. And within 24 hours the seller has a cash offer. Our offer reflects all of our costs associated with reselling the property for a profit.
