If you didn’t have any plans to sell your house, then this can be a little bit confusing — why are people contacting you about this? What is their motivation? Well, this is actually more common than you might think.
Real estate investors pull big lists of addresses and send mail to people who they think might be interested in selling. This doesn’t, of course, mean that you’re obligated to sell to any of these investors (and don’t let them make you think otherwise). But if you are interested in selling your house fast for cash to an investor who’s reached out to you, then vet their company to make sure they operate with integrity…
- Give Them a Call — Call them and ask them questions about their process. Do they seem honest and straightforward or are they just trying to pressure you?
- Google Their Business — What do you find when you Google their business? Look at the reviews!
- Do They Follow Through? — When the investor schedules a meeting with you, do they show up on time? Do they do what they say they’re going to do? These are good indicators of how easy the investor will be to work with.
