I just wanted to write a quick review of a site that we used to help us when we found ourselves facing foreclosure. You see, a few months ago, I lost my job and fell 6 months behind on my mortgage payments. My lender was threatening to foreclose, so I my wife and I looked for options immediately. We couldn’t find a Realtor that could help us, and even if they did want to help us, they didn’t have the expertise for our situation.
That’s when we came across a nationwide house buying company (NeedToSellMyHouse.com) that said they would help us, by purchasing the house from us, not just listing it.
Truth be told, we didn’t know what to expect from this company, because we didn’t know if they were legit or not. We didn’t believe that selling our house could be that easy, but then when we read a few house buying reviews and a few articles on top real estate websites like this one, we decided to give them a chance.
By this time, we were sick and tired of trying to sell our home the traditional route (e.g. listing it on the MLS), just to have it go stale after months on the market. Our agent didn’t provide feedback, and probably because he was too busy with other clients. That’s why we decided to try working with true real estate professionals, to see if they really followed through on their promises.
Most home owners like us, probably think that these types of companies that buy houses always low ball sellers that contact them, but not Need To Sell My House, they really do their research upfront to find out exactly what cash home sales are in the area, so that they can make a fair offer.
Here’s what ended up happening after they gave us an offer. We countered their initial offer and then they accepted, so within only just a few short days, we had an executed contract to sell our house! The best part is that we didn’t have to agree to make repairs, concessions for closing costs, and we didn’t pay any Realtor commissions, because they did not represent us. We would recommend this company to anyone, no matter what type of financial distress they are in. Getting an offer through them is quick, easy and free, and it worked out well for us.
