Avoiding “Cash for Homes” and “We Buy Houses” Scams

While most “We Buy Homes for Cash” companies are reputable and trustworthy, we’ve seen increasing numbers of shady home buying companies and self-proclaimed “gurus” popping up in the real estate industry over the past several years. Be sure to work with a professional and honest company like Homeinc.

Thus, how do you avoid fraud and scam artists? Here are several tips that could help you avoid being a victim:

  • Avoid selling to house “flippers” – we’ve all seen these “get rich flipping houses” infomercials late at night. The problem with selling to these people is that their expertise varies greatly.  Plus, some are not always ethical and trustworthy.
  • Do your homework – be wary of companies that just moved into town within a year or two. You should only trust home buyers that are experienced and knowledgeable.  We have over 70 years of combined experience in the “we buy homes for cash”
  • Understand what you’re paying for – companies that aren’t reputable or trustworthy have been known to charge ridiculous market risk and service fees when you get the contract. These can dramatically reduce the amount of the offer and are commonly referred to as “hidden fees.”
  • Work with a company that offers a personal approach – you want to ensure that you’re working with a real person throughout the process like you do when working with Homeinc. Outsourced call centers in foreign countries or otherwise remote offices can’t provide the personal attention that you deserve, nor can they be trusted.
