There's only one We Buy Ugly Houses®.

There is only one We Buy Houses® in the country, and we don’t advertise with those signs you see along the road or stuck on a utility pole. The signs may have similar text, such as “We Buy Old Houses” or “We’ll Buy Your House.” But don’t be fooled. We don’t advertise with that type of sign. Those are called “pirate signs,” and they are illegal. 

The people who post them are trying to piggyback off the great reputation that We Buy Ugly Houses has built since 1996. You can’t trust someone to be straight and honest with you if you already know they are doing something illegal and dishonest. Real estate scams in Fort Worth are more prevalent than you may think.
