We buy houses

For most people, the majority of their personal net worth is tied up in their house. So, when you’re in need of cash, selling your house may be the most logical way to get it. When you sell a house the traditional way, the funding may fall through. And, you may lose a good portion of your cash to commissions. If you want to sell your house for cash, then HomeVestors is here to help. We can quickly make a cash offer for your house as is and get you the money you need.

Your local, independently-owned HomeVestors® franchisees, the We Buy Ugly Houses® people, know that when you want to sell a house, it can be stressful. Waiting for approval from the bank, dealing with agents, accommodating multiple showings, making repairs, and spending hours cleaning can be difficult and time-consuming. But selling your house to us can be easy and stress-free. Why is that? It’s because we pay cash and we buy houses “as is,” quickly — without having to mess with showings, agents, and banks.

We’re Northern Chicagoland house buyers, and we buy houses in other parts, too! Your local HomeVestors® franchisees buy houses throughout the northern Chicago suburbs area including Lake, McHenry counties and surrounding communities.  We ensure that getting cash for your house is fast. It’s easy. And it works.

What Selling Your House “As Is” Means

We buy houses for cash Lake and Mchenry

Selling your house the traditional route requires you to have it inspected, possibly pay for repairs, painting, and even cleaning. It’s expensive and time-consuming. Then it can take months or even years – if it sells at all. That’s why we do things a different way. We can buy your Lake and McHenry County house “as is.” That means:

  • No cleaning. Don’t worry about how the house looks. We can buy it exactly as it is.
  • No repair work. We don’t want you to any spend time or money fixing up your house.
  • No waiting on banks. It can feel like banks take forever to give approval. But we pay cash, so it’s possible to close in as few as three weeks.
  • No agents or showings. You don’t have to wait for delays or accommodate open houses and a long line of strangers coming in to look at your home.
  • No paying typical closing costs: We can take care of those for you.

It’s easy to get a fast cash offer for your house with We Buy Ugly Houses®. We’ve set up our whole process to make things easy for you. Selling a house as-is quickly is as easy as 1-2-3!
