We buy houses for cash in Northern Chicago.

We Buy Ugly Houses® is a national network of professional home buyers who understand the urgency of homeowners who need to sell their home quickly for cash.

That’s why when we buy homes in suburbs like Antioch, Cary, Waukegan, Woodstock, or Naperville, we promise to close quickly. We pay 100% cash for houses, townhouses, condos, duplexes, multi-family buildings, and some commercial properties.

The phrase ‘We Buy Ugly Houses’ lets sellers in Lake County and McHenry County know that we are willing to buy houses that are either in poor condition or, for one reason or another, might not be attractive to all buyers. This includes some of the following reasons:

  • Houses with serious structural issues such as foundation, roof, plumbing, or electrical problems.
  • Houses located in less than desirable or high-crime neighborhoods.
  • Houses located in a flood plain or in areas prone to the effects of weather.
  • Houses with high-interest rates or undesirable mortgage financing.
  • Houses with payments or balances that are too high for the owner to handle.
  • Houses that have bad memories for the homeowner, such as death, divorce, or tragedy.
  • Houses that no longer serve the needs of the homeowner—too big, too small, inconvenient location, and so on.
