When selling a house for cash, it's important to sell to a company you can trust. Our property specialist, Jim Dow, took trust to a whole new level when he found nearly $10,000 in cash in a house he purchased and returned the money to the former homeowner. Jim truly embodies We Buy Ugly Houses® values of trust and integrity, and we’re pleased to see that this act of kindness isn't going unnoticed, as you'll see in this news clip.

survey clipboard

Don’t trust a survey.

When companies ask you to self-evaluate your home, they’re more likely trying to find out more information about your house and neighborhood.

no offer without a visit

No visit, no offer.

A survey, phone call or anything other than a personal visit may not produce an accurate offer and investors know that. That’s why some will reduce the initial offer once they visit the house.

don't be confused

Know what you pay for.

Some companies have been known to charge outlandish service and market risk fees that greatly reduce the offer. Is any experience worth a percentage of your house?

torn contract

Don’t get deserted.

When people sell their houses quickly, some investors will include a clause in the contract that says they can pull out of the sale as many as ten days after the contract is signed.

search, research

Do your research.

Some companies have been around for 15 minutes, and some just moved into town. Trust investors that are experienced, and can help you throughout the process.


Make it personal.

Make sure you deal with a real person that keeps you updated throughout the process. Call centers or remote offices may be unable to give your house the attention it deserves.

Go with number one.
