Sell Your House Fast! Any Condition - No Fees - No Hassle


Here are some Frequently Asked Questions that may be on your mind:

Q. How quickly can you buy my house?

A. The short answer is, much more quickly than through traditional means, like running For Sale By Owner ads and hoping to find the right buyer on your own. In most cases, assuming you’re “realistic”, you’ll receive an offer in a matter of hours and sell in a matter of days – or more importantly – sell on the date of your choice.


Q: Can you help me stop foreclosure?

A: Possibly. Our network of buyers are good at what they do and if there is a way for your local network member to buy your house before the foreclosure sale, you can avoid foreclosure. Typically the most effective way to stop foreclosure and/or a short sale is to sell your house quickly. Here at iBuyHouses.com, our network members close quickly and in some cases, extremely quickly, to help the seller (you) avoid foreclosure.


Q: How does iBuyHouses.com differ from typical For Sale By Owner?

A: Typically when a homeowner decides to avoid the cost of listing with a Real Estate Agent, they will do what’s called “For Sale By Owner” or “Sell By Owner”. This involves advertising the property in the local newspaper and/or on line, taking calls from potential buyers, many of whom are not qualified to buy, then letting them tour your house, and invade your privacy. It can be a troubling process. When you sell to an iBuyHouses.com network member, you avoid all of that. With iBuyHouses.com you’ll get a quick home sale, without hassle or fees.


Q: What if my house is under water?

A: : If you owe more on your house than it’s worth, typically referred to as “Under Water”, you local iBuyHouses.com network member may be able to buy your house on a Short Sale. Many banks will take less than what is owed, if there is a credible buyer ready to close. This is where we come in. We buy houses from people who are under water all the time.


Q: How do I sell my house online?

A: There are lots of ways to “sell by owner” online. eBay is one resource and there are several others. The easiest of them all is to submit your information on the form right here and let your local iBuyHouses.com network member make you a hassle free offer. Remember, with iBuyHouses.com, there is never a fee. Be sure to use our “savings calculator” to see how much you can save buy using our service.


Q. What if I need time before we close the transaction? Do I have to close quickly?

A. Plan to sell your house on the date of your choice. If that’s in a matter of days, no problem, if you need time for any reason, take all you want. Remember with our Network Members, it’s always, and only, win-win.


Q. What if my house needs repairs, do I need to do them?

A. Not if you don’t want to. Our Network Members are accustomed to buying properties in as-is condition, and so you don’t need to do any repairs. Remember, that what our Network Members do is make the selling process as simple, and painless as possible for you. That’s one of the biggest advantages to dealing with us.


Q. Is there a Network Member local to my property?

A. It is very likely that there is, depending on where you live. Either way, there is one that’s close enough. Keep in mind, that in some cases, Network Members buy properties that are not local to them. So the Member that buys your property may be right in your town, and in other cases, they might be in the next county or even the next state. What matters is that you’ve got a buyer that knows what they’re doing and will facilitate an easy transaction that is win-win.


Q. Will the transaction be closed by a professional?

A. Yes. When you sell your house, the closing will always be handled and insured by a competent, professional Title Company or Real Estate Attorney. The Network Member you work with will likely recommend one that is known to him or her as being excellent. Of course you’re always free to choose your own, or use one that you’re already familiar with.


Q. What about the paperwork? Will everything be in writing?

A. Yes, everything is in writing and it’s simple. There will be an agreement between you and the Network Member who buys your property that goes to the Title Company or Attorney who closes the transaction. That closing agent is your advocate and will see to it that everything is done, “by the book”.


Q. When will I get my money?

A. All funds are distributed by the closing professional at the time of closing. In the case where the seller agrees to take payments from the buyer, those payments are made as agreed. Everything is in writing.


Q. How long has www.iBuyHouses.com been in business?

A. Since the mid 90’s. In fact, as we understand it, www.iBuyHouses.com is the 2nd oldest, real estate related, registered domain in existence.


Q. How many Network Members are there in the www.iBuyHouses.com Network?

A. There are a lot. They’re all over the USA, Canada and the UK, and more are joining on every day. They are all serious buyers, and so the more there are, the more likely you are to sell your property in a matter of days.


Q. Do the Network Members work for www.iBuyHouses.com?

A. No. They are completely independent and www.iBuyHouses.com is a matching service that they subscribe to. They are looking for you and we help them find and help you.


Q. When I sell my house, is www.iBuyHouses.com the buyer?

A. No. The Network Member is the buyer and they are completely independent of www.iBuyHouses.com.


Q. Are some of your Network Members Real Estate Agents?

A. Yes, some are. They too are looking to buy properties.


Q. Is the information I submit at www.iBuyHouses.com kept private?

A. Absolutely yes! We only make the info available to our Network Members.


Q: How do I contact my local Network Member?

A: If there is interest in your property, a local Network Member will contact you without delay. Remember, the more completely you fill out the form and the more realistic you are about your property, the better.


Q: I live in a mobile home. Can I still submit a form?

A: Yes. Our Network Members purchase mobile homes too. In fact, they purchase Single Family, Multi Family, Condo, Mobile and Townhomes. Commercial properties too.


Q: My local Network Member has not contacted me yet. What now?

A: Generally when there is no contact made, it’s because the form was not filled out completely or the seller is unrealistic about what they want for their house. You can always submit the form again with more complete info and/or a new asking price at iBuyHouses.com ?


Q: I entered the wrong property information on the form. How do I update it?

A: Simply submit the form again.


Q: I need to sell my home AND buy another one. Can you help?

A: We are here to help you get your house sold quickly and easily. It’s what we do best. As far as you buying another house, we suggest you contact a local Real Estate Agent.


Q: Do your Network Members buy mobile homes?

A:Our network members buy all sorts of properties including mobile homes. All that’s required is that the deal make sense and is a win-win for both you and your local network member.


Q: What if I don’t know all of the information about my house in the form?
