WHERE CAN I FIND HOME INVESTORS WHO BUY A HOME QUICKLY?
Home investors are located throughout the country, but it is sometimes difficult to determine which companies are reputable and ethical in their business practices. The sale of your home is a major transaction. Big State Home Buyers is an established local business with an excellent reputation in Houston and around Texas. We are your trusted local source when you want to sell your home quickly and at the fairest price possible.

HOW AND WHEN DO I RECEIVE MY CASH?
In almost all cases we make a cash offer within 24 hours of assessing your houses's value and often close within just a few days. Payments are made by same-day wire transfer or, if no wire option is available, by check. Please note that federal law requires wire transfers to be filed between the legal hours of 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Wire transfers filed later than 3 p.m. will be sent at 10 a.m. the following day. Also, please be aware that if payment is made by check, your bank may place a temporary hold on a large transaction. This practice falls outside the control of Big State Home Buyers and questions about check holds should be addressed by your bank.
Needed to sell home due to job offer! Big State Home Buyers bought my home quickly and wired me the money.
“I received an out-of-state job offer and needed to sell my home quickly. Instead of listing it with a real estate agent, I sold it to Big State Home Buyers. I got my money quickly and was able to have it wired to me so I could immediately start looking for a new house that’s close to my new job.”
Home needed some work. Selling as-is saved me a ton of money.
“My home was in need of a lot of repairs, and a realtor told me I needed to do a lot of work before listing it. Big State Home Buyers didn’t make me feel embarrassed about the condition of my home and bought it as-is. They said they bought homes in all different types of condition, and that was certainly true in my case.”
Won't I receive less money if I sell my home to home investors?
What are some common misconceptions about home investors?
Some home investors aren’t legitimate business people who treat people fairly. That’s true of any industry, however. If you do your research by looking for evidence of a good reputation (good rating with the Better Business Bureau, satisfied sellers, etc.), you should be able to find a reputable company.
They only buy homes that are in bad shape
Home investors do buy some homes that are “fixer-uppers,” but they buy all types of homes. Even if your home is newer and is excellent condition, it’s still worth finding out what a home investor will offer you.
They don’t provide any services
This can vary according to the company, but some home investors provide valuable services such as talking to the title company and attorney if you’re selling an inherited home with title issues.
Will I Get Less Money if I Sell to Home Investors?
You’ll probably be offered less money upfront than you would likely list your home for on the open market. However, this is only part of the picture. Home investors can offer quick cash and save you money in the following ways:
No Realtor commission
You’ll save the cost of a Realtor’s commission, which is often 6% or higher than what the home sells for.
No need to make improvements or repairs
Any house that’s been lived in will need repairs before it’s listed, leaving you to hope you recoup the money when the home sells. Home investors buy your home and make repairs themselves, so you’ll save time and money.
Monthly savings on home-related expenses
Every month your home stays on the market costs you money. You’ll have to pay the monthly mortgage, electricity, home insurance, and other related costs.
Selling to home investors may result in less cash up front, but you’ll save time and money in the long run by avoiding small costs associated with keeping it on the market.
It is true that investors may, in fact, offer a lower purchase price than private buyers going through traditional realtor channels. Homeowners who offer their houses for quick sale often do so to avoid costly repairs, or when speed is of essence for personal, financial or legal reasons. It is understandable that investors who buy a house as-is therefore take the cost of repairs and other expenses into consideration when extending an offer. At the same time, reputable investors like Big State Home Buyers, won’t charge a commission on the sale like traditional realtors typically do, and even shoulder the cost of title fees. A quick exit also benefits house owners who wish to avoid further mortgage payments, utilities, insurance expenses and more, leaving more cash in their pockets in the long run.
