Unfortunately, some of our sellers sell their houses to us because of unexpected life circumstances, sometimes they to sell a house due to illness. In Jacqueline’s case, her mother was diagnosed with an illness requiring aggressive treatment, and she wanted to sell her Houston house as soon as possible so she could move home to her family in San Antonio. Selling to Big State Home Buyers was particularly helpful for her, because she had a lot of flexibility regarding when to close. Read her story below:
When my mother was diagnosed with cancer in July and given 1-2 years to live, I wanted to go home to San Antonio as soon as possible. I looked at selling it for more money on the open market, but it was going to be too much of a hassle. I needed something quick and easy that I wouldn’t be stressed over. Doctors put my mom on an aggressive treatment, so I was already going through some major adjustments. I needed this to be simple.
Getting it all taken care of was pretty easy. You returned my phone calls and I was able to ask a lot of questions. I knew what I was getting into, and just wanted to make sure I wasn’t getting shafted. I just needed enough money to pay off the house and move to San Antonio, and you were able to help me with that. It also going to be great on my credit because everything was paid off. Joel (the agent) made me feel really comfortable. In fact, we could have closed even earlier, but I needed time to get to everything together and take care of everything preparing for the move.
This house was my pride and joy. It was a hard decision to do it this way, but I ended up being very comfortable with the whole process. The people were very friendly, professional and sympathetic with what was going on in my life to try to help me make this transition as easy and smooth as possible.
I would always get plenty of notice when someone would come to the house, and I would always report back after they left. It might be better to send an agent to the house with the investors.
