Buy my Bay Area house for cash – 2 Questions To Ask
Looking for a cash buyer for your Bay Area house? Ask yourself these 2 questions first…

If you need to sell your Bay Area house fast because you inherited a house, are relocating and need to sell, lost your job, agent can’t sell your house, etc… then one of the best options that you can consider is thinking about finding someone to buy your Bay Area house for cash.

 

Buy my Bay Area house for cash: The Plan

The first step that you need to take in order to sell your Bay Area house fast is to come up with a game plan by asking yourself these two questions:

 

1. How fast do you need to sell? 

This is one of the most important decisions you need to make… because this really dictates what options you really have. If you have more time… you have more options.

 

If you have less time… your options are a bit fewer… but you still have great options out there.

 

If you need to sell in less than 2 months (or even less time than that), you likely don’t have the time to list your house with an agent.  You’ll likely have to try to sell the house yourself (if you know how to) or sell your house to a local professional house buyer like Skye Homes (or you can call us at and we can make you a fast-fair all-cash offer on your the Bay Area area house).

 

2. How much do you need to sell your house for? 

 

Note that above it says “how much do you need” to sell for.  If you’d like to sell your house for full retail… but you have to sell your house fast and can’t afford to list it with a real estate agent… determine what you need to get out of your house sale.

 

That’ll help guide you to your true options for selling.

 

If the price you “need” to get doesn’t leave room for a real estate agents commission… you may need to look at selling the house for-sale-by-owner (FSBO) or getting an offer from a local real estate house buying company like us… to see if that gets you closer to where you need to end up.

 

On the flip side… if you need near full-retail value and you can wait it out for a retail buyer to come along who can pay that price… list your house on the MLS.  If you don’t have the time… consider talking to us for a fast cash offer on your house (we can make you an offer in less than 24 hours and close in as little as 7 days if you need to, with all cash).

 

3. Look into your options and take action! 

 

Like I mentioned above, if you’re looking for someone who can say “yes”! when you ask them to “buy my Bay Area house for cash”… the main things you need to determine yourself are:

 

  1. How fast you NEED to sell
  2. How much you NEED to get out of the sale

 

Once you know those… look at your options below as a quick guide to help you decide which options may work for you with your house sale.

  • Real Estate Agent: If you can wait 3-4 months to sell and can afford the 5-6% in commissions on the sale. If so, going with an agent will likely get you your highest price on your property.
  • Local Real Estate Investor / House Buyer: If you need to sell fast, we can buy your Bay Area house in as little as 7 days. We won’t be able to pay full-retail on your house… but we don’t charge any fees at all. What we offer you is what we pay you. If you value your time and a quick sale more than making a few extra bucks 6 months from now… call us today at or click the link below to fill out our online fast offer form.
  • For Sale By Owner: If you can wait 3-6 months to sell but can’t afford the 5-6% in commissions to an agent, you may want to try to sell it yourself.

We can help you strategize how to sell your the Bay Area California house fast. Give us a call at for help selling your house fast, or fill out our form to see if your property qualifies for a fast-fair all cash offer.

 

There are several reasons why you may be thinking “buy my Bay Area house for cash – please let it be that simple” (and it can be). Regardless of your reasons, you need to prepare your house for sale just as you would any other product. A thoughtful preparation WILL turn your home into an attractive option for buyers. Doing it this way, you can sell your house fast and get top dollars.

On the other hand, there are some sellers who need a custom solution due to either the property’s condition or the seller’s personal situation, or a combination of the two.

When the property is in really bad shape, they’re likely going to sell to an investor, so it may make sense to save money on commissions and find their own investor.

Some examples of personal situations that we can help with are: hoarding, pre-foreclosure or other financial issues that require a fast home sale, house with non-paying tenants or squatters, severely delinquent property taxes, homeowners who want to rent back the home longer than normal, or sellers who value privacy and/or are embarrassed by their home.

If your seller lead meets these criteria, you should propose the idea of making an introduction to me. You can simply suggest to them that your partner or colleague buys houses and ask if they are interested in speaking with me. Remember, you are not performing real estate agent duties. See our disclaimer below. The main thing to keep in mind at this point is to qualify them as a good fit or not. I can help you with the documentation and process things.
