Selling My House for Cash in the Bay Area

Not always.

I’ll tell you how to sell any property for cash, some reasons to refuse a cash offer – and when you shouldn’t say no.


If you’re selling a property in the Bay Area to an end buyer (the person living in the home), chances are good it won’t be bought with cash.


Most transactions close with a bank loan, because most buyers don’t have the funds.


This isn’t news.


Even most investors don’t close transactions with cash. It’s easy (and financially wiser) to let a bank share the risk, even if you have the money – most investors spread themselves too thin.


At Skye Homes we don’t spread ourselves too thin, because our primary goal is to build stable communities around the Bay Area.


In most cases, we’ll pay cash for your Bay Area California property.


The Benefits Of An All Cash Sale Of Your House

The benefits of a cash sale are real:


  • money fast
  • when you need it most

You don’t have to deal with the hassles of waiting months for a buyer to get a mortgage, only to be told that the lender eliminated the program and you’re back to square one.


You don’t have to list your house with a real estate agent and pay a huge commission.


You don’t have to deal with a lot of people just “kicking the tires” and checking out your property for fun. We don’t waste your time. This is our business.


You don’t need to paint, make repairs, or even clean up. We take properties just as they are. You won’t waste money on junk haulers or contractors.


You don’t need to deal with any paperwork. We have it all covered.

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.
