I wanted to sell my house and move down south to be closer to my girlfriend.
I knew that it was going to take a little bit of time to sell the house if I went with a traditional real estate agent. I didn’t want to take 6 months to sell the property, so I contacted a company that buys houses for cash. There were several local companies in Jacksonville, Florida that buy and invest in properties that need repairs. I knew that my home was going to need a bunch of repairs if I was going to sell it for close to market value. I honestly wanted to get what I owed for the property and I wasn’t interested in making a lot of money. The Jacksonville real estate investor came to look at my home. The guy was more interested in the property than he was the house. He talked about tearing down some walls and making room for a larger living space. I honestly didn’t care what the cash home buyer did with the property as long as he gave me the money that I needed to move to be with my girlfriend. The cash offer only took two weeks and I had a check in my hand by the end of the month. Selling my house for cash was an incredibly easy process and I didn’t have to worry about any of the steps of the process. The real estate company handled every single step and detail. I signed the paperwork and picked up a check from the lawyer’s office.
