No preparation is necessary to sell your house for cash.  No fixing the leaky roof. No painting. Not even cleaning.  You don’t have to try to make your house appealing to every tire-kicker who might walk through, or make expensive repairs to keep them interested after an inspection.

Did you know cash-strapped home buyers typically ask YOU, the seller, for concessions toward their closing costs? They want YOU to PAY THEM to help them buy your house.  Not us!

Banking rules allow up to 6% of the purchase price for seller concessions and first time buyers usually ask for it!  Keep more of your money by selling for cash to us.  We are NOT first time home buyers.

An inspection contingency is sometimes used by the buyer to give them time to think. They lock up the deal while perhaps negotiating on another property. It take a week or two to do the inspection and get the results, and during this time they may have found something better and may use the inspection to get a better deal or even kill the deal altogether. They may even still be house shopping while that is happening. We don’t do that. You’ll get a real, fair all-cash offer from us. Attend closing and collect your cash. That is it! None of those typical buyer games.

There is nothing to worry about from the bank, either. Here at Flower City House Buyers, we don’t use bank financing. You don’t have to worry about the deal falling apart because of the bank. Your house is sold, as it is, for what you want, when you want.
