I get asked all the time when people see my signs all over town whether or not we’re actually buying houses here in the area and the answer is always YES! We buy houses all over the Tampa Bay area so if you see a sign in an area where you need to sell, we’re actively buying in that area. In fact, there are a lot of areas that we’re buying but we don’t put our signs out simply because the “Bandit Sign Police” (a.k.a. local city code enforcement) pick them up really fast and throw them away or they try to fine us for putting the signs around town. So just because you don’t see our signs in your area doesn’t mean that we won’t buy houses there. We will 🙂
Having said that, there are people who put out those types of signs that say “We Buy Houses” or some other gimmick phrase, but unfortunately they’re really not buying houses. Not all of these guys/gals are actual buyers. They may represent a bunch of investor buyers that are wanting to buy the house, but they pose as actual buyers themselves or they may be just getting you to sign a contract in hopes they can find someone to resell it to quickly. We actually buy houses! It’s how we make our living doing what we do. We buy houses, then fix them up and either sell them or sometimes keep them as rentals. Each and every house we buy is different and every situation is different. Sometimes we buy houses by taking over people’s mortgage payments and give them debt relief.
Either way you look at it, those “We Buy Houses” signs are legitimate in one way or another, but I recommend you call the professionals that are actually buying houses each month here in the area instead of taking a gamble of hoping that someone on a “Joe Buys Houses” sign will actually close on your house so you can move on with your life. We’ll buy your house in any condition, as is, with no contingencies. Give us a call today at 1-800-OUT-FAST or fill out a form on our website if you need to sell fast.
