Why choose a cash sale? Here's the advantage

Timeframe

If you are experiencing a time sensitive situation, whether that is unexpected down-sizing or preparing an inherited property for sale, a cash buy is the best option for you. Within days you can have less stuff and more cash.

Cash on the Spot

Unexpected expenses come up and having a connection with buyers who pay cash up front is a valuable asset. We come to you and buy that day. 

The Simplest Option

If simplicity is your goal a cash buyout is best. As dealers, most of our clients sell to us directly because it is the most basic transaction you can have. An estate sale might be a better option for some situations but can take longer for your net profits to reach your pocket. 

FAQs

  • Because we are cash buyers we never charge any fees to our sellers. Even when driving half way across country all those fees are on us.
