Selling your home for cash can be a stressful thing to do for homeowners. After Sharon Quinn’s experience trying to sell her home for cash, she knew something had to be done to protect sellers from what she dealt with. Quinn co-founded Houses for Cash TV to help home sellers screen their potential cash buyers and shorten the time it takes to sell their homes.
With a newborn in the home, the idea of strangers walking through her house every day for a couple of months selling the traditional way was not ideal for Quinn. She decided to sell her property to a cash buyer in hopes of a quick relocation and a convenient solution. However, her personal experience of selling her home for all cash wasn’t as easy as she had expected.
“One of the troubling facts about the home for cash business is a large portion of the investors that claim to be home cash buyers are not and are actually looking to tie up the property and assign the purchase contract to someone else for profit,” says Quinn, a former fashion model, TV host and spokesperson.
The process was taxing and she soon discovered that many cash buyers try to take advantage of the situation by making very low offers. After a year of researching the cash buyer industry she decided to co-found Houses for Cash TV which offers a service that helps cash sellers verify if a cash buyer is a legitimate investor or an opportunist. Houses for Cash TV has developed a nationwide database of verified cash buyer investors.
Houses for Cash TV also helps ensure that cash sellers can close on their property within one to three weeks, compared to the typical two to six months. The company buys all types of properties in any condition, including single-family homes, condos, rentals, townhouses, duplexes and multi-family homes. A cash seller doesn't have to worry about making repairs; the company purchases properties as they are.
With her years of experience as a model, spokesperson, and more recently a TV and video host, Quinn is excited to embark on this next career journey by offering this valuable national service to help cash sellers feel confident they are selling to a legitimate, all cash buyer.
