What are the main reasons for selling to a homebuying company?

How you choose to sell your home is always a personal decision, but here are a few scenarios that could make working with a house buying company seem more appealing.

  • You’re relocating for a job or other time-sensitive life change.
  • You inherited a home and want to liquidate that asset.
  • You don’t want to deal with the hassle of staging and showings.
  • You lack the time, budget or motivation to make needed repairs.
  • You’re selling a problematic rental property.
  • You want to avoid going into receivership.
  • You found your dream home and need to make an offer fast.
  • You need cash to get out of debt.
  • You’re going through a divorce.
