FAQ on Selling Your Colorado Springs Home for Cash
If I enter my information, am I obligated to sell?
No. We give you a written cash offer with absolutely no obligation on your part. You can see the offer and then decide how you feel about it. If you want to accept the offer, then we will present you with paperwork to make it official. Scheduling a walkthrough and getting an offer does not require any commitment from you whatsoever.
What kinds of fees will I have to pay when selling my home?
There are no fees on your end when you sell to us. Traditional home sales have titling fees, inspections, realtor fees, and so much more. When you sell to Sell My House Colorado Springs, we handle all of the closing costs and fees ourselves. The offer that you receive from us is the amount of money we will give you for the house. There are no hidden items.
How is the offering price for my house determined?
We value your house the same way as anyone else in real estate. We look at the property itself — the square footage and layout. We compare that to the market value for houses in Colorado Springs and your neighborhood in particular. We calculate what repairs the house needs, and then we put all of that together to make you an offer.
What do you do with the home after you purchase it?
We are property investors, so we try to improve the property’s overall value. In many cases, we fix up the home and then sell it. In other cases, we rent it. Some houses have to be substantially rebuilt. Others are nearly ready to be sold or rented right away. It really depends on whether renting or selling will be the most valuable for the property itself. We determine that action, and we follow through on it.
Can I sell my home if I am behind on the mortgage?
Yes. The state of Colorado allows you to sell the home and settle the mortgage all the way until the day before your house is auctioned. The limiting factor is that you have to file a written intent to cure at least 15 days before the auction. Provided you follow those rules, you can sell your home and prevent foreclosure.
How long does it take to sell my home?
We can purchase your home in as little as two days. After you contact us, we will schedule a walk through of the house, and then we will make you an offer. If you accept, closing can move as fast as you like. We can finish in a day, or if you need more time, we can slow down and match your schedule.
Do I have to move out right after selling my house?
No. We regularly work with homeowners to schedule a move-out date that accommodates their situation. Sometimes, people need to sell the house faster than they can move out of it. If that’s the case, we’ll be happy to work with you. We aren’t buying your house to move into it ourselves, so we have a lot of flexibility when it comes to closing and moving schedules.
Can I sell my house if I live out of state?
Yes! In fact, selling your home fast for cash will be much easier than going through traditional realtor methods. We already know the ins and outs of buying and selling homes in Colorado. We can walk you through the entire process and simplify everything. In some cases, we can buy your house without you having to travel to Colorado at all. You can sell your house and be free of the burden.
What types of houses do you buy?
We buy all kinds of houses. On a regular basis, we buy houses that are in foreclosure or nearing foreclosure. We buy houses that need major repairs. We even buy houses that are condemned. We buy houses in every neighborhood in the Colorado Springs area.
We also buy houses that are in great shape or even brand new. If it’s a house, we’re interested.
