  • You Don’t Pay Commissions or Fees.

Here are some of the reasons California homeowners turn to us

1. We Buy Your House As-IS

Better Off Home Buyers buy homes As-Is. The traditional real estate market requires that properties for sale have the best conditions, so buyers can quickly choose them. Any major or minor repair that a property needs should be done and paid for by the homeowner. Real estate agents consider it important to keep a house for sale clean, the gardens very green and healthy, and the lights always on to make a good impression on potential buyers. Expenses are to be paid by the home seller.

An investor like us buys your property AS-IS.

Buying a home As-Is means: 

No matter the situation, we buy your house.

2. Sale Commissions And Closing Expenses.

A house sale commission is 6% of its commercial value. This is an expense that the seller’s homeowner must pay. The 6% charged by the real estate agent is not established by any law, but the practice has made that It is the amount to be paid for the real estate agent’s work.

On many occasions, there is more than one real estate agent involved in the negotiation; in this case, the commission should be distributed among the agents involved in the house sale.

The closing costs are expenses and fees associated with buying and selling a home, such as taxes, insurance title, appraisal, and loan fees. 

The closing costs may vary between 2% and 5% of the house’s sale value.

Other closing costs could include:

  • Appraisal: appraising a property can cost anywhere from $500 to $1,200 in California. It depends on the location and price of the property.
  • Inspection: Inspections are generally paid for in person and are not included in closing costs but are an expense incurred by the seller of the property.
  • Property taxes: For a property to be sold, it must be up-to-date with taxes, an expense the seller must make.

3. Closing Time

While a real estate sale takes at least 90 days to sell your home, the same transaction with an investor like Better Off Home Buyers takes just 7 days. In many cases, we have bought homes in just 2 days.

During the home-selling waiting time. Homeowners are obligated to continue with the maintenance of their properties, taxes, and the expenses we enumerated in reason number 2 of this publication.  

Selling your property should be a fast and safe operation. A real estate agent can’t guarantee that your property will ever sell, a lender might deny a mortgage loan to a potential buyer, or it may happen that at the last minute, the buyer regrets it.

With Better Off Home Buyers, the sale of your house is safe because we will buy it. Our company does not depend on lenders. We have enough money to close transactions in California.

People who choose to sell their houses through the traditional real estate market need to spend money and time to impress potential buyers. Some homeowners don’t know that they have the option to sell directly and save a lot of headaches like:

Prepare Your House For Sale

Preparing your home improves its marketability. It would be best to do major or minor renovation; taking care of details will help you get the best price for your home.

Declutter And Organize

Hoards of junk are always a bad sign for prospective buyers. Moreover, decluttering and organizing is one of the most time-consuming activities of preparing your home for sale. Eliminating empty containers, boxes, old and ugly furniture, and trash in every room requires big spending.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is IMG_8133-768x1024.jpg

Store personal items like family photos and things that overload your home. Also, you must organize the closets, store any extra belongings or furniture, and store them in a rented storage unit.

Steam Clean Carpets And Refinish Floors

If you have hardwood floors, refinishing them could go a long way towards getting your house sold quickly. Alternatively, you can steam clean the carpets if you don’t want to waste a lot of money. Both of these actions give your home a more “finished” look that buyers will appreciate. 

When you sell your property to us, you don’t need to clean your floors.

Invest In Home Repairs

You may not have time for renovations, but many minor and major fixes can deter people from paying cash for houses. Inspect your home for loose door handles, leaky faucets, loose tiles, peeled paint, and significant structural damages requires hiring a professional construction company or contractor.

A simple paint coat inside and outside your house costs about $7,000.

Boosting Your Curb Appeal

An excellent first impression is a MUST if you want to impress home-buyers. Start by replacing old hardware such as the house numbers, the overhead light fixture, and the wall-mounted mailbox.

You got to consider installing window boxes, planting flowers, painting the front door, and adding potted plants. Typically these jobs are done between three days to a week.

Market Your House

On top of the above points, make your buyers easily find you. Your real estate agent demands you to utilize the home marketing tips below:

Stage The House

Pare down the furniture to make rooms feel larger, keep the tabletops simple and uncover the windows to let in natural light.

Add a basket with fresh produce in the kitchen, set out an aromatic bar of soap and fresh towels in the bathroom, and whittle down the closets to create breathing room for clothes, linens, and towels. Time and money spent by following your realtor’s demands are on you.

Take Professional Photos And Video

Often, real estate agents suggest sellers hire a professional photographer to take photos and videos of their home – both the exterior and interior. 

The National Association of Realtors 2017 study estimated that homes with one photograph spent an average of 70 days on the market while those with 20 photos spent 32 days on the market. Expect to pay upwards of $1,300 for professional photos and a video.

Write A Killer Listing Description

Your listing description should be warm and inviting. It should paint a picture for prospective buyers – describe the perfect patio for summer cookouts and highlights. Mention specific finishes and skip the nuts and bolts often highlighted by MLS in data fields.

Have on account that you pay the efforts, descriptions, and adds to sell your property. If you hire a realtor, they expect you do about 80% of the work to sell your home.

Host An Open House

A traditional in-person open house gives prospective buyers to scout the place and take measurements. 

Social media has millions of active users who log in daily, making them a powerful marketing tool. 

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is pexels-ketut-subiyanto-4308047.jpg

Upload a Canva flyer with 4-5 photos and highlights of your house to Facebook Marketplace, your Facebook page, and Instagram. Consider creating a squeeze page, which provides valuable information in exchange for a visitor’s email address.

Homeowners pay and use their time to manage the social media pages and host potential buyers.


A traditional real estate sale takes from 90 to 120 days. Additionally, the seller must pay for the house expenses, such as home maintenance, mortgage, utilities, taxes, etc.

When we buy your property, we pay for everything.
