Frequently Asked Questions

Home Sale

Some of the most common questions people ask us about a home sale in the Tampa area for cash include: 

Are You Real Estate Agents?

No, we are not real estate agents. We do not list your house for sale, and we do not put it on the MLS. Instead of working with a real estate agent, you will work with our team to get an immediate cash offer for your house. We are not here to sell your house, we are here to buy it from you. We can help you save time by immediately taking your house off of your hands. 

What Types of Homes Do You Buy?

At We Buy Houses Today, we purchase a wide variety of homes in the Tampa, Florida area. We purchased brand new homes, very old homes, homes designed for multiple families, condemned houses, homes that need a lot of repairs, and traditional single-family homes. This means that there is a good chance we can purchase your house as well. 

What Do You Do With The House After It’s Purchased?

It depends on the type of house you have. Every house is different, and we have a variety of options available. If your house requires a lot of repairs, we will fix it up. Then, we might try to sell it. Or, we could hold on to your house and rent it out to someone else who is looking for a place to live. Because every situation is different, what we do with the house after we purchase it can vary from situation to situation. 

Can I Sell if I’m Out of State?

Yes. Even if you do not live in the local Tampa, Florida area, you can still sell your house to us. We understand that you might not be able to make it back to the Tampa, Florida area immediately, and we can make the process as easy as possible for you. That way, you don’t have to worry about traveling back to Tampa to sell your house. 

What If I’m Behind On My Home? 

If you are behind on your mortgage payments, there are multiple options available. For example, you might be able to take the cash from the sale to pay off the balance of your mortgage before keeping the remainder. Or, we can request a reinstatement and payoff amount from the mortgage company, working with them on your behalf. We will work with you to explore every option available to make sure you are in a comfortable financial situation after the sale of your house. 

Even if your house is in foreclosure, we might still be able to purchase it from you. We have worked with buyers who are already in the middle of the foreclosure process, and we may still be able to buy your house from you. If you would like to learn more about how we can help you, reach out to us to speak to our team. 

How Long Does It Take To Sell My House?

If you decide to work with us to sell your house, we can move through the process as quickly as you would like. If you would like to sell the house quickly, we can schedule a closing to happen very quickly. If you need extra time before the closing process, we can pick a date that is more convenient for you. Because you decide to work with the team from We Buy Houses Today, we are flexible, and we will do what is best for you. 

Do I Need To Make Repairs?

No, you do not need to make the repairs on your own. One of the nice things about working with We Buy Houses is that we can handle all of the repairs for you. No matter how bad you think the repairs might be, and no matter what they look like, we will always make you an offer. When we determine the value of your home, we will take the approximate cost of the repairs into consideration. Even though you are certainly welcome to repair your house, we will never ask you to do so before you sell it.
