Are "We Buy Houses" Companies a Scam(Part 2)?

Client Story: Assisting John in Selling His Property During Challenging Times

This is part 2 in the series “Are "We Buy Houses" Companies a Scam?” where we share with you an client story that highlights the power of compassion, quick solutions, and the value companies like ours can add to those in similar situations.

Meet John, a determined homeowner who found himself facing a challenging situation. His wife had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, and life had taken an unexpected turn. In addition to caring for his wife and managing medical appointments, John owned a property comprising three acres, with his own house nestled beside it.

To add to his plate, John also had a fixer-upper mobile home that he had been using as a rental property. However, due to his wife's illness and the demands it brought, he had stopped renting out the mobile home and needed to sell it. The weight of the situation was overwhelming, and John was unsure of where to turn.

John received a postcard from our company via mail, and its message resonated with him. As a result, he made the decision to reach out and connect.

After a heartfelt conversation, we expressed interest in the property and requested some pictures. Although we didnt have any team members in his location (El Dorado, Arkansas), technology bridged the gap. Through the power of visuals and online research, we were able to evaluate the property's potential and determine an offer for the mobile home.

It became evident that the mobile home required extensive repairs. The floors were torn up, and it hadn't received any attention in quite some time. Although there were added expenses to consider, we were understanding of his situation and decided to honor John's asking price.

The motivation behind this decision went beyond a simple transaction. We knew that John was facing mounting medical bills and wanted to help him through this trying time. The offer was made with empathy and a genuine desire to make a positive impact on John's life.

With the agreement reached, we promptly emailed the purchase agreement to John. It was a seamless process, and within less than 30 days, the transaction was completed. The property was sold as-is, eliminating the need for John to invest additional time, effort, or resources into the mobile home.
