FAQ on Selling Your Houston Home for Cash
If I enter my information, am I obligated to sell?
When you enter your information into our contact form, you’re never obligated to sell us your house. When we extend an offer, it’s a no-obligation offer, which means you can choose to accept or decline it with no repercussions.
What kinds of fees will I have to pay when selling my home?
When you sell your house to UV Home Buyers, you won’t pay any fees whatsoever to sell your house. When we extend a fair cash offer to purchase your home, the number you see is exactly the amount of cash you’ll get.
Compared to working with a traditional realtor, choosing to sell your house to our team can save you thousands in commission fees and closing costs. Our offers are completely transparent, which means you’ll never get hit with hidden or add-on fees when you sign the closing paperwork.
How is the offering price for my house determined?
At UV Home Buyers, we determine the offering price for your house based on a variety of factors. While the current condition of your home plays a central role in determining its value, several other factors come into play as well, including:
- The value of other homes in your neighborhood and general area
- The layout of your house
- The current real estate market
- Whether we need to request a payoff from your mortgage lender (if you’re facing foreclosure)
What do you do with the home after you purchase it?
After we buy your house, we might do a few things with it. If your home requires repairs or renovations, we may choose to perform those improvements before relisting the house for sale. If your home is in great condition, we may choose to rent it out or sell the property to another real estate investor.
Can I sell my home if I am behind on the mortgage?
At UV Home Buyers, we can help you even if you’re behind on your mortgage and worried about foreclosure. In fact, we see this situation quite often. Depending on the number of mortgage payments you’ve missed, we can work with your lender to find a solution that works for all involved parties.
Sometimes the best way to avoid foreclosure is to conduct a fast sale, so if you need to sell your house fast, get in touch with our team to discuss your options.
How long does it take to sell my home?
When you work with our team, we can provide you with a no-obligation, fair cash offer within 24 hours of your initial contact. If you need to sell your house fast, we can typically close on the sale and get you your cash in as few as seven days.
If you need time to decide whether our offer meets your needs, feel free to take it. We do our best to conduct the sale according to your needs and timeline, so the time required to sell your house depends on you, not us.
Do I have to move out right after selling my house?
No, you do not need to move out of your house immediately after closing the sale. As part of our process, we work with you to create a move-out plan that works with your needs and schedule. If you choose to accept our offer, let us know what you need, and we’ll do our best to accommodate. We can afford to be flexible.
Can I sell my house if I live out of state?
Yes! You can sell your Houston house to UV Home Buyers even if you don’t live in Texas. We frequently work with out-of-state homeowners and can conduct the entire process remotely if necessary.
The same idea applies if you own a home anywhere else in Texas. Contact our team with your information, let us know you live out of the area, and we’ll do our best to accommodate your needs.
What types of houses do you buy?
At UV Home Buyers, we buy all types of houses, no matter what kind of condition they’re in or where they’re located. Whether your house needs a ton of work or it looks brand new, we’re ready to extend a fair cash offer to purchase it.
We can buy houses in any condition because we’re real estate investors. If your property is zoned as a residential dwelling, we’re interested in buying it.
