Compare Cash Buyers Versus Realtor When Selling Your House

Selling With World Class HomeBuyers vs. The Traditional Northwest Indiana or the Greater Chicago Illinois Area House Buyer Or Agent

Investors offering quick cash for houses isn’t a new concept. People have been buying and flipping houses long before the projects were being chronicled on HGTV and the DIY network.  However, many things over the course of the last decade-and-a-half have played a part in the uptick in the quick cash for houses phenomenon. It started gaining momentum in the wake of the 2008 housing crisis, where investors were developing plans to help financially strapped homeowners who were defaulting on their mortgages and heading toward foreclosure.

Since then, many reputable cash home buying companies have started operating to help distressed homeowners and other people who needed to unload property quickly. But with these reputable companies, many fraudulent ones surfaced as well—muddying the waters, so to speak, of the legitimacy of the cash home buying option.

Who We Are

In a nutshell, we are a real estate investing company operating in Indiana and Illinois. We are a business, so naturally a key component of what we do is making money, but that’s not all that drives us. We often hear, “I’m selling my house in Chicago and I want to sell my house fast.” If that’s you, and you want to know how to sell your house without an agent, we can help. We are passionate about buying and flipping houses.

Rehab projects excite us and we are driven by the transformations we can create. We aren’t suit and tie people. We like to just keep it real and have fun doing what we love. The fact that doing what we love can potentially help people out of a tough spot is the icing on the cake. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but when it comes to the business, we are on point. We’ve been at this for many years and have a slew of satisfied customers in our wake. We consider their high reviews of our company the most powerful testament to how we do business, our legitimacy, and our philosophy.

Over the years we have tailored and honed our rehab strategies to minimize the costs of repairs while maximizing our profit return. We know what works and what doesn’t. We buy houses as-is because our intentions are to flip them, so that eliminates a lot of tedious legwork and wasted time for the sellers. If you are looking to sell your house fast for cash with no red tape to traverse or hoops to jump through, joining forces will be mutually beneficial for both of us. Why? Because if our flipping strategies can keep our costs down and the profits up, we can offer you a lot more for your house.

We don’t expect you to just take our word for it. In this climate, we know how important it is for sellers to do their due diligence and choose the right option for their particular and unique situation. It’s equally important that we do ours as a home buying company, so we get it. Part of our recommendations to our potential customers—after we give them an offer—is to shop around with our competition and even check in with a real estate agent to get a price quote. We are very confident that we can almost always offer the highest price.

We are cash home buyers by profession, but we are also regular people who understand that life happens. We’ve all faced our fair share of challenges and are sensitive to the fact that situations happen outside of our control. There are a lot of reasons people need to sell their homes fast for cash. Whether it be financial hardship, a new diagnosis, a sudden move, a divorce…. We can help make this transitional period simple and more comfortable. We do business by the Golden Rule, by treating others the way we’d like to be treated.

This means we come from a place of compassion and empathy in doing business with you, and our offers are always fair. We did not build our business and reputation by capitalizing on people in tight spots. We got to where we are by treating our customers with the dignity and respect we feel all human beings deserve. And that is the core of who we are at World Class Home Buyers Inc.

icon 7 days

From offer to close and cash in your hand in as little as 7 days

You can get rid of the headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, you get the drill. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close… you have to figure in all of the costs of holding that property during the time you have that property listed and are waiting for the property to close.

icon - sell as is

Don’t worry about fixing anything up or cleaning your house again and again for buyer after buyer

We don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer? great! we love projects)... we’d like to make an offer on your house. This saves you time and money that you can keep in your pocket.

icon no fees

Don’t worry about paying those pesky closing fees (we’ve got you covered)

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in Indiana/Illinois, we make it easy for you. We pay for all of the closing costs. What we offer you is what you get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property). Pretty refreshing eh?


What We Do

We are a reputable house buying company operating in Indiana and Illinois, and we offer cash for your house. We buy homes as-is so we can virtually eliminate many of the steps in a traditional house selling process. We aren’t concerned about the condition because we are in the business of flipping, and our interest in the house is to transform it from its current state. While we sometimes do home inspections, we are not scared off from even sizable repairs, as a conventional home buyer would be. This is because our intentions are different. We aren’t looking to move in; we are looking to flip it. It is an investment opportunity for us, so we go into it expecting a certain level of repairs with the associated costs and time.

We have cash on-hand to invest in properties located anywhere within the Indiana and Illinois state lines, so we require no loans or approval from financial institutions. This is an ideal situation for a seller if you are in a time crunch and can’t wait for the lengthy process of financing approval. Cash buying eliminates the need for any bank approvals or financing contingencies. This allows us to help you move quickly through the selling process. While conventional financing can take upwards of 90+ days, we can typically close a cash deal with the seller in less than 30.

How It Can Help You

We are a real estate investing company that can also save you money with our all-cash offers for your home. Traditional selling processes are complicated and time-consuming. They typically involve real estate agents, brokers, underwriters, and banks, to name a few. And, all of these roles in the selling process operate across different channels, so it’s not an ideal situation for you if time is of the essence in closing a deal.

When listing with an agent, there are certain things you’ll be required to do to prepare your home for showings. These tasks include cleaning, decorating, and staging the home to impress prospective buyers. If you are currently living in the home, you’ll have to deal with the inconveniences of showings. If you have kids or pets, that complicates the situation even more and compounds the stress of selling your home. We can help you sell your house without an agent.

If you’ve made it to an offer, there will be a home inspection. The conventional buyer will hire a home inspection company to come in and list the repairs that they recommend. Oftentimes, there will be a lot of things the buyer will want you to fix in order to move forward with the sale. They will use the repair recommendations as a negotiating tool to try to get the price down. Negotiations can drag the timeline out extensively. When you opt for a cash buyer, you don’t have to worry about repairing anything. We buy houses for cash, and we buy them as-is. We anticipate repairs and have the costs of them worked into our cash offers. We aren’t scared off by even larger scale issues because we have strategies in place to mitigate those costs, and we have expertise in the flipping of those types of properties.

Probably the most attractive of the benefits we offer by paying cash for your home is your savings. That’s more money in your pocket so you can put it where you need it. When we pay you cash for your home, we save you the costs associated with a traditional home sale. You won’t have to pay closing costs or real estate commissions. You won’t have to pay out of pocket AT ALL to decorate, stage, or make repairs to satisfy unreasonable home buyer demands.

Benefits of Selling to Us

We pride ourselves in the transparent way we do business. We operate as a company with a goal to make a profit, but we also are driven by the opportunity that presents us with: to help people who might be in a tough spot. We are people just like you. We are real, we have feelings, we’ve had our share of struggles, and we care. We want that to be reflected in the way you are treated when you choose to work with us.

Although we have a lot of fun working our business, we take you very seriously, and we will make sure to treat you with the respect, compassion, and courtesy you deserve as you walk through this process. Our goal is to make it as simple and quick as possible so you can begin the next chapter of your life looking forward. Credibility and honesty are big parts of what makes our business successful and we hope that you’ll consider putting your trust in us when you sell your home.

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similar, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.

Here at World Class HomeBuyers, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
