Are you stuck with a property and find yourself thinking, “Why won’t anyone buy my house?” You’re in luck! I specialize in buying houses for cash in San Anotnio, no matter what condition they’re in. In fact, here is a testimonial story from one of my clients.
I was given permission to write the story of how one of my customers, Regina Martinez, found my services and used them to sell her house. She was about 50 years old when she inherited a house in San Antonio. It wasn’t in her plans to inherit a house and she had absolutely no idea what to do with it.
Inheriting a house is a burden for everyone who doesn’t have any idea how real estate works and what you can do with that house. Some become landlords, thinking it can easily bring them some extra income. Others want to sell their house as quickly as possible.
Regina chose to become a landlord. “Who will buy my house anyways? There are so many repairs that need to be done to bring up the value.” I’ll never forget when she explained her thought process at the time. She decided her brother’s allowed to move in and pay rent. Family comes first after all, right?
Everything was fine for the first two months and then suddenly, her brother never paid any rent. It almost gave her a heart attack when she realized he didn’t even pay the property taxes. He didn’t take care of the house, leaving it in a bind. If you’re not aware yet, here’s what happens if you don’t pay property tax on your home – Regina could’ve lost her home in a foreclosure and tax deed sales. When you don’t pay property tax, the taxing authority holds a tax sale, identified by either tax deed sale or tax lien certificate sale.
How many landlords do you know that have decided they’ll sell their house instead? Sometimes it’s much easier to deal with than tenants that could potentially ruin your home and bring down the overall value – it’s what happened to Regina.
“I’ll never forget how disappointed I was with my brother – I rented out my house and he failed to respect my property. All I wished was for someone to buy my house fast and save me from all stress my brother gave me.”
I mean, at some point, you’ll have to say ‘no’ even if it’s to your family members, right? She searched for ‘buy my house’ and came across Danny Buys Houses.
“At first, I was very skeptical over what you were offering, it sounded impossible,” she commented in her email. I remember having a few email and phone exchanges with her – we went over everything and I offered her plenty of advice on what to do with her house.
Her email subject was: so you can really buy my house fast? She even asked about her other family member who was trying to sell her house in probate. I was honestly surprised at how many questions she had – most of my previous clients probably thought I didn’t know a lot of other things about real estate. I believe in being the expert on everything there is to know about my business – I encourage my clients to challenge me and ask me how I can sell a house in the most impossible state. It’s always possible.
Back to Regina. I don’t think she realized I was based in San Antonio until I mentioned it on the phone – that’s what really convinced her she was on the right track.
“Alright Danny,” Regina laughed after I told her I like a good challenge, “if you like a challenge, here’s another – how on Earth do I tell my brother he’s evicted?”
He was still living in the house and wasted her money? Luckily for me, I’ve dealt with tenants who didn’t want to leave the property before. I guaranteed she won’t have to deal with the nastiness of evicting her brother. It’d be all on me.
I explained to her how Danny Buys Houses’ services work. We buy houses regardless of the situation of your house. Probate, divorce, selling fast – it doesn’t matter. If you’re screaming “buy my house now!” you came to the right place. There are very few companies that buy houses under any condition, but I pride myself in the work I do.
“The thing is,” Regina was still worried, “I don’t want to go through all that paperwork – I’m old and I can’t understand it. I need to sell my house but I want to sell my house for cash.”
When I told her we actually buy houses for cash it was a sealed deal.
“Alright, let me get this straight. You can buy my house for cash under any condition? Are you sure you’re living on this planet?” Really, I remember this conversation like it was yesterday. Regina was alone and had no one else to do this for her – it was up to me to make her life less complicated.
I knew that question was coming. I told her it’s completely up to her – we can have an offer ready in a day or two and then sell her house in a week if needed. If she needed some time to think things over, we can even wait months before making a final decision.
And she did it – we evicted her brother and sold her house in less than a week. She didn’t have to worry about going into foreclosure or dealing with any of her house conditions. The reason I’m writing this is because she sent me an email a few weeks ago – months after she sold her house to Danny Buys Houses.
I’d just like to thank you for taking the time to answer all my questions – I know I was a pain in the butt. Everything is going perfect and even my brother straightened himself out – by some miracle. He felt so sorry he now works for me on my new house garden project – I run a tight dictatorship since our “incident”, trust me 🙂
My friend Angela also told me she used your services and I’m totally glad I found your website. Keep doing what you do.
All the best,
