We buy houses in California regardless of their location or condition. It basically boils down to that. Selling your house without having to deal with traditional listing hassles is the ideal alternative for those looking to sell a house. Whether you have plenty of time or don’t, we are the perfect option to avoid the annoyances and expenses of listing your house with a real estate agent here in California.

3. How Do I Know If A “We Buy Houses” Company Is Right For Me?

There is no pressing need to sell our house in CA, nor are we in a hurry to do so!

In California, most of the sellers from whom we bought houses were not desperate to sell (at all), nor were they trying to avoid foreclosure.  In most cases, our clients choose us because they do not want to deal with repairs, constant walkthroughs, or a traditional sales process.
Since we buy houses as-is, regardless of their condition, location, or issue (if any), we are often a great option to consider when trying to sell quickly.
Let us figure out the numbers and how much we can offer you in cash for your home in CA, and we will advise you if listing with an agent would be a better choice or not. After all, it doesn’t hurt to get an offer from us, our offers are completely free without any obligation to accept!

4. Why Should I Choose You?
Truthfully, you are absolutely free to choose another provider!
We are not desperate.  Each deal does not have to make a huge profit. I won’t tell you why you should choose us, and you are free to make up your own mind.


But I will tell you what makes us different:

We Are The Top Ranking Home Buyers In California!
I know, I know, everyone says this, but I’m sure you saw it for yourself when you found us online at the top of Google! Then what does this mean? This means that many of those who dealt with us loved us. All of our promises are kept and the transaction is completed. A lot of people choose us.
Our focus is on you!
Let’s make sure your house is sold for cash. We will buy your California house for cash, or you may receive a higher offer from another company we have checked, spoken with, and trained. Isn’t that nice of us!
You do not have to choose us, but if you do, you can fill in this form and we will take care of you.
We are sincere, honest, and care about what we do. Investing is what we do. Making money is undoubtedly important, but not at the expense of everything and that doesn’t mean we cannot go out of our way to genuinely help you without expecting anything in return!

5. Is my house going to be listed on the MLS if I sell to Cash Home Buyers?
Your house will not be listed on the MLS. It is not our business to act as agents.  If any work needs to be done on your house, we will rehab it and sell it at a profit again. In addition to cash, we buy houses using seller financing, wholesaling, and other methods. All of this ensures your house will sell quickly!

6. What sets you apart from real estate agents?
A real estate agent does not actually buy your house. Your house is listed on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), in the hopes that a buyer will be interested. Fees and commissions are charged by agents. A California real estate agent will charge you closing costs and title fees, and your house will be walked through multiple times for quite some time while it is on the market.
We are individuals with the cash and connections to other cash buyers interested in purchasing houses, rehabbing them, and reselling them for a profit. Investing and buying properties with cash is what we do. We are the ones who buy your house. Rather than go through the entire “agent” process, we jump to the next step immediately to the offer and closing on your property you have for sale in California. We take care of the conventional costs associated with selling a house, such as closing costs and home inspections. The most notable difference is that there are no fees or commissions involved. In this case, the whole agent process is skipped.

7. Is it better to list my house in CA with an agent?
Truthfully, we don’t know… (yet)! To give you a solid answer, we would need to take a close look at your house, your situation, your timeline, your location, your expectations, needs, and requirements. We will be happy to offer you our professional recommendation.
Many people do not understand the advantages and disadvantages of listing a house on the MLS. Please let us know if you need assistance with this. Simply fill out our form below to get a response now and we will contact you with our recommendations on how to proceed regarding selling your house in California.

10. Do I Need To Clean Before I Move Out?
Not at all. You don’t need to worry about anything. Take what you want and leave the rest. We mean it. We found food in the fridge, clothes on the floor, mattresses, desks, furniture, even a raccoon carcass in a wall once. Scared our contractor, but we don’t take it personally. Having seen it all, believe me when I say we have. Why not make things easier by letting us deal with the rest of what you do not want to part with?

11. Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
You do not have to pay anything. We pay all of the costs (we get our money back when we sell the rehabbed house).

12. When you buy properties, do you pay a fair price?
I appreciate you asking this. The prices we pay are definitely fair. Please understand, however, that fair price and market value are not the same things. If the house needs repair, we subtract all the expenses associated with the repairs from its market value and arrive at a reasonable price.

13. Will you still buy my house if it’s in terrible condition?
In California, we buy houses in any condition, good or bad. Our main business is flipping, so the more room for improvement, the more attractive your house is to us. So, yes, definitely! We’d love to buy your house even if it’s in poor condition, and you might be surprised by how much we’ll offer for it! Get an instant offer on your CA house by filling out our form!

14. What is the process for determining the price to offer on my house?
Basically:

How To Sell Your House Fast Without Making Any Repairs- MCB Homes Inc

1. We Calculate Your Home’s Market Value in CA.
It all starts with a CMA ( Comparable Market Analysis). In general, we examine all the homes within one mile of your house that have recently sold and are similar(Same square footage, same beds/baths, etc.)
We then look at their sold price. This gives us a very accurate market value of your house if your house is in the exact same condition of these other houses that have been sold.
2. We Determine The Cost Of Repairs.
The cost of repairs is the cost associated with bringing your house to a very similar condition as all the other houses in your area that are similar to yours that have recently been sold. We note what needs to be repaired during the walkthrough. Our contractors help us accomplish this. We only repair what really needs to be repaired in order to keep costs low.
By keeping the costs down, we can present to you the best offer possible.
3. We Make You An Offer.
We present you with our offer based on our findings, which we share with you. Having a transparent company means we explain in full detail how we arrive at the offer and show you the market data and repairs. This is an offer that is not obligated to be accepted. Since everything is free, you can either accept or decline the offer.
You will receive your cash and be completely done with the house if you accept the offer! Thanks to you, your house was sold without hassle, commissions, or fees.

15. Here is a popular question:
Do you buy a lot of houses? What will you do with my house?
