Who Are the Helpful Home Buyers?
Helpful Home Buying is a local New England based home buying and selling office. We know that not every homeowner in Derby is looking to sell has the time or resources to woo home buyers and not every property is attractive enough to sell on the consumer market. But that doesn’t mean that a home’s value is completely bust. In fact, many homes that have been sitting on the market for too long have a huge amount of potential. But sellers and their real estate agents don’t have what they need to unlock that potential.
The Helpful Home Buying team does. We can quickly assess what it will take to take any home in any condition from flop to flip. Whether you’ve got move-in ready home in a challenging location or a vacant home that’s halfway to derelict, we will flip it so you don’t have to.
Our team is dedicated to providing homeowners in Derby with the buying process you need. If you need time, we will put off the purchase until you’re ready. If you need to get the home off your hands fast, we’ll expedite the purchase. And if you need cash, we’ll pay for the property in cash.
We Buy Houses: Any House, Any Time
We buy houses in Derby without the usual rigmarole. If you call us, we will buy. Any New England home, any time. The key is that we’re not buying to live in the house, or to rent it out as an investment property. The Helpful Home Buying team includes highly accomplished home flippers.
What this means, if you’re not familiar with the term, is that we love to take shabby homes and fix them up to beautiful move-in ready residences. Then we sell them back into the consumer real estate market so that families can happily live in them once again. That is why we buy any house in the New England area, because we are confident that we can turn it around and resell it back into the mainstream market no matter how much work is between the purchase and reselling.
- We’ll buy homes that are beyond what any normal buyer would take because we know what to do.
- We buy nearly move-in ready homes that just aren’t selling.
- We buy inherited homes that you don’t have time to empty and update.
The Process to Sell Your Home to Helpful Home Buying
One of the most common questions we get is “What happens if you buy my house?” Homeowners have every reason to be curious, as we’re offering something that strays from the norm of the consumer real estate market. Instead of acting as normal buyers who send over inspectors and participate in negotiations, we have a very efficient process designed to conform to your home selling needs.
