We Buy Houses Sacramento, That’s My Sign!
One of the funniest comedic acts of the past 15 years is Bill Engvall’s “Here’s Your Sign”. Personally I say and do some silly things and when I catch myself, I smile because I know that I own a lot of hilarious signs. Sometimes, when having a moment, I’ll look at my wife and just say, “Sweetheart, here is my Sign”!
It’s human nature, no one likes to look foolish. As human beings we spend a lot of time just trying to look good or sometimes just avoid looking silly. It’s a big motivation and most people don’t want to put that big sign in their front yard advertising to the world that they have had a series of those moments for prolonged periods of time.
I always try to balance my perspective by incorporating the lessons above with something my Grandfather once told me years ago… He said… “Peter, If you can’t laugh at yourself, everyone else will”.
But not everything in life is humorous and some times its not our place to call attention to the things we see unless we are asked. Even then, people take time in a lot of situations to come around and see things for what they really are.
I would like to believe that I am a realist and I believe that no matter how hard we try, some signs are so serious that if we ignore them the results can be catastrophic. They dominate our lives and they are generally intertwined and can include medical, personal relationships, business and jobs and of course home-ownership.
Having said that, I realize that selling a house in Sacramento is serious business and while my signs on the side of the road claiming to be able to buy your house in Sacramento may appear humorous and somewhat out of place, I am dead serious. I also realize that selling your house is possibly your single largest investment that you have and needs to be treated with respect.
As a committed cash house buyer in Sacramento and it’s doubtful that you will find someone with more experience, drive and commitment than me. My commitment is such that I am personally involved from beginning to end in all of the transactions that my company, Westbrook REI is involved in and I get results.
Home ownership is at the center of today’s article and I want to talk about those specific signs that have an impact on and are directly related to all of the others signs in your life that can and usually lead to catastrophe if nothing is done.
Over 5500 We Buy Houses Sacramento Signs and Counting:
Over the course of the past 9 years I have hung over 5500 signs that say “We Buy Houses Sacramento”, “We Buy Ugly Houses Sacramento”, “If You Need to Sell Your House Fast Sacramento”, “Stop Foreclosure Sacramento” and “Avoid Foreclosure” in Sacramento, Stockton, Modesto, Lodi CA and Tulsa Ok. I even have a big “We Buy Houses in Stockton” in any Condition sign on the back of my truck. I drive it everywhere, I am proud of it and of course it is my sign.
We Buy Houses Sacramento that is my Sign. Unlike my Competitors, I want you to know that I am behind the sign. I have a vested interest in having you know who I am and how to contact me. In fact I have just one phone and it is the same phone that my Mother calls me on and I answer my own phone. Before, during and after… my phone is there for you. (209)481-7780.
Regardless of their purpose, my signs have generated a lot of humorous responses from everyday people curious about what I do. But, as a Cash Home Buyer, I am proud to have helped hundreds of families on both sides of the home ownership equation that have been brave enough to pick up the phone and call me to find out how I can help them.
I recognize that desperation is a strong motivator and in the early days of hanging my signs, I often wondered what would compel someone to pick up the phone to call me? After all, there was no credibility in the signs, there were no billion dollar logo’s and some of my most valued signs were hand written with a big fat “Sharpie”. I tried everything and I realized that the deck was stacked against me and the homeowner. How would we ever find each other as a mainstream alternative to selling a house? How was anyone going to take a “We Buy Houses Sacramento sign seriously?
Real Estate Agents at the time, told homeowners that what I did was illegal, that I was breaking the law and that they could get into trouble if they sold their house to me. I heard it all, even from agents themselves with 35 years of experience. Customers would call me and tell me that they didn’t have any money to fix up their homes, but couldn’t afford to keep them, but because the real estate agents told them that unless they fixed the house, their house was worthless… a tear down.
I have met a lot of real estate agents and I can count on one hand the number, that were qualified to evaluate a houses condition, and accurately determine the distressed value. Real estate agents love and sell pretty houses. If your house is distressed in any way, you need to get another opinion, preferably from an appraiser or cash home buyer.
I have heard it all. The conventional wisdom of real estate agents in a one size fits all world, with absolutely no concept of the homeowners specific problem or situation. No needs analysis, no valuable marketing plan specific to the house and no real solutions leading to a mutually beneficial ending… the sale of the house.
So why the shift in Perception? Why are Cash Home Buyers in Sacramento Being taken Seriously?
The Sacramento real estate market has changed dramatically over the past 10 years and what was predominantly a skeptical phone call just a few years ago, has changed to a serious and confident one by homeowners wanting and needing to sell their house fast in Sacramento , a local real estate investor with years of experience that pays cash for houses Sacramento in any condition.
I think that as a local real estate investor, what I do for homeowners has become accepted, mainstream and many homeowners realize that if they are going to be able to sell their home fast without a lot of wasted time and money, we are a very serious alternative. Maybe it’s that the general public has acknowledged that year after year 40% to 60% of all homes sold in the past 10 years have been by cash home buyers like me.Maybe its because technology has bridged the gap and made real estate cash home buyers more visible. Whatever the reason, selling your house fast without a real estate agent (and their commission) has become more mainstream.
The Conventional Wisdom from Real Estate Agents.
In Sacramento, you called a real estate agent first. It didn’t matter the condition of the house, because they were the experts and they would tell you what you needed to do to fix and then sell your house. The cost was not an issue for them because they were not spending their money and of course you needed to follow their specific recommendations. In many cases people put thousands of dollars into their homes hoping for a quick sale. The results were varied and some homes just sat for months and even years on end.
I want to be clear, I don’t begrudge anyone their sign and I certainly don’t begrudge anyone their payday or commission, but in my mind you should have earn it.
If you want to sell your house fast, and have talked to a Real Estate Agent and they have asked you to spend a lot of money and to do a lot of work just so they can place a sign in your yard with their phone number, ask yourself… “who does it benefit”? The answer is, very rarely you. Those signs are lead generators for the real estate agents, for people looking to buy, and in most cases not your house.
There is a difference between their signs and mine. My Sign is much more straight forward and credible, because my sign says it all. We buy Houses in Sacramento and I am the one that will buy your house. I will do so in its Current As-Is Condition, without inspections, without contingencies and I will pay you cash.
It’s all about how much cash you Put in Your Wallet!
Remember, at the end of the day, when you sell your house in Sacramento it’s all about how much money you put in your wallet, not how much money that you spent to sell it.
