Need to sell your house in Seattle fast? We can help.
Hi, I’m Gabe – owner of Great Northwestern Home Buyers. I buy houses across Seattle fast, in any condition, and pay cash.
I can get you an all cash offer on your Seattle home in as fast as 24 hours, from the time I receive your information (using the form above).
The process of selling your home can be daunting –
I know you may have a lot of questions or concerns, and you’re probably trying to figure out which direction you should take to sell. The information on this page will hopefully give you some information to help you out. If you have any questions, or just want to talk about your situation, you can reach out and contact me anytime.
I care about you as a person, not just your house.
When it comes to selling your house, I know you have a lot of options out there.
There are many companies and investors willing to buy your house, and you might be wondering what sets me apart. In short, I care about you as a person.
My goal is to create a win/win situation – an offer that works well for you and works well for me.
I understand the psychological tole having a financial/material burden on your life can have, and I’ll work to create a win/win solution as fast as possible for you so you can cash out of your property and start the next chapter in your life.
What kind of houses do you buy?
I buy houses across Seattle, in all kinds of situations.
The biggest thing I look for is that you’re motivated to sell. Basically, that you want out of your house, and don’t want to go through the headache of fixing, managing, or selling it. If you just need to get out from under the property, you’re probably a good fit for me.
What if your offer is to low, or not what I expected?
Trust me, I understand that you’ve probably got a value you’re looking to get out of your home. After you fill out the form, and I visit the property with you and make an offer – if you’re not happy with it you can just let me know.
When I make an offer, I can show you exactly what’s happening in your neighborhood in Seattle. That means that I’ll show you the comparables for similar houses, within a mile of your house, so you have a better idea of where I’m getting my pricing from.
For example, if all the houses within a mile of your location have sold recently for a certain amount, that’s a good starting point. Then I’ll show you all the work your house needs, and how that factors into the price. I’ll even show you the repair estimate that I’ve done .
Basically, if you have any concerns just let me know, and I’ll break down the pricing and show you exactly how I came up with the offer number I did. If you feel like it’s not a good fit, there’s absolutely no pressure to take it – but you’ll have a great understanding of where my pricing comes from.
What’s the difference between selling to you, and listing with a Seattle real estate agent? Can I just list my house with a real estate agent?
As I mentioned, listing with an agent is definitely a good option for some people. You just need to be aware of the pros and cons of each.
The advantage of selling your house to me is I don’t take any commission and will buy your house exactly as it is today. You don’t have to do any fix-up.
Remember, there’s potential you can earn more on your home by going through a traditional Seattle real estate agent. But that comes at a cost of waiting 3-12 months (depending on demand, your house, and the current market), and you’ll have to keep your property in show-condition, pay all property taxes and utilities during that time, and make any needed repairs before the sale.
If that’s something you’re able to do, then selling through a real estate agent may be a great fit for you. If it’s not, and the time savings, and just getting out from your house is more important to you, then I’m probably a good fit.
You might be better off selling to an investor (like me) if…
- You don’t have the money to keep paying property taxes and utilities while you wait for your house to sell
- You aren’t able to keep the house in “show ready” condition (available for walk-through’s etc.)
- You need to sell fast, in as fast as 7-30 days and don’t have the time to wait 3-12 months for the house to sell
- You’re willing to trade some of the value of your home, for the convenience of doing no-repairs, no maintenance, and just getting out from under the responsibility of upkeeping your home
You might be better off going through a real estate agent if…
- You have the time and money to wait for your house to sell (up to 12 months)
- You’re willing and able to pay all property taxes, utilities, etc.
- You can make all repairs needed on your home before it sells
- You’re able and willing to keep the house in show condition, ready to be walked through on appointment
- You want to make sure you get the full value of your home (your exact asking price) and are willing to wait for the right buyer
If selling your house to an investor is the best decision for you, I’ll buy it as is, do all the paperwork, and get you a fair offer (based off the current condition of the house) so you can just walk away from it.
Selling your house for cash, vs. letting it go to foreclosure.
If you’re thinking of letting your Seattle house go and letting the bank take it when they foreclose, I can understand how that can seem like the easy thing to do.
However, if you let the bank foreclose and take your house back, that’s going to negatively impact your credit score and severely reduce your choices in the future.
You may not realize this, but you will probably still end up owing the bank money, there may be tax consequences, and you won’t be able to buy another house for years. You also could end up having to declare bankruptcy down the road.
Foreclosures can also take a long time and, most likely, your house will end up sitting vacant for several months or even years, which will also have a negative impact on the neighborhood.
Stop the frustration of your unwanted property. Let us buy your house in Seattle now, regardless of its condition.
Avoiding foreclosure? Facing divorce? Moving? Upside down in your mortgage? Liens? It doesn’t matter whether you live in it, you’re renting it out, it’s vacant, or not even habitable. We help owners who have inherited an unwanted property, own a vacant house, are behind on payments, owe liens, downsized and can’t sell… even if the house needs repairs that you can’t pay for… and yes, even if the house is fire damaged or has bad rental tenants.
Basically, if you have a property and need to sell it… we’d like to make you a fair cash offer and close on it when you’re ready to sell.
We work differently at Northwest Home Buyers. When you contact us and submit the short property information form (below), we’ll give you a fair all-cash offer on your house within 24 hours… and the best part is: we can close whenever YOU choose to close – it’s entirely up to you. It doesn’t matter what condition the house is in, or even if there are tenants in there that you can’t get rid of… don’t worry about it. We’ll take care of it for you. And if you need the cash quickly, we can close in as little as 7 days because we buy houses with cash and don’t have to rely on traditional bank financing. (Go here to learn about our process →)
No matter what condition your house is in; no matter what situation or timeframe you’re facing…
Our goal is to help make your life easier and get you out from under the property that’s stressing you out… while still paying a fast, fair, and honest price for your house.
We help property owners just like you, in all kinds of situations. From divorce, foreclosure, the death of a family member, burdensome rental property, and all kinds of other situations. We buy houses in WA… including Auburn and surrounding areas and pay a fair cash price, fast. Sometimes, those who own property simply have lives that are too busy to take the time to do all of the things that typically need to be done to prepare a house to sell on the market… if that describes you, just let us know about the property you’d like to be rid of and sell your house fast for cash.
If you simply don’t want to put up with the hassle of owning that house any longer, and if you don’t want to put up with the hassle and time-consuming expense of selling your property the traditional way, let us know about the property you’d like to be rid of and sell your house fast for cash.
