FAQ on Selling Your Houston Home for Cash
If I enter my information, am I obligated to sell?
You are never under any obligation to sell your house to Terra Home Solutions. When you reach out to us with your information and we perform a walkthrough of your house, we give you a no-obligation cash offer.
Whether you choose to accept or decline our offer is completely up to you. There are no repercussions should you decide you’re not ready to sell.
What kinds of fees will I have to pay when selling my home?
When you sell your home to Terra Home Solutions, there are no fees involved. You won’t pay commissions, title fees, or closing costs. When we give you an offer for your home, the number you see on the offer reflects the amount of cash you’ll get if you decide to sell us your house.
How is the offering price for my house determined?
We determine our offering price for your house based on several factors. When we perform our property walkthrough, we’ll consider the condition of your house, the value of similar homes in the neighborhood, the projected cost of any necessary repairs, the current real estate market in your area, and several other factors.
Keep in mind that if your house requires repairs or renovations, the cost of that work will reduce the offer we’re able to extend. Since we take care of existing issues after the sale, we must take into account the amount we’ll need to invest to improve the property.
What do you do with the home after you purchase it?
After we purchase your house and give you your cash, there are several things we might do with the property. Typically, we’ll fix up the house if it needs work and then sell it to another buyer or rent it out to a family in the area. Ultimately, we’re looking to make a profit off the property.
Can I sell my home if I am behind on the mortgage?
Yes, you can sell your home to our team even if you’re behind on your mortgage. In fact, we see this situation frequently. For many homeowners, the best way to get out from underneath an overwhelming mortgage is to sell the house. If you’re in a tough spot, we’re here to help.
How long does it take to sell my home?
With Terra Home Solutions, you can sell your house in a matter of days. However, the amount of time it takes to sell your home depends largely on your needs and circumstances.
We understand that certain circumstances are out of your control, so if you need to close extremely quickly, we’ll do our best to accommodate you. On the other hand, if you need additional time to plan your move or take care of odds and ends, we’ll do our best to work with you on a timeline that meets your needs.
Do I have to move out right after selling my house?
When we buy your house, you do not need to move out immediately. Moving can be a stressful process, and we understand that many homeowners need time to plan their relocation and tie up loose ends. If you agree to sell, we’ll work with you to determine a move-out date that works for your schedule. In most cases, we can be flexible.
Can I sell my house if I live out of state?
Absolutely. If you own a house in the Houston area but live in another state and cannot meet with our team in person, we can conduct your sale remotely. When you contact us with information about the house you need to sell, let us know your circumstances, and we’ll help you coordinate whatever is necessary to get your house sold.
What types of houses do you buy?
We buy all types of houses, regardless of their condition. Whether you have a brand-new home or a house that needs a ton of work, we’re interested in buying it. Even if your house is condemned, we can make you a fair cash offer for it. If your property is zoned as a residential dwelling, we can buy it.
