Frequently Asked Questions

When you’re selling a house, questions always arise — especially if you want to sell “as is” for cash. We buy houses for cash, and are happy to answer any questions you have. You’ll find answers to the most common questions that sellers ask below but, if you have a question that’s not listed, please don’t hesitate to call us at 312-779-0140 or send us a message here

Who typically sells properties to WeBuyChicagoHouses.com?

We work with people from all walks of life who want to sell a house quickly, easily or both to a trusted home buyer who can make a cash offer. We help homeowners facing personal or financial hardship, such as foreclosures, divorce, probate, relocation, and more. We also work with people who don’t want to deal with the hassle of working with a realtor, the uncertainty of what price they’ll get when it’s finally sold, not knowing how long it will take to sell, don’t want the large amounts of people it takes to sell a house traditionally walking through their home constantly, might prefer more discretion about the condition of their home without neighbors or friends touring through it or looking at it online, or just plain want the easiest and simplest done-for-you way to sell a house.

How do you determine the offer price on my property?

With a database of over 100 million properties and sales records, our algorithm will determine a cash offer for your home based on comparable sales in your neighborhood, less repair and remodeling costs, and a small profit for our company. As local cash home buyers, we are in the business of generating a profit, but we don't do that by coming to your house and throwing out a low ball offer to take advantage of homeowners. We let the data tell both the homeowner and our company what your home is worth in its current condition.

Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?

No. There are no fees or commissions when you sell your house to us. We’ll make you an all cash offer, and if it’s a fit, we’ll buy your house and even pay for the closing costs too! No hassle. No fees. We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house (if any) and sell it for a profit.

How are you different from a real estate agent?

We’re not acting as agents when we purchase in cash. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses for cash that meet our purchasing criteria and if it doesn’t meet our specific criteria, we will work with our investor network to partner for their specific criteria the property meets. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another home owner or keep it as a rental ourselves.

Are you listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?

We buy houses for cash that meet our purchasing criteria. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another home owner or keep it as a rental ourselves. With that being said, we do offer several options in buying your property and one of them is to list it on MLS with the home owners permission and we take on ALL the COST, which includes agent commissions, repairs, closing cost, and buyer concession (buyer credits). But, only 1 in 100 houses qualify for this program.

How does your house buying process work?

We follow a quick and simple process that makes things easy for sellers. First, request a free cash offer by completing our simple form. Then we’ll walk the property usually virtually via photos, videos, or boots on the ground with you to verify the condition of your house. Last, after you accept our offer, we’ll take care of the paper work to purchase your property, open escrow , and close on a date of your choosing after we have received clear title.

What is "Clear Title"?

A clear title, also known as a “clean title,” is a property title that is free from liens or additional issues that could jeopardize ownership, such as boundary disputes (encroachments) or easements. With a clear title, there’s no doubt who the owner of the property is, or who can claim legal ownership of the property. If there are any title issues, we will work with the title company to resolve those issues so that you can legally sell the property and that we can purchase it.

How long does it take to get my cash after selling my house?

Unlike other methods and buyers, WeBuyChicagoHouses.com's cash offer and simple process can get cash in your hands as fast as three weeks from when we enter into a contract to purchase.

Can I sell you my house if i am behind on payments?

Yes, as cash home buyers we can close in as little as three weeks, we could have your cash in hand even before you miss another payment and help you avoid foreclosure altogether.

Can I sell an inherited house?

Absolutely. If you’ve inherited a house, you’re entitled to do whatever you like with it, including selling it. Just fill out our form to get an instant cash offer, and we can help you sell the home and maybe even avoid probate.

What if I need the money from selling my house to move out?

No problem. Our Leaseback Program allows you to stay in your home, with cash in hand from the sale. It's simple: we determine the amount of time you need to move out, then you make a leaseback payment based on the number of days you need, and then you move out on your agreed upon date.
