Sell Your House Fast

The housing market in San Diego can be crazy. Because of this, it’s often time consuming and stressful to sell your house with a real estate agent. Between home staging and showings, completing requested repairs, and waiting for loan approvals and contingency removals, there is a lot of effort and cost associated with a traditional listing.

Often you may have very little time to wait, because you need to sell your home fast. Perhaps you’ve been offered the career move of a lifetime, and waiting for your house to sell is not an option. We buy houses for cash, and offer fair and competitive payment for your home.

Avoid Foreclosure

Foreclosures are events that no homeowner wants to go through. It is often a devastating event involving job loss, death of a family member, illness or divorce, and the crushing debt that ensues. Fortunately there are options available to stop foreclosure.

If you decide to sell, we can close quickly and painlessly or negotiate short sale terms as needed. If you are looking for options to keep your home before deciding to sell, we offer free professional consultations to understand what options may be available to you.

We Do The Repairs

Selling a home is hard enough without the worry and stress of buyer-requested repairs.

Broken tiles, leaking faucets, and plumbing problems are all issues that will require your attention during a traditional real estate agent sale.

If you are seeking to avoid this, calling CalHomeCo can save you a tremendous amount of time, stress, and money. As a cash home buyer we conduct offers for fixer-uppers as well as homes in pristine condition. We buy houses San Diego sellers want to move quickly and effortlessly!

Get Fast Cash

Receiving your cash fast from the sale of your home is one of the biggest benefits of working with a cash home buyer. Selling your home is often a migraine-inducing endeavor, because there are so many things that can go wrong while you are negotiating with a prospective buyer.

When you use a cash buyer like CalHomeCo however, we take on the burdens of all repairs, fees, and paperwork to make the process as streamlined and painless as possible. After buying dozens of homes in every corner of San Diego County, we have established efficient processes that get your cash to you far faster than any real estate broker deal.

Inherited Property

Losing a relative is never easy, especially if you had a close relationship. Unfortunately we have all been there or will be at some point. Combine the emotional stress with coordinating all of the things that going along with a passing especially if you are the manager of the estate, and it can quickly become overwhelming.

Often there may be a property left to inheritance. If you have a use for the home this can be a gift, but what if you don’t, or you would rather quickly convert the property to cash and move on? If you’re interested in selling the property for cash, we are the premier cash home buyer in San Diego offering a fast and hassle-free experience. Call us today and we can discuss our process for how we buy houses in San Diego.

Sell a Rental Property

Rental properties are a great investment, whether you have 1 or 5 or 100. Many people maintain them for years, until they want to liquidate the asset into cash. Perhaps a child is headed to college, or retirement to sunnier climes is in the works. Maybe there are just difficult tenants in place or extensive updates and repairs that the property needs.

No matter what the scenario, we will pay cash for these properties. We make fair and competitive offers that are quickly and efficiently processed all across the San Diego region. 

We Stick To Our Offers

Many cash buyers will make an offer over the phone or instantly online. While some are more reputable than others, be cautious of these blind offers! Without seeing a property in person and evaluating needed repairs or updates, these numbers are truly shots in the dark.

Often a buyer will give one offer on the phone, but then ask for a large price reduction just before closing. At this point, you may be out of other options and forced to accept. This is unfortunately a tactic some less reputable buyers use intentionally. While we can provide a rough estimate based on available property records and your description of the property, our offer won’t be presented until we’re confident we can stick to it and actually close at that number.

When CalHomeCo makes an offer, we have done our due diligence and are prepared to close at the price we promised. No reductions, no requests for repairs, no surprises. We have decades of experience as a cash home buyer, having bought and sold over $50,000,000 in real estate in the San Diego area. Our reputation as trusted professionals is well known throughout Southern California, and we are regularly contacted by other industry professionals when they need expert advice.

“So this will be an interesting review of CalHomeCo…My home ended up headed for foreclosure. Long story short, I was in a big, deep mess. I was contacted by Matt from CalHomeCo because he was interested in buying my home, which was being auctioned off in a month or so… When I told him I was trying to keep my home, he politely backed off and wished me well. 

Fast forward a month. My phone goes off, it’s Matt. He tells me my house is still on the auction list and it goes in two days! Mind you, I had paid back my lender the 45K I owed them! Matt found out the lender had not notified the attorney handling the sale!! At the very last moment, Matt talked me through what I needed to do to save my home!! He could have let the sale go through and bought the house at auction, but, instead, he worked to help me SAVE my home!! Now THAT is one good guy!!!!

I’m not even a customer of CalHomeCo and yet he helped me. Matt, I cannot thank you enough!!! You’re the best person I’ve ever come in contact with…. Incredible!! I’ll be remodeling my precious little house soon and YOU will have my business!!! Thank you again!!!Bottom line – if you want to work with someone honest, hardworking, and truly amazing, call Matt at CalHomeCo!!”

“Henish and I have worked together on projects for a few years. I found Henish to very professional, experienced and well respected in all areas of real estate from distressed properties, foreclosures, and conventional sales. 

He is a person who gets things done and is always pushing towards the final goal. He has such breadth and depth of knowledge I was willing to use him as an expert on real estate”

“I met Henish some 10 years ago, and I can tell you he is one of the most honest and straightforward individuals I have ever worked with. Do you know what this kind of individual attracts? Other people just like him! 

I have watched him build The California Home Company from the ground up and he has attracted some of the best agents I have had the pleasure to work with. It has been an honor to be one of The California Home Company’s preferred vendors, and should you decide to work with Henish and his team, I am quite certain you will have a very similar experience.”

“Matt Gustavson is a wonderful young man so willing to help people with foreclosure challenges. He recently saved my home from the auction block by calling me after working hours with advice what action to take to save my house, we beat the foreclosure auction sale by 3 minutes. Matt is a true friend with a heart that is in the right place. I do recommend him very highly.”

CalHomeCo is a trusted, reliable provider of creative property solutions throughout Southern California. We regularly meet with clients whose homes we don’t buy, because we find another solution that better fits their goals.

Maybe they didn’t really want to sell but were facing foreclosure, and we were able to help them save their home instead. Maybe selling a rental property wasn’t the best fit because they could reduce their stresses and continue receiving rental income by using a reputable property manager. Maybe after walking through the property we determined we could quickly turn it around as a traditional listing for a higher net profit to the seller.

Whatever the situation, we don’t close on a deal unless it’s a win for all parties involved. We buy houses San Diego owners make the decision to sell. Schedule a no-risk, no-obligation consultation with us today. If nothing else, we are confident you will walk away from that meeting better informed than you were previously.
