Sell Your House Fast

The housing market in San Diego can be a battlefield. It’s time consuming to sell your house with a real estate agent. Between home staging to impress buyers, conducting repairs they will likely demand, and waiting for a mortgage lender to approve the transactions, 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 we offer fair and competitive payment for your home.

Avoid Foreclosure

Foreclosures are events that no homeowner ever wants to go through. It is often a devastating happenstance of job loss, death of a family member, illness or divorce, and the crushing debt that ensues. But this can be avoided when you are willing to conduct a short sale of your home before it’s set on the auction block by your mortgage lender. For many it proves to be more advantageous than the dark mark of foreclosure on your credit history. Stop foreclosure with CalHomeCo. No cost, no fees, no obligations.

Avoid Repairs

Selling a home is hard enough without the worry and stress of needing to make repairs to attract buyers. Broken tiles, leaking faucets, and plumbing problems are all issues that will require your attention during a real estate agent sale. If you are seeking to avoid this, calling CalHomeCo is a far better strategy.  As a cash buyer, we conduct offers for fixer-uppers as well as homes in pristine condition. We buy ugly houses San Diego!

Get Fast Cash

Receiving your cash fast from the sale of your home is probably one of the biggest benefits for why so many people choose the cash buyer approach. Selling your home is often a migraine-inducing endeavor, because there are so many things that can go wrong while you are negotiating with your prospective buyer. But when you use a cash buyer like CalHomeCo, we have a reputation that is decades old for efficient processes that get your cash to you far faster than any real estate broker deal.

Inherited Property

A dearly departed relative who loved you very much has just left you a fixer-upper home. But it’s not your dream home, and you are happy about the gift but would rather sell it for the money it will bring. If you’re interested in selling your property for cash, we are the premier cash buyer in San Diego that offers 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 10. 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. No matter what the scenario, we buy houses for cash. We make fair and competitive offers that are quickly and efficiently processed all across the San Diego region. 

Inherited a home? Have a rental property that you’re tired of managing and maintaining? Facing foreclosure? Need to relocate quickly or just don’t want to deal with the headaches, fees, showings, staging, and negotiations involved in a traditional sale? Contact us today to sell your home fast in San Diego. Our offers are simple, fair, and fast. Call or complete the contact form above today; we will discuss your goals and ask a few questions about the property, and schedule a time to visit your home to evaluate and create our offer on the spot. 

Many cash buyers will offer a value over the phone or instantly online. While some are more reputable than others, beware these blind offers! Without seeing a property in person and evaluating needed repairs or updates, these offers are truly shots in the dark. Often a buyer will give one number on the phone but then ask for a large price reduction just before closing, at which point you may be out of other options and forced to accept. This is unfortunately a tactic some less reputable buyers will rely on. 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.

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 on our house buyer team, and have 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. We encourage our clients to research before choosing a professional to work with, and expect no different for ourselves. Look up our owner and founder, Henish Pulickal, and you will find that he is a reputable and trustworthy authority in the San Diego housing market with countless enthusiastic reviews for his services. Our lead acquisitions officer, Matt Gustavson, has been a part of CalHomeCo since 2016 and has already established himself as one of the most honest and professional real estate consultants in the county, buying homes and helping homeowners by avoiding foreclosure.

We buy houses San Diego, and are always looking for new homes to purchase. The consultation and quote are free, and there is no obligation to work with us if you don’t like our offer for any reason. What do you have to lose? Contact us today to learn how we can help!

CalHomeCo was there to guide me every step of the way. I couldn't have done it without them! The owner, Henish was attentive and made it a point to be involved in the entire process. Matt literally guided me on a daily basis through a very emotional time. Thank you all at CalHomeCo!"

“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”

John ‘Jack’ Barrett

“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 profit to the seller. Whatever the situation, we don’t close on a deal unless it 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 and if nothing else we are confident you will walk away from that meeting better informed than you were previously.
