All these pro- real estate agents and avoid fast buying companies people are real estate agents, they want you to use them or other real estate agent services. But the facts are, one is not better than the other, they just have different customers. Most of these sell your home fast companies have a ton of knowledge and know just as much as real estate agents, even some are licensed agents. Look into both and ask questions before taking random peoples advice.
call one of those companies out and they will give you an all cash offer and close on the day of your choice. Most of the time I close the seller out with cash in hand in three business days.
If you want to play the real estate game, what agent will promise you the most at the cheapest commission. Have broker open houses, open houses, have people running through the house day and night getting offers negotiating back and forth then dealing with all the buyer inspections, then the appraiser who puts a number on the property depending how the latte was earlier in the day.
You will wait from 30 days to 6 months to get your cash you will receive about 12% more after it's all said and done. Guarantee you will have earned every penny.
These companies seem to come and go. If you need to sale your home in he shortest amount of time and for the max price. I urge you to list it with a real estate sales professional.
These help u sale type companies still charge you a fee, and do not offer you the protection and service you will get from a realtor.
I wish you the very best in getting your home sold!

I hope that we saved you some time and heartache. Give any one of us a call, and I am sure that you will be in better hands.
If you have any doubts about a company's legitimacy, their promises are likely too good to be true. Many homeowners who try to avoid using a Realtor sadly find themselves in the 95% statistic of being unsuccessful. You want to have a better than 5% chance of selling your home, right?
Sellers have the goal of getting the most money that they can for their property in the quickest amount of time. The best way to achieve this goal, in my opinion, is by using a Realtor you can trust who will come up with an intelligent pricing strategy, BUT equally important is the way the property shows in the MLS photos. More than 90% of buyers first see their homes online. You and your agent should have no problem selling quickly IF it is priced right and looks great.
I believe in giving my sellers something extra to help them achieve their goals, so I offer free home staging to all of my sellers. I have my own staging and design company. My sellers' properties show like model homes and routinely sell in the first few days on the market! I am happy to forward you photos and testimonials if you feel this service may benefit you. Call or text me anytime at 562.673.9690 if you want to know more. I wish you GREAT luck in selling, and I would love the opportunity to earn your trust and business. -Angelica
Selling a home is a legal binding transaction.
Your home is a major investment. You should trust selling it to a highly skilled professional who follows the ethics and bylaws of the CA Department of Real Estate, in addition to laws set forth by their local associations, and professional organizations.
Realtors who are members of the California Association of Realtors have direct access to legal experts, and have the tools to navigate even the most complex real estate transaction.
You may not even actually net more money working with these Help You Sale type companies. They lack the resources to market your home for maximum exposure.
Best of Luck to You!

Very good question.
There's a lot of buyers of homes
right now offering cash to sellers
that want a fast deal but below market
I think they're in this category.
If you want the best deal though, I
suggest you interview 3 or 4 local agents
It comes down to...What's your goal? I quick sale or netting the most money for your home? Almost all sales today are fast anyway, but working with the right agent can make a ton of difference in what your home ultimately sells for.
Best of luck
In FACT, I have a Saved search in the MLS for when homes that are listed like this are Cancelled, so I can then go & try to help the owner.
There are different angles that these companies take to market your home to buyers, they get away with it under "auction" rules, even though the owner is not experiencing any sort of financial distress, I don't really want to go into it all here on Trulia, as with one of the other answers, I don't want to bash them online.
Please shoot me an email directly, I can give you the scoop. I don't look back on this same Trulia posting for answers after mine.

Why would you use a company that you do not know. What advantages are they claiming?
I would recommend finding a good local agent that will work for you.
