If you've got the equity in your home and you're comfortable with those numbers, then that might be the way to go. However, you usually can get more selling conventionally. In the scenario above, maybe the home's on the market for $185,000. You could drop the price down to $160,000, likely sell quickly, and come out ahead of where you'd be with a "cash for homes" company.
I'd be tempted to reexamine my pricing and the home's appearance first and see whether correcting either or both of those would help.
Bite the bullet and lower the price substantially. The home will sell, and you will have this monkey off your back.
