There’s so much to love about Riverside in Southern California’s “Inland Empire.” There’s the thriving downtown, the high-performing schools, the robust job market, and, of course, the tantalizingly temperate weather. We are proud to live and work in and around Riverside and proud to help residents sell their homes the easy way.

You are probably visiting this website because you want to sell your house fast in Riverside, and we’re guessing you have a few questions.

How home expressbuyer works

How Does Express Homebuyers Work?

At Express Homebuyers, we do more than just help you sell your home to others. We actually buy your house for cash. We’ll give you a no-pressure offer. If you like it, you can take the cash offer and walk away (no matter what condition your home is in).

How Fast Can I Sell My House in Riverside?

In most cases, once you commit to us, you will have cash in hand in 7 to 10 days.

How Much Money Will I Get for My House?

If you want a ballpark estimate, enter your name, property address, and contact information on our contact form. We’ll get back to you with an estimate. If it interests you, we’ll come to your property, do a “soft inspection,” and give you an official cash offer.

When we buy houses in Riverside, we generally pay about 50 to 70% of the market value. While this may sound low, when you deduct all the fees the seller must pay with a traditional sale, you’ll likely come out better than you think. Many sellers find that their offer from Express Homebuyers isn’t too far off of what their net profits would be from a traditional sale. Besides that, the convenience of Express Homebuyers is pretty irresistible.

What Traditional Sale Costs Can I Avoid with Express Homebuyers?

Closing Costs

Closing costs often equal up to 9% of the home sale price. That means when you sell a home for $800,000, your closing costs could be as high as $72,000. A big chunk of these costs (usually 6%) cover realtor fees. Other seller fees include title insurance, transfer taxes, and escrow fees.

Remodel Costs

As most realtors will tell you, you need to get a home “show-worthy” if you want it to fetch a good offer. Do you have an unsightly or dysfunctional garage door or entry door? Old windows? Dilapidated siding? Or an outdated kitchen or master bath? Making upgrades can help your home sell faster and for more money, but you’ll need to spend money to make money (and coordinate the remodel work, which can be a massive headache).

Landscaping Costs

Same principle here as above. If prospects see dead grass, overgrown trees, or a massive infestation of weeds, they’ll see dollar signs and headaches ahead. This will be enough to keep many buyers from even considering your home.

Cleaning Costs

If you don’t have time to deep clean your own home, you’ll need to hire a crew to clean for the staging and photos, but it’s not a one-time deal. Your home will need to stay clean through open houses and showings. Then, there will be one final cleaning when you leave your home just right for the buyers. That’s a lot of cleaning, and house cleaning is rarely cheap here in Riverside.

Holding Costs

These are the costs you’ll have to pay while you wait for your home to sell. Houses in Riverside typically sit on the market for more than a month before they sell. After closing, it may be another few weeks or more before the buyers assume payments. That means you’re stuck paying the mortgage, utility bills, maintenance costs, etc. These holding costs can really add up, especially if the sale takes longer than expected.

Is Express Homebuyers Right for Me?

We’re the first to say that our services may not be right for everyone, but they’re the perfect solution for many people. You might be a good candidate for Express Homebuyers if:

You’re Getting Rid of a Rental House

California can be a tough place to rent out your home because the state is so tenant-friendly. It can be very hard to evict a tenant, no matter how poorly they treat your property and whether or not they are paying rent regularly. You’ll have to go through a court process, and even if you get permission to evict, the process can take 30-45 days (or even longer).

If you’re done with the headaches of being a landlord and want an easy way out, Express Homebuyers can help you divest yourself of your rental home quickly.

You Are Divorcing

Divorces can be messy, and selling a home can complicate things even more. If you’ve googled “sell my house fast in Riverside, CA” in search of a cash buyer, Express Homebuyers can end your search.

Selling your home in advance of the divorce will free you up to look for separate living arrangements that fit your respective budgets. It can also simply the divorce agreement because you can divide the proceeds from the home rather than trying to agree on who will keep the property.

Selling your home before the divorce can also allow you to minimize capital gains taxes. When you sell as a married couple, you get a $500,000 exclusion. When you file individually, the exclusion drops to $250,000.

Your Spouse Has Died

If your spouse passes away, your timeline for selling your home matters. If you sell within two years of your spouse’s death, you can get the $500,000 exclusion. If you sell after the two year mark, you’ll only get the $250,000 exclusion.

Amidst the stress and heartache of losing a spouse, you may choose to sell your home with Express Homebuyers to streamline the process. There’s something very freeing about being able to walk away from your home, whatever state it is in, rather than trying to negotiate the trappings of a traditional sale.

You Need to Sell an Inherited Home

An inherited home can be a blessing and a curse. Every home comes with taxes and maintenance fees. If you don’t have the bandwidth for that right now, it may be best to sell the house quickly rather than trying to keep up a second home.

You’re Tired of Home Ownership

Aw, home ownership. It’s the American dream, right? But even dreams can dim when you’re spending every Saturday trying to tame an unruly yard or spending thousands of dollars fixing water heaters, plumbing leaks, appliances, and electrical problems.

If you feel like something is breaking every time you turn around, your new dream may be to simply call a landlord. We can give you cash for your home that you can invest in your new rental home, free of maintenance challenges that eat up your time and money.

You No Longer Make as Much Money

Has your income dipped due to changing a job, losing a job, retiring, etc.? If so, you don’t want to become a slave to an uncomfortably high house payment for one month longer than you have to.

You’re Facing Bankruptcy

If you sell your home before filing for bankruptcy, you may be able to shield the proceeds. Talk to an attorney about California’s bankruptcy laws and how they affect you.

You’re Facing Foreclosure

It can be very hard to bounce back from a foreclosure because it wrecks your credit score. A poor credit score can affect your job prospects and your ability to qualify to rent or own another home. If you can show that Express Homebuyers has made a cash offer on your home, you may be able to avoid foreclosure and preserve your credit.

These are several of the reasons people Google “sell my house fast in Riverside, CA.” And when they want to sell for cash to a company with integrity, Express Homebuyers is there.

Why Should I Use Express Homebuyers Over the Competitors?

Wherever there is a vibrant housing market, there will be cash homebuyers, and Riverside is no exception. When you search for “sell my house fast in Riverside, CA,” you’ll likely get multiple offers. We are confident that we’re the best option out there, and here’s why:

We Buy Your Home As-Is

If you wanted to renovate and deep clean your home, you would have sold the traditional way. We’ll take your home exactly as it is. Simply pack up your stuff (or leave what you don’t want) and walk away. We’ll take care of the rest.

We Don’t Charge Fees

No fees. No commissions. We have had many clients come to us who have been burned by cash home buyers that nickel and dime them to death. It’s simple: We pay you. You don’t pay us.

You’ll Get Fast Cash

Some cash homebuyers delay sales while they wait for more cash to come in. This can be extremely frustrating for sellers who are on a tight timetable. We’ve been around since 2003 and have deep cash reserves. That means we’ll get you your cash when you want it, usually in as little as a week.

Our Ratings Speak for Us

We are accredited with the Better Business Bureau and have many 5-star reviews from thrilled customers to vouch for us.

It’s Risk-free

Our contract is simple and straightforward. There’s no sneaky fine print. If you don’t decide to sign with us, no problem. But if you do, you’ll pay nothing and get quick cash. There’s no risk for you, just the benefit of a good offer and a quick sale.

We Know Riverside

Some cash home buyers are big, national outfits who don’t know the first thing about your area. But we live and work in and around Riverside, so we’re very familiar with the neighborhoods and the local housing market. That enables us to make an offer that reflects the true value of your home and provide attentive customer service. We’re your neighbors, and we treat you that way.

Our Name = Trust

We started in the Washington, D.C. area and quickly became known as the most trusted cash homebuyer in the area. After opening our offices in Southern California, we quickly gained the same reputation on the West Coast.

Our founders (Jud Allen and Brad Chandler) are a couple of real estate fanatics who also happen to be among the most grounded family men you could meet. They love the things you love: working in the yard, coaching their kids’ basketball teams, and spending time in the great outdoors with their families. Their creed is simple: “Treat our clients the way we treat our families.” This commitment influences all we do.

Will Trying to Sell my House Fast in Riverside, CA Set Me Up for a Scam?

Not if you do your homework. The cash homebuyer industry has its share of shady characters, but there are also reputable ones. Here’s how you can sniff out a scammer:

legit express home selling

No Websites or Reviews

A good cash homebuyer should have a robust web presence. Check out their website and online reviews. An online presence sets up an important layer of accountability. If you can’t find a homebuyer online, consider it a red flag.

An Offer Sounds Too Good to Be True

It is very unlikely that a cash homebuying service will offer you the same amount that you would get for a traditional sale. When you sell for fast cash, your buyer is assuming quite a bit of responsibility. They are accepting your house as-is. They are now on the hook to find a tenant or a new seller. They must have cash at the ready so that you can walk away with your profits in hand.

As a result, a cash homebuying service will likely pay you less (usually 50% to 70% of the value). If an offer seems overly generous, there’s likely a catch lurking in the background.

They Nickel and Dime You

We’ve never understood why cash homebuyers charge their clients fees. They should be paying you, not charging you. Avoid companies that want to charge you for repairs, educational courses, or commissions hidden in the fine print of the contract.

They Go Back on the Original Contract

This is a very common scenario. A homebuying service will find a seller in distress, lock them into a contract, then start changing the terms. They’ll say, “Did you see the fine print here?” Or, “This clause actually means….”

By this point, the seller is hesitant to back out because they’re in a hurry to sell—and that’s exactly where the shady homebuyer wants them. The scammer is then free to adjust the terms and payout amount to their liking, and the seller loses big time.

They Don’t Do a Home Visit

No matter what a company says they can see through an online visit, they should get eyes on your property to make a final offer. Buying sight-unseen is a pretty reckless practice. Besides, as a seller, you’ll get a better feel for the company when you can actually meet their people face to face. Be wary of any company that wants to buy your home without seeing the property in person.

They Won’t Leave You Alone

You have the right to accept or refuse any homebuying service right up until the time that you sign the contract. If a company is using high-pressure tactics, step away.

We’ve seen companies hone in on homeowners who need to sell quickly, then start hounding them until they finally break down and sign on the dotted line. You don’t need that kind of pressure. There are plenty of good companies that will give you space to make your own decision.
