We Buy Houses For Cash in Washington, D.C.

What makes our process better than the traditional way of selling a house? Getting us to buy your house comes with several major advantages.

No Repairs

If the person who wants to buy your house needs a mortgage, the bank will only approve the loan if your house is in good repair. We offer cash deals, so you can skip all the inconveniences of getting approved for financing. Even major problems like a leaky roof or foundational issue don’t need to be repaired before you sell.

No Agents

Traditional sales require you to work with agents who charge you money and often make the process more complex. We buy homes without agents, so you get to deal directly with your buyer. This saves you money and reduces hassle.

No Fees

Traditional real estate transactions involve several middlemen and unnecessary fees. Often, you have to pay for everything from taking photos for a real estate listing to getting the house appraised. We cut all of these fees out. Furthermore, you don’t have to pay tens of thousands of dollars in agent commission fees. Reducing these expenses means a bigger profit for you.

Is a Cash Home Buying Service Right for You?

Sometimes, selling a home the traditional way makes sense, but sometimes it really doesn’t. In our decades of experience, we’ve seen many people who needed to sell their homes quickly and were stuck and frustrated in the traditional pathway. We started Express Homebuyers to help those people and provide another option to the stressful and time-consuming process of selling a home the traditional way.

Buying houses in cash
Here are some reasons that you might want to reach out to our cash home buyers in Washington DC:

  • You need to avoid foreclosure
  • You are declaring bankruptcy
  • You have inherited a home, and you don’t want to keep it
  • You own a rental home that you don’t plan to keep any longer
  • You need to move quickly
  • Your home needs significant work, and you don’t want to worry about repairs
  • You are divorcing
  • Your spouse has passed away, and you want to downsize
  • You are out of work and need money to get through a tight financial time
  • You want to move without all the hassle and red tape of a traditional sale


Home Selling Hassles You Can Avoid When You Use a Cash Home Buying Service in Washington DC

If you have the time and cash to go the traditional route of listing your home with an agent, reviewing offers, making repairs, and closing–that’s great! We are not trying to dissuade you. But many people don’t know that they have other options. We want to make sure that you have the information to make the right decision for your circumstances.

Listing a home costs money and time. On average, the cost of selling a house is about 10% of the selling price. With the average Washington DC home costing $600,000, that’s a significant chunk of change. Some of that can’t be avoided–taxes and the cost of relocating somewhere else, for example. However, if you use our Washington DC cash home buying service, you can skip these stressful and costly aspects of selling a home:

Preparing Your Home for Listing

To get top dollar out of your home in a traditional sale, it needs to show well, and that means there are probably at least some minor repairs, if not major renovations to undertake. How do you know which repairs and upgrades will get you the most return on your investment?

Is it worth re-doing your 1990s bathroom? Does it make sense to repaint the bedrooms? Are those cracks in the driveway going to be a problem? Does the landscaping need work to improve your curb appeal? Do you have the skills and time to do the work yourself, or do you need to hire a professional? The costs and time can add up quickly.

Hiring a Realtor

To sell your home the traditional way, you’ll need to find a realtor. You want someone who is familiar with the area and the local real estate market but is not so busy and in demand that your home falls to the bottom of their priority list. It is a competitive market–will they be proactive and innovative in getting your home seen? Will they do a good job of negotiating on your behalf to get you the best deal? Don’t forget that you have to pay for their services. Real estate commissions are usually around 6% of the selling price.

Staging Your Home

You can’t change the size or location of your home, so the most significant thing you can do to help it sell is to make sure it’s making a good first impression. You are about to have people looking at pictures online, walking through your home, and judging it with a critical eye.

In today’s real estate market, many potential buyers will view your home virtually before seeing it in person. That means that having good photos (or even a virtual walk-through) can be the difference in making a sale. For this reason, many sellers will invest in professional photos and videos when they list their homes.

Upon arriving at your home, the first thing that potential buyers see is the outside. Your curb appeal needs to be on point. That means no broken shutters or overgrown lawns. Your landscaping needs to be updated and well-maintained.

As you move to the interior of your home, your realtor might suggest that you move out your personal furniture (especially if it is dated) so they can replace it with something more modern from their collection. You may need to rent a storage unit while you sell your home to keep your furniture and extra stuff out of the way. You’ll probably want to touch up or repaint some of your rooms so they look their best.

Now you’ve cleaned out your stuff and hauled much of it to the thrift store and storage unit. You’ve scrubbed your kitchen and bathrooms until they shine. You’ve mowed the lawns, trimmed the hedges, repainted rooms, dusted blinds, scrubbed baseboards, patched nail holes, and hidden all the evidence that you live in the house. All you have to do is keep it looking perfect for three to four weeks so you are ready to host showings at a moment’s notice.

Waiting (and Waiting Some More)

Statistics in the Washington DC area show that homes take an average of 79 days to sell– that’s 44 days on the market, and the usual 35 days to close. So be prepared to wait for the right buyer to come along.


Once you get an offer (or multiple offers), there is still the stressful process of negotiating. You can choose to accept the first offer or make a counteroffer. This can go back and forth for a while, and sometimes a buyer can back out mid mid-negotiation. The negotiations are less straightforward than just a price. The selling price, repairs, closing costs, down payments, closing timeline, financing, and other contingencies (such as the sale being contingent on the buyers selling their own home) are all on the table. There are a lot of options to weigh and significant pressure to choose the right offer.

Having Your Home Inspected (and Addressing Issues)

Once you’ve accepted an offer, the buyer has the right to order a home inspection before closing the sale to ensure that there are no hidden issues in the home. Things an inspector is looking for include major and minor cracks, leaks, issues with the HVAC or plumbing, termite damage, wear to the roof, structural integrity, and electrical issues. If the inspector finds anything concerning, you will most likely be responsible for making repairs before the sale goes through.

Paying Closing Costs

At the end of a waiting period, it’s finally time to sign the closing papers (and pay the associated closing costs.) Sellers are usually responsible for a significant portion of the closing costs, including real estate agent commissions, transfer taxes, and recording fees.

When you come to the closing, you will want to make sure that you bring the following documents:

  • Original contract from when you bought the property
  • The home appraisal
  • A property survey
  • Your mortgage paperwork
  • Proof of homeowners insurance
  • Tax records
  • A certificate of occupancy
  • The home inspection report

Cleaning Out

Congratulations! You’ve finally done it and closed the sale! Unfortunately, your work isn’t quite done yet. You still have to move out of your old house and ensure it’s in tip-top shape for the new buyers.

After you’ve packed all your boxes and loaded the truck, you’ll need to go through your now-empty home to vacuum carpets, scrub bathrooms, clean appliances, and empty all the trash. It’s a daunting task before you can finally pull away.

Prepare your home for listing

A Better Way

If home renovations are your thing, and you love the challenge of negotiating a sale, then a traditional real estate sale might be the best route for you. But if that process seems like more time, money, and energy than you want to invest in, we can offer another way.

At Express Homebuyers, we are not a real estate agent who sells your house for you. Instead, we are a company that buys houses in Washington DC. We buy your house from you directly and pay you in cash. You can skip all the hassle of finding an agent, renovating, listing, and staging your house, negotiating prices, and paying closing costs. We buy your home as-is and usually within 7 days. Quick, easy, hassle-free.

Do you have repairs you never made? Trash you don’t want to haul away? Landscaping that needs work? Pet stains on your carpet? Don’t worry about it. You can walk away and let us handle it all.

We will do a brief “soft inspection” to identify any major issues with the house, such as a leaking roof or cracked foundation, and then get back to you with a cash offer. Getting an offer is absolutely free, and if you choose to accept, you can walk away, cash in hand. No endless showings, back-and-forth negotiations, DIY repairs, and days spent cleaning.

Will You Lose Money When You Sell with Express Homebuyers?

At first glance, your offer with Express Homebuyers might seem like less than you can get with a traditional sale. However, you need to take into account a host of costs you’re saving by selling your home right away for cash.

  • Realtor commission fees. You’ll likely pay 6% of the selling price in commission for the buyer and seller agents. On a $500,000 home, that’s $30,000.
  • Other closing costs. These can average up to 9%, or an additional $45,000 on that same $500,000 home.
  • Landscaping renovations. Buying plants, sprucing up the lawn, and trimming the trees can all cost money. If you want to sell your home quickly, you’ll need curb appeal, but curb appeal isn’t cheap.
  • Home repairs. Depending on your home and the amount of work that needs to be done, this cost can vary. But in general, home repairs can really add up, especially if your home needs significant renovations.
  • Professional photos. If you want to command top dollar, you will probably need to invest in professional quality photos to go on listing sites.
  • Furniture or decor for staging. Many sellers invest in some updated decor or furniture to help their home show better.
  • Cleaning costs. You can spend the time to clean your home prior to showing it and then prior to transferring it to the seller, or you can save time and effort and have it professionally cleaned.
  • Fixing issues found in the inspection. If your inspection reveals any issues in your home, you will either need to pay to get them fixed or reduce the selling price of your home to compensate for the problems.
  • Paying a mortgage while your home is on the market. If you are living in your home this might not be a problem, but if you are floating two mortgages, or trying to sell a rental, this might be significant.
Better way of selling
Aside from the financial considerations, your time is worth something, too. Selling a home the traditional way is stressful and incredibly time-consuming. If you consider the financial add-ons and the value of your time and sanity, you’ll find that an offer from Express Homebuyers is very competitive.
