We have been self-quarantined since before it was recommended in Texas. When going out we use masks, gloves, and shoe covers. We practice social distancing protocols even while viewing properties. We wipe down hard surfaces that we may touch during our visits. If you need something specific, we would be happy to accommodate your needs.
First, we determine the top market value of your property if it were repaired to the best possible condition.
Market value is the most probable price that a property should bring in a competitive and open market, where the buyer and seller are both motivated and a reasonable time is allowed for exposure in the open market.
Market value is determined by comparing your property to similar houses in the same area that have sold within recent months. It is not based on the current list price of similar houses—only the sold values. We take into consideration the condition of the house, the cost of necessary repairs and any encumbrances or obstacles to clear title.
You do not have to fix a thing when you sell your house fast to DFW Professional Home Buyers. Your property is purchased in “as-is” condition.
Once closed you can collect the funds in one of two ways:
- By means of a certified bank check
- Direct wire into your bank account
The Title company will issue funds directly to you at closing. The Title company will also payoff off any mortgages, taxes owed, home owners association fees and any other items that are due.
Yes! DFW Professional Home Buyers and the title company work together to order payoffs for any and all debt owed and those final payoffs are made from your total proceeds at closing.
Sometimes sellers ask: “should I pay off my mortgage/ pay off my taxes before we close?” and our advice is to wait and allow the title company to handle all of the final settlement costs. The title company needs the releases of lien and proof of payment for all debt in order to insure the title. It’s often faster to let the escrow company handle these payoffs – this way the title company knows the debts have been paid and we don’t have to wait for the releases to come in before closing.
The whole process takes between 10 to 30 days from contract to closing, depending on the status of title and the terms of the offer. DFW Professional Home Buyers can accommodate your specific needs – just let our representative know how we can best serve you.
Funds are dispersed at closing. DFW Professional Home Buyers must obtain clear title from the title company and then we schedule closing. In some cases we are able to offer an advance, depending on the status of title and your specific circumstances.
We have several resources that can clean out, pack and even move your belongings! We do ask that you work with us to make arrangements for these services at the beginning of the process, that way we can make preparations accordingly. Depending on the service a charge may apply at the lowest possible cost.
Once we can set a date for closing you will know the exact date to schedule your move. Closing is when the final papers are signed, you receive your money, and when ownership transfers out of your hands. By this time, the house should be empty and vacant unless we make other arrangements based on your specific needs. We begin the process of repairs and maintenance on the property immediately after closing and anything left behind will be donated to charity or disposed of.
The closing date is flexible most of the time. If we sign a contract and you need several months to prepare for your move we are willing to work with you. There is NO PRESSURE from us to close by any particular date and we will accommodate your needs to the best of our ability. Also, we may be able to lease the property back to you after closing for a short time.
You tell us about your property and we round up all of the information and tips on selling a home fast for you.

Once we’ve walked through the property, we will have a cash offer for you immediately.
