What should you look for in Cash House Buyer Reviews?

Qualifications and Experience

A reputable cash house buyer will have knowledge of the market to understand what homes you are competing with. This helps to determine the true value of your home both in its current condition and after they complete any upgrades.

When the buyer is skilled at transforming homes, they provide solid advice about what you need to do to your home to compete. And they can harness the hidden value in the home that allows them to offer a higher price.


Make sure you ask for references. If the buyer truly does care about helping others, they will provide authentic examples of how they achieved this in the past. You must take cash house buyer reviews on Google or Facebook with a grain of salt. Those platforms do not fact-check the information that is shared.


When considering accepting a cash offer, ensure they have the funds available within the timeframe agreed on for the closing date. Don’t be afraid to ask where their money is coming from.

Many cash buyers rely on selling on assignment. Some will make an offer and hope to find a secondary buyer to sell to at a higher price to cover their purchase. But an investment firm that specializes in buying houses for cash should have funds available, so the deal closes on time.


It is imperative that the offer outlines every bit of information about the deal. The buyer should disclose all deductions, commissions or fees, penalties, etc. You should know the final number for the money you will keep.

Legal Team

Just because you choose to sell privately without a real estate agent doesn’t mean a lawyer isn’t necessary. To ensure the deal closes properly, and paperwork is completed correctly and on time, you should each have a lawyer review the contract and complete the deal upon closing.

What red flags should you be cautious about?

If you meet with a cash house buyer committing any of these practices, think twice.

These are unethical methods and give the others in our industry a bad name:

  • Using non-standard contracts full of confusing jargon
  • Suggesting not to use a lawyer
  • Pressuring you for deal
  • Making a verbal offer that differs from what’s presented on paper
  • Ignoring your needs
  • Asking for money
  • Delaying the process for using stall tactics

It’s important to us that our clients have a positive experience. Here are just a few examples of what others say about us:

You have done so much for our neighbourhood. The house was quite an eyesore before. We were thinking of selling our house but were afraid of what potential buyers would think of this house next door. Now I’m not sure we even want to move. I love our new neighbours.

London, ON

Thank you for making our move out of province possible. I wasn’t sure what we were going to do because we had so much stuff! Knowing you were going to take care of the leaky basement and rest of the things we couldn’t take with us was a relief. And having the extra time before the closing date to find our new home was very helpful.

Dorchester, ON

We had good intentions when we started the renovations but we kind of got over our heads not really understanding all the permits that were required. When we learned they condemned the house I wasn’t sure what we were going to do. We are so grateful for you taking it off our hands to finish what we started and giving us a fair price so its wasn’t a total loss.
