“How much can I get for my house” is the burning question every seller asks. However, it’s not always about the price. When it comes to homeowners dealing with probate houses, foreclosure, delinquent taxes, and other issues, a quick sale to ease their troubles is also essential. 

If you have a lovely home, you may stand a chance on the open market and get the actual retail value for your property. The truth is, we can’t give you the retail value for your house. But you’d get to enjoy other benefits!

Get an offer in less than 8 minutes and a close in 7 days. 

Let’s be frank. When you decide to sell your home, incurring utility costs is the last thing you would want to do. Unfortunately, it is a burden you must bear when dealing with a realtor. But selling to us guarantees an instant cash offer and speedy closing.

Simply put, skip the utility charges by selling in record time.

    *Financial contingency: Buyers can halt a sale procedure if they can’t secure enough funding to make the purchase. The financial contingency often kicks in when the house doesn’t appraise at the same price as the cash offer.

    *Inspection Contingency: If your home is in terrible condition, the buyer can stop the sale. 

    Cash For House Illinois doesn’t rely on bank loans for funding. Hence, you can’t experience such an abrupt impedance while selling your house to us.
