Tips For Finding a Reputable House Buyer  in Cleveland Ohio

Make sure you don’t call the first number you see on a “bandit sign” you see on the side of the road.

Side note, bandit signs are the “We Buy Houses” signs you see plastered all over the city of Cleveland. Its why cash house buyers have become known as “we buy houses” companies.

If you want to know all about these bandit signs and whether they are legitimate read our article on Signs Everywhere: We Buy Houses Legitimate or Not?

One thing that was discussed in that article is how to research a cash buying (we buy homes) company to see if they are legit. I would like to share those again here.

“At a very minimum when researching a company behind a We Buy Houses bandit sign look for ones that:

  • Are accredited by the Better Business Bureau, or some other reputable organization
  • Have a website that provides full details on the business, such as who the owners are and what the address of the business is
  • Have a well thought out and informative website (not one that is thrown together in 20 minutes)
  • Have testimonials and reviews so you can read about other people’s experiences”

Selling your house, rental or building is a big deal. You should be in good hands.

Are You Looking for a Local We Buy Houses Company?

Do note that many of the established we buy houses companies buying houses in Cleveland are not local. They are, for the large part national or semi-national companies based in other states but buying in greater Cleveland because it is an attractive investor market.

A company’s website domain address and website might say Cleveland, but that doesn’t mean much. It’s easy to purchase a website address and include Cleveland in it.

If you are looking for a truly local we buy houses company then you should look on the contact us page or in the footer of each website. There you will find their actual location.

Since the company Carrot.com launched their amazingly effective platform for investment websites it is extremely easy for individuals to launch a We Buy Houses website with pages for a massive number of cities throughout the country.

This has made it very easy for companies in other states to start marketing their “we buy houses” services to cities outside of their state. Cleveland is one that has become extremely popular with investors.

If you look at enough sites you will notice a majority of the websites look the same and state the Carrot name somewhere. You will also notice that the language and marketing look very familiar from one website to the next, almost cookie cutter.
