You’ve no doubt seen the obnoxious billboards as you drive down the highway – “We Buy Ugly Houses”, complete with a slightly odd looking little bearded caveman. These signs can be seen everywhere, even on power poles at intersections, and if you need cash in a hurry you may even have been tempted to call the number on the sign. But who are these companies?
One of the major players in these aggressive investing campaigns is HomeVestors. While the signs are uniform, giving the impression of a cohesive entity, HomeVestors is actually a franchise operation. What does this mean for you? Just as in any industry, there are good professionals, and not-so-good ones. Because franchises are operated by separate individuals, you never really know what you’re going to be getting when you get involved with one of these companies.
When you contact JenniferBuysHouses.com, you know you will be talking to me directly, or else a trusted member of my team. There’s no mystery, because we are a smaller, private entity that operates on a principle of high standards and personal communication. We don’t use roadside signs, because our reputation speaks for itself.
If you opt to call the number on the yellow sign, you may very well get a great HomeVestors franchisee. However, always do your homework – check out the company’s references and Better Business Bureau rating, and see what kind of vibe you get talking to the person yourself. Or call me, and I’ll do everything I can to help you sell your home fast.
