We Buy Houses: Our Process & Timeline

First and foremost, congratulations! You’re ready to sell your home! You’ve lived, loved, and made that building a home, but now it’s time to move on to greener pastures. So, what’s next? Rather, how will you sell your home? Will you sell with a realtor? Will you sell to an investor? Or, will you try selling your home yourself? These are all fantastic questions you need to decide because each of them will change the timeline of how long it will take to sell your house.

Most people just assume you should work with a real estate agent. Some choose to go the “For Sale by Owner” route. Yet almost all people overlook the last option: working with an investor. Many people have worked with realtors and understand (at least vaguely) their process. However, very few people know the process and timeline of an investor. Working with an investor can be one of the greatest financial steps you take regarding your property, and understanding their process can be highly beneficial to your future decision making. At LST Properties, we have created a hassle-free methodology that helps sellers to sell their house quickly.

The first step? Call us. Our number is 502-822-3633. During this call, we will explain the process and answer any questions you may have about our company. Also during this call, we jot down basic information about the property—how many bedroom and bathrooms? How long have you lived in the home? What repairs are needed? Do you have a mortgage on the property? This information will help us become familiar with the property and enable us to do preliminary research on the property to see if we will be a good fit for your selling needs. We will also set up an appointment to see the property. The whole call should be 10 minutes or less.

At the scheduled appointment, we will walk through your house with you. We want to put a name to a face and see your property in person. While we are at your house, we will get to know you and take a look around. That way, we can determine if repairs need to be made. (Don’t worry – we will take care of any repairs!) We might take a few pictures or a video to help us come up with an estimate of your house. During this appointment, we also answer any questions you may have about our company.

We’ll make you an offer next. Don’t worry, you can refuse. Sometimes, we need to do a little more research first, but either way, we will make you an offer on your home in its “as is” condition as soon as possible. If you are happy, then we can sign a purchase & sale contract right then and there!

Once we all agree on an offer, we can all agree on a closing date. Since we are paying cash, we can close in as little as 7 days, but if you need more time, no problem. We can close on your time. It’s as simple as that! The whole process could take as little as 7 days or as long as several months, depending on your situation and time frame. We want to help you get out of financial distress and walk away from the closing table satisfied and able to face your financial future with excitement and hope.
