Upon the death of her father-in-law in 2020, Sandy (her husband) inherited his Southern California home. Since she and her husband are both disabled and based in New Hampshire, she decided to research how they could sell the home without having to travel out to Southern California. However, when they were still determining how to eventually get to California, if necessary, the Covid-19 Pandemic hit so they had no other choice but to remain in New Hampshire.
To that end, they knew while they could not come out to California to deal with the sale, they had to do something quickly to keep the property safe. The goal was to get the house into safe hands as there were numerous break-ins into the home and her father-in-law’s car was even stolen.
Sandy also knew they would have to do some major repairs on the property before they could put it on the real estate market. They did not have the capital or the bandwidth to do anything like that. So, she decided to look for companies that buy houses for cash in the Southern California area. She started her search by weeding out the companies she “didn’t like” including those house buying companies and realtors that wanted repairs and renovations prior to buying or selling a house. That’s how she found John Medina Buys Houses, being a company that buys houses as-is.
“…We had no control over anything…we were afraid, and we called you guys and I’m so glad we did it was a miracle that I found you!”
After looking at our references, she couldn’t find anything wrong (and loved our triple A/5-star rating on BBB), called and talked to Peggy, in the John Medina Buys Houses front office. Peggy listened to Sandy’s situation and explained how the John Medina Buys Houses process worked.
Upon receiving more information via email, Sandy said she “wasn’t afraid” and “knew it was going to work out right” as John Medina Buys Houses also helped them navigate through everything including all the paperwork that goes along with selling a home that is held within a trust.
By the time the paperwork and other things that needed to be put in order were complete, we bought Sandy’s father-in-law’s house and closed within four days’ time. She was very happy with our offer.
