Some of the most prominent iBuyer companies in the home buying field have announced that they are not purchasing homes during the COVID19 crisis. On March 18, Redfin announced that its home buying program, Redfin Now, will temporarily pause making offers on homes. Last week, Zillow Offers announced the same. The four main iBuyers in the market – including Open Door and Offerpad – have now all halted their services.

The restrictions on movement and stay-at-home orders that have been put in place by state and local governments to fight the spread of Coronavirus has put a damper on real estate activities. In most places, sellers are not able to perform the necessary activities to prepare their house for sale on the market, such as staging and taking photos. But for some, especially those with a loss of income, selling their house could be one way to make some quick cash.

In the Greater Seattle area, where these companies are not currently in operation, you can still request an all-cash offer on your property.

We’ve Adapted Our Process

At Beachworks, we purchase single-family homes in the Greater Seattle Area as-is with an all-cash offer. If you need to sell your house quickly and privately, contact us for an offer.

Step 1: Request an Offer

You can contact us either by phone or email or using the form below. We’ll call you back during business hours to collect some basic information about your property.

Step 2: Send Photos or Video Tour

Normally we do a walk-through in person. However, we are adjusting our process so that you can email us photos of the exterior and interior of your home, or we can do a video walk through with you over the phone. It’s that simple!

Step 3: We Give You an Offer

After analyzing your property based on its condition and other factors, we’ll send you an all-cash offer. It’s up to you to accept or decline. We offer flexible terms and contracts tailored to your unique situation. So if you need to stay a little bit longer after the closing date, need help with closing costs or just need a more private process to sell your house, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Fill out the form below and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
