The Stinky Truth Behind "We Buy Houses" Companies

What You Need to Know to Protect Yourself

Hi, I'm Michael Ligon, the better looking half of the Ligon Brothers, 😊 and I'm going to tell you the Stinky Truth behind all the "We Buy Houses" Companies that are swirling 🦈 around the Google machine.    


But first, why do I have the Authority to tell you anything? Well....... because I'm an expert Real Estate Investor with over twenty years of home buying and investment experience. Don't trust me? 🤔 I can prove it! Ha, ha! You didn't expect that did you. You can verify my credentials on the links below.

🛑 WAIT! Before you start scrolling around and clicking buttons, let me give you the information that you came here for, then you can check my creds! 👀


Ok, so what's the deal with all these We Buy Houses Companies? Well, first of all, most of them are NOT actual home buyers. That's right folks. Most of the websites that state "We Buy Houses" are just lead generation sites. 💻


So what's a lead generation site you ask? It's a site that collects your information and sells it to someone else. You see, there's BIG money in collecting data. Just look at all the major social media sites: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and even Google. They sell data to other companies for big profit. 🤑


So how can you tell the Real Cash Home Buyers from the Fake lead collection sites? All these websites look the same and everyone says the same thing. Well, If they don't show you a photo of the person that's going to buy your house, run! 🏃‍♂️

If you are going to give your personal details to a website, make sure it has a face on it, and the name of the Investor(s) you're going to be selling your house to.  


Do your research and make sure that you are actually dealing with a real home buying company. It's really easy for a Marketing company to build and market a website. That's what they do for a living, so it's easy for them to make hundreds of websites collecting thousands of leads. Then they contact local Real Estate Investors and ask them to buy their leads.


We get at least 50 calls a day from companies trying to sell us their leads. 😤  


I don't know about you, but I'm super careful who I give me personal details to. 🔐 At least you know you can trust the Ligon Brothers.
