COVID-19 UPDATE

We're taking every precaution possible for our customers and team. We genuinely care about your safety and have implemented the following changes.

As we enter uncharted territory over the coming weeks and possibly months, we want you to know that SoCal Home Buyers is here for you. We are remaining open and have implemented multiple options for the safe purchase of your property.

All our work is in full compliance with social distancing and recognizes that our services are necessary for people who want options that restrict or eliminate human interaction.

If you need to sell, we can buy your house with few or zero people coming inside. You tell us what works for you, and we’ll work out a solution that makes sense and feels safe to you.

We can close when you want to close. You can pick a general date now, and we can update that date as the circumstances change. The close date is completely in your control, fast or slow. We will always agree to move the date at your request.

Our Title and Escrow Company offers a convenient mobile "window-to-window" service to limit your person to person contact during the notary process. They use a notary service called DocPros who will come to your location and stay in their car.

You meet at their car window and sign the documents, all while keeping a safe distance away. If you are not physically located in Southern California, no problem. This service is offered nationwide.

You can take pictures of your house and text/email to us, or we can arrange to take interior pictures of your house for you. We need less than 15 minutes. For safety, you can open all the doors, turn on all the lights, and we literally will not touch a single thing in your house while we get the pictures.

SoCal Home Buyers has been here for over 10 years serving Southern California, we are here to serve you today, and we will be here to serve you tomorrow.

For any questions, don’t hesitate to call us directly: 951-331-3844.

Stay safe, take care of your family and friends, and we'll all get through this together.

I had excellent experience with this company. Was selling a condo during this Covid time. They were very responsive, timely, and I closed in less than 30 days. I would highly recommend them.

I contacted SoCal Home Buyers, when my tenant gave me unexpected 30 day notice. We were planning to sell our home but not that quick. We knew that our home needed a lot of work and at this time we didn’t have the money nor the time to repair it for new buyer to take it off our hands and on time. We didn’t want to be stuck with another mortgage. I did my research on an investor and found SoCal Home Buyers which were highly rated. As soon as I contact them, they were friendly and quick. Lisa answered all my questions and stuck with us until the end. They offered to close escrow in 7 days but I needed 30days to at least let my tenant move out. They worked with me and made this process easy. We live in Arizona, so it was nicer that they accommodated us in every aspect to not drive to California to during this process. We appreciate everything they did. I would highly recommend them any day! Thank you!

I had the responsibility to sell my sister's home when she moved into a care facility. The home was a real mess as my sister never had any cleaning or yard work done in the past 10-15 years along with having a lot of junk she had collected. I called SoCal Home Buyers, on December 12, to talk about the sale process and to get an offer from them to buy the property as my sister needed it sold quickly. I spoke with Lisa who gave me the information I needed and set up an appointment for December 14. The employee, Gabino, met me at the home, asked some questions and did a walk through of the home. When he finished he told me that he could give me a written offer in 10 minutes and went to his car to process it. The offer was fair and I asked for a month to finalize the sale, I think it could have been done in 2 weeks. Cyndi, the transaction coordinator, contacted me a few days later and explained the sale and closing process. She was frequently in contact with me regarding the paperwork and closing. The sale closed on time. I am very satisfied with SoCal Home Buyers. They were a pleasure to work with and I would recommend their services to anyone. Karl Gerlach

The transaction was smooth especially considering it was complicated by more than usual paperwork from the county. I was kept appraised of the progress. The SoCal team was responsive and understood my timeframe.

I just want to thank SoCal Home Buyers for being so pleasant, efficient, and kind. From the first email and conversation with Angel, to the meeting with Gavino, the texts and emails from Cyndi, the patience and amazingly fast response time from Jenny in escrow until the final meeting with Doug went so smoothly and everyone was so nice and professional and trust worthy. Everyone was patient and kind during a very stressful time for me. Every step of the way was seem less. I had very little time to sell my Mom’s home after she passed away and the whole crew made the experience pleasant when I was a ball of nerves. Thank you so much and I would definitely recommend your company and services to my family and friends.

Doug and his team at SoCal Home Buyers were beyond fantastic. We were selling from out of state, and they made everything extremely easy. They were always there with ready answers and solutions for any issues that arose. It was the smoothest selling process we've ever had, and they really helped us with what could've been a difficult transaction. We highly recommend them.

The team at SoCal Home buyers are ethical, kind and professional people. I was going through a difficult situation while trying to sell my parents house. The team treated me with dignity, and respect and communicated with me at least once per week. The escrow company walked me through the process and answered all questions. Working with SoCal and the escrow company was very easy, during a difficult situation. Thank you SoCal Home Buyers!

The team members at So Cal Home Buyers were friendly, courteous, and very professional. I was very hesitant to sell my home, but felt very comfortable with this company’s honesty and business ethics. The team members made the process of selling my home comfortable to fit my needs and timeline. I would strongly encourage anyone looking to sell their home to contact So Cal Home Buyers first before signing a contract with any other agency.

At one of the most stressful moments in my life, I was quite fortunate to have SoCal Home Buyers by my side. The family owned business was understanding, ethical, and professional in handling the sale of my parent’s home. Doug and his lovely wife offered support in all aspects including providing an excellent escrow company which always answered my quite numerous questions. I feel very blessed to have had SoCal by my side!

From our first phone call everything went well. We actually cancelled
our appt. but Allison called us back & that turned out great. Glad she did.. Escrow
was made painless with the help of a great staff, Kristen, Jaime, & Danielle. This was very helpful as we live 6 hours away. First impressions are important & our
meeting with Gavino to look at the property & explain things set the tone for a very good experience. Many Thanks to the staff for your Hard Work.
