Are you behind on property taxes? and wondering if you can sell your house fast for cash in St. Louis?

Well, just because you owe back taxes does not mean you can't sell your home! Your property may have an IRS lien or a lien from the municipality or some other organization. Understand that you do have options and other avenues to get rid of your property. Core Properties St. Louis has extensive experience and knowledge in offering options to people who need to get out from under tax liens.

Having a tax lien on your property, whether from the IRS or some other organization, at the end of the day is going to have to be paid off. These liens usually extend to the value of your home and other financial holdings. So how exactly do you sell your home when you owe back taxes?

The first thing you need to determine is the value of your home and how much you owe in back taxes. This will let you know if selling your home will be able to cover your debt. If the value of your home is greater than your debt, you will be able to sell your home. Keep in mind that owing back taxes may put you on a time limit to avoid any further ramifications. The standard time for selling a home through a real estate agent is 68 days, if that is too long, then that is where Core Properties St. Louis comes in. As cash home buyers, we buy your home as-is and can have you closed in as little as a week.

What happens when I stop paying property tax and I am behind on my real estate taxes?

When you stop paying your property taxes, interest and penalties start to add up and the amount just keeps growing. In some cases, a grace period is given before any penalties start occurring. If enough time lapses and you haven't made any payments towards your debt, a property tax lien will be placed against your property, and this lien takes priority over any and all other liens. This means you are unable to sell your home until your debt is paid. If the situation continues without you making amends, that tax authority has the right, and may very well, sell your home in order to pay off your debt. Another option is that the lender may add the amount of your property tax debt to your mortgage balance, and if you're unable they can move to foreclose on your property.

But before things get to that point, there are a few options available to you: First, you may be able to contest the assessed value of your home in order to reduce the tax amount. In order to win your appeal, you will need to prove that the estimated market value was unfair or inaccurate in some way shape, or form. Due to your age, disability, income, or other factors, you may be able to lower or postpone your payments. There may also be the opportunity to pay your debt off in installments rather than one lump sum. Of course, all of these options will require proof and processing fees.

In case where you think that none of the above options work! Then know that we are here to help buy your house for cash! So if you are behind on your payments don't waste any more time, give Core Properties a call now.

If you are behind on your property tax, we will buy your home for cash. Avoid House lien, foreclosure & bad credit! Our process is:

  • Stress-free and quick as possible.
  • No wait for financing to go through.
  • Cash transferred in five days or less.

The easiest thing you can do is sell your house “as-is” – what this means is you don’t have to fix a thing. Many investors will buy a home “as-is” so that they can fix it up and sell it to an end user. This saves the original owner time and money which could be better spent doing just about anything else.

Core Properties will buy your house “as-is” and pay cash for your home so you don’t have to wait for financing to go through. We can make an offer and close the sale often times in less than a month. With Core Properties, once the deal is closed, you get the cash via wire transfer in five days or less, because everyone could use some cash fast.
