Q: Who are you?
A: We are Hayden and Anna Lyon. We’ve been “doing” real estate since 2011 and steadily grown our business and partners to include closing/title companies, contractors, and real estate agents. Learn more about us on our company page.
Q: Why “Cowtown” Home Buyers?
A: Fort Worth has strong historical ties to the cattle industry and became known as “Cowtown” and “where the West begins.” We consider Fort Worth our hometown and take pride in its historical significance and the beautiful town that it has become. We couldn’t think of a better way to honor Fort Worth than by embracing what Fort Worth is known for.
Q: Where do you buy property?
A: We buy properties all over the Fort Worth metroplex, and sometimes even beyond. If you’re familiar with the area, sellers and friends will often hear me say “we stay inside the 820 circle”, but we’ve never turned down an opportunity to help a homeowner. We’ve bought properties all over Texas, including Fort Worth, Dallas, Granbury, and Austin! Always reach out to us if you’ve got questions about whether we buy in your area!
Q: Is a “we buy houses company” right for me?
A: Our answer will always be “YES!” but ultimately it’s up to you and what is in the best interest of you and your family. We’ve worked with all sorts of homeowners, and more often than not, they’re looking for a quick and easy sale that doesn’t involve all the extra requirements that come with selling the traditional way. It never hurts to reach out to us. There’s never any obligation when you get an offer from us.
Q: What types of properties do you buy?
A: The most common types of properties we buy are single-family homes, but we’ve bought other types of property as well, like land, duplexes, and 4-plexes. We also buy property in any price range, so don’t be concerned if you think your property is not valuable enough or too expensive.
Q: Do you really buy houses in any condition?
A: Yes we do! Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages to see the types of transformations we do. There’s nothing we haven’t seen before and nothing we won’t take on.
Q: Am I locked into using your service when I submit your form?
A: Absolutely not! Submitting our form is the first step for us to talk to you about getting your home sold, but there is no obligation to move forward with working with us. Think of submitting our form like sending a text message or an email. We receive it and get in touch with you within 24 hours.
Q: How do you determine your offer?
A: Check out our How it Works page. We consider four critical variables when putting your offer together: After Repair Value, Cost of Repairs, Our Selling Costs, and Profit. Many times, we present our offer during our initial walkthrough and break down everything you need to know about how we calculated your offer.
Q: How do I get an offer?
A: Fill out the form below or give us a call. Hayden or Anna will contact you within 24 hours.
Q: What information will you need from me to buy my home?
A: First, we only need the property address and a good email address to reach you. After completing the first form, you’ll be prompted to complete an optional second form where you can provide additional details about the house you’re trying to sell and the best time to reach you.
Q: How long does it take to get an offer?
A: Many times, we present same-day offers during our initial walkthrough and break down everything you need to know about how we calculated your offer. However, sometimes we may have to consult with our construction team if the required repairs are beyond what Hayden can determine during the first visit. No worries though, you’ll typically have an offer back to you within 24 hours.
Q: Does selling my house to Cowtown Home Buyers cost anything?
A: Never. We cover all closing costs that one would expect out of a routine sales transaction, and sometimes more. Here’s a list of some of the costs we have covered in the past: title fees, administration fees, document prep fees, mobile notary fees, legal fees, and more.
Q: Are you realtors who just plan to list my house?
A: We are not realtors, agents, brokers, or anything else that might be considered such. We are simply a husband and wife team who buy houses. Rest assured that we are the end buyers of your home, so you will only work with us and our title company throughout the entire process.
Q: What happens after the sale of my house?
A: What we do with the houses we buy after closing depends on our exit strategy, which might include keeping it as a rental, fixing and flipping, or partnering with other investors to complete the repairs required, if any.
Q: Is it best to contact you by phone, email, or form fill out?
A: We are available in any way that fits your needs. Submitting the form through our website gives us preliminary information about the property you are trying to sell, so we can be better prepared for our first conversation. Feel free to call us directly as well. We love hearing from homeowners interested in our services and having the first conversation over the phone is just the start. What matters most is that you just reach out, no matter what way you prefer.
Q: I’m facing foreclosure. Will you still buy my home?
A: Yes! As long as the bank has not taken possession of the home, there are ways for us to help you get the home sold. Check out how we help homeowners avoid foreclosure!
Q: I just inherited a home. Will you still buy the home?
A: Yes! Inherited homes are some of our most common purchases because we know all the ways that we can help. We’ve helped plenty of sellers bypass and/or avoid probate or going through court, saving them thousands in legal fees. Check out how we help homeowners sell inherited homes!
Q: I’m tired of being a landlord. Do you buy houses with bad tenants?
A: Yes! We buy occupied homes all the time simply because the homeowner (aka landlord) doesn’t want to deal with the hassle of bad tenants, evictions, lack of payment, repairs, and so much more. We’ve purchased homes and gotten bad tenants back on track, but also gone through evictions. Let us take care of the hard work if you’re tired of being taken advantage of by bad tenants.
Q: I want to sell my house, but I also want cash flow. Do you buy homes with owner financing?
A: Yes! This is one of our favorite strategies. Many times we can offer more for your home if you are willing to owner finance. Check out some advantages of selling your home with owner financing!
