Our Love // Hate Relationship with Stuff!!


Have you ever noticed how much we love to get stuff?  New stuff!  Old stuff!  Stuff we get from others!  Sometimes even stuff we drag out of an alley because we know ideas from Pinterest will help us save it!!  And then at some point our love of stuff is less shiny.  It turns into an inconvenience and pretty soon it is just a hassle.  Often when homeowners are ready for a change, they hesitate to make the change because of all the work involved in not only finding a new home, but getting out of their old one while maintaining their sanity.  Lynn Buys Houses can help.  First, we buy your Cheyenne // Laramie // northern Colorado home for cash.  Second we say "take what you want and leave the rest."  This is an easy way for you to move to the next stage of your life as painlessly as possible.  No packing what you don't want, no inspections, no appraisal, heck...you don't even have to sweep the floor!

Cash for Houses and Some Tears!

Other than renovating my grandma's house, this renovation was my most emotional project.

Years ago in a completely different life I started working at the Army National Guard.  I was a very shy, newly divorced, traumatized single mom of a 4 year old daughter.  The only knowledge I had of the military was from watching Saturday westerns and to say the environment was alien and overwhelming is an understatement.  Enter into my life, Jim, someone who fell just right behind my parents in the amount of influence he had on my life.  He was my boss, my mentor and my friend.  He gave me the knowledge to become a confident employee and more important a confident  person.  He was instrumental in helping me find my strength and mature into a strong, independent person.  

I was promoted several times while working for Jim and after 30 years he retired from the military and got a civilian job.  While working at the Guard, I was eventually promoted to a position where I had the privilege of hiring Jim to develop the very difficult Military Funeral Honors program.  There never was and never will be a more perfect fit to job and person.  I was fortunate enough to work with Jim for several more years.  (His big joke was now that our boss/employee relationship had been reversed how lucky it was he had always treated me so well!)

Jim retired for a 2nd time and I left the Guard.  Whether we saw each other infrequently or not, Jim remained a significant influence on my life.  Jim passed away suddenly a few years ago.  Too soon afterwards, the love of his life, Christine, passed away.

I am sure you are asking what all of this has to do with buying houses for cash and renovating them!  Well, this house was Jim and Christine's.  They were both home bodies and loved their home. By Jim's own admittance he wasn't the handiest guy around, but took great pride in making a home for he and Christine.

Their family was traumatized and didn't know what to do with a potential inherited house.  The house went into foreclosure.  The house was then broken into and destroyed by squatters (how little protection the legal system offers in situations like this is astounding and better saved for another post).  After navigating thru the legal system to evict the squatters, the house had been used as a toilet even when there was no working plumbing, the appliances, kitchen cabinets, counter tops, and copper wire and pipe were all stolen.  There were big chunks of wall missing where they ripped out the pipe and wire.  They even stole the deck!  The state of Jim and Christine's beloved home broke my heart, but every time we had to deal with the police or go to court, I was only more determined to make this right for Jim.

Fast forward a few months....the squatters were removed, the renovations began, the renovations finished and before the house was completely finished the house SOLD.  Being able to restore Jim and Christine's house is one of the greatest honors of my life.  It is now ready for a new family to make wonderful new memories.  

While every renovation is challenging, scary, fun and rewarding, it is always about so much more than a house.  

The circumstances that bring us into a house are as different than the houses themselves.  But whether it is an overwhelming period of life, an inherited house, or you just want out and on the road to a different life, we pride ourselves on the easiest, cash transactions possible...even when it makes me cry!

A House's Life

We are privileged to meet so many wonderful Cheyenne neighbors who call to inquire about buying their house fast and for cash.  We are honored that they allow us to walk thru their homes and discuss their future.  We tailor our cash offers to fit each situation.  The offers obviously include paying cash and closing on their timeline, but more than that the offer often includes packing, moving and disposing of any items the home owners don't want to hassle with packing, moving or getting rid of.

Once we buy a house, we walk thru and try to visualize the life it had and can have and how it can be returned to its former glory.  What we always realize, though, is that regardless of the circumstances or the house's condition, at one time it was a huge part of a family's memories and life; we take the responsibility of the renovation seriously.

Who will buy my house in Cheyenne, WY

It is a great time to sell your home in Cheyenne.  If you home is in excellent condition, in a great neighborhood and looks like a model home, it will fly off the market.  What if, however, your home has some issues or you don't have the time and money. Repairs and renovations can cost thousands and take a long time.  Staging your home can be a hassle and may cost additional funds. If these are things you are trying to avoid, there are other options. 

There are companies that specialize in purchasing homes with cash, at no cost to the seller.  You can close quickly, generally in a couple of weeks, and you do not need a realtor.  It doesn’t matter what shape your house is in.  You don’t have to keep the house in show ready condition.  If you are relocating and need to go quickly they often will take care of the stuff you leave behind. 

They will generally buy your home AS IS.  It doesn’t matter if you are facing foreclosure, trying to short sell, relocating, or just want the ease and convenience of selling to a cash buyer.
