In her lawsuit, Vidato said El Moussa’s company backed out of a deal to buy her home which caused her to lose out on a substantial amount of money.

Tarek Buys Houses describes itself as a “private real estate investment company dedicated to helping property-owners in tough situations sell houses for cash.”

On its website, the company touted it “pays cash for houses, single-or multi-family, in any condition, helping homeowners achieve the fairest as-is price for their home.”
