Maybe you have a few questions. That’s okay; most people do. So here’s a quick collection of some of the frequently asked questions people ask us, along with our answers.
If you still have a question, don’t hesitate to contact us (or give us a call) and we’ll be happy to answer it for you.
To clarify, we’re not agents, which means we won’t be listing your house on the MLS. Instead, we’re professional home buyers. If your house meets our purchasing criteria, we’ll buy it from you directly.
Once we own the property, we might choose to fix it up and sell it to someone else, or we might decide to keep it as a rental property ourselves. Either way, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that you’ve sold your house to a trustworthy buyer who will take care of everything.
Many of the houses we purchase are below market value because we plan to resell them to other homeowners at a profit. However, we are looking to get a fair discount on a property. We understand that sellers often appreciate that we can offer cash and close the deal quickly, without waiting for financing or paying agent fees. Let’s see if we can come to a fair win-win price. Also, keep in mind that our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you do not have to move forward with the offer we give.
Our process for determining the price we offer for a property is very straightforward. We consider several factors such as the location of the property, necessary repairs, its current condition, and the prices of comparable houses that have recently sold in the area. We take into account the current state of the housing market, which has seen a decline in house values in many areas over the last five years, and aim to offer a fair price that benefits both us and the seller.
No, there are no fees or commissions when you sell your house to us. We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house (if any) and sell it for a profit. You walk away without the burden of the property and its payments, often with cash in your hand.
Real estate agents list properties and wait for someone to buy them, and they often take a percentage of the sale price as commission. We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. Our company actually buys houses. Since we pay with all cash, we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple of days. We make our living by taking the risk to buy the house with our own cash, repair the house, and market it ourselves to find a buyer.
No, there is absolutely zero obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll take a look at things, maybe set up a call with you to find out a bit more, and make you an all-cash offer that’s fair for you and fair for us. From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us. We won’t hassle you or harass you. It’s entirely up to you to decide what’s right for you.
