Frequently Asked Questions
Maybe you have a few questions. That’s okay; many people do. So here’s a quick collection of many of the questions people often ask us… along with our answers. If you still have a question, do not hesitate to contact us (or give us a call) and we’ll be more than happy to answer it for you.
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: Great question. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses that meet our buying criteria. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another homeowner or we will keep the house as a rental ourselves.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Many of the houses we purchase are below the market value (we do this so we can resell it at a profit to another homeowner). We are looking to get a modest and fair discount on a property. However, in our experience, many sellers aren’t necessarily expecting a huge “windfall” on the property but rather appreciate that we can offer to pay cash, we close very quickly (no waiting for financing), and no time or effort or expense is required on your part to fix up the property or pay large agent fees. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house sold fast… let’s see if we can come to a fair win-win price so you can get paid and move on. (Besides, our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you do not have to move forward with the offer we give… but it’s good to know what we’re offering! What do you have to lose?)

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Great question, and we’re an open book: Our process is very straightforward. We look at the location of the property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the property, and values of comparable houses sold in the area recently. As you know, house values have dropped in the last 5 years and most areas still haven’t seen prices bounce back. We take many pieces of information into consideration… and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too. We are looking for a win-win solution.
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: This is the big difference between selling us the house and selling it traditionally: There are NO fees or commissions when you decide to sell us your house. We’ll make you a cash offer, and if it’s a fit then we’ll buy your house (and we’ll often pay for the closing costs too!). No hassle. No fees. We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house (if any) and sell it for a profit (we are taking a big risk when we purchase the house on you because profit is not guarunteed… we take on all risk associated with the property and you walk away with cash and don’t have to worry about the house any more).
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents list properties on the market and hope that someone will buy them. The agent shows the properties to prospective buyers if there are any (the average time to sell a property in many markets right now is about 6-12 months) and then take a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer. You typically have to pay around 6% of the sales price to realtors (so if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay around $6,000 in commissions to an agent). Agents provide a great service for those that can wait 6-12 months to sell and who can afford to pay that large amount of commission money to the agent. But that’s where we’re different from them: We’re not agents, we’re home buyers/investors. Our company actually buys houses. We don’t list houses. Since we’re actually the one buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash… we can make a decision to buy your house within 48 hours (sometimes the same day). Again, we make our living by taking the big risk to buy the house with our own cash, repairing the house, and marketing it ourselves to find a buyer (which is the hard part in this market).
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: Not at all! There is absolutely zero obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll take a look at things, possibly 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… and we won’t hassle you, won’t harass you… it’s completely up to you if you want to move forward with us.
