We know that buying and selling homes can be stressful, and so we want to help. Here’s a list of our most frequently asked questions. If these don’t answer your questions, give us a call today!
Are you a real estate agent and are there fees or commissions involved?
No, we are not licensed agents or brokers. We are real estate investors and we buy and sell properties on our own behalf. In any transaction, we represent ourselves and you represent yourself. That means that you do not pay us any commissions. If you buy one of our homes, the only fees involved are the normal costs and fees associated with purchasing a home.
What types of homes do you buy?
We buy all types of homes – any size, any condition, any situation. You don’t need to make any repairs, or even clean before we buy your home. If you’re in financial distress or just ready to move on to the next phase and are having a hard time selling, we are confident that we can help to find a solution that works for both of us. Oftentimes we can make you a fair cash offer almost immediately and close very quickly. Just give us a call!
If I'm behind on my mortgage payments, can you still buy my home?
Yes! We buy homes in any type of financial situation. We work directly with the banks, are very familiar with the foreclosure process, and often buy homes that are behind on payments.
What types of properties do you sell?
We sell all types of homes that we personally own. We have everything from complete rehabs to beautiful move-in ready homes to rental properties. If you don’t see what you’re looking for in the homes we currently own, let us know. We are constantly buying new homes, so we’re confident that we can find exactly what you’re looking for at just the right price. Just give us a call!
How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
Great question and we believe in complete transparency. Our process is rather simple. We look at the location, what repairs are needed, condition, and values of comparable houses recently sold in the area. We take everything into consideration and come up with a fair price that works for all of us.
Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
There are NO fees or commissions to work with us. We’ll make you an offer, and if it’s a fit, 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 and restore it to its original splendor. We market the house, and sell it for a profit. We’re taking all of the risk here on whether we can sell it for a profit or not. Once we buy the house from you, the responsibility is ours and you walk away without the burden of the property and it’s payments, and with cash in your hand.
How are you different from a typical real estate agent?
Average real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them. The average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 6-12 months. As you know, you pay a commission as a percent of the sales price when you work with a real estate agent. Typically, commissions are 3-6% of the sales price, so if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay between $3,000 – $6,000 in commissions to an agent. Agents provide a great service for those that can wait 6-12 months and who have room to pay the commission on the sale. We actually buy houses. We don’t list houses. We can make a decision to buy your house within a couple days, sometimes even the same day) We take the risk to buy the house with our own cash, repair the house, and market it ourselves to find a buyer.
Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
There is no obligation at all. 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 a cash offer that’s fair for everyone. 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. If you decide not to sell, we respect that decision but hope you will consider us in the future if the need arises.
