Frequently Asked Questions
Your house or land, like other assets, has a particular value in the market, at any given time. Factors such as the location of the property, the current condition of the property, necessary repairs and upgrades as well as the expenses required to bring it up to retail standards are some of the factors that determine the price we can offer.
We want to buy your house, not list it for sale. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses that meet our purchasing criteria.
This is one of the differences between the traditional method of selling your house: There are NO fees or commissions when you sell your house us. Those fees don't exist because you're selling to us direct, without an agent. We’ll make you an offer, and if it’s a fit then we’ll buy your house. No hassle. No fees.
Real estate agents list properties for sale and hope that someone will buy them. The agent shows the properties to prospective buyers, if there are any, and then take a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer. Usually, the agent’s commission is 3-6% of the sale price of your house (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 have the time to wait for a potential buyer to come along and who don’t mind paying 6% of the sale price for an agent's services. Depending on the specific market and property, it could take months or even years for a property to go under contract. And even after you get a purchase agreement, you still have many hurdles to overcome with inspections, appraisals, renegotiating the contract, or loans potentially falling through.
In many cases, the properties that we buy don't even qualify to be listed by an agent. They are so outdated or unsafe they don't meet the standards agents want for their listings. An agent's listings reflect upon the agent and many just don't want, old, ugly or dilapidated houses in their listings.
But that’s where we come in.
We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. We don’t list houses, we buy them. Since we’re actually the one buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash.
Ugly house? Doesn't matter.
Looks like a scene from the movie "Seven"? Doesn't matter.
Bad neighborhood? Doesn't matter
No waiting and hoping. No spending money on repairs. You get the certainty of cash in your hand when you sell direct to us.
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… and we won’t hassle you, won’t harass you… it’s 100% your decision and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.
Yes, the title company that closes the transaction will usually have a few fees. This usually include the cost of an owners title policy and the cost of closing the transaction, these are standard fees in most transactions. There can also be charges that are not really fees, but costs to pay off any taxes, liens, and judgements. They will need funds to pay off these taxes, liens, and judgements plus any filing fees and wiring fees associated with these items. The seller does have to pay these items, BUT the money to pay these typically comes out of the the proceeds of the sale. And when they come out of the proceeds of the sale, no money is needed on the seller’s part to close the transaction.
