Frequently Asked Questions

You may have some questions about our process and how we differ from traditional real estate agents. Here are some of the most common questions we receive:

Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or buying it?

A: We are not real estate agents; we are professional home buyers. We purchase houses directly from homeowners, and we don’t list them on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). Instead, we make a quick decision to buy within a few days, often on the same day.

Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?

A: Real estate agents list properties and hope to find a buyer, which can take several months. They also charge a commission of 3-6% of the sale price. In contrast, we buy houses directly from homeowners, eliminating the need for a lengthy listing process and expensive commissions.

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t agree with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similarly, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value the bank needs to close the loan.

Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?

A: Yes, we believe in offering fair prices for properties. We understand that selling a home is a big decision, and we want to make the process as easy and stress-free as possible for you. We typically offer below-market value for properties, but we also take into account the condition of the property, the location, and recent comparable sales in the area. We also pay cash for homes, which can save you time and money on closing costs.

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?

A: We use a variety of factors to determine the price we offer on your house, including:

  • The location of the property
  • The condition of the property
  • The repairs that are needed
  • The value of comparable houses sold in the area recently

We take all of this information into account to come up with a fair price that works for both of us.

Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?

A: No, there are no fees or commissions to work with us. We are a direct buyer, which means that you save on the listing fees that you would typically pay to a real estate agent. We may also pay for some of the closing costs associated with selling your home.

Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my information?

A: Absolutely not. There is no obligation for you to submit your information or to accept our offer. We will provide you with a no-obligation cash offer, and you are free to decide whether or not you want to sell your house to us. We want you to make the decision that is best for you.
