Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How are you different from real estate agents?
Real estate agents “list” properties. They charge you a commission to sell your property. There are no guarantees, if, when and how much your property will sell for. The average property takes months to sell. Some take over a year! This uncertainty causes great stress and anxiety. And on top of that, you have to constantly keep your home spotless “just in case” a possible buyer wants to look at your home. Usually not until the day your property sells and you get your check, do you even know exactly how much you’re going to receive.
As your local, independent, professional real estate buyer, we do not want to “list” your property, we want to buy your property… NOW! We do not charge you any fees or commissions. Often within 24 to 48 hours we can make you a fast cash offer, and often as quickly as seven days or sooner you can have your money!
We want you to have a fast, hassle-free, stress-free sale!
Q. Do You Pay Market, or Retail Value?
Please do not confuse what a real estate agent tells you is the value of your property, with how much money you will actually put in your pocket if, and when the property sells.
First of all, it is quite common for a home or property to sell for 5 to 10 percent less than what the real estate agent lists it for.
Secondly, when using real estate agents, it not uncommon that you as the seller, will probably be required to do a number of repairs to satisfy the buyer. These repairs could cost thousands of dollars.
Third, do not forget your holding costs. (Your loan payments and the cost of your money tied up in the property, which could be making you money, somewhere else.) A real estate agent will not pay your mortgage payments, taxes, insurance and HOA dues for you while you wait for a buyer. We will buy your house now!
Finally there are commissions to the agent which can be as high as 7 percent, and your closing costs which can be as much as 3 percent.
A real estate agent could tell you your house or property is worth X amount of dollars. By the time your agent sells it, figure in your holding costs, repair costs, commissions, selling costs etc. etc., you might put X amount of money, less tens of thousands in your pocket!
Q: How much will you pay me?
Your local, independent, professional property buyer, is dedicated to making you a fast cash offer that will be “win, win” for both of you. Your local buyer is committed to providing you the fastest, possible, stress-free sale.
Each local buyer has the flexibility to offer you a number of personalized purchasing programs. Each has their own methods and formulas to determine how much they can pay for a home or property. All allow you to benefit from the fastest possible sale and to sell your property without doing any work or repairs.
How much your local buyer can pay for your home or property will be based on many factors. These include the condition and repairs that are needed, the time factor, whether you need to be cashed out, or if a creative solution can be achieved.
Q: Do you buy houses if they are trashy, run down, or in disrepair?
We buy ALL types of houses! Any Condition, Any Location, and Any Price Range. Everything from a run-down old shack sliding off its foundation to multi-million dollar mansions that need no repairs at all.
Q: Are there any fees involved?
NO! We do not charge any fees to make an offer or to buy your house. That includes NO real estate commissions!
Q: Am I under any obligation if I fill out the form or you make an offer?
No, there is absolutely no obligation. We will make you an offer quickly and you are free to either accept or reject it.
