You may have questions or concerns regarding selling your house. It’s okay to have some questions or concerns about selling your home. Many people do. Below is a list of common questions that we get and our answers. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
Q: Will you list the house on the MLS? Or will you be buying it?
A: This is a great question. We are not agents and don’t sell homes. Professional house-buyers are what we do. We only buy homes that meet our criteria. We have two choices. You have two options. One, fix it and rent it out to someone else.
Q: Are you willing to pay fair prices for real property?
A: A lot of houses we acquire are less than their market value and we resell them for profit to other property owners. A great deal is achieved when buying a house. Based on our experience many sellers don’t expect a large “windfall”, but prefer to have cash and close quickly. Let’s talk if you are interested in this and you realize the importance of selling quickly.
Q: What is the best way to figure how much it will cost me to purchase my home?
A: We’re glad to help answer that great question. Our process is very simple. The house’s exact location is taken into consideration, along with the work required, as well as the current state and prices for similar homes that are being sold within the area. The market value of houses has declined over the past half-decade and most prices have not recovered. The pricing is based on a range of factors. Both parties benefit.
Q: Are there any commissions or fees for your services?
A: We don’t charge any fees for selling your house. If we make a fair offer and you accept it, then we will buy your home without any additional fees. After we have paid for repairs to the house, we make money and then sell it at a profit.
Q: How do you distinguish yourself from real estate agents?
A: In order to find a buyer, real estate agents will advertise homes. The agent will show the homes to potential buyers and take a portion of the sales price if anyone is found. The typical compensation for an agent is three to six per cent of the sale price. For example, if you have a $100,000 home, you will pay between $3,000-$6,000 in commissions.
If you are prepared to wait six to twelve months before selling your home and can surrender some of the sales price for commissions, agents are an excellent resource. This is where our differences lie: We are not real estate agents; rather, we buy homes. Our company is a real estate investment firm which buys homes. Houses are not put on the market by us. Because we purchase houses directly from homeowners, we can offer to buy the house in a matter of days. Simply put, our business is built on taking the risk and buying your house, fixing it up, then marketing it to buyers.
Q: Should I submit my personal information even if it isn’t necessary?
A: There is no obligation on you to take any action. After you give us some information about the house and we get back to you, we will take a look at it, make an offer for cash, and then you can decide if that is what you want. After that, you will decide if and when to sell your home to us.
