Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
Great question! We are not real estate sales agents or brokers and we do not list houses. We are a professional home buyers. We buy houses directly from homeowners.
How are you different from a real estate agent?
Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone comes along and buys it sooner or later. They ask homeowners to sign a 6 to 12 month listing agreement so you cannot use any other real estate brokerage during those months. And they typically charge you a 6% commission on the final sales price of the property along with closing costs. That can easily add up to thousands or tens of thousands of dollars.
We are totally different. We never charge commissions or fees. We are not a real estate brokerage. We do not list houses…ever. We are professional house buyers that buys real estate directly from homeowners. So we are the actual buyer that you are hoping to get an offer from.
We do not use banks or mortgage companies because they take too long. Most of our customers want to sell their home sooner rather than later. So we have cash ready and waiting for us to find another house to buy. Having our own cash ready means that we can close very quickly. And that means you get your house sold faster.
Am I under any obligation at all if I request a cash offer or arrange a visit?
No. Visiting your home and making a cash offer entails absolutely no obligation on your part. We’re more than happy to visit your house, answer your questions, and make an offer. There’s no obligation. You’re free to either accept or decline the offer.
How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
Our process is very simple. We look at the location of the property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the property, and values of comparable houses sold in the area recently.
You’ll then receive a competitive offer backed by local real estate expertise and current market data.
