Most people think the only way of selling a house or commercial property is by using a realtor. Some homeowners may try the for sale by owner route. But there is another option – home buying companies like us. We buy houses and commercial properties as is – meaning you don’t have to make any costly repairs or wait months for your property to sell, with people traipsing in and out.
And our process is quick when we buy houses. From the time we inspect your property to the time you walk away with cash in your pocket, the whole process may only take a week. Contrast that with the average 68 days to sell a pristine house using a realtor. That includes the time from listing the property, showing the home, and the typical 30 day period before closing. Trying to sell a property that needs repairs with a realtor will take a much longer period of time.
This may be a new concept for you, so we’ve put together some frequently asked questions about how and why we buy houses.
Q: Will you be listing my property on MLS?
A: No. While we have a licensed real estate agent on staff, we buy houses and commercial properties directly from you, as long as they meet our criteria. We then repair and renovate the property, and either sell it or rent it ourselves.
Q: Do you pay a fair price?
A: When we buy house we pay cash for houses and commercial properties, or limited financing that speeds up the selling process. As a result, we will offer a discounted, below full market value price. We do this so that we have the money to make the repairs and still make a profit when we resell the property. Most of our sellers appreciate that we offer cash, with no waiting. On top of that, you don’t have to make any costly repairs or spruce up the place before you sell. And you keep the full sales price – you don’t have to give 6% to a realtor.
We work with you to find a sales price that’s a win-win.
Q: How do you decide what price to offer?
A: When we buy houses we don’t just pull a number out of thin air. We look at comparable sales in the area, the location of your house or commercial building, what repairs are needed, and more.
Q: Am I under any obligation to sell to you if I submit my information?
A: No. You submit your information with no strings attached. We respond to every inquiry, and if we’re interested in your property, we’ll set up a meeting to inspect your house or commercial property so that we can come up with a good offer. Once we make the offer, it is 100% up to you if you want to accept it. And you can quit the process if you decide now is not the right time to sell.
