Most people do. So, here’s a quick collection of some of the common questions we get… with our answers next to them. If you still have a question don’t hesitate to shoot us an email through our contact page (or give us a call).
A: Great question. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We buy houses in the DFW area that fit our buying criteria. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another home owner or keep it as a rental ourselves.
A: We have to purchase a house below market value so we can resell it at a profit to another home owner. However, if you’re in foreclosure you likely don’t have equity… so we can often negotiate with the lender for a discount on the property. In the end, we have to get a fair discount on a property so we have room to make a profit when we resell it. But, we bring to the table a fast, no hassle, all-cash offer… we can close quickly, are very flexible on terms of the sale, and will buy your house in any condition. If that's what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house sold fast… lets talk and see if we can come to a fair win-win price.
A: Great question and we’re an open book… so I’m glad you asked. Our process is rather simple. We look at the location, what repairs are needed, condition, and values of comparable houses sold in the area recently. As you know, house values have taken a huge hit in the last 5 years and most areas still haven’t seen prices come back up. So, we take everything into consideration… and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too.
A: There are NO fees or commissions to work with us. We’ll make you an offer, and if its a fit… we’ll buy your house (and we’ll often pay for the closing costs too!). No hassle. No fees. We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house (if any) to fix it up so it’s nice and pretty… market the house, and sell it for a profit (we’re taking all of the risk here on whether we can sell it for a profit or not, once we buy the house from you… the responsibility is ours and you walk away without the burden of the property and it’s payments… and oftentimes with cash in your hand).
A: Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them. The average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 6-12 months. As you know, you pay a commission as a % of the sales price when you work with a real estate agent. Often times it’s 3-6% of the sales price (so if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay between $3,000 – $6,000 in commissions to an agent). Agents provide a great service for those that can wait 6-12 months in many cases to sell and who have room to pay the commission on the sale.
Our company actually buys houses. We don’t list houses. Since we’re actually the one buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash… we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple days (sometimes the same day). Again, we make our living by taking the risk to buy the house with our own cash, repair the house, and market it ourselves to find a buyer (which is the hard part in this market).
