Q: ARE YOU LICENSED REAL ESTATE AGENTS?
A: Great question, and we’re an open book:
No. We’re real estate investors.
We don’t “list” real estate, we buy it. We also don’t charge any commissions. We will give you a fair cash offer up front, so you know what your house will sell for right then.
Agents will “list” your property and charge commissions to sell it. They can’t guarantee if and when your house will sell, or even how much it will sell for! It can take months and even a year or longer to sell a property with an agent. Most agents will ask you to make some repairs to the home to get it show ready, costing thousands of dollars and additional stress and time. Then you will have to always keep your house spotless and deal with strangers trampling through your house. If an offer comes along, you will have an inspector and an appraiser pick apart your house and most likely find more repairs are needed before you can move forward with the sale.
If you want to avoid all of this, just give us a call or fill out the form, and we will make this easy on you!
Q: DO YOU PAY RETAIL PRICES FOR HOMES?
A: We will make you a fair cash offer for your home, which will be less than retail, but may end up netting you close to the same amount if you were to sell your home at a retail price. Let us explain…
First, a retail price will not be what you actually put in your pocket. In order for you to get full retail value, you will need to hire an agent and commissions can be much as 7 percent!
Second, most retail buyers will ask for the seller to pay for as much as 3% of their loan costs.
Third, you might be required to do a number of repairs to get your home “market ready” before the agent will even want to put it on the market. After inspections, most buyers will ask you to do additional repairs before they move forward with the appraisal. These repairs could cost thousands and tens of thousands of dollars and you still don’t have a guarantee that your sale will go through.
Fourth, you most likely will be making your mortgage payments during the months it will take to sell your home. You could be using that money to earn interest somewhere else!
Bottom Line: The amount of money you actually end up with in your pocket by selling retail is usually tens of thousands of dollars less than what you sell your home for. Why not save yourself all of that hassle and have us buy your home as it sits and possibly net the same amount of money?
