Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is your service right for me?
To be honest, only you can really answer that. Many people would rather get easy cash for their home than at least think about. People often find themselves in a bind and unable to wait the time required to sell their home via a real estate agent. If you don’t mind waiting an unpredictable period of time for your house to sell and have the time, resources, and energy to clean and fix it, a real estate agent might be the way to go. Unlike a conventional real estate sale, we provide you with a valuable service by providing you with several choices for selling your home and encouraging you to choose between them.
When selling a house, it is normal to have some concerns. Let’s go into those commonly asked questions. Your question could be the same or identical to those that have been posed here. Please email us if you have a different question or would like us to go into more depth on one of these issues. We’re here to make the method as simple and clear as possible.
Q: Do you work as a real estate agent?
We are not a real estate brokerage. Real estate brokers advertise homes for sale in the hopes of finding a buyer. When a listed home is sold, the agent makes a fee. When using the services of a real estate agent, the average wait period for a home to sell is 6 to 12 months. The average commission is 3-6% of the selling price of your home. Since we are a home buyer, we are very different from a real estate agent. We buy your building, make repairs, and then sell it. This means you’ll get your money faster and with less hassle.
Q: What kind of responsibility do I have during this process?
You are in no obligation to work with us at any time. We make you a cash offer, and you determine whether or not to take it. That’s what there is to it. There are no hidden costs, and you are under no contract. You determine whether or not to consider our cash offer. We would not bother you if you do not. We understand that selling a home is a huge decision, and we support your decision.
Q: Do you want to list my house on the MLS?
We do not list homes on the MLS because we are not real estate brokers. Instead, we are experienced home buyers. Our strategy is to buy houses, fix them up, and either resell them to homeowners or hold them and rent them out. If we believe it is the best choice for you, we can decide to assist you in listing your home on the MLS.
Q: Why should I choose you?
We are proud of the fact that we are open and frank with our clients. This is ingrained in everything we do, not just our business ideals. We are still a locally owned and run company in Columbia. That means we will meet with you in person rather than either over the phone or by email if you want. The majority of our rivals are from out of state or out of the country, and they lack the necessary expertise to make reasonable deals in the Columbia area. Customers who call us want money in their wallets as soon as possible, and we deliver on that promise.
Q: Why shouldn’t I hire a real estate agent to sell my house?
Customers choose us because of how easily we can assist them in selling. If your house follows our requirements and you can have paperwork, you should have cash in your wallet within two weeks. We may sometimes make this happen much sooner. It can take a long time for a real estate agent to sell your house. Selling a house to a real estate agent takes an average of 3-6 months, but it can take even longer. This isn’t even taking into account the amount of perplexing documents the agents would ask you to fill out.
Q: Do you “flip homes,” and if so, what exactly does that imply?
Buying a home, making renovations, and reselling it at a better price than what was paid for it is known as flipping. So, in a nutshell, that’s just what we do. We provide a service to people who do not want to “flip” their own house. This can be very costly and necessitates a great deal of expertise. Homeowners also spend money on home improvement projects as a result of inadequate workmanship or a lack of knowledge about how to maximize the value of their home. We put our own capital into upgrading your home and marketing it to potential buyers. This eliminates the need for a middleman, such as a real estate agent. We can purchase your home directly from you.
Q: How much cleaning should I do before I leave?
You are not required to clean in any way. We won’t criticize you or care how disgusting or disorganized your space is. We were going to clean and fix anyway. Simply take what you need and leave the rest to us. Many of our vendors leave behind discarded objects that they are unable to remove themselves for us to dispose of. Allowing us to treat discarded things will save you time at home and at the landfill.
Q: What Is a Fair Price For My House?
Everyone has a different idea of what constitutes a “good price.” Our goal is to offer you a price that will enable us to repair the house. We believe that this is a decent deal for you in comparison to having to pay for maintenance and out-of-pocket expenses. People choose us because they want to sell their house quickly and for cash. That is the most important selling point for us.
Once we patch it up, we hope to sell your house for more than we paid for it. That’s how we keep our company afloat. People who want cash for their house quickly , without the hassles that come with listing it for sale with a realtor enjoy our service. You are not obligated to approve our proposal. We won’t try to persuade you to buy something.
Q: What are my choices now that my house is in foreclosure?
Allow us to pay off your mortgage if your home is in foreclosure. For any borrower, foreclosure may be a traumatic event. It may be a way for you to escape eviction and still keeping your credit score. Aside from the bank, many homeowners do not have an attorney that can help them. Before it’s too late, let us make you a bid on your home.
Q: When you sell my home, will you pay me a commission?
We operate in such a manner that if your house fits our criteria, we will make you a cash offer. You are under no duty to approve or refuse our offer. There are no commissions or payments involved; all you get is cash for your home. This is the magic of how we work: if you accept our offer and close the deal within two weeks or less, you will earn cash. You will no longer have to deal with the uncertainty of waiting for your home to sell. Perhaps notably, you’ll have money in your pocket. There is no need to wait for commissions.
Q: What is the quickest way for me to close on my house?
If your home fits our standards, we will make you a cash offer within 24 hours of meeting with you. You should expect your house to close in 14 days or less at a respectable title firm in your city.
