Frequently Asked Questions

We Buy Houses FAQ
Maybe you have a few questions.
That’s okay; most people do. So here’s a quick collection of some of the questions people ask us along with our answers. If you still have a question, don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll be happy to answer it for you on email, text or by phone. 

 

Q:  Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A:  We are professional home buyers:  We buy houses that meet our purchasing criteria.  From there, we may repair the house and resell it to another home owner or keep it as a rental ourselves.  However, if you have an option to list your house and this aligns with your goals, we can have someone from our listing department serve you as well.

Q:  Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A:  Many of the houses we purchase are below market value (we do this so we can resell it at a profit to another home owner).  We are looking to get a fair discount on a property.  However, in our experience, many sellers aren’t necessarily expecting a large “windfall” on the property but rather appreciate that we can offer cash, we close very quickly (no waiting for financing), and no time or effort or expense is required on your part of fix up the property or pay agent commissions/fees.  If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house sold fast, let’s see if we can come to a fair Win-Win price.  And, the good news is that you will have an offer and details of all of your options so that you can make the best decision for you and your family!

Q:  How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A:  Great question, and we’re an open book: Our process is very straightforward.  We look at the location of the property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the property, and values of comparable houses that sold in the area recently.  As you know, house values continually change. We take many pieces of information into consideration and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too.

Q:  Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: This is what makes us stand out from the traditional method of selling your house: There are NO fees or commissions when you sell your house us.  We’ll make you an offer, and if it’s a fit then we’ll buy your house (and we’ll pay for the seller title closing costs as well!).
No hassle.  No fees.  No appraisals.  No financing.  No contingencies.
We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house (if any) 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 any payments).

Q:  How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them.  The agent shows the properties to prospective buyers if there are any (the average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 2-6 months) and then take a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer.  Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 6% to 8% of the sale price of your house (so if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay between $6,000 to $8,000 in commissions to an agent).  Agents provide a great service for those that have time and can do any needed repairs and updates to the property. Here is where we’re different: We’re not asking to list your house on the MLS, we’re home buyers.  Our company actually buys houses.  Since we’re actually the one buying the house from you and we pay with cash, we can make an immediate decision to buy your house.  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.

Q:  Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is absolutely zero obligation for you.  We will evaluate all of information about your property.  Then, we will give you multiple options.   From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us.  This must be a Win-Win for both of us.

Q:  What is the next step?
A: The next step is to contact us about your property and situation.  You can send us information about your property from this page.  Or, you can call, text, or email us.  Thanks for your consideration and we are excited to serve you!

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similarly, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.

Testimonials

"I have never had an experience like this with someone. He was always friendly and caring. Everything went smooth at closing. We closed on our home and signed papers for the other home, which Jeremy found for us."

"We ran into financial problems after living in the property for 23 years...we went to Jeremy who made a suggestion on how to pay those loans and get out from under the debt. We are very satisfied with the outcome, and thank Jeremy very much."

"Not only did Jeremy have the highest bid, but he was also very professional. He did everything he said he was going to do, and his references checked out."

"[The process] was easy, fast, and quick. That's how I want to do it. I am happy and I trust him. Everything came through the way Jeremy said it would, so I am happy."

"I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anybody."
