Frequently Asked Questions
Looking for answers to your questions? Here’s a quick collection of some of the questions that people ask us most, along with our answers. If you still have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll be happy to provide you with answers.
Q: I want to sell my house. Will you be listing it on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: Great question. We are not agents and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers. After you sell us a house that meets our purchasing criteria in Columbus, we may repair the house and resell it to another homeowner or keep it ourselves as a rental property.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: We purchase most houses at below market value (we do this so we can resell them at a profit to another homeowner). We are looking to get a fair discount on each property. However, in our experience, many sellers aren’t necessarily expecting a large “windfall” on their properties, but rather appreciate that our best offer is in cash, we offer the fastest closing available (no waiting for financing), there are no fees or agent commissions, and no time or effort is required to fix up the property. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in selling your house as quickly as possible, then let’s see if we can agree upon a fair win-win price. (Besides, our no-obligation pricing commitment means you do not have to move forward with our offer, but it can’t hurt to hear us out!)

Q: How do you determine a 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, the current condition, what repairs are needed, and the value of comparable houses sold in the area recently. As you know, house values have taken a huge hit in the last five years and most areas still haven’t seen prices return to normal. We take many pieces of information into consideration and come up with the best cash offer that works for both of us. We always come up with the best win-win price!
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: There are NO FEES! This is what makes working with us stand out from traditional methods of selling your house. There are No Fees or commissions when you sell your house to us. We’ll make you a cash offer and, if it’s a fit, we’ll buy your house (and pay all the closing costs too!). No hassle. No commissions. We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house (if any) and sell it for a profit. We take on all the risks of whether we can sell the property for a profit or not. Once we buy the house from you, the responsibility is ours and you walk away with cash in your hand and without the burden of the property or its payments.
Q: How are you different from real estate agents?
A: Our goal of being trustworthy investors is to help you with your situation and provide you with the cash you need! Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them for a commission. The agent shows the property to prospective buyers, if there are any (the average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 6-12 months), and then take a percentage of the sale price upon closing the deal. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 3-6% of the sale price of your house (so, if you are selling 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 to sell and don’t mind giving up some of the sale price to pay for commissions and fees. But that’s how we’re different. We are not agents. We are trusted home buyers. Our company actually buys your house. We don’t list houses and, since we’re actually buying the house from you, we pay in cash with no fees and commissions and make our decision about buying your house within a couple of days (usually on the same day). Again, we make our living by taking on the risk by of buying your house with our own cash, repairing the house, and marketing it ourselves to find a buyer (which is the hard part in this current market).
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is absolutely zero obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll take a look at things, set up a call with you to find out a bit more, and make you the best all-cash offer that’s fair for you and fair for us. From there, it’s 100% your decision whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us. We won’t hassle and harass you. It’s 100% your decision, and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.
