Frequently Asked Questions
Looking for answers to your questions? Here’s a quick collection of some of the questions people ask us along with our answers. If you still have questions, don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll be happy to provide you with the answers.
Q: I want to sell my house. Will you be listing it on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: Great question. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers: Sell us your house fast in Columbus that meet our purchasing criteria and from there we may repair the house and resell it to another home owner or keep it as a rental ourselves.
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 our best offer is in cash, we have fast closing available (no waiting for financing), and no time or effort or fees is required on your part to fix up the property or pay agent commission. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house sold fast, then let’s see if we can come to a fair win-win price. (Besides, our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you do not have to move forward with the offer we give… but it’s good to know what we can offer!)

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 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. We take many pieces of information into consideration… and come up with the best offer that works for us and works for you too. We should be able to come up with the best win-win price!
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: NO FEES! 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 to 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 closing costs too!). No hassle. No fees. 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 it’s payments… and with cash in your hand).
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Our goal being a trustworthy home buyer is to help you with your situation and providing you the cash that you need at the same time! Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them for a commission. 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 6-12 months) and then take a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 3-6% of the sale price of your house (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 to sell and who don’t mind giving up some of that sale price to pay for the commissions and fees. But that’s where we’re different: We’re not agents, we are a trusted home buyer. Our company actually buys houses. We don’t list houses. Since we’re actually the one buying the house from you, and we Pay in Cash with No Fees and Commissions… we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple of days (sometimes on 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).
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, maybe 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 on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us… and we won’t hassle you, won’t harass you… it’s 100% your decision and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.
