Frequently Asked Questions
Maybe you have some questions. That is perfectly fine; most people do. So here’s a quick list of some of the questions people ask us … along with our answers. If you still have any questions, feel free to contact us (or give us a call) and we will be happy to answer anything.
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually purchasing it?
A: Fabulous question. We’re not real estate agents, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses Savannah that meet our criteria for purchasing. From there, we might repair the house and resell it to another homeowner or keep it ourselves as a rental.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Many of the homes we buy are below market value (we do this so that we can resell them at a profit to another owner). What we are looking for is a fair discount on a property. However, in our experience, many sellers don’t necessarily expect a big windfall on their property. These types of homeowners appreciate that we can offer cash, we close very quickly (without waiting for financing), and no time, effort, or expense is required on your part to fix the property or pay fees to an agent. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in selling your home quickly, let’s see if we can come up with a fair price that is mutually beneficial. (Also, our no-obligation price commitment means you don’t have to go ahead with the deal we’re offering … but it’s nice to know what we’re offering!)

Q: How is the price to be offered for my house determined?
A: Great question, and we are an open book. Our process is very simple. We look at the location of the property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the property and the values of comparable homes recently sold in the area. As you know, home values have taken a big hit in the last 5 years and most areas have not raised prices again. We take many pieces of information into consideration and then come up with a fair price that works for us and for you too.
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: Here’s what sets us apart from the traditional method of selling your home: There are NO fees or commissions when you sell your home to us. We’ll make you an offer, and if it fits, we’ll buy your home (and often pay closing costs, too). No hassle. No fees. We earn our money after paying for the home repairs (if applicable) and sell it for a profit. Here we take the risks of whether we can sell it for profit or not. Once we buy the house from you, the responsibility is ours and you can leave without the burden of the property and your payments, often with cash in hand.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents list properties and wait for someone to 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 6 to 12 months). If they find a buyer, they take a percentage of the sale price. Most often, the agent’s commission is 3-6% of your home’s sale price (so if it’s a $ 100,000 home, you’ll pay between $ 3,000 and $ 6,000 in commissions to an agent). Agents provide excellent service for homeowners who can wait 6-12 months to sell and who don’t mind giving up some of that sales price to pay commissions. But that’s where we are different: we are not agents, we are home buyers. Our company actually buys houses. We do not list houses. Since we are the ones who buy your home and pay cash, we can make the decision to buy your home in a few days (sometimes the same day). Again, we make a living by taking the risk of buying the house with our own cash, repairing the house, and marketing it ourselves to find a buyer (which is the hardest part in this market).
Q: Is there any charges or fees when I submit my info?
A: There is absolutely no fees for you. Once you tell us a little about your property, we’ll go over things, maybe schedule a call with you to find out a little more, and make you a cash offer that’s fair to you and fair to us. From that moment on, it is 100% your decision whether you want to sell us your house or not. We will not bother you and we will not harass you. It is 100% your decision and we will let you decide what is right for you.
