Have questions? We’re happy to answer them. Here is a list of some of the most common questions we get along with our answers. If you still have a question that you don’t see answered here, then please email us at [email protected] (or give us a call at 1-800-385-3289).
Q: Are you listing my house on the MLS or are you buying it?
A: Great question. We’re not realtors, so we can’t (and don’t want to) list your house — we actually want to BUY IT. We buy houses Florida that fit our specific criteria. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another home owner or keep it as a rental ourselves – every property is different. The main idea here, though, is that we have no interest in listing your house — we actually want to buy it.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: There are times we have to purchase a house below market value so we can make a fair profit after taking on the cost of any and all of the required renovations. However there are times we can buy your house at fair market value. We can offer you a fast, no hassle, all-cash offer, we can close quickly, are very flexible on terms of the sale, and will buy your Florida house in any condition – yes, any condition at all. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house in Florida sold quickly, then let’s talk and agree on a fair win-win price for both of us.
Q: How do you determine the price you’ll offer on my Florida house?
A: Great question. We have a rather simple process of coming up with our offer price that we present to you. We look at the location, what repairs are needed, condition, and values of comparable houses recently sold in the same neighborhood. As you know, house values in Florida can change quickly from area to area, especially when you factor in age of development, views and other items. So, we take everything 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: There are NO fees or realtor commissions at all to work with us. None whatsoever. We’ll make you an offer and if it works for you, then we’ll proceed to buy your Florida house at the agreed terms. No hassle, no fees — just an easy closing process. We’ll make our money after we’ve bought the house, paid for all the renovations and marketed it to new homeowners. That’s a lot of risk we take on to make our fair profit — what you get is a quick and easy no-fee closing, along with the peace of mind knowing you can move on unburdened.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents in Florida, like elsewhere, list properties on the MLS and hope they can find a qualified buyer. Sometimes this works well, sometimes it doesn’t. Your property runs the risk of sitting on the open market for longer than anticipated — maybe your agent has it priced too high, maybe it’s in a less than desirable area or maybe the repairs are too expensive for your typical homebuyer to imagine taking on. You’re also competing with all the other homes currently for sale — buyers in today’s market have choices. Whatever the case, a key difference between listing with an agent and selling to us is that with an agent — you have no guarantee you’ll find a buyer. With us, you do because we are the actual buyer for your home! We are the house buyers in Florida.
We’re also going to buy with all cash, and won’t charge you any commissions. Why? Because realtors charge commissions, and we are buyers who are going to buy your house not list it. So no commissions at all.
Q: What if I owe more than my home is worth?
A: This is not an uncommon situation in Florida. Many homeowners have ‘underwater mortgages’ where they owe more than their home is worth. The likely scenario is for us to buy your house as a short sale. Yes, no cost. So if your Florida mortgage is upside down, don’t worry — ask us how we can help for free.
Q: I’m facing foreclosure! Can you help me?
A: In almost all cases, YES WE CAN. The most important thing is for you to contact us NOW. We need to understand how much you owe and whether a sale or auction date has actually been set. We’ll go over your options, including us buying your Florida house quickly for cash so that you don’t get foreclosed upon. We don’t want a foreclosure following you around for the next 7 years or so — that why we need to talk immediately. There’s no obligation to work with us, of course, but we want to explain all of your options so that you can make the best decision for your family. The decision on how to proceed is always yours.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is no obligation at all by reaching out to us. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll begin our analysis. If we feel it may be a fit, then we’ll arrange an in-person walkthrough to learn a bit more so we can then present you with an all cash offer. From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us. You’re the owner, so you decide without any hassle from us. We’re just here to give you your options — if you want us to buy it, then we’re ready to work with you.
