Frequently Asked Questions
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.
Who Typically Sells Houses to We Buy Houses Cash DMV?
People from all walks of life sell to us, but they all share one thing in common: They want to sell a house quickly, to a trusted home buyer who can make a cash offer and close on their schedule.
Here are just some of the reasons people sell to us:
If you find yourself in one of these situations, contact us and let us show you how we can help.
Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
We do not list houses on the MLS. 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.
How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
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. We take many pieces of information into consideration and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too.
Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
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. 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 often with cash in your hand.
How are you different from a real estate agent?
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 6-12 months. If the real estate agent is able to find a buyer, they then take a percentage of the sale price. 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, who don’t mind giving up some of that sale price to pay for the commissions, and are able to perform repairs needed to sell.
This is where we’re different. We are home buyers. Our company actually buys houses. Since we’re actually the one buying the house from you and we pay with all cash we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple days, sometimes 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.
Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
There is absolutely zero obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we will set up a call with you to find out a bit more so that we can give you the best possible 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 or won’t harass you. It’s 100% your decision and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.
Do you charge a fee for visiting my house and making an offer?
Absolutely not. We do this entirely at no charge.
Can I sell an inherited house?
If you’ve inherited a house, you’re entitled to do whatever you like with it, including selling it. We can help with your inherited house.
Can you sell a house in pre-foreclosure?
Each situation is unique. We work with each homeowner individually to help provide solutions. Let’s talk about what you’re up against and make a plan to help you avoid foreclosure.
Can you sell your house if you’re behind in payments?
We can close in as few as three weeks, we could have your cash in hand even before you miss another payment and help you avoid foreclosure altogether.
