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 (or give us a call) and we’ll be happy to answer it for you.
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: Great question. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We are the professional home buyers: We buy houses in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties. If it needs repairs, we’ll take care of it.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Yes. We only send fast & fair cash offers. Because we are not flippers, we don’t need to get a deepy discounted price for your property to make a large profit. We buy and hold our properties so we can offer a fair price for your property. We complete a full market analysis to determine that price. And because our offers are in cash, you don’t have to worry about bank financing, contingencies and lender required repairs. We will buy the property in As-Is condition. We are committed to finding a win-win transaction that makes the selling process smooth and easy regardless of the situation.
Q: I’m a landlord. What will happen to my tenants?
A: We take a human approach to any tenant situation. We work with landlords all the time and build out a plan of action that works for everyone. Whether its keeping a well established tenant in place, providing additional time for a tenant to find a new lease or dealing with difficult situations like a non-paying tenant, we identify solutions that will work for every party involved and do so with humility. We have built a reputation for professionalism and empathy with Philadelphia local landlords looking to sell their properties and pride ourselves on a human-centric approach.
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, its current condition, and the value of comparable houses in the area. We send fast and fair cash offers backed by transparent market analysis and can buy your house quickly without you dealing with repairs or you paying a dime in commissions. Our process is fast, convenient and simple.
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: Nope. 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 (and we pay closing costs too!). Avoid paying both a listing agent and a buyers agent with 6% of the sales price. That 6% stays in your pocket. No fees. No commissions. No hassles.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them. The agent requires sellers to clean up the property, get it ready for showings by staging it and they require professional photos to post on the MLS. An agent parades potential buyers into your home for multiple showings. An agent often has buyers that soley rely on banks that have required contingencies, appraisals, and can cancel a transaction at any moment in the process. An agent has to be paid a 6% commission and has you locked into a contract for at least 6-months. 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. But that’s where we’re different: We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. Our local company actually buys houses. We don’t list houses. Since we’re 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). We provide an easier way to sell your home. One which gives you flexibility and is easy.
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 do our research and send you an all-cash fast & fair offer. From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us. We are Philadelphia’s Most Trusted Home Buyer that has a 5-Star Google Review rating and an A+ Better Business Bureau rating for a reason. Try us out and see why.
