Frequently Asked Questions
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: Do you list my house on the MLS or actually buy it?
A: Great question. We’re not real estate agents, and we don’t list houses on the MLS. We are professional local home buyers: We buy houses Kansas City that meet our criteria. We may repair the house and resell it to another homeowner or keep it as a rental ourselves.
Q: What kind of price point do you purchase properties at?
A: Many of the houses we purchase are below market value (so we can resell it at a profit to another homeowner or investor). We are looking to get a fair discount on properties. Many sellers we work with aren’t necessarily expecting a large profit on the property but rather appreciate that we can offer cash, close very quickly, and no time, effort, or expense is required on their part to fix up the property or pay agent commissions/fees. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house sold fast… submit your information or call us to receive a cash offer today!
Q: How do you determine your offer price?
A: 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 everyone involved.
Q: Do I pay any fees/commissions when I work with you?
A: 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 as-is. 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… with cash in your hand).
Q: How do you differ from a real estate agent?
A: 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) 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 who want the highest sale price possible, can wait 6-12 months to sell, and 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 a company that 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).
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 an 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.
