We’ve thrown a lot of information at you so it isn’t surprising that you have a lot of questions. We want you to have all the info you need to make your decision. Here’s a look at some frequently asked questions and the answers.
We aren’t going to list your home on the MLS system. We aren’t real estate agents or brokers and don’t have access to the MLS system. Our company buys homes and renovates them. Of course, these homes must meet our careful criteria before we purchase them.
Once we make you an offer, all you need to do is accept and set a closing date to sell your home. In most cases, after the house closes, we make all the necessary repairs and sell it to another buyer. We might even keep it as a rental property.
While we don’t buy homes at top of the market prices, the homes we usually purchase are not in the best condition and would not fetch top of the market prices unless the owner made all of the necessary repairs and renovations. It’s our goal to repair the homes and resell them. That is our business model.
Typically, the homeowners we buy from do not expect top of the market pricing for their property. These homeowners know that their property needs repair and are driven by the cash sale and fast closing we offer.
The biggest advantage for you is that you don’t need to do any of the necessary repairs or upgrades to your home. Also, you won’t be wasting money on a real estate agent’s commission, which can be between six and 16 percent of the selling price of your home.
If this sounds like something that might work for you and your personal situation, contact us to see if we can make you an offer that benefits both of us. Please, remember that once we inspect your home and make an offer, you’re under no obligation to sell us the home. The choice is always yours. It’s always beneficial to know how much we’re willing to pay for your home as-is.
Unlike working with a traditional real estate agent, you won’t need to pay any fees, commissions, or hidden expenses, when we buy your home. This is what sets us apart. We make you an offer, and if it’s what you want, you accept it without any fees or hassles. In many cases, we even pay the closing costs, which can run several thousand dollars.
We make our money after we own the home. We do all the necessary repairs and renovations before selling it to another buyer looking for a home. We’re taking a risk that we can fix your home and still make a profit. For you, once you sell your home, you walk away.
There are several factors that play a role in the amount we offer you for your home, and we strive to be transparent on those factors. The first step is to look at the location of your home. Then we look at the condition of your home and the repairs that need to be done. With that information in hand, we look at the value of comparable properties in your neighborhood.
It’s always our goal to take as much information into consideration so that we offer you a fair price for the house.
In the hope of finding a buyer, a real estate agent lists your home and markets it to a small audience. It’s their goal to find prospective buyers. Once they’ve found someone interested in your home, they bring them to the house to view. It can take as long as six to 12 months to even find someone to tour the home, much less make an offer.
Once you close on your home with a real estate agent, you pay the agent a commission or a percentage of the sale price. This percentage can be steep. For example, if you sold your home for $200,000, and the agent’s commission was six percent, you’d give the agent $12,000 of the money paid for the home. You can probably think of a lot of things to do with that extra money in your pocket.
Our company isn’t made up of real estate agents; We are cash home buyers. As the buyer, we work directly with you to pay cash for your property in mere days if needed. We are working with your timeline. Since we are paying with cash unlike when you list it traditionally with a Real Estate agent we can close as soon as you and your family are ready. We agree to buy houses knowing we are taking the risk on our end by taking on all the repairs.
No, not at all. After we receive your info, we’ll look it over. If we have further questions, we may call you, and we may schedule a visit to look at your home. If your home meets our criteria, we’ll make an as-is, all-cash offer. From there, it’s all up to you. You can choose to accept the offer or go an entirely different route. We won’t harass or hound you. We want you to make the best choice possible for you and your family.
At Fast Home Buyers, we understand what a big decision selling your home is for you. It’s our goal to partner with you during the process. We want you to be happy with the decision that you’ve made, and we take customer service seriously. We’re always ready to answer your questions and remain as transparent as possible from start to finish.
