Frequently Asked Questions – Information to sell your Sacramento Home
Have a few questions? Most people do. So, here’s a quick collection of some of the common questions we get… with my answers next to them. If you still have a question don’t hesitate to shoot us an email through my contact page (or give us a call).
Q: Are you listing my Sacramento house on the MLS or buying it?
A: We buy houses that fit our buying criteria. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another home owner or keep it as a rental.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: I must purchase a house below market value, so I can resell it at a profit to another home owner. However, if you’re in foreclosure you likely don’t have equity… so I can often negotiate with the lender for a discount on the property. In the end, I must get a fair discount on a property, so I have room to make a profit when I resell it. But I bring to the table a fast, no hassle, all-cash offer… I can close quickly, am very flexible on terms of the sale, and will buy your house in any condition. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house sold fast… let’s talk and see if we can come to a fair win-win price.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them. The average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 6-12 months. As you know, you pay a commission as a % of the sales price when you work with a real estate agent. Often it’s 3-6% of the sales price (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 and who have room to pay the commission on the sale. We are house buyers that pay cash for houses, close quickly, and buy properties in as-is condition.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: No obligation at all. Once you tell us a bit about your property, We’ll 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 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.
