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: Are there any additional fees attached?

A: There are no additional fees attached to the sell of your home outside of the prorated real estate taxes on your home that are due at closing.

Q: How long does it take you to close?

A: Typically we try to close in 2 weeks but in some cases it can take up to 30 days.

Q: Do you all put up earnest money?

A: Earnest money is always an option.

Q: Does the home have to be completely cleaned out?

A: We always ask that the home is completely cleaned. It cuts down on our cost, which means more money for you! However, we are willing to negotiate on the clean out.

Q: How much time do I have to move?

A: This varies deal to deal. We want this to be a great experience for you as the seller. We will work with you to determine the move out date that works best for you.

Q: Do I get any money upfront?

A: That’s a possibility if it’s negotiated with the acquisitionist during the drafting of your personal contract.

Q: What’s your story?  Who are you people?

We are a veteran-owned and St. Louis based full service real estate organization.

Q: Why do you need keys to my home before you close?

A: We like to perform our additional inspections and walk throughs during the contract period.  It’s more convenient if we have easy access to your vacant home.

Q:  Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?

A:  Great question. We are professional home buyers and we purchase properties that meet our purchasing criteria in St. Louis and surrounding areas. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another homeowner or keep it as a rental ourselves.

Q:  Do you pay fair prices for properties?

A:  Many of the houses we purchase are below market value (we do this so we can resell it at a profit to another homeowner). We are looking to get a fair discount on a property. However, in our experience, many sellers aren’t necessarily expecting a large “windfall” on the property but rather appreciate that we can offer cash, we close very quickly (no waiting for financing), and no time or effort or expense is required on your part of fix up the property or pay agent fees. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house sold fast… let’s see if we can come to a fair win-win price. (Besides, our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you do not have to move forward with the offer we give… but it’s good to know what we’re offering!)

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, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the property, and values of comparable houses sold in the area recently. As you know, house values have taken a huge hit in the last 5 years and most areas still haven’t seen prices come back up. We take many pieces of information into consideration… and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too.

Q:  Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?

A: 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 to us. We’ll make you an offer, and if it’s a fit then we’ll buy your house (and we’ll often pay for the closing costs too!). 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 the risks 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 its payments… and often with cash in your hand).

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 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 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 company actually buys houses. We don’t list 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 of 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.

Q: Can I stay a few days after I close?

A: That is a possibility to do.  It has to be negotiated in your personal contract.

Q: What title company do you use?

A: We use Freedom Title Company

Q: Why does it take 30 days to close?

A: This time period allows us to perform our due diligence on the property.

Q: Where is Jimmy?

A: Jimmy is available to speak with if you have any additional questions.

Q: How did you get my number?

A: Through our marketing company and public records.

Q: When does the title company contact me?

A: The title company will contact you during the contract period to get any additional information, if needed, and a few days before we close to schedule a time to come in to close.

Q: How did you come to your asking price?

A: We used in house data to come to a fair “as is” cash offer for your home.

Q: Can we use a different title company?

A: You are always free to use whatever title company you like to close your end of the contract.

Q: Is it really this simple?

A: Yes!  We strive to make this experience as simple, transparent, and quick as possible!
