F.A.Q. - Frequently Asked Questions
I want to sell my house quickly. What's the first step to get started?
The first step is to give us a call or you can just connect with us right here on our website.  We'll ask you a few questions about the current condition of the property and present an all cash offer.  If our offer works for you, fantastic! We'll send over the paperwork and schedule a day for closing at a reputable 3rd party title company.   We can close on your timeline, so you don't feel like your being rushed out of the house, however if you do want to sell fast we can move quick too.  Once we close, the title company will either issue a check or wire the proceeds directly to your bank.  
My house is in really rough shape...do I have to fix anything before you'll buy it?
The first step is to give us a call or you can just connect with us right here on our website.  We'll ask you a few questions about the current condition of the property and present an all cash offer.  If our offer works for you, fantastic! We'll send over the paperwork and schedule a day for closing at a reputable 3rd party title company.   We can close on your timeline, so you don't feel like your being rushed out of the house, however if you do want to sell fast we can move quick too.  Once we close, the title company will either issue a check or wire the proceeds directly to your bank.  
My house isn't an "Ugly House" and doesn't need any work.  Will you still buy it?
Absolutely!  We buy pretty houses too!  We buy all types of houses for different reasons and in most cases you'll receive a higher offer from our company than you will from anyone else due to our unique buy and hold strategy.  The prettier houses make great rentals for us and since we have a team in place to handle that don't mind the prettier houses either. 
Are there any fees involved in your service? This sounds too easy.
Well, we do want to make selling your house easy.  One of the best parts about selling your house to us is that we pay all of the fees!  You won't pay any Realtor commissions (6% on average), since we're buying directly from you.  You also won't pay any fees to close (3% on average).  We're paying cash, so you get to keep more of yours.  It's our companies way of saying "Thanks" for trusting us with the sale of your house.  
What paperwork is involved? I am not an expert and want to make sure I know what I am doing.
The paperwork is very easy or at least we make it that way for you.  We use the standard AS-IS purchase agreement approved right here in the state of Florida and guide you through each step of the way.  We want to make you as comfortable as possible through the entire process. 
What happens on the day of closing?
Great question.  On the day of closing you will have an appointed time provided to you ahead of time by our title company (closing agent) to close.  During your appointment you will sign off on the seller paperwork, which includes a HUD statement (receipt of the sale) and additional paperwork required to transfer the property from your name to our company.  Then, we'll go in and sign off on our paperwork and shortly after we sign our buyers paperwork you can collect your check or the title company can wire you your sales proceeds - most sellers prefer this, since it's so easy.  
How quickly can you close?
We can close fast, sometimes even in as little as 10 days! Or, we can close slow to give you time to transition out of the property.  Either way we will always close at your convenience.     
Are you one of those companies that makes "low ball offers"?
No.  Unlike other companies many sellers have had experience with, we do not make low ball offers.  Our mindset is that if everyone doesn't win, then we all lose.  However, since we're paying cash, taking the property in it's AS-IS condition and close quick we don't pay retail pricing for the property.  Of course, every offer we present does have to make sense for our company; At the same time it has to make sense for you as well and we get that.    We take into consideration several items such as the overall condition of the home, recent sales similar to your property within the last 90 days, where your property is located and if there are any commercial structures around your house. All of these things can affect the value of a property.  
I have liens against my property.  Will that affect the sale of my house?
In short, sometimes; It all depends on the type of lien and the amount.  In most cases the liens are satisfied at closing and will be deducted from your proceeds.  This way you don't have to pay anything up front and the amount you receive at closing will assist in covering the costs. 
What's the difference between working with your company and working with a Realtor? 
Wow...this is a long one, but I will try to answer this as briefly as possible.  For starters, I'll answer your question with a question. What is the purpose of a Realtor? To bring a buyer for your house right?  Well, if you have a buyer already, such as our company, does it really make sense to pay anywhere from a 3-6% commission to repeat what you've already done?   Like any process, the more parties that are added to the decision pool, the longer and more complicated things can get.  When no one is in the middle it becomes much easier.  You communicate directly with us and we communicate directly with you. Easy. 

Lastly, when you're working with a Realtor more often than not your going to work with a traditional buyer, not an investment company. Here are a few additional drawbacks to that:

1). You're buyer is going to want to finance the purchase.  Excessive repairs can drastically affect the ability for your buyer to get financed for the loan and for you to sell the house for a reasonable offer. Most banks won't finance properties when major repairs are present, such as roof needing to be repaired/replaced or if there's a sink hole.

2). If the house is in need of any work whatsoever, since your traditional buyer is not expert at renovating properties like we are, be prepared for them to ask for a "concession" at closing or even to whip out the wallet and cure the repairs before closing.  This is a fee above and beyond closing costs and Realtor commissions.

Again, the financial institution also may not be willing to finance the buyers loan and it's highly likely that you will have to "whip out the wallet" prior to closing to cover these repairs out of pocket.  This can be a large added expense. You could even be asked to pay around a 4%+ "cash back at closing" fee. 

All of these fees are unnecessary expenses that you more than likely will incur during that process. 

As you can see, a higher offer from a buyer presented by a Realtor might look good at first. However, that number slowly gets widdled down with items on the back end.  This can result in you receiving a lower offer than our company would present. 

3). Let's not forget....additional days on market due buyers loans falling through (this can be really frustrating), causing delays resulting in anywhere from an additional 3-6 months+ before your house finally closes.  This causes additional stress and costs you valuable time and money.  

4). Lastly, you'll also have showings...lot's of showings.  

In Summary, there are a few situations where it can make sense to list your house with a Realtor.  If that situation does come up, then we have no problem referring you to one of our trusted partners when the time calls for it.  However, in most cases selling your home to our company is the best option.  By doing so, you'll avoid all of the above, we'll close on your timeline, always at your convenience and you'll keep more money in your pocket too! 
"Your real estate company was not the first I contacted to sell my house. Two other companies reminded me of a car sales person. Lots of hype and no real substance. Your company is truly a marvel. I have never experienced such an efficient, professional, smooth running operation. This was quite apparent at all stages of the selling process for my home. I would highly recommend your company to any new client. I deeply appreciate your concern and the time and trouble your company went to on my interests.  Sincerely, Janet Cameron."
