Frequently Asked Questions

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 houses you won’t buy? There is an old saying “Everything is a deal at the right price”. We consider and evaluate every property regardless of age, location, condition, etc with a goal of finding a “Win-Win” solution for all parties. Having said that not every property is a fit for us and we’re not a fit for every seller. Should we not be a fit we will try to find you an alternative solution.

Q: Where do you buy houses? We buy houses all over the Metro Atlanta including but not limited to the following counties: Cobb, Fulton, Dekalb, Cherokee and Paulding.

Q: Do you have the house inspected? Great question! We perform a home inspection on every property we purchase. When we meet with you we do an “initial inspection” of the property. Once we come to an agreement on a price we will schedule a home inspection typically within a few days but it can be longer based on your time-line.

We are NOT AFRAID of big issues. We frequently purchase homes with renovation costs of $50,000 or higher.  Sometimes the inspection reveals issues we can’t see. Examples of such things would be mold, mildew, leaking roofs, leaky plumbing, electrical problems, structural issues, substandard construction practices, etc. In those cases, we still may choose to purchase if all parties agree on how to proceed in a win/win situation, but we do reserve the right to cancel our contract if the repairs exceed our original estimates.

Q:  Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A:  Great question. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses Marietta that meet our purchasing criteria.  From there we may repair the house and resell it to another home owner or keep it as a rental ourselves. However, not every house is a good fit as an investment property and sometimes the best course of action for you to take is to list your property on the MLS. Unlike most We Buy Houses companies we are able to provide you with a solution for either scenario as our business partner Lee Hadaway is a million dollar producing Realtor® with Maximum One Greater Atlanta Realtors. If your unsure about whether or not to sell your house for Cash or to list it we can be your one stop shop for all your real estate needs.

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 home owner). 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. 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 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 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… 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 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 3 or more 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 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 to sell it to.

Q: What if there are liens or other title issues with my property? Once in awhile we buy houses that may have tax or home owners association liens attached to the property. Any liens on the property would be paid out of the proceeds from the sell of the house at closing should you choose to not satisfy the liens prior to closing. All liens would have to be cleared so that “good and marketable” title can be taken when we purchase the property. Basically, that means we’ll be able to re-sell the house in the future without any title problems.

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.
