Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: Because we aren’t real estate agents, we don’t list your home for you. We just buy houses in the San Diego area that meet our purchasing criteria and then resell them or rent them out.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: We typically buy houses at below the current market value so that we can resell them for a profit. The properties we buy are typically owned by people who aren’t looking for a huge windfall, but prefer to sell quickly, have cash in hand, avoid closing fees and agent fees, and avoid the hassle and expense of having to fix up their property before they sell. Those who get an offer from us are under no obligation to sell, but typically like that they can get out from under a less-than-ideal home ownership situation without a big hassle.
Q: How do you determine a home’s value?
A: Our experts often look at variables like a home’s location, any repairs needed, and sale price of nearby homes that sold recently. We know that property values can change fast and some areas have recovered faster than others from real estate market meltdowns in this century.
Q: Do you charge fees?
A: Because we aren’t real estate agents, there are never any fees or commissions for working with us. Our all-cash offer is the price you’ll get for selling your home to us, plus we’ll pay third-party closing costs.
Q: Why do you buy houses instead of listing them?
A: Sometimes people who have tried listing their houses through an agent will call us and express frustration that the agent gets as much as 6% of the sale price through commissions and fees without taking any of the risk, paying any of the costs like utilities and taxes, or dealing with the inconvenience of possibly having to wait several months for their homes to sell. We prefer to own the properties that we deal in because we understand that people may be selling under less-than-ideal circumstances and will walk away if it turns out that they may still have to sit on a property that they can no longer afford. Our business model and operations allow us to close more quickly on houses so that their owners can move on with their lives and no longer have to think about it. We can take on all the risks and expenses involved in repairing the property, dealing with bad tenants if necessary, and reselling the property.
Q: Is there any obligation when we call for a cash offer?
A: Our offers are 100% free with no obligation to sell. We understand that you may simply be exploring your options when you call us, so we won’t harass you to sell to us or make you sign anything before we make an offer on your home and you decide whether you want to accept it. You decide what’s right for you.
