2. What do you do?
We’re professional home buyers, and We Buy Houses Here in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. No matter what the condition of the home or where it’s located, we’ll buy it for a fair price! Simply put, we buy houses, fix them up, then sell them to new homeowners!
We offer a fast closing, a straightforward transaction, and we pay for all closing costs! Plus, we’ll handle everything for you when you sell your house to us. We buy houses as-is, in any condition, and despite whatever reason, you might be selling for!
3. Is selling fast for cash right for me?
Selling your house on the market can be a whole bucketload of unnecessary stress and headaches. Even if you aren’t desperate or in a hurry to sell, selling for cash might just be what you need!
Whether you’re pressed for time or not, if you simply don’t want to go through the many hassles of selling your home on the market, we’ll help you sell your house with ease, and quickly, too!
4. Will you be listing my house?
The simple answer is, no. We’re not real estate agents, we’re direct home buyers. We won’t be listing your house on the MLS, we’ll actually be buying it from you. That means after we buy your house, you can be rid of any obligation to it, and you can move on with your life!
5. How are you different from realtors?
Realtors will list your house on the MLS and hope and wait that a buyer will be interested in it. On the other hand, as direct home buyers, we’ll be the ones actually buying your house from you. You won’t need to clean or make repairs either, because we buy houses as-is!
This eliminates any waiting needed and can make for a fast, hassle-free cash sale. By not having to wait for a buyer, cleaning, or making any repairs, you can have the cash in hand within the week if you choose to!
6. Should I list my house instead?
That depends on your current situation and circumstances. Everyone’s circumstances are different, so we can’t answer that without knowing the specifics of your situation.
7. How does it work?
Take a look at How We Buy Houses, and you’ll know our whole process! The gist of it is — 1. You fill out our form, 2. We’ll do a quick walk-through or a virtual tour with you, and 3. We’ll give you our fair no-obligation cash offer! That’s it — it’s as simple as that!
If you accept our offer, we’ll take care of everything from there and let you know everything that you need to know regarding your property and the sale! Of course, we’ll be upfront about everything because trust is important to us!
8. How much is your fee?
You might not believe us when we say this, but we have no fees! Unlike real estate agents who typically earn 3-6% of the sale price in commissions, you don’t need to pay us any fees! We’ll even pay all closing costs.
Why? Well, we make our money after we buy your house. We buy it, fix it up, and take the risk of whether or not we can sell it at a profit. We can also decide to keep it as a rental, but once you’ve sold the house, you’ve got no obligation to it even if we can’t sell it for a profit!
9. Do I need to clean before I move out?
Absolutely not! You can just take everything that you need and leave the rest — it doesn’t matter if the house isn’t spotless when we buy it! Whatever you leave behind, we’ll take care of it. So save yourself the trouble of cleaning your entire house!
10. My house is in bad shape, will you still buy it?
Of course! And you don’t even need to make any repairs! Since we buy houses as-is in whatever condition they’re in, you don’t have to spend any time or money on expensive and time-consuming repairs! Even if your house is in bad condition, we’ll buy it for a fair price!
11. I'm behind in my loan. Do I need to make another payment?
It depends on how far behind you are. Our team will work with you and your bank to ensure the process moves forward smoothly.
12. I'm in foreclosure. Are you still interested?
Absolutely! We purchase homes that are in the foreclosure process all the time. Our team will work directly with your bank in order to complete the sale.
13. If I have moved out of the area do I have to come back into town for a closing?
Nope! You can complete your end of the closing locally and your check can be mailed or deposited directly into your account.
14. How are you different from a real estate agent?
Going through us is a much quicker and simpler process than listing with a real estate agent. You’ll avoid open houses, inspectors and appraisals when you work with us. You also avoid having to make any repairs or cleaning prior to closing.
15. I owe more than my house is worth. Can you help me?
Yes! We pride ourselves on being able to create unique solutions to help you get the most value for your home as possible.
16. Are there any obligations after I fill in your form?
None! Our offers are free and you have no obligation to accept them. If you decide that our offer isn’t going to cut it for you, you can choose to say no to our offer, at no cost to you! But if you do decide to accept our offer, then great! We’ll go forward with the deal and you can have the cash in hand within the week!
17. Do you pay fair prices for properties?
Of course! We are always honest and fair, and we value trust. The first step to earning your trust is to show you that we’ll never low-ball you! We definitely pay fair prices, but a fair price does not mean market value. If the house needs a lot of repairs, we take the market value and subtract how much the repairs needed will cost. That’s what fair price means!
You can learn our formula here and find out how our whole process works! We always do our own research and thorough market analysis to make sure that you get the best fair price for your house that we can give!
18. How fast can we close?
We buy houses with our own cash, which means that we can close within 48 hours of presenting you with an offer. Generally we are able to close in 10-14 days. However, we like to work on your timeline. We can always work towards a quicker close if possible, but we can also push the closing date back as well. Whether it’s 30, 60, or 90 days later, we will always work with you and try to be as flexible as possible.
19. What will you do with my house after you buy it?
We buy houses in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, fix them up and sell them to new homeowners. We take responsibility for the house once we buy it. We take the risk of whether or not we can sell it at a profit when we buy it from you. Whether or not we are able to, you can move on with your life once we’ve bought it from you!
20. How do I get started and get my free no-risk cash offer?
That’s simple! All you need to do is fill our the form below or any form on our website. We’ll get back to you for a quick walk-through. We can give you our fair cash offer within the day — as soon as we complete our thorough market analysis on your home! From there, if you like the offer and want to work together, we prepare the necessary documents and you pick the closing date.
