Frequently Asked Questions
Below, you will find the most common questions that we are asked almost everyday. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
Q : Will you be listing my home on an MLS platform?
A: No, we will not be listing your home on any MLS Platform, we are direct home buyers.
Q: How do you determine the price for my home?
A: After a discussion with one of our trusted employees to get an idea of the current condition of the home. We will analyze comparable sales in the area in congruence with local market trends. From there we will take into consideration the above mentioned variables. We will give you an offer that is negotiable after the property walk through. We try our best to come up with a fair and reasonable offer. At the end of the day, if it doesn’t work for you it doesn’t work for us.
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: There are absolutely no fees or commissions.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real Estate agents are driven by their commissions. Our business model is different. When you work with a real estate agent you must get your property ready for showings. This can come at a cost in the form of repairs and renovations. Working with an agent on average has a 6-8% commission fee. Agents will commandeer your weekends. You will have to be out of your own home for open houses and showings. If your property does not sell it can sit on the market for an average of 3 months. Again, costing you time and money.
We will do everything an agent would do in terms of title transfer, escrow, advice on market trends without charging a commission. We will provide guidance through the process of buying and selling your home for FREE.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is absolutely no obligation: ZERO. If it doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t work for us. We will not harass or push you in anyway. It is 100% your decision. We would never want anyone to feel uncomfortable. We are here to help regardless if you accept our offer or not.
Q: How do I make sense of all the paperwork, for example the escrow process without an agent?

Our staff will always be there for you. We are available to break down and answer all questions. We will assure that you understand every step of the process.
Q: How fast is fast?
A: We have closed in as little as 7 days. We give you an offer, contract signed we open escrow that day.
Q: What if I don’t want to close that fast, I need time to move out?
A: We work on your timeline. What day works best for you, works for us.
Q: Will I really get a fair offer, I heard cash buyers low ball you?
A: We give the best offer we can. If it doesn’t work for you, you are in no way obliged to take the offer. We want to be as transparent as possible through the whole process. At any time, any question we will gladly answer with 100% honesty.

Q: How do Direct Home buyers differ from iBuyers?
A: iBuyers are large tech companies that determine the price of your house through an algorithm. iBuyers remove any personable touch from the real estate transaction. You know when you call CVS and you spend 10 minutes screaming into the phone “Person, person I want to talk to a person!” That is what it is like to deal with an iBuyer. If something goes wrong and you need a couple days extra to pack your things past the closing date; too bad. iBuyers, unlike direct home buyers as ourselves, charge an even higher service fee than agents, averaging around; we have even heard they can be as high as . iBuyers are similar to our business in several ways but the number one reason that sets us apart from our competitors is our people. We care and we will be there for you and help you every step of the way.
