Frequently Asked Questions
You probably have a few questions on your mind. That’s normal.
Below are a collection of some of the frequent questions people ask us followed by our answers.
If you have a different question, don’t hesitate to contact us (or give us a call) and we’ll be happy to answer it for you.
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: We’re not agents who try to list houses. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses in California that meet our purchasing criteria. Depending on the property we may repair the house and resell it to another home owner or keep it as a rental ourselves.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Of course we do. If we did not, then no one would sell us their house. Many of the houses we purchase are below market value because they require repairs, updating, or remodeling. Our crews take care of all that work so you do not have to do it or pay a contractor to do it. That way you can sell your house faster even when it needs repairs. If you are looking for a fast and smooth transaction that does not drag on for countless months, then we are probably a great fit.
If you want a reasonable offer today instead of a little more 9 months from now, then call us. We want to give you an offer that works for you right now.

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Our process is very straightforward. We look at the location of the property, what repairs or remodeling is required, the present condition of the property, and values of comparable houses recently sold nearby. As you know, house values have taken a huge hit in the last 5 years and many areas still haven’t seen prices come back up. 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: Absolutely not. This is how we differ from the traditional method of selling your house. You will not have any fees or commissions when you sell your house to us. We’ll make you an offer. And if it’s a good fit for you, then we’ll buy your house (and we’ll often pay for the closing costs too!). No hassle. No fees. No waiting months. 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. Then 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 come along and buy them. Agents usually charge you a percentage of the sales price. That can run into the thousands of dollars real fast. And the average time it takes an agent to sell a property in many markets is 6-12 months. Agents provide a great service for those that can wait 6-12 months to sell and who don’t mind giving up some of that sale price to pay the commissions.
But we’re very different. We do not want to list your home. We want to buy your home directly. 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 can pay with all cash and we can make a decision to buy your house within a 48 hours (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.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: You will be under no obligation at all. We want you to make a decision that works for you. We hope that our offer will work best for both you and us. That’s why we work at creating an offer that is fair and easy to understand.
After we present you with our offer, it’s 100% your decision. We do not hassle people or pressure people. We want you to decide what’s best for you. We will answer any questions you have at any time because we are easy to talk to.
