Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any obligation?

Nope! We are more than happy to offer your a free, no obligation consultation and/or offer on your property. We legitimately try and help people facing complicated real estate problems, and we honestly just love talking about real estate. So, we are more than happy to talk with you about your situation and see if we can offer any solutions to your problems. If we can’t help, then we are more than happy to direct you to someone who might be able to help.

How does the process work?

  1. Give us a call or use the contact form on our website and tell us about your property and situation
  2. We will call you back and provide you with a free, no obligation consultation. If we seem like we will be a good fit for each other then we will schedule a time to view your home.
  3. Once we’ve verified the condition of the property, we will make you a free, confidential, and no obligation offer.
  4. If you accept our offer we will handle the entire transaction from there.
  5. We send the needed documents to our real estate attorney who will begin the title search. We will pay for all the attorney fees. We will coordinate the sale and all you need to do is show up on the day of closing.
  6. You show up on a day that is convenient for you once our attorney has prepared all the documents. Then you sign some papers and get your check.

What if I have a lien or judgement that need to be paid?

If you have any liens or judgement on your house just let us know. Liens or judgement won’t necessarily prevent us from being able to make an offer on your home. We will eventually find out about them when we do a title search on the property, but it is much easier to work out a solution when we have all the facts from the beginning. We will work with you to find a solution that fits your situation.

When you say "cash offer", will you really give me cash?

It’s generally not feasible for us to purchase a property in literal cash. While not illegal, carrying around a briefcase full of money is not an ideal way for us to conduct business. A cash offer typically means we are offering to buy the house outright without a lender being involved. As for payment, you will have the option of receiving a check from the closing attorney at closing or have the funds wired to your bank account.

Are there any fees involved?

We do not charge any fees or commissions when we purchase a property from you. We pay for all of the closing costs (attorney fees, title search, transfer tax). The only portion of the sale you are responsible for are your portion of the property taxes for the year. For instance, if your property taxes are $1200 for the year and we buy the house in April then you will be responsible for paying $400 of the property taxes because you owned the house for those four months out of the year.

Don't you just expect me to "give away" my house? Won't you just give me a really low offer?

We always try and offer you the most money we can for your property given your situation, market conditions, and condition of property. We truly do try and help homeowners who are facing complicated and dire real estate issues, and there are a number of ways we can do that including offering a simple and expedited transaction. At the end of the day though, we are running a business and need to account for expenses while making a reasonable profit. Unlike homeowners who purchase property live in, when we purchase a house we then need to invest money into the house to either resell the property, rent the property out, or sell that house to another investor. We base our offers on calculated expenses and risks associated with these activities.

Will you be the only actually buying my house?

Usually. It depends on the best fit we find for your property. We may purchase the property ourselves or we may work with one of our partner investors who will be the one taking title to the property.

What areas do you work?

We work in counties west of Atlanta, specifically Douglas, Carroll, Paulding, and Haralson Counties. These counties encompass a number of cities, but we specialize in Dougalsville, Villa Rica, Lithia Springs, Winston, Hiram, Powder Springs, and Dallas. However, if you live outside these areas and would like to see if we can still help you, just give us a call or submit an offer request!

My house is listed with an agent, will you buy it?

Typically, no. Unless your house is priced accordingly to condition and time required to make repairs, houses listed on the open market rarely meet our buying criteria. For houses we purchase, we need to be able to add value to the property for it to make sense for us as investors. If the house is already priced at a market price without any way for us to improve on the property then it usually wouldn’t be a wise business decision to purchase your home.
