Frequently Asked Questions About the Cash-for-Homes Process

If I enter my information, am I obligated to sell?

Absolutely not! Our process is designed to be as stress-free for potential sellers as possible. We understand that you may not be sure about selling your home when you provide us with your information, and you are not obligated to sell to us even after we have seen your home. When we make you an offer, there are no strings attached. If you decide not to sell your home to us, you won’t owe any fees, and we won’t hassle you about your choice. 

What kinds of fees will I have to pay when selling my home?

Unlike a traditional home sale, there are no hidden fees when you choose to sell your home to us. You won’t need to pay a real estate commission, closing costs, or any other fee for the sale. The cash offer we make is what you’ll get. We will not ask you to pay for an appraisal, neither will we ask you to make or pay for any repairs to the property. 

How is the offering price for my house determined?

We determine the fair cash offer for your home based on a variety of factors. To calculate our offer, we will consider the condition and value of your property, the current state of the Columbus real estate market, the neighborhood around your home, and your goals as a seller. 

What do you do with the home after you purchase it?

We are real estate investors. When we purchase your home, we will usually repair and/or improve it. We have a team of professionals on staff to renovate properties and increase their value. After the improvements are complete, we usually sell the property to another buyer or rent it out. 

Can I sell my home if I am behind on the mortgage?

Yes, it is possible to sell your home to us even if you have fallen behind on your mortgage payments. In fact, we commonly work with buyers who are already in the midst of foreclosure or know that foreclosure is right around the corner. We will work closely with you to help you get the money you need as quickly as possible so you can pay off your mortgage and move on with your life. 

How long does it take to sell my home?

Within 24 hours of our walkthrough, we will make you a cash offer. If you decide to accept that offer, the rest of the timeline is up to you. If you want to complete the sale as quickly as possible, we can have the money in your bank account in as little as one or two weeks. However, if you want more time to find a new place or tie up other loose ends, we will schedule closing at your convenience. 

Do I have to move out right after selling my house?

Our ultimate goal as home buyers is to make this process as easy and painless for you as possible. We will work with you to determine an appropriate closing and possession date so that you are not overwhelmed with the prospect of moving out of your home quickly. 

Can I sell my house if I live out of state?

Yes, you can sell your home to us even if you don’t live in Ohio. We often work with property owners who live in another state but own property in Columbus. In this case, we will do everything we can to make the sales process as easy and convenient for you as possible. We will work with you via email and over the phone to complete the sale so you don’t have to travel back and forth.  

What types of houses do you buy?

We buy houses of just about every type in the Columbus area. At this time, we are in the market for new homes, old homes, condemned homes, homes in need of extensive repair, and even homes with mortgage delinquencies. Whatever your situation may be, there is a good chance that we will be able to buy your home. To find out whether your house qualifies for a no-obligation cash offer, reach out to us today.
