Q:  Is there any obligation when receiving an offer from IWillBuyHouse.Com? 

A: Of course not! Our goal is to help homeowners make smart decisions when it is time to sell. We will provide you with information about ALL of your selling options, so you can decide what is right for you. We will make you an offer, but only when we are certain selling directly will benefit you. We are not into high-pressure sales and we will not hassle you in any way regarding your decision about how to sell your house.

Q:  What can I expect as far as commissions and fees when I sell my house directly?

A: Absolutely nothing. This is why selling houses directly has become increasingly popular. We charge zero commissions because we are a direct buyer. We will pick up all costs associated with the sale and the property closing. When you receive an offer from our team, that is exactly what you will walk away with! You do not have to worry about any out of pocket expenses or hidden fees. To be candid, we make our profit after we renovate and repair the house. We don’t always see a profit, but we do enjoy restoring homes for the betterment of the communities we serve.

Q:  What are the advantages of selling your house for cash?

A: Selling your house to our team offers a number of great benefits. First of all, we buy houses as-is so you don’t have to spend time and money making repairs to the house. You won’t have to worry about contingency clauses causing the sale to fall through at the last minute. We do not charge commissions and there are never any hidden fees. Best of all, you won’t have to deal with property showings or cleaning. We handle everything so you can collect your cash and walk away. Keep in mind that not all home buyers are the same. Make sure you know what is included before signing a contract.

Q:  What are the disadvantages of selling your house to a cash buyer?

A: The only real downside to a direct sale is that you may not get full retail price for your house in . That said, the price difference is often nullified once all of the expenses are factored in.

If you want to sell your house for top dollar, we recommend you fix up the house with brand new appliances, flooring, roof, etc. Then you should stage the property and get a professional photographer to take the photos. You’ll need to list the house with the top real estate agent, and market the heck out of the property. There will likely be several open houses and a number of people who will want to come to see the home in person. Once you have found a qualified buyer, you will need to subtract the closing costs, the agent commission, and your time and effort. In fact, this is typically what we do after we buy a house.

Q:  What makes your process different from working with a real estate agent?

A: We are not charging you a commission to sell your house in [amrket_city]. We are direct buyers and we are able to close right now! Agents have you sign a listing agreement with them, then they attempt to sell your house to a third party individual in exchange for a commission. (Typically around 6%.) There are no guarantees that the property will sell for your asking price or in a specific timeframe. In many US markets, the average time to sell is 6-12 months. That can be a long time of waiting and paying bills on a house you don’t want to own. Utilities, taxes, and insurance can add up fast.  Working with [compant] will allow you to close quickly, ending your financial burdens almost immediately. If you have time and don’t mind paying out for the costs (commissions, listing, cleaning, repairs, staging, etc) then a listing can be a great solution! If you would rather the sale be over and done with, without facing unknown repairs costs, and still putting a great cash amount in your pocket, then a direct sale might be the better choice!

Q:  Will you be listing my house or buying it directly?

A:   We are buying homes all over the country that meet our buying criteria. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another homeowner or keep it as a rental for ourselves.

Q:  Do you pay fair prices for houses?

A:  Of course! While it may not be market value, you will be getting a lightning-fast close, zero fees, zero commissions no waiting, no stress, and you will save money on utilities, insurance, and taxes by selling it sooner rather than later!  Many people fare better financially when choosing to sell their houses directly to iwillbuyhouse.com! There is never any obligation with our offers, so find out what we can offer you today!

Q:  How do you determine how much you can offer?

A:  Our offer process is extremely transparent and we are happy to answer any questions you have about the selling process. First, we look at the location of the property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of your house, and the values of recent sales in your neighborhood. We take all of this into consideration… and come up with a fair price that will work for everyone!
