Frequently Asked Questions
Have a few questions? Most people do. So, here’s a quick collection of some of the common questions we get… with our answers next to them. If you still have a question don’t hesitate to shoot us an email through our contact page (or give us a call).
Q: Are you actually listing my house on the MLS or buying it?
A: Great question. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We buy houses that fit our buying criteria. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another home owner or keep it as a rental ourselves.
Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Great question and we’re an open book… so I’m glad you asked. Our process is rather simple. We look at the location, what repairs are needed, condition, and values of comparable houses sold in the area recently. So, we take everything into consideration… and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too.
We can close quickly, are very flexible on terms of the sale, and will buy your house in any condition. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house sold fast… let’s talk and see if we can come to a fair win-win price.

Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: There are NO fees or commissions to work with us. We’ll make you an offer, and if it’s a fit… we’ll buy your house (and we’ll often pay for the closing costs too!). No hassle. No fees. We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house to fix it up so it’s nice and pretty… market the house, 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… the responsibility is ours and you walk away without the burden of the property and it’s payments 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 buy them. The average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 5-7 months. As you know, you pay a commission as a % of the sales price when you work with a real estate agent. Usually it’s 6% of the sales price (so if it’s a $300,000 house, you’ll pay $18,000 in commissions to the buyer’s and yours agent). Agents provide a great service for those who can wait 5-7 months in many cases to sell and who have room to pay the commission on the sale. Our company actually buys houses. We don’t list houses. Since we’re actually the one buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash… we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple days (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 (which is the hard part as you know).

Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: No obligation at all. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll take a look at things, maybe call you back to find a bit more or set up a short 20-30 minutes meeting to see the condition of your property, and make you an all-cash offer that’s fair for you and fair for us. From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us… and we won’t hassle you, won’t harass you… it’s 100% your decision and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.
Q: Do you only buy properties in Phoenix?
A: Nope – we buy properties all throughout Arizona and the western US. Since we live in AZ we try and stay close to home, but we have bought properties all over the country (and Canada). If you have a property in another area that we aren’t currently working in we can refer you to local investors in that area who may be able to help if we aren’t.
