Frequently Asked Questions
I’m sure you’ve got some questions. That’s okay; most people do. So here’s some of the questions we get asked the most, along with our answers. If you still have a question, give us a shout and we’ll be more than happy to answer it for you.
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: Great question. We’re not agents, so we will not be listing on the MLS. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses in Parkersburg that meet our purchasing criteria. We may then sell it directly to a partner investor, make repairs and then resell it, keep it as a rental, or anything else we can think of that allows us to make a profit and give you top dollar on your Parkersburg house!
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Many of the houses we purchase are below market value (we do this so we can resell it at a profit to another homeowner). We are looking to get a fair discount on a property. What we mean by this is that we calculate the time, money, and work your house will take and calculate that into our offer. It saves you from having to do it, but prevents you from getting top ARV (After Repair Values) for your house. However, in our experience, many sellers aren’t looking to get top market value if it means waiting around for months, cleaning the house, doing repairs, and dealing with all the other costs and headaches associated with selling it. What our customers love is that we close very quickly (no waiting for financing), and no time or effort or expense is required on your part of fix up the property or pay agent fees. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting money in your pocket quick and easy… let’s see if we can come to a fair win-win price. (Besides, our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you do not have to move forward with the offer we give… but it’s good to know what we’re offering!)

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Great question, and we’re an open book: The process we use is very straight forward. We take an analytical, numbers-based approach that uses tools like Zillow to see what other houses are selling for in the area, we look at the location to see what kind of area it’s in, how many repairs are needed, the ARV (After Repair Value), what it could rent for (sq footage, number of bedrooms), and the current market demand for the house. We take many pieces of information into consideration… and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too. We would be happy to walk you through the exact numbers on your house if you’d like!
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: This is the key aspect of what differentiates us from the traditional method of selling: There are NO fees or commissions when you sell your house to us. We make you an offer and if you accept, you get that full amount of money. No hassle. No fees. No closing costs. We make our money by reselling your home after cleaning it, making repairs, showing it, or renting it. The best part is that we take all the risk in this, you get paid cash in full up front and walk away. We handle all the work necessary to get it sold.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: There are a couple ways we differ from real estate agents. The first and most important thing is that we are cash buyers, and all of our partner investors are cash buyers as well. This proves to be extremely important when it comes to selling a house that is in rough shape simply because a bank is too picky to loan against that house. That means only a small percentage of buyers are able to purchase your house if it is in disrepair and we have a strong network of those buyers ready to buy your property. Secondly, unlike standard realtors, we purchase homes ourselves. We know what we are looking for and are able to make our own decisions. Realtors wait for a buyer to purchase the house where as we are actually the ones buying it. Also, with realtors you are forced to sign all sorts of paperwork and disclosures before you can sell; we buy it as is based on our own inspection without requiring any disclosure from you!
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is no obligation for you at all. We won’t be upset at all if you decline our offer, as we are not always the right fit for every seller. Our goal is to improve the community and positively affect every person we have an interaction with. So even if you do not accept our offer, we are happy to offer our time and advice in helping you find what is best for your situation.
