Frequently Asked Questions
Maybe you have a few questions. That’s okay; most people do. So here’s a quick collection of some of the questions people ask us… along with our answers. If you still have a question, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll be 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, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses in Philadelphia that meet our purchasing criteria. From there we will likely repair it and either keep it in our rental portfolio or resell it to another home owner.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Many of the houses we purchase are below market value because they are in need of repair or have other extenuating circumstances (e.g., delinquent taxes, behind on mortgage payments, problem tenants, etc). We are looking to get a fair, below market value discount on a property because we assume the risk associated with these circumstances. In our experience, many sellers appreciate that we can offer cash, we close very quickly (no waiting for financing), and no time, effort or expense is required on their part to fix up the property or pay agent fees. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house sold fast… let’s see if we can come to a fair win-win price.

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Great question. Our process is very straightforward. We look at the location of the property, the current condition of the property, what repairs are needed, and the value of comparable houses rented or sold in the area recently. We take a few other factors into consideration… and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too.
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: This is what makes us stand out from the traditional method of selling your house: There are NO fees or commissions when you sell your house to us. We’ll make you an offer, and if you tell us it’s a fit for you, then 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 (if any) and either rent it or sell it. We’re taking on all of the risk when we buy your house….you get to walk away with cash in your pocket and without the burden of the property on your shoulders.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: We’re very different. We are not real estate agents, we are a real estate investment company and professional home buyers. Real estate agents list properties in the hopes that someone will buy them. The agent shows the properties to prospective buyers and then takes a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 3-6% of the sale price of your house (so if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay between $3,000 – $6,000 in commissions to an agent). Agents provide a great service for those that can afford to wait to sell and who don’t mind giving up some of their sales proceeds to pay for repairs/commissions. But that’s where we’re different: 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 either rent it or find a buyer (which is the hard part in this market).
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is absolutely zero obligation for you. Once you tell us about your property, we’ll take a look at things, maybe set up a call with you to find out a bit more, 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 or harass you… it’s 100% your decision and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.
