Frequently Asked Questions About Selling Your Home
You probably have a few questions (like most people). We love answering questions because it shows whether we can help you or not.
We get asked lot of questions. So we’ve gathered the most common questions together and written out our answers below. These questions and answers help with most of the issues people are thinking about. But if you have a question that is not listed, then you should call or email us (using our form).
We answer every question that people ask us. Because we want you to feel totally comfortable with selling your house to us.
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: We will NOT list your house. We are not a real estate brokerage. We do not list houses. We are professional house buyers. We buy homes in the Greater Baltimore Metro Area that meet our buying criteria.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Yes, we pay fair prices for real estate. If we did not pay fair prices, then people would not sell us their property. However, we cannot pay more than a house is really worth. If you have a house that looks like it is from the Brady Bunch era, then it will probably require a lot of updating. And that costs money. So we would not be able to pay you top dollar for a house that needs thousands of dollars of work. But we still buy those types of houses. We just have to pay a reasonable price.
We give people fair offers. And we can close in a matter of days, not the typical months like other closings. We try our best to create an offer that will work for you. Of course, you will not be obligated to accept our offer. But at least you’ll find out how much you can immediately sell your house for without waiting months to see if another buyer comes along.

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: You’ll find out that we are very straightforward. We are open about how we do business. And we don’t mind explaining our buying process.
Before we give you an offer, we have to look at certain facts. Where is the property located? What have other houses been selling for recently in that neighborhood? What repairs are needed? What’s the current condition of the property?
After we get answers to those questions, we can give you a fair and reasonable offer to buy your house. We try our best to craft an offer that will help get you where you want to be.
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: Absolutely Not. We will never ask you to pay any fees or commissions. And that makes us stand out from the traditional method of selling a house. Our customers have told us that not charging fees or commissions was refreshing and it made them feel more relaxed about doing business with us.
So we’ll make you a fair offer, and hopefully you’ll decide that our offer will work for you and your family. Then we often pay the closing costs too. We have tried to create a closing with no hassles, no surprise fees, and no long waits. We want you to walk away from the closing with the burden on your shoulders lifted. That’s our goal.
Q: How are you different from a real estate brokerage?
A: Real estate brokerages list properties and hope that someone comes along and buys it sooner or later. They ask homeowners to sign a 6-12 month listing agreement so you cannot use any other real estate brokerage during those months. And they typically charge you a 6% commission on the final sales price of the property. That can easily add up to thousands or tens of thousands of dollars.
We are totally different. We never charge commissions or fees. We are not a real estate brokerage. We do not list houses…ever. We are a local company that buys real estate directly from homeowners. So we are the actual buyer that you are hoping to get an offer from.
We do not use banks or mortgage companies because they take too long. Most of our customers want to sell their home sooner rather than later. So we have cash ready and waiting for us to find another house to buy. Having our own cash ready means that we can close very quickly. And that means you get your house sold faster.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: No. You’ll be under no obligation.
When you give us some info about your property, it allows us to research how much we can pay you for your property. Before we give you an offer, we have to figure out the top dollar we can reasonably give you for your property.
After we give you our offer, you will still be under no obligation to accept it. We will answer any questions that you have about our offer and the house selling process. Then we’ll let you decide if our offer works for you and your family. We will not hassle you or pressure you. It’s 100% your decision.
