Our top 10 most asked questions

What Is The Fastest Way To Sell A House?

Selling to a cash home buyer will be the fastest but it’s not right for everyone. So we make sure that you know what you’re giving up by selling fast to us when you do.

Can I Really Sell My House In 7 Days?

It’s very possible. The one thing we make sure to stress is that every situation is different and in the ideal situation, we can do it even quicker. The average time it takes to sell your house can vary and ultimately, we make sure it works best for you.

How Does Your Process Work?

It’s a simple, 3 step process… Are you ready?

1. Call us or submit your form letting us know you want to sell your house. You’ll generally answer some basic questions about the property so we can start getting started on collecting the data we need to make an offer.
2. We complete our research on the property to determine a fair cash offer. We generally like to see the property to ensure our offer is accurate and won’t need to be renegotiated. If you want an offer before we see it, we will reserve the right to inspect it and renegotiate if needed.
3. We set closing for what’s best for you and we buy your property putting all that cash in your pocket.

That’s it!

Is Now A Good Time To Sell My House In Chicago?

Now is a great time to sell your house in Chicago. The big thing is usually finding the right way to sell your house in Chicago. That’s where we can help because we always make sure we’re doing what’s right for you.

Do You Pay Fair Prices For My Property?

We do our best to always pay a fair price for any house. We are not here to lowball offers to sellers. We want homeowners to feel good about our cash offer and all of the hassle-free benefits that come with it, such as no hidden fees or repairs.

Recognize though that there is a difference between a fair price and “market value.” If the house is in need of updates or repairs, it will be taken into consideration when we make our offer. Sometimes we are able to use “creative financing” to curate an offer that works better for both parties. Every time we make an offer we present all possible opportunities to the seller.

Do you buy anything other than houses?

The most common thing we buy is houses. We will also buy townhouses, condos, multifamily, and even land on a case-by-case basis. It all depends on the situation and the wants and needs of the seller and how we’re able to help them.

No matter the situation, we always aim to help you out or at least point you in the right direction.

Will you be listing my house on the MLS or the market?

The short answer, no.

As investors, we buy your house right away with cash or find other buyers that do the same. After rehab, we will put the house back on the market and sell it for a profit. That’s how we make our money. When you sell to us, we cover inspection and closing costs, charge no commission, and pay you in cash. We eliminate the need for an agent and the extra expenses that it accrues while you get to enjoy a much quicker sale and less hassle.

If we determine that your situation is better suited for a real estate agent, we will gladly refer you to one we trust in our market.

Should I list my house with an agent?

We just don’t know… yet!

Each scenario is different and we wouldn’t have a clear picture until we looked at the unique needs of the house, your needs, expectations, and timeline. After we take all that into consideration, we can give you our best advice. If it’s listing with an agent, we can even refer you to a top agent we trust.

Is there any obligation once I submit my info?

There are never any obligations!

We know there are plenty of options. So to differentiate ourselves, we make everything as transparent as possible while you never pay any hidden fees or commissions. You literally have nothing to lose.

Do I need to make any repairs or clean up to sell to you?

Nope! That’s one of the best parts of selling to use. You never have to worry about repairs or doing anything else to the property. Leave behind anything unwanted and we’ll take care of it.
