Frequently Asked Questions

Maybe you have a few questions. That’s okay; most people do. Here is 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 anytime. We would be happy to answer it for you.

Q: What does it mean when investors say they “buy houses for cash”?
A: When investors say they buy houses for cash, it means they have the financial resources to purchase a property outright, without the need for financing from a bank or mortgage lender. This allows for a quicker and more streamlined buying process.

Q: Why do investors prefer to buy houses for cash?
A: Investors often prefer to buy houses for cash because it allows them to make quick purchases, which can be advantageous in competitive real estate markets. Additionally, buying for cash can provide leverage in negotiations and may result in a lower purchase price.

Q: Do I need to make any repairs or improvements to my house before selling to an investor?
A: One of the benefits of selling to a cash buyer is that they typically purchase properties as-is. This means you do not need to make any repairs or improvements to your house before selling. Cash buyers are often willing to purchase properties in any condition.

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similarly, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.

Q: How quickly can I expect to close when selling to a cash buyer?
A: The timeline for closing when selling to a cash buyer can vary depending on the buyer and the specifics of the transaction. However, cash purchases can often be completed more quickly than traditional sales, with some transactions closing in as little as a few days.

Q: Will I receive a fair offer when selling to a cash buyer?
A: Cash buyers aim to provide fair offers based on the current market value of your property and the specifics of your situation. It’s always a good idea to get offers from multiple buyers to ensure you are receiving a fair price for your home.

Q: Are there any fees or commissions when selling to a cash buyer?
A: In most cases, there are no fees or commissions when selling to a cash buyer. Cash buyers typically cover all closing costs, making the selling process more straightforward and transparent for sellers.

Q: Can I sell my house to a cash buyer if it is currently rented out to tenants?
A: Yes, cash buyers are often willing to purchase properties that are currently rented out to tenants. However, it’s important to discuss the specifics of your situation with the buyer to ensure a smooth transition for your tenants.
