Take a look at the questions and answers below. We want you to be informed so you can make the best decisions for you and your family. If you still have a question, please don’t hesitate to contact us by email or by phone…and we’ll be happy to answer it for you.
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: We are not agents, and we don’t list houses as traditional realtors do. We are professional home buyers. We buy houses in Rochester and surrounding areas that meet our certain criteria. After we buy the property, we may repair the house and resell it to another homeowner or keep it as a rental ourselves.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: We are looking to get a fair discount on a property when we decide how much we’re going to offer. However, in our experience, many sellers aren’t necessarily expecting a large “windfall” on the property. Rather, they appreciate that we can offer cash, we close very quickly, and no expense is required on the owners part of fix up the property. Plus, you don’t have to pay fees or commissions. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house sold fast, we can come up with a fair, win-win offer. Besides, our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you do not have to move forward if you don’t like our offer.

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Our process is very straightforward. We look at the location of the property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the property, and the values of comparable houses sold in the area recently. It is important for us to calculate the cost of repairing and renovating the property and what we think we can sell your property for after we’ve fixed it up. We take many pieces of information 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 it’s a fit then we’ll buy your house with cash. No hassle. No fees. We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house (if any) and sell it for a profit.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them. The agent shows the property to prospective buyers if there are any, 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. Agents provide a great service for those that can wait months to sell and who don’t mind giving up some of that sale price to pay for the commissions. We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. Our company actually buys houses, and 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 of days.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is absolutely zero obligation for you. Once you tell us a little about your property, we’ll crunch the numbers, maybe set up a call with you to find out more information, 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. We won’t hassle you, we won’t harass you… it’s 100% your decision and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.
