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 aren’t realtors, and as such, we don’t list homes the way realtors do. We are professional cash home buyers and we purchase homes in Rochester and the surrounding NY areas. So long as a home meets our criteria, we can either buy it, restore it, and resell it, or keep it as a rental unit.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: When we decide what sort of offer we’re going to make on a property, we do the best we can to ensure a fair deal for all parties involved. In our line of work, most homeowners who reach out to us do not expect to make a massive profit on their homes. They’re looking for a fast, easy way to unload a property they don’t want to be hassled with.
We provide this very solution. We do not require any repairs to be made, nor do we ask for any fees or commissions. We come up with fair cash offers, and homeowners are under no obligation to work with us after requesting an offer. We simply want to present an easy solution.

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: The way we work is quite straightforward. We take a look at the property’s location, assess the repairs that are needed, the property’s current condition, and the price that comparable homes in the area have sold for. With this information, we work to determine how much it will cost to repair the home and what sale price we can reach after renovation. From there, we can develop a fair cash offer that benefits both us and the home-sellers we work with.
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: These details are what make us a unique option compared to the traditional approach. When you choose to work with us, there are no commissions or selling fees involved. We will make you a fair offer, and if you accept, we will pay you cash for your home. There is no financial investment on your part, no hassles, and no obligations. We make our profits after we pay for repairs and resell the property.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: A realtor’s job involves listing properties so that they can find a buyer for a home-selling client. The realtor shows the home to interested parties and if the property sells, the realtor takes a percentage of the sale price as payment. Their commission is usually 3-6% of the sale price.
They’re a great option for homeowners who have time to wait several months for a sale to go through. They’re fantastic for people who are willing to give up a portion of their sale price and cover other miscellaneous fees.
For people who are in a hurry to sell, or individuals who cannot afford to invest in their home’s sale (or just don’t want to), a professional home buyer is the way to go. We are not realtors. We buy houses and because we don’t have to deal with financing institutions, we can ensure that the process is quick, easy, and FREE for the seller.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: You are not at all obligated to work with us. We will consider the information you present about your property, possibly reach out for more information, then make you a fair cash offer. It’s 100% up to you to decide whether our offer works for you. If you decide to go another route, we will not hassle you to reconsider. We simply want to present you with a simple option.
