Are there any fees associated with selling my house to Austin All Cash Home Buyers?
No! We will make you an offer without any real estate agent fees or commissions (typically 6% of the sales price).
What about closing costs?
Our offer also includes taking care of all standard closing costs, saving you about 1%-2% of the sales price.
How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
Great question, and we’re always transparent on how we determine our best and fairest price: Our process is very simple. We look at the location of the property, taking into consideration recent comparable sales, then look at the current condition of the property, and what repairs are needed. Once we have this information we come up with our best & highest offer.
How are you different from a realtor?
For a fee that is typically 3%-6% of the sales price, realtors list properties in the hope that someone will buy them (so if it’s a $300,000 house, you’ll ordinarily pay between $9,000 –$18,000 in commissions to a realtor). The average time to sell a property through listing is on the rise, with many markets taking 4-5 months or more. With a realtor, as well as the fees and the time to sell, you also need to prepare your house for listing and also be ready to show your property to prospective buyers. With us, we are the buyer – so there are no realtor fees, no waiting, no contingencies, and no showings.
If it’s a fair price, how do you make money?
We make our living by taking the risk to buy the house with our own cash, repair & improve the house, force appreciation into it, and then finally market it ourselves to find a buyer (which is the hard part in this current market).
Are you a wholesaler?
We are not. A wholesaler is someone who markets themselves as a ‘cash buyer’ but has no intention of buying your property with their cash. Rather they plan on ‘flipping’ the purchase contract they have signed with you, to a true cash buyer (like us). They make money from being middle-man. Wholesalers generally don’t have the capital or the construction capabilities to buy & fix up houses, and you may come into contact with wholesalers who aren’t even located
in Austin, let alone Texas. So if a wholesaler is inexperienced, or generally unable to effectively broker an off-market deal between the seller and a new buyer, the whole deal can fall over (usually at the last minute) causing untold headaches and angst for the seller. Call us if you have more questions about the pros and cons of working with wholesalers
I need to sell my house fast. How quickly can you close?
It depends on your situation, but typically we can close within 7 to 14 days, we have closed in as little as 3.
I’m not in a rush, can I pick a later closing date?
Yes, you pick a closing date that works for you and can go as far out as 30 to 45 days. We have closed later than this too!
I need some extra time in the property, can you help me with that?
Yes, we can offer up to 30 days rent free inside the property after closing.
What if my house needs repairs?
We will purchase as-is, in any condition, so there is no need to make any repairs.
I’m behind on my loan. Do I need to make another payment?
No. We regularly purchase homes that are behind in payments, and facing foreclosure.
Can I stop or avoid foreclosure by selling my house?
Yes, in many cases. When you sell your house it stops foreclosure and may help save your credit.
Can you buy my house if it’s vacant?
Yes, the home can be in any condition and it does not matter if you occupy it, have a renter in the home, or if it is vacant.
Can you buy my house if I have a problem tenant in there now?
Yes. We are experienced in dealing with problem tenants.
My house is presently listed for sale with a real estate agent. Can you still buy my house?
Yes. You’ll likely still need to pay your agent’s commission, but we can still purchase your home.
If I have moved out of the area do I have to come back into town for a closing?
No, we can arrange for a mobile notary in most places throughout the country so you don’t need to worry about coming back for closing.
Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
There is absolutely zero obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll take a look at things, maybe set up a call with you to find out a bit more 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… and we won’t hassle you, won’t harass you… it’s 100% your decision.
