Frequently Asked Questions About Selling A House – Unwanted Property/Vacant House!

Maybe you have a few questions about selling a house. That’s okay; most people do. So here’s a quick collection of some of the questions people ask us, along with our answers. Of course, if you still have a question about an unwanted property or a vacant house, don’t hesitate to contact us (or give us a call), and we’ll be happy to answer it for you.

Q:  Will you be listing my house on the MLS or buying it?
A:  Great question. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses Philadelphia that meet our purchasing criteria. From there, 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:  Many of the houses we purchase are below market value (we do this to resell it at a profit to another homeowner). We are looking to get a fair discount on a property. However, in our experience, many sellers aren’t necessarily expecting a large “windfall” on the property but rather appreciate that we can offer cash, we close very quickly (no waiting for financing), and no time or effort, or expense is required on your part of fix up the property or pay agent fees. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house sold fast, let’s see if we can come to a fair win-win price. (Besides, our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you do not have to move forward with the offer we give, but it’s good to know what we’re offering when you’re selling a house)

Q:  How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A:  Great question, and we’re an open book: Our process is very straightforward. We look at the location of the property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the unwanted property, and the values of comparable houses sold in the area recently. As you know, house values have taken a massive hit in the last five years, and most areas still haven’t seen prices come back up. So we consider many pieces of information… & come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too when it comes to selling a house.

Q:  Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: This is what makes us stand out from the traditional selling method: 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 home (and we’ll often pay for the closing costs, too!). No hassle. No fees. We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house (if any) and sell it for a profit (we’re taking risks here on whether we can sell it for a profit or not, once we buy the house from you, the responsibility is ours, and you walk away without the burden of the property and its payments.

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 unwanted property to prospective buyers if there are any (the average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 6-12 months) and then takes a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer. Often, the agent’s commission is 3-6% of the sale price when selling a house (so if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay between $3,000 – $6,000 in commissions to an agent). Agents provide an excellent service for those that can wait 6-12 months to sell and who don’t mind giving up some of that sale price to pay for the commissions on the unwanted property. But that’s where we’re different: We’re not agents; we’re home buyers. Our company buys houses. We don’t list places. Since we’re the ones buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash, we can decide to buy your home within a couple of days (sometimes the same day). Again, we make our living by taking the risk to buy the house with our cash, repair the home, and market it ourselves to find a buyer (which is the hard part in this market).

Q:  Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is zero obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your unwanted 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 it’ll be worth selling a house to us, and we won’t hassle you, won’t harass you, we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.

When It’s Time To Sell A Vacant House? Tips When Selling An Empty House!

Is it time to sell a vacant house? Think to your self is it costing me money sitting on it? Well, it is for sure; you pay taxes on it and everything else you purchased. Especially that unwanted property! The fact of the matter is as long as that home sits there, you become a potential victim of vandals. Wildlife eventually becomes a factor as well, and no one wants trees growing through the roof; trust me, we’ve seen it before. Even if the home doesn’t bother you, it might affect some of the neighbors in the area. Every township and city has its code enforcement type that drives around looking for places to slap a big hefty ticket for overgrown weeds. You can always contact Buying Property 215 & let us take that property off your hands. Make sure you know when it’s time to sell a vacant house & how simple it is when you’re selling an empty house.

Tips When Selling An Empty House

Do you own a vacant property? If you have a home, sit there. It may be time to consider selling an empty house. There are currently about 17,019,726 homes just sitting there vacant in the united states. There are all most 700,000 homes in the city of Philadelphia. We can not control what happens to us in life. If we lose our job, looses a loved one, or our home becomes too much to maintain. No matter what it is, that may cause a house to deteriorate. Buying Property 215 has seen it all when it comes time to sell an empty home. How we recommend getting rid of that unwanted property. First, you must find the right person to purchase it. If the house requires too many repairs, you will not be heading to an agent to get the job done. The second is, are you the only owner? Believe it or not, but a lot of the time, a home sits vacant because the property was a parent’s home who had more than one child; it was never clear who the home was left to when they were deceased. The third & final thing to keep in mind is knowing what potential your property may have after being rehabbed. That way, in case you plan to fix it up yourself.
