Frequently Asked Questions
Here is a quick collection of some of the most frequently asked questions people have for us, along with our answers. Once you read through this list, don’t hesitate to contact us or give us a call at 612-930-2000. We would love to chat about our process for buying Minnesota area homes for a fair cash price.
Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Great question and our process is straightforward. We look at the location of the house, what repairs and upgrades are needed, the current condition of the property, and the values of comparable houses sold in the neighborhood recently. We use all of this information to come up with a fair price that works for us and hopefully works for you, too!
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: This is where we stand out from a traditional real estate agent. There are NO fees, commissions, or closing costs when you sell your house to us! We make you an offer and – if it’s a fit – we buy your house directly from you. We make a profit after we pay for repairs and upgrades and sell it to another homeowner. We assume all of the risks once we buy the house from you. The responsibility is ours and you walk away without the burden of the property and its payments, as well as cash in your hand from the sale.
DOWNLOAD our free guide that walks you through the Pros and Cons (plus the cost and timeline) of selling your house to a real estate investor. You’ll also learn the pros, cons, and costs of the other two alternatives – listing with an agent or selling the house yourself (FSBO).
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 properties to prospective buyers and then takes a percentage of the sale price once they find a buyer. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 5 to 7% of the sale price of your house (so if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay between $5,000 – $7,000 in commissions to an agent).
Agents provide a great service for those that can wait the months it takes to sell a house or property in MN. But that’s where we’re different! We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. Our company buys houses directly from Minnesota area homeowners. Since we are buying the house directly from you using our own cash, we can make a decision to buy within a couple of days – and sometimes even the same day. We make our living by taking the risk to buy the house with our own cash, repair it, and then market it ourselves to find the right buyer.
Q: Do you pay the market price for Minnesota area homes?
A: As direct home buyers, we purchase houses in and around Minnesota to resell them at a profit after fixing them up and making necessary upgrades. Many of the houses we purchase are not considered “market-ready” which is why we are able to purchase them at a price that is considered below market value. However, in our experience, homeowners that want a quick and easy sale aren’t expecting a large “windfall”. Sellers appreciate that we pay cash, there’s no waiting 30+ days for traditional bank financing, inspections, and appraisals, and we can close in as little as 7 days. If that’s what you’re looking for, contact us today to see if we can come to a fair price that’s a win-win for both parties.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is absolutely zero obligation. Tell us about your property and we’ll take a look to see if it fits our buying criteria. For those houses that do, we can provide you with 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 to us, shop our offer around, or choose a different selling option. We won’t hassle or harass you. It’s 100% your decision and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.
