Frequently Asked Questions

WHO SELLS THEIR HOUSE TO SECOND CHANCE OFFERS?

There are many reasons why someone may need to sell their Austin area house to us but here are a few common reasons:

• Your house was inherited and you don’t know what to do with it
• There has been a death in the family
• Need to move because of job change
• The house is in need of repairs
• You are behind in payments and need to sell quickly
• You are tired of being a landlord
• You are unable or tired of the upkeep

WHAT TYPES OF PROPERTIES DO YOU BUY IN AUSTIN?

We buy single- and multi-family properties from single -family houses to small apartment complexes.

WHY SHOULD I CALL YOU BEFORE OTHER “WE BUY HOUSES” COMPANIES.

We are not a nationwide franchise, which means that we are more likely to be buying your house for our use as a rental or to fix-up ourselves and then sell on the retail market. This means that we can often offer more for your house than the other guys because we cut out the middle man.

WHY SHOULD I CALL YOU BEFORE CONTACTING A REAL ESTATE AGENT?

Real estate agents are geared to listing you home on the MLS (multiple Listing service) and often are not able to help your if your house is not in good shape or if you need to sell quickly. If you contact us first we can give you more options for your situation, make you an offer and close quickly, often with in a few days. If we find that your house is in fairly good shape or you have plenty of time to sell then we can recommend a real estate agent or advise you that putting your house on the retail market would be the best strategy for your situation.

DO I NEED TO FIX MY HOUSE UP BEFORE I CAN SELL?

The great advantage of selling to us is that we buy your home just the way it is, you don’t have to fix a thing.

HOW DO YOU DETERMINE THE PRICE THAT YOU WILL OFFER FOR MY HOUSE?

There are many factors that go into an offer. We start by comparing your house to other houses that have sold in your area so that we can determine an approximate value for your house if it was in perfect shape and ready to sell. We then have to estimate the work that we will have to put into the house to get it to that perfect shape. There are many other costs that we have to factor in to our pricing decision including but not limited to:

• Closing costs
• Insurance
• Holding costs
• Realtor fees
• Title insurance

ARE THERE ANY FEES ASSOCIATED WITH GETTING AN OFFER FROM YOU?

There are never fees for us to make you an offer.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

All you have to do is fill out the Contact Form or call us at 512-384-4844 anytime!

IF I SEND YOU MY INFORMATION AM I OBLIGATED IN ANY WAY?

Absolutely not. We want to get to know you and help you in any way that we can but you are not obligated to work with us even after we give you an offer.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I AGREE TO SELL TO YOU?

After we have determined a price that we both agree to we will fill out a short agreement that states your intention to sell your house to us, and our intention to buy. At that time we will set a closing date that is convenient for you.
