Maybe you have a few questions. That’s okay; most homeowners looking to sell their home typically do. So here’s a quick collection of some of the questions people ask us…If your question is not listed please feel free to call us at (512) 825-2525 or contact us, and we will answer your question(s) right away.
Q: How Does All Of This Work?
A: We get this question asked often. This is the reason why we devoted a separate section to answer this question. It basically all starts when you fill out our form. Then we do a Comparative Market Analysis., which gives us an idea of the value of the property based on area homes.
To get a more in-depth description of how our process works…please visit our “How It Works“ page.

A: We Buy Houses In Austin, in any condition in cash. We are an excellent option if you need to sell your house fast and easy! Often, homeowners just want to avoid the hassle, expense, and nerve wrecking experience of listing their home with a real estate agent.
Q: My house is in terrible condition, will you still buy it?
A: Absolutely! We buy houses in Austin that need repairs all the time. We are mainly flippers, so the more room for improvement, the more attractive your house is to us. So, Yes, absolutely! We’d love to buy your house even if it is in bad shape, and you may be surprised by how much we will offer your house! Just fill in our form and see how much we will offer you in cash for your house in Austin, TX! Don’t worry about any level of repairs. We can handle anything. This is the absolute best way to sell a house fast that needs repairs in Austin.
Q: Will you list my house with an agent on the MLS?
A: Great question. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses Austin 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. Our intention is to buy your house in cash, and rehab it in case any work needs to be done on it and sell it again at a profit. We have many solutions for buying your house, including seller financing, wholesaling and flat out buying it for cash. All this ensures you will get your house sold fast!
Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
1. We Determine The Market Value Of Your Home In Austin, TX.
It all starts with a CMA ( Comparable Market Analysis). We look at all the houses that have recently been sold within a 1-mile radius of your house, that is very similar (comparable) to your house, (same square footage, number of beds/baths etc. ). This is a standard method used by investors and real estate agents.
We then look at their sold price. This gives us a very accurate market value of your house if your house is in the exact same condition of these other houses that have been sold.
2. We Determine The Cost Of Repairs.
Typically with most houses we buy, we will have to make repairs to bring the property up to the standards (or exceed) current market properties that have recently sold. This enables us to potentially re-sell the house at market value. When we meet at your home, we will note during the walkthrough repairs we feel needed to accomplish this goal.
Our family has been buying and selling real estate in the Austin area for over 30 years which gives us the necessary experience to be able to distinguish what has to be repaired. This is why we are able to make you the best possible offer on your home the first time!
3. We Make You An Offer.
We offer total transparency with our offers. I will show you exactly how we ascertain the offer price by providing you with the CMA, proposed repair costs, holding costs, etc. There is never any obligation with our offers. You can either accept the offer or decline it without any cost to you.
If you accept the offer we can discuss a closing date where you will receive your cash and be completely done with the house! Congratulations, you just sold your house without any hassle, fees or commissions.
Q: Will you still buy my house even if there is a tenant living there?
A: Yes. Even if the house has a tenant, with or without a lease, we are still interested in making you an offer to buy the house. No problem.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Excellent question! Yes, we definitely pay fair prices. But please know there is a difference between a fair price and market value. If the house is in bad shape, we take the market value of the house and subtract all the cost of repairs needed and we come up with a number that obviously is a fair price. In some special cases, we can present highly competitive offers at market value. However, usually, those cases do not allow us to pay all cash. Seller financing is one such of such cases. For more information on fair offers, I have written a simple ebook on how such “below market offers” may still be the best offer scenario. When we meet, I will explain how we come up with our offer that is presented to you.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: An agent does not actually buy your house. Agents market your house on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), in hopes a buyer will be interested. Agents charge commissions and fees. Listing your house in Austin with an agent means you pay closing costs, title fees, and have to tolerate countless walkthroughs while the house is on the market which can be a long time.
We are two people with the cash and connections to other cash buyers interested in buying houses, rehab them and put it back on the market for sale for a profit. We are cash buyers and investors. We are the ones actually buying your house. We skip the entire “agent” process and jump immediately to the offer and closing on your property you have for sale in the Austin area. We cover the conventional expenses associated with selling a house like closing costs and inspections. The most notable difference is that we do not charge you any fees or commissions. As mentioned, we skip the entire “agent” process.
Q. Are there any obligations after I fill in the form?
A. 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 and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.
There are no obligations, at all. We understand that you have options. We know there are people out there eager to scam you, and eager to take advantage of you and your situation. To distinguish ourselves from those, we make sure you know there are no costs to you. You truly and absolutely have nothing to lose. We make you an offer and if you accept the offer, great! You will get your cash quickly. If you do not accept the offer we will do our best to guide you in the right direction.
Q. Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A. This is what makes us stand out from the traditional method of selling your house: 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 house (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 all of the 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… and often with cash in your hand).
Q. Should I just list my house in TX with an agent?
A. Honestly, we do not know… (yet)! We would need to take a look at your house, your situation, your timeline, your location your expectations, needs and requirements for us to give you a solid answer. And we are happy to provide you with our professional recommendation.
