Frequently Asked Questions
Maybe you have a few questions. That’s okay; most people do. So here’s a quick collection of some of the questions people ask us… along with our answers. If you still have a question, 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 actually buying it?
A: Great question. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses in Fort Worth 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: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: It all starts with a CMA ( Comparable Market Analysis). The CMA tells us all about the houses that have sold in your neighborhood. We look at all the houses that have recently been sold within a 1 mile radius of your house, that are very similar (comparable) to your house, (same square footage, number of beds/baths etc.). We will then provide you an offer based on all the information from the comparable sales in your neighborhood.
Of course, we look at the location of the house. Is it located in a quiet cul-de-sac or is it located on a busy street. What condition is your home currently in? Does it need $50,000 in repairs or just cleaning and painting? We pride ourselves in being transparent and honest so we will explain exactly how we came up with our offer. And we’ll answer any questions you have about our offer, selling your house, or about the closing process. We are real estate buying professionals, and we’re glad to share our process with you.
Our goal is to allow you to receive the highest possible amount for your property while still having the purchase make sense as an investment for us. We are seeking a Win-Win situation! More often than not, you can net MORE MONEY by selling to us than by listing the property and selling with a realtor.

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 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: 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, if there are any, and then take a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 3-6% of the sale price of your house (so if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay between $3,000 – $6,000 in commissions to an agent). Agents provide a great service for those who don’t mind giving up some of that sale price to pay for the commissions.
But that’s where we’re different: We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. Our company actually buys houses. We don’t list houses. Since we’re actually the one buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash… we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple of days (sometimes the same day). Again, we make our living by taking the risk to buy the house with our own cash, repair the house, and market it ourselves to find a buyer.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
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 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.
