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 property, and values of comparable houses sold in the area recently. As you know, house values have taken a huge hit in the last 5 years and most areas still haven’t seen prices come back up. We take many pieces of information into consideration… and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too.
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 risk 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 it’s 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 come along who wants the house and can be approved for a loan to buy it. We offer options. We are not like the realtor next door. We know that one method of selling isn’t applicable in all situations. We understand the local market and the need to give people faster ways to sell their property. Many people don’t realize the options available! The agent shows the properties to prospective buyers if there are any. That process may take 2 months or it could take over 12 months. Then they 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 that can wait 2-12 months to sell and 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 pay with cash, we can close without needing a bank’s approval. Banks are super slow, but we are fast. We will not charge you any fees or commissions. We make money later after we buy houses and repair them or update them. 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 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 (which is the hard part in this market), and you get to walk away from closing with no more stress. When you choose to sell your house directly to Acorninvestments4u, you will save on commission, fees, and repair costs. And remember, the longer you hold on to a house, the more it will cost you!
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 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.
Q: Are you a real estate agent and are there fees or commissions involved?
A: No! We are real estate investors who love helping people by buying and selling homes. There are never any fees or commissions involved when you work with us. We will also handle all the paperwork associated with buying or selling your house. Our goal is to make the buying and sales process a smooth, easy transaction for you. You will never have to pay us anything up front or during the sales process.
Q: What types of homes do you buy?
A: We buy all types of homes. Any size. Any condition. Any situation. You don't need to make any repairs, or even clean, before we buy your home. If you're in financial distress or just ready to move on to the next phase and having a hard time selling, we are confident that we can help you. Oftentimes we can make you a fair cash offer and close within 14 days. Just give us a call!
