Selling Your House For Cash | FAQ
Have a few questions? Great! We encourage everyone to ask as many questions as they would like and we are happy to do our best to answer every single one, even if you choose not to sell your house to us. We believe this is the right thing to do in order to operate our business with integrity and transparency. You can call us at any time to ask your questions at (210) 201-6644 or fill out the form and we will be happy to contact you. There’s never any obligation to sell.
Below are a few of the more commonly asked questions from sellers who are interested in having us buy their home.
Q: Why Should I Choose You?
A: That is a great question! We are a locally owned business that operates out of San Antonio, TX. Unlike other investors who are franchisees of large national companies, we know our area inside and out. We have been investing in the area for over a decade and our experience separates us from all the new kids who claim to “Buy Houses With Cash”.
Q: How Do You Decide On The Offer Price?
A: We base our offer price on several factors. The most important ones being the location of the property, the current condition of the property, and the amount of repairs needed to the property. We will look at the properties in your neighborhood that have sold recently and use that along with the other factors to come up with a fair all-cash offer for your property.
Our goal is to provide you with a cash offer for your property that works for you. We will save you the time, energy, and money associated with repairs, cleaning, agent commissions, and waiting for a buyer.

Q: Are There Any Fees Or Costs?
A: There are NO fees and NO commissions when you sell your house to us. We’ll make you an offer, and if it works for you then we’ll buy your house (and we’ll often pay for the closing costs too!). No hassle. No fees. No paying for repairs. No Holding Costs. We are not real estate agents and we do not charge you to sell your house. We are real estate investors and we take on all the responsibilities of repairing and remodeling your house after we purchase it.
Q: How Does The Process Work?
A: You can call us at (210) 201-6644 or fill in the form. We will come by and take a quick look at your house so that we can get an idea of the condition of the home and any needed repairs. Then we will make you a cash offer that you are free to accept or refuse.
If you choose to accept our offer, we will let you choose a closing date and we will get started on all the details. We will take care of everything that doesn’t absolutely have to be done by you.
Once we are ready to close, we will send the money to the title company and once they have verified that everything is good, they will send your money to you.
Q: Is A “We Buy Houses” Company A Good Fit For Me?
A: The truth is it depends. It depends on what your needs are. Most people that we buy houses from are not desperate and they are not facing foreclosure. Most of our clients choose us because they don’t want to deal with the hassles of a traditional sale, their property needs repairs or updating, or they need to sell on a certain timeline. We are great at helping with all those situations.
If your house is in perfect condition, you don’t mind paying a real estate agent, and you are happy to wait around for just the right buyer, then we may not be the best fit for you, and that’s okay.
We have purchased hundreds of houses and our clients have had countless different reasons for choosing to sell to us. It really is about you and your situation. Even if you would just like to ask a few questions to see if we might be right for you, feel free to give us a call (210) 201-6644. There is never any obligation to sell.
Q: How Long Does The Process Take?
A: It’s completely up to you! We can buy your house in as little as 7 days and sometimes even faster when needed. Many of our clients want more time to either move out of the property or get some belonging from the property and that is perfectly fine with us. If you need a 14 day close, 30 day close, or you are relocating in 3 months and you want to make sure you can close on the day you leave, just let us know and we will do everything we can to meet your timeline.
Q: How Do I Get The Cash For My House?
A: Depending on whether you choose to close at the title company or have a mobile closing our buyers typically get paid by a wire transfer from the title company or with a certified check from the title company.
Title Company – If you close at the title company, you will schedule an appointment, sign your closing paperwork, and once the title company has varified the paperwork and that they have received our funds, you can have the money wired directly to your bank account or you can choose to receive a check.
Close At Your Location – We are happy to offer a mobile closing if this is helpful to our clients. We will schedule a mobile notary to meet you wherever you would like to complete your closing paperwork. After signing your closing paperwork the mobile notary will overnight the documents to the title company. Once they have verified the documents they will wire the money to your bank account or they can send a check directly to you.
Q: What If I Don’t Want To Sell Fast?
A: That’s fine with us! We have been buying houses for years and we will still be buying them in 30 days, 90 days, or 2 years from now if you want. We know that many of our competitors will try to force you to sell right now and that they can’t write for a closing that is a few months away, but we just don’t agree with that.
We encourage you to choose a closing timeline that works for you. We have the experience and resources to be able to buy your house in 7 days or 70 days, whichever is best for you.
Q: My House Needs A Lot Of Work, Is That OK?
A: Yes, absolutely! We buy houses in any condition and you would be amazed at some of the properties that we have bought! No matter how much or how little repairs your property may need, we will buy any house in any condition.
Just give us a call and we can let you know how much we can offer your for your house in its current condition. No repairs needed.
Q: What Do I Have To Fix Before I Move Out?
A: Nothing. You don’t even have to sweep the floor. When we say “Sell Your House As-Is”, we mean it! Take what you want and leave the rest to us. We’ve purchased houses that were full to the brim of everything and anything. We don’t judge. We want to make it as easy for you as possible so take what you need and we will handle all the repairs and all the cleaning.
Q: How Are You Different From A Real Estate Agent?
A: Real estate agents don’t actually buy the house from you. They advertise the properties for sale and hope that someone will buy them. The average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 6-12 months, and then take a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer. Most times, the agent’s commission is 6% of the sale price of your house (so if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay $6,000 in commissions to an agent) and you will have additional closing costs on top of that.
We’re different: We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. Our company actually buys houses. We don’t list houses. We remove a lot of the middlemen and since we’re actually the ones buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash… we can make a decision to buy your house and have the paperwork started within a couple of hours.
We can cover all the closing costs that you would normally pay when selling through an agent. We never charge you any fees or commissions and you will be working with a legitimate cash buyer so you won’t have to wait hoping that an agent will find you a qualified buyer.
