FAQ on Selling Your Austin Home for Cash
Are you real estate agents wanting to list my home?
No, we do not want to list your home. We buy homes to resell or rent at a later date. We are not asking to list your home, we want to buy it!!
What makes you different from other companies?
Many of the companies that promise to buy your house are not true real estate investors. In fact, they may even be selling your contract to another investor! We are legitimate investors, and we have the funds available to buy your house now!
What does it really mean when you say that you will buy my house for CASH?
We have the funds available in cash to buy your home today! We will not be applying for financing or selling your contract to another company. Because we have cash, you don’t have to deal with many of the hassles of a traditional sale.
What will you do with my home after you purchase it?
Each home is unique. In some cases, we may renovate the property to sell or rent later. In other cases, the home may not need any renovations before it can be sold or rented.
Will you pay what my home is actually worth?
We pay market value for the homes we buy. When you receive an offer from us, you can be sure it will be fair and reasonable.
What are the steps in the process of selling my home?
After you have accepted the offer we make on your home, we will send the contract to a local title company. If necessary, the title company will request a payoff from the mortgage company before pulling a title report. Once we are sure the title is free and clear, we will close at your convenience.
I currently live outside Texas. Is that going to be a problem?

To ensure that the transaction adheres to all state regulations, we always schedule our closings at a local title company. The closing will be scheduled at your convenience.
What if I am behind on my mortgage?
Even if you are behind on your mortgage payments, we can usually still buy your home. To get a better idea of how much you owe, we will ask the mortgage company to provide a statement of the reinstatement amount plus the outstanding balance. After we have this information, we can look at your options together.

What is your program? What do you look at before you make an offer?
