A: Great question. While real estate agents list your house and then show it to many buyers to sell it on the open market, we intend to purchase your house from you. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses in Dallas - Fort Worth and surrounding areas that meet our purchasing criteria. From there, we have a few different steps that we take — we may fix up the house to rent it, or we might sell it to someone else.
There’s a difference between what we do at High Five House Buyers and what most real estate agents do: a real estate agent will usually get you to fix up your property before they list it. Then they list it on a service like the MLS and they show your house to as many buyers as they can find… it usually takes 3-12 months to find a buyer. IF they can find a buyer who is interested in your house (and IF the buyer can get financing) then the agent will act on your behalf to sell the house to the buyer. For their services, the agent will take a commission (sometimes it could be a few thousand dollars). We believe that agents provide a great service for those that can wait that long and who don’t mind paying those commissions. But here’s how we’re different: we won’t list your house to find a buyer… we ARE the buyers. We want to buy your house from you directly and pay you cash for it. That’s why there are no fees or commissions.
A: We look for houses that might be old, in foreclosure, or are distressed in some way, and we buy from owners who do not want to spend the time or money to fix up the property and who do not want to wait to sell. We are experts in real estate finance, which means we work hard with homeowners to help find a win-win price for the house. Thanks to our years of experience, and our network, we don’t do “low ball” offers like some of the other home buying companies out there — we’re able to offer home sellers like you a pretty competitive offer to buy a house in as-is condition, and buy it quickly if you’d like. (Besides, our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you do not have to move forward with the offer we give… but it’s good to know what we’re offering!)
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. We take many pieces of information into consideration… and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too.
A: Here’s the reason that clients love working with us: there are no fees or commissions when you sell your Dallas Fort Worth house to us… and we’ll often pay for the closing costs, too! It’s simple. There are no fees or surprises… you just put cash in your pocket and walk away from your real estate hassles, and you can leave your real estate burden with us. (We make our money by buying properties at a slightly lower price then we fix up the property and either rent or sell it out for a profit… but we take on all of that risk and you don’t have to).
There’s no obligation for you whatsoever. Just share your property info so we can figure out how much we can offer you… and after that, it’s 100% your decision whether or not to accept our offer and sell to us. We won’t hassle you… if you choose to sell or not — it’s entirely up to you.
