Q: Will you be listing my house or actually buying it?
A: Great question. We’re not agents, we are property investment professionals: We buy houses throughout Townsville that meet our purchasing criteria, however, we love helping people with ‘selling my home’ questions. our strategies are diverse, we may repair the house and resell it to another homeowner or keep it as a rental ourselves.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Our aim is to purchase a property at a fair market value price. Sometimes the homes we purchase are slightly below market value to enable us to effectively onsell the property. From our experience, many sellers aren’t necessarily expecting a large “windfall” on the property but rather appreciate that we can make a fair offer or provide an alternative solution, we can finalise an agreed offer or solution very quickly (no waiting for financing), and no time or effort or expense is required on your part of fix up the property or pay agent fees. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting the right solution to selling your house fast… let’s see if we can come to a fair win-win price. (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!).

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, in some areas, 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 my 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 effectively buy your house. 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 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 (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. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 3-4% of the sale price of your house (so if it’s a $300,000 house, you’ll pay between $9,000 – $12,000 in commissions to an agent). Agents provide a great service for those that can wait 6-12 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 property investors with real solutions. Since we’re actually the one buying the house from you, 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, repair the house where needed, and market it ourselves to find the right buyer (which is always the hard part in this market). So if you need help with ‘selling my house’ or just have more questions contact us, we’re here to help!
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 then where appropriate 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.
