Frequently Asked Questions

It’s normal to have questions about selling your home!

It can be a long, complicated process in the hands of an unexperienced agent. It can also be a smooth, fast process in a We Buy Houses, LLC agent’s hands.

Q:  Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A:   Very few real estate agents have the required funds to purchase homes without using a mortgage. On the other hand not many investors are licensed real estate agents. At We Buy Houses, LLC we’re not like either traditional investors or agents-we’re both! The short answer is we can either list your home or purchase it for cash. It is completely dependent upon you and your goals.

Q:  Do you pay reasonable prices for properties?
A:  Our goal is to offer you the highest amount possible for your home. We are in business for the long-term and our goal is to have a steady stream of word-of-mouth advertising. We can’t do that by making low ball offers. We aren’t in the business of wholesaling either. Wholesaling is essentially selling your home to another investor (sometimes never owning it) for a profit-basically a middleman. With that being said we do have costs that we need to cover in order to sell your home for retail price. If we purchase your house for cash we do have carrying costs, closing fees (that we pay), and property repairs. Here is a case study comparing listing or selling to us! Our goal is to come to a number that works for both parties. The condition of the house helps to determine our offer price as well. Our offers are no-obligation and free so you have nothing to lose.

Q:  How do you determine what price to offer on my home?
A:  We are very transparent and out process is very straightforward. Some of the big factors to determine the price are: location, repairs needed, condition and values of comparable homes recently sold. There are many other factors that may need to be considered when pricing the value of a home.

Q:  Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: Yes and no. If we purchase your home for cash there are zero fees, commissions, closing costs-period. If we list your house on the market there are commissions and closing costs which would be paid by you, the seller. Listing your house with us (or any agent) costs money and there is almost always a commission when working with a real estate agent. One of the biggest advantages of listing your home with We Buy Houses, LLC is that we specialize in properties that need TLC. We know how to maximize the amount of money you will receive when it is all said and done. It is also important to note that selling your house on the market may increase the amount of money you receive but it normally takes longer to sell the home. Contact us at 571-719-0681 or submit the form on our site so we can walk you through how we can help you sell your house and reach your goals while putting the most money in your pocket.

Q:  How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Great question! Several years ago we discovered that many Northern Virginia house sellers were being ignored and under-served by real estate investors AND agents who were limited in how they could solve homeowners’ problems. For most real estate agents to take on a listing, the house has to be “show ready,” which often requires you to pay for repairs, hold open houses, show the house to several potential buyers, and deal with the often-stressful problem of buyers backing out at the last minute or financing falling through.

On the other hand, many real estate investors make cash offers based off of a formula that works for their business model, but for a seller who isn’t necessarily in a hurry or is indeed willing to go through the traditional selling process, that offer is often way too low.

At We Buy Houses, LLC, we are able to serve you with several options to sell, and you can pick the one that best helps you reach your goals.

Selling your house for cash is similar to trading in a car. If you trade in a car you don’t make as much money if you sold it privately but there are no tire kickers and it doesn’t get much easier than trading it in. Selling your home for cash is the fastest way to sell your house.

If you’re seeking top dollar and can wait for the right retail buyer to come long, great! We can list your home on the market and sell it fast to put the most money in your pocket.

Essentially, the primary way we are different is that we don’t box you in to a single option. We offer choices so you can choose what works for you.

Q:  Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: Our cash offers come with no strings attached. There is no obligation, no cost and no pressure from us. Once we have enough info on our home we can take a look at things and make you an all cash offer. From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us… and we won’t pressure you!
