It starts with a phone call, email, or fill out this form. We monitor incoming messages seven days a week, and will get back to you promptly usually within a few hours.
After we’ve gathered basic information from your property address, interior and exterior condition, whether there are tenants or not we’ll provide a ballpark cash offer estimate to you.
If that estimate is satisfactory to you, we’ll schedule a walk through of the property with you, your tenants, or your representative. This can usually be done the same or next day. After confirming condition, we’ll provide you a written cash offer.
If the offer is acceptable to you, we’ll execute and close within as soon as 2 business days, though 3-5 business days is preferred by the title company. We can also close after longer periods, if that is your preference.
Unlike listing your home the traditional route with a Realtor, you need do practically nothing when you sell to us. We’re expecting to purchase the property completely ‘as is where is, with all faults’, and that means warts and all. Often, all we request is that you turn the keys over to us and provide any written leases for tenants currently in possession of the premises.
If you can provide us a property survey, that is helpful (but not necessary). Also, the title company may require some details from you regarding a mortgage payoff or probate paperwork.
Yes! Be aware that the vast majority of cash homebuyers in the Austin marketplace are actually what’s known as “wholesalers”. These folks are actually in the business of flipping the contract to purchase your house to actual investors. That means they may or may not be successful in that effort.
When you sell to SellYourHouse.biz, we are the final, actual cash buyers of your home. There is no intermediary, no lenders, and nothing that could get in the way of the transaction.
Usually, we will first resolve any physical problems with the property, such as fix the foundation, replace the roof, address tenant issues, etc. We will then often embark on a cosmetic interior and exterior transformation of the property to bring it in line with the highest end properties in the neighborhood.
We will then usually sell the property to an owner occupant buyer, but we will sometimes hold the property for investment for a period of time.
Unlike some homebuyers, that use a “Black Box” strategy of coming up with lowball offers, we have a very specific process to determine our offer prices.
First, we’ll calculate what we think we can sell your property for after we’ve brought the property current with repairs and cosmetic improvements.
Next, we’ll subtract the actual renovation costs and the typical holding costs that we can expect to bear during the renovation (insurance, utilities, materials, labor, etc).
Then, we add what we believe to be a fair and reasonable profit margin as compensation for taking on the renovation.
When these numbers are tabulated, a purchase price is established, and that is what we will offer you. We won’t give you rigid time restrictions to accept our offer, and we won’t pressure you. If our number makes sense, great, and if it doesn’t, that’s okay too.
We know full well that homeowners know the value of their real estate, and we also know that they will reject unfair offers. That’s why we don’t start low and hope you’ll talk us up. Most homeowners tell us that our offers are at the top of (or very close to) the highest price they’ve been offered by other cash homebuyers.
We have learned over the past eleven years that making fair offers, and delivering on our promises, allows us to maintain our stellar reputation and in turn, purchase more houses at fair prices in the future.
Most homeowners absolutely should list with a real estate agent or Broker!
Exposing your property to the highest number of buyers via the MLS will increase the likelihood of receiving the highest offer. Even with Realtor commissions factored in, many owners will still do better listing the traditional method with a Realtor.
However, there are several situations in which selling directly to a cash homebuyer may be preferable:
We know there are many cash homebuyers out there, and we know you’ve probably received multiple solicitations.
We suggest and expect that people who contact us are also contacting other cash homebuyers.
At the end of the day, you’ll want to choose the cash homebuyer who not only offers you the highest price, but who has the credibility and reputation to follow through on their commitment.
Since 2004, I’ve purchased over 200 homes, and another 100 duplexes and fourplexes. Most homeowners have sent us heartfelt thanks for our professionalism and honoring our commitments.
We hope you’ll give us an opportunity as well.
