Will You Purchase My Home That Has Known Issues Or Needs Major Repairs?
Yes, that’s what we do every day as we buy houses “as is” in literally any condition. Whether it needs $1,000 in repairs or $100,000 in repairs, that’s not an issue.
We are interested even if your house has significant problems. We will consider homes with asbestos, lead paint, termites, pests, mold, water intrusion, or structural, roof, foundation repairs, or even damage from freezing.
At Flipping Cincy, we have built a very experienced and knowledgeable construction department with the expertise to handle a wide variety of issues and repairs.
Do I Have To Remove My Household Items and Other Belongings?
You don’t have to lift a finger. There’s no need to pay to hire labor to do the heavy lifting or a need to pay for a dumpster. It’s simple; you take any belongings you desire and leave everything else to us. We will recycle or donate items left behind in the home.
What Are The Fees?
There are no fees or commissions to pay when you work with us. After your complimentary, no-obligation appointment, you’ll receive a purchase offer within 24 hours.
If you agree, at closing, you will receive your sales proceeds in the amount of the purchase price, less any outstanding loans and property taxes due. Profits can be by check or by wire transfer (subject to bank wire fees) upon request.
It’s straightforward. There are no games or hidden costs.
How do you know your offer is fair?
Our goal is to get to a fair and competitive offer price that considers your needs and ours.
The biggest factor is the home’s current state, mainly the estimated costs of repairs and improvements needed. We look at many other factors, which include recent sales of other comparable homes in your area.
For example, the costs of permits, city inspections (if required), cleanout costs including dumpster and sanitation, additional related hard closing fees, and holding financing costs, and a reasonable margin for our work are factors.
When we present you with a purchase offer, we are very transparent and open to sharing how we calculated the offer for you to consider.
Will I get as much money as I would if I listed with an agent?
We often get the question, “will you pay top dollar for my house?” The honest answer is not always.
Once you factor in the costs, hassles, and time needed to sell on the open market, we think you’ll agree our offer will be fair and competitive. Our goal is to remove the stress and frustration of selling your home. We want to help you save time, energy, and the financial resources necessary to empty the house, fix it up, clean it, and deal with all the fuss of ongoing showings.
Suppose you are comfortable with taking on all the work and hassles. In that case, you may not be a good fit for us. You should probably consider other alternatives to earn the highest possible price.
In any case, there’s no harm in calling us to set up a complimentary, no-obligation consultation so you can make an informed decision.
Do You Require A Home Inspection Like Most Residential Real Estate Transactions?
Unlike a traditional real estate deal, we do not require a third-party inspection. However, the local municipality will require a city inspection for health and safety review in some situations. On occasion, we may have our construction manager visit the home if there are major repairs or issues to estimate.
Can you help me sell An Inherited Property That I Want To Sell Quickly?
Absolutely. We work with people in a wide array of situations, from probate to bankruptcy, foreclosures, divorce situations to others just looking to downsize or relocate without all the hassles and stress. No matter your situation, we are here to advise and help you move forward faster with great understanding and respect.
Can You Buy My House Sight Unseen Or By Zoom Meeting?
Our standard process is streamlined and often requires only one visit. Occasionally there might be a need to have a second visit by our construction manager to assess major repairs.
We do our best work when we have a chance to meet with our customers. We prefer face to face so we can get to know you, understand your situation and needs. The bottom line is that while we like to meet in person and have a chance to review the property, in some circumstances, we can make an offer without meeting but still inspect the property.
Should I sell my house to an iBuyer? ( an internet Buyer)
We do not recommend selling to an iBuyer. iBuyers are companies like Zillow, Opendoor, and even Redfin that use technology to make “instant” offers on your home.
While seemingly convenient, iBuyers charge up to 10% in transaction fees and closing costs, often require inspections and repairs, and up to 60 days closing time. If you want to reap the benefits of selling your home for cash, it’s better to sell to a local investor.
What's the difference between a real estate agent and a real estate investor?
A real estate agent wants to help you sell your home, while a real estate investor wants to buy your house for cash. Another big difference between a real estate investor and a real estate agent is how they make their money. You don’t have to pay an investor (they pay you!), but you have to pay an agent.
Real estate agents typically require up to 6% commission on every sale they facilitate. Conversely, real estate investors make a profit when they eventually resell or lease the property.
Is selling your house to a real estate investor a good idea?
Every situation is different, but selling your house to an investor can be a lucrative transaction. Selling your home to a real estate investor is a good idea when you need to sell your house quickly. When you don’t want to do any repairs or maintenance and don’t want to pay any commissions or fees, selling to an investor is a great option.
