FAQ on Selling Your Fort Myers House for Cash
If I enter my information, am I obligated to sell?
No. Entering your information allows us to get a hold of you and schedule a visit. There is absolutely no obligation to sell at any part of the process. You can wait and hear the offer, and if you aren’t satisfied, simply walk away. You are only obligated to sell after you sign a contract accepting the offer.
What kinds of fees will I have to pay when selling my house?
In a traditional sale through a realtor, the fees are endless. There are titling costs, closing costs, inspections, and the monstrous realtor fees. When you sell to us, we handle all of these fees and bake them into our offer. You have no direct costs to sell to us. The number we give you is the final number — no hidden fees or costs.
How is the offering price for my house determined?
The offer on your house will be based on a number of factors. The house itself is the biggest determiner. The size of the house and lot, along with the floorplan, impact the total value. We will also consider the condition of the house. We buy houses in any condition, and disrepair does affect the offer.
We also have to consider external factors like the neighborhood and market trends. In all, we evaluate the house the same way anyone in real estate would, and we base our offer on that evaluation.
What do you do with the house after you purchase it?
We are real estate investors, so there are a number of things we can do with a house. Sometimes, we flip the house to try to turn a profit. Other times, we fix it up and rent it out. Ultimately, what is done with the house will depend on a lot of circumstances, but flipping and renting are the most common outcomes.
Can I sell my house if I am behind on the mortgage?
Yes. In fact, it is important to understand that you have this right. Sometimes people fall behind on their mortgages, and it is not always possible to catch up. The good news is your house has value, and until foreclosure, you are still the owner of the house. If selling is the best way to resolve the situation, we can help you do that, and we can do it quickly enough to beat foreclosure deadlines.
How long does it take to sell my house?
The answer to this question mostly depends on you. You can sell the house lightning fast if you like, or you can take your time. If you’re in an absolute hurry, we can complete the entire process in a few days. Since we do cash offers, we don’t have to wait for banks or approval. We can simply charge forward.
If you aren’t in a hurry, we’re happy to slow down and match your schedule.
Do I have to move out right after selling my house?
No. We understand that fast sales happen because of extenuating circumstances. When we present the offer, we will discuss timelines with you. We can work with you to make a schedule that allows you to get money for the house without having to vacate immediately. Simply tell us what you need so we can work with you.
Can I sell my house if I live out of state?
Yes. There are no laws that prevent such a transaction, and having a professional in-state buyer can make the process a lot easier. We are intimately familiar with Florida real estate laws and regulations. We can ensure that everything is done correctly, and we can conduct the process remotely. If you want an easy out-of-state sale, we’re your best resource.
What types of houses do you buy?
We buy all types of houses, and we stand by that statement. We buy brand-new houses. We buy historical houses. We buy condemned houses, houses that were devastated by a storm, houses that are completely out of date — and everything in between. If it technically counts as a house, we’re interested.
