Frequently Asked Questions
Maybe you have some questions about our service. That’s okay – most people do. So here’s a quick collection of some of the questions people ask us… along with our answers. If you still have a question, don’t hesitate to contact us (or give us a call) and we’ll be happy to answer it for you.
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: Great question. We buy houses in Boise Idaho; we don’t list them. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses in Boise that meet our purchasing criteria. After that, we may repair the house and resell it to a retail buyer or keep it as a rental ourselves.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Most of the houses we purchase are below market value (we do this so we can resell them at a profit to another home owner). We are interested in getting a fair discount on a property, but in our experience, many sellers aren’t necessarily expecting a large “windfall” on the property. Instead, they appreciate that we can offer cash, close very quickly (no waiting for financing), and do not expect you to spend time or effort or expense fixing up your property or paying realtor fees. If that’s what you’re looking for and you also see the value in getting your house sold fast, let’s see if we can come to a fair win-win price. (Our no-obligation offers mean that you do not have to move forward with the price we give if it doesn’t work for you… it’s just good to know what we can offer!)

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Great question! We’re an open book, and our process is very straightforward: We look at the location of the property, how many repairs and updates repairs are needed, current condition of the property, and values of comparable houses that have sold in the area recently. We take many pieces of information into consideration… and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you as well. Our goal is to buy houses. Boise and surrounding communities have a lot of great properties, and we strive to achieve a win-win outcome with sellers.
Q: Are there any fees or commissions if I sell to you?
A: This is one of the biggest ways we stand out from the traditional method of selling your house: There are absolutely NO fees or commissions when you sell your house us. We’ll make you an offer, and if it’s a fit then we’ll buy your house (and we’ll often pay for the closing costs too!). No hassle. No fees. We make our money after we pay for repairs and updates 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. No more 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 people submit acceptable offers to buy them. The agents show the properties to prospective buyers and then take a percentage of the sale price. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 6% of the sale price of your house (so if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay between $3,000 – $6,000 in commissions to an agent). Agents provide a great service for those that can wait for the process to unfold…often 3-6 months total selling time…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 home buyers. We buy houses in Boise and surrounding communities; we don’t list houses for customers. Since we’re actually the ones buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash… 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 with our own cash; then repair the house; then market it ourselves to find a buyer that can make it through the financing process.
Q: Is there any obligation if I submit my info?
A: There is absolutely no obligation for you. Once you tell us a little bit about your property, we’ll take a look at things and set up a call with you to find out a bit more. We’ll come see your house, and we’ll make you an all-cash offer that’s fair for you and fair for us. From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you want to sell your house to us. We won’t hassle you, won’t harass you… it’s 100% your decision and we’ll let you make the right one for you. We buy houses in Boise and we’d love to buy yours, buy only if you want to sell it to us!
