FAQsWhen they’re in a hurry to sell a house for cash, Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland residents know they can rely on Express Homebuyers for rapid action. We’ve helped more than a thousand homeowners sell their homes, often as quickly as one week!

We help people resolve all types of situations and problems by delivering on our promise of buying their homes directly, without wasting time or incurring additional costs. During our tenure in business, we’ve answered thousands of questions about the home selling and home buying process. Here are the most important things you’ll need to know when selling your house for cash in MD, DC or VA.

Q: How many homes has Express Homebuyers bought over the years?

A: Since 2003 we have purchased more than 2,200 homes in the Washington DC, Baltimore, Maryland and Virginia region. We are not an outside agency that swoops in to buy up homes. Because we know the area so well, we’re able to provide a higher level of service and pay purchase prices that are more competitive.

Q: What do you need to know in order to buy my house?

A: We can get started with just some basic information about your house. How many bedrooms? How many bathrooms? Is there a garage? Is the basement finished? What is the overall condition of the property? How long have you owned the house? Are there any outstanding liens against the property? Do you have a current mortgage? What is the balance? From there, we can get started on the purchase process.

Q: Can you really buy my house in just one week?

A: If all the paperwork is  completed promptly, you have clear title and there are no problems, we can often complete the purchase of a property in just 7 days. Our fastest ever close was done in less than 24 hours.

Q: I have a mortgage. Does it get paid off?

A: Yes. By law, any mortgage or other liens must be paid off when you sell the house. The balance of the money goes to you.

Q: I am facing foreclosure. Can you still buy my house?

A: Yes, if we work quickly! Many lenders would prefer to receive payment on their mortgage loan instead of taking the property. Express Homebuyers often works with lenders to delay foreclosure until we can complete the home purchase and you have the money to pay off the mortgage and avoid foreclosure. If you live in Maryland and are within a certain period of time before your foreclosure sale date, we will introduce you to a Foreclosure Consultant. State law requires that if you are within a certain window, a foreclosure consultant must explain to you all of your options involved in selling your home.

Q: How do you determine the amount you will pay for a house?

A: We take many factors into consideration, including:  location of the home, age and condition of the property, any needed repairs, selling prices of similar homes, etc. We’ve been making real estate transactions for many years and have deep experience in determining the fair market value of a home.

Q:  My house needs several repairs. Does this mean you won’t buy it?

A: Not at all! Most of the houses we purchase are in need of repairs or updating. So long as the home is basically in good condition, we’ll buy it from you.

Q: Is there a fee you charge when you buy a house?

A: No. Unlike many home buying companies or real estate agents, Express Homebuyers  never charges a fee.

Q: How long do I have to decide once you make an offer on my house?

A: Most of our offers have a 30 day expiration date. But in many cases, homeowners find our offers so attractive and fair they accept them immediately!

Q: Do you buy condominiums?

A: Yes. Express Homebuyers will purchase a condo, townhouse, duplex, farm, apartment house, vacation property, land – almost any piece of real estate.

Q: Where do you buy property?

A: We currently buy property in the District of Columbia and in the states of Maryland and Virginia. In Virginia, we can buy your Northern Virginia (Fairfax, Alexandria, Arlington, Prince William County) home fast. In Maryland, talk to us about your Baltimore County, Montgomery County, Frederick County, or Prince Georges County home. If you don’t see your area listed, let us know. We are constantly expanding, and we can also contact a company in our network that will be happy to assist you.

Q: Do you belong to the Better Business Bureau?

A:  Express Homebuyers has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) serving Metropolitan Washington, DC and Eastern Pennsylvania since February 2004.

Real estate agents want you to fix up everything and they can take a long time. And I really wanted the process to be done quickly. I was fortunate Express Homebuyers bought my home “as is” and there was no stress on my end. I learned selling your home doesn’t have to be a nightmare.”
