How does the process work?
The process of selling your house to Express Homebuyers is done in six easy steps:
- Answer a few simple questions about your house.
- One of our home buyers will tour your property.
- We send you a hassle-free offer.
- You review the paperwork and sign if you’re happy.
- Together we choose a closing day.
- You get your cash within one business day from closing.
How much will you pay for my house?
You will get a fair price offer on your home.
Your offer depends on a number of factors, including:
- Street appeal
- Necessary renovations
- Year and type of house
- Selling price of similar houses
When do I get paid?
You will get paid following property settlement, usually just one day after we close!
If you need some cash now, you can request up to a $10,000 advance, and then one to two business days later you’ll receive the rest of your money.
Do I have to go to closing?
No, you are under no obligation to go to closing if the offer you receive is not to your liking. And if you’re unable to attend closing in-person, we can close remotely.
How quickly can we close?
Your house can be closed on in as little as seven days!
Do you buy my house or just look for a buyer?
Yes, we buy your house directly so there’s no need to worry about listings or open houses. This speeds up the process and also lets you avoid expensive real estate agent fees and other costs you would normally incur.
Do you pay off the mortgage?
Yes, we pay off your mortgage. At closing the title company is required by law to pay off the mortgage and any liens on your property following title clearance. This is a great way to avoid foreclosure if that is the reason you’re selling.
Do I need to move out when I sell the house?
Yes, you need to move out when the house closes. When crafting your sales agreement, we can set a closing date which meets your timeline. Want to close in eight weeks? That’s perfectly fine. Want to close in two weeks? That’s fine too!
Can you help me with moving?
Yes, we can help with moving by covering your moving fees with a cash advance of up to $10,000.
Can I leave things at the house?
Yes. Anything you don’t want can be left behind and we’ll get rid of it at no extra charge.
Do you need to see the property before making an offer?
Yes, we like to see the home but can make offers based on pictures of it. If you aren’t comfortable taking them, we can send a representative from our company to photograph your house for you.
Are you BBB rated?
Yes, we are proud to have an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). We have been accredited with the BBB since 2003.
Make sure you're dealing with a reputable company that keeps their word, so you don't end up in a lose-lose situation.
