2. Are You Local to Louisville?
Yes. Our team is 100% local to Louisville. We have been buying houses in Louisville for years now and know the area very well.
3. What do you do?
We are homebuyers In Louisville who pay cash for houses. We are the alternative to listing your property with an agent. We provide a quick and easy way for you to sell your Louisville house.
4. How are you different that a real estate agent?
An agent’s job is to list the property for you on the MLS (Multiple Listings Services). We are not listing your property, we are the ones who are actually buying it. An agent will also charge you commissions for their services that comes out of your listing price when you go to sell it. Since you are dealing straight with us from start to finish, there will be no commissions or extra costs associated with selling your house with an Agent.
5. How do you know what price to offer for my house?
Several factors are taken into consideration when determining the offer for your house. Some things we consider when making an offer are: your expectations, the comparable sales and the condition of the property. The most important factor is your expectations, we don’t want to force an offer that will not work for your particular situation so it helps us to know if you already have some sort of idea for what what you want for it.
However, If you don’t know how much you want or need more guidance about what your home could be worth, we would be more than happy to show you comparable sales in your neighborhood free of charge so that you can get a better idea of what you may want to ask for your home.
Once, you have an idea for how much you would be interested in selling your house for, we then compare your asking price with similar properties that have sold in the area. Next, we calculate the amount of repairs we are going to be making to the house along with the minimum profit we need to make. Once you have those figure, we will have enough information to present our offer. This process sounds like it would take a long time but for us it’s easy, we can do it all in minutes. For more information about the process, you can see a more detailed explanation if you go to the How It Works page.

10. Should I just list my house for sale with an agent?
That depends on your timeline, and your situation. Houses that are completed renovated already are typically great for listing with an agent because the renovated houses tend to sell faster than the fixer uppers. Before hiring an agent though, we would recommend reading The Pros and Cons of Listing With An Agent. We have several other articles on that topic and others in our Blog section.
