Got a question? Often, people interested in selling their houses have some questions; how it works, what’s the process, etc. We’ve assembled a list of some of the most frequently asked questions so you can have your answers immediately. If these don’t tell you what you want to know, then connect with us on our contact form here, or give us a call: 832-648-4481.
We think that’s a great question. Remember, we are not real estate agents, and we don’t list houses. We are in the business of buying houses as professional home buyers. We are Houston house buyers and buy houses that fit our buying criteria. After we take ownership, we may remodel the house, resell it to another house buyer, or keep it as a rental.
We often buy houses below market value so we can resell them at a profit to another homeowner. Normally we look to obtain a fair discount on the house. However, many sellers are not actually expecting a large ‘windfall’ but, instead, appreciate the fact that we offer cash, close quickly (no waiting for financing), and no expenses or effort to clean or fix up the property. Because we are the buyers, there are no agent’s fees so if a quick cash transaction is what you are looking for and you want to sell your house fast for cash; then we should talk to see if we can arrive at a fair ‘win-win’ price. And, of course, you are under no obligation to accept our offer – take it or leave it. You’ll want to know what our offer is, though, even if, in the end, you decide not to take it. This way you keep all your options open.

Our method is very transparent and straightforward. First, we look at the house’s location; we estimate the repairs needed, consider the condition of the house, and check the value of comparable properties in the area. House prices have taken a big hit over the past five years, and most areas haven’t seen prices come back up as yet. As you can see, we take many bits of data and information into consideration, then come up with a fair price that works for both of us.
The short answer is, ‘NO.’ Not charging fees is why we stand head and shoulders over selling a house using the traditional method. We never charge any fees or commissions when you sell your house to us. We evaluate your property, make you an offer, and if you accept, then we buy your house (we’ll often pay all closing costs, too). There are no hassles and no fees. Our business is to buy houses, make any necessary repairs and fix-ups, if any, then resell it for a profit. We take all the risks when we buy a house because we don’t know if we will be able to resell it for a profit or not. The responsibility is ours, and you walk away from all the property burdens. . . and often with cash in hand.
Real estate agents require a contract after which they list the house hoping someone will come along and buy it. They also show the property to potential buyers who may be looking around the area. (In many markets the average time on the market (time to sell) is averaging 6 to 12 months). Then, if they sell the house, they often collect a commission equal to 3-6% of the sales price. (This means if your house sells for $100,000, you’ll pay the agent a commission of between $3,000 and $6,000.)
If someone can wait for 6-12 months to sell their house and also don’t mind paying the agent a portion of the sales price as commission, then an agent can provide an excellent service. However, we operate differently; we are professional house buyers, not agents. True Cash Homes actually buys houses. We use our own money, pay all cash, and handle all the paperwork. We can do this because we are the ones buying your house. Usually, we can decide to buy your house within a couple of days, often the same day. We can do this because we are professional house buyers and take all the risks. It’s how we earn a living. We buy the house with our cash, repair the house, and then market the house to other homeowners or buyers. In the current market, we have found the hardest part is marketing the repaired house.
You have no obligation when you submit your information – zero. You give us some information about your property, take a look at your situation, set up a call to discuss your situation, then make you an all-cash offer that’s fair for you and fair for us. After that, the decision is 100% yours. You’re under no obligation, we won’t hassle you, and we won’t harass you. It’s totally up to you whether you sell to us or not; we let you decide what’s right for you.
