Great question. We don’t list houses. We are professional Buying Unlovely Houses: We buy houses that meet our purchasing criteria. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another home owner, investor or keep it as a rental ourselves.

21. How Are You Different From A Real Estate Agent?

Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them. The agent shows the properties to prospective buyers if there are any (the average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 3-12 months) and then take a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is around 6% of the sale price of your house. Agents provide a great service for those that can wait months to sell and don’t mind the commissions. But that’s where we are different: We’re not looking to be agents, we’re home buyers bringing solutions to sellers. Our company actually buys unlovely houses. Again, we make our living by taking the risk to buy the house, repair the house, sell it to and investor or market it ourselves to find a buyer.
