Frequently Asked Questions

1. How is using Creative House Offer different from selling my house with the help of a realtor?

A real estate agent facilitates the sale of your house through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), a tool aimed at maximizing exposure to potential buyers. This process commonly involves enduring multiple walkthroughs over weeks or months until the ideal buyer is found. Upon sale, expenses such as title fees, closing costs, and the agent’s commission come into play.

As investors, we promptly purchase houses with cash or connect with buyers who do the same. After rehab, we put the house on the market, and sell it for a profit. Selling to us includes coverage of inspection and closing costs, zero commission charges, and a cash payment to you. This bypasses the necessity for an agent, thereby reducing additional expenses. Ultimately, you experience a faster sale and minimal hassle.

2. How do I know this is the best course of action for me?

Engaging an agent to sell your house typically it’s a long and stressful process that involves inspections, repairs, and a constant flow of visitors touring your home. The initially set asking price may fluctuate considering the adjustments for repairs and additional expenses that either you or the buyer agree to undertake.

On the other hand, we review your situation and cover all the future expenses involved in selling your property. That allows us to offer you a fair price and take it off your hands right away.

Even if your house is in impeccable condition, it remains an excellent choice for those seeking a swift selling process. Upon evaluating your property, we offer guidance on whether listing with an agent aligns better with your needs.

3. How does it work?

We streamline the selling process by cutting out middlemen, like realtors, lenders, appraisers, and inspectors, offering cash for properties—be it a house, condo, apartment, or land—regardless of condition or location. Our approach is quick and hassle-free. Here’s our simple process:

Firstly, we conduct a comprehensive market analysis (CMA) to determine your property’s value post-renovation, aligning with modern HGTV standards. Then, we visit the property to evaluate necessary repairs and estimate the costs associated with buying and selling your home.

To sustain our business, we factor in a reasonable profit margin. Our aim is to keep this margin minimal, ensuring everyone involved benefits from a great deal. We prioritize serving many clients with smaller profits rather than favoring a select few at the owner’s expense. Transparency is key for us, and we provide you with a total breakdown.

With us, you can skip expenses, the inconvenience of walkthroughs, open houses, multiple inspections, and enduring lengthy listings with an agent. For further inquiries and a comprehensive understanding of our all-cash, as-is transaction process, explore our “How it Works” page, or feel free to reach out by calling or texting us at (843) 410-3050.

4. Why should I choose your company?

Our values revolve around trust and transparency, attributes we take immense pride in offering you. We meticulously outline every financial aspect using clear-cut mathematics, ensuring you understand precisely the rationale behind our offered price and the projected profit margin. Rest assured, our aim is to provide you with the highest feasible payment.

We provide a comprehensive overview of the time and monetary savings accrued by selling your house to us. Our commitment to honesty and fairness has earned us an outstanding reputation.

5. What do you do with my house once you buy it?

Upon acquiring your property, our process involves initiating refurbishments by addressing essential repairs and remodeling to elevate the house to HGTV standards. We collaborate with an agent to list and sell the property, covering all associated costs, including repairs, closing fees, and commissions.

The profit generated from this process enables us to sustain our operations, aiding more clients in achieving a hassle-free selling experience for their homes. Our contribution extends beyond individual transactions; we take pride in uplifting communities and the economy by enhancing the value of neighborhoods across the state.

6. How many houses do you buy?

We purchase multiple houses, enabling us to extend the best possible price to you. Our approach focuses on smaller profit margins, amplified through collaborations with numerous clients, resulting in a collective benefit for all involved. This strategy allows us to assist more individuals and contribute positively to the communities we serve. In cases where we don’t directly purchase your house, one of our investment partners steps in. These partners are experienced professionals within the house flipping industry. Additionally, we engage local, esteemed attorneys during the closing process, ensuring a smooth and expeditious selling experience for you.

7. How is the price you pay for my house determined?

Initially, we assess the after-repair value (ARV) of your property, which indicates its potential market value post-renovation, once we’ve completed the necessary work subsequent to the purchase. Our specialist conducts an in-depth evaluation of your home, calculating the essential repair and refurbishment costs.

Following this, we factor in selling expenses. While you bypass the use of an agent by selling to us, we engage an agent to list the property after purchase, covering all holding, closing costs, fees, taxes, and commission, typically amounting to approximately 10% of the ARV.

Subsequently, we deduct repair, refurbishment, and selling costs from the ARV and include our minimal profit to derive the fair price we offer you. This figure often closely aligns with what you might receive through traditional house selling methods, once you deduct the supplementary expenses typically incurred when using an agent. However, with us, you receive cash faster, without the typical challenges associated with agent-led house sales and listings. This process can often take several months before finding a legitimate buyer, whereas we streamline the transaction.

8. Do you pay a fair price?

Maintaining our esteemed reputation and integrity is important to us, hence we ensure to always offer a fair price. Our approach involves transparent and straightforward calculations, where we meticulously outline each step. This breakdown allows you to track every dollar and comprehend the rationale behind our offered price.

The equation we employ involves starting with the market value post-repairs and rehabilitation subsequent to purchase. We then deduct the expenses associated with those repairs, improvements, and all selling costs. From the remaining balance, we add our modest commission to arrive at the cash offer we extend to you for your house.

9. Do I need to clean my house before you buy it?

The good news is, you’re not required to clean or repair any aspect of your house. Simply leave it as is, and we’ll handle everything after purchasing your home. This convenience is one of the perks that our clients truly appreciate when selling through this process.

10. Will you still buy my house if it is in poor condition?

Yes, Absolutely! House flipping is part of our business model. Our plan involves making repairs and enhancements to elevate the market value of the property post-purchase. In doing so, we spare you the hassle of managing these tasks yourself, ultimately resulting in a comparable selling price without enduring lengthy procedures.

Typically, we request about a month to close the transaction, although there are instances where this process concludes in as little as two or three weeks. Our priority is to streamline the selling process for you, making it as easy and efficient as possible.

11. Wouldn’t it be easier to list my house with an agent on MLS?

While utilizing an agent and listing your property on multiple platforms might seem like a viable option in certain scenarios, it often leads to a protracted and inconvenient process. This approach entails continuous visits from prospective buyers, accommodating appraisers and inspectors, and frequently necessitates repairs on your end to achieve the desired selling price.

Though refurbishments may potentially escalate your asking price, the associated costs can emerge as a burden, requiring funds from your own pocket.

The endurance of weekend open houses and the apprehension of potentially reducing your price after weeks or months of little progress can induce considerable stress. Furthermore, finalizing the deal with a buyer can take several weeks.

We provide a swift and hassle-free solution, offering the desired cash for your home, allowing you to swiftly move forward with your life, free from these concerns.

12. Will you list my house on the MLS?

No, our approach doesn’t involve listing our clients’ houses on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). We don’t operate as agents seeking buyers for your house; rather, we are the buyers ourselves. Collaborating with your input, we ascertain the most favorable offer and present it to you. Our responsibility spans the entire process, commencing from the initial stages through to the conclusion. Once we acquire your home, necessary repairs are undertaken, followed by resale for a profit. Simultaneously, you receive an immediate cash payment. We provide you with a comprehensive breakdown of the calculations involved in arriving at this amount, ensuring you feel assured and content with the outcome.

13. Should I just list my house with an agent?

Opting to list with an agent can be a suitable choice, contingent upon your timeline and the extent of work and repairs your house requires. However, the conventional route often evolves into a trying and demanding process. Showings, inspections, and weeks can extend into protracted months before securing a buyer. Moreover, there’s the risk of their financing falling through, reverting you back to the initial stages.

For those in need of a swift sale, seeking to sidestep the associated hassles, and aiming to promptly receive cash, Creative House Offer fulfills these requirements.

Our process begins with understanding your home and its location, enabling us to determine its highest market value.

Moreover, our streamlined process allows us to close the deal in as little as 21 days. This means you swiftly receive cash without enduring the lengthy waiting periods or hassles associated with engaging an agent and listing your house.

15. Do I have to pay fees and commissions if I work with you?

With us, there are no fees or commissions as we don’t operate as realtors. Any fees or commissions come into play when we subsequently sell the house after purchasing it from you. Our pricing process involves three straightforward steps: firstly, determining the market value; secondly, assessing repairs, rehabilitation, and selling costs alongside profit calculations; and finally, presenting the offer. Once you approve, we collaborate to select a closing date and complete the essential paperwork with a trusted local attorney. This efficient process enables you to sell your house swiftly and receive cash.
