Frequently Asked Questions

Maybe you have a few questions. That’s okay; most people do. Here is a quick collection of some of the questions people ask us, along with our answers. If you still have a question, don’t hesitate to contact us anytime. We would be happy to answer it for you.

Q:  Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A:  Great question. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers and we purchase properties quickly and for cash. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another homeowner or keep it as a rental ourselves.

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Great question, and we’re transparent about our process. We assess the location of the property, necessary repairs, current condition, and the value of comparable houses recently sold in the area. By analyzing this data, we arrive at a fair price that benefits both parties. If you’re located in Massachusetts, feel free to contact 978 Cash Buyers at 978-529-3606 for a personalized evaluation.

Q:  Are there any fees or commissions to work with us?
A: This is what sets us apart from the traditional method of selling your house: there are NO fees or commissions when you sell your house directly to us. We will provide you with an offer, and if it meets your needs, we will purchase your property with no hassles and no fees. In many cases, we even cover the closing costs. Our profit comes after we handle any necessary repairs and successfully sell the property. We take on the risks associated with selling the house for a profit. Once we acquire your property, the responsibility shifts to us, allowing you to walk away without the property’s burdens or payments, and with cash in hand.

Q: How are we different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents typically list properties with the hope of finding a buyer, a process that can take 6-12 months in many markets. They show properties to potential buyers and earn a commission, usually ranging from 3 to 6% of the sale price (e.g., $3,000 to $6,000 for a $100,000 property).

Agents offer a valuable service for those willing to wait and pay commissions. However, our approach sets us apart. We aren’t agents – we are direct home buyers. Our company purchases houses directly from sellers for cash. This enables us to provide a quick decision, sometimes within a day. We take on the risk by buying with our funds, handling repairs, and managing the sales process independently.

Q: In what kinds of situations would selling to a cash buyer be more advantageous than listing it with an agent.
A: Every situation is different and we’ll look at your situation with a goal of creating an offer that suits your unique situation. Cash buyer transactions are as-is transactions, so if you have a property that is distressed or has physical issues that affect its livability, that does not affect our ability to get you a quick fair cash offer. Conversely, if you listed a distressed house on the market, it is often the case that banks will not loan on these kinds of properties, and most on-market buyers need loans to buy houses. So there is always the chance that if you list a house like this, you might not find many buyers, or if you do find one, it’s possible the bank financing might fall through in the middle of the selling process when the bank learns of the condition of the property.

Certain other situations like foreclosure, probate, divorce, liens, or evictions, might necessitate a fast transaction with a cash buyer as well, and it’s often the case that on-market transaction are not fast. Cash home buyers like us can close on your property in 10 days or less and get you the cash you need to move on from liens, foreclosures, evictions, or divorce. If you’re a personal representative navigating probate, a quick cash transaction can be vital to settle your loved one’s debts and estate expenses.

Q: Is a cash offer price typically less than an on-market price?
A: This depends on a number of factors, but generally – yes – a cash offer price is typically less than the price one would receive listing their house. One reason is that a cash offer is eliminating the fees, realtor commissions, and seller-paid closing costs that are deducted from the on-market sale price which can often be around 10%. So if you sell a house on-market for $100,000, you would take home $90,000 after those deductions. Another reason a cash offer is typically lower than an on-market offer is that it comes with speed and convenience – the speed of a much faster transaction that can put cash in your pocket in 10 days, and the convenience of not having to deal with repairs or other issues related to the property like liens or problem tenants.

Q: What if the cash offer is too low?
A: Please communicate that to us and we can come up with a solution. Our team specializes in creative purchase options that can leverage seller financing, or sometimes we’ll partner with the seller where we pay for repairs to be done on the property, we list the property on the market, and you collect your funds at closing which can often be more than you’ll receive in a quick cash offer.

Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my information?
A: Rest assured, you are under no obligation whatsoever. Once you provide details about your property, we will evaluate the information, possibly arrange a call to gather more insights, and present you with a fair all-cash offer. The decision to sell your house is entirely up to you. We respect your choice and want you to make the decision that best suits your needs.
