Frequently Asked Questions
We’re guessing you have a few questions. That’s great! Most people do. Here’s a collection of some of our most asked questions. We hope you find it helpful. Thought of something we haven’t covered? Contact us, We’re happy to help!
A: Once we have some basic information on your property, a member of our team will contact you shortly
with a cash offer (usually within 24 hours). In some situations, we will need to gather additional
information about the condition of the home. Once complete, we will discuss all the details with you and
make an offer the same day. If you accept, we will handle everything else, navigating the closing process
from start to finish.
Q: What sort of houses do you buy?
A: We buy houses in any condition, in any area, in any price range, in any situation! We will buy your house as-is – you don’t need to do ANY repairs! We love to revitalize communities, customizing properties from the ground up so condition does not matter to us. Whether your house is in foreclosure, over-leveraged, condemned, has liens or health department violations, not maintained, fire damaged, or about to fall down – WE CAN BUY IT!
A: You bet! Shortsleeves Real Estate is a professional real estate solutions company with years of experience in solving these difficult situations. We are connected with attorneys who are very well versed in foreclosures, bankruptcy, and short sales. We are happy to connect you to any one of them.
Q: What will your service cost me?
A: Nothing! This is what makes us stand out from the traditional method of selling your house: We do not charge you any fees to discuss your situation. We’ll make you an offer, and if it’s a fit then we’ll buy your house with no fees, commissions or closing costs out of your of your pocket.
A: Great question, and we’re an open book: Our process is very straightforward. We look at the location of the property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the property, and values of comparable houses sold in the area recently. We take many pieces of information into consideration… and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too.
A: Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them. The agent shows the properties to prospective buyers if there are any and then take a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 3-6% of the sale price of your house (so if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay between $3,000 – $6,000 in commissions to an agent). Agents provide a great service for those that can wait 6-12 months to sell and who don’t mind giving up some of that sale price to pay for the commissions. But that’s where we’re different: We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. Our company actually buys houses. We don’t list houses. Since we’re actually the one buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash… we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple of days (sometimes the same day). Again, we make our living by taking the risk to buy the house with our own cash, repair the house, and market it ourselves to find a buyer (which is the hard part in this market).
A: There is absolutely zero obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll take a look at things, maybe set up a call with you to find out a bit more, and make you an all-cash offer that’s fair for you and fair for us. From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us. We won’t hassle you, won’t harass you.
A: ABSOLUTELY 100%! Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. Any information you provide is completely confidential! If you want to deal with a reliable, reputable company who will treat you with professionalism, understanding, and respect – YOU HAVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!
A: YES! Referrals are our number one means of purchasing property. Maybe there is a vacant house on your street or you know someone who needs and wants to sell their home, please refer them to us! Better yet, provide us their information and we will do all the research and make an offer. Contact us directly to discuss the terms.
