Frequently asked questions about selling a house to us
How does the process work when selling my house to you?
Selling your home quickly with Joe Buys Houses is easy.
First, connect with us and leave your contact information. We will contact you and set up a time convenient to you for us to see the house and find out what your needs are.
We will then present you with solutions that we think will work for you. If you like one of our offers we will draw up a contract.
Then we will proceed to finalize the purchase and you will receive your money for the property. Congratulations!
The entire process can happen very quickly if that’s your goal.
How do you differ from a real estate agent?
Real estate agents try to find a buyer for your home. How long this process takes depends on the market at the time, as well as the location and condition of your home.
If the agent finds a buyer for your home he will take a significant percentage (usually 3-6%) of the sale price of your house.
Typically the closing process is slower when you’re working with an agent because the buyer may have trouble with their financing or their lender may require repairs be made to the house.
If you want a quick solution without all the fees and without needing to make any repairs, contact us today. We are not real estate agents, we are home buyers!
My house needs a lot of repairs, will you still buy it?
Yes we will! We regularly buy houses in Chicago and Surrounding Areas that are in need of some TLC. No matter what the level of repairs needed, we are interested in purchasing your property. We can buy your home no matter what the condition and you will not face any of the delays often encountered with a regular property sale.
How long does it take to get a quick fair offer?
Our business model involves buying houses quickly. We will contact you within 1-2 business days.
How long does it take to sell my house and get the money?
We have the financial backing and all the resources necessary to purchase your home and release the funds to you quickly.
This process is determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on your needs. If you need to make the sale happen immediately then by all means talk to us.
We do our best to work with your timelines.
Are there any fees if I sell my house to you?
No, you are not charged any fees when you sell your property to us. Because there are no agents or middlemen involved you are not required to pay any percentages or commissions. We get paid by our buyers when they buy a property from us. We are your cash buyer and because you are selling directly to us you save thousands in fees.
If I request an offer from you, am I obligated to sell you my house?
There is absolutely no obligation! If you request an offer and decide not to proceed that is no problem. We understand that our solution is not the perfect fit for everyone. There are no hard feelings if you decide not to take our offer.
What if there is a tenant living in my property?
If your property has a tenant, even with a lease, this is not a problem. Most likely we will still make an offer for your property.
