Believe it or not, the majority of sellers we have purchased houses in Austin from were not desperate to sell (at all), nor were they trying to escape foreclosure.  Most of our clients choose us simply because they either have had bad experiences with listing their house with an agent, or they just don’t want to deal with repairs, constant walk-throughs, or any hassle one experiences selling a house the traditional way.

Because we buy houses in any condition, as-is, no matter the circumstance, location or issue you facing (if any), we often are a great option to consider to sell quickly, and with ease.

Let us figure out the numbers and how much we can offer you in cash for your Austin home, and we will advise you if listing with an agent would be a better choice or not. After all, it doesn’t hurt to get an offer from us, our offers are completely free without any obligation to accept!

Honestly, you absolutely do not have to choose us!

We are not desperate.  We do not need to make a huge profit on each deal. By all means, do not let me tell you why you should choose us.

We will not list your house on the MLS. We are not agents.  Our intention is to buy your house in cash, and rehab it in case any work needs to be done on it, and sell it again at a profit. We have many solutions to buying your house, including seller financing, wholesaling and of course buying it for cash. All this ensures you will get your house sold fast!

An agent does not actually buy your house. Agents market your house on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), in hopes a buyer will be interested. Agents charge commissions and fees. Listing your house in Austin with an agent means you pay closing costs, title fees, and have to tolerate countless walkthroughs while the house is on the market which can be a long time.

We are two people with the cash and connections to other cash buyers interested in buying houses, rehab them, and put it back on the market for sale for a profit. We are cash buyers and investors. We are the ones actually buying your house. We skip the entire “agent” process and jump immediately to the offer and closing on your property you have for sale in Austin. We cover the conventional expenses associated with selling a house like closing costs and inspections. The most notable difference is that we do not charge you any fees or commissions. As mentioned, we skip the entire “agent” process.

Should I list or Sell with an agent?

If you fill in our form we will tell you how much we can offer you, and we will figure out from that if you are better off listing with an agent or sell to us.
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Simply tell us a bit about your house. With this information, we will do a market analysis on your house that will be used to present you with an all cash offer. If you accept that offer all there is left to do is receive your money at closing.

For more information visit  our “How Do I Sell My Austin House Fast“page if you have not done so already.

Nope. Don’t worry about anything. Take whatever it is you want to take and leave the rest. And we mean it. Food in the fridge, clothes on the floor, mattresses, desks, furniture, whatever you want! Gave our contractor a good scare but we don’t judge. Believe me, when we say, we have seen it all. So why not make things easier and just take what you don’t want to part with and let us deal with the rest?

There is no money out of your pocket. All fees are paid by us (we get it back when we sell the rehabbed house to another buyer).

Very good question. Yes we definitely pay fair prices. But please know there is a difference between a fair price and market value. If the house is in bad shape, we take the market value of the house and subtract all the cost of repairs needed and we come up with number that obviously is a fair price. In some special cases we can present highly competitive offers at market value. However, usually those cases do not allow us to pay all cash. Seller financing is one such of such cases.
