FAQ on Selling Your Atlanta Home for Cash
If I enter my information, am I obligated to sell?
No. We make zero-commitment offers on homes. You are never obligated to sell until after you sign your title over to us. That happens long after you agree to our offer. You also will not face high-pressure sales tactics. At Sell My House Fast Atlanta, we regularly buy houses in the Atlanta, GA area. If there is a mutual deal that works for us, that’s great. If not, there are no hard feelings.
What kinds of fees will I have to pay when selling my home?
If you sell through a realtor, there are countless fees, and they can add up to more than 10% of the final sale price. With us, there are no hidden fees at all. We handle title fees, appraisal costs, and all the rest. We won’t hassle you over nitpicky repairs. We take care of all of it. We account for all the fees when we calculate our offer. All you have to do is decide whether it’s right for you.
How is the offering price for my house determined?
We use the same methods as anyone else in real estate. We will look at your house’s floor plan, the condition, the neighborhood, and market conditions. Atlanta homes in excellent condition and nice areas will get a higher cash offer than condemned houses, but we buy both. After comparing all those factors, we calculate what we believe to be a fair offer.
What do you do with the home after you purchase it?
In most cases, we either sell or rent out the property after some renovations. We invest time and money into the home we buy from you and make changes to raise its potential for the next family that will live there. Whether we sell or rent depends on many factors.
Can I sell my home if I am behind on the mortgage?
Yes. In fact, selling your home if you’re behind on payments is sometimes the best way to get out from under a mortgage. We regularly work with homeowners in the process of foreclosure. The money you get from selling to us will help you settle the mortgage so that you can reset your finances.
How long does it take to sell my home?
We typically purchase houses in two weeks or less. If you’re in a hurry, we can get things done in a few days. If you’re not in a hurry, we’ll let you dictate the pace. We don’t need to rush you. We just want you to have an easy sale when you’re ready.
Do I have to move out right after selling my house?
No. Before we finalize the contract, we’ll work with you to pick a move-out date. It does not have to be the same day you get your cash for the house. We want to make this process easy and low stress. Giving you time to move is a part of that. There are many routes we can take to ensure you aren’t rushed out of the home. If you need a fast sale, we can close quickly and then work with your timeline for moving.
Can I sell my house if I live out of state?
You most definitely can. At Sell My House Fast Atlanta, we work with out-of-state homeowners regularly. In fact, it’s one of our advantages. We know the ins and outs of home sales in the Atlanta, GA area. If you’re out of state, let us know. We can schedule a walkthrough at your convenience and handle most of the process remotely — without adding time to the sale. Since we typically take care of the paperwork and the overall process, working with out-of-state owners is no problem.
What types of houses do you buy?
We buy all types of houses, and we mean that. We buy brand-new houses, houses that have been in the neighborhood forever, condemned houses, and everything in between. No matter the house, if you want to sell it, we can help. Simply fill out the contact form, and we’ll take it from there.
