Frequently Asked Questions
Maybe you have a few questions about selling your house to an investor. That’s okay; most people do. So here’s 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 (or give us a call) and we’ll be happy to answer it for you.
Q: What is the quickest way to sell a house?
A: The fastest way to sell a house is to get a cash offer. Getting a cash offer on your house means you won’t have to wait 30-90 days for the bank to close.
Q: Will you buy my house if it needs repairs?
A: We buy houses in ANY CONDITION.
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: We are not agents, so we do not list the houses. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses in the DFW metroplex that meet our purchasing criteria. Depending on the condition of the house, we may sell it, repair it to then sell to another homeowner or keep it as a rental for ourselves.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: We purchase homes below market value (so we can resell it at a profit to another homeowner). We look for fair discounts on properties. However, in our experience, many sellers aren’t necessarily expecting a large “windfall” on the property but rather appreciate that we can offer cash and close very quickly without having to wait for financing. Your time, effort and money are not required in the fixing up of the property, as well as any agent fees. If that sounds like something you are looking for and understand the value of selling your house fast, let us make you an offer on your home. (Besides, our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you do not have to move forward with the offer we give… but it’s good to know what we’re offering!).

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Great question! Our process is very straightforward. We look at the location of the property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the property, and the 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.
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: There are NO fees or commissions when you sell your house to Happy Buy Homes. We’ll make a cash offer, and if it’s a fit then we’ll buy your house (and we’ll often pay for the closing costs too!). No hassle. No fees. We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house (if any) and sell it for a profit (we’re taking all of the risks here on whether we can sell it for a profit or not, once we buy the house from you… the responsibility is ours and you walk away without the burden of the property and its payments… and often with cash in your hand).
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents list properties in hopes that someone will buy them. The agent shows the properties to prospective buyers if there are any (the average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 6-12 months) 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).
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
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 little 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… and we won’t hassle you, won’t harass you… it’s 100% your decision and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.
