First of all, we can close a deal really really fast. Like, in less than 30 days fast or maybe even less depending on your needs, whereas hiring a real estate agent would normally take several months. In addition, selling your house to a cash buyer will save you money because you don’t have to pay for a realtors commission, house repairs or closing costs. So basically, we buy your house when you want us to, for cash, as is!
Does Cash/Direct Buyers Pay fair price?
To be honest, the cash offer we give to you is less than market value. Yes, it’s a low offer but in return you don’t pay any commissions or closing costs. Those two alone can account for $30,000 on a $300,000 dollar home! No commissions, zero fees plus for free we will throw in no hassle and no stress. In addition we will save you money because by selling your property fast you don’t have to keep paying for the mortgage and interest, insurance, utilities and taxes. So what are you waiting for? There is absolutely no obligation to sell to us if you call. We will discuss what you need to sell your house and if you choose to we can continue to chat or you can look elsewhere.

Can I Save money for the commissions and fees if I sell my house to you?
Definitely! In fact, you will not spend a single penny on commissions or closing costs. We deal with all the closing costs for you and we even pay a Title company to do it all properly. If you like you can even choose your own title company. We check out the property and as long as it is what you say it is we will close with cash. What we agree on as the offer is what we will pay you! We do not charge you any fees at all.
How do you come up with a fair price for my property?
There are few things to consider before we make an offer for a particular property. First of all, we will check the location of the property. We will verify the current condition, does it need mild or serious repairs, and we also check the recent sales value of the nearby properties. Once we have all of this information we use technology, and a little local knowledge, to come up with the most we can pay.
Once I provide my info and get the cash offer will I be obligated to sell?
Definitely Not! There is no obligation at all. Once we’re done checking your property and come up with an offer then it’s totally up to you whether to accept or decline the offer we gave you. The decision is yours! We’re all about helping homeowners, not harassing them. You are totally in control throughout the entire process.

If I sell inherited property do I have to pay tax?
The short answer is yes you do and you should always consult a tax professional when it comes time to ensure you do everything correctly.
Now the more useful answer is that if you inherit a house and then sell it you pay capital gains tax based on what the house was worth at the time you inherited it.
For example, if you inherit a house worht $100,000 and you sell it 3 years later you will be charged the current (the rate on the day you sell it) capital gains tax rate on $100,000.
Capitals gains tax is broken down into short term and long term capital gains.
Short term capital gains tax is applied when you own an asset for less than 1 year.
Long term capital gains is applied to any asset you sell that you owned fo rmore than a year.
Short term capital gians tax on inherited houses is calculated on where your inclome puts you in the federal tax bracket. In laymnas terms its treated like money that you were paid from your job.
Long term capital gains tax rates, when selling inherited property, are o%, 15% and 20%. Long term capital gains rates are normally lower than short term. Therefore many proffesionals might suggest that you hold the inheritance for a year.
HOwever that would mean paying taxes, insurance and for maintenace and repiars during that period. Understanding the math takes some time but is worth it.
