Frequently Asked Questions

Perhaps you have a few questions. No problem. Lots of people do. We collected some frequently asked questions and our answers. If you read through this webpage and find that you have lingering queries, no problem. Feel free to contact us anytime. We are always happy to hear from potential clients and clarify how we do things for them.

Q:  Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: An excellent question. We do not serve as traditional-style real estate agents. We aren’t in the business of listing houses. We are truly professional home buyers right here in your local area.  We purchase properties fast for cash. So if you want to do yourself a favor and sell an unwanted house fast for a nice big check, contact our team!

Q:  Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A:  It is true that we cannot offer the full retail value that your house could potentially fetch on the open marketplace. We’d like to buy at a nice discount. However, we find that people still find value in our services. If you think that selling your house fast for cash sounds ideal, consider working with us. You can even pick your own closing date and won’t need to wait around for financing to get settled up. You also won’t need to spend a thing to repair the house before you sell it to us. Yes, you won’t even need to clean it up for photographs or open houses! Who knew it could be this easy? Well, the team at Mitten Home Buyer did, but now you do too! Let’s talk about your house soon and see what we’d buy it for.

Q:  How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: This is an excellent question. We are more than happy to explain how it goes. We have a simple process. Our team will consider where your house is, how much work it needs, and what nearby properties have been selling for lately. We will look at all of this together to create your cash offer. We hope that you decide it works for you!

Q:  Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: This is a huge difference between us and a typical house sale. We don’t ever charge a thing in fees or commissions. We will put together your cash offer. If you like it, then we will buy your house on your preferred timeline. We make money after we fix up and resell your house. Once we buy your house, you can walk away and you no longer have to do a thing to fix up or repair the property. We think that everyone deserves to have a low-cost and reasonable option for selling an unwanted house.

Q:  How are you different from a real estate agent?

A real estate agent’s job is to list your house on the marketplace and hope that a good buyer comes along. This can take some serious time and effort! The house will need to be prepared for listing and in tip-top shape. After that comes the fun of going through open houses and viewings. Once your agent finds you a buyer, you’ll need to pay them. They work hard for their money. They earn about 3-6% of your selling price for their commission. This ends up being thousands of dollars. While you can sell your house for a better price by listing it, you’ll have to pay for it too!

This is a great way to sell your house if you can afford to wait months for results. You will also need to sacrifice some of that nice payout on commission. This is where the methods diverge. We aren’t real estate agents that would like to list your house. No, we want to buy your house directly from you, for cash! We can make the choice to buy in mere days. We will fix your house up after you sell it to us, and you can walk away with cash in your hands.

Q:  Is there any obligation when I submit my information?
A: Our offers come with zero obligation at all. All you need to do is request an offer and we will get started on it. We may want to schedule a short phone call to talk about your house too. We will endeavor to make an offer to you that is as generous as possible. It is entirely your call if you’d like to accept or not. We are here to provide available options, never to put pressure on you. We hope that your offer is appealing to you!
