Who typically sells houses to Home Scout?2019-05-15T15:52:48-06:00

Many people, in different stages of life choose to sell to Home Scout, but they share one thing–they want to sell quickly, on their schedule, to someone they can trust. A few of the reasons people choose to sell to us include: selling an inherited property, selling a property with problem renters, relocating for job, going through divorce, facing possible foreclosure, not wishing to deal with severe repair issues, needing to move quickly.

Do you just buy ugly homes? What about “pretty” houses?2019-01-14T13:01:39-07:00

While we often purchase “fixer-uppers”, we do buy homes in good repair too. We are interested in investment homes, whether they need a little work or a lot.

Do you buy homes in poor condition?2019-05-15T15:53:03-06:00

Absolutely. We are happy to purchase homes in any condition–no matter how bad. This is one of the top reasons people trust Home Scout when they need to sell their home quickly.

What happens if you make an offer on my home but I’m not ready to sell?2019-05-15T15:53:37-06:00

We understand. We would still love to purchase your home. Your offer will be valid for 30 days. If you would like to sell it after this time, feel free to contact us for an updated offer.

If my property is currently rented, will you buy it?2018-09-30T16:01:23-06:00

Yes, we would love to purchase your rental property. Give us a call and let us discuss the options with you.

Am I under obligation if I arrange a visit or request an offer?2018-09-30T15:58:31-06:00

No, you are never under any obligation to sell. We’d love to make an offer and see if it would be something that works for you.

What types of properties will you buy?2019-04-21T08:21:06-06:00

We buy single family homes as well as condos, townhouses, duplexes and many other types of properties. We purchase many types of houses–with the exception of mobile homes. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call and ask, we’d be happy to let you know whether we can make an offer on your home.

How do you determine what you will offer for my house?2019-01-14T13:01:07-07:00

We look at many things before making our offer. First, we look at comparable homes in the area, the condition of your home, what work would need to be done to your home to get it up to prime reselling condition, how long we anticipate holding on to the home before we are able to resell it and other details. We want to give you as much as we possibly can, even when we look at your property as an investment.

Do I pay closing costs?2019-05-15T15:53:57-06:00

We are able to cover typical closing costs on most sales. You will get more information on this with your offer.

Will you buy my home if it is already listed with an agent?2019-04-21T08:21:55-06:00

It can be tricky when there is a contract in place with an agent, but we will definitely work with you on this. We’ll look at all of the options and see what would be most beneficial to you before making our offer.

Do you pay market value for my home?2019-05-15T15:54:05-06:00

We are investors. Our goal is to buy properties that need work or have other issues holding them back and do the work needed to re-sell and turn a profit. While we do purchase homes at a discount, we are providing YOU a service and saving you money on closing costs, repairs, realtor commissions and other expenses. Keeping this in mind, our purchase model is often a great deal for many sellers.
