What is a Real Estate Investor?

What Is A Real Estate Investor

Q:  Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A:  Great question! We’re not traditional real estate agents; we are professional home buyers. We buy houses in Southern California for cash that meet our buying criteria.

Q:  Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A:  When we purchase a house, we are looking to get a fair discount on the property. Many of the houses we purchase are below market value because they need expensive repairs or upgrades that the homeowners don’t have the time, energy, or money to make. Our clients come to us knowing they won’t get a large “windfall” for their house. Instead, they appreciate that we can offer cash, we close very quickly with no waiting for financing, and they won’t have to pay any commissions or closing costs.

If this sounds like the right option for you, contact us today. Let’s see if we can come up with a fair price that’s a win-win for both parties. Our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you will never be hassled to move forward with the offer, but it’s good to know what we’re offering!

Q:  How do you determine your offer price?
A:  We assess the location of the property, what repairs and upgrades are needed, the current condition of the property, and the price of comparable houses sold in the area recently. Using this information, we come up with a fair cash price that we hope is a win-win for both of us.

Q:  Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: When you work with Stars and Stripes Real Estate, there are NO closing costs, fees, or agent’s commission to sell your house to us. We provide you with an offer and, if it’s a fit, we’ll buy your house and pay for the closing costs, too.

Q:  How are you different from a traditional real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents list properties and try to entice the right buyer into making an offer. Once the sale is made, they charge you a percentage of the price (which can be as high as 3-6% of the sale price of your house). If you have the time, patience, and money to sell with a traditional agent and possibly make more money on the list price, this route is for you. But if you would prefer a no-hassle sales experience, we can help. We don’t list houses, we are the ones buying the house from you. And because we pay with our own money we can make a decision to buy your property within a couple of days, no matter what the condition.

Q:  Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: Our process is 100% obligation-free. Tell us about your property and we’ll take a look at things. If your home meets our buying criteria, we’ll make you an all-cash offer that’s fair for you and fair for us. From there, it’s your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us. We want you to decide what’s right for you!
