How It Works
Are you looking to sell your home fast? The task may seem daunting at first. But rest assured we take the hassle out of selling your home, and make it easy, fast, and pain-free. You won’t even have to clean your home. That’s where we come in. Within 14 days or less, you will have cash in your hands and a big burden off your back. Let’s take a look at how this process works so that we can get started in helping you.
Step 1- Let’s Talk
Tell us about your property. This step is quick, easy and free. This step can be done over the phone at your convenience.
Step 2 – Meet For A Quick Appointment
We are a local company in Lancaster, Pa, so that means we are available to go over the details in person with you. An appointment will only be scheduled if your house meets our criteria. We don’t want to waste your time. You contacted us to take away the stress and get your house sold fast, with cash in your hands. We respect and honor your time so there will be no lengthy meetings nor obligations.
Step 3 – An Offer Will Be Presented To You
We will give you a no-obligation offer to consider. This offer will be fair, and in writing for your consideration. This offer will be made within 24-48 hours. We will be clear and concise and ready to discuss any questions you may have about the offer.
Step 4 – Fast Closing
We utilize the service of a local reputable title company to get cash in your hands in as little as 14 days.
Often times once we get your information we can have a check in your hands within the week. So that means from the time we get your information to closing, your house could be sold and the burden off your hands within 14 days. The whole process from intake info to cash in your hands may even happen all in one day! Our goal is to have cash in your hands quickly.
This Seems Too Good To Be True. How Is This All Possible?
At 717 Home Buyers we buy houses in and around the Lancaster area (as well as other areas too). We don’t list your house, we buy it outright from you. Because of this, we can close and pay you cash quickly or on your schedule.
When you work with us, you do not pay any fees. Those fees when selling a house the traditional way with a middle man are where you lose money. Agents need money too, but with us, you will not need an agent because we deal directly with you. So in essence, you are selling directly to the buyer, which is us.
One of the biggest bonuses that past customers love, is that we buy your house as-is. That means you don’t have to clean it or pay someone to fix up your home. We don’t care how beautiful or ugly the condition is. We will fix it up after buying it.
We want to be honest upfront on why we are buying your home from you and how we will benefit. In a nutshell, our profit comes from what we sell your home for minus all expenses that we will put into it to make it ready for the market. That includes subtracting the repairs we pay for, cleaning expenses and our selling costs.
Frequently Asked Questions
My house needs major repairs. Should I go ahead and get things fixed first?
Absolutely not. We are here to take your house off your hands from the condition it is in. Once we get the information from you and schedule a meeting, we are already planning on fixing up what needs to be fixed. That means that the big hole in the drywall dining room wall that the dog ran through, is nothing you need to worry about anymore. We have contractors that we work with that will fix that before we list your home for sale. Remember we are here to take your house off your hands quickly in any condition that it is in.
How do you determine the offer amount that you will present to me?
We look at a wide range of information and figure out how much we could realistically resell the house for once we buy it and fix it up. Some of that information includes the location compared to other houses sold in the same area, and how much we will spend to fix repairs and often times remodel it. We also have selling costs that must be subtracted from our profit so we take that into consideration also. We promise a fair deal to you.
It seems that there are always hidden fees when doing business. Are there any fees at all that I need to be aware of?
There are no fees for you. Zero. Zilch. The offer we will present to you is our cash offer, for your house as-is. No hidden fees whatsoever will be added on.
