Q: Why are your Phoenix properties discounted so much? Wouldn’t you just keep the best deals for yourself?
A: Great question! It all comes back to a lesson Martin learned while training in Judo for the Olympics: “Find the leverage that takes a small amount of work to get the greatest result.” And our team has done just that: We’ve developed proprietary marketing systems that help us find properties (including properties not even on the market) and get them for a substantial discount. It’s not unheard of to find investment properties on this site discounted from 20% all the way to to 50% off of a comparable market price, thanks to our determination and focus on getting great “hidden” deals. (Our secret is: we’re so focused on helping people that we’re often the go-to source for homeowners who need to sell their homes quickly and would rather get an assured sale with us at a discount than to list their homes and trust the whims of the market! This includes people in foreclosure, those who are downsizing (such as a retiree who is moving into a home and wants to cash the equity out of their house) and more. This helps us acquire properties at a great price so we can pass those discounts on to you. Everybody wins!
Q: How are the properties on this site different from ones that are listed on the MLS?
A: Due to the service we provide, you won’t find most of our properties listed on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service). That’s because we aren’t real estate agents; we don’t represent a homeseller… we are the homeseller! We’re investors who acquire properties from Phoenix homeowners with real estate challenges. As well, we’ve built up a trusted reputation in the business so many homebuyers (especially investors) come to us when they are looking for a property. Therefore, many of our houses are purchased by buyers before they get listed anywhere! (That’s why, if you’re a buyer looking for a home in Phoenix Arizona, you should fill out the form on this page to get access to our latest listings.)
Q: Can I buy these properties with bank financing?
A: In most cases, our buyers are investors who pay cash for their real estate acquisitions, which is why our properties tend to move so quickly. However, if you’re a homebuyer who has been pre-approved by a bank and are able to close very quickly, we’d be happy to work with you. (And if you’re a prospective homebuyer who needs help to find financing for your next property, contact us today and we can connect you with some lenders that we would recommend.)
Q: How can I make an offer on one of your properties that I’m interested in buying?
A: We keep it really simple. Just click over to the , head over to our contact us page and fill out the form, send us an email, or give us a call. All offers are received on a first-come, first-served basis (therefore if you want to reach us really quick, just pick up the phone!) Once we connect with you, we’ll answer any of your questions — that way, you’ll feel totally comfortable working with us as you buy your house. When you’re comfortable moving forward, we’ll require a earnest deposit to secure your offer on that property.
Q: How often do you add new investment properties in Phoenix?
A: We’re constantly searching for new properties that fit our parameters — we’re looking every single day! And we’ll find several potential properties every month, which prompt us to do our due diligence and decide whether we’ll move forward with them. On the ones we choose to move forward with, we repair them and make them available to our VIP buyers (who often acquire them right away) and our site. Be sure to check back often as our properties tend to sell very very quickly.
Q: What fees do you charge to buy or sell a home?
A: If you’re selling your Phoenix home, you might normally pay a fee to sell your home on the market, but you won’t pay a fee if we buy your Phoenix home! If you’re buying a property from us, we add on a property acquisition fee (which is how we earn our money for finding the deal). However, since our properties are purchased at such a steep discount, you’ll still pay a deeply discounted price compared to market prices. We try to keep it win-win for everyone involved!.
