Frequently Asked Questions

How much money will I get?

Our house-buying advisers are experts in the real estate market in your area. As detailed-oriented Nerds, we keep up to date and can make a quick property analysis that will result in a fair price based on your location, square footage, number of bedrooms and baths, amenities, renovations needed and the condition of your property. We make cash offers with no closing costs and quick timeline. You get the full cash amount offered.

Why is it fast and easy?

You deal directly with us, the buyers. No middlemen or agents means no commissions or time-consuming marketing of your property. This speeds up the process significantly. Additionally, since we pay cash there are never delays from banks over financing and your deal with us will never “fall out of escrow.” Because of this, we can close in a matter of days with no closing costs on your end.  

Why shouldn’t I hire an agent?

We are not against agents! If you are willing to pay up to 6% in agent commissions plus closing costs, and have the time to list your property the traditional way, we support it. It may take weeks or months to market your house, require extensive cleanup and repairs, and you may go through several buyers before one “sticks.” All of this adds time, expense, and aggravation that you won’t have to deal with when you sell it to The Nerds.

What kind of houses do you buy?

All kinds. We buy single-family houses, apartment buildings, commercial buildings, manufactured homes, and mobile homes.

What are the terms?

Quite simple. You call us to set up a home visit. We come out and gather information on your property so we can make an evaluation. We then make a non-contingent cash offer. You accept or reject the offer. If you accept, the deal can close as quickly as you need. Easy!

What kind of people sell their houses to you?

All kinds of people, from all walks of life, at any age, in all different scenarios. We buy houses from people who want to sell quickly and conveniently in any number of circumstances. 

Overall, we buy from anyone who wants a fast and stress-free sale to a reputable buyer who will give them a fair price!

A few reasons to sell to Home Buying Nerds include:

  • Going through a divorce
  • Unable to sell through an agent
  • Houses that need massive repairs
  • Tired of dealing with bad tenants
  • Inheriting a house that is too far away to deal with or needs extensive repairs
  • Houses that need to be sold through probate
  • Falling behind on mortgage payments and facing potential foreclosure
  • Needing to relocate due to a job transfer
  • Death of a loved one
  • Needing to liquidate assets in order to pay off medical bills,legal fees, or consumer debt, etc.
  • Many more!

What if I don’t fit into any of those categories?

We are open to all sellers. As house-buying nerds, we are interested in any house no matter its condition. If your house is in good shape or only needs minimal work, we can still make an all cash offer that will allow you to close fast and move on with no hassles or complications.

Do you buy from sellers who need a short sale?

Yes. As real estate nerds, we have mastery of the short sale and foreclosure process. We know how to negotiate with your lender to get a quick sale.

What if my house is really rundown?

No problem! We buy houses that would scare off most buyers. We are experts at renovation.  

What are your fees?

We have no fees! We cover usual closing costs that are normally part of the seller’s responsibility in traditional agency sales.

What obligation is there in contacting you?

None. We don’t charge you for coming out to your property to make an evaluation or for making you a cash offer. It’s up to you whether you accept or reject our offer. No questions asked.
