Cash Home Buyers Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have any questions about how we work? That’s understandable. Plenty of people do when they come across cash home buyers for the first time. To help you out, we have compiled a list of FAQs for USA Cash Offer as well as our answers to those FAQs. If you have a question you don’t see on this page, feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to clarify things for you.
Q: Do you list homes or purchase them yourselves?
A: That’s a good question. USA Cash Offer neither lists nor buys properties. Instead, we connect homeowners with reputable real estate investors in their area who will purchase their homes for cash. There is no listing to worry about. If your home meets the investor’s buying criteria, they will purchase your house and either resell it later or keep it as a rental property.
Q: Do investors pay fair prices?
A: Many of the homes investors purchase are well below their expected market value, which is ideal for investors who are looking to buy properties for a reasonable price. Often, in these situations, sellers are not expecting to make a high profit on the home they’re selling. Instead, they’re looking for a fast, convenient way to get rid of their homeownership hassles. Investors offer to buy houses at no cost to the seller, and the selling process often proceeds very quickly. If that’s what you’re looking for, an investor is likely going to be a great option for you.
Remember, there is no obligation involved in getting a cash offer. It’s worth seeing what sort of price you can sell your home for.

Q: How do investors determine their offers?
A: Coming up with an offer is a straightforward process for home investors. They look at the home in question’s location, determine what repairs are needed, take the home’s current condition in mind, and gather information on the prices that similar homes have sold for. From there, the investor will compare these values to come up with the fairest possible offer on the home they’re hoping to buy.
Q: Do I need to pay any fees to work with you?
A: No, none at all. We do not collect any fees from homeowners when we refer them to investors in their area. Additionally, when you work with investors in our network, there are no fees or commissions involved in that sale. The investor will cover all aspects of the sale and when you are made an offer on your home, that is the exact cash payout you receive.
Investors make their money after they purchase your home. They make repairs and sell the home for a profit later, so taking on the risk is their job. Once you have sold your home, any responsibility or financial burden to it is no longer yours to bear.
Q: How do you differ from a real estate agent?
A: Agents list properties for a fee and they work to find someone who will buy the home. Agents help stage properties and then show homes to prospective buyers and if an individual decides to buy the home, a realtor will take a percentage of the sale price as their commission (which is usually 3-6% of the sale price).
They’re a great choice for people who have the time and money needed to sell a home through this method, but they’re not ideal for every homeowner’s situation.
That’s where investors come in. An investor does not list homes, does not stage, and does not perform showings. Cash buyers will simply examine the property once, make a fair cash offer on the property, and from there, the sale can close in as little as a week because investors can skip all of the other hassles associated with home sales. They require absolutely no fees, cleaning, or repairs to get rid of a home.
Q: Is there any obligation to work with an investor?
A: You’re under no obligation at all. Once you submit your information, an investor will reach out to you to complete the evaluation process. If the offer they make you does not fit your needs, you can simply decline and that will be the end of it. It’s your decision from there. The investor will not hassle or pressure you to reconsider.
