Frequently Asked Questions About the Cash-for-Homes Process in Cincinnati

If I enter my information, am I obligated to sell?

No, entering your information does not mean you have an obligation to sell. However, after an offer is issued, it will only be valid for up to 72 hours. The exact timeframe will depend on the terms you discuss with our acquisitions team.

What kinds of fees will I have to pay when selling my home?

There are NO fees when you work with We Buy Houses Cincinnati to sell your house fast! Because we don’t sell homes using traditional methods, there are no closing costs, agent commissions, or any other fees whatsoever. The fair cash offer we present to you is exactly what you will get in your pocket for your home. 

How is the offering price for my house determined?

Much like a traditional home appraiser, we calculate the offer for your house based on a number of factors. We take into account the home’s overall condition, its layout and size, and the market value of other properties in the neighborhood. We Buy Houses Cincinnati buys houses in any condition, so although we factor necessary repairs into our appraisal, you don’t ever have to worry about not getting an offer at all.

What do you do with the home after you purchase it?

As cash home buyers who invest in Ohio real estate, our goal is to improve properties and earn a profit from them. In some cases, we rent out the homes we purchase. In others, we make some repairs and renovations and then resell the homes. 

Can I sell my home if I am behind on the mortgage?

Yes, and in fact, we frequently purchase houses from homeowners who are behind on their mortgage payments or facing foreclosure. Since We Buy Houses pays cash for homes, you can sell your house fast and use the money to catch up on the mortgage and get out from underneath that debt. 

How long does it take to sell my home?

One of the biggest benefits of working with We Buy Houses Cincinnati is that you get to sell your house fast. While most home sales are closed within a week or so, we can usually accommodate sellers who need to sell even sooner than that or who may need a bit longer. We’ve sped up the process to have everything finalized in as little as a few days, and we’ve also slowed things down to allow sellers a few weeks to tie up loose ends.

Do I have to move out right after selling my house?

No. While part of our process is to help you sell your house fast, another equally important part of it is to make selling a home stress-free for you. Even after you’ve accepted our cash offer for your home, we’ll work with you to make sure you have sufficient time to move or make other arrangements. If at any point you have questions, or if your situation changes, just reach out to us, and together we’ll come up with the best option.

Can I sell my house if I live out of state?

Yes, and we frequently work with homeowners who live out of state but own property in Ohio. Between phone calls, the internet, and snail mail, we can work with you to complete your home sale from just about anywhere. 

What types of houses do you buy?

When we say we buy houses in Cincinnati and throughout Ohio, we really mean it! As cash home buyers, we purchase houses of all types, no matter their condition. If you have a historic home in serious disrepair, a modern condo that needs work, a home already in foreclosure, a home that isn’t completed yet, or even a condemned house, We Buy Houses Cincinnati is interested in buying it! Call us or contact us today to sell your house fast — for cash.
