FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to our FAQ page! Here, we address common questions about our company, services, and the properties we offer. Our goal is to make the home-selling and buying process as simple and transparent as possible.

Q: How is your company different from a traditional Pittsburgh real estate company?

A: Unlike traditional real estate companies, we purchase properties directly from homeowners who need to sell quickly, often due to foreclosure or other urgent circumstances. We do not act as agents representing the seller. After purchasing, we either remodel the property or sell it to another investor who will fix it up.

Q: Why are the properties discounted so much on this site?  Wouldn’t you just keep the best deals for yourself?


A: Our properties are discounted 20-50% because of our proprietary marketing systems that connect us with homeowners needing to sell quickly. We buy properties at foreclosure auctions and from banks, often helping homeowners out of difficult situations. We pass these discounts on to you, providing you with excellent investment opportunities.

Q: How are the properties on this site different from the ones I’d find on the MLS?

A: Most properties on our site are exclusive and not listed on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service). We work directly with homeowners, allowing us to solve their problems more quickly and cost-effectively than traditional MLS listings.

Q: Can I use bank financing to buy these properties?

A: While we typically work with cash buyers who can close quickly, we do consider all offers, including those from buyers pre-approved with a bank. If you need financing, contact us, and we can connect you with recommended lenders we’ve worked with before.

Q: How do I make an offer on a property?

A: To make an offer, visit our Contact Us page and send us an email or give us a call. Offers are taken on a first-come, first-served basis. Once you decide to purchase, we’ll require an earnest deposit to secure your offer. We’ll answer any questions to ensure you feel 100% comfortable and confident in your decision.

Q: How often do you add new investment properties in Pittsburgh to the site and VIP Buyers List?

A: We continually source new investment properties and regularly update our site. Check back often, as our properties tend to sell quickly. Join our VIP Buyers List to get notified about new opportunities as soon as they become available.

Q: Do you charge any fees to buy or sell a home?

A: We do not charge homeowners any fees to help them find a solution. We purchase properties at a mutually beneficial price. When you buy an investment property from us, you pay a deeply discounted price, which includes our property acquisition fee. This fee represents our profit for finding and negotiating the deal.

Additional Questions About Selling Pittsburg Homes

Q: How can you make selling my house as simple as possible?

  5. Close the Deal: If you accept, we handle the closing process and purchase the property.
  6. Move On: You are relieved of the unwanted home and can move on with peace of mind.

Q: Can you help me repair and sell my house instead of buying it directly?

A: Absolutely! If you prefer to repair and sell your house rather than selling it directly to us, we can help. Our team can guide you through the process, offering expert advice and connecting you with reliable contractors. We aim to maximize your property’s value and ensure a smooth selling experience.
