1. How is using Georgia Fair Offer different from selling my house with the help of a real estate agent?
A real estate agent plays a crucial role in helping you sell your house by utilizing the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), which serves as a powerful marketing tool to showcase your home to a wide range of potential buyers. However, this process often entails enduring numerous walkthroughs over a span of weeks or even months until the right buyer is found. Once the sale is finalized, you’ll need to bear various expenses such as title fees, closing costs, and the agent’s commission.
In contrast, as investors, we offer you the option to sell your house quickly for cash or find other buyers who are willing to do the same. Georgia Fair Offers approach involves buying your property directly and then rehabbing it before putting it back on the market for resale, hopefully generating a profit. By selling to us, you can bypass the need for a real estate agent and the associated extra expenses that come along with their services. We cover the costs of inspections and closing, eliminate commission charges, and provide you with a cash payment. This streamlined process enables you to experience a faster sale with less hassle.
2. How do I know this is the best course of action for me?
When it comes to selling your house, hiring an agent can often result in a lengthy and cumbersome process.

Then we come out to the property and assess necessary repairs along with costs for buying and selling your home.
For us to stay in business, we need to figure in some profit. We keep our profit to a minimum so that everyone walks away with a great deal.

8. How is the price you pay for my house determined?
When it comes to determining the after-repair value (ARV) of your house, we take a comprehensive approach to ensure a fair price. Our process involves evaluating how much your house could sell for on the market after we complete the necessary repairs and refurbishments. To accurately assess the repair and refurbishment costs we do a walk-through of the home when possible.
In addition to the repair costs, we also consider the selling costs. While you’re fortunate enough to avoid using an agent when selling to us, we still need to employ one to list the house after the purchase. This includes covering holding and closing costs, fees, taxes, and commission, which typically amounts to around 10% of the ARV.
After factoring in the repair, rehab, and selling costs, we then add our minimum profit to the equation. This comprehensive calculation enables us to determine a fair price for your house. In most cases, the offered amount is quite close to what you would have received if you had sold your house through traditional means, while also considering the additional expenses you would have incurred when working with an agent.
