Frequently Asked Questions
When it comes to selling your house, we’re sure you have questions. We have taken the time to list here several of the questions that we are asked most often.
WHAT KIND OF PROPERTIES DOES NEW HORIZON HOMES BUY?
We specialize in single family homes, town houses, row houses, condominiums, and duplexes, but we will also buy land and commercial properties.
ARE YOU A REAL ESTATE AGENT OR BROKER?
No. We’re real estate investors. The difference is that agents want to list your home for sale to others. We want to buy your home for ourselves.
MY HOME IS ALREADY LISTED WITH AN AGENT. WILL YOU STILL BUY IT?
Absolutely! If you have a property that is listed with an agent and you need to sell it quickly, or if it has been listed for a long time without a sale, call us. We will submit our offer to your agent.
WILL YOU BUY MY RENTAL PROPERTY?
If you are a landlord and you are tired of renters not paying the rent, breaking up your property, and calling you in the middle of the night, we can help you. We can buy real estate fast, no matter what shape it is in, even if it still has “problem” tenants in it.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN WHEN YOU SAY YOU BUY MY HOUSE “AS-IS”?
One of the biggest problems with selling a house quickly (especially a “distressed” property) is getting it ready to sell. If you are in a hurry, or your cash is limited, fixing up the house can create a real problem for you. But if you don’t fix it, you know it will be very difficult to sell. New owners don’t want to buy a house that needs cleaning or lots of work. That’s where we can help you. We can buy your house in any condition. You don’t have to fix it. You don’t have to paint it. You don’t even have to clean it.
CAN YOU HELP ME IF I AM FACING FORCLOSURE?
If your are in mortgage foreclosure and are tired of all the phone calls, letters and the stress they cause, call us right now (239-347-2020). Don’t wait another minute! Every day you wait costs more money in attorney fees, interest and penalties. Even if you are just a month or two behind, we can help you end the cycle by buying your property quickly.
CAN YOU STILL BUY MY HOUSE IF I AM IN BANKRUPTCY?
Depending on your circumstances, bankruptcy should not stop you from selling your house. It might add some delay and complications, but it can usually be done. The best person to ask is your bankruptcy attorney or trustee.
HOW MUCH WILL YOUR SERVICES COST ME?
DO YOU BUY EVERY PROPERTY YOU LOOK AT?
Heavens no. Sometimes the price or terms we can offer doesn’t meet the seller’s expectations. Sometimes we come across properties that we can’t get clear title to. Sometimes the cost of repairs is much more than the home would be worth. There are many things that could affect whether we make an offer or not, but we do look at every house and make that decision on a case by case basis.
HOW DO YOU GET THE MONEY TO KEEP BUYING PROPERTIES?
we partner with all kind of real estate professionals and investors. When we make an offer on a house, we have already determined where the funds will come from. Sometimes it is our own cash. Other times, we bring in partners who have cash. We also have relationships with private lenders who will finance our purchases for us based on the specifics of the property. Rest assured though, we won’t make an offer we can’t close.
WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH MY HOUSE ONCE YOU BUY IT?
Most likely, we’ll fix it up real nice and sell it. We also purchase houses to keep as rentals from time to time.
I AM ALSO AN INVESTOR. WILL YOU WORK WITH ME?
Yes. More information can be found on our Real Estate Investors page.
