Frequently Asked Questions About the Cash for Homes Process
If I enter my information, am I obligated to sell?
You are never under any obligation to sell your house when you enter your information for our review. You can get a cash offer for your home without any fees, decide if you’re interested in pursuing the sale, and proceed from there. You won’t be locked into the sale until you approve the offer and sign a formal contract.
What kind of fees will I have to pay when selling my home?
When you partner with We Buy Houses Tulsa, you won’t pay a dime in fees. Instead, we calculate everything into the cash offer we extend to you. Unlike traditional realtors, we don’t tack on commission fees, paperwork fees, or anything of that nature. Our process is straightforward and transparent — no hidden fees ever.
How is the offering price for my house determined?
We determine our cash offer price much the same way a traditional real estate appraiser would assess the value of your home. We consider the square footage and layout of your home, as well as its current condition and degree of structural integrity. We also factor in the current market value of the other homes in your neighborhood.
Because we buy houses in any condition, the current state of your home will factor into the offer we’re able to extend. We never require you to perform any repairs, so our offer price is always based on buying your house as-is.
What do you do with the home after you purchase it?
After we close the sale and you collect your cash, we’ll typically repair and update various components of the property if necessary. Once it’s in pristine condition, we may turn around and sell it to another family, or we may choose to rent it out. Every home is unique, and we make our decisions about what to do with them on a case-by-case basis.
Can I sell my home if I am behind on the mortgage?
Yes — we see this situation frequently. Depending on how delinquent you are on your mortgage payments, selling your house may be the best way to get out from under your debt. We can help you get around an imminent foreclosure by ensuring that you sell your house fast. We can also work with your bank to discuss the best options for all involved parties.
How long does it take to sell my home?
When you partner with We Buy Houses Tulsa, we’ll buy your home fast. And by fast, we mean you can have a cash offer in as little as 24 hours. If you accept the offer and choose to proceed with the sale, we can typically close in as few as 7-14 days. That said, there’s never any pressure to accept our offer or sell your home. If you need time to arrange your move or decide if selling is the right choice, our cash offer is valid for a period of 30 days.
Do I have to move out right after selling my house?
No, you do not have to move immediately. Our process includes move-out planning, so we’ll help you create a suitable timeline for your relocation. If you like our offer and agree to move forward with the sale, you can select a move-out date that works for your needs and schedule. If you need a bit of time, let us know, and we’ll be happy to discuss your options.
Can I sell my house if I live out of state?
Absolutely! We frequently work with out-of-state homeowners who need to sell properties in and around Tulsa. We can work with you over the phone and via certified mail to conduct the home selling process rapidly and securely. We strive to ensure we meet your every need; when you contact us, let us know a bit about your situation and we can adjust accordingly.
What types of houses do you buy?
We buy a wide variety of houses in and around Tulsa. Whether it’s new construction, a decades-old home, a single-family dwelling, or a condo, we can buy it. It doesn’t matter if your house requires repairs, or even if it’s condemned — we can make you a fair offer to purchase your property.
