Real estate agents list properties with the hope of finding a buyer, often taking 6-12 months and charging a commission of 3-6% of the sale price. They provide a valuable service for those who can afford to wait and pay commission fees. Our approach, however, is distinct: We are home buyers, not agents. We actually purchase the homes or work with partners, often making a decision within a couple of days (or even the same day). We invest our own money to buy, repair, and market the houses, assuming the risk and responsibility for the property.
