Frequently Asked Questions

Maybe you have some questions, that’s perfectly normal. Here you’ll find a compilation of common questions people have asked us, along with our responses. If you still have any inquiries, please feel free to contact us. We’ll be happy to provide you with the information you’re looking for.

Q: Is there any commitment required when I provide my information?
A: There’s no obligation for you. After you share some details about your property, we’ll assess the information, reach out to schedule an appointment to visit your home, and then present you with an all-cash offer that’s fair for both parties. The decision to sell your house to us is entirely up to you. We respect your choice and empower you to determine what’s best for your circumstances.

Q: Will you list my house on the MLS or acquire it?
A: Our approach at Greener Side Homes does not involve listing houses on the MLS. We are property buyers, specializing in acquiring homes in Virginia that align with our specific criteria. Plus we don’t depend on traditional bank financing, we pay cash for your property. Post-purchase, we may undertake repairs and either resell the property to another homeowner or retain it as a rental in our portfolio.

Q: How is Greener Side Homes different from real estate agents?
A: We operate differently at Greener Side Homes. Real estate agents list properties and rely on finding potential buyers over a certain period of time, typically around 6 months, with commissions ranging from 5% to 6% of the home’s sale price. For example, on a $100,000 house, this could mean paying $5,000 to $6,000 in agent commissions. We are not agents, we are home buyers who can buy your house directly and for cash. With us, you don’t pay any commission, we can close in as little as 7 days and we take the responsibility of any necessary repairs.

Take a look to this chart to visualize the differences:

Who Pays For Repairs?Negotiated during the inspection periodWe pay for all repairs.
*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similarly, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.

Q: Do you offer fair prices for properties?
A: Most of the properties we obtain come at prices lower than market value. This allows us to undertake any necessary repairs and independently marketing the property at our own risk. That’s why we seek a reasonable discount when purchasing a property. Many sellers value our ability to provide a cash offer, expedite the closing process without the need for financing delays, and eliminate the requirement for you to invest time, effort, or expenses in property repairs or agent fees.

Q: How do you establish the offer price for my house?
A: Great question. Our approach is straightforward. We consider several factors, including the property’s location, necessary repairs, its current condition, and the recent sales prices of comparable houses in the area. By carefully considering these elements, we determine a fair price that aligns both your and our needs.
