Q: Who are you?
A: 1-800 Best Offer was founded by Jonathan Pierce and he is the principal operator of the company. We have an excellent support team composed of a closing company, contractors, and a real estate agent. You can learn more about our team on our company page.
A: Ultimately, that is up to you if working with a cash home buyer like 1-800 Best Offer would be the best decision for your family. The majority of homeowners we work with are not desperate or trying to avoid foreclosure; most just want out of their property with a fair price and easy process. They’ve had bad experiences listing their homes with a real estate agent or just want to avoid making repairs, cleaning, or paying for upgrades. There is no obligation to get a cash offer from us, so why not see what we can offer?
A: Fill out the sell your house form or give us a call and a 1-800 Best Offer member will contact you ASAP.
A: Each situation is unique, but we pride ourselves on being able to make accurate and fair offers within 24 hours on a business day.
A: That’s ok. We buy houses in “as-is” condition. Which means you don’t have to make any repairs.
A: Yes, as long as the foreclosure has not been finalized (the bank owns it), we can make you an offer.
A: Here’s how we determine what to offer for your property:
1. We Determine The Market Value Of Your Home In Tennessee.
The first step is to create a comparative market analysis or a CMA. A CMA is the first step in determining what homes are comparable to yours. We look at all houses that have recently been sold within one mile of your property, with similar (comparable) characteristics to your home (same square footage, number of beds/baths, etc. ).
We then look at their sold price. This gives us a very accurate market value of your house if your house is in the exact same condition as these other houses that have been sold.
2. We Determine The Cost Of Repairs.
The cost of repairs is what it will cost to bring your house to a very similar condition as those that have recently sold in your area. During our walkthrough, we will note what repairs are needed. Don’t worry! You won’t have to make any repairs. This is just for our contractors to know what needs to be fixed once we buy your home.
3. We Make You An Offer.
Once we complete our walkthrough, we will finalize our offer and present you with a written cash offer.
If you accept the offer we can discuss a closing date where you will receive your cash and be completely done with the house! Congratulations, you just sold your house without any hassle, fees, or commissions. Here you will find an actual example explained in detail.
A: There are NO fees or commissions when you sell your house to us. Since we are direct home buyers, you don’t have to pay a commission to us when selling your home, saving you time and money!
A: There is absolutely zero obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll take a look at things, maybe set up a call with you to find out a bit more, and make you an all-cash offer that’s fair for you and fair for us. From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us… and we won’t hassle you, won’t harass you… it’s 100% your decision and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.
A: 1-800 Best Offer buys residential homes, condos, land, mobile homes, townhomes, duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, apartment complexes in any condition!
A: No. There is no upfront investment from you. There’s no service charge, commissions, or closing costs when selling your property to us. We also don’t require you to make any repairs to your property.
