Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a quick collection of some of the questions clients have asked us during our time working together, along with our answers. Any other questions? Don’t hesitate to contact us anytime! We would be happy to answer them for you.

Q:  How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Property Max pays cash for homes in Oregon, Washington, California, and Texas. We cut out the need to deal with long closing times, an agent’s commission, and fees, appraisals, and closing costs. With a direct cash sale, homeowners are able to set their own closing date and sell their homes with no commission or repairs required – much easier and faster than the traditional method of selling a house. Through our mission statement of offering convenience and efficiency in real estate transactions, we are driven by our vision of being the leading provider of stress-free home purchase services.

Q:  Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A:  We are not agents, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers who buy houses that meet our purchasing criteria. After purchasing a home, we will make any necessary repairs and upgrades so we can resell them to another homeowner or keep it as a rental ourselves.

Our company buys the house directly from you. Since we pay with our own cash, we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple of days (sometimes even the same day). Again, we make our living by taking the risk to buy the house with our own cash, repair the house, and market it ourselves to find a buyer.

Looking for this to be broken down further? Here’s a comparison chart to give an overview:

Q:  How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A:  Our process is simple: we look at the location of the property, what repairs and upgrades are needed, the current condition of the property, and the value of comparable houses sold in the area recently. Using this information, our experienced team of real estate experts is able to come up with a fair price that we hope will work for you!

Q:  Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: This is what makes us stand out from the traditional method of selling your house there are NO fees or commissions when you sell your house directly to us compared to listing fees. We’ll make you a cash offer for your property and, if it’s a fit, then we’ll buy your house with no hassles and no fees. In most cases, we can even pay for the closing costs, too!

We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house and sell it for a profit. Once we purchase the property directly from you, the responsibility is ours and you walk away without the burden of the house and its payments. Selling a house should always be this easy.

Q:  Is there any obligation when I submit my information?
A: There is absolutely zero obligation. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll take a look at your situation and set up a call with you to find out a bit more. If your house meets our buying criteria, we will make you an all-cash offer on the spot. From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us. We want you to decide what’s right for you.
