Frequently Asked Questions
We’ve put together a list of questions and answers to help you understand the process better. If you still have a question or two, just call or contact us. We’ll answer any questions you have. We are very straightforward and honest. Because we talk to people every day and have to give them direct answers quickly. And we’ll treat you with the same level of respect.
Q: Who Are You?
A: My name is Teri, the owner of House Hub Real Estate Solutions and I am a professional home buyer based out of Spartanburg, South Carolina. My partner and I are local and have been helping homeowners who need to sell their homes for the past 10 or so years.
“Our Company” page will give you more information about who we are, and what how we help folks. Visit that page to learn more about our company House Hub Real Estate Solutions. We are the Honest Guys and buy properties with our own money and without all the gimmicks and empty promises you may get from the other guys.
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: We want to buy your house. We are not trying to list your house. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses in Upstate South Carolina that meet our purchasing criteria. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another home owner or keep it as a rental ourselves.
Q: Why is a cash offer better for a seller?
A: This method of selling is gaining popularity as homeowners look for a more convenient way to sell their homes. This process is very different – it’s also faster, easier, and doesn’t cost the homeowner anything.
Rather than listing and showing the house or negotiating, the homeowner simply sells their house direct to us for cash. We are ready to buy the house as-is right now. It’s faster and easier on the seller – there is no expense or effort to repair the house before it’s sold; and it doesn’t cost the homeowner anything – we pay all closing costs and fees.
Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Great question, and we’re an open book: Our process is very straightforward. We look at the location of the house, what repairs are needed, and what condition your house is currently in. Does it need $50,000 in repairs or just cleaning and painting? What are comparable houses selling for near your place?
We will provide you an offer based on the comparable sales in your neighborhood. We have extensive knowledge in valuation due to our real estate appraisal experience.
And we’ll answer any questions you have about our offer, selling your house, or about the closing process. We are real estate buying professionals, and we’re glad to share our process with you.
Our goal is to allow you to receive the highest possible amount for your property while still having the purchase make sense as an investment for us. We are seeking a Win-Win situation! More often than not, you can net MORE MONEY by selling to us than by listing the property and selling with a realtor.
Q: If you provide me an offer, am I obligated to take it?
A: Not at all. There is no legal obligation for you to accept our offer. It is 100% free and you decide if it makes sense for you to accept it.

Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: No. 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 us. We’ll make you an offer, and if it’s a fit then we’ll buy your house (and we’ll pay for the closing costs too!). No hassle. No fees.
We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house (if any) and sell it for a profit (we’re taking all of the risk here on whether we can sell it for a profit or not, once we buy the house from you… the responsibility is ours and you walk away without the burden of the property and it’s payments… and often with cash in your hand).
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents are sales people who work on commission. That’s no secret. They list properties and hope that someone will buy them.
However, we are that home buyer. We purchase houses directly from homeowners. So an agent is not necessary because you have already found us! You have just saved yourself 6 percent commission. That’s thousands of dollars!
We can buy your house so you do not have to deal with it any longer. We can take on the responsibility and pay for everything to make sure it is up to code, remodeled properly, and repaired correctly. We do that after we purchase your house. You get to walk away from closing with your house sold and we get to start a new project.
Agents provide a great service for those that can wait 6-12 months to sell and who don’t mind giving up some of that sale price to pay for the commissions. But that’s where we’re different: We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. Our company actually buys houses and we pay with all cash… we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple days (sometimes the same day). It’s that simple.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Many of the houses we purchase are below market value (we do this so we can resell it at a profit to another home owner).
We are looking to get a fair discount on a property. However, in our experience, many sellers aren’t necessarily expecting a large “windfall” on the property but rather appreciate that we can offer cash, we close very quickly (no waiting for financing), and no time or effort or expense is required on your part of fix up the property or pay agent fees.
If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house sold fast… let’s see if we can come to a fair win-win price. (Besides, our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you do not have to move forward with the offer we give… but it’s good to know what we’re offering!)
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
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.
Q: How can I find more information on selling my house?
A: Feel free to browse our blog. It is filled with many tips on selling your house.
Q: Who will pay the closing costs? Will it cost me any money?
A: We will pay all closing costs associated with the transaction. Working with us will not cost you any money out of pocket, as we will pay for everything. Unlike traditional real estate agents we don’t charge you for anything and there are no fees or commissions associated with the transaction.
Q: What about paperwork?
A: The paperwork is minimal compared to selling your house using a realtor. The only required paperwork is the purchase agreement prior to closing.
If you accept our offer, you will be required to sign and return a simple purchase agreement that we send over to our attorney so that he can research title and do his magic.
On the closing date of your choice, you’ll receive your payment via wire-transfer or check or a big stack of cash and that’s it! It’s really that simple!
Q: What’s the difference between you and other companies online?
A: While we can’t speak for other companies online, we are a legitimate professional house buying company.
We are a family owned company who follow family values. We are not a large company where you are just another number that will bounce around from one person to another and get lost in the process. We are the people you will meet when we walk through your house and the people that will answer the phone when you call. We are everyday people just like you, honest, hardworking and kind. We are easily accessible and reachable and will hold your hand during every step of the process.
We will treat you with respect, integrity and understanding because this is how we would want to be treated. We would love for the opportunity to work with you and make this situation painless and hassle-free for you.
