Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some Frequently Asked Questions.

Getting Paid Questions

Q: How soon can we close so I can get my money?
A: Once we agree on a price and get the purchase agreement signed, we try to close as soon as possible. In most cases this is around 2-3 weeks. If required, we can move faster or slower. It really depends on YOUR needs and if we run into any title issues.

Q: How do I get paid?
A: At closing with a local title company, you’ll receive a certified check which you can deposit immediately OR you can have the title company wire transfer the money directly into your bank account.

Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Fair, yes. Full market price, generally no. Many of the houses we purchase ARE for below full market value. Why? Well, we have to buy at this level to afford to cover your closing costs, pay for repairs or updates, pay for insurance/taxes/utilities/etc while we own the house, then make some money in the end when we sell it. We offer you the ability to sell your house quickly, without repairs or costs. If our offer won’t work for you, we can help you explore other options.

Q: How do you come up with your offer price?
A: We factor in location, condition of the house, and the real estate market in the area. After looking at all those variables, we present an offer to you that hopefully works for both of us. Most of the time we’ll give you the choice of a quick cash offer now or more money over time.

Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: $0 in fees or closing costs and $0 real estate agent commissions.

Why Us Questions

Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Time and money and hassles. Using a real estate agent costs more money and takes more time. There are also more hassles involved when using a real estate agent. You’ll have to clean your house, the buyer will ask you to make silly repairs, the buyer’s financing might fall through, etc. We offer you a solution to sell your house the EASY way: no money out of pocket, no repairs, quick closing.

Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is absolutely zero obligation. Once you submit your information or contact us, we’ll reach out to discuss your situation. In the end, we’ll do business together or we won’t. No pressure, no obligations.

Q: Do you only buy houses?
A: American Property Relief is open to buying houses, multi-family units as well as commercial property.
