How Do I Get Cash For My House?
Do you have questions about selling your house in Philadelphia? Below, we answer some of our most frequently asked questions. If there is something else you would like t know, don’t hesitate to contact us (or give us a call) and we’ll be happy to answer it for you.
Q: Who are you? And what do you do?
A: I’m a lifelong Philadelphia resident who spent over 15 years working in the healthcare field turned house flipper. You can learn more about me on the “company page”.
Philly Home Investor is a company that pays cash for homes in Philadelphia and the surrounding counties. We buy them in any condition and all over the PA and South Jersey area. Soon to be expanding into SW Florida area. We are the ideal alternative if you need to sell your house without the hassles of traditional listings. Even if time isn’t much of an issue, but still want to avoid the expenses and annoyance of listing your home for sale in PA with an agent, we are the perfect option.
Q: Is A “We Buy Houses” Company Right For Me?
“We are not desperate to sell our home in PA, nor are we in a hurry!”
Believe it or not, the majority of the sellers we have purchased houses in Philadelphia from were not desperate to sell (at all), nor were they trying to escape foreclosure. Most of our clients choose us simply because they either have had bad experiences with listing their house with an agent, or they just don’t want to deal with repairs, constant walk-throughs or any hassle one experiences selling a house the traditional way.
Q: Why Should I Choose You?
A: Honestly, you absolutely do not have to pick us at all.
We are not desperate. We do not need to make a huge profit on each deal. By all means, do not let me tell you why you should choose us. I will however tell you how we are different from the rest
- We are one of the top ranked Home Buyers in Philadelphia – Don’t believe us just checkout our Google Reviews. We do what we say and go through with the transaction. We are the popular choice
- We Focus on You – Whether we buy your Philadelphia house in cash or not we will treat you will respect and do our best to make you the highest offer on your house!
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: Great question. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses in Philadelphia that meet our purchasing criteria. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another homeowner or keep it as a rental ourselves.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Yes! While our offers are not full retail, we will still pay you a fair cash price! When you think of the money you will save on commission, repairs, closing costs, marketing, and holding costs, selling directly may be the best way for you to sell! Many sellers appreciate that we can offer cash, we close very quickly, there are no commissions or any other expenses. There is never any obligation when receiving an offer from Philly Home Investor. Under no means are you required to move forward with a sale, but it’s still nice to know what we can offer you!

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 property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the property, and values of comparable houses sold in the area recently. We take many pieces of information into consideration… and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too.
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 to us. We’ll make you an offer, and if it’s a fit then we’ll buy your house (and we’ll often 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 risks 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 its payments.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them. The agent shows the properties to prospective buyers if there are any (the average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 6-12 months) and then take a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 3-6% of the sale price of your house (so if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay between $3,000 – $6,000 in commissions to an agent). 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. We don’t list houses. Since we’re the one buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash… we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple of days. 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 (which is the hard part in this market).
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 completely up to you 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.
