Frequently Asked Questions
Is This For Real?
Yes; since 2001, Connecticut We Buy Houses has purchased over 400 homes throughout Connecticut. We don’t know of another residential investment company which has bought more homes. People find it hard to believe that we do what we do, but similar to pre-owned car dealers who exist simply to buy pre-owned cars, renovate them, and detail them, we exist simply for purchasing pre-owned homes from sellers who want out.
What kind of houses do you buy?
We buy residential houses or condos in Connecticut. We buy Connecticut homes in any condition or any price range. We buy in as-is condition, so there’s no need for any repairs.
Are you realtors who just want to list my house?
We Buy Connecticut Homes, it’s what we do. It’s why we are in business. Most people who call us don’t want to go through the traditional real estate process of selling. They typically just want a firm offer and hassle free sale to avoid the uncertainty of unknown closing date or unknown future price. We provide an as-is offer within hours. Sometimes, listing your property may be the best solution for you, but it is not what our plan is. Our principal is a licensed CT Real Estate Broker, and this is how we sell the homes we end up buying.
What do you mean by “any condition”? What if my house needs repairs?
We will buy your house as-is! You don’t need to do any more repairs! Buying distressed property is how we make our living. Whether your home needs no repairs or thousands of dollars in repairs, we can purchase it. We have purchased homes that required 8 dumpsters to get stuff out, we took care of that hassle so our sellers could move on. We have purchased homes with mold problems that we resolved. We have purchased homes within ground oil tanks. You name it, we’ve bought it.
What if my property has Health Department violations or is condemned?
No problem! We can still buy your house as-is, even if it has demolition orders scheduled. We’ve done it. Consider it sold.
Do you deal in higher priced properties?
Yes, we can work with any seller who needs to move a property quickly for any reason and in any price range.
What if I am behind on my payments or in foreclosure, can you help?
Yes, if you call or contact us now, we may be able to help catch up your back payments and stop the foreclosure process. We have purchased properties with a foreclosure sale date scheduled the same week. Call now.
What do you charge for your services?
Of the hundreds of homes we have purchased, we don’t charge sellers when we buy their home. The typical costs to sell a home are there like a settlement fee. An attorney charges usually under 1000, and Conveyance tax that the state charges is typically around 1% of the sale price. If we buy your house, there is typically no charge, in fact you avoid the typical 6% real estate commission 90% of sellers pay. In cases where it’s needed, we can pay those closing costs and work it into the transaction. What you can expect from us is a no obligation offer within hours.
If I submit the online form, when will I hear from you?
