Frequently Asked Questions
How does the process work to sell my house?
Once you have completed the Sell Your Home Fast Form on our homepage one of our real estate specialists will contact you shortly (usually within 24 hours). In some situations, we will need to gather additional information. We will research your property and discuss all the details with you. Our company may be able to buy your home directly from you right over the phone, or in most cases we will schedule a time with you to view the property and make you an offer!
What sort of houses do you buy?
What do you mean “any condition, area, price range, or situation”?
Are you REALTORS™?
What will your service cost me?
Is my information kept confidential?
What if I am behind on my payments, in foreclosure or bankruptcy? Are you still able help?
Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
Great question. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses in New Jersey 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.
Do you pay fair prices for properties?
We are looking to get a fair discount on a property. In our experience, many sellers aren’t necessarily expecting a large “windfall” on the property but rather appreciate that we can offer cash for your house in its ‘As-Is’ condition. We are local investors who seek to simplify the process of selling your house. We use our own funds to make our offers. We buy houses and we are ready to buy your house for cash today! Agents take way too long to list and sell your house and they charge you 6% commission in the process. We are professional home buyers only interested in buying your house for cash, which will save you time, money and effort. We also allow you to close on a day that’s convenient for you. Our process is designed to give you full control of how you sell your home.
How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
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. As you know, house values have taken a huge hit in the last 5 years and most areas still haven’t seen prices come back up. We take many pieces of information into consideration… and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too.
Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
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.
Once we evaluate the property, we then present a written offer that is fair based on the condition of the house. If you decide to move forward with the deal, we’ll give you 100% cash for your house. At Quick n Easy Offers, we strive to make every aspect of selling your home easier. We are real estate investors who work hard and fast to provide you with the best result and service possible!
How are you different from a real estate agent?
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 4-6% of the sale price of your house. 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 are professional cash home buyers. Our process does not involve getting pre-qualified by a mortgage bank in order to obtain a home loan or listing the property on the MLS or any other listing platform. The reason our team at Quick n Easy Offers is able to purchase properties very quickly is because we use our own money, which means the sale is more secure and we can close faster than a traditional buyer.
What Is an As-Is Home sale?
When a home is put up on sale as an as-is listing, it means it’s being sold in its current state—no upgrades or improvements will be made by the seller. The home may have major repair needs or maybe it requires a style and décor update. If a home is sold as-is, then the buyer takes responsibility for repairs and modifications, including problems that may not be apparent at the time of sale.
Does It Matter If I leave stuff behind?
Since we buy properties in as-is condition you can leave whatever items you do not want behind. So if you have odds & ends that you haven’t touched for the last 5 years and have no plans to, we will take care of it. In most cases we either donate or dispose of any unwanted or garbage items.
Why sell to a house/home buying company?
Some sellers may opt to work with a company that buys houses because their home needs a lot of work before they could consider listing it. Maybe the roof should be replaced or repaired, the windows are in rough shape, or the entire place is a cosmetic eyesore.
Not all sellers have the time or budget for hefty renovations necessary for a proper listing, and that’s OK. In addition, some sellers hate the idea of repeated showings. It raises their blood pressure and they want an easy, fast solution.
Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
You are in no way obligated to take our cash offer if it does not align with your expectations. Once we provide you a FAIR CASH OFFER for your house, the decision to accept or decline our offer is completely up to you. The best part of our process is that it’s absolutely FREE.

Can I Work With an Attorney?
Yes you may! And if it is easiest we can communicate with your attorney directly to coordinate any closing or title issues. We want to make sure each client feels comfortable no matter what situation is going on.
What is the process of using an escrow entail?
An escrow is a term that refers to a neutral third party hired to handle the exchange of money, property transaction, and related documents. The escrow holds the money and documents in a trust until all terms and conditions of the sale are satisfied. When depositing earnest money, it is wise to use an escrow account.
Who will handle the repairs?
It doesn’t matter what condition your house is in, we can help you by making a fair cash offer on your home today. The costs involved in repairs, touch-ups, painting, and cleaning leave you drained and cost you thousands of dollars. Not to mention; extra mortgage payments and tax payments take money away from your bottom line.
And all of this is before the house is even on the market! We buy houses on your terms AS-IS, without requesting any repairs. Take what you want with you and leave everything else behind. We handle the clean-up.
How long will it take to sell my home?
Quick n Easy Offers is committed to helping you accomplish this goal quick and easy. Our process eliminates all the traditional roadblocks that slow or stop a sale from happening. We pay cash and close fast!
You are under no obligation to sell your house to us. If our cash offer is the right option for you, we will open escrow and you can receive your cash in as little as 7 to 14 days, or on your timeline. It is that easy and stress-free to sell your house fast on your terms when you use our service.
Can I Sell My Home With A Tenant?
Yes. We are experienced in dealing with bad or problem tenants. You have every legal right to sell your home with tenants. Every circumstance is different and this will be taken into consideration when offering you a cash value.
Why is my home’s assessed value different from the market value?
Your home’s assessed value and market value are each determined by different factors. Buyers and sellers affect the market value of a home, while professional appraisers calculate the assessed value. In a seller’s market, your home’s market value may be higher than its assessed value. That’s because buyers are willing to pay more than the home is technically worth because of low inventory. In a buyer’s market, you’ll be facing a lot of competition from other sellers, so buyers may put in an offer lower than the home’s assessed value.
Are real estate commissions negotiable?
You can definitely negotiate your realtor’s fees. They’re typically 6%, with 3% of that going to the buyer’s agent and 3% going to your agent. Some agents may be willing to work for less, especially if you use a discount broker or agent-matching service like Quick n Easy Offers. You can also try to negotiate fees on your own, though the realtor may reduce the number of services they provide.
The same goes for using a discount broker. Some offer cheaper rates because they’re providing you with less help along the way. They may even charge you with a fee-for-service structure. This can work in your favor if you have experience in selling, but need just a little help with the paperwork. To get cheaper commissions without sacrificing service, an agent-matching service like Quick n Easy Offers is ideal.
When is the best time to sell a home?
Early spring and summer, especially June, is a great time to sell a home. Research shows that home sales in May, June, July, and August account for 40% of total annual sales volume.
Overall, home sales are still pretty good through early fall, so it wouldn’t be a bad idea to sell a home during this period, either. However, home sales drop once winter hits. January is the worst time to sell a home, as market activity is much lower.
What is a foreclosure?
A foreclosure sometimes referred to as an REO, is a property that is owned by a lender. If you’re considering the purchase of a foreclosure, it’s important to understand that most are sold “as-is.” Foreclosures, if not purchased by an owner occupant, are often purchased by investors, fixed up, “flipped,” and sold to an owner occupant.
What is a short sale?
As it is with the home buying process itself, it is essential you understand what a short sale is before getting yourself involved with it. A short sale is one in which a homeowner sells their house for a price that is less than the amount still owed on the mortgage. It can be regarded as a ‘distressed sale’ carried out when the current market value of a property is below the amount owed to a lender. The lender forgives the remaining balance of the loan.
The downside is that many short-sale properties are usually not in good condition. So, you must be patient and not in an immediate rush to move. Also, you can consider a foreclosure if it is still possible.
How do you pack fragile or high-value items?
Fragile items should be those defined by you to be breakable or high-value (such as dishes, glassware, artwork, fragile furniture, mirrors, etc.). Ensure that all the items in your home are packed by experts using the most up-to-date packing methods and materials in the industry.
How do I sell my home quickly?
Working with a buyer like Quick n Easy Offers is the quickest way to sell your home compared to other selling methods, which rely on you sacrificing your time and energy. We can close in 14 days. You don’t have to list your home or make any repairs to it – we do all the heavy lifting. You can sell a house fast by working with one of the top real estate agents in your area, going the for-sale-by-owner route, selling your home at auction, or seeing if you qualify for a short sale. However, these methods require the right timing, and more energy from you, and they don’t happen as quickly as working with Quick n Easy Offers.
How do you buy houses?
We are real estate investors and make our money from flipping houses and holding rentals. We are always looking to buy houses that we can add value to. These houses are then fully renovated, held as either; rental properties sold on the MLS to homeowners or sold off in bulk to other investment firms and hedge funds. We won’t buy every house we look at, it will need to fit into our current strategy and be a mutually beneficial deal to you and to us.
What will it cost to sell my home?
There is no selling cost when you sell your home to Quick n Easy Offers. Since we are investors buying the property directly, there are no real estate agent fees or commissions. We typically pay all the closing costs when you sell your home to us, what we pay is what you get in your pocket.
How do I get the cash for my house?
Depending on the location of the closing (at the title company’s office or at your preferred location) there are a few ways that our sellers typically get paid. It basically comes down to either a wire transfer to your account or a certified cashier’s cheque.
Do you charge for giving a quote?
Even if you are not in a hurry to sell your home today, Quick n Easy Offers can offer you a free quote of how much cash we can offer. We also offer free advice if, in fact, we believe you would be better off using a traditional agent to list your home. Even if you do not choose to use the services we have to offer, the formal estimate and advice are completely free and place you, the homeowner, under no obligations.
I still have questions!
How Soon Can I Get A Cash Offer?
We understand that when you contact us, you may be in a time-sensitive situation. You might need to move quickly for a new job or to take care of family matters. We are here to help you get the cash offer in 72 hours or less.
What Are The Fees And Costs?
There are no hidden fees or costs when you work with us. We will give you a cash offer for your home as-is. This means that you won’t have to make any repairs or renovations before selling. You also won’t have to pay any real estate agent commissions.
Do You Buy Structurally Damaged Houses?
We buy houses in every condition, including those with structural damage. We understand that it can be expensive to make repairs, and you might not have the time or money to do so. We will still give you a fair cash offer for your home.
Can I Decide on the Closing Date?
Yes, you can decide on the closing date. We understand that you might need some time to move out or to make arrangements for your next home. We will work with you to find a date that is convenient for you.
After Your Offer, Am I Obligated to Sell My House?
No, you are not obligated to sell your house after we make you an offer. We will give you a fair cash offer, and it is up to you to decide whether or not you want to accept it. There is no pressure to sell, and you can take your time to make a decision.
