Frequently Asked Questions
You might have some questions, and that’s perfectly normal—many people do. Here’s a brief compilation of common questions along with our responses. If you have any further questions, feel free to reach out to us at any time. We’re here to help!
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: That’s a great question. Unlike real estate agents, we are not in the business of listing houses. With the Narrow Path House Buyers, we are professional home buyers who buy houses directly. In fact, if you’re looking to sell your house in Raleigh, we’re your go-to team. We offer a hassle-free solution for homeowners who want to sell their house with speed and convenience.
When we say we buy houses, we mean it. We have the funds available to purchase your house without relying on bank financing. This allows us to close deals quickly and eliminates any uncertainty or delays. Whether your house needs repairs or is in perfect condition, we are interested in buying it.
After buying your house, we may choose to make repairs and resell it to another homeowner. Alternatively, we may decide to keep it as a rental property. Either way, our main goal is to provide a fair and straightforward solution for homeowners who want to sell their house without the hassle of traditional listings.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Traditional real estate agents rely on listing properties and waiting for potential buyers, a process that typically takes 4-6 months in many markets. They then charge a percentage commission, typically between 3 to 6% of the sale price, which can amount to thousands of dollars for the seller.
While agents offer a valuable service for those willing to wait and pay commissions, we offer a distinct alternative. We’re not agents; we’re direct home buyers. By purchasing your house directly from you with all cash, we can make a quick decision, sometimes within a day. We take on the risk by investing our own funds to buy, repair, and market the property, providing sellers with a hassle-free and efficient solution.

Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: At [company_name], we understand the importance of fair pricing when it comes to buying properties. We strive to offer competitive prices that are beneficial to both parties involved. While it’s true that many of the houses we purchase are below market value, it’s important to consider the reasons behind this strategy. By acquiring properties at a fair discount, we are able to resell them at a profit to another homeowner. This allows us to provide a quick and hassle-free selling process for homeowners who value convenience and speed over the need for extensive repairs or agent fees.
If you’re looking to sell your house fast and appreciate the benefits of a cash offer with a quick closing, we may be the right solution for you. Our no-obligation pricing commitment gives you the freedom to explore your options without any pressure. We believe in transparent and fair negotiations, ensuring that both parties can reach a win-win price. So, let’s connect and see if we can provide you with a competitive offer that meets your needs!

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Determining the price for your house is a transparent process for us. We take into account several factors such as the property’s location, necessary repairs, current condition, and the recent sales value of comparable houses in the area. By carefully considering all of this information, we strive to come up with a fair price that satisfies both parties.
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: Here’s how we distinguish ourselves from the traditional home selling process: When you sell directly to us, there are zero fees or commissions, unlike listing fees that can take up to 6% from your proceeds. We’ll present an offer, and if it aligns with your needs, we’ll purchase your home hassle-free, without any fees.
Additionally, we often cover the closing costs. Our profits come after covering repair expenses and selling the house for a gain. We shoulder the risks associated with selling for profit. Once we buy your home, the responsibility shifts to us, leaving you free from property burdens and with cash in hand.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my information?
A: There is no obligation when you submit your information. Once you provide details about your property, we will assess the information and may schedule a call with you to gather more information. We will then present you with a fair, all-cash offer. The decision to sell your house to us is entirely up to you. We believe in giving you the freedom to choose what is best for you.
