How Our Michigan House Buying Process Works

Our Michigan based team works to make your house selling process as smooth and hassle-free as possible.
Our process is quick, fair, transparent and honest.
Once we make a cash offer, we can close in as little as five days.

Here’s how it works:

Step 1

Reach out to us and
get a ballpark offer

Call or text us at 616-379-3090, or fill out our confidential contact form. We will ask you a few questions about the condition of your Michigan house. Based on these questions and our research, we will discuss a ballpark offer range with you.

We buy houses in and around Grand Rapids (generally within an hour drive of our office in Ada!)  You may be skeptical that we’ll give you a low ball offer for your house.  This is not in our best interest because we invest hours into each seller we speak with.  Our goal is to buy houses in Michigan.  It is not to waste your time!

Step 2

Property Visit

If the ballpark cash offer that we discuss on your house is within the range of what you are looking for, then we’ll schedule an appointment of no more than 30 minutes to meet you at the property, introduce ourselves in person and look at the property.

During this appointment we will get a good understanding of the condition of your house in Grand Rapids or surrounding areas so that we can give you a free, written no-obligation cash offer.  Our offer will be based on the as-is condition of your house, and we can close on a timeline that works for you.

Step 3

Cash Offer

Once we visit or look at pictures of your house and have a clear understanding of its condition, we’ll give you a fair cash offer based on the market value of your home. We guarantee that we’ll give you the cash offer within 24 hours, or we’ll pay you $100.

It is in our best interest to give you the best offer possible to purchase your house.  We spend time driving all over the Grand Rapids area and do not want to waste anyone’s time!  We want to buy Michigan houses.  If you want to sell your Michigan house, we want to make you a fair cash offer.


Step 4

Close on Your Michigan House

If you decide to accept our cash offer to buy your house, we’ll schedule closing in as little as 5 days (or on a timeline that you choose). You pay no real estate commissions, no closing costs, no hidden fees, and close on a date and at a place of your choosing. You can expect to receive your home sales proceeds in just days.

If you decide not to accept our cash offer, then you will have walked away having learned what we can offer you for your house, at no cost to you.
