Frequently Asked Questions
Questions? Here is a collection of questions people have asked us over the years, along with our answers. If you still have a question, please contact us anytime. We love to chat about our process for helping people sell their NC homes for a fair cash price fast.
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: We’re not real estate agents, we are professional home buyers who purchase properties for cash from Charlotte area homeowners who are ready to sell. Once we purchase a home, 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: Many of the houses we purchase are below market value so we can resell them at a profit after we fix it up and complete any necessary repairs and remodels. When we purchase a home for cash with our local Cash Offer Program, we are looking to get a fair discount on the property. In our experience, those homeowners that appreciate a cash offer and would like to close as quickly as possible aren’t expecting a large “windfall” with the sale. They want to sell with as little hassle as possible and on the date that works for them.
If that’s what you’re looking for, give us a call at 704-707-6016, and let’s see if we can come to a win-win price for your home in NC. Our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you don’t have to move forward with our cash offer… but it’s good to know what we’re offering!
Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: When we are coming up with a win-win cash offer for your property, there are a couple of things we consider:
- The location of the property
- What repairs are needed
- The current condition of the property
- The value of comparable houses sold in the area recently
Using all of this information, we 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: We charge NO fees or commissions when you sell your house directly to us. We’ll make you an offer and, if it’s a fit, we’ll close on the date of your choice. In most cases, we pay for the standard closing costs that attorneys and title companies charge. We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house and sell it for a profit. Once we buy the house from you, the responsibility is ours and you walk away without the burden of the property and its payments. It’s that easy!
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents will show your property to any prospective buyers they find, and then takes a percentage of your final sale price as their commission. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 3 to 6% of the sale price of your house. This means if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay between $3,000 to $6,000 in commissions to an agent. That’s a lot of money to be taken out of your home sale!
Agents provide a great service for those that can wait 90+ days to sell and who don’t mind giving up some of that sale price to pay their agent’s commission, but that’s where JMS Home Buyers LLC is different. We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. Our company buys the house directly from you. Because we use our own cash to purchase your house, we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple of days (sometimes even the same day) and close on the date that works best for you. We don’t use bank financing to buy properties, which allows us to close quickly.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my information?
A: There is absolutely zero obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll take a look at things and, if the property fits our buying criteria, we will make you an all-cash offer that we hope will be a slam dunk. From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us. We want you to decide what’s right for you.
