FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions
What’s a professional homebuyer? That’s a great question and we’ve heard it many times over the years. We thought it would nice to put together the most commonly asked questions we get at Forge Property Solutions . Our FAQ will explain why and how we do what we do! Take a look, and if you still have questions, please reach out right away! We’d love to talk to you!
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: Great question. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses in Stockton 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.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: Many of the houses we purchase are below market value. We do this so we can spend the money fixing them up and getting them ready to either be sold to a new family or rented out. This is how we make our profit, by offering fair, cash offers on homes, fixing them up, and reselling them for a higher price. In our experience, when homeowners come to us for help they aren’t necessarily expecting a large “windfall” on the property. They usually appreciate that we can offer cash, we close very quickly, we don’t require them to spend money fixing up the house, or to pay agent commissions. Does that sound like something that would benefit you? Let’s take a look at your house and your situation and see if we can come up with a win-win solution. If you like our all-cash offer, great! We move ahead and close in about 21 days. At any time, you can decide you don’t like our offer and move on to a different option.

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Our process is very straightforward. We look at the location of the property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the property, and the values of comparable houses sold in the area recently. We look at how much we’ll have to pay to fix up the house and what we think we can sell it for once it’s been renovated. We take many pieces of information into consideration to 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: No. 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. If you used a listing agent to sell your house, you’d most likely have to pay thousands of dollars in commissions. We pay with cash and we’re not realtors, so no commissions, no hassle, and no extra fees. We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house (if any) and sell it for a profit (we’re taking the risks here on whether we can sell it for a profit or not, once we buy the house from you… the responsibility is ours and you walk away without the burden of the property and its payments… and often with cash in your hand).
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Quite different. We’re buyers. Real estate agents list properties. The agent will market your house and hope they attract a qualified buyer. Sometimes this can take months. Once they have a buyer you head into inspections, negotiations, appraisal, and closing. At the end of it all, the agent takes a percentage of your sales price as their commission for helping you. 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. At Forge Property Solutions , our company actually buys houses. We don’t list houses. Since we’re actually the ones buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash… we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple of days. We can give you a cash offer today and it’s up to you to decide whether it’s good or not. We don’t bind you by contracts or pressure you to work with us. We are community members first, business people second. We care about our clients and their situations.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is absolutely zero obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll take a look at things, maybe set up a call with you to find out a bit more, and make you an all-cash offer that’s fair for you and fair for us. From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us… and we won’t hassle you, won’t harass you… it’s 100% your decision and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.
