Frequently Asked Questions

Maybe you have a few questions. No worries, we find that many people do. We have gathered the questions people ask us the most, plus our answers. If you still have a question after reading through the list, please feel free to contact us anytime. We are happy to talk further and explain how we do what we do.

Q:  Will you list my house on the MLS or buy it?
A: This is also an excellent question. You see, we aren’t real estate agents. We won’t be listing your house. Instead, we serve as professional home buyers all over Rhode Island. We purchase properties quickly, and we pay in cash. After that, we fix up the house to relist it and potentially turn a profit by selling it.

Q:  Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A:  It is definitely true that we can’t pay the full retail value that a house may have. This is so we can maybe make some money by selling your house to someone else later. We do hope to get a nice discount on a house. However, people do still find value in our services. People don’t necessarily expect a massive gain from the fast sale of their house. They appreciate that we pay in all cash, can close the deal fast, and do not need to shell out a dime to pay for repairs or upgrades before selling the property. If any of that sounds good, check out your cash offer! We would love to help you sell your house fast. You don’t need to paint your house or repair a thing. And, of course, if you don’t like our offer, you are under zero obligation to accept it. You won’t need to feel obligated to get an offer from us, but it is a good idea to see what we can offer you!

Q:  How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A:  This is an excellent question, too. We are more than happy to explain how we put together our offers. We consider where the property is, its current condition, the value of nearby houses and properties, and what other houses sell for in the general area. With all of these things, we will put together your offer. We make sure that our offer works for both you and us.

Q:  Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: Here is a large difference between us and the traditional method for selling your house. You won’t pay any fees or commissions when you sell your house directly to us here at Lyon Home Buyers. We will put together your offer in just one business day. You can take your time deciding if you’d like to accept or not. We will buy your house with zero fees or commission payments if it fits. We make money later by investing time and energy into fixing up your house so we can resell it. The risk is all on us. After we buy the house, you can walk away with no obligation to worry about your house ever again! You can get paid with cash in your hands and not deal with another payment.

Q:  How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: A real estate agent puts houses on the MLS. In doing so, they hope to find a buyer for their client. They show and present the property to potential buyers. This process can take a while to yield results! Once they find a buyer, they make their money by charging a commission. This is usually about 3-6% of the total selling price for the house. While that doesn’t sound like much, it adds up to thousands of dollars.

This is a great service that real estate agents provide. However, not everyone has time to wait months to find a buyer. And luckily for you, we aren’t real estate agents but direct cash buyers! We’d buy your house directly from you; no waiting game is required. Best of all, since we pay in cash, we can make a decision to buy your house right away. You won’t need to wait for our purchase to get approved, deal with any open houses or showings, or fix the house before selling. It really can be this easy!

Q:  Is there any obligation when I submit my information?
A: Your direct cash offer really comes with no obligation to accept. Tell us about your house, and we will look into it immediately. We may wish to schedule a call to touch base and find out more about your house. After that, we will finalize your offer so you can decide whether you are interested in accepting it. We make offers that are fair to both our pocketbook and yours. We give potential clients plenty of time to consider things and decide what is right for them and their house. We want you to decide for yourself what you’d like to do.
