Iconic Home Solutions started buying houses in North Carolina in 2011. Since then, we have expanded to buy houses fast for cash in nationwide! 

 

WE ARE NOT REAL ESTATE AGENTS… we are real cash home buyers!! It means we do not charge you fees or commissions to sell your house fast to us — it’s truly 100% FREE to sell your house fast for cash to Iconic Home Solutions! 

 

We never waste your time, and we provide the simplest and easiest process to sell your home – That’s our GUARANTEE! And if we are not the best fit to buy your house, we’ll be honest with you. Then, we will help connect you with the person or company that is the better fit in your home. Yes, we buy houses fast for cash, but we our mission is to help as many homeowners in our communities as we can. That’s who we are. That’s what we’ve been doing since 2011. 

Iconic Home Solutions: 

  • We do not charge fees or commissions when we buy your house… IT’S 100% FREE! 
  • We will buy your house on your timeline — whether it be immediately or a few months from now, we will develop a timeline that works for you. 
  • We buy houses As-Is. That means no need for you to fix anything or remodel or even clean. We will take your house off your hands as it is right now. 

 

A Real Estate Agent: 

  • Typically charges 3% of the house’s sales price as their commission, plus you are stuck paying another 3% for the buyer’s agent. 6% in total real estate fees can be a large chunk of the money you are supposed to get. Closing costs and other buying costs are then tacked on later. So, expect more out of your pocket. 
  • To sell a home, an agent typically wants to get it “market ready.” That means the aesthetics and functions of the home need to be as marketable as possible. As a result, do not be surprised to be requested to make upgrades, clean, and pay for repairs even before listing. 
  • An agent does not guarantee a closing date because all buyers that will be looking at your house during showings are using bank financing. That dependency requires time for inspections, appraisals, renegotiations, and uncertainties. In total, the process can take a minimum of 60 or longer, just to find the right buyer with the right financing. It is common to wait several months. 
  • Usually, a buyer who finds your house on the MLS will ask you to make repairs before closing. (That will be money out of your pocket.) They might also ask for Seller Concessions” For money toward closing costs, repairs, etc. This usually comes at the last minute and is unexpected (aka, more money out of your pocket). 
  • Sometimes selling with an agent is not for everyone. It is common for owners to go with a real estate agent simply out of convenience, like they are family, friends, or colleagues. However, it is also common to vet if they are the best in their field. Many are real estate agents part-time. Many also cannot guarantee a simple, smooth, and fast option that results in cash in your hand. 
  • First, one of our team members will answer the phone or give you a call after you fill out the form to ask basic questions about the home. 
  • Next, we will set an appointment to come to look at the home, OR we will ask you to send pictures or a video of the home. 
  • We’ll then identify what repairs need to be done and how much the house could sell on the open market. 
  • Based on that, we will present you with our cash offer. 
  • Our team is here to guide you at any time during the process and answer any questions.  

 

We will give you a call – AND THATS IT. We never distribute your information to anyone else. We take pride in helping owners in our neighborhood. So, we would never jeopardize that relationship by giving away or selling your information. 

We found giving homeowners options on how to sell their property immensely helpful. Though we primarily make cash offers to buy houses. Alternatively, we can discuss other ways to sell the home in what is called a creative offer. *  

  • If you own your property free and clear, we will make a seller financing offer where we would pay you some money down and make equal monthly payments to you.  
  • The other creative offer we make is we can take over your mortgage payments and give you some cash in hand at closing. 

* With creative offers, we can offer you more. The more time incorporated into the agreement, the more we can offer. For example, we can pay you more money over 5 years, broken into monthly payments, as opposed to paying cash fast in 2 weeks. 

With each option, we will explain in detail to help you make the best decision for yourself. Our goal is to make the selling process as easy and helpful as possible. 

Here is everything included in every offer we make: 

  • We pay 100% of the closing costs- making it 100% FREE to sell your house fast to us. 
  • Since we are not agents, there is no 3% or 6% commission. 
  • Flexibility- we can close on YOUR timeline/schedule. 
  • We’ll buy your house as-is. No remodel. No cleaning. Nothing is needed to sell to us. 
  • Our promise and commitment to making the process simple, easy, and fast. 

Nope!When you call us, fill out a form, or request an offer from us, you are never obligated to do anything at all. With our cash offer, you can take it or leave it. We are committed to providing the most value to our community no matter what. 

In-person appointments usually take 30-60 minutes. We will work around your schedule. We can be flexible around your schedulecoming over in the evenings or on weekends. However, do know that if you send us pictures the same day we chat, the faster we can get you a cash offer. We found sending pictures through text, email, or uploading them directly into our company folder is efficient for homeowners. 

1 person will come by. In some circumstances, another person, like a contractor or another team member may join. Either way, you will be notified of who exactly you can expect. 

Escrow” is a real estate term that describes third-party handling of funds, usually by a closing attorney or title company. You will enter Escrow once you decide to sell your house & enter into an agreement with us. 

Escrow” is an arrangement made between the buyer (Iconic Home Solutions) and the homeowner in which an independent, unbiased professional company handles the money. They can also handle documents, and other special assets needed to make the sale final. This is being done to protect all parties involved in the transaction. 

This third-party handling of funds is usually a closing attorney or title company. 

A typical transaction takes about 10-14 days to get everything in order. That includes, but is not limited to clear title search, ensuring the proper funds are present, documents are signed, etc. That is done to ensure a safe and smooth process for all parties. 

YOU GET TO CHOOSE THE CLOSING DATE!!We can work on your timeline. The usual timeframe people choose is about 30 days (about 4 and a half weeks), and the fastest we can get things done is approximately 10-14 days (which is generally how quickly the title company can get things done). There have been exceptions where it is done even faster. 

When you decide to sell your house to us, we will agree to a short, easy-to-understand 2-page contract, and that is it. In plain English, it states that you will be selling us your house. We try to make it as easy as possible and therefore, we do not hide anything. 

More paperwork is involved at closing, which is all handled by the title company. The number of documents depends on what each county, city, & state requires when you sell a home. Our process is fast, simple, and straightforward. 

ABSOLUTELY NOT! That is one of the main benefits of working with us. We buy homes in as-is condition. No repairs. No remodels. No cleaning.  

Moreover, if you need a cash advance to move or need help moving, let us know- we are more than happy to accommodate your needs. 

ABSOLUTELY NOT! Again, that is another main benefit of working with us. We take pride in making the process as simple and straight forward as possible for homeowners in our community. We will guide you through the process every step of the way, making everything 100% clear. 

We get asked this one a lot, and we always love answering! So, it depends on the house, the location, and what we have recently closed in on. Sometimes we buy a house for cash and keep it to add to our rental portfolio. Sometimes we buy a house and then sell it with owner financing to folks who cannot qualify for a bank loan but are tired of renting. Sometimes we rehab the house and sell it ourselves. 

Feel free to ask us during the transaction. Again, we take immense pride in being straight-forward and transparent. We also want what is best for our neighborhoods. 

The first thing we do with unwanted items is analyze what was left behind to see if any items are usable, in good condition, etc., to give to local charities or families who are in need.  

For other items that we cannot see someone else benefiting from, we discard them safely. 

 

We get asked this a lot, and we are glad to answer. Most cash home-buying companies are concerned about making a profit instead of helping people. Do not get us wrong, we are a business, and just like everyone else, we have to  feed our families too. 

Nonetheless, we have been helping communities for more than a decade. We genuinely care about the people we help. The offers we make and the strategy we have for the homes after closing always has the communities’ best interests in mind. We have always taken pride in helping homeowners, and we will always stand true to our mission. 

Each homeowner is different. Every house is different. But the end goal is the same – offer as much value to you and the communities we serve as possible. 

 Give us a call. We are confident that the Iconic Home Solutions difference will be evident on your first phone call with us!

“How does your company come up with the offer for my property?”

This is probably one of the most complex mathematical questions out there… just kidding haha!!!

It’s actually pretty simple:

On the form you can fill out to get your cash offer for your house in North Carolina, there will be some more questions we ask about the beds, baths, repairs needed and other additional information that’ll really help us get the full scoop on your house. Once we get this… our team goes into full-on analysis mode! We will look at your home’s address & repairs needed as our main 2 identifiers for our offer.

1. Property ARV

Let’s say a house is worth $150,000, after fixing it up 100% with nice granite counters, brand new appliances, brand new roof & HVAC, etc. (you get the idea). We get this worth/value based on houses that have sold in your area that are comparable to your house. We call these “comps.”

This is called your “After Repair Value”, which is otherwise known as a house’s ARV.

When we offer cash, we purchase houses at 70% of the ARV. This percentage gives us enough room to make a profit after assuming the time and risk of rehabbing the house into a brand new condition to be sold. We also have to assume our holding costs, realtor fees when we sell and a whole lot more.

** We are able to actually make other, what we call “creative” offers that allow us to offer more for your house than 70% of the ARV minus repairs. We’ll get there down below🙂

2. Repairs Needed

Now, in our example of a house being worth $150,000 after being fully renovated to a “brand new” status, let’s assume this house we are buying to fix up needs the following done to it:
  1. ➤ The kitchen is outdated and needs updated.
  2. ➤ There are leaks coming from the roof.
  3. ➤The whole house needs painted and new flooring too.

Estimated Repairs = ~$25,000.

Now that we know the house’s ARV, as well as the repair costs associated with fixing it up, we can now make our max offer.

3. Our Offer

Here’s our formula when we buy a house for cash:

ARV * 70 % – Repairs = Our Offer

Let’s use the numbers from our example to give you a real life “case study” if you will.

  1. ARV = $150,000
  2. Repairs = $25,000
  3. $150,000 * 70 % = $105,000
  4. $105,000 – $25,000 = $80,000

On this example property, we’d be able to offer $80,000 in cash!

Other Offers We Can Make

— Our Creative Offers ALWAYS Put MORE MONEY In Your Pocket —

In addition to cash offers, we also make some, what we call, “creative” offers to folks that result in actually paying you MORE for your house than the above formula.

The more time you give us, the more we can pay you.

Here’s how it works: If you own a property free and clear with no mortgages or liens, we’re able to offer a “some now, some later” type of an offer structure where we pay you some money down, while we pay the rest over equal monthly payments.

If you have an existing mortgage, we can offer you some cash to walk away with, and we’ll take over the responsibility of paying your mortgage payments.

Folks tend to love accepting these offers because it provides more long-term security for their families, as we pay them much more money over time.

These offers are done on a house-by-house basis because each situation is different, but here’s an example of a deal we structured with someone recently:

Our cash offer to this homeowner was only $65,000, but we were able to offer $80,000 with a creative offer (that’s $15,000 MORE!!!). We gave him $15,000 down, and are making equal monthly payments of $500 to him per month. Our guaranteed monthly payment covers about 75% of this person’s new mortgage at their new place. This seller loved it because it provided peace of mind with their new house.
