Their Words Tell Our Story
Our customer’s experiences say it all and tell the story of our process. Simple, stress-free, timely, and without disappointments, that’s because our customer’s needs always come first.
Our Transparent, Streamlined Process
Our house buying process is open and transparent and you will never get any pressure along the way. When selling the traditional route, rest assured you will have many people coming into your home…from meetings with your agent, to stagers, to photographers all before your house ever hits the market. Then once the property is listed on the market, between open houses and showings you will have many, many strangers walking through your home. Our customers tell us they value the non-intrusive, streamlined approach we use that prevents all the strangers and the associated risk given the current health crisis.
The good news is that our process requires just one visit to your home by one of our local home sales advisors … that’s it! Check out the video to see how it works!
One of our home sales advisors will meet with you at your home to learn about your needs, hear your story and then make an evaluation.
Our home advisor will make a fair, no obligation cash offer within 24 hours – and explain how they arrived at the number.
Finally, we’ll close with a seamless title transfer without any last minute surprises. And that’s it! You walk away with your check, free of worry with no future house liability.
Meet Your Local Home Sales Advisors
At Homestead Road, it’s less about the homes we help people sell and more about the people we get to work with and assist.

At Homestead Road, we view every homeowner we work with as a relationship, not just a transaction. We are at our best when we can take the time to get to know a little about you, your needs and hear your story no matter what your situation so we can help you move forward, faster. And while the needs or circumstances may be similar or different among those customers, no matter your situation we pride ourselves in helping every homeowner with dignity, compassion and respect no matter what the circumstances.
Frequently Asked Questions
We understand selling your home is a big deal and you have questions. Homestead Road is here to help guide and advise you when it comes to selling your home.
Will you purchase my home that has known issues or needs major repairs?
Yes, that is exactly what we do every day as we buy houses as is in literally any condition. So even if your house has issues such as asbestos, lead paint, termites, pests, mold, water intrusion or is in need of major repairs to the structure, foundation, roof or has damage from freezing, we are interested. This is because we have built a very experienced and knowledgeable construction department have the expertise to handle a wide variety of issues and repairs.
Do you have any restrictions in respect to the types of homes you are willing to purchase?
While other home buyers and investors have a list of restrictions the limit the types of houses and properties they purchase, we are interested in a very broad array of properties with very little restrictions. We buy owner occupied and non-owner-occupied single family and multi-family properties including homes, condos, townhomes, duplexes and even mobile homes if you own the land it is located on. We purchase farms, cabins and property and acreage. We buy homes with easements, unique features and unlike others who will not buy homes where there is an association, we do. And while others may have a home age limitation, we buy houses of any age. In fact, we previously purchased a home from 1860!
What Does Homestead Road Do With The Houses It Purchases? Do You Rent Them, Tear Them Down, Remodel It For Resale?
Our business model was created for the primary purpose of purchasing homes, investing our time and money to refurbish them and ultimately resell them for a fair profit. For that reason, we do not buy homes to rent them. In respect to tear downs, we make every effort to avoid tearing a home down to rebuild it from ground up and most definitely prefer refurbishing and bringing them back to life. Of the over 1,000 homes we have purchased, we have only torn down less than you can count on one hand because their extremely dilapidated condition didn’t allow us to refurbish them in a way that was safe. In fact, Homestead Road often works with city housing abatement authorities and in the past has purchased and brought back to life dilapidated homes that were condemned by the city and soon to be torn down.
To be perfectly honest, other than getting to know our customers and providing a great customer experience, there’s nothing more we love to do than bring a home in need of some TLC back to life for the next family to own, enjoy and care for. Depending largely on the condition of the homes when we purchase them in conjunction with the local real estate market trends, the majority of the homes we purchase receive anywhere from minor updates such as cleaning, paint, flooring, fixtures while others receive major updates that might also include improvements and updates that range from new cabinets, roofing, HVAC, electrical upgrades.
Because our streamlined process doesn’t include a full home inspection by someone on our team or a third party, we occasionally find major issues with some of our homes after we purchase them. In those cases where the repair is too complex or costly for our construction team, we may elect to sell the home in its “as is” condition as it was purchased to a third-party investor who is in a better position to handle the major repairs. A good example of this we have run into relates to homes with septic tanks where the city requires an inspection and the cost to repair can easily exceed $25,000. In this type of case, we may elect to sell the property either to another investor or contractor who has interest and/or the resources to perform the septic work at a lower cost.
Will I get as much money as I would if I listed with an agent?
We often get the question “will you pay top dollar for my house?” The honest answer is, not always. Once you factor in the costs, hassles and time needed to sell on the open market, we think you will agree our offer is fair and competitive. If you work with us, you avoid all the time, energy and financial resources necessary to empty the house, fix it up, deal with all the fuss of ongoing showings. If you are comfortable with taking all the work and hassles on, then you may not be a good fit for us and should probably consider other alternatives to earn the highest possible price. In any case, there is no harm in calling us to set up a complimentary, no obligation consultation so you can make an informed decision.
What factors go into your offer price?
As to how we calculate our offers, our goal is to get to a fair and competitive offer price that considers your needs as well as our needs. The biggest factor is the current state of the home and considering the costs of repairs and improvements needed. We look at many other factors which include resent sales of other comparable homes in your area, costs of permits, city inspections (if required), cleanout costs including dumpster and sanitation as well as other related hard closing fees as well as holding financing costs and lastly a reasonable margin for our work. When we come forward with a purchase price offer, we are very transparent and open so that you understand how we calculated the offer for you to consider.
