Frequently Asked Questions
From Real Estate Buyers, Sellers and Business Propfessionals
How does the process work when selling my house to you?
The process is very simple. You can either fill out the fast offer form or give us a call to give us information about the house you want to sell. If the house is one that would fit our investment criteria we will schedule to see the house. When we meet you at the house we walk through and look at what repairs or other changes are necessary. Using this information, we can usually make you an offer on the spot. If we come to an agreement on a price, we will draw up a contract that is then taken to a title company. The title company prepares for the closing. You receive your money for the house at the closing and you’re done!
Do you buy houses that need a lot of repairs?
Of course. Most of the houses we buy need repairs. Those are the ones we actually prefer. Don’t worry about any level of repairs. We can handle anything.
Do you buy houses that do not need any repairs?
If you have a house that does not need repairs, don’t worry, we also buy those.
How long does it take to get an offer?
We can usually see the house and make you an offer on the spot. This typically happens within 24 hours if you are able to show the property or give access to it.
How long does it take to sell my house and get the money?
If absolutely necessary, we can close in as fast as 3 days. Typically, we schedule closing for 2-3 weeks but are willing to set it to be whenever is convenient for you. So whether you want to close within a week or a month, we can usually accommodate it.
Are there any fees if I sell my house to you?
We do NOT charge fees to you to buy your house. We make our money with the investment and do not need to make any by charging you a commission.
If I request an offer from you, am I obligated to sell you my house?
Absolutely not! You have nothing to lose. It doesn’t hurt to see what we can offer you for your house. So why not give us a call?
Will you still buy my house even if there is a tenant living there?
Yes. Even if the house has a tenant, with or without a lease, we are still interested in making you an offer to buy the house. No problem.
Should I get pre-qualified for a loan before looking at homes or other properties?

How long does the seller have to respond to my offer?
It varies depending on the circumstances, but generally the life of your offer can vary from 12 hours to 3 or 4 days.
What if my offer is rejected?
If your offer is rejected, meaning the seller declines and doesn’t counter your offer, you have the right to submit another offer. It’s not common that an offer is rejected unless the offer is below low market value.
Do I have the option to have any inspections?
Yes, you will have the option to perform several types of inspections. When you submit your purchase offer, the offer can be contingent upon a satisfactory inspection such as pest inspection, chimney inspection, radon test, and other inspection types.
What’s the next step after an offer has been accepted?
After an offer is accepted and before the closing date, usually any inspections will be completed. After the inspections are completed you will complete a formal mortgage application, and lastly the title, abstract, survey, and any miscellaneous paperwork is completed.
When is the closing date?
It’s important to understand that the closing date is a target and not a guarantee. The closing date in the contract isn’t necessarily the date you will own the property. Tiger Investment Group, Inc. will assist you with your purchase from start to finish and do everything we can to make sure you take ownership of your purchased property as close to the targeted closing date as possible.
