5 Misconceptions People Have About Professional Home Buyers in Maryland

We buy houses in Maryland. Have you ever heard bad things about professional home buyers but you weren’t 100% sure if what they were saying was true? Although these opinions are disparaging we will do our best to show you how they are wrong. We are homebuyers in Maryland and we can offer you an opinion from the inside of a home buying operation.

Having the wrong idea about something can hold you back and can often prevent you from making the right choices in life. When it comes to selling your home, which in many cases is one of the largest investments of a lifetime, it is important to consider all options available to you as a homeowner. We will explore 5 misconceptions people have about professional home buyers in Maryland.

Home Buyers are Unethical

MYTH! Swindling unsuspecting homeowners out of hard-earned equity, day and night are not what we wake up and look forward to every day. Sadly, this is a common misconception people have about professional home buyers in Maryland. We invite you to research our company, as well as anyone else you do business with. The truth is our motivation every day is helping people. That is why we stop and take the time to listen to you about your goals and any issues in reaching them. With an understanding of your unique circumstances, we can help you make the right decision.  Even if working with a real estate agent is the better option for you, we will tell you so! We encourage you to explore your options of selling to an agent versus a direct sale to The House Guys.

Clean and Repair

We are excited about renovating properties, increasing their value, and improving the overall living conditions of neighborhoods. Believing they still must clean and repair the home before they sell it is another misconception people have about professional home buyers in Maryland. Unless your home is brand-new, most homes need at least a minimum of prep work in order to be listing ready on the traditional real estate market. When working with a professional buyer, there is absolutely no need for you to even worry about wiping down the counters before you leave. In many cases, you can just leave behind any furniture or other items. With our experience we understand all the risks involved in buying a home as-is, we also understand the relief this can offer to an already strained homeowner.

Closing Date

There is no guaranteed closing date in traditional real estate listings. Unfortunately, this has led to the misconception that the same is true of professional home buyers in Maryland. In truth, it is quite the opposite.  One of the major benefits of working with professional buyers is the guarantee of a closing date, usually within 30 days or less. Depending on the reason for selling, the ability to close so quickly may ward off financial disaster for homeowners with looming foreclosures or other financial or personal strains forcing the sale.

Getting Paid

Being paid at the time of signing the purchase agreement is another one of the misconceptions people have about professional home buyers in Maryland. The amount we offer when you sign the sales agreement is the amount you’ll receive at closing, there won’t be any other costs to you to sell your home. When exploring your options, make sure to educate yourself on the true costs of selling your home to iBuyers. Unlike iBuyers, we will not wholesale your home, and we have no hidden fees. Take the time to discover the truth about the costs deducted from the sales price at closing when selling your home in a more traditional method, either as a for sale by owner listing or with a real estate agent. All real estate transactions unfortunately require that you receive the transfer of funds and get your payment at closing. We understand completely how urgent the need can be for quick access to cash. Through vast experience, professional buyers understand that in many cases a direct sale is the best option in resolving serious impending financial disaster. The good news? With a professional buyer, you won’t be waiting very long for your payment.


Professional buyers are a part of the community and have dedicated our careers to helping Maryland become a better place for everyone. We offer extremely fair prices and take the time to fully explain our process. Through educating themselves, they can confidently disregard the negative misconceptions people have about professional home buyers in Maryland. The benefits offered through this option of home sales can also diminish personal adversity for homeowners in Maryland. There may be a family illness forcing a move, a new job that has created the urgency for relocation.  A sudden death or illness which means they can no longer afford or properly maintain the property or they do not want to reside in the home another day, after living there many years with a lost loved one.
