The Top Questions We Get From Home Sellers in Maryland

Professional home buyers have been around for a while, but many sellers may not understand the process. You may not be aware that working with professional buyers like us at Clipper City Home Buyers, can save time, money and stress.

What if my house needs work?

It doesn’t matter! When we look at properties, we know what repairs will be needed and we take on that expense. We do this so that you can walk away with what we’ve offered you and can sell your house as-is.

How long will it be until closing?

The great thing about working with investors like us is that we can typically close very fast, sometimes in as little as a week or two. If you need more time, that’s ok too!

Will I get a fair offer?

Our offer allows us to stay in business while still offering you a fair price that works for you. We take many factors into account with our offers, such as location, the age and condition of the property, and taking any repairs into account. We look at what other homes like yours are selling for and work back from there.

Do I have to pay any closing costs?

Nope! We cover the closing costs. There may be expenses like taxes due or liens on the property, or judgments, and they will be deducted from what you walk away with. Typically, there is no need to be worried about coming up with money towards these things.

Do we charge commissions or fees?

Another nope! When we make you a cash offer, it is the actual amount you’ll receive. There are lots of commissions and fees in a traditional real estate listing that you won’t have to worry about with us.

3 Signs You Should Sell Your House As-Is In Baltimore

One of the top reasons for selling your house as-is, is that no matter the condition, you can simply walk away free and clear of the house that no longer suits your life, no matter the reason.

Here’s three signs that it might be time to sell your house as-is in Baltimore.


If you are facing financial struggles and need to find more affordable permanent housing but need to sell your current house first, this is a sign you should sell your house as-is in Baltimore. The best decision about selling could be by working with a direct buyer like us at Clipper City Home Buyers who will help you compare the costs of listing and what you would earn from a sale on the market, as well as the figure used to get our cash offer. We never charge commissions, and no hidden fees will be there at the closing; our offer is what you get.

Time Crunch

If you’re counting down the days until your house sells, this could be another sign it could be a fit to sell your house as-is. No matter why you need to sell in a hurry, the holding costs as the months pass can become stressful. Selling directly to a professional investor like us at Clipper City Home Buyers can save you time and stress.

Major Repairs

Selling To Clipper City Home Buyers vs. Listing With A Local Maryland Agent

Even in a seller’s market like Baltimore Maryland, it’s wise to look at your options and see what will help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. While you may be able to get a higher sales price listing with a local agent, that doesn’t mean you’ll make more money in your pocket with less headaches. Check out this breakdown to see your options.

Work the numbers and see which way helps you get there…

When you really work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your Maryland house offers. Sure, here at Clipper City Home Buyers, we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house…but we offer other benefits that the traditional house sale route can’t offer, such as….

From offer to close and cash in your hand, in as little as 7 days

You can get rid of the headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, etc. If you list your house and wait 90+ days to close, you’ll have to figure in all of the costs of holding onto that property during the listing and closing process.

Don’t worry about paying those pesky closing fees (we’ll take care of those)

Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in Maryland, we make it easy for you. We’ll pay all those closing costs. What we offer you is what you get (of course, minus any mortgage payoff or any other encumbrances on the property).

So when you add up the time you could save by working with us, the no-hassle experience, and the money you’ll save on commissions, fees, and holding costs while you wait to sell the traditional route…for many homeowners, selling to a professional home buyer is the best option.

Is it right for you?
