“We are not desperate to sell our home in IN, nor are we in a hurry!”

Believe it or not, the majority of sellers we have purchased houses in Indianapolis from were not desperate to sell at all quite frankly, nor where they trying to escape foreclosure. Most of our clients choose us simply because they either have had bad experiences listing their home with an agent, or they just don’t want to deal with repairs, constant walk-throughs or any other typical hassle one experiences while selling a house the traditional way.

Because we buy houses in any condition, as is, no matter the circumstance, location or issue you’re facing (if any), we often are a great option to consider to sell quickly and with ease.

Let us figure out the numbers and how much we can offer you in cash for your home in IN, and we will advise you if listing with an agent would be a better choice or not. After all, it doesn’t hurt to get an offer from us – all of our fair cash offers are completely free without any obligation to accept!

Honestly, you absolutely do not have to choose us!

We are not desperate. We do not need to make a huge profit on each deal. By all means, do not let us tell you why you should choose us.

We will however tell you how we are different from the rest:

We know we know, everyone says this, but we’re sure you saw this yourself when you found us online at the top of Google! What does that mean? It means the many people that we have dealt with enjoyed working with us. We do what we say we’re going to do and can be trusted to get through the transaction. We are pride ourselves on being the right choice amongst a sea of imposters.

We focus on you!

Let’s make sure you get cash for your house. Whether we buy your Indianapolis house in cash, or another company that we have vetted, spoken to, trust and trained, gives you a higher offer, you can be certain you will get the highest offer on your house!

Since 2009, we have helped more than 100 customers in the Indianapolis area sell their home quickly and for cash. We are locals living in Indianapolis so we know the neighborhoods in our region extremely well, and for that reason, we can pay prices that are competitive and deliver on our offer.

To make you a fair offer and buy your house we need to gather some basic information about your house. Our acquisition manager, will follow up with you to gather additional information about your house.

For example, is there a garage? Is the basement finished? What’s the overall condition of your property? How long have you owned the house? Are there any outstanding liens on the property? Do you currently have a mortgage?

The sooner we get all of the relevant information, the sooner we can get you the fair cash offer that you deserve for your home.

If you provide us with all the information that we need during the initial phone call, and if all the paperwork is completed promptly, and you have clear title and there are no problems, we can often complete the purchase of your property in 7 days. However, to get the highest and best offer for your home we typically take 2-3 weeks so that we can complete our due diligence.

All liens and mortgages get paid off in full when you sell the house, any remaining balance over that amount goes to you after closing.

If the home is going through the foreclosure process, then time is of the essence and we need to act now. Most banks would prefer not to foreclose, and because of that we can sometimes negotiate with the bank to delay the foreclosure to give Home Sprout Properties more time to purchase the home.

1. We Determine the Market Value of Your Home in IN.

It all starts with a CMA ( Comparable Market Analysis). We look at all the houses that have recently been sold within a 1-mile radius of your house, that are very similar (comparable) to your house, (same square footage, number of beds/baths etc.).

We then look at the price they sold for. This gives us a very accurate market value of your house, if your house is in the exact same condition as these other houses that have been sold.

2. We Determine the Cost of Repairs.

The cost of repairs is the cost associated with bringing your house to a very similar condition as all the other houses similar to yours in the area that have recently been sold. During the walkthrough we will note what needs to be repaired. We want to keep the costs down so we only repair what really needs some TLC. In addition, when we keep costs low that allows us to give you the highest possible offer for your home!

3. We Make You an Offer.

Based on our findings which we’ll share with you, we will present you with our offer. Because we are transparent, we will explain in full detail how we came up with the offer and will show you the repairs and the CMA of your market.

The offer is a no obligation to accept offer. You can take it or leave it without any cost to you.

If you accept our offer, we can discuss a closing date where you will receive your cash and be completely done with the house! Congratulations, you just sold your house without any hassle, fees or commissions

Nope, not at all. Don’t worry about anything. Take whatever it is you want to take and leave the rest. And we mean it. Food in the fridge, clothes on the floor, mattresses, desks, furniture, heck we once found a racoon carcass in a wall. Gave us a good scare but we don’t judge. Believe us when we say, we have seen it all. So why not make things easier and just take what you don’t want to part with and let us deal with the rest?

There is no money out of your pocket. All fees are paid by us (we get it back when we sell the rehabbed house to another buyer).
