Frequently Asked Questions

We've got answers

Maybe you have a few questions. That’s okay; most people do. So here’s a quick collection of some of the questions people ask us… along with our answers. If you still have a question, don’t hesitate to contact us (or give us a call) and we’ll be happy to answer it for you.

Will you be actually buying my house o will you be listing it on the MLS?

We are not real estate agents, we actually buy homes that meet our criteria. From there we renovate the house and either resell it or keep it in our inventory.

Do you pay fair prices for properties?

We do offer a fair price for properties. We seek out properties that meet our criteria, most need renovations and upgrades. The needed renovations and upgrades are factored into the fair price that we offer. This benefits the seller as there are no need for repairs, we offer fair cash offer, and quick closings.

How do you determine the price to offer on my house?

Our process is very transparent and straightforward. We look at the location of the property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the property, along with the values of comparable houses sold in the area recently.

Are there any fees or commission to work with you?

There are NO fees or commissions when you sell your house. This is how we are different than traditional method of selling your house: We’ll make you an offer, and if it’s a fit then we’ll buy your house and pay for the closing costs. No hassle. No fees. No obligation.

How do you make money?

We make our money after we pay for repairs/upgrades on the house and sell it for a profit. It is a risk we take but are confident will be a win-win for everyone involved.

How are you different from a real estate agent?

Many real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them. The agent shows the properties to prospective buyers if there are any (the average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 6-12 months) and then take a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 4-6% of the sale price of your house. Example: if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll be responsible to pay between $4,000 – $6,000 in commissions to an agent). Agents can provide a great service for those who are into seeking a quick close or unable to make necessary repairs.

That is the difference.  We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. Since we’re actually the one buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash… we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple of days.

Is there any obligation when I submit my info?

There is absolutely zero obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll take a look at things, and make you an all-cash offer that’s fair for you and fair for us. From there, it’s 100% your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us… and we won’t hassle you, won’t harass you… it’s 100% your decision and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.

What kind of homes does Holy City Partners purchase?

Holy City Partners purchases a variety of homes including single family homes, duplexes, apartments, townhouses, farms and land. We’ve purchased homes from a 19th century home to modern-day homes. We even take on homes with serious foundation problems, mold, and rodent infestations. We purchase homes all over Charleston and the surrounding areas including Mount Pleasant, Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms, James Island, Folly Beach, West Ashley, Summerville, North Charleston and Ladson.

Why sell my home to Holy City Partners?

There are many reasons homeowners sell us their homes. One reason is most people don’t want to deal with the inconvenience of listing their home on the market and having to wait on the right buyer to come along, especially pertaining to homes needing costly repairs or updating. While others simply just need to sell their house quickly, like in the case of foreclosure, relocation, divorce, or in some cases their home has sat on the market for too long.

Does it matter what kind of condition the home is in?

No, at Holy City Partners we purchase homes as they are. This means we will make you an offer regardless of any structural damage, costly repairs, or if the house is outdated! 

How much does it cost to get Holy City Partners to come look at my home?

Absolutely nothing! We will come inspect your property and give you an offer with no obligation on your behalf. In contrast to other home buyers and real estate we do not charge an additional fee once we have purchased your property.

How long does it normally take to receive an offer?

In most cases, all you will have to do is answer a few questions about your property. These questions could be the number of bedrooms, bathrooms, the overall condition of the home and the location of your house. With answers to these simple questions we can give you an offer estimate over the phone. Next, we will schedule a time to come view your property. This will allow us to confirm the property details and give you a formal offer immediately after our assessment.

What factors determine how much Holy City Partners will pay for my property?

There are many factors that Holy City Partners looks at when making an offer on a property. These factors include the location of the property, the condition the property is in, if repairs are needed, and lastly how much comparable properties are selling for. Our evaluation will be thoroughly explained so that you have a complete understanding of our offer for your property.

How soon will I receive the cash?

You get the cash as soon as you close! In most cases, we close home purchases in as little as 7 days and as soon as we close you get your cash. However, in some cases you may be eligible for a cash advance before we close on your property.

When will we need to move out of our home?

This is something that varies from home to home and depends on your scenario. In most cases, we prefer to not take on homes that have a closing date longer than 3 months out from us putting the home under contract. However, in some cases we allow people to stay up to 1 month after we purchase the property and this typically comes with no charge to you.

What happens if a family member owned the property and they didn’t leave a will?

At Holy City Partners we have a team that is dedicated to expediting the estate process. An essential asset on our team is a group of attorneys that will help push the process along and make it easier on you. This all comes at absolutely NO costs to you!

What if the owner/co-owner no longer lives in the area of the property?

A majority of the closings can be done remotely. The only thing you need to do is meet with the notary and sign the paperwork which we can set for you!

What if my mortgage is not current?

Don’t hesitate to call us immediately! Some banks are very diligent on taking properties back from the owner. At Holy City Partners we are very experienced in negotiating with the banks and in some cases, we can reduce the amount of penalties you may owe. 

What if my property includes a tax lien or other liens?

This is a unique scenario that completely depends on the circumstances at hand. However, we have purchased properties with mechanics liens, tax liens and HOA liens.

Does the property need to be cleaned at the completion of a deal?

No, you can just take the items you want or you can let us know what your leaving at the property and we can arrange for the property to be emptied. 

What areas do you purchase homes in?

We buy homes in all areas of Charleston. The majority of the purchases come in Mount Pleasant, Summerville, Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms, James Island, and West Ashley. However, if you aren’t listed on the list don’t hesitate to contact us because we can really purchase anywhere near by and if we can’t we can refer you to someone who can.

What kind of properties does Holy City Partners purchase?

We purchase properties such as homes, apartment buildings, duplexes, townhouses, farms and land.

How do I know that I can trust you with my property?

We will provide you with a significant deposit on your property, along with a proof of funds from a known bank, and use a Indiana Real Estate contract.
