Frequently Asked Questions

1. Who Are The House Kingz?

The House Kingz LLC is a cash home buying company local to the Washington DC Metro area. We primarily purchase houses for cash, but if a cash offer isn’t a good fit, we provide home sellers with more creative real estate options (beyond the typical cash offer). Our goal is to provide the seller with the greatest benefit from working with us to achieve a fast, hassle free home sale.

2.  What Do Cash Home Buyers Do?

We buy houses in Washington DC and also offer cash for houses in Virginia and can help you sell your house in Maryland. Any type, any condition, any size. That’s it! We’re the people to reach out to if you want to sell your house without dealing with agents and the traditional listing process. Even if time isn’t the issue, you might still like to sell your home without your neighbors knowing and without your house getting scoped out by everyone online.

3.  Is a “We Buy Houses” Company Right For Me?

Most of the sellers we’ve worked with in Virginia, Maryland, and D.C. were not in a rush to sell. Most just wanted to list their home without the hassles of the drawn out, traditional agent process. Or, they didn’t want to deal with repairs, showings, open houses, cleaning, and annoyances of fixing small details for a buyer.

Because we buy houses as-is, no matter the circumstance or condition, we offer a great option to sell quickly with simplicity.

Let us run you through the numbers and discuss how much we can offer you for your home. We’ll also guide you if listing with an agent would be more suitable. Ultimately, it doesn’t hurt to get an offer from The House Kingz. All of our offers are without obligation and 100% free!

4.  Will The House Kingz Pay a Fair Price For My Property?

Great question! Yes, we definitely pay fair and honest prices for properties.

Recognize though that there is a difference between a fair price and “market value.” If the house is in need of updates or repairs then that value will be taken into consideration when we make our offer. Sometimes we are able to use “creative financing” to curate an offer that works better for both parties. Every time we make an offer we present all possible opportunities.

5.  Will You List My House On The MLS?

No, we will not list your house on the MLS.

Our intention is to buy your house as-is and fix or update it to either sell for a profit or keep it as a rental. If we find out together that your situation is better suited for a real estate agent, we will recommend you to one of the top agents in the DMV.

6.  Should I Just Be Listing My House With An Agent?

Honestly, we don’t know.. yet!

We would need to take a look at your house, situation, expectations and timeline to give you a realistic answer. We are always happy to provide you with our professional recommendation.

Many homeowners do not understand the advantages and disadvantages of listing their house on the MLS. This is something to consider before working with a real estate agent or selling your home by owner.

7.  How Can You Serve DC, Maryland, and Virginia?

The House Kingz run a tight ship. Don’t be surprised if we answer your phone calls at 11pm or 5am! We work hard, and we’re here to serve you!

Over the years we have built up the cash, automated systems, and experience to make sure that selling your house to us is as simple as possible. We have built up our teams of attorneys, title companies, seo consultants, and management companies so we can spend the majority of our time focused on you.

8.  Is There Any Obligation When I Submit My Info?

There are no obligations.

We completely understand that you have options. We know there are many people out there dedicated to scamming and yearning to take advantage of sellers’ situations.

To differentiate ourselves from the other options, we make sure that you understand there are no costs to you when getting your free offer. You have absolutely nothing to lose.

We’ll make our offer, and if you accept it, great! You’ll have an on time closing and get paid quickly. If you do not accept our offer, we can assist in helping you determine the best solution for your home sale.

9.  Do I Need To Clean Or Fix Anything Before I Move Out?

No. Not even a little.

Take what you want and leave the rest to us. Mattresses, furniture, old paint cans, food in the fridge, it doesn’t matter to us. Make this process easy for yourself! If there are many items of value, and there is not a rush to close, we can work with a local estate sales group to auction any items before the sale.

10.  Do You Buy Houses Outside of the D.C. Metropolitan Area?

We have a sister company: “We Buy Houses in Delaware” where we offer cash for houses anywhere in Delaware! Beyond that, we have a network of other cash buyers and investors in other areas of the U.S. who we know and trust. Below is a list of investors in markets outside of the D.C. Metropolitan Area you may be interested in:
New Orleans, Louisiana
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
