We are certain you won’t be disappointed when you contact MJS Properties to sell your house privately. No matter what the condition of your home is in, no matter what challenge you are facing, we are here to help.  Save time, money and headaches. You don’t need to clean, make repairs, or complete renovations to upgrade your property to attract buyers.

Take what you want and leave what you don’t. It really is that simple and you can be assured you are dealing with someone who truly cares about what you’re facing.

You Have Questions, We Have Answers!

Is this a scam? Do I need a lawyer?

This is not a scam. You will be offered a fair, no-obligation offer that takes into consideration what expenses we need to pay to bring your home to market in a new and improved condition.  Selling your house privately is absolutely legal. You do not require an agent. But we do need to process the sale through real estate lawyers. If you have your own professional contact to represent you as the seller, great. You can utilize their services. If you don’t, you can google one or MJS Properties can recommend one of many professionals we have worked with in the past to represent you. We can even include the cost of legal fees in your cash offer so there’s nothing out of pocket required of you. We use a standard purchase and sale agreement and lawyers will exchange payment and keys upon closing.

How are you making money? Sounds too good to be true.

When we make our cash offer for your home, we have done a little homework to determine what the house is worth as is and what it would be worth after any cleaning, repairs, and upgrades. Our solid construction experience and knowledge of the industry allows us to make accurate estimates of what it would cost to perform the work plus lending costs and contingencies for unexpected challenges. Since we do the work ourselves, you aren’t paying a wholesaler their cut before they flip it to another who will do the work. Our level of expertise in estimating costs required to get the home market-ready ensures you are getting the most for your home right now.

Am I really selling for “cash”? How do I get paid?

Details of payment are outlined in the purchase agreement. Funds are held with a lawyer in a trust account. This is a bank account that only lawyers can access. On the closing date, the lawyers will ensure the transaction is firm, all conditions are met, and the paperwork is finalized. Our lawyer (representing buyer) sends your lawyer (representing seller) the money to purchase the property and you will receive the funds from your lawyer.

What is a house flipper?

House flipping is when a real estate investor buys houses and then sells them for a profit. A true “flip” is when the house is bought with the intention of quickly reselling.  Wholesalers will buy and sell very quickly to avoid high lending costs without doing any repairs or upgrades but keeping a profit. We approach our business a little differently. While we do buy your house and sell it for a profit, we take pride in transforming the property into something amazing that the next owners can move into and love living there. We are compensated for the work completed to improve the property, not from buying your home for less than its worth. We are essentially getting paid for the work you don’t have to do.

Are you a real estate agent?

No. We are not real estate agents or brokers. We are investors. We do not list properties or help you sell yours. We want to buy your property and pay you a fair price without conditions and we don’t charge commission. Selling your house with the help of a real estate agent may result in a higher price but what will it cost? How long will it take to clean it up and make repairs to get that higher price?  When you do get an offer, it will most likely be subject to a home inspection and you risk the need for even more expensive repairs. On top of that, now you need to negotiate the closing date which may or may not be ideal for your plans.  If you don’t mind the extra time, money and effort required to get a higher price, we are happy to refer you to some amazing agents that will be glad to help. If it sounds like too much work, reach out to us and we will make it easy!

Won’t I get more if I sell with a real estate agent?

Our fair, no-obligation cash offer may be less than the retail price offered if you were to list your home on the market. But you may not be ahead any money at the end of the day. You need to consider what it will cost for you to pay the agent’s commission, listing fees, closing fees, cost of cleaning, repairing disposal and staging. Is the higher price worth all the time, expense and inconvenience? On top of that, there is always a risk of the sale falling through if it doesn’t meet the inspection or your buyer can’t secure financing.  Leave the headaches to us. Reach out and we can view your home to provide an idea of the kind of work and time you need to invest to get your home market-ready compared to what you could walk away within a matter of days – cash in hand.

I’ve never sold a house before. What paperwork is involved?

We use a standard “Agreement of Purchase and Sale” used by real estate professionals throughout Ontario. It is a contract between the buyer and seller for the purchase of a particular property. It is several pages and summarizes what is being agreed to like price, any conditions, what exactly is being included or excluded, closing date, etc. Real Estate lawyers are familiar with these documents and we encourage you to have your lawyer review it prior to signing so everyone feels secure and comfortable.

How fast can I get my money?

We have a secure network of capital investors that allow us the flexibility to make a deal quickly. You choose a closing date that works best for you whether you need money fast before next month’s bills arrive or need some time to find a new place to live and make moving arrangements.

What other fees do I need to pay?

The beauty of selling your house privately is that we customize an all-inclusive offer that includes all expenses. No commission, no closing costs, no additional fees. Do you need help packing, making moving arrangements, or covering disposal costs? We can take care of all that when we determine our offer and what it will include so you know exactly how much money you keep without any added expenses. We can even incorporate legal fees into the offer if you wish.

My house doesn’t need much more than some paint and carpet. But I don’t want to deal with it. Are you still interested?

Consider MJS the “easy button” of selling your home. We will make a fair, no obligation offer for your home and then take care of any cosmetic improvements needed to get it ready for sale. Take what you want, leave the rest and walk away.

Can I sell my house without cleaning it out? It is almost a hoarding situation.

We buy houses in any condition. No cleaning or decluttering required at all. Just take what you want and leave what you don’t. We’ll take care of the rest. If you are dealing with a hoarding situation, this could be due to a mental health issue. We have experience working with homeowners facing a variety of challenges and are more than happy to help.

My house is so old and outdated. It needs a ton of work. Will you still buy it?

We buy houses in any condition. No cleaning or decluttering required at all. No repairs and no upgrades necessary. Just take what you want and leave what you don’t. We’ll take care of the rest. We have even transformed condemned properties into beautiful showpieces. We have the knowledge and experience to handle projects many would run from.

Are you local?

We are located in London, Ontario but have worked with many happy clients within driving distance across Southwestern Ontario.

What if I’m not ready yet? I just want some information.

We are happy to schedule a meeting, have a look at your home and provide you with a fair, no-obligation offer. We can even do this virtually if it makes you more comfortable. It’s a big decision. There is no pressure or judgement at all. If you do decide to sell, we would be happy to help you whenever you are ready.
