Pricing

1. Can GVH pay more than fair market value?

open-faq

Yes, with our Sell for More and Rent Today, Sell Tomorrow solutions. Check out our calculator to estimate your cash offer net proceeds.

2. How do you determine offers for my home?

open-faq

We consider the current state of the real estate market, the cost of repairs a traditional buyer is likely to request, and the sale price of homes recently sold in your neighborhood. View how we calculate offers.

3. What are the costs of selling to GVH?

open-faq

Simply stated, $0 – you don’t pay any commissions or transaction fees and we pay for closing costs and repairs. This means you don’t have to come up with cash out-of-pocket to sell your home.

4. Are GVH offers negotiable?

open-faq

If you feel we’ve missed something that affects your home’s offers – we want to know. Contact your personal closing assistant and we’ll be happy to re-evaluate your property. See how we calculate your offers.

5. How does selling to GVH compare to selling to companies like Opendoor?

open-faq

Values found on sites like Zillow, Trulia, and Redfin, are determined by computer-generated algorithms. Those values are limited because they look at the market’s history; not where it’s going. Our offers are based on transparent analysis by local experts who take time to evaluate what makes your home special. View more about how we compare.

Home Visit

6. Does GVH look at my home in-person or virtually?

open-faq

Either way, please let us know your preference. One of our acquisition specialists or a licensed GVH contractor will conduct your visit. After showing us your house, you’ll get your best offers, on-the-spot.

7. After looking at my house, what happens if it needs repairs?

open-faq

You’ll have the following options:

  • Provide a repair credit. Due to our volume and reduced profit margin, you still get about 5% more than what another homebuyer can offer. This means no money out of pocket, or work done by you.
  • Make the repairs yourself. You can hire a licensed contractor and pay out-of-pocket for all the necessary repairs before closing. We’ll provide you with a repair list which must be city-permitted and performed by licensed contractors.
  • Decline to provide a repair credit or make repairs. GVH may then cancel the contract with no penalty to either party. Keep in mind, repairs will most likely have to be performed regardless of who buys your house.

Accepting an Offer

8. How do I accept an offer?

open-faq

It’s super simple. You can: sign the purchase agreement in-person, electronically via DocuSign, or you can mail it to us. Once you and GVH sign, we are officially under contract.

9. What if I don’t know the date I would like to close?

open-faq

That’s ok, just take your best guess. Later, we’ll send an addendum to adjust the closing date based on what you need.
