Discover How to Sell Your Home Fast: FAQ Guide

Browse the FAQs below to find out how to sell home fast with JWS Acquisitions.

Do you buy houses in any condition?

We buy houses in any condition and type of community (e.g. gated, age-restricted, etc.). From single-family homes, condos, and townhouses to duplexes, multi-family homes, and residential buildings, we buy all kinds of homes in Atlanta, Georgia and the surrounding metro area.

No matter the foundational or structural condition of your home, you can sell your house as-is to us. We don’t however buy homes that are manufactured, pre-fabricated, or mobile. You must also have clear ownership (no double escrow).

What is an all cash offer?

An all cash offer means that you’ll receive a competitive, data-driven cash offer in your pocket within 24 hours after we visit your property.

Your cash offer will be based on the condition, location, and age of your home as well as comparable properties, any improvements (or renovations) that need to be done, and local market factors.

Because of the dynamic nature of the market, the cash offer we present typically expires within four days from the date of the offer. If your offer does expire before you’re able to make a decision, we’re happy to provide you with a new cash offer. Our renewed offer price may be the same, higher, or lower than the original depending upon current market conditions.

Why sell my house to JWS ACQUISITIONS?

At JWS ACQUISITIONS, we pride ourselves on offering the easiest and most trustworthy way to sell your home fast for cash.

We’re a small team of Atlanta natives that have been working in the real estate industry for years and know the local market like the back of our hand. The small and local nature of our team allows us to be more agile, personal, and flexible than a large nationwide service.

We also value long-term relationship building over short-term profit. At JWS ACQUISITIONS, we understand the stress and financial concerns that oftentimes come with selling homes. That’s why we come to your property to meet with you and offer you the best price for your home. We do everything in our power to eliminate the costs, risks, and hassles that come with selling a home.

We also offer a cost-competitive alternative to listing your home on the traditional market or paying real estate agent commissions. Not only do we typically pay MORE than other house buyers, but we also don’t charge a service fee. This provides you with huge cost savings as most sellers will pay 6% in commissions to list their home with an agent. Competitive sites will also charge 6%-10% in service fees to sell your home to them in order to pay for the transaction fees associated with listing and marketing your home after they purchase it from you.

There are also no closing costs or extra fees when selling your home fast to us. And we give you the freedom to pick your closing date according to your timeline and housing needs. When working with JWS ACQUISITIONS, you are in control.

To ensure you keep the most cash in your pocket, we can help with your local moving costs with professional movers. And if you plan on moving into a new home, we’ll time the purchase of your new home with the sale of your existing home so you can keep more money in your pocket. We do so by ensuring the transactions happen back-to-back to minimize the stress and costs.

Plus, you can sell your home fast without an agent when working with us. But if you’re already working with an agent or your home is currently listed, not to worry. We’ll work with your agent directly to ensure you get the best deal on your home.

You also avoid disrupting your life with open houses, interrupted weekends, and showings to strangers when selling your home to JWS ACQUISITIONS. You don’t have to worry about finding the right agent, renovating your house to get it market-ready, installing for sale signs, completing listing paperwork, waiting for and negotiating with buyers, working with appraisers, buyer financing falling through, paying holding costs, utilities and association dues. We handle everything so that you can sell your house quickly and get the most cash ASAP.

How do you determine how much to offer for my house?

When inspecting your property, we carefully evaluate the condition, specifications, features, any repairs that are needed, and the overall value of your home and property depending upon current and predictive Atlanta real estate market dynamics. This information is then used to present you with a cash offer at a competitive market price.

Our team of experienced local realtors, licensed property inspectors, and specialized contractors use our local market expertise along with industry-standard evaluation software and predictive market analysis to provide you a fair, data-driven cash offer.

The location, age of home, comparable properties, any improvements (or renovations) to your home are just a few factors we consider to determine the value of your home and our purchase offer. Market activity and competition, among other external factors also impact home values.

The home values found on sites like Zillow, Trulia, Offerpad,, and Redfin are determined by the site’s individual proprietary evaluation technologies and computer-generated algorithms. The data available to them is predominately based on the history of the market and not on where it’s headed.

In comparison, we use a combination of past market data, predictive market analytics, and careful analysis by real estate specialists. This allows us to assess your home’s unique condition and assets in the context of local market inventory and future supply so you can sell your house quickly and safely.

Does JWS ACQUISITIONS charge any additional fees or commissions?

No, we do NOT charge any service fees, closing costs, or extra charges.

There is no cost to you for us to visit your house and present you with a cash offer. After you receive your free cash offer, it’s completely up to you to decide if you want to sell your house for cash or to go through the headache and expense of listing your house with a realtor.

When traditionally listing and selling homes on the market or working with an agent, you are typically responsible for certain closing costs. These costs may include things like title insurance, escrow fees, HOA transfers fees, taxes, and document transfers. The total costs of these fees can range from 1% to 3% of the purchase price, which is a huge chunk of your hard-earning dollars. At JWS ACQUISITIONS, we take care of these fees for you to make the entire process affordable and easy.

We also do not charge a service fee. When traditionally listing your home, you typically have to pay 6% in commissions to a real estate agent to have them help you. Competitive sites also tend to charge service fees between 6-10% to pay for the standard transaction fees when reselling your home. Such fees include the buyer’s agent commission (3%), concessions to buyer, holding costs, maintenance fees, and taxes.

Because we don’t charge additional fees or commissions, homeowners who are wondering how to sell a home fast in Atlanta, GA are realizing the cost benefits and transparency of our business model.

Do you need to see my house to make an offer?

Since we’re located locally, we typically coordinate a time to come to your property in Altanta to see your house. Seeing your house in person also gives us the opportunity to meet one another. Meeting in person is truly important to us as we value building relationships with our clients over securing short-term profit gains.

If you are unable to meet with us in person, we are open to scheduling a time for you to show us your property over video call. We also respect social distancing guidelines and want you to be as comfortable as possible. We want to make you a cash offer to help you sell your home fast AND safely.

Whether we schedule an in-person or virtual property visit and inspection, rest assured we’ll properly evaluate your property in a quick and respectful manner.

How soon can we close in order to sell my home fast?

The minimum timeframe to close in Georgia is 8 business days for homes without a homeowners association and 11 business days for homes in a homeowners association (HOA) community.

We’ll provide you with an offer within 24 hours of seeing your property. Once you accept your cash offer, we’ll schedule a closing date (also known as close of escrow) that works best for you. We work with you to determine your close date so you can close when you want.

We’ll then close at a nearby title company at a convenient time and handle all the paperwork for you. For proper title and closing, we carefully ensure the title, title insurance, escrow account, earnest money deposit, payoffs to mortgage companies, HOA dues and any other transaction funds are properly issued. Once the closing documents are signed, the sale is recorded on public record and the funds are distributed.

If you’re not worried about how to sell your home fast and want additional time to close on your house, we can accommodate a closing date up to 90 days after signing the purchase agreement. And if you need to adjust your closing date at any point in the selling process, we’ll do everything in our power to accommodate your request within the legal bounds of GA real estate laws.
