Frequently Asked Questions
At this point, you’ve read through United Equity’s website but might still have questions. That’s great! Most people do. Here’s a collection of some of the most frequently asked questions people have and our responses. Still not sure? Don’t hesitate to contact us (or give us a call) and we’ll be happy to speak with you today.
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
A: Great question! The owners of United Equity, Ryan and Daniel, are professional home buyers, not agents. We do not list houses, we buy houses in Lincoln that meet our purchasing criteria. Once we’ve purchased a house, we might repair it and resell it to another homeowner or keep it as a rental ourselves.
Q: Do you pay fair prices for properties?
A: To make a profit when we resell a house, we purchase unwanted homes below the market value. We are looking to get a fair discount on a property. But, in our experience, most sellers aren’t expecting a large “windfall” on an unwanted property. Most appreciate that United Equity can offer cash, in-hand, and a quick closing process. With no extra time, effort, or expense required on your part to fix up the property or deal with the hassle of paying an agent’s fees, you can see the value in getting your house sold fast. Give United Equity a call and let’s see if we can come to a win-win price for both parties. Our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you don’t have to move forward with the offer we give… but it might be smart to find out what we’re offering!

Q: How does United Equity determine the price to offer on my house?
A: Our process is straightforward: we look at the location of the property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the property, and values of comparable houses sold in the area recently. Some areas have taken a massive downtown in the last 5 years, and the market in these places still hasn’t seen prices come back up. We take all of this information into consideration to arrive at a fair price that works for us and works for you, too.
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: One of the reasons United Equity’s clients prefer selling through us versus the traditional method of selling a house? There are NO fees or commissions! We make you an offer and, if you accept, we buy your house. We even often pay for the closing costs. No hassle. No fees. Our money comes after we pay for any necessary repairs on the house and sell it for a profit. Once we buy the house from you, it’s us that takes the risk on whether we can sell it for a profit or not. You get to walk away without the burden of the property and its payments, and often with cash in your hand.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them. Agents show the properties to prospective buyers and then take a percentage of the sale price. That’s if they can find a buyer. The average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 6-12 months. Once a house is finally sold, the agent’s commission is 3-6% of the sale price of your house. That means if it’s a $100,000 house, you’ll pay between $3,000 – $6,000 in commissions to an agent. Agents provide a great service for those homeowners that can wait 6 to 12 months to sell, and who don’t mind giving up some of that sale price to pay the agent’s commission. But that’s where United Equity is different! We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. Our company buys houses, we don’t list them. Since we’re the one buying the house from you – and we pay in cash – we can buy your house within a couple of days, if not the same day. We make our living by taking the risk to buy the house with our own cash, cover the cost of repairs, and then market it ourselves to find a buyer (not easy in the current market).
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is absolutely zero obligation! Give United Equity a call and tell us about your property. We’ll do our research, maybe set up a call with you to find out a bit more, and make you an all-cash offer that’s fair for you and fair for us. Once we’ve made you an offer, it’s your decision whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us. We guarantee not to hassle or harass you. We let you decide what’s right for you.
