Great question and we’re an open book: Our process is very straightforward. We look at the location of the property, what repairs are needed, the current condition of the property, and the values of comparable houses sold in the area recently. As you know, house values have taken a huge hit in the last 5 years and most areas still haven’t seen prices come back up. We take many pieces of information into consideration—and come up with a fair price that works for us and works for you too

Great question. We’re not agents, and we don’t list houses. We are professional home buyers: We buy houses that meet our purchasing criteria. From there we may repair the house and resell it to another home owner or keep it as a rental ourselves.

Many of the houses we purchase are below market value (we do this so we can resell it at a profit to another homeowner). We are looking to get a fair discount on a property. However, in our experience, many sellers aren’t necessarily expecting a large “windfall” on the property but rather appreciate that we can offer cash, we close very quickly (no waiting for financing), and no time or effort or expense is required on your part to fix up the property or pay agent fees. If that’s what you’re looking for and you see the value in getting your house sold fast, let’s see if we can come to a fair, win-win price. (Besides, our no-obligation pricing commitment means that you do not have to move forward with the offer we give… but it’s good to know what we’re offering!)

There is absolutely zero obligation for you. Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll take a look at things, 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. From there, it’s your decision on whether or not you’d like to sell your house to us—and we won’t hassle you, won’t harass you; it’s 100% your decision, and we’ll let you decide what’s right for you.

This is what makes us stand out from the traditional method of selling your house: There are NO fees or commissions when you sell your house to us. We’ll make you an offer, and if it’s a fit then we’ll buy your house;  We’ll often pay for the closing costs too! No hassle, No fees. We make our money after we pay for repairs on the house (if any) and try to sell it for a profit. (Basically, we’re taking on any risk for whether we can sell it for a profit or not. Once we buy the house from you, the responsibility is ours—but you walk away without the burden of the property and its payments, and often with cash in your hand!)

Real estate agents list properties and hope that someone will buy them. The agent shows the properties to prospective buyers, if there are any. (The average time to sell a property in many markets right now is 6–12 months.) Then they’ll take a percentage of the sale price if they find a buyer. Oftentimes, the agent’s commission is 3–6% of the sale price of your house (so 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 that can wait 6–12 months to sell and who don’t mind giving up some of that sale price to pay for the commissions. But that’s where we’re different: We’re not agents, we’re home buyers. Our company actually buys houses. We don’t list houses.

Since we’re actually the one buying the house from you, and we pay with all cash, we can make a decision to buy your house within a couple days (sometimes the same day). Again, we make our living by taking the risk to buy the house with our own cash, repair the house, and market it ourselves to find a buyer—which is the hard part in this market.

    What Our Customers Say

    Kristine 66 Center ave Keansburg
    My home in Keansburg was devastated by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. I could no longer inhabit this home and needed to sell it. Mr. Hughes kindly purchased my home and I could not have been happier. My home needed to be lifted due to the storm and they were able to elevate the entire home by 15 feet. I thought no one would want to purchase my home but Mr. Hughes came along bought it. Thank you for your kindness.

    Emma Dupree & Jo Ann Wilkins 552 E Milton ave Rahway
    I am writing this testimonial to inform you of the kindness and generosity extended to myself and my mother, Emma Dupree, of Rahway. We were introduced to Mr. Hughes by my mother's next-door neighbor. After speaking with him he offered her assistance in disposing of the property.

    Talmadge Young & Debbie Young 1548 Totten st Rahway
    I am writing this testimonial letter of endorsement for Hughes Home Buyers to express satisfaction regarding the purchase of my in-law's house located in Rahway NJ. The house on Totten Street was ruined by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. The work that he put in to get the house back together is a miracle. I thought the city of Rahway would have condemned and demolished it and made us start all over.
