Absolutely. Some of our best acquisitions have come from Real Estate Agents who decided to refer us their listing (off-market) as a pocket listings. We pay agents who send us leads the full 6% commission as opposed to just 3% you would get if you were sending it to another agent.

No. We don't require any up-front fees, any fees at closing, etc. We buy your property as-is so no need to worry about spending money on repairs and our inspections are all paid for by us - not you. In the United States, when a seller sells a property the only legal obligation you have to pay are your transfer taxes and any liens if there are any - which are all covered in the cash offer we make to you.
WHEN DID OFFERVEST LAUNCH?
We were originally founded in Atlanta, Georgia in the year 2014, operating under the name Atlanta Cash Offers, LLC. During that period, we successfully bought & closed on numerous properties in the Atlanta Market (valued well over $3M worth) and been responsible for helping many property owners sell their properties fast and responsible for many real estate investors being able to build their investment portfolios. We had always had national aspirations to be able to buy real estate throughout the country, so we decided to accomplish this feat that we needed time to rebrand to a name and platform that would be more nationally relatable - thus OFFERVEST was born. We were founded by Victor E. Bomi, BBA Finance and co-founded by Godwin E. Bomi, BBA Psychology. Our areas of specialty have always been the buying and selling of Single Family - Residential Homes, Land Lots, and Multi-Family Properties. Now we are ready to increase our footprint in our current market of Atlanta, Georgia as well as our newly entered market of the state of California and help a lot of property owners who need to sell their real estate quickly.
WHAT IS OFFERVEST's INSTANT CASH OFFER?
OFFERVEST's Instant Cash Offer - is our formal offer via a purchase and sale contract to the you the seller - which will include all of our general terms & our cash offer. We will usually make this offer within 24 hours of talking to you or at the appointment where we meet with you. You will get your cash at closing via the real estate attorney or title company that handles the transaction - in the form of a check or bank wire - whichever your preference is.
HOW IS THE OFFERVEST INSTANT CASH OFFER DETERMINED?
Our cash offers are determined by our underwriting team, our minimum yield requirements, and a full assessment of the current market, your property's condition - the repairs needed, the upgrades already made, and what homes that are in the same or similar condition as yours in the area have sold for in the last 60-90 days. You deal with our lead managers and licensed acquisition associates throughout the process to guide you through our offer process.
IS THE OFFERVEST OFFER NEGOTIABLE?
We make our offers to be as competitive as possible and on average pay 10% more than most cash investors. We try not to get into the back and forth, and make our first offer our best and most fair offer - so we can focus on actually beginning our due diligence process and getting your property closed. If for any reason you feel the offer is not high enough - we are open to hearing the price you have in mind to sell for and will take it into consideration - however most times - we make the offer that gives us 100% confidence that we will get the deal done, in the time we agree on with you, while still leaving some room for us on the back end to make our profit. Most sellers typically are interested in doing business with us and willing to forego a retail sale price and sell to us for a fair discount in exchange for not having to deal with all the hassles of a traditional sale.
ARE YOU FLEXIBLE ON WHEN I MOVE OUT OF MY PROPERTY?
Yes, we set the closing date to be in line for when you can be fully moved out of the property. That way you get your cash, we get the keys at close and can begin our post closing renovation and clean-up process immediately. We typically will not close until you are fully moved out of the property, however in special circumstances which must be stipulated in the contract may allow 1 week after close for you to be moved out.
IS OFFERVEST SIMILAR TO ZILLOW, TRULIA, OR REALTOR.COM?
No. With OFFERVEST You have already found your buyer, with those companies you are still searching for a buyer, and generally will take you the traditional time consuming route of going through an agent and all the hassles that come along with that such as the commissions, closing costs, showings, stagings, etc. We work with sellers who would like to forego that process and sell to a direct cash buyer.
CAN I REFER SOMEONE TO OFFERVEST & GET PAID?
Absolutely! We have a great rewards program for people like you. We pay out on average of $500-$1000 for any referral that we successfully close on. Our rewards program is a great way to make some extra income on the side. Just visit - OFFERVEST.COM/REWARDS for more information.
HOW FAST CAN YOU CLOSE ON MY PROPERTY?
We can close as fast as you would like. All legal real estate transaction in the United States require a general title search which usually takes anywhere from 1-2 weeks. This is why we always state that we can close in 2 weeks or less, typically we like to give the attorneys and title company ample time to research the title for any unforseen circumstances and be sure we are buying the property free and clear of any liens. We are also flexible to close on your time frame if you need a little bit more time as well.
WHAT IS YOUR BUYING CRITERIA?
OFFERVEST is typically looking to buy (off-market) properties, that are not already listed with a real estate agent - directly from the owner of title. If you do have a commission agreement with an agent and would like to sell to us, be sure to let your agent know you found a buyer yourself and you will compensate them out of your proceeds. We buy Single Family, Land, and Multifamily properties. For Single Family, we are looking for 3/1s, or 2/2s with at least 1000 sqft. For land - If you have a survey already done - the faster the process will go. For Multi-family, we are looking for all types - Class A-C 2 Units - 100+ Units.
