Frequently Asked Questions
Maybe you still have a few questions about our process. That’s okay, most people do! Here is a list of our most frequently asked questions. However, if you still have questions, feel free to contact us by phone or email. We are happy to answer your questions!
Q: Will you be listing my house on the MLS (multiple listings service) or buying it?
A: Excellent question. We are not real estate agents, so we don’t list houses. We are professional homebuyers who buy houses in Eugene, Springfield, Salem and surrounding areas that meet our purchasing criteria. After we buy your house we may do repairs and resell it, or keep it as a rental property ourselves.
Q: Is your price offer fair?
A: Always! We purchase many of our houses below market value. We do this so we can resell it at a profit to a new homeowner. However, in our experience, most sellers aren’t expecting a large payout, but instead, appreciate that we can offer quick cash without the hassle and expense of fixing up your property and hiring an agent. There is never any waiting for financing when you use Cornerstone Properties; we are ready to buy right now! We can have cash in your hand in under 7 days in most cases!
If you are looking for a no-hassle experience and see the benefit of selling your house fast, we can give you a fair and honest offer for you property that benefits both you and us. Remember, there is no obligation or commitment, just a fair and honest offer.

Q: How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
A: We have a straightforward process at Cornerstone Properties. We look at the location of the property, what repairs will be needed, the current condition of the property, and the value of comparable houses recently sold in the area.
House values in certain areas of Oregon have lost value in recent years and most of those areas have not seen prices recover. We may take this into consideration when making you an offer. However, we are committed to giving you a fair price that works for both you and us.
Q: Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
A: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 with us! If your property meets our specifications we’ll make you an offer, and often we will even pay the closing costs. There is no obligation and there are no fees. We make our money by making repairs, if needed, and then selling your property for a profit.
No more worrying about if your home will sell. Once we buy your property, we take on all the risk of whether the house will sell for profit. That means the responsibility is on us, and all you have to do is walk away from a burdensome and time-consuming property with cash in hand. If you have a property in Eugene, Springfield, or Salem Oregon, give us a call for a quick review.
Q: How are you different from a real estate agent?
A: A real estate agent lists a house and hopes someone will buy it. This process takes time and money. The average amount of time it takes to sell a house in many markets right now is 6 to 12 months.
Additionally, an agent will charge you 3 to 6% of the sales price. For example, if your house is worth $100,000, you will pay between $3,000 and $6,000 in commission. Agents provide a great service for those who can afford this amount of time and money.
We are different. We buy houses; we don’t list them and hope they will sell. This allows us to pay you fast cash for your property. We can typically make a decision about your house within a few days—sometimes even the same day. We make our money by taking the risk that, after cleaning and repairs, your house will sell.
In this market, finding a willing buyer is the hardest part. We take care of that for you, and give you a fair, cash offer in return for your house.
Q: Is there any obligation when I submit my info?
A: There is zero obligation! Once you tell us a bit about your property, we’ll work quickly to make you a cash offer. We may need to set up a call with you to get additional information so we can make sure the property fits our specifications. However, there is never any obligation. We make you an offer that is fair to you and fair to us. From there, it is your decision to accept. We will never hassle or pressure you!
Q: What If The House Is In Really Bad Shape? Will You Still Buy It?
A: We buy houses in any condition or shape. You’d be amazed at some of the houses we’ve bought. Why do we do it? Most ugly houses simply need a little TLC in order to restore its beauty. We pay for any renovations or repairs after we buy your house, so you never have to worry about the state of your property.
