Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
A: The first step to selling your house is getting a home value estimation from a local real estate company or agent. We are happy to provide this service free of charge. Simply fill out our Home Value Estimation Form and we'll reach out to you to find a good time to meet.
A: Yes, we are happy to provide this for all our clients.
A: A Home Value Estimation is a service that a real estate developer provides to assess the value of a property based on comparable properties in the area and overall condition. We provide this for free. An appraisal is provided by a third-party appraisal company and generally costs $500-$1,000.
A: We can close a sale--completed, cash in your bank account--in seven days, including weekends. Maybe even less time, depending on your availability to work with us. What's more, we can use our relocation services and connections to help you transition smoothly into your new life, if you need the assistance. Can't wait to get started? Reach out to us today and let us know what your story is.
A: No! If you are between the ages of 50 and 70, with grown children out of the house, looking at the prospect of retirement, then congratulations, you made it. There is no better time to get a return on your life’s investments than right now. Think hard about your wants and needs for the future--chances are the path to get there starts with the sale of your property, not your retirement party. Take the next step and see what your home is worth with our Free Home Evaluation.
A: Yes. At Direct Source Properties, we take care of our clients, and that includes relocation services. Do you want to sell your property, but you're not sure about where you would go or worried about the transition? We'll help you find a new place to call home.

A: Home sale values aren't really increasing, but that's okay, because they've literally never been higher (both Brooklyn and Queens set home sale value records in 2015). If you wait, you risk losing everything if the market crashes again. It's a sellers market, and that means it's time to sell.
A: If you are in an underwater mortgage, you should look into selling your home immediately. Do not wait for property values to increase or to potentially refinance your loan--take real action. If you don’t sell your house, the bank will take your home away. Give yourself a fresh start, a clean financial slate, and avoid defaulting. Talk to us now about what you can do.
A: You may be able to complete a short sale that will leave you in a much better financial situation than foreclosure. An offer from a pre-qualified cash buyer like Direct Source Properties may be the best solution to get you out from under the impending foreclosure. We may also be able to make an offer even if the Notice of Trustee Sale has already been filed. We've worked with a lot of good people that were affected by the recent economic recession, and we'd like to do right by you, too. Contact us today.
A: It's probably not worth it to complete any major repairs before you sell your home. Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx are all old boroughs, and that means we expect to see old homes. We're also a construction company, so we'd prefer to take your property with it's problems. We can repair them for less cost than you'd be able to, and we'll be saving you months and maybe years of hassle working with a contractor. Save yourself the trouble of guessing by getting your home value estimation today.
A: Anything over $5,000-$10,000 is definitely not worth the hassle and time for a home-owner that is going to sell anyway. Yes, your asking price will be slightly lower, but a $10,000 project will probably take a minimum of six months to complete from the time you decide to hire a contractor to the time you pay the final bill, and that's a six month window for the market to go belly up. Issues that might run up a bill of this size are boiler systems that need to be replaced, leaky roofs or pipes that have caused structural damage, and a cracked foundation that needs to be lifted and repaired.
A: If you inherited a house, it's yours, and the selling process begins the same way as it does with any other piece of property getting your free Home Value Estimation.
A: Almost definitely not. Based on current market rates and values, the average home in Brooklyn rents for just over $3000/mo., and sells for $700,000 (Queens is comparable). Based on those rates, it would take 19.7 years to generate as much money renting as a one-time sale--and that's not including upkeep and management fees. That's also imagining that the market holds steady and doesn't crash--which is essentially a given some time in the next twenty years. The moral of the story? Unless you're planning on being a full-time landlord and repairman for the next thirty years, it's a much better decision just to sell.
A: Divorce is tough, for everyone involved. Sometimes, the best case scenario is just for everything to be over. We have experience mediating difficult situations like this and our goal is always that the transaction moves as quickly, cleanly and amicably as possible. For more information on how we would treat your case, call us today: (516) 737-1600.
We were able to guide our client through the purchase of her home. While facing many difficulties the home itself became burdensome. As it was a vacant property that was broken into and damaged by squatters. Several companies came along and told her they could get her out of the situation, however they weren't able to do so. Due to prior failed attempts she was hesitant however moved forward with us to assist her. We went above and beyond to ensure she received the service she deserved. We are glad that she is now one of our many satisfied clients.
