There’s no easier way to sell your home! FlashHouse helps you to sell on your timeline without listings, showings, or uncertainties. Selling to FlashHouse means:
We’re not home-flippers. Home flippers buy at a low price often targeting distressed homes, update, then sell the homes for maximum price appreciation. We focus on homes that are in good condition and offer a fair price.
We are currently buying homes in the following metro areas:
Yes. Our maximum purchase price for homes in age-restricted communities is generally $300,000.
We don’t purchase homes that:
Are outside of our service areas
Are manufactured, pre-fabricated, or mobile

Are not vacant as of the decided home closing date (or Extended Stay). No leasebacks after closing are permitted.
Have a significant issues or damage to foundation or structure
Yes! You don’t need a real estate agent to sell your home to FlashHouse, but if you’re already working with an agent or your home is listed, we’ll work with your agent directly. Your agent should submit your request for an offer on your behalf or you can submit your home with your agent’s information and we’ll contact them directly.
Yes! Few homeowners are financially able to own two homes at one time so FlashHouse helps you time the purchase of your new home with the sale of your existing home to us. The transactions are scheduled back-to-back to reduce the stress that you might otherwise experience. You can speak with one of our Concierge Specialists to learn more.
Home improvements like renovations or updates to your home are an important factor in determining your home value and our purchase offer. It’s important you tell us about them in your offer request. Including photos of your improvements also help and can be sent via email to email@example.com. Please ensure that your home’s address is included in your email.
FlashHouse typically provides you with an offer within 24-hours after you submit your request.
Yes! Our offers are not computer-generated or based solely upon our powerful algorithm. Our team of real estate experts evaluates every property carefully and photos allow them to have a more complete understanding of your home’s condition, features and overall value.
Yes. Photos are typically optional but in some cases photos may be required. Some reasons we may require photos include the home’s age, lack of comparable properties, or because we feel that we can’t get an accurate idea of the value of your home without photos. If we determine that photos are required, you’ll receive an email from our team.
Yes. Home values fluctuate based on market activity, competition, and other factors. Our home offers expire three days from the date of the offer. However, FlashHouse is happy to provide you with an updated offer at any time, just reply to your initial FlashOffer email. Please be aware that the renewed offer price may be unchanged, higher or lower than your original offer. The offer depends on market conditions. In rare instances, we may conclude that we’re not able to renew an offer.
In short, we take on all the costs, risks, hassles, and headaches associated with selling a home and you no longer need to stress about any of it!
While it depends on the condition of the home, FlashHouse usually performs light home renovations to get it market-ready. Then we’ll post For Sale signs, promote and hold open houses, manage all listing paperwork, talk to real agents, negotiate with home buyers, work with the home appraiser, worry about buyer financing falling through, pay holding costs, utilities and association dues.
Yes! FlashHouse provides our customers with the convenience of signing documents electronically with one of the leading electronic signature providers, PandaDoc.
Your home is thoroughly evaluated by a team of real estate experts with particular knowledge of the housing market, combined with FlashHouse’s proprietary evaluation and predictive market analysis technologies. FlashHouse is then able to provide you with a data-driven and competitive home offer.
As with any home sale, sellers are responsible for certain home closing costs. Closing fees may include title insurance, escrow fees, HOA transfers fees, taxes, document transfers and other customary fees. They may differ based on the market and typically range from 1% to 3% of the purchase price. The FlashHouse team is always willing to help you work with the title company or attorney’s office handling the transaction to get an accurate estimate of your net proceeds.
Home values found on sites like Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com, and Redfin, are determined by each respective site’s computer-generated algorithms. The estimated values are limited by the data available to them through public records. They only consider the housing market’s history; not where it’s going.
While a FlashOffer is not intended to be an appraisal of any kind, it is an actionable offer based on thorough property analysis by our team of real estate experts. We take time to consider and evaluate your home’s unique features and conditions in the context of the market’s inventory and trajectory.
FlashHouse offers a fair market value purchase price for your home with no hidden costs or fees.
Home sellers who work with FlashHouse skip the costly preparations, open houses, showings, and often months of unpredictability that comes with the traditional process. Instead of listing your home on the market and waiting to find a buyer, FlashHouse purchases your home from you. You choose your close date to avoid expensive double-moves, double-mortgages and storage units.
FlashHouse makes signing your documents online easy using PandaDoc for electronic signature.

FlashHouse performs a final walk-through of the home after you’ve moved out. This home inspection is to confirm the status of the home’s condition and to ensure all personal property has been removed. For an on-time closing, it’s crucial that all personal belongings and trash are removed. The condition of the property must remain the same from the start of the contract through transfer to FlashHouse. This includes outdoors and amenities like landscaping and pool maintenance. If you had repairs completed by a licensed contractor, a FlashHouse representative will approve the repairs. The walk-through should take approximately 30 minutes. You’re not required to be present for the inspection.

No problem! We’ll assist you in selecting a day up to 60 days from your signed contract date.

If you need to close after the 60-day time frame, we may be able to extend on a case-by-case basis.
FlashHouse works with Ohio Real Title. The title company assures the validity of the title then releases title insurance for the home. They manage the escrow account and funds for the transaction, including the earnest money deposit from FlashHouse, payments to mortgage companies, HOA (Homeowners Association) dues and any other relevant funds.
Yes, you may stay in your home for a maximum of three days beyond closing. This supports home sellers to avoid the pressure of closing and moving on the same day.

Details apply, there is no additional fee.
The title company or attorney's office managing the home transaction will distribute the final mortgage payoff amount to your lender. The remaining funds (minus closing costs) will then be wired to your bank account.
All personal belongings and trash must be removed at least 24 hours before closing. It’s required that the condition of the property is consistent at the start of the contract through transfer to FlashHouse. This includes landscaping and pool maintenance. FlashHouse must verify the condition of the property before closing. If any personal belongings and/or trash remain or the home’s condition isn’t consistent with when it went under contract, your closing may be delayed.
