We Buy Ugly Houses is a nationally recognized, family-owned real estate investment franchise. Its members own and operate independently owned franchises in need of urgent repairs by owners who need to sell their properties faster than normally can be accomplished by a local real estate agent. We Buy Ugly Houses does not represent any one person or company, but rather, we are a group of individual home owners who share a love of homes and want to do what we can to help our fellow home owners. We believe in doing business the right way and working for the right customer. We do our research to find the best homes to invest in and then approach the appropriate realtors to help them find those same homes.
We Buy Ugly Houses is not affiliated with any Realtor organization; however, each of the franchisees is assigned an independent Realtor whose duties are to market and coordinate with their individual brokers, coordinate with We Buy Homes, and close the sale. The independent Realtor’s commission is split between We Buy Homes and the broker or brokerage firm. Each franchisee pays a fee to join, while the broker or brokerage firms are not responsible for paying anything to We Buy Homes or their individual franchisees.
In addition to the fees each franchisee pays, they also pay administrative fees and commission to We Buy Homes and their broker or firm. Some companies like Century 21, are non-profit membership organizations, which means that their administrative costs are passed on to the members. Other companies like, Century 21, are profit making organizations that enjoy high rates of commissions. Regardless of whether you are a member of a for-profit or non-profit organization, you still must pay your own administrative fees to We Buy Homes.
