If you’re considering selling your home, you likely have many questions. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of the most common questions we receive from our clients. If you don’t see your question on this list, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’d be happy to answer it for you and add it to our list.
1. Who are you?
My name is Konti Leci, and I am the Founder and Owner of ALKO Home Buyers. We work with a dedicated and high-quality team. Our “About Us” page will give you a detailed overview of who we are. Feel free to visit that page now to get to know us better. We are committed to presenting the best version of ourselves to all of our clients and to providing complete transparency about our values and how we represent this company.
2. What do you do?
We buy houses in Jacksonville in any condition and in any neighborhood. Usually, when people see “in any condition” they assume it is in any condition, no matter how bad it is. This is true, but we also mean “in any condition,” even when the property is in great shape. While we believe that when the property is in pristine condition, the best solution is to hire a realtor and list it in the MLS, there are always unique circumstances where the realtor route won’t work. We can provide you with some creative solutions that might work better in your situation.
We also offer an easy solution for homeowners who have a common problem (selling their home fast for cash without having to clean it up). If time is of the essence and you don’t want to deal with the hassle of home showings, repairs, and paying agents’ fees and commissions, we believe we are the perfect company for you.
If you’re unsure about selling your property, find out now if our offer is right for you. Simply fill out the form below so we can fully review your property and provide you with our highest cash offer.
3. How does it work?
This is one of our most commonly asked questions, and it’s definitely an important one. Our process is simple and involves only three key steps:
- You send us information on the property you’d like to sell.
- We review it, meet you at the property, and make you a cash offer, a creative offer, or even list it for you on MLS with much more competitive prices than other realtors.
- We agree on the price and get you your cash on the day of your choosing. (if it’s a cash offer)

4. Will you be listing my house on the MLS or actually buying it?
We BUY houses. We are the ones who will be meeting with you to purchase your property. We don’t work with realtors or agents, so we won’t be listing your property on the MLS. This way, you can get your home sold fast! Since I happen to be a realtor, we will only list it on MLS if we agree beforehand if that’s the route you want to go.
5. How do you determine the price to offer on my house?
Our prices are always based on the after-repair market value of your home. There are many factors that go into the offer we make, such as the location, size of the home, the home’s current condition, and the price of comparable homes in your area. Since we usually have to make some repairs to the property, these costs must always be accounted for when we calculate the price we can offer. We guarantee that you will receive our highest and best offer in relation to the price your home will bring after we fully renovate it.
6. Are there any fees or commissions to work with you?
There are no fees or commissions to pay when working with us. We offer a free, no-obligation service by presenting you with a solid cash offer for your home as-is.
7. How are you different from a real estate agent?
The main difference between us and a real estate agent is that we BUY houses, while agents only LIST them. We are your direct buyers and the people you will meet when we pay cash for your home. Real estate agents aren’t buying your property; they’re simply listing it on the market in the HOPE of finding a buyer (while also charging you a commission!)
8. Is there any obligation when I submit my information?
Absolutely not. We collect your property information simply to allow us to review the home and get an idea of its current state/condition, so we can reply to you with our highest and best cash offer for your home. It’s entirely up to you to decide if you’d like to accept our offer. Our services are always FREE.
9. What’s the difference between you and other companies online?
While we can’t speak for how other companies operate, we can assure you that you and your home will be in good hands when you work with us. We promise to provide the most transparent, stress-free home-selling experience that we can offer. Our mission is to make the process as smooth and straightforward as possible for our clients.
10. How quickly can I sell my house to you?
The speed at which you can sell your house to us will depend on various factors, including the condition of your house, the location, and market demand. Some of our clients are able to close on a sale within a few days, while others may take longer. If you need to sell your house quickly, we’ll do our best to work with you to get the job done as efficiently as possible.
11. Will you buy my house in its current condition?
We are willing to purchase houses in any condition, including houses that are in need of significant repairs or renovations. However, the offer price may be lower for a house that requires more work.
12. How much will you offer for my house?
The amount we will offer for your house will depend on a variety of factors, including the condition of the house, the location, and the current market demand. We will conduct a property assessment to determine the value of your house and make an offer based on that assessment.
13. Are you reputable and trustworthy?
We believe that we are a reputable and trustworthy company. We have a good track record and positive reviews from past clients and we are BBB accredited. However, it’s always a good idea to do your research and carefully evaluate any company you are considering working with.
14. Can I sell my house to you if I have a mortgage on it?
Yes, you can sell your house to us even if you have a mortgage on it. If we buy it for cash, the mortgage would have to be paid off on the day of the closing, however, there are creative ways to avoid paying off the mortgage. Contact us for details on how we can do that.
15. What are the benefits of selling my house to you?
Some benefits of selling your house to us include the ability to sell your house quickly and without the need to make repairs or renovations, the ability to avoid the hassle of listing and showing your house to potential buyers, and the potential to sell your house for cash. Also, most people who call you, presenting themselves as cash buyers, are nothing but wholesalers. All they want to do is to get the property under contract and try to sell it to direct buyers like me. If they can’t find one, they will back out of the deal.
16. Are there any potential drawbacks to selling my house to you?
Potential drawbacks to selling your house to us include the possibility of receiving a lower offer price than you would if you were to list the house on the market and the potential for some companies to engage in unethical or predatory practices. However, we provide all the options out there for selling a house. We listen to you, evaluate your situation, and provide you with the best option that would work for you.
17. How do I know if selling my house to you is the right decision for me?
Whether or not selling your house to us is the right decision for you will depend on your individual circumstances and goals. Consider these factors, such as the condition of your house, your financial situation, and your time constraints, when deciding if selling to us is the best option for you. But as I mentioned above, if the cash offer is not the right offer, we have all the other options out there, which are pretty much all three: 1. Cash offer, 2. Realtor, 3. Creative financing. We provide all of the above, depending on your situation.
