Which Way Helps You Reach Your Goal?
When you work the numbers you start to see the real benefits that each way of selling your MA house offers. Here at Winter Hill Homes, we won’t be able to offer you full retail value for your house… but we offer other benefits that the traditional house sale can’t offer.
We Work On Your Timeline
Selling your house quickly has a lot of benefits to you financially. You can get rid of the headache of that property fast and avoid paying any more utility payments, tax payments, insurance payments, mortgage payments, etc. If you list your house with a Realtor, you might end up waiting months to close, and the costs add up. When you work with Winter Hill Homes, we can close on YOUR timeline! If you need some time to move out or relocate tenants, we will accommodate whatever schedule you need.
You Don’t Have To Make Repairs Or Clean
We don’t care how dirty your house is (we’ve seen worse!) or how many repairs are needed (a complete fixer? great! we love projects)... we’d like to make an offer on your house. In fact, Founder Josu’e Velney is a licensed contractor and transforms the houses we buy into safe, updated housing for the community. We buy all of our houses in “as-is” condition to alleviate some of the stress for our clients.
Don’t Pay Commissions
Because we are a full-service professional home buyer here in MA, we make it easy for you. We pay for all of the closing costs. What we offer you is what you get (of course minus any mortgage payoff or other encumbrances on the property). Since we are buyers and not Realtors…we don’t require you to pay agent commissions which can save you thousands of dollars!
When you add up the time you could save by working with Winter Hill Homes, the no-hassle experience and the money you’ll save on commissions, fees, and holding costs, for many homeowners like you, selling to a professional house buyer is the best viable option.

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similarly, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.
Here at Winter Hill Homes, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
