Real estate agents in Charlotte list properties with the hope of finding a buyer, often taking 6-12 months and charging a commission of 3-6% of the sale price. They provide a valuable service for those who can afford to wait and pay commission fees. Carolinas Properties’s approach, however, is distinct: We are home buyers, not agents. We actually purchase houses in Charlotte, often making a decision within a couple of days (or even the same day). We invest our own money to buy, repair, and market the houses, assuming the risk and responsibility for the property.
