Here’s a Little More About 4 Brothers Buy Houses

4 Brothers Buy Houses

We’ve been passionate about real estate since buying our first property at the bottom of the latest real estate cycle in 2009. As we gained experience living in one unit of that property and renting the other out, we saw what a great opportunity real estate could be to start a profitable business while also providing quality housing.

Since we didn’t have formal training or a background in real estate, we learned by reading lots of books, listening to lots of podcasts, and otherwise consuming as much information as possible. After a short time educating ourselves and meeting other local real estate investors, we made friends with local investors who helped us learn how to renovate properties and sell for a profit. After working in partnership with other investors for a couple of years, we went out on our own.

We love the real estate business and the opportunity to help sellers, sometimes in difficult situations, sell their properties quickly and easily.

For many people selling the traditional way, with a Realtor, is a good option. But some are willing to accept slightly less than they’d get with a Realtor in exchange for an easy sale. Some sellers want to avoid the hassle of getting their house ready for the market and having many buyers walk through their property. They’d rather deal with a private buyer who can buy their house the first time they meet with them.

We offer that alternative to sellers and look forward to doing it for many years.
