Q: Why are the properties discounted so much on this site? Wouldn’t you just keep the best investment properties and rental properties for sale for yourself?
A: At Founder, we use a proprietary marketing system to get in touch with homeowners who are needing to sell their property fast. Often these homeowners are behind on their mortgage, inherited a property problem, or don’t have the funds to repair their distressed property to make it “market ready” and need a way out. That’s where we come in. We provide them with a fair cash offer for their TX house or rental and we can close faster than a traditional real estate agent. Because of this, they are able to walk away from a property that’s been stressing them out and we’re able to purchase a house to offer you at a steep discount – the investment properties listed through our site are discounted from 20 to 50%!
Q: How are the investment properties on this site different from those I can find on the MLS?
A: The MLS is the “Multiple Listing Service” which is where real estate agents list properties for sale. The houses and rental properties you’ll find on our Buyers List are ones that will never be on the MLS due to the distressed nature of the property or the homeowner’s unique situation. For many of these people, working with a traditional real estate agent to find a buyer is out of their reach either due to the cost of making a property “market-ready” or because the house is already in foreclosure and a real estate agent refuses to work with them. But at Founder, we are there to assist Houston homeowners stuck in any situation. We will either buy the house directly from them at a discount or help them connect to the right investor so they can sell that unwanted house fast and walk away.
Q: Can I use traditional bank financing to buy these investment properties?
A: Most of our work is with investors looking for investment properties or rental properties that are for sale now. They have cash in their hands and want a quick sale so that they can add the property to their portfolio and start getting passive income. However, if you are pre-approved with a bank and can close quickly, we will consider all offers.
If you need financing to buy a property you see on our site, contact us today. We can connect you with recommended and trusted lenders that we have worked with before.
Q: How do I make an offer on a property on your Buyers List?
A: We make buying a property simple! Reach out through our contact us page or give us a call at (877) TX-INVEST. We take offers first come, first serve, so the telephone may be the faster option. Once you connect with us about the property or rental in Houston that you want to purchase, we’ll require an earnest deposit to secure your offer on that property.

Q: How often do you add new investment properties in Houston to the site and Preferred Buyers List?
A: We are constantly sourcing new investment properties and, as new ones become available, we add them to the site weekly (if not daily!). Because our properties are first come, first serve, you will want to check back often. Investment properties are priced way below market value and tend to sell very quickly.
Q: Do you charge any fees to buy or sell a house, investment property, or rental?
A: You can rest assured knowing that we never charge homeowners any fees to help them find a solution to whatever difficult situation they might be facing that causes them to need to sell their house quickly and for cash. Plus, we pride ourselves on purchasing Houston properties at a win-win price.
As an investor, when you buy a property directly from Founder you are getting it at a steep discount due to the distressed nature of the house or rental. We add a property acquisition fee to the property, which is our only profit for finding and negotiating the deal. Not only have we been able to help out a homeowner in the community that needed a helping hand, but we are able to offer the property to you at a steep discount while making a tidy profit for ourselves. We consider this a win for all parties!
