“I couldn’t recommend anyone more highly”

About Mike Buys Houses

Mike Buys Houses is owned by Otranto Real Estate Co.  We are a local home buying company in Wake, Pitt, Johnston, and Durham Counties.  We are cash buyers and do not use bank loans to buy our properties, which is why we are able to buy your house fast and on your terms.

We always buy houses as-is, and never ask our sellers to make repairs or pay any fees.  Since 2005, we have been working with homeowners that need to sell their house fast and easy. We are a local company and NOT a franchise. We live and work in North Carolina and are active members of our community.

We offer speed, execution, transparency, and a hassle-free sale.

If you have any questions about how we work don’t hesitate to contact us anytime! We’re an open book, and we love meeting our neighbors!

Our Company- Meet Mike Otranto


Mike and his “best friend” Ruby

Hi, I’m Mike Otranto and this is my assistant, Ruby the Beagle (she keeps up the morale around the office).  We want to thank you for visiting our website.  Real estate has been my passion since the mid-2000s.  I have always preferred to buy houses directly from owners and not deal with banks, auctions, or 3rd parties.  I believe in working locally with the people of my community.


How We Work With Homeowners

We’re very easy to work with and our process is very simple.  Once you contact us, we will call you right away to learn more about your situation, and about your home. The whole process can happen very quickly. We may be able to give you an all-cash offer in 24 hours after talking with you!

First and foremost we are cash buyers.  Our unique ability is the creative solutions that we can offer homeowners.  We sit down, one on one with the homeowner, and work out a solution that works for everyone.  This can be anything from closing and getting you cash in as little as 48 hours, or maybe some point in the future.  If you are having issues with your mortgage we can assist with that as well. We buy from people, not banks, or auctions.

Our conversations are always private, and will never be shared with any 3rd parties or nosy neighbors.

Here’s the truth, we don’t always buy every house that is shown to us. We do a little research before making a cash offer, but we can usually make an offer within one business day. How’s that for fast? If we can’t make you an offer, we will help you find the right solution for your situation.
