How do you figure out an offer price to buy my property?
We use four simple criteria to make our cash offers
After Repair Value “ARV” of Your Property
ARV is what we consider the actual value of your house or property after it’s been renovated or fixed up. ARV is calculated by looking at comparable sales in your area that have sold fully renovated.
The Renovation Cost (Cost of Repairs We Will Make)
Once we buy a house, we will likely have to make repairs and upgrades to boost its market value as well as bring it up to code. These kinds of upgrades include repainting the house, replacing bathroom tile, adding a back porch, and redoing the landscaping, just to name a few.
Our Selling Costs
Once the property is ready to be sold, we have the experience to know there are certain costs that are going to come up. It’s important that you know you will never have to pay any commissions or fees when you sell your house to us. However, we will likely end up paying certain costs, such as taxes, insurance, and HOA fees. So we consider those costs when we are making our offer.
Our Minimum Profit
We are a business and we buy houses to support our employees and families, so we do have to consider potential profits whenever we purchase a house for cash. We do want to be clear that we try our best to keep our profit to a minimum because our goal is to pay you as much as we can for your house.
Our Cash Offer = After Repair Value (ARV) – (Renovation Costs + Our Selling Costs + Our Minimum Profit)
For Example – So, let’s say the After Repair Value (ARV) of your property is $300,000 after we’ve renovated it. We end up paying for $50,000 in repairs so the house can be market-ready. We would then calculate our cash offer to you as $300,000 – ($50,000 in repairs + $30,000 in selling costs + $30,000 minimum profit), which means our cash offer would be $190,000.
And that’s it! Now you know how we come up with our cash offers! We want to make sure you know our goal is to make you the best offer possible while we do our best to take care of our team. Whatever housing situation you’re in, we promise we can make you the best offer possible for you and your family. There’s a very good reason most sellers who work with us choose to over working with a real estate agent. Our simple process and quality cash offer are too easy and simple to pass up. Don’t take our word for it, check out our reviews and testimonials to see what people like you have to say about working with us.
I’ve accepted your offer, now what? How long until we close?
Any of the “companies that buy houses” would say that the closing process takes roughly 2-4 weeks, depending on your specific situation. It should be noted that this assumes you want to close immediately. You always have the option to move slower and wait if you’d like to. Whenever you want to close on your house, we can help you figure out the best day that makes sense for your situation. Now let’s take a closer look at the entire closing process as it usually happens.
Open Escrow & Order Inspections
When you accept our offer to buy your house for cash, the first thing we’ll do is send the purchase agreement and other required paperwork to our local title company. Next, we will deposit the earnest money. Then, one of our team members will touch base to provide you with everything you need to know. They’ll also let you know if the title company needs any further information. Once they’re ready, the title company will order a title and lien search. Simultaneously, we will schedule an inspection, which can be done in person or virtually.
Timeframe: 24-72 Hours
Conduct Inspections & Address Any Title Or Lean Concerns
When the inspection is done, we’ll know what kind of repairs and renovations will be needed on our end. We may need to visit the property in person if we haven’t already, but we will be sure to respect your personal space during the COVID-19 pandemic, following all guidelines, wearing face coverings, and remaining socially distant as needed during in-person visits. If the title company discovers any title or lien issues, they’ll ask for additional information so that they fix the problems. Once that’s done, the title will be clear and the sale can move forward.
Timeframe: 1-2 Weeks
Scheduling The Closing & Getting You Paid!
Once those steps are completed, we will schedule the closing and pay you cash! We can close at the title company or they can send a mobile notary to you at a specific date. It’s entirely up to you! Once all the documents are signed, we can either wire money to your bank account or cut you a check from the title company. Again, it’s your call how you want to be paid. This usually happens the same day that you sign the final sale documents, but it’s possible that it can take up to one business day in rare instances.
Timeframe: 1-7 days
Why should I sell to you vs list with a realtor?
We understand why using a Realtor or real estate agent to sell your house feels like the best option. And if we get the sense that listing your house with a real estate agent would make for a better outcome for you, we will be honest and let you know. Ultimately, we want to make sure you get what you need from selling your house. So let us highlight some benefits and concerns that come with listing through a Realtor compared to when you sell your house for cash to us.
