How We Calculate Our Best Cash Offer For Your House
Start with an ARV (After Repair Value) – Our offer price will be heavily based on what we think a property will be worth after completing repairs. The best way to do this is by looking at recent comparable sales in the same area. After determining a reasonable ARV the next step is to calculate repair costs.
Calculate repair costs – This will vary depending on the property’s condition. Think about things like “how old is the roof?”, “have I made upgrades to the kitchen or bathrooms?”, or “is all my piping and electrical fully functional?” As experienced investors, we keep our repair costs down by knowing where to spend and where to save. Additionally, our contractors charge us less since we constantly give them repeat business. In turn, we are able to make a more competitive offer on your house.
Want to run quick numbers yourself?
80% of ARV – minus repairs = offer price
Take 80% of (After Repair Value), then subtract repair costs. That will give you a rough estimate of where a cash offer might land
Of course, this simple equation is not a one size fits all approach to all our offers. But hopefully it will give you an idea.
Please keep in mind that we are a small investment group that buys homes with our own money with the intent to make a profit. It is a full time occupation that inherently comes with risk. However this does not mean that we make our money by making low-ball offers. We make our profit by cutting down on construction costs and understanding real estate market trends.

Questions You May Have When Selling Your House For Cash
“When should someone sell to a local cash buyer?“
When you need your property sold fast and hassle, then selling your house to a direct cash buyer is the best way to get it sold.
The sellers we typically purchase from have properties that need cosmetic or major repairs. Sometimes their property has become a headache, burden, or liability and they just want it sold without having to make any repairs. Whatever the case, the sellers that choose us are sellers that cannot afford to waste time. They are looking for a buyer who will give them a fair offer and follow through.
Remember…our offers are completely free. You have no obligation to accept.
“Can I sell my house without a Realtor/agent?”
You absolutely can. There is no rule or law stating that you have to list with a Realtor. They can be useful when selling your home the traditional way since they advertise your property to potential buyers. Of course this comes at a price; a total of 5-6% of your homes sales price is paid to the Realtors/agents involved in the sale of your property. Not to mention the 2-3 months a Realtor will need to properly market the home.
However when you sell without a Realtor, the entire process becomes much simpler and faster. It no longer becomes a process that is intimidating or overwhelming. When you sell to a cash buyer there is hardly any paperwork involved and you don’t pay a dime in closing costs.
“How do you determine a property’s value?”
The short answer is to look at recent comparable sales within your neighborhood and surrounding areas. But here some of the other major factors to consider when determining a value.
Property Location – You’ve probably heard the phrase “Location, location location”, that’s because there’s a lot of truth to it. For example, a house that sits mid-block on a quiet residential street would fetch a higher price than an identical house that backs up to a busy street or freeway. Aside from comparable sales, location is the most important factor that affects your home’s value.
Property Type – There are many different property types in California. Most often, people think of the typical 1 unit SFR (Single Family Residence). Some of the other more common types are condos, townhomes, duplex’s, triplex’s and apartment buildings. Each property type is unique and comes with their own set of challenges and rewards. We buy all these types of properties and are familiar with their advantages and disadvantages.
Occupancy Status – Especially in the state of California, selling a house that’s vacant (or that will be vacant) is much easier than selling a property that is occupied by a tenant. Prospective buyers generally do not want to deal with the previous owner’s tenant. Southern California (especially Los Angeles County) is not a landlord friendly area. It’s virtually always better to get your property vacant before selling.
Functionality – Have you ever heard someone say that a house didn’t “flow?” Or maybe you’ve seen a property where the lot size was very large but most of it was unusable since it was on a hillside. Sometimes a house just doesn’t have a desirable layout and needs to be reconfigured by removing or adding walls. These are all examples of properties that lack functionality. In technical terms we say they have a functional obsolescence. Buyers tend to pay less or completely avoid properties that have functional obsolescence(s).
From Contract the Closing:
The In’s and Out’s Of The Closing Process
Great! So you liked our offer and decided to accept. We now have an executed contract. The first order of business is to forward the contract along with our earnest money deposit (EMD) to an escrow company.
After we have an accepted contract, it’s time for us to do a more thorough inspection of the house. There can be a lot going on behind the scenes that we need to account for. Think sewer lines, plumbing, electrical, etc.
Closings can happen in as little as 7 days. We are always ready with funds available to close. After closing, your proceeds will be disbursed to you through check or wire in no more than 2-3 business days after closing.
