How We Calculate Our Cash Offers
We are more than happy that you are considering selling with us here at Connect Home Buyers! Getting a cash offer for your property only takes a few minutes and can be completed within 4 hours or less.
First, we need some information about your property, things like the condition and age of the roof, furnace, etc. After we learn more about your property, we run a “CMA” (comparative marketing analysis). We utilize the “MLS” (multiple marketing services).
This is the same method an agent/broker would use to get an appraisal on your property. Although we are not agents, we work closely with some of the market-leading agents in each major market to ensure we aren’t leaving any money on the table.
Once we know exactly how much your property would sell for we get our “After Repair Value” the price your property will sell for on the market after all repairs and a full renovation.
We take the ARV and multiply this by a percentage based on how hot the market and area your property is located. This can vary widely from 90% in markets like Charlotte NC, Tampa FL, Phoenix AZ, Dallas TX, Denver CO, Salt Lake City UT, etc to as low as 50% in depressed areas like Detroit MI.
Then we subtract the costs of repairs and renovation.
Lastly for us to keep the business running and afford to feed our families we need to make a profit
Full Case Study Example - With Real Numbers!
Full formula = ARV X (50% – 90%) – Repairs – Profit = Final Cash Offer
Here is an example property in a desirable area and market
ARV = $370,000
Repairs = $40,000
Multiplier = 90%
Profit = $20,000
$370,000 X .90 – $40,000 – $20,000 = $273,500
Final Cash Offer = $273,500
Wait they’re making a $20,000 profit from our property!? (After paying all our team members and costs of operating the business our take-home is much less than this)
So there you have it all our cards on the table and 100% transparency on how we come up with our cash offers. But how does this stack up against listing the same example property on the market? Lets take a look
Selling to us VS listing on market
Let’s say your agent tells you that you can sell your property for $370,000 on market, great! But wait that’s not what you keep.
The price you list your property for is not going to be your take-home pay you still have to factor in agent commissions, fees, closing costs, buyers’ concessions/repairs, staging costs, etc
And of course, we cannot put an exact number on the time and stress it will require you to make repairs, list the property, and additional months of holding costs. We do know however that when selling your property on the market you can expect about 10% in all fees and commissions after closing
- Both Agent’s Fees: 6%
- Closing Costs: 2-3%
- Buyer’s Concessions/Repairs: 1-5%
- Staging Costs: <1% (to get the highest price, you’ll want to stage your home)
So let’s stick with the same example property we used above and imagine that you are willing to make the $40,000 in repairs to get it market ready.
Listing With An Agent Full Cost Break Down
ARV = $370,000
Repairs = $40,000
Total Fees = 10% X $370,000 = $37,000 (This can be as high at 14%)
$370,000 – $40,000 – $37,000 = $293,000
Final Take-Home = $293,000 – This is your total take-home for listing the same property with an agent plus all the hassle and stress included ($19,500 difference from selling to us)
