12. How many houses do you buy?
We have the capacity to purchase multiple houses, which allows us to extend the most favorable offers to our clients. Our business model focuses on smaller profit margins, given our volume of transactions with numerous clients. This approach is mutually beneficial, enabling us to assist more individuals and communities. If we are unable to buy your house directly, we can connect you with one of our investment partners, who are professionals in the house-flipping industry. We also engage reputable local attorneys during the closing process to ensure a seamless and expedient selling experience.
13. How is the price you pay for my house determined?
The price we offer for your house is determined through a comprehensive assessment. Initially, we evaluate the after-repair value (ARV), which represents the potential market value of your house after we complete the necessary renovations and repairs. Our specialists visit your property to calculate the anticipated repair and refurbishment costs.
We also consider selling costs, including agent fees, holding costs, closing expenses, taxes, and commission. These typically amount to approximately 10% of the ARV.
To calculate the fair price we offer you, we subtract the repair, refurbishment, and selling costs from the ARV. We then add in our minimum profit margin. The resulting figure is often comparable to what you would receive through traditional house sale methods, minus the additional out-of-pocket expenses associated with using a real estate agent. However, with us, you receive the funds in cash much faster, without the typical complexities and delays associated with agent-based listings. Traditional sales can sometimes take months to secure a legitimate buyer, whereas we provide a faster, hassle-free solution.
