How?

I am Glad you asked!

Imagine…

Imagine you have a house (how about the house shown below) that you want to sell…

Sell My House In CT

Now, also imagine your neighbor, (as in the house right over your fence) has the exact identical house as yours, except for a few upgrades he made… say, he added granite countertops, removed wallpaper, applied a fresh coat of paint, put a new roof on, and put hardwood floors in.

Now Imagine he sold his house for $300K.

What Do We Know Now?

Well… ,

– we know, that If we make the same upgrades to your house (bringing your house to a very similar condition as your neighbour’s house), we would also be able to sell your house for $300K.

Correct?

Therefore,

We know the Market value of your house if we fixed it up (in this case $300K), and we know the cost of repairs/upgrades.

We can now make an offer that works for us. If this offer also works for you, great we close and you get your money at closing! As you can see, we make offers based on the market numbers, not based on how desperate you may or may not be to sell.


Sell Your House in CT: The Offer:

For those Math lovers you will appreciate this section. We value honesty and transparency. We have no issues sharing with you how exactly we formulate our offers.

[Your Offer] =  [After Repair Value] – [Cost Of Repairs] – [Our Selling Costs] – [Our Minimum Profit]

But in order for you to understand this we need to define some terms.

After Repair Value (ARV): This is what the market value of your house will be AFTER we buy and renovate the house. Yup we are just like your favorite HGTV flipping show.

Cost Of Repairs (COR): This is what our cost will be fixing/updating the house AFTER we purchase it from you.

Our Selling Costs: Although we buy houses without involving agents, we on the other hand, have to use an agent to sell that house again AFTER we have purchased it from you and fixed it up. So we have to pay agent fees, closing costs, taxes, holding costs etc. These are all the fees you do NOT have to pay, if you sell your house directly to us ;). This is usually 10% all together of selling price. (Our Selling Cost = 10% x ARV)

Our Minimum Profit: Yeah, this IS a business after all, and we wouldn’t be able to stay in business, buy more houses, pay contractors, plumbers etc, if we didn’t make some sort of profit. However, we keep this to an absolute minimum so we can present you with the highest possible offer. See, our business model is structured around making many deals with a little profit per deal, and not a few deals with a huge profit per deal. This benefits all.


English Please!!

So what does this formula mean in English? 

Simply this:

The market value of the house (after we fix it up), minus ALL our costs fixing it up (including our profits), will be the offer. How simple is THAT! Congrats, now you are an expert at this! But want to be sure you understand it?

In order for us to also be able to sell your house (well, our house after we buy it from you) for $300K, we need to bring your house to the same condition as the house of your neighbor, or better, so that we can also sell it for $300K!

Why?

Because we will not be able to sell the house in this current state for $300K when all the other houses that are currently for sale in your area look as gorgeous as your neighbor’s. Would you as a buyer be interested in buying a house in lesser condition for $300K when a much nicer house sells for the same price? No, of course not!

OK, if the house after it is completely fixed and updated would sell for $300K, how much would it sell for, as is? Let’s say you contacted an agent and she/he says, that your house as is, in its current condition is worth $190K.

Now you have contacted the most awesome, friendly, amazing, highest ranking house buyers in all of Connecticut… (us.. duhhh)! If you have not,… well, shame on you, you really should!

We would come in, with our contractor. We bring our contractor and our agent to the walkthrough, so that our agent tells our contractor what needs to be fixed (as he/she knows what buyers are currently looking for) and what does not need to be fixed (to save on the cost of repairs). Then our contractor gives us an accurate COR (Cost Of Repairs). The more accurate these numbers the more accurate (and the higher) our offer will be!

Our agent tells us, that we need a new roof, because the neighbor across the fence that sold his house for $300K, also just did a new roof, as well as hardwood floors, removing wallpaper, installing new appliances etc. Let’s say our contractor  gives us a cost of repairs of $70K

Now we are ready to make you an offer! Here are the numbers:

As-Is Value = $190K

ARV (After Repair Value) = $300K

COR (Cost Of Repairs) = $70K

Our Selling Cost = 10% x $300K = $30K 

Let’s say Our Minimum Profit For This Purchase = $40K

[Your Offer] =  [After Repair Value] – [Cost Of Repairs] – [Our Selling Costs] – [Our Minimum Profit]

Your Offer = $300K – $70K – $30K – $40K = $160K

Your Offer = $160K

Analyzing The Offer

So, the house is worth $190K as is,  meaning if you listed it with an agent you could sell it for $190K. Yet after 6% agent fees and closing costs you would probably get about $174K for it, after it will be on the market for 4? 5? months! And no one can guarantee the house will actually sell.

So now you have to make a decision.

Sell it for a guaranteed sale for $160K in as little as 10-20 days, or a “maybe sale” for $174K hopefully within 4 to 5 months.

~Decisions, decisions..


BUT WAIT!!!

What If The Cost Of Repairs Was $30K Instead Of $70K?

Now things get interesting! Now the offer becomes:

As-Is Value = $190K

ARV (After Repair Value) = $300K

COR (Cost Of Repairs) = $30K

Our Selling Cost = 10% x $300K = $30K 

Let’s say Our Minimum Profit For This Purchase = $40K

[Your Offer] =  [After Repair Value] – [Cost Of Repairs] – [Our Selling Costs] – [Our Minimum Profit]

Your Offer = $300K – $30K -$30K – $40K = $200K

Yup! That is $10,000.00 MORE than what the house is currently worth, and almost $30K more than what you would get if you had listed it with an agent (remember that you would only get $174K after all listing and agent fees).  Again, our offers are based on the numbers, not on how desperate you are to sell.

Why Our Offers Are Better.

Yes we know, we know. Everyone says this. But we will do better. We will show you why this is true, or at least we try to make this true!

See, the reason our offers are so fantastic, is because our offers are based on the value of your house as if it were completely fixed up and updated. Yes we figure out how much your house would be worth if it was completely updated.  Then we factor in the cost it would take to fix or update your home.

Secondly,

You see, here is where the cost of repairs comes in. If we can keep the cost of repairs down, we can obviously give you more cash for your CT house, as previously explained using our equation above.

So,… we try to do as much work ourselves so that we do not have to pay expensive contractors to do everything. Well, isn’t that nice of us!

Obviously we can not always do this as we buy sooooooo many houses at a time, but we can genuinely try to keep contractor numbers as low as possible so we can get you the highest number for your house in cash here in Connecticut.

Why do we go out of our way to give you the highest possible offer?

Well, think about it! If we can give you more than our competitors can, you will sell to us. And that is what we want. The more houses the faster we can help others with our mission.
