How We Calculate your Cash Offer
“So how much am I going to get for my house?” This is usually what everyone is most eager to know. For good reason, you want to get a fair price! So let’s break down how it works when we calculate how much we can pay for your house.
things first: we use a simple formula. There are 4 different parts of the formula and we’ll cover what each part means and how we calculate them, but let’s first take a look at the overall formula
The formula we use to make your offer:
What Does This Mean?
The After Repair Value (“ARV”), is the price we think we can sell the house for after it’s all fixed up. To find this number, we look at recent sales for similar homes in your neighborhood. Since we are Realtors we have valuable information that is not available to all investors that use public sites like Zillow or Redfin to determine the value which is just an estimate. We have access to several other variables of information to make you a higher offer than other investors.
Next is the cost of rehabbing the property (“Repairs”). This is what we estimate it would cost for us to fix it up. We like to do quick, in-and-out rehabs that keep our costs low instead of elaborate jobs – which is how we can pay more than the competition
After that, we take into consideration the transaction costs (“Trans. Cost”). If we’re going to resell the house, we need to make sure we give ourselves room for the commissions, closing costs, and holding fees to come- which is usually about 10% of the ARV.
Lastly, we determine our minimum profit (“Min. Profit”). Real estate is how we support and provide for our family and if we aren’t profitable, we wouldn’t get to stay in business so this is something we must factor in. Our minimum profit is dependent on the purchase price of the home. The higher we pay for a home, the more profit we need to make to offset the risks.
Lets Put This all Together
So we start with what we can potentially resell the house for (“ARV”), then deduct all of the repair costs, deduct the transaction costs and minus our profit… what is left is our maximum allowable offer – what we offer you for your house!
Should I Sell My House In California For Cash?
Should I List It As Is?
Let’s say you contacted an agent and she/he says, that your house as-is, in its current condition is worth $185K. Now you have contacted the most awesome, friendly, amazing house buyers in all of California… (us of course)! If you have not,… you really should!
We would come in, with our contractor if we could. (We bring our contractor walkthrough so that he can tell us what needs to be fixed (in order for the house to pass health and safety protocols for financing when we sell or not) and what does not need to be fixed (to save on the cost of repairs). With our contractor walking the property with us, he will provide us with a repair estimate so that we can make a strong offer for you and net you more money in the end compared to other investors.
Since we are Realtors:
We know what upgrades are needed such as granite countertops, flooring, windows, etc because the neighbor across the street that sold his house for $X amount, also has granite, as well as hardwood floors, removing wallpaper, installing new appliances, etc.
Gives us an accurate COR (Cost Of Repairs). See, we know exactly what we will do to the house the second we are done with the walk-through and we have already completed the flip in our imagination and we know exactly what all the numbers will look like.
The more accurate these numbers the more accurate
(and the higher) your offer will be!
As you can see, we play by the numbers. We do not make offers based on how desperate you may or may not be. We don’t base offers on some percentage of the After Repaired Value. We simply add the numbers up trying our best to give you the highest possible offer we can make you, to make sure you will be happy, and thus to make sure the contract will be signed so that we can get our next flip going! Makes sense doesn’t it!

“They’re truly a pleasure to work with!”
“They’ve helped multiple family members. In one case they took quick action due to the home being vacant and used as a drug house. They closed escrow in 10 days even though there was fire damage. In another case they closed quickly and then allowed my family member who lived out of state some time after the closing to remove some sentimental family pieces. They’re truly a pleasure to work with!”
– Shelley M. (Bakersfield CA)
