“How Do You Determine a Cash Offer for My House?”

We base our cash offers on your home’s potential value after renovations

Curious about how much money we’d pay for your house? We figured as much! Below we provide a brief overview of our cash buying formula. Then we show you an example of a cash offer we recently made to a homeowner in the DMV.


Our Cash Offer Formula Broken Down

Your Cash Offer

= (After Repair Value) – (Our Buying Costs) – (Cost of Repairs) – (Our Selling Costs) – (Our Profit)

“What do all these parts of the cash offer calculation actually mean?”

(Click each tab below to find out)

The DMV Cash Home Offer Simplified

To put it simply, our cash offer will be the market value of your house after its fixed up, minus our profit and costs.

Once I discovered a roof leak after my tenants left the house trashed and full of junk, I was done! I filled in the form, accepted a cash offer, and closed about 2 weeks later. No more stress, just a happy ending! Thank you guys!

Example of a Ballpark Cash Offer with Actual Numbers

Want a quick “ballpark” offer? Our cash offer will most likely be between 40-70% of your home’s ARV (the value after renovations).

For example – Let’s say the house you need to sell needs some repairs but once it’s all fixed up, it will be worth $500K. In this case our cash offer might be $335K or around 67% of the ARV. Again, this is just a “ballpark” estimate for a house not needing expensive repair work.

Depending on the overall condition of the home and total cost of repairs needed, our cash offer on a house worth $500K after renovations would likely fall somewhere between $200K to $350K (or 40% – 70% of 500K).

Note

Not every DMV homeowner can sell quickly for cash. If you do NOT want or need to sell your house fast, we have other options to help get you more money when selling your home in Maryland, Washington D.C., or Virginia.

How We Determined a Cash Offer for this House

A cash offer broken down for a house in MD that was bought AS-IS and flipped

Let’s Say here’s…

The kitchen in the house you need to sell

maryland house bought as-is for cash before repairs

As you can see, the house needs repairs and updates to make it appealing to a new renter or homeowner. 

However, you just want to sell the house AS-IS, without cleaning or updating (maybe to pay off some debt or… finally move down to Florida 😉)!

And let’s say this is…

How buyers want the kitchen to look

maryland home purchased as-is for cash after kitchen was renovated

You heard that a neighbor sold their house for $400K. A house very similar to yours. When you check out the sold house listing on Zillow, it’s easy to see why!

They added stainless steel appliances, brand new cabinets, lifeproof flooring, granite countertops, and updates throughout! Wow!

Let’s Say here’s…

The kitchen in the house you need to sell

As you can see, the house needs repairs and updates to make it appealing to a new renter or homeowner. 

However, you just want to sell the house AS-IS, without cleaning or updating (maybe to pay off some debt or… finally move down to Florida 😉)!

And let’s say this is…

How buyers want the kitchen to look

You heard that a neighbor sold their house for $400K. A house very similar to yours. When you check out the sold house listing on Zillow, it’s easy to see why!

They added stainless steel appliances, brand new cabinets, lifeproof flooring, granite countertops, and updates throughout! Wow!


In order for us to also be able to sell your house for $400K, we’d need to make repairs and updates to bring the condition of your house to at least as good as your neighbor’s was when it sold.

Why?

 Well, would you want to pay $400K for a house needing repairs? When fully renovated houses sell for that price? 

Of course not!


Now you may be wondering…

“How much CAN I get for my house if I sell it AS-IS, without cleaning or dealing with costly renovations?”

“Should I Sell My House for Cash or List it AS-IS?”

Your Local Realtor: Thinks you they can list your house for $250K without you having to make any repairs.

So, why not just list it AS-IS?

Here’s where Creo Home Buyers comes in:

Maryland house purchased by local cash buyers with kitchen renovation before and after

Our Real Estate Agent: Tells us that in order to sell the house for $400K, it will need major updates to be as valuable as other recently renovated houses that have sold or are currently on the market.

Renovations such as fresh paint, granite countertops, life proof flooring, new cabinets, a new HVAC system, stainless steel appliances, new windows and doors, updated bathrooms, a finished basement, and more!

Our General Contractor: Tells us the total cost of all of these repairs and updates will be $90K and take 4-6 months.

Show Me the Cash Offer!

After Repair Value (ARV) =

$400K

Our Buying Costs (OBC) =

$10K (1-5% x ARV)

Cost of Repairs (CoR) =

$90K

Our Selling Costs (OSC) =

$40K (8-10% x ARV)

Our Desired Profit =

$40K


[ARV] – [OBC] – [CoR] – [OSC] – [Our Profit] = [Your Offer]

$400K – $10K – $90K – $40K – $40K = $220K

*The offer and costs in this example have been estimated for demonstration purposes.

Time to Take a Closer Look at Your Offer Prices

So, let’s assume your house is worth $250K as-is. Meaning if you listed it with an agent without making any changes you could sell it for $250K.

However, after subtracting about 10% (or $25K) in agent fees and other closing costs, you would get about $225K for it. That’s assuming it actually sells for $250K AFTER sitting on the market for an untold number of weeks or months! As most people do not want to or can’t take on a major project house when buying a home to live in.

And we already know, no one can guarantee the house will actually sell for $250K.

So, now it’s time for you to make a decision…

Option 1: Sell it for a guaranteed cash sale of $220K in as little as 7 days. Saving you a lot of time and stress.

Option 2: List it and hope to clear $225K after it sits on the market and goes through a lengthy closing process.


BUT WAIT!

What if we took a second look and realized we didn’t need to do all the renovations our contractor initially suggested. Well, now our cost of repairs is only $50K instead of $90K. What does that mean for you?

(Let’s take another look at that cash offer, shall we?)

Show Me the NEW Cash Offer!

After Repair Value (ARV) =

$400K

Our Buying Costs (BC) =

$10K (1-5% x ARV)

Our Cost of Repairs (CoR) =

$50K

Our Selling Costs (SC) =

$40K (10% x ARV)

Our Desired Profit =

$40K


[ARV] – [BC] – [CoR] – [SC] – [Our Profit] = [Your Offer]

$400K – $10K – $50K – $40K – $40K = $260K

Yes, you read that right. You’d get $35K MORE than if you were to list the house! (Remember, under the best of circumstances you would only get about $235K listing as-is with that local agent).

*The offer and costs in this example have been estimated for demonstration purposes.

My mother was a hoarder and left the house in bad shape. We knew it’d take a lot to clean out and prepare it for sale. Since no one in the family wanted to deal with it, we got offers from a few cash investors. We chose Creo because they were very understanding and professional in handling the situation.
