Do You Want To Sell Your House and Downsize?
Are you wondering “How do I sell my house fast so I can Downsize in Nebraska or the Kansas City metro area, for cash“ thinking that they’re just going to offer me some “lowball” offer? All of these home buying companies say they make “fair offers” for houses, some without even looking at the house.
Believe me, if a home buyer makes an offer on your house without looking at your house, they will typically renegotiate (and not in your favor) the price after they have an agreement with you. Don’t Fall For That!
How We Create Our Offers to Buy Your House
The only way that we’ve been able to be “in business” for more than 20 years, is to provide home sellers offers that work and provide a lot of value to a seller. Yes, I know you understand that we need to make a profit to stay in business, but if we didn’t make offers that made sense for a seller, we wouldn’t buy any houses.
Because we want to be honest and transparent with you, I want to share how we create our offers.
Our Offers Are Based On The Potential (or Fixed Up)
Market Value Of Your House
We start by looking at the “potential market value” or the “fixed up” value of your home.
We determine this value based on “comparable” properties in your area. We look at houses that have recently sold, ones that were on the market but didn’t sell, and ones that are currently on the market. We look at these properties to see the condition and the updates they may have had. Do they have new kitchens and bathrooms with granite or quartz counter tops? Do they have a “finish” just like a new home would?
We take into consideration the amount and cost of repairs and/or updates that we or any other buyer would have to put into the house to get it into its “nice” or potential value condition.
We then take into account the “transaction costs.” These are expenses such as the costs to buy the house from you (you do NOT have to pay closing costs, because we pay them), the costs to sell the house either sooner or later, the holding costs while we own the house (interest, insurance, taxes, utilities, etc.), and any other costs and fees that we may incur while we own the house.
And, as mentioned above, some amount for a profit. Keeping in mind that we have to make an attractive offer to you and provide benefits and services that you value, otherwise we would not still be in business after 20+ years!
If you enjoy understanding the numbers, you will appreciate the following information. We want to be up front and transparent with you. That’s why we want to show you exactly how we come up with our offer or offers for your house.
[ Your Offer ] = [After Repaired Value] – [Cost of Repairs] – [Transaction Costs] – [Our Minimum Profit]
In order for the above equation to make better sense, I will provide some additional information here:
This is what we estimate the market value of your house to be AFTER it is renovated and updated.
This is the estimated cost of what we or someone else would spend to renovate and update the house. We attempt to come up with the most accurate numbers we can that make sense. For example, a person could spend $20,000 to update a kitchen, but maybe wouldn’t add any more value than spending $15,000.
Although we don’t buy houses involving agents, we do have to pay fees to market a property and find a buyer when we decide to sell one. In addition to these marketing fees, we have to pay closing costs to buy and resell the property at some point, we typically have to pay some or all of the buyer’s closing costs (this is negotiable, but most buyers always ask for a seller to pay for these expenses, interest expense while holding the property, vacant property insurance, utilities, etc. These are all the fees that you do NOT have to pay, when you sell direct to us. This usually adds up to 12% to 15% of the selling price.
I’m sure you understand that like any business, we have to make a profit or we wouldn’t be able to stay in business. However, we have to keep our profit at a minimum so that we can provide a great offer to you and be competitive in the market.
In Common Sense English Please!
So what does this all mean in plain English? Simply this:
The potential market value of the house (in a “nice” fixed up condition), minus ALL costs of fixing it up, ALL holding and transaction costs, and an allowance for a profit, will be our offer. Its as simple as that!
Lets say that after looking at the comparables, we think your house is worth $200k in a “nice” updated condition if you were to list it with an agent (the “gross” selling price, or initial listing price). If everything goes smoothly, you would NET about $175k to $180k.
The unknowns with this scenario are: Will it sell and close in 2, 3, 4, or more months? Will the buyer want you to pay some or all of their closing costs? Will the buyer’s whole house inspection or appraisal discover deficiencies with your house that you will have to correct or give a credit to the buyer that you weren’t expecting?
Lets also assume that we agree that the house will take approximately $25k for repairs and updates to get it to the “nice” condition. However, because of the DIY home shows on TV, and other homes they are looking at, most buyers will see a repair and updating cost of $35k to $40k or more.
Potential Value: $ 200,000
Cost of Repairs: $ 25,000
Transaction Costs: $30,000
Minimum Profit: $15,000
If you list your house, you may Net a little more for the house, but there is no guarantee of when it will sell, or how much you will actually Net from the sale until you’re sitting at the closing table.
With our offer, you know when we are going to close (in as little as a few days, or on YOUR date of choice), you know the amount of cash you will receive at the closing table, you won’t have to do any repairs or updates to the house, you won’t have to prepare your house for showing or keep it in show ready condition, you won’t have to worry about the unknown results of a whole house inspection or appraisal, and you won’t have to worry about a buyer backing out or changing their mind at the last minute.

The Reason We Provide Great Offers
Yes, I realize that everyone says they can give the best offer, but I want to show you why we do everything we can to make this true.
The reason that our offers are so good, is that we do all we can to provide service and benefits that you value when we Buy your house, so that you can move into your new home or apartment community as stress and hassle free as possible.
First, we are a “real” Local Cash home buyer. There are many people and companies that advertise that they can buy your house, but many don’t have the financial ability or any intent to actually BUY your house. Once they get a contract to purchase your house, they shop that agreement to “real” home buyers that actually can close and purchase your property.
Because they have no “skin in the game” they typically make higher offers for houses, and then HOPE they can find a real buyer that will pay them more. If they have miscalculated their numbers or promised too high of a price, they won’t close, and will typically come back to you and renegotiate the agreement.
Either way, they have left you, the home owner, in a difficult spot. Especially if you have already started moving into your new home or apartment.
Second, most home buyers will only provide one offer……. a low cash offer.
Third, we are not just home buyers……… We want to provide the services you need to make the transition from your house to a new home or apartment community as stress and hassle free as possible.
We can provide assistance with estate sale companies, moving companies, senior placement services, senior living communities, and other services to assist in getting into your new home.
We understand that everyone’s needs are different when they have a house to sell. That’s the reason we typically can offer two or three different options for you to choose from. We can explain this thoroughly when you contact us or while we are at your house for the inspection.
