So How Does It Work…

We’re sure you’ve seen plenty of signs that say “we buy houses” or received a mailer from a company that wants to purchase your property. They usually say something like “we buy houses for cash” or that they can help you “sell your house fast in any condition.” But how do you know they can actually do that? And how does it work?

How, exactly, does the “we buy houses for cash” process REALLY work? Surely it’s not THAT EASY, is it?

We’re going to level with you…it absolutely is! Selling your house fast for cash is an easy process for sellers just like you. We handle the hard work, deal with the documentation, and manage the entire process so you don’t have to worry about a thing. There is a lot that goes into buying a house for cash, but we’d rather handle the heavy lifting so the process can be smooth and effortless for you.

So far, so good, but I’m still not clear on how it works…

The entire process of selling your house fast for cash can feel like a lot of moving pieces and you probably have a lot of questions remaining. The good news is that we’ve almost certainly heard the questions before and we know the answers to all of them. Below you’ll find some of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to how we buy houses and what the process looks like. We want to make it clear that we understand selling your house for cash isn’t always the best option, depending on your situation, so we want to provide you with all the information needed to make an informed decision about whether or not you should sell your house for cash to us.


What information will you need from me?

First, we’ll need you to contact us with information about your house and situation. You can do this in a number of ways. You can call us, text us, or email us during business hours. One of our customer service team members will be able to assist you, or you can fill out a form here that lets us know more about your property. If you’d rather call, we promise not to take up too much of your time. We simply need to know basic information about you and the property. We need to know things such as the size of the house, how many bedrooms and bathrooms there are, any updates you’ve done recently, and anything else that is good to know. We’ll also be happy to answer any questions you have.


How long does it take to get an offer?

It’s very important to us that we give you the best offer we can for your home, which is why you won’t receive it right away. If any company promises to give you an offer immediately, you might want to be wary of where they’re pulling that number from. We’ll want to do some analysis by comparing your house to others nearby in similar condition in order to understand what they’re selling for and what makes the most sense for both sides. But don’t worry abou waiting too long, we will almost always get an offer to you within one business day!


Why don’t you give me an offer right now? Other “we buy houses companies” promise to give me an offer in 5 minutes.

If any company promises to give you an offer on your house within minutes, you should know that the chances that the offer will still be viable when it comes time to sell is very unlikely. Instead, those kinds of companies want to lock your property up with them so no one else can make you an offer. Then, after an inspection, they’ll bring that offer way down. It really frustrates us to see these companies use these kinds of tactics but we think it’s important to be aware of them. We recommend that you do your research and choose to work with a home buyer who has a strong reputation and very positive client testimonials. Also, remember that investors like us want to make a profit on the homes we buy, so if someone offers you above market value for your property, that doesn’t make a lot of business sense and is probably not legitimate.

And so…

When you work with us, we’ll give you the best offer possible that not only makes sense for you and your family but also works for us. If you feel that the offer we make you are to your liking, then we’ll make an appointment to take a look at the house (either in-person or via video online) in order to confirm everything. Remember, you don’t have to fix the house or clean it up! That’s because we buy houses as-is!


Are you going to make me a lowball offer?

At Offer House, we have a very specific and upfront goal. We want to make sure any offer we make to a seller will work for both you and us. We are committed to helping you sell your house fast while also making sure that we are paying a fair price. That’s why, when we do our analysis, if we find that our offer doesn’t make sense for you, we’ll let you know. We will always be upfront and honest with you, regardless of the numbers.

We also want to note that there are multiple options available to us when it comes to buying your house. If you do accept our cash offer, we want you to know that it won’t be a “full market value” offer, though we do pay more than other cash home buyers in Missouri. We also have some other options that will give us the opportunity to pay more for your house, but these options won’t be cash offers that you get quickly. Let our team know when you call us that you want us to discuss some of these potential options with you in order to find out if they’d work.


So how do you come up with an offer to buy my property?

We make our cash offers based on these four things


how we make a cash offer 1

After Repair Value “ARV” of the Property

ARV (After Repair Value) is how we define the value of the property after it has been renovated and remodeled. We calculate ARV based on local comparable sales that have sold, fully renovated, in your neighborhood or area.

Renovation Cost (Cost of Repairs We Make)

After we buy a house, we’ll have to make repairs and upgrades in order to improve its market value. These upgrades can be anything from replacing carpet to repainting the house to changing the fixtures to redoing the landscaping.

Selling Costs That We Incur

Once we’re ready to re-sell the property, we know that there are certain costs involved. You will never pay any commissions or fees when you sell your house to us, but we will probably have to pay some of those costs on our end, including taxes, insurance, HOA fees, and other things. All of those costs need to be considered.

The Minimum Profit

We’re a business so we buy houses to support ourselves, employees, and families. That’s why we need to consider potential profits whenever we buy a house for cash. That said, we want to make it clear that we try our best to keep our profit to a minimum in order to ensure that we’re paying as much as possible for your house.


Here’s how we calculate our cash offer

Our Cash Offer = After Repair Value (ARV) – (Renovation Costs + Our Selling Costs + Our Minimum Profit)

For Example, let’s say the After Repair Value of your property is $200,000 after we’ve made our renovations. But we had to pay $25,000 in repairs in order to make it market-ready. Here’s how we would calculate our cash offer to you: $200,000 – ($25,000 in repairs + $15,000 in selling costs + $18,000 minimum profit) = Our cash offer would be $142,000.


So there you go! That’s how we calculate cash offers! We always try to make you the best offer we can possibly make while also taking care of our employees and team. Regardless of the situation, we will work so hard to make the very best offer we can for you and your family. Most sellers that we work with decide they’d rather work with us over a real estate agent because of our hassle-free process, the lack of commission fees, and the value of our cash offer. We recommend that you look at our reviews and testimonials to see what others are saying about working with us.


I’ve accepted your offer, now what? How long until we can close?

Any reputable “companies that buy houses” will tell you that the closing process will take approximately 2-4 weeks, depending on the specifics of the situation. This assumes that you want to close right away, but you also have the option to move slower and take your time. Whenever you need to close on your house, we’ll help to figure out the best day for you. Here’s a step-by-step rundown of the closing process as it often occurs.

Step 1 to sell Open Escrow & Order Inspections

Once you decide you’re going to accept our offer and sell your house for cash, we will send you the purchase agreement and required paperwork to our local title company and we will deposit earnest money with them. Then, a member of our team who specializes in closing will touch base and make sure you have all the information you need. They’ll also let you know if there’s anything else the title company needs from you. The title company will then order a title and lien search. While we’re waiting, we’ll schedule an inspection date, and that can be completed in-person or virtually.

Timeframe: 24-72 Hours


Step 2 to sell Conduct Inspections & Address Any Title Or Lean Concerns

Once the inspection has been completed, we’ll know what kind of repairs and renovations will be needed from us. This may require an in-person home inspection to confirm. We want to respect everyone’s personal space during this time and would wear face coverings and remain socially distant during any necessary in-person visit. If the title company lets us know about any title or lien issues, they’ll want additional information in order to correct the problems. Otherwise, the title is clear and the sale can now move forward.

Timeframe: 1-2 Weeks


Step 3 to sell Scheduling The Closing & Getting You Paid!

Once everything in the above steps is complete, we’ll schedule the closing and pay you your cash! We can either close to the title company or they can send a mobile notary to you. Once all the documents are signed, your money will be wired to your bank account (or we’ll cut you a check from the title company). It’s entirely your call. You can usually get paid the same day you sign the documents, but it is possible that it can take one business day in extremely rare cases.

Timeframe: 1-7 days


Why should I sell to you vs list with a realtor?

We can understand that listing your house with a real estate agent feels like the way to go. And to be fair, if we get the sense that listing your house with a real estate agent would be better for you, we will be sure to say so. That said, here are some benefits and concerns that come with listing with a real estate agent compared to selling your house for cash with us.

How can I be sure you’ll actually close and this isn’t a scam?

We understand your concerns. There are plenty of people out there who have a lot of “get rich quick” ideas and have considered some shortcuts that can negatively impact you. There are a lot of shady companies out there pretending to be legitimate cash buyers who don’t even have the money necessary to buy your property. It certainly sounds scary.

That’s why it’s so critical to do your research and make sure any buyer you work with is legitimate. You should be less concerned with finding the buyer who will make you the biggest offer and more concerned with finding the buyer who can actually complete the sale when you need it. This also includes real estate agents too, as some of them might make promises about sale prices that they can meet. Meanwhile, your home sits on the market for months and you’re paying extra costs. You could have avoided all that stress by being sure you’re working with a legitimate person or company.

Offer House isn’t like that. We have the experience needed to close on your property…and we’ll give you cash for your house!

So what can you do to avoid falling for a scam?

The good news is that there are a few things you can do.

See how long the buyer has been in business – It’s pretty easy to do this. Check the Better Business Bureau to see if they have a listing and rating. Get a sense of how long they’ve been in business. If it’s only been a short time, that could be a sign they’re not experienced enough to properly close on your house fast.

Check their reviews and testimonials – Any cash buyer who has been around for even a little while will have a presence online and a reputation that you can check. Check social media platforms and review sites like Facebook, Google, and Yelp in order to learn what people are saying. If you can find them on LinkedIn, you should be able to see their employees. When you’re looking at reviews, check for mentions of a failure to close on sales. That could be a problem if so. If you don’t see any reviews, that could also be a red flag.

Do they actually own property? – Take a look at local property records to find out if they actually own real estate in your area. If you don’t see anything, ask them why that’s the case. It’s possible that they own property under another name, FYI.

Ask for proof of funds – We should note that it’s easy to fake a proof of funds letter. However, just by asking for it, you could weed out any inexperienced buyers who don’t have the funds readily available. If they delay before providing a letter to you, it’s understandible to wonder why.
