I’m sure you’ve seen a bunch of similar websites, or gotten some mailers from other companies claiming they will buy your house for cash, and that you can sell your house fast to them. Since you’re on our “How it works” page, I’m assuming that like most of our sellers, you’re probably still wondering… 

How does this whole “we buy houses cash” process REALLY work? It can’t be that simple, can it? 

Well, in short, yes, selling your home in florida fast for cash is a very simple and easy process – for YOU. For us, it’s a little different story. There’s a lot of work that goes on in the background on our end, to make sure that the home selling experience goes smoothly and easily for you. 

Well, that doesn’t really answer my question….

Yeah, I know. That’s why below I’ll give a clear, straightforward & simple explanation of how our cash home buying process looks like from beginning to end, and what you can expect to happen if you decide to reach out to us. Keep in mind that selling your home fast for cash may not be the best option for you. Please read below to fully educate yourself on how the process works, so that you can make a well informed decision when it comes to selling your home. 


Sell Your House Fast in Florida & Get a Great Offer!

What info will you need from me?

Do I get my cash offer right away on the phone?

The short answer is no… We do not give the exact offer over the phone right away. We can, however, give you a range of where our offer will most likely be at. 

Why not? I know other “We Buy Houses” companies give an offer right away over the phone, or promise to give you a cash offer for your home within 7 minutes!

Well, the problem with that is that most of these companies will just give you a bogus inflated offer, try to lock you up in a contract, and then use an “inspection report” to ask you for a huge price reduction at the end of their inspection period. We’ve seen this tactic used A LOT of times by many investors in our market, and we hate it! We hate that it gives our profession such a bad reputation, and the pure dishonesty that goes with it. 

That’s why… 

When you call us, our House Helpers will just get the basic info from you, to make sure that working with us really makes sense for you. If you feel that the options we have available are worthy, our House Helpers will schedule an offer appointment (can be done the same day, either by phone or in person) for you with one of our experienced Buying Managers – Christian or Max. Before the appointment, he will do in-depth research on the property so that he can give you the highest and best offer, suited for your individual needs!

How do I know you’re not going to make me a lowball offer? 

I’m glad you asked – It’s in our best interest to make you a good offer that you are happy with because that’s how we stay in business. No rational person would accept a ridiculous low ball offer, so it wouldn’t make sense for us to make you one! Our business is buying houses (or condos, townhouses, etc.), and we can’t buy houses if our offers don’t get accepted 🙂

One thing to keep in mind is that we have several different options as far as what type of offer we can make you. If you choose the fast cash offer for your home, our offer will be fair, but it will not be “full market value”. However, we’ve made our business as efficient as possible so that we can afford to make higher cash offers compared to other home buyers!

Do you provide other options or only cash offers? 

Great question. In the beginning, we used to only offer cash for properties with the intention of renovating them and reselling. However, over the years, we’ve developed our team and capabilities to be able to serve more homeowners in a variety of different situations. We’re now able to help you even if you are not in a rush to sell, but prefer to get more for your home vs. a discounted cash offer.

Below is a short summary of our main offer “packages”. We do have additional options that are not listed below. If you have more questions about any of these options, or how we can help with your unique situation, our “House Helpers” will be happy to answer them when you call or submit your information on one of the webforms on this page.

If you scroll a bit lower on the page, you’ll see a detailed explanation and an actual case study of how we calculate our “Standard” cash offer.

So, how do you calculate your offer to buy my home for cash?

We make our cash offers based on 4 things:

How we calculate our cash offers for florida homes

The “After Repair Value” (ARV) of the property This is what the property will be worth on the open market after we finish renovating it, just like how you see on HGTV. From this value, we deduct the costs detailed below to arrive at the standard cash offer amount.

Cost of Renovations (COR) In order for us to maximize the value of the property, we need to renovate it and make it look like it’s brand new. 

Our Selling Costs This is what it would cost us to resell the property after we buy it from you. Although you don’t get charged Realtor commissions or closing costs when we buy it from you, we, on the other hand, have to pay those costs when we resell the property. We also have to pay holding costs such as taxes, insurance, HOA fees etc. Our selling costs usually come up to about 10% of the resale price, or the ARV. 

Our Minimum Required Profit Yeah, I know, it sucks that we have to make a profit 🙂 but we really do. We wouldn’t be able to support our families, pay our employees, pay our contractors and buy houses, if we didn’t make a profit when we resell them. However, we keep our profits to a minimum so we can afford to pay you more for your house and get more of our offers accepted!
Through the years, and after losing over $500,000 on properties that we shouldn’t have purchased (we’ve made some dumb mistakes…), we learnt that our minimum required profit needs to be about 10% of the ARV, or $10,000 minimum. That means that if we buy a property, fix it up, and then try to resell it for $300,000, we need to make at least $30,000 on the transaction.

Ready for the Magic Formula?

Our Standard Cash Offer for Your Home =

(After Repair Value) x 80% Minus (Cost of Renovations)

For example – Let’s say your home, after it’s all fixed up and remodeled, would be worth $300K. And let’s say it needs about $40,000 in repairs, our cash offer to you would be calculated like this: $300K x 80% = $240K, minus $40K in Repairs = $200K Cash Offer.

What happens if I accept your offer? How long does the closing process take?  

Opening Escrow & Ordering Inspections

Once you decide to sign the simple 2 page purchase and sale agreement, our Buying Coordinator, Paul, will reach out to you to introduce himself. He will also send the contract to the title company for them to order title and lien searches. Paul will schedule with you an inspection of the property so we make sure our repair estimates are on point. 

Timeline = Normally 24-48 business hours


Conducting Inspections & Reviewing Title / Lien Searches

Here’s where we conduct the home inspection, review the inspection report, and also review the title and lien searches that the title company and the city provide. If anything comes back on those searches that needs to be addressed, Paul will contact you to determine the next steps. Sellers find us to be very creative and able to find a solution for almost any title/lien problem!

Timeline = Normally 1-2 Weeks


Scheduling the Closing & Getting You Cashed Out!

We’re ready to close and get you paid! Paul will reach out to you and see when would be the most convenient date/time for you to close. We can either schedule you to go to the title company, or send a mobile notary to your location. Once you sign closing docs, the cash is either wired to your bank account or you get a certified cashier’s cheque from the title company. This usually happens the same day, but can sometimes be delayed to the next business day.

Timeline = Normally 1-7 Days

Why should I sell to you and not list with a Realtor?

Well, maybe listing with a realtor IS really the better option for you. For some people it is. If we feel that listing with an agent would make more sense for you, we will happily let you know that on the initial call. In addition to buying your home, one of the licensed Realtors on our team can also list it for you 🙂 Below are some of the main differences between selling to Florida Cash Home Buyers, vs. listing with an agent.

Selling to Us

  1. You Pay Zero Commissions or Closing Costs
  2. Guaranteed Offer. No need to wait for months to find a buyer
  3. Close within 3-30 days or on your time frame
  4. Sell in “As-Is” condition without making ANY repairs
  5. No showings, open houses and endless walkthroughs
  6. No appraisal or financing contingencies – guaranteed cash offer

Selling with a Realtor

  1. You normally pay 6-7% commission and 2-3% closing costs
  2. Sometimes you need to wait 6-12 months to find a buyer
  3. Closing can take 60-90 days after accepting an offer
  4. Most buyers ask for you to make some repairs before closing
  5. Sometimes more than 20-30 showings and open houses
  6. Deals often fall through because of appraisals and banks

SCAM ALERT!!! – How do I know you will really close and that this is not a scam?

How can you protect yourself from falling for the scam artist trap? 

Quite a few ways actually…
