Selling My Home Fast, For Cash


You probably got here thinking “How do I sell my house fast in Washington for cash”, assuming that all these WA house buyers would offer you an insultingly low price for your house. All these Washington home buying companies boast fair offers, offers in less than 24 hours, and even offers without setting foot on your property.

Do you really believe them?


One thing I know, they will not error in your favor. Those offers are inflated offers to discourage you to look for more offers from other companies. They will try to have you sign a contract and after the contract is signed they will attempt to lower the offer using the results of an inspection. Don’t fall for that!

That’s the wrong way to do it. But, what’s the right way to sell my house?

How We Make Offers to Buy Your WA Home

It’s in OUR best Interest to Give You Our Highest Possible Offer


Our Offers Are Based on Your Home’s “After Repair Market Value”!

This means we look at what the value of your home would be, all fixed up, and then we use that value to calculate our offer!

How does it work exactly?

Sell my house in Washington Number 1First, imagine you have a house you want to sell.

We Buy Houses in Olympia number 2Second, also imagine your neighbor has the exact same, identical house as yours, except for a few upgrades he made. Let’s say he added granite counters, removed the old wallpaper, painted inside and out, put a new roof on, and nice new hardwood floors.

We Buy Houses in Tacoma 3Finally, imagine that he sold the house for $350,000.

What does that mean to you?

Well, we know that if we make the exact same upgrades to your house (after we buy it from you, and you get paid), we would bring your house up to a similar condition (or comparable house) to your neighbor’s house. We should also be able to sell it for $350k.

So…

We know the Market Value of your house if we fixed it up ($350k in this case), and we know the cost of the repairs/upgrades. We can now make an offer that works for us. If the offer also works for you, great! We would close and you get your money at closing. As you can see, we make offers based on the market numbers, not how desperate you may or may not be to sell your house.

The Offer

If you love math, you will appreciate this section. We value honesty and transparency. We are more than happy to share with you exactly how we build our offers. (Yes, we believe offers are built, like Legos)

But to make it clearer, here is a breakdown of the terms.


Sum It All Up For Me, PLEASE!

So what does this formula mean in plain and simple English? Great Question – Just This:

The market value of the house (after we fix it up), minus ALL the selling costs, repair costs, and profits, will be the offer. How simple is that? Want to understand it even better?


This is an actual house we bought recently and how it happened.


Sell my house in Washington Number 1 Let’s say you are a Landlord and this is your rental:

Good bones, but some tenants were kind enough to let several animals live in the house with them. It could be ok, if someone could get the smell out, clear all the garbage, redo the trim, doors, landscaping, and – of course – all the flooring.

We Buy Houses in Olympia number 2 Now, remember your neighbor with the same house as yours? He got a new roof, updated the bathrooms and kitchen, put in granite counters, replaced the carpet, put in hardwood flooring, and painted? Well, this is what his house looks like after the changes:

We Buy Houses in Tacoma 3 Well, no wonder he sold his house for $350k…it is AMAZING! Wowzers!

In order for us to also be able to sell your house (our house after we buy it from you) for $350,000, we need to bring your house up to the same condition as your neighbor’s house – or better – so that we can also sell it for at least $350k!

Why?

Because we will not be able to sell the house in it’s current state for $350k when all the other houses that are currently for sale in your area look as gorgeous as your neighbor’s. If you were a buyer, would you be interested in buying a house in lesser condition for $350k when a much nicer house sells for the same price? No, of course not!

So, the next question you’d ask is:


OK, if the house after is completely fixed and updated would sell for $350k, how much would it sell for as-is?

We would come to your house, with our contractor and if we can, our agent. (We bring our contractor and our agent to the walkthrough, so that our agent tells our contractor what needs to be fixed (she/he knows what buyers are currently looking for) and what does not need to be fixed (to keep repair costs low).

Our Agent: Tells us, that we need quartz or granite counter tops, because the neighbor across the street that sold his house for $350k also had quartz as well as hardwood floors, removed the wallpaper, installed new appliances, etc.

Our Contractor: Gives us an accurate COR (Cost of Repairs). See, we know exactly what we will do to the house the minute 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 be.

We Buy Houses in Washington Company
Yes, that is the same house as the other pics above.

The more accurate the Contractor repair numbers are, the more accurate (and higher) your offer will be! Let’s say our contractor gives us a cost of repairs of $63k.

Now We Are Ready to Make You an Offer!

Here are the numbers you have been waiting for:


As-Is Value = $240k

ARV (After Repair Value) = $350k

COR (Cost of Repairs) = $63k

Our Selling Costs = 10% x $350k = $35k

Let’s Say Our Minimum Profit on this Property = $40k


Analyzing the Offer

Ok, so the house is worth $250k as-is, meaning that if you listed your house with an agent, the agent “thinks” the house would sell for $240k. Yet, after the 6% agent commissions and all of the closing costs and taxes, you will probably get about $225k for the house. How long will it be on the market before you close? 3, 4, or 5 months? Ask your agent to guarantee when the house will sell…see what they say 🙂

Now it is time to make a decision.

Sell it for a guaranteed $212k, in as little as 10 or 20 days, or a “maybe sale” for $225k, hopefully closing in 4 to 5 months.

Decisions, decisions…


BUT WAIT!!!

What if the Cost of Repairs was $30k instead of $63k?


Things get even better.

As-Is Value = $240k

ARV (After Repair Value) = $350k

COR (Cost of Repairs) = $30k

Our Selling Costs = 10% x $350k = $35k

Let’s Say Our Minimum Profit on this Property = $40k

But, wait! That is $5k more than my agent said the house would sell for BEFORE commissions came out! And $20k more in my pocket than selling my house on the market!

Yep. Again, we base our offers on the numbers, not how desperate you are to sell your house fast for cash.

Why Our Offers Are Better.

Yes, we know….EVERYONE says they have the best offers. But we will do better than saying it. We will show you why this is true, or at least that we try to make this true 😉

The primary reason our offers are better is that our offers are based on the value of your house as if it were already completely fixed up and updated. Yep, we figure out how much your house would be worth if it was completely updated. Then we factor in the cost it would take to fix up or update your house.

Second, as you can see, the cost of repairs matters a whole heck of a lot. If we can keep the cost of repairs down, we can obviously give you more cash for your WA house, as we explained using the equation above.

So…we try to do as much work ourselves so that we do not have to pay expensive contractors to do everything – which keeps costs down and offers up!

Obviously, we cannot always do this, because we buy several houses each year, but we can genuinely try to keep contractor costs as low as possible so we can get you the highest number for your house in cash here in Washington.

Why do we go out of our way to give you the highest possible offer for your house?

Well, think about it for a second! If we can give you more than our competition can, you will sell to us – not them! And that is what we want. The more houses the faster we can help others with our mission.


For this exact house, the seller accepted our offer. They needed to sell fast, didn’t want to deal with agents, and wanted the least amount of hassle while being able to move on their timeline. The review below is genuine!

Ryan was very professional and delivered on all his promises. Will definitely refer his services to everyone.

Here are a Few More Questions Sellers Ask:

How do you sell a house by owner (FSBO)?

Selling your house by yourself is completely doable. It takes a lot of work and research, but you can do it.

  • First, you need a solid understanding of your market.
  • Find out how much the house is worth, as-is. Don’t just think your house is worth a lot because you like it, or because Zillow says so. Banks do not care what websites think your house is worth. Banks that buyers will use only care about comps and condition. Sellers often think their house is worth a lot more because “it is prettier than my neighbors”.
  • Pay a flat fee to list your property on the MLS.
  • Learn how to effectively market the property.
  • Learn how to negotiate effectively.
  • Hold open houses and learn how to handle the tough questions asked during the open houses.
  • Make sure you know all your laws in the area pertaining to real estate transactions.

Are there closing costs when selling by owner?

Yes. There will be costs associated if you sell your house yourself. Attorney fees, excise taxes, title insurance, escrow costs, and more closing costs…as well as additional cost incurred each month just for owning the house. When selling yourself, there are no agent commissions, unless you want to offer a buyers agent commission, but there are still significant costs involved.
