So You Want To Sell Your House Fast For Cash in Jacksonville FL?
Here you are wondering “How do I sell my house fast in Jacksonville for cash“, thinking that these FL cash home buyers will offer you an insultingly low number for your house. All these Jax ‘We Buy Houses’ companies boast fair offers, offers in 24 hours, and some even give offers without even setting foot in your property.
Believe us, they will not err in your favor. Those offers are inflated offers to keep you from exploring any other options. They simply want you to sign a contract, at ANY number. They want you to feel locked in and obligated. SO, when they change and drastically lower their offer after their inspection…they’re expecting that you’ve already made plans to move; told all your friends and family you’re moving…and feel like you have no choice but to sell to them and just move on.
We’ll do our inspection, in person, BEFORE we give our offer.
That way…the offer you get is the offer we pay at closing! Nothing changes!!
“Quick Sale Homes, Inc” stays in business by getting offers accepted, and the only way to do that is to give offers you’ll be happy with! We truly do our best to give you the highest possible offer we can give. Now you know why we have such raving reviews! 🙂
Our Offers Are Based On Your Home’s “After Repair Market Value”!
This simply means, we look at what the value of your home would be, completely fixed up. Based on this value we will formulate your offer!
Well, imagine you have a house that you want to sell…
Now, also imagine your neighbor, has the exact same, identical house as yours, except for a few upgrades he made… say, he added granite counter tops, removed wallpaper, applied a fresh coat of paint, put a new roof on, installed a new central AC system, put new flooring in, updated the kitchen, updated the bathrooms, and changed out all the light fixtures
Now Imagine he sold his house for $300K.
What Do We Know Now?
Well, we know if we make the same upgrades to your house (AFTER we buy it from you of course), bringing the house to a very similar condition as your neighbor’s house, we would also be able to sell it for $300K.
We know the Market value of your house if we fixed it up (in this case $300K), and we know the cost of repairs/upgrades. We can now make an offer that works for us. If this offer also works for you, great we close and you get your money at closing! As you can see, we make offers based on the market numbers, not based on how desperate you may or may not be to sell.
[Your Offer] = [After Repair Value] – [Cost Of Repairs] – [Our Selling Costs] – [Our Minimum Profit]
But in order for you to understand this we need to define some terms:
After Repair Value (ARV): This is what the market value of your house will be AFTER we buy and renovate the house. Yup we are just like your favorite HGTV flipping show.
Cost Of Repairs (COR): This is what our cost will be fixing/updating the house AFTER we purchase it from you.
Our Selling Costs: Although we buy houses without involving agents, when we sell them it’s a different story. Most every buyer has an agent (since it’s required for the seller to pay all agent’s commissions…why the heck wouldn’t they use an agent? It’s FREE for them!!) So we have to pay agent fees, closing costs, taxes, holding costs etc. These are all the fees you do NOT have to pay, if you sell your house directly to us ;). This is usually 10% all together of selling price. ( = 10% x ARV)
Our Minimum Profit: Yeah, this IS a business after all, and we wouldn’t be able to stay in business, buy more houses, pay contractors, plumbers, electricians, painters, roofers etc, if we didn’t make some sort of profit. However, we keep this to an absolute minimum so we can present you with the highest possible offer. See, our business model is structured around making many deals with a little profit per deal, and not a few deals with a huge profit per deal. This benefits all.
So what does this formula mean in plain English? Simply this:
The market value of the house (after we fix it up), minus ALL our costs fixing it up (including our profits), will be the offer. How simple is THAT! Congrats, now you are an expert at this! But want to be sure you understand it?
Let’s look at an actual example of a house we recently bought:
Let’s say this is your house in it’s current condition:
NOT TOO SHABBY, RIGHT? JUST NEEDS TO BE UPDATED FROM THE 80’S
Now remember, your neighbor with the exact same house as yours?
He got a new roof, updated the kitchen and bathrooms, put granite in, replaced all the flooring, etc. Well, this is what his house looks like after he did the changes:
Well, no wonder he sold it for $300K, it is gorgeous! WOW!
In order for us to also be able to sell your house (well, our house after we buy it from you) for $300K, we need to bring your house to the same condition as the house of your neighbor, or better, so that we can also sell it for $300K!
Because we will not be able to sell the house in this current state for $300K when all the other houses that are currently for sale in your area look as gorgeous as your neighbor’s. If you were the buyer, would you be interested in buying a house in lesser condition for $300K when a much nicer house sells for the same price? No, of course not!
Let’s say you contacted an agent and she/he says, that your house as is, in its current condition is worth $190K.
Now you have contacted the most awesome, friendly, amazing, highest ranking house buyers in all of Jacksonville… (us.. duhhh)! If you have not,… well, shame on you, you really should! 🙂
We would come to your house to do our evaluation. Prior to coming, we’ve already done our research to find out what needs to be done to the property so we can try to sell for $300k
By the end of the tour of your home, we’ve already visualized everything that needs to be done in order to update like your neighbors.
Once we’re done with our evaluation in your home…we’ll go to our car to input all the updates into our software. Next step is to call our contractors to get an idea of the repair costs.
The more accurate these numbers the more accurate (and the higher) your offer will be! Let’s say our contractor gives us a cost of repairs of $70K.
Now We Are Ready To Make You An offer!
Here are the numbers:
As you can see, we play by the numbers. We do not make offers based on how desperate you may or may not be. We don’t base offers on some percentage of the After Repaired Value (that is ludicrous). We simply add the numbers up trying our best to give you the highest possible offer we can make you, to make sure you will be happy, and thus to make sure the contract will be signed, so that we can get our next flip going! Makes sense doesn’t it!
Analyzing The Offer
So, the house is worth $190K as is, meaning if you listed it with an agent you could sell it for $190K. Yet after 6% agent fees and closing costs you would probably get about $174K for it, after it will be on the market for 4? 5? months! And no one can guarantee the house will actually sell.
So now you have to make a decision.
Sell it for a guaranteed sale for $160K in as little as 10-20 days, or a “maybe sale” for $174K hopefully within 4 to 5 months.
What If The Cost Of Repairs Was $30K Instead Of $70K?
Now things get interesting! Now the offer becomes:
Yup! That is $10,000.00 MORE than what the house is currently worth, and almost $30K more than what you would get if you had listed it with an agent (remember that you would only get $174K after all listing and agent fees). Again, our offers are based on the numbers, not on how desperate you are to sell.
